History says Houston Texans should be concerned about Bryce Young

CAUSE FOR PAUSE

Bryce Young's been the best QB in college football over the past two years. And there's certainly a chance he'll be a great pro. But historically, it’s been rare for a QB 6'1 or shorter to succeed in the modern NFL.

There are exceptions – Drew Brees, Michael Vick, Russell Wilson, Jalen Hurts – and the increase in opportunities for shorter QBs we’ve seen the past few years - Kyler Murray, Tua Tagovailoa, Baker Mayfield - could continue to change that.

We're still dealing with a small sample size. That said, those exceptions have generally A LOT of help. Either around them, or in the form of freak athleticism. Will Young get that from the Texans? And does he have that kind of athleticism?

When the Astros signed Josh Hader to anchor the back of the bullpen with Ryan Pressly and Bryan Abreu, we thought the club might have the best 'pen in MLB.

But at this early stage in the season, nobody is confusing these guys with Octavio Dotel, Brad Lidge, and Billy Wager.

Heading into the ninth inning on Monday night, the Astros handed the ball to Hader trailing the Braves 2-1. Instead of keeping the game close and giving the Astros' offense one more chance, the Braves teed off on the closer putting the game out of reach and ultimately winning 6-1.

Hader has one save on the season with an ERA over nine. Which has us wondering, do the Astros have a Hader problem?
