Last offseason Bill O’Brien made an enormous decision. He turned DeAndre Hopkins into David Johnson, Brandin Cooks, and Ross Blacklock. Cooks became the de facto WR1, running deep crossing route after deep crossing route to cross the 1,000 yard barrier once again. Deshaun Watson was ridiculous, putting the ball on him and pegging Cooks’ small hit box.
O’Brien added another weapon for Watson in Randall Cobb. Let’s all laugh and laugh and laugh in unison at those who thought spreading the ball around would be better for Watson than having Hopkins around. Cobb had a disastrous first season in Houston.
