When it comes to praise, there isn’t much praise a rookie quarterback can get that can surpass that of one of the best defensive units in the league and one of their top players.
Sherman spoke to the MMQB on Sunday night and discussed his long embrace with the rookie Texans quarterback after the two teams played earlier in the day.
“‘You played the best game any quarterback has ever played against us and we’ve played all the legends. I respect how you hung in there and kept battling and battling” Sherman said of what he told Watson.
Watson’s 4 touchdowns against Seattle brought his season total to 19 through his first 7 games breaking a record previously held by Kurt Warner, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
“My God, Houston’s so lucky” Sherman continued.
“By next year he’s going to be a top-five quarterback in this league, and that includes the two big dogs [New England’s Tom Brady and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers]. He makes you dig to the deepest part of your competitive juices to beat him”.
Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson came away impressed by Watson as well.
“He’s a special, special player, and I’m going to love watching him play in the next few years,” Wilson told The MMQB.com.
“He was so good today, so special. I told him on the field, ‘God is good. Keep putting the hard work in. It’ll keep showing.'”
