Super Bowl-winning head coach Dick Vermeil wasn’t having any of it. He told TMZ体育 on Wednesday that Watson was being a baby.
“I think they change his diapers, 好?” Vermeil said of what the Texans should do moving forward. “Nowhere in his contract does it say that he’s involved in making the decisions of who coaches or who leads the organization.”
他加了: “He’s a great NFL football player and always has been a great kid, but I think he just shuts his mouth and becomes a better football player and lead the football team and let the leaders of the organization lead him.”
