Texans won’t miss QB Ryan Mallett


On Tuesday, the Texans parted ways with quarterback Ryan Mallett.

It’s been a rough season for the Houston franchise, with Mallett’s issues documented on “Hard Knocks” for the world to see. This is simply a transaction cutting dead weight, and is not necessarily a reason for Texans’ fans to be overly optimistic.

Ryan Mallett has a disappointing 51.2 overall grade this season, with a 50.9 passing grade, both 42nd among 50 qualifying quarterbacks. Among QBs who have taken at least 25 percent of their team’s offensive snaps, he was dead last in completion rate (52.7 percent) and yards per attempt (5.3).

Brian Hoyer isn’t lighting the world on fire, either—his 68.3 overall rating is barely above league average, and his 69.8 QB accuracy percentage is near the bottom (Mallett had a 65.7 accuracy percentage, above only Andrew Luck).

Hoyer can be decent at times, currently ranked 22nd among quarterbacks, but it’s unlikely he’ll salvage the season for the Texans. Early indications have T.J. Yates signing as the new backup, but at this point, it really doesn’t matter. The franchise put itself in a rough situation by signing an unreliable QB with off-field issues to back up an at-best average NFL starter, something that will have ramifications far beyond 2016.

    Maybe the Patrioys can sign him, let him sit behind Brady and learn with Belichek and the trade him for a 2nd round pick this offseason.

    No?

      lol

      How did he last even a season with the disciplinarian Belichick?

        he knew his role there, he thinks he’s better than hoyer, never had a notion of arrogance behind brady

        • Riffle,Rod&Fly

          Yeah, good point. He’s been all butthurt over the backup role since the beginning of the season. There were questions about his character coming into and during the draft though. It wasn’t a typical Pats’ pick.

            right, just speculating here but it almost seems like they drafted him knowing they would flip him later, sort of like trading down in the draft. except they probably didn’t like the trades they were being offered or the players on the board in that class, so they invested in the future via mallet

          • Riffle,Rod&Fly

            That is really interesting! So they were looking to sell based on perceived value. We saw it with Hoyer and Cassel. It makes sense to me.

  • Yep

    Maybe they should of drafted Carr/Bridgewater instead of Clowney.

    BOB is holding out until he can draft his boy Hackenberg at Penn State next spring.

    • bobrulz

      I would be shocked if he’s around to see that draft.
