Tom was ‘savaged’ early and it probably marks the end of his starting in Houston.
Tom Savage completed 7-of-13 pass attempts for 62 yards before getting the hook in favor of rookie Deshaun Watson. Perhaps it was the 6 sacks, or to be more specific, the manner in which he acquired them. To call Savage lethargic in the pocket may be an understatement.
Head coach Bill O’Brien has yet to become the quarterback guru that the Texans had hopes for when hiring him. Perhaps Watson can break that trend but Savage should be done for 2017.
