Texans turn up the music to get Deshaun Watson ready for Seattle

The quarterback who ripped to shreds (twice) the best defense in college football gets his first crack on Sunday at one of the best defenses in the NFL. In their own building. Their very loud and raucous building.

And so, to prepare Deshaun Watson for his first trip to Seattle, Texans coach Bill O’Brien ordered an increase in the volume of the music played at practice.

Just crank the music as loud as it’ll possibly go,” O’Brien said Tuesday, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I love the music. I have different tastes in music and I love music, all kinds of music. I don’t pick that music. I have a resident DJ named Jenerro that picks it for me. He’s a good guy. He does a good job. He takes requests, so if you guys have any requests. . . .”

In Seattle, there will be only one sound playing: Crazy loud noise. Non-stop. Watson and the offensive line will have to deal with it, most importantly when they’re trying to communicate before the snap, and at the snap.

Watson has taken the league by storm, which surely will make the Legion of Boom even more motivated to give him a proper welcome to the NFL. If he can play well and, somehow, win there, the Texans will deservedly generate even more buzz as the playoff push comes.

    That place is going to be so friggin’ LOUD this Sunday…..

    Unless they’re down by 2 scores. Then everyone will go back to their phones.

  2. NRG stadium gets pretty loud too, especially when the roof is closed. Don’t think noise will be a problem for the Texans.

    No that is San Francisco…. I mean Santa Clara sorry.

    I’m not sure how you got the two teams mixed up they are very different at this point.

    Do you not remember the Guinness Book of World Records going back and forth from Seattle to Arrowhead Stadium? Seattle is much louder then NRG because of how the building was constructed to send all the sound waves back down to the field.

    Even more though is the fans know how to be relatively quiet for the offense and crazy loud for the defense.

    Maybe Watson is mature beyond his years and can handle it but most rookie QBs have major issues because they can’t communicate whatsoever. I have been impressed with him so far. We will see how it goes soon enough.

    The Texans won’t even score twice.

  6. Saw a stat today that opposing rookie quarterbacks are 0-4 in Seattle since Russell became Qb in 2012.

    Good luck… and here is to no injuries.
