Rhett Lewis and James Palmer talk about the Texans' new-look offense for 2020 and what they expect to see with new OC Tim Kelly calling the plays. They also share their thoughts on the Texans having 3 receivers that run sub 4.4 in the 40 yard dash and how their speed will impact the offense. Also, James Palmer talks about Randall Cobb's ability to excel with a QB that makes a lot of plays off script, referencing the years he played with Aaron Rodgers. Current Buccaneers head coach, Bruce Arians, believes Watson is the best off script QB in the league now, so the addition of Cobb could be huge for the Texans.
