DeAndre Hopkins zings Texans while responding to Patrick Mahomes deal

The last time that wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins played a game, he was a member of the Texans taking on the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Hopkins and the Texans took a 24-0 lead early in that game, but they wound up trailing by halftime after four touchdown passes by Patrick Mahomes wiped out the early deficit and sent Kansas City on their way to a 51-31 win.

It would be the last game Hopkins played for Houston as he was traded to the Cardinals in March amid reports of a bad relationship with Texans head coach Bill O’Brien. Hopkins hasn’t spent too much time looking back on his time with the Texans, but he did glance back at that final game in a Tuesday tweet referencing Mahomes’ contract extension.

“24 reasons why Mahomes deserves that. 0 Doubts he will win more Super Bowls,” Hopkins wrote.

Hopkins won’t face either of the AFC clubs this season, but the Texans will get a chance to come up with a better result when they return to Kansas City for the first Thursday night of the season.

  1. uh oh! there’s that D-word again. we already know that philadelphia is going to be a dynasty, just like seattle was and denver, the genius rams, and packers surely couldn’t miss with rodgers. then there’s baltimore with their new unstopable offense. if everyone has a dynasty can there really be a dynasty? oh ok, THAT Dynasty, the 20-year one, well good thing that’s over with, now maybe everyone can have one.

  2. This player is not a team player – he is one of the most selfish clowns out there.

  3. Hard to be a team player when he was the only one continually doing anything for the team. I side with Hopkins. For the level of clown he may be, he’s not half the clown O’Brien is.

  4. Classy way to throw your entire previous team under the bus there, Hopkins.

    Maybe if Hopkins hadn’t completely disappeared in the last quarter + of the game, things could have turned out differently.

    Just another guy who’s won nothing having a lot to say about it.

  5. I’ve been wondering, why does Deshaun Watson get a pass for blowing a 24 point playoff lead? He was also mostly mediocre against Buffalo until they choked and dreadful in the 2019 playoff game against the Colts. Not saying he’s bad, just not top 5 like some think.

  6. How anyone can criticize Hopkins is beyond me. To put up the kind of numbers he has with the bums he has had at QB for the majority of his career is insane. Every other WR in his class has had consistent QB play their entire careers.

  7. No problem with Hopkins. Every time I see him play he brings it. He’s the best WR in football. I’d rather see a new player focus on his new team, but this sounds personal. I’d bet he’s not directing that toward his ex-teammates either. I don’t know all sides to the story, so I just go by what I see on game day.

  8. Sans Hopkins, Deshaun Watson will be exposed as a Dak clone.

    You read that here first.

  9. Let’s review how Watson “blew” that 24-0 lead by looking at the Chief’s remaining drives:

    TD
    TD
    TD
    TD
    TD
    TD
    TD
    FG
    PUNT
