It may be unfair to say one player is more important than another on any given team. But when you have a player of Deshaun Watson‘s caliber, it’s hard to disagree.
The Houston Texans have never in their history had a quarterback show the promise that Watson showed before having his season ended by an unfortunate injury. The rookie showed so much skill and winning attitude that he had some believing the Texans were finally going to fulfill their potential.
Now with the season over, the most exciting thing to watch for aren’t the trade rumors or draft prospects, but Watson’s recovery progress.
What every fan wants and hopes for is to be able to watch their favorite players perform at their highest level. and Watson’s winning attitude will ensure that he will return to his dynamic best. With more time to familiarize himself with the team’s offense, this coming season could show how great of quarterback Watson could one day be.
While there are other important pieces to the team, such as receiver DeAndre Hopkins and defensive stalwarts J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney, none of these players ever created as much hope as Watson did.
With his team solely dependent on his performances, Watson show incredible poise while leading the Texans to great wins this past season. The most important thing he brought though, was his winning attitude. He never gave in to any defense and always looked for a way to make a winning play.
That attitude is what made the whole city fall in love with him, as finally someone with the confidence and skill of a winner had arrived.
That is what most will be anxious to watch next season. The hope that Watson brings with his never say never attitude and unwavering swagger will be in full display this coming season.
