Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins thinks Houston’s ceiling is the Super Bowl
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is ready to resume his status as the best player at his position in the 2019 NFL season. It appears his expectations for Houston are just as high.
According to Cam Wolf of GQ, Hopkins feels the Texans are poised for a Super Bowl.
“I think the Super Bowl for us, that’s the ceiling now. We got the pieces in the puzzles. We got one of the best defenses, with J.J. Watt. One of the best quarterbacks, Deshaun. Got a good running back, Lamar Miller. We got everything now. Super Bowl—I think that’s what everybody should say, though. Only way to play football.”
It is safe to say that expectations are as high as ever for Houston. Fortunately, there is good reason for Hopkins to be optimistic given all the talent on their roster. The time has come for them to finally put things together.
Of course, Houston has undergone some significant changes heading into the season opener. They managed to add some serious talent to their offense after acquiring left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills in a package centered around two of their future first-round picks.
However, they also lost some star power after trading edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks. Furthermore, the loss of running back Lamar Miller for the season with a torn ACL deals quite a blow to the offense. Fortunately, they can take solace in Hopkins’ ability to pick up the slack in the passing game.
