HOUSTON — Houston native Hannah Storm’s reaction to the Deshaun Watson news pretty much summed up the way most Texans fans felt when they heard our quarterback has asked for a trade.How did Houston native @HannahStormESPN take the “Deshaun Watson has demanded a trade” news? pic.twitter.com/77hcmz0ouRHouston fans love @deshaunwatson and he has proven his love for Htown.
Their frustration is directed not at him, but the organization that has failed him.
And having another huge Houston star want to leave, on the heels of James Harden, is really tough.Watson wants out and no one can blame him.

“I process it by going to Hawaii for a week.
I probably should have stayed there,” Watt said.
“We were enjoying mai tais by the pool, and that was a good way for me to cope with it and I might just head back there.”The Mai Tai’s in Hawaii were far more therapeutic!
Thanks for having me @jimmyfallon, always a pleasure and a privilege to spend time with you my friend.

Some of y’all “browns” are funny https://t.co/laJXBSY2EuOh, and thanks for rubbing salt in our wounds, you guys.Deandre Hopkins, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, George Springer, Gerrit Cole, and now possibly Deshaun Watson.
Rough times in Houston sports.Deshaun Watson threw 95 TD in his first 50 starts.
That's more than many other superstar QBs over their first 50 starts.

Pure insanity! Teams search their whole existence trying to find a QB this good!No, we can’t. Sometimes, you gotta laugh to keep from crying.David Culley: "We can turn this team around together Deshaun."

In two year.
They forced out a top 3 wide receiver and a top 5 franchise QB.
Both generational talent.
Clown show front office.

Deshaun Watson being traded by the Houston Texans is in the best interest of the Indianapolis Colts
Listen closely, intrepid Colts fan.
The Houston Texans do not have to trade Deshaun Watson.
He’s officially requested a trade, yes, but that does not mean Houston must acquiesce.
The NFL season is still many months away.
The Texans might hope Watson’s anger eventually subsides and they can salvage their relationship with the 25-year-old face of the franchise.
New coach David Culley is said to have a fan in Watson and the same goes for Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly, who is being retained by Houston. Furthermore, unlike the Detroit Lions, the Texans have not announced intentions to trade their quarterback.
But it’s possible they hang on to him and see if he relents.
If he doesn’t and is hellbent on not playing another snap for the Texans, they might simply start docking his pay/fining him rather than trade him. All of these scenarios are possible. But they’re also not what we’re here to discuss.
What you want to know is how a potential Waston trade would affect the Colts.
Let’s take a look at the fallout from a Watson trade with Indianapolis’ interests in mind.This one seems highly, highly, highly, highly improbable.
But until the Texans say, “We’re trading Deshaun Watson but not to anyone in the AFC South,” then, during a pandemic, who am I to tell you not to dream big? Frankly, the benefit to the Colts doesn’t need much explanation.
Colts fans have watched Watson for years now; you know how good he is. But just for fun, let’s take a look at the bananas numbers he delivered last season.
Watson led the league with 4,823 passing yards and 8.9 yards per attempt, posted a ridiculous 33-to-7 touchdown to interception ratio and completed 70.2% of his passes. More Colts coverage:Only two quarterbacks completed better than 70% of their passes AND averaged more than 8.0 yards per attempt: Watson and presumed MVP Aaron Rodgers.
Watson also ran for 444 yards, meaning only he and 2018 MVP Patrick Mahomes were responsible for producing 5,000 yards from scrimmage this season. In summary: He’s already an MVP-caliber quarterback, and at just 25, might not have reached his ceiling yet.
After Mahomes, he’s probably the next quarterback you’d pick to build your franchise around.
In the highly, highly, highly, highly, highly (added one more for effect) scenario the Colts acquired Watson — assuming they didn’t have to give up their entire team to make the deal — they’d be instant Super Bowl contenders. With No.
1 a pipe dream (sorry, it’s true), this seems more like something Colts fans can realistically cheer for: Get Watson out of the AFC South, and it’s a win.
Before the Houston thing went sideways, it looked like Watson was going to be tormenting the Colts for years.
Maybe the next decade, so seeing him leave the division is almost certainly a long-term win for the Colts.
How big of a win depends largely on whom the Texans find to replace him.
If they somehow landed another franchise-caliber quarterback (doubtful, they’re hard to find), the effect on the Colts would be mitigated to a degree.In the more immediate future, the impact probably isn’t as substantial as you might first think.
The reality is the Texans are a trainwreck.
They were bad last season (4-12) and, even if they kept Watson, would probably be bad again this season. The Colts swept the season series with them last year (close games, to be sure) and you’d probably expect them to do it again next season given the fact the Texans have almost no premium draft capital and aren’t in position to do much more than start to rebuild this offseason. So when it comes down to wins and losses — all that really matters in the NFL — a Watson trade wouldn’t be a huge short-term gain for the Colts. In the long-term, though, it takes one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL out of the division.
Assuming Houston has a hard time finding another, everyone in Indianapolis should be rooting for that result.A caveat before we get started here.
We don’t know for sure the Colts are in pursuit of Stafford.
It feels like they should be, and possibly they are, but there’s no guarantee.But let’s operate under the assumption they are interested in acquiring the 33-year-old Lions signal-caller.
A potential Watson trade probably has a marginally positive effect on that endeavor.The two ways to look at this are: a) A team who needs a quarterback (i.e.
New England, Washington, Chicago) acquires the offseason’s top prize (Watson) and takes itself out of the running for Stafford, therefore reducing the number of his potential suitors and maybe (doubtful) lowering the price of acquisition; or b) A team with an incumbent (i.e.
San Francisco, Miami, Carolina, Denver, New York Jets, etc.) decides it wants to upgrade the position and acquires Watson, therefore making another starting quarterback available (assuming the incumbent was not involved in the trade).Option A would seem to be better for the Colts in their pursuit of Stafford, though maybe not an enormous benefit.
Hypothetically, if there were six teams in pursuit of Stafford, then one acquired Watson and reduced it to five, obviously that helps, but probably not significantly.
The Lions aren’t going to spin a wheel and trade Stafford to the team it stops on.
They’re going to trade him to the team that makes them the best offer.
One fewer suitor doesn’t guarantee the return for Stafford will be reduced or that the Colts are going to have the best remaining offer. Scenario B can go one of two directions.
If, say, the Jets acquire Watson and Sam Darnold isn’t involved in the trade, that probably puts another starting-caliber quarterback on the market.
That theoretically helps the Colts, too, because they can either target a player like Darnold or hope another team bidding for Stafford pursues the younger, cheaper quarterback.Of course, if Darnold or in Denver’s case, Drew Lock, or San Francisco’s case, Jimmy Garoppolo, are included in a trade for Watson, then it’s sort of like scenario A, one fewer QB-needy team remains.
The worst-case scenario for the Colts would be a team with a good quarterback in place coming out of the woodwork (i.e.
Cleveland, Las Vegas) and swapping with the Texans for Watson.
That would leave the same number of quarterback-needy teams in the market pursuing Stafford. Admittedly, this last point got a little convoluted, but that was to be expected given the uncertainty surrounding which teams will pursue Watson and/or Stafford and what the price of acquisition will be. The truth is there’s no way to know what the full ramifications of a Watson trade will be for Indianapolis until, and unless, it happens.
However, the easy conclusion is this: Deshaun Watson no longer playing for the Houston Texans is undoubtedly, in the best interest of the Indianapolis Colts.Follow IndyStar Colts Insider Jim Ayello on Twitter @jimayello. .
