Deshaun Watson Has Special 2020 Goal For Texans
Deshaun Watson has a special 2020 goal for the Houston Texans. It is simple, concise, and easy to understand.
The 24-year-old wants to win a Super Bowl – and he will settle for nothing less.
Speaking to the media this week, Watson indicated that at this point in his career, it is all about capturing that elusive championship.
“Now that’s my priority,” he said.
“That’s for sure. I’m trying to pull a big three. I won a state championship. I won a national championship. So of course I’m trying to get a Super Bowl. I’m trying to be legendary.”
But not just with one title.
“I’m trying to create history and make it a dynasty,” he added.

Watson won a state championship when he was in high school. He also won a National Championship with Clemson in college. It stands to reason that, given his pedigree, he would want to get to the top of the mountain in the NFL and walk away with the biggest title of them all.
Deshaun Watson Is An Elite Player On A Good Team
Watson often gets forgotten when discussing the league’s best players, despite being objectively one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.
Last year, his Houston squad was up 24-0 over the eventual champion Kansas City Chiefs at one point in their AFC Divisional Round game.
Although that lead was ultimately squandered, it did show that the Texans can be a force in spurts. This year, it will be about staying healthy and playing consistently.
Watson recorded 3,852 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 picks in 2019. It will be interesting to see if he can replicate those numbers or do better after the changes his team made at wide receiver.
During the offseason, the Texans shipped DeAndre Hopkins off to the Arizona Cardinals. They ultimately replaced him with Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks.
Houston will kick the year off with a game against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs on the road. It will be a very telling outing.
It goes without saying that Watson and Co. are the favorites to emerge out of the AFC South. The division is weak and that is to expected. But can they hang with the defending champions? That is the big question.
Watson has some lofty goals for 2020. Will he be able to achieve them? Time will tell.
