By now, you’re quite familiar with what happened at NRG Stadium this past Sunday. After an entire offseason of proclaiming that Tom Savage was “THE GUY,” Bill O’Brien decided to bench his starting quarterback at halftime of the first game of the regular season in favor of rookie Deshaun Watson. Although O’Brien hasn’t confirmed it, all signs point to that benching lasting at least through the beginning of tomorrow night’s game in Cincinnati.
Publicly, Tom Savage has said all the right things over the last few days, expressing his willingness to help the team any way he can. His agent, however, has chosen a different path, taking to the media today to defend his client, reportedly with Savage’s blessing. You can find the entire interview here, but the Chronicle has several excerpts from Neil Schwartz’s exchange with Mike Florio.
