Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer had one of the worst performances in NFL playoff history on Saturday, but he doesn’t think it will define him.
Hoyer said after his five-turnover performance in a 30-0 loss to the Chiefs that he shouldn’t be remembered for the way he played in that one game.
“There’s no one who feels lower than I do right now, but one day does not make my career. One game does not make my career,” Hoyer said.
Maybe that will prove true, but that one game will raise questions in Houston about whether Hoyer is the answer for the Texans at quarterback. If he had played well on Saturday, he probably would have headed into training camp in 2016 as the Texans’ starter. But the way he played may push the Texans to draft, sign or trade for someone else who can be their starter.
If the Texans are motivated to bring in Hoyer’s replacement, then Saturday’s game may well be the game that makes, and breaks, Hoyer’s career.
