O'Brien on the QB battle in Houston

Texans coach Bill O’Brien gives insight on the quarterback situation in Houston including the development of Deshaun Watson.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Bill O'Brien said the Texans' stance as an organization is that standing for the national anthem is important, but he also believes in "everyone's right to free speech." "I do think that there's a separation between politics and football," O'Brien said. "In the end, it's about lining up and trying to win the game, but I grew up in a family that made sure that we all understood the rights of people, to never look at the color of another man's skin but to see what was in that man's heart, that woman's heart, to find out what it meant to trust somebody. Were they loyal? Were they good people? It had nothing to do with what they looked like. At the same time, like I said, this organization believes strongly in the national anthem and believes in standing for the national anthem. We'll see how it goes from there."

O'Brien reiterates Savage is Texans' starter

Bill O'Brien reiterated that Tom Savage is the Texans' starting quarterback, saying that Savage has "really got good command of our offense."

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

Bill O'Brien continues to be clear: "Tom [Savage] is the starter." "Tom is playing well this camp. Tom has really had a good camp. He's only thrown three incompletions in two games. He's really got good command of our offense. "Like I've said, Deshaun [Watson] is a very, very good young player who has a great future in this league, let's put the cards on the table. That's what it is. But Tom has been here for four years. The way we want to play, the style we need to play relative to getting guys lined up, relative to cadence, relative to protection points and route reads and putting guys in the right spot, Tom is ahead of Deshaun on that."
