Ravens’ Marlon Humphrey destroys Texans for David Culley firing amid Deshaun Watson issues
The Houston Texans made headlines when they decided to fire David Culley after just one season as their head coach. While the 4-13 Texans certainly didn’t wow anyone under Culley, they were also playing without star quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has been embroiled in a legal saga since the offseason. The move to fire Culley certainly didn’t go unnoticed around the league. Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl corner Marlon Humphrey, who was with Culley while the veteran coach was in Baltimore, roasted the Texans on Twitter for firing their head coach amid the issues with Watson.
Getting fired after one year without the franchise QB playing…

Ravens corner Marlon Humphrey didn’t hold back with his criticism of the Texans for their firing of David Culley. When looking at the situation from Humphrey’s perspective, it does seem unfair that Culley was fired after just one year, especially with Deshaun Watson not taking a single snap on the field.
Watson led the Texans to 21 wins in two full seasons as a starter in 2019 and 2020, so his absence on the field would certainly hurt a rookie head coach like Culley’s chances of putting together a winning team, as pointed out by the Ravens defender.
Not to mention the fact that Watson’s never-ending legal issues created a media frenzy for Culley and the Texans to deal with nearly every week. It’s a miracle the Texans even won four games.
Ravens corner Marlon Humphrey likely isn’t the only one who thinks it’s unfair that David Culley was fired by the Texans after just one season without franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson on the field.
