Joe Buck Sparks Controversy With Deshaun Watson Comments (Video)

The Carolina Panthers defeated the Houston Texans 24-9 on Thursday Night Football.

Unfortunately, the game did not come and go without controversy.

Notably absent on Houston’s side, despite them desperately needing a competent quarterback, was Deshaun Watson. The 26-year-old of course has been out of action for the entirety of this young season after demanding a trade and finding himself at the center of more than 20 sexual misconduct claims.

During Thursday’s game, announcer Joe Buck went off on Watson in a way that immediately garnered attention on social media.

The fan reactions spoke for themselves:

Here are the facts: Watson has been accused of sexual misconduct and sexual assault in 22 civil lawsuits. He has offered some interesting excuses in his defense, along with a bunch of text messages that he claims exonerate him. Fans can draw their own conclusions based on the evidence at hand.

Either way, though – clearly this is a very odd situation all the way around. And the fact that Buck was brave enough to address it deserves respect.
