So far, so bad

When it rains, it pours for the Texas A&M Aggies

Things are not going too well in College Station these days. The Aggies dropped their fifth straight game with a 41-24 loss to Florida at home. That ties the longest losing streak for the Aggies since 1980. Who saw this coming? Definitely not Jimbo Fisher, not the A&M fan base and hell not even most of the national media. Texas A&M was the preseason #6 team in the country. Yet here we are, A&M needing to win out to become bowl eligible in Fisher’s fifth season.

The issues with this team are too many to count at this point, and to make things worse this past Saturday a flu outbreak ravaged the team. When it rains, it pours. To make matters worse, five-star freshman quarterback Connor Weigman was one of the players affected and did not play. The week after Coach Fisher finds his stud QB, he can’t play and back to Haynes King we go. When it rains, it pours…you get the point.

It’s pretty predictable when a team already very thin due to injury, loses about 10-15 players due to an illness, that they are going to struggle. For the first half of the ballgame, it was pretty close as the limited Aggies got into a little track meet with the Gators, going into halftime with the lead. Coming out of the intermission, the Aggies' offense sputtered while the Gators continued to take advantage of the depleted Aggies' defense. The Ags’ ended up getting shut out in the second half in route to the Maroon and White’s fifth-straight loss. Talking about these losses gets tiring, and I can only imagine what it’s like for that squad inside the Bright Complex as they turn their attention to a road trip to Auburn.

Coming into the season, the Ags road trip to the plains was an easy chalk-up as a win. However, I think it is going to be very difficult for Jimbo Fisher and the Ags to take this one on the road. Auburn does a good job of running the ball and what does A&M struggle with defensively? Stopping the run… Jimbo is going to have his work cut out for him to keep a bowl game in play. I see the Aggies struggling yet again and losing the battle of 3-6 teams. Auburn wins 24-17 and A&M falls to 3-7.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
