J.J. Watt: What we’re doing is not working

The Texans changed their approach on offense for Sunday’s game against the Vikings, but the result wasn’t any better.

Minnesota got out to a 17-6 lead in the first half and held off a comeback attempt in the second half to send the Texans to a 31-23 loss. That leaves the Texans with an 0-4 record on the season and it’s left one of their stars looking for further changes to the way they’re doing business.

Defensive end J.J. Watt said after the game that “what we’re doing is not working” and that the team “obviously have to do something different” if they are going to reverse the course of this season.

“All I can do is control what I can control,” Watt said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I’m going to try to find a way to get a win. This is terrible. It’s brutal. It’s depressing. This sucks. I don’t know any other way to put it.”

The Texans host the Jaguars next weekend and things will be even more depressing in Houston if they can’t find a way to beat their fellow AFC South club.

  1. You think? Look no further than your incompetent GM / coach. The man isn’t good at either position.

  2. Maybe don’t pay 70 percent of your salary cap to three Players and trade your best player away.

  3. The coach has too many responsibilities so he cannot be an effective NFL level coach.

  4. The GM killed team chemistry by the trades made, and this time as H\C, O’Brien cannot bail himself out this time.

  5. Well I’d say that having BOB the BOOB running the show with his lackey in the front office may not have been the best choice. Why did BOB all of a sudden turn into Belichick or Andy Reid with the ‘total control’ thing? I thought you had to earn that, but not in Houston I guess

  6. The only difference between O’Brien and Belichick or Reid, is the other coaches have won every super bowl with a HOF QB. O’Brien has an average QB at best. Remember how everyone had been saying how bad of a coach Andy Reid was, up until he got Mahomes? Certainly you can remember two years ago. Now Andy’s a genius.

  7. Being winless is bad enough, but dropping a game to the hapless and tasteless Vikings is the sure fire sign your team has hit rock bottom.

  8. @charliecharger

    Deshaun Watson is above average and he would flourish at New England or Kansas City. Let’s remember Andy Reid was winning games with Alex Smith before Mahomes.

  9. Watson is exposed. Hopkins covered for him by opening up the offense and bailing him out with great catches.

  10. The Texans should trade JJ Watt before everyone realizes his injuries are derailing his career. Not even sure he pressured the QB once or, did anything to thwart the rushing game today.

  11. When is Texans ownership going to wake up and see that Bill is single handedly ruining that franchise and especially that great great young QB? He and the rest of those players deserve better. Maybe they’ll get a frenchie changing player with their high first round pick…. Oh wait…….
