Texans @ Chiefs observations

Fri Sep 11, 2020 11:04 am

Chiefs:
Mahomes is still really good, even if he looked a bit rusty.
Kelechi Osemele is a monster
Clyde Edwards-Helaire keeps playing like that, and he might be looking at ROY

Texans:
Watson didn't look very good at all.
Johnson looked pretty good.
Fuller better stay healthy or they are screwwwwwwwwed
JJ Watt looks like he's losing a step

I didn't think Watson was that bad ... the only real shit throw I recall was the wounded duck that got intercepted, and that only happened because he got blasted as he threw

I'm a huge Watson fan, but I didn't think he played all that well either. What worried me most was that he seemed a little SLOW to me, haven't seen that before. He wasn't running away from defenders on scrambles, they were keeping right up with him.

I noticed that too. His movements looked labored and he seemed to not know where to go with the ball at times. I'm a huge Watson fan too, but he looked like a different QB out there without being able to chuck it up to Hopkins or effectively run.

Texan WRs had some key drops. Good to see David Johnson looking he may be healthy.

Texans looked out of sync to me and losing Hopkins probably the main reason why.

KC has weapons, weapons, weapons, damn.

Watson looked very average without hopkins. But with no preseason I don't think we will have a real good idea how teams are until about week 6.

It's still early - can't take away all that much from 1 Game - He had several games like this last year too - and that was a good year overall
