Bill O'Brien: Tom Savage has 'good command of our offense'

"Tom has really had a good camp". The coaching staff is pleased with his progress and he has taken a majority of the preseason snaps and while O'Brien recognizes the Texans QB of the future is Watson, that future isn't now. He has only thrown three incompletions in two games.

On Tuesday, O'Brien announced that Tom Savage, the 2014 fourth-round pick who started two games last season, will be under center for the Texans' regular-season opener.

While emphasizing that Savage, not rookie Deshaun Watson, is the team's number one, O'Brien said that the 27-year-old has enjoyed a good camp. In Saturday night's win over the New England Patriots, Savage completed 8-of-9 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. "He's really got good command of our offense".

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said that quarterback Tom Savage is the team's starter, per the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. "Let's put the cards on table - that's what it is".

Given that Deshaun Watson was drafted 12th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, it's clear that he's destined to move into the starting role at some point down the road.

With high hopes of Watson, all eyes have been on the rookie quarterback during the National Football League preseason.

O'Brien is confident in Savage's knowledge of the offense, which is the primary reason he's the starter despite giving up assets to acquire Watson.
