Not a huge fan of Chris Simms in general – he’s a liberal little asshole. I like his father a lot more. That said, I like what he has to say about my boy here.
Madden ’19 drops August 10th, just four days after I return from Los Angeles. I can’t wait to get going and start playing this game.
The guy knows his football…
The Texans Madden 19 ratings were released today. I posted the top players in the image above. Deshaun Watson kind of got snubbed a little bit, but at the same time it’s tough for me to wish for more since the guy only saw about a half season’s worth of action in 2018.
I’ll be rolling with the Texans this fall. I’ll document the games here and post the games on YouTube. It looks like the Texans have a full fledged gamebreaker in Deandre Hopkins; and three defensive players over 90.
I like John McClain. He’s been around since the Houston Oilers were in the league. He’s got 10 thoughts before training camp begins in just a few weeks.
One stood out to me.
Watching Watson’s progress.
What we saw during a seven-game, six-start snapshot in his rookie year was captivating. He spent the offseason rehabbing his right knee but participated in the OTAs and minicamp. He was kept out of team drills to protect his knee. By the time camp begins, it will have been nine months since Watson underwent surgery for a torn ACL. He knows the system. Coach Bill O’Brien knows Watson’s strengths and weaknesses. Watson is familiar with his teammates, and they’re familiar with him. As he continues to make progress, one thing will be obvious: The Texans could have the most prolific offense in the NFL.
If this guy stays healthy, the pundits think the Texans are going to the playoffs.
Adrian Peterson wants to be a Houston Texan, or at least it appears that way. Lamar Miller says he would be open to it.
“I used to look up to Adrian Peterson growing up,” Miller said. “He runs the ball hard. He’s a great running back. He’s been a great running back in this league for years. It would be good to have him join us, just his leadership, seeing the things he’s done in previous years, that I feel like I could probably learn from him. It would help us out as a team.”
This would definitely add some star power to go along with Deshaun Watson and the rest of the Texans core.
I don’t see this happening in the end, but the Texans would be wise to move on this. They will need depth behind Miller, and Peterson proved down the stretch with Arizona that he could still play a little bit in 2017.
It’s always nice to see this, it’s as voted by his peers.
