The Deshaun Watson era for the Houston Texans will officially begin tonight against the Cincinnati Bengals.

There has been a lot of speculation about whether or not Watson would officially be named the starter, but it looks like head coach Bill O’Brien finally made the call, according to a Thursday morning tweet from ESPN reporter Adam Schefter.

I couldn’t be more excited. I loved watching Watson play for the Clemson Tigers during his time in college. You can nitpick at his game all you want, but the guy just finds a way to win.

He reminds me a lot of Russell Wilson, and that’s as good a compliment that a rookie quarterback can get. No matter what happened during his time in college, Watson still fought tooth and nail to find a way to win.

The Texans have been a joke on offense these past few years. I think those days are officially over. Bring on the Deshaun Watson era.
