Nah, Dalton was really their first choice. :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rofl:
After Brett Favre turned them down. :P

Could be worse, a different Texas QB and Clemson grad:

Lawyer says lawsuits against Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson up to 12
And all 12 have the same lawyer who's a friend of the team owner.....smear campaign?

The whole thing is odd and fishy.

Buzbee said during the news conference that his office has been in contact with police and that he would provide information to them about the women who intend to sue Watson. The Houston Police Department said in a statement posted to Twitter later Friday that it was unaware of any contact it had with Buzbee regarding the allegations or the filings of any incident reports. Buzbee later wrote on social media that the contact he referenced earlier was with a detective he knows who reached out to him.

Idk, same lawyer is common with these kinds of things and it's hard to get 12 to lie. What would the upside be for ownership to smear, distract and devalue their star? Regardless, it's more of a mess for the Oilers than, say, hiring Dalton . . . probably :P .

Allow me to translate:


Buzbee said during the news conference that his office has been in contact with police and that he would provide information to them about the women who intend to sue Watson. The Houston Police Department said in a statement posted to Twitter later Friday that it was unaware of any contact it had with Buzbee regarding the allegations or the filings of any incident reports. Buzbee later wrote on social media that the contact he referenced earlier was with a detective he knows who reached out to him. Buzbee already got caught lying.

Buzbee also said he is not aware of any police reports filed before the civil suits. None of the alledged victims was injured sufficiently for them to believe it was worth filing a police report.

"That's going to be our next step," Buzbee said, noting he will do so when his clients are ready but without offering a timeline on when that would be. That would be when he's finished writing the story.


Buzbee said Watson's representatives have known about the allegations for more than a month. That was when Buzbee sent the first demand letter.

"We actually had contact with Deshaun Watson's agent/lawyer from Los Angeles, who minimized these allegations, who did not take them seriously," Buzbee said. "We wanted to resolve this matter without a lawsuit, without any publicity. We knew that once we filed a lawsuit -- Texas, of course, has an open courts provision in the constitution, so all lawsuits are public. We wanted to avoid that." So we told them if they paid up bigly, we wouldn't say anything.

Hardin on Friday issued a statement saying the allegations against Watson are "meritless." Reading from defence lawyer script 1-1.

"I'm extremely proud to represent Deshaun Watson and wholly stand behind him against what we believe are meritless allegations," Hardin's statement said. "However, we will wait to comment in detail until we've completed our review of the numerous, evolving allegations from Mr. Buzbee. We will respond next week and ask you to keep an open mind until we do so." We don't know if there's any credible evidence yet.

After Buzbee's announcement of the first lawsuit Tuesday, Watson responded on Twitter by saying that he rejected "a baseless six-figure settlement demand" and that this is "about clearing my name, and I look forward to doing that." At the time of his statement, Watson said he had not seen the first lawsuit. Reading skills not being the best, Watson thought a "lawsuit" was a po-lice uniform.

"I have never treated any woman with anything other than the utmost respect," Watson said in his statement. I be gentle with my hoes and don't give them more than they want.

In Friday's news conference, Buzbee said one of the women said Watson was referred to her by a Texans athletic trainer, while another woman said Watson was referred to her by Quincy Avery, Watson's personal quarterback coach and athletic trainer.

Buzbee said that when he filed the first lawsuit on Tuesday night, he was representing only two women. Since then, the other women have come forward. After a notice went around "Have you seen this quarterback? You could be eligible for a substantial award."

...
The seven lawsuits filed so far depict a pattern of sexual assault against massage therapists in the Houston area. One woman alleges she was forced into oral sex during the course of the massage. Six of the lawsuits allege these were one-time encounters with Watson, but one woman alleges she was sexually assaulted by Watson on multiple occasions. That lawsuit says the first massage was booked through the spa where the licensed aesthetician worked. The six other lawsuits allege Watson first inquired about the massage through Instagram direct messages. "We don't do no happy endings."

One might wonder how it is that an NFL quarterback can't get laid without engaging in assault or unwanted attention. But he wouldn't be the first NFL guy with violence toward women issues. Any case, he's probably in worse shape now after the Atlanta spa killings than he was before.

Not necessarily. If the detective contact really happened that IS an HPD contact, and Buzbee might not have known whether the detective ever made it official.
Buzbee also said he is not aware of any police reports filed before the civil suits. None of the alledged victims was injured sufficiently for them to believe it was worth filing a police report.
It's common given power disparities like between an NFL QB and service industry workers. Plus, not all torts are crimes.

Ouch, a little racist there?

It's common for real victims to only feel safe in numbers and/or to feel compelled to step up when other women are being attacked as being liars.

... One might wonder how it is that an NFL quarterback can't get laid without engaging in assault or unwanted attention.

Never been my thing, but some men prefer a purely business relationship. If it happened, it's valid to ask why he didn't just choose pros, though. Edit: As GoCubsGo says. Who does he think he is, Gov of NY?

But he wouldn't be the first NFL guy with violence toward women issues. Any case, he's probably in worse shape now after the Atlanta spa killings than he was before.

Good point.

In contrast to the Watson allegations:

New England Patriots' Justin Herron hailed as hero by police for helping stop attempted sexual assault

:clap:

Note to wannabe elder abusers: Make sure there aren't any 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds NFL offensive tackles around first.

Da Bears have a storied history of whiffing on QBs by draft, trade or free agency. It's almost a perfect record.

The list of mediocrity for this year is long. It'll be a placeholder year while searching for a long term solution they won't find.
Just watched bits of this on ESPN2:

30 for 30: The '85 Bears (2016)

Fun. I'll have to watch the whole thing sometime.

One of the comments made was that given what the D was doing to opposing QBs, they couldn't expect McMahon to last. 80s rules were different.

Good lord yes.

Two of the most brutal things I think I've ever seen in football was Wilbur Marshall's hit on Joe Ferguson and Charles Martin's mugging of Jim McMahon.

Of course I was cheering wildly for the first one and out for blood on the second one. It ended McMahon's '86 season and we got Doug "Bambi " Flutie at quarterback.

Brett Favre: It’s ‘Hard to Believe’ Derek Chauvin Intentionally Killed George Floyd
Panthers legend Steve Smith blasts Brett Favre for Derek Chauvin remarks

Carolina Panthers franchise-great Steve Smith has never been the timid type. When he deemed an opponent or even a teammate (sup, Ken Lucas) to be out of line, he let them know about it.

Glad to see things haven’t changed!

89 took to Instagram on Wednesday night to express his thoughts on Hall-of-Famer Brett Favre’s recent comments regarding the killing of George Floyd. Smith blasted the former Packers quarterback, who seems to be on a crusade to have his mouth produce as much cretinous trash as his right arm did lousy interceptions.
Image

I have so much respect for the career you had. HOF, awards, etc.... However on this subject, yo Mr. Favre STFU respectfully real talk! Privilege ass!
This is quite the sanctimonious move for Favre, now a self-proclaimed disenfranchised football fan that doesn’t like politics in his sports. Unless, that is, they’re his politics.

Well, at least it’s good to know Smith still respects what Favre did on the field. Perhaps that tiny pittance is enough to keep him from icing up after that verbal backhand.
Asshat Favre is entitled to his hurtful opinions, but he's an idiot for not noticing that Chauvin's most serious conviction was for "second-degree unintentional murder".
