  • Stephen A.

  • You think the Texans gave J.

  • J.

  • Watt a different request for his release versus decisions request to be traded?

  • You think that's treated differently?

  • Hell, yeah.

  • Without question.

  • Now you could make the argument that J.

  • J.

  • Watt has been there significantly longer, and his years of service have a lot to do with the fact that they elected to make, you know, toe just let him go.

  • You can also make the argument that his position, while very, very important, isn't as important as the quarterback position.

  • So they have an opportunity to recover as a franchise from losing him rather than if you lost the talent at the quarterback position.

  • That of DeShaun Watson.

  • But again, the times that we're living and does have does have something to do with what we're talking about here.

  • D Shawn Watson wants out.

  • You come out, you hire coach 65 years of age, 27 years in the league.

  • We wish to coach David Cully nothing but the best Andi.

  • Certainly he's put in the work to earn this opportunity.

  • Nobody's rooting against them, but between Rosario, the GM, and then you drive, you hired David Cully is the head coach.

  • You bring these guys, and the Sean tells you he doesn't want to be a part of the organization any longer.

  • He wants out, and you are dogging in your approach, at least publicly, that you're not about to let him go.

  • But then J.

  • J.

  • Watt meets with you and and asked, I want out.

  • I'd like you to let me out of my contract and they said OK, and so when you look at the different, that's how folks on the outside is gonna look at it now.

  • There may be a legitimate argument, very legitimate argument.

  • We don't know what the hell is going on without inside the walls of that organization, and we get it.

  • But from an optics perspective, J.

  • J.

  • Watt Ah, star, in my estimation, obviously a three time defensive player of the year.

  • We know what he brings to the table.

  • But he's a guy that, incredibly loved within the community attached to the franchise, who also happens to be white, simply makes a request for you to let him go and you say Okay, no problem.

  • But the short watch it once out and you've met, let it be known to the world.

  • We ain't about to let you go.

  • You ain't going no damn place.

  • That's how it looks.

  • And that's a very, very bad look for an organization that has done a lot over the last few months, if not years, to look very, very bad.

  • You said you said it right, Steven, you think about this.

  • This is exactly one month ago today.

  • Think about how much stuff has happened with the Houston Texans in one month.

  • On January 15th, Schefter put out that cryptic tweet that said, If you thought to Shawn Watson was angry on a scale of 2 to 10 when they traded D hop, it's now a 10 of 10.

  • That tweet set it off because the Sean then doubled down on the tweet and essentially confirmed it.

  • That was January 15th.

  • Everything that Stephen A has said has happened in the last month.

  • The social media extraction, the hiring of David Cully, the situation with Eric B.

  • Enemy, Jack Easterby, Nicosia.

  • Everything here has gone down the trade request.

  • It's all gone down in the last month, and I agree with your longevity argument for sure that Sean has been in the league.

  • Four.

  • J J.

  • Has been in the league 2.5 times that and the other guy that asked for his release or to be traded.

  • Matt Stafford has been in the league three times as long as DeShaun Watson Last week, Stephen A.

  • You said on first take a Texas sized swap.

  • D Shawn for Dak.

  • Make it happen.

  • Well, this morning, Stephen A.

  • We asked our front office insider, Mike Tannenbaum, if he would take Stephen AIDS advice and make that deal.

  • Here's what a guy that's actually made deals for two NFL franchises, the Jets and the Dolphin, said about Stephen, a statement.

  • I'm a huge dak Prescott fan.

  • I'm probably in the minority from a standpoint.

  • I think it's close.

  • I think some people see Watson and Prescott.

  • I'm much closer.

  • That's a really interesting question.

  • Um, I think they would both have to be there, sign which, obviously, Dak isn't so.

  • That's a fascinating dynamic.

  • If I was Dallas, I would do it.

  • And if I would Houston, I would actually star Lee.

  • Consider it Stephen A.

  • You said.

  • What's the feasibility, though?

  • That it happens?

  • I don't think there's a strong feasibility to it because again, that is not signed.

  • Andi, that's the situation right now.

  • What I'm saying is, in my fantasy world, listeningto think about what I'm trying to say it.

  • Shawn Watson is a star.

  • Dallas America's team, which they don't deserve that model.

  • They don't deserve that name, By the way.

  • I mean America, I thought, was the land of prosperity in the land of opportunity, not the land of mediocrity.

  • Don't get me started with that.

  • But nevertheless, the bottom line is that Shawn Watson throwing toe a gallop going toe on Amari Cooper, throwing toe a CD land with Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield.

  • They could do something with that offense.

  • This brother is spectacular, and I think that the Shawn Watson being in Dallas would be a lovely thing, one of that Prescott style, which is more unlikely.

  • First you got to get him signed, but secondly, and more importantly, the one thing we can't accuse the Texans off is that they're hesitant to give up the money because they clearly was willing to give the Shawn Watson that money.

  • And so the chances are they'd be willing to give that Prescott those dollars as well.

  • And not only that, that Prescott.

  • No disrespect, I'm not.

  • I don't mean it as a negative.

  • But he's not somebody that ruffles feathers as the star quarterback of an organization.

  • Think about the whole Colin Kaepernick thing.

  • Think about social Justice, issues and things of that nature.

  • It's that Prescott who's never called out Jerry Jones.

  • It's that Prescott, who's never said a negative word about his organization, that Prescott, who's been known to toe the company line and be highly professional and efficient in terms of his performance and his dedication to his craft and really, that's about it.

  • The only noise that that Prescott has made in his career is that he refuses to sign a deal for five years with the Dallas Cowboys because he wants four instead of five.

  • And that's through his agent that Prescott has made zero noise whatsoever in his professional career.

  • Matter of fact, one could argue, considering the Games, that he hasn't been up until this this first injury of his career.

  • He made back pages when he could.

  • He missed a practice for crying out loud.

  • That's how reliable he waas the Onley noise that that Prescott has ever made is when, in the initial process of Kobe, he had a party at his house and they were saying they didn't know whether it was 10 people, 20 people, 30 people.

  • But he had a party at his house in the off season.

  • Uh, that was it.

  • That's the only negative noise that that Prescott has made.

  • So if you're the Houston, Texas, and you want to start quarterback somebody that can ball But at the same time, somebody that you can trust is gonna go along to get along.

  • Uh, that's not gonna ruffle any feathers with the organization.

  • I don't know anybody that they could come up with better than that.

  • Prescott.
