With summer approaching, I can’t currently decide whether to strap my kids in the car and drive to Wally World, or sit here and let them hit me with sticks while we sweat by the pool.
Likewise, Texans coach Bill O’Brien is in no hurry to decide who his starting quarterback will be.
According to Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle, O’Brien said he didn’t have a timetable for making the decision between Ryan Mallett or Brian Hoyer (or ostensibly but probably not Tom Savage).
Hoyer and Mallett have alternated through OTAs working with the starters, and it’s hard to look at either body of work and declare a favorite.
So letting them compete through OTAs and the preseason only makes sense.
If nothing else, it will make an interesting subplot for “Hard Knocks,” assuming they can take a break from bug-eating.
