It's the worst kept secret in all of football that Texans rookie QB Deshaun Watson will start Thursday night against the Bengals, and Neil Schwartz wants to know why coach Bill O'Brien has decided to slide Savage down to the backup spot.

"I watched all 31 plays, because that was the extent of what Tom saw in the first half, and I can't figure out why (O'Brien is) benching Tom," Schwartz said on PFT Live.

Savage was given just 13 attempts before O'Brien sat him down in the first half of the Texans' disastrous game against the Jaguars. He was sacked six times, but on five of those sacks he got less than three seconds to get rid of the ball.

Schwartz said he even sought other opinions after watching the tapes, but no one saw Savage commit any egregious mistakes.

"I asked two different NFL personnel/people/coaches from separate teams to evaluate different film to see if I was missing something," Schwartz said.

It's the same story for O'Brien and the Texans when it comes to their quarterbacks. Since O'Brien took over head coaching duties in 2014, the team has started Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Brock Osweiler at the QB spot. Now Savage and Watson can be added to the mix.

It remains to be seen if Watson can rally the Texans after the rough 29-7 loss, but Schwartz said it's disheartening that no one with the Texans stepped up to call out the shoddy offensive line, or the fact that multiple passes were dropped.

"Someone had to defend Tom and I don't feel like the coaching staff defended Tom's performance," Schwartz said.
