Watson can lead Browns to Super Bowl, says Orlovsky
“They can win this division and go to the Super Bowl.” That was the opinion shared by NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky when discussing Deshaun Watson during his appearance on ESPN. Rise. As DW4 waits for the NFL to decide what action, if any, it plans to take against him regarding his 22 outstanding civil cases, the Browns franchise’s new QB attended OTAs, where he met with some of his new teammates and prepared to complete fieldwork for the first time in over a year.
With uncertainty remaining as to when DW4 will be able to adapt, Orlovsky offered the following take:
“If he plays 12 games or less, there is no chance because the division is good, the conference is too good. But if he gets 14 games, they have a chance to eliminate the team that has a NFL MVP in Baltimore. . They have a shot at knocking down the team that represented the conference last year in the AFC when it comes to the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s such a good player. An offensive line and two good receivers in Amari Cooper and draft pick David Bell, really good tight ends, active defensive line, young and talented secondary If he can play a good number of games, they can win this division and go to the Super Bowl.
Is Deshaun Watson part of the elite?
Although he failed to take the field last year, the general consensus across the league is that Watson remains an elite top 5 QB. This belief is based on his play during his first four years in the league.
Since entering the league in 2017 as the 12th draft pick of the Houston Texans, Watson has put up incredible numbers. He has an overall QBR of 104.5, which is good enough for second place on the all-time list and a 67.8% completion percentage, which puts him first all-time.
Watson is undoubtedly a phenomenal talent, and it’s not just with his arm that he can hurt teams. He is a true double threat and was the fastest QB to reach 100 passes and 15 rushing touchdowns. He has the ability to hurt teams in multiple ways and is a nightmare for defensive coordinators.
Perhaps the most compelling example of his potential greatness came with DW4 in the 2020 season, the last in which he took the field for the Texans, where he recorded historic numbers. He was the NFL’s passing leader, throwing for 4,823 yards, had a barely believable 70.2 percent passing and a Madden-eque 112.4 QBR, while not having a No. 1 receiver, and in a team that went 4-12.
Could the capture of Orlovsky come to fruition? Absolutely. How many games will Watson play? Well, that’s anyone’s guess.
