Deshaun Watson‘s mother spent years encouraging him to chase his dreams.Now that Watson has achieved one of his biggest goals of reaching the NFL Benardrick McKinney Jersey , the Houston Texans quarterback is giving back to her by renovating the home he grew up in.“She is my rock, my hero,” Watson said. “She always was there giving 100 percent each and every day to try to be the best she can be to help her kids be successful.”It’s been well-documented that the Watson family received a home from Habitat For Humanity when Deshaun was 11 years old in Gainesville, Georgia. His mother still lives in that house, but now that he’s receiving NFL paychecks he decided it was time to spruce it up.His mother is a survivor of throat cancer and watching her fight through the disease made him even more determined to do something special for her.“She deserves it,” Deshaun said. “It’s been a solid home for us for … over 12 years now. (But) living room, kitchen and dining area, those areas need a little touch up. Everything she went through, this is really the smallest thing I can do for her.”Watson chronicled the spiffy makeover of his mother’s living room, dining room and kitchen on an online show called “My Houzz,” which can be seen here , and used the renovation website houzz.com to plan and carry out the project.Watson worked with a contracting team he found on the website, but he selected everything for the renovation. He picked the perfect lights, the color scheme, artwork for the wall, the right bar stools and kitchen cabinet, among dozens of other additions. Watson was thrilled to learn he could add a fireplace Bradley Roby Jersey , something his mother had long wanted.He was pleased when told there’d be no need to build a chimney because it was an electric fireplace that starts with the flip of a switch.The 23-year-old Clemson graduate got a look at the completed project before unveiling it to his mother, and he loved how everything turned out. When his mother arrived, he greeted her outside and held her hand as she closed her eyes before he led her into the fabulous upgraded space. When she opened her eyes and gazed around the room, a huge smile spread across her face. Her son’s smile was just as broad.He was right about the fireplace, too. It was one of the first things Deann commented on.“I love my fireplace,” she said. “I love it.”She walked around her renovated home with wide eyes, taking in all the beautiful changes. She was also excited to see that her microwave, which formerly took up counter space, was now built into one of the cabinets.“I never thought it would be like this,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”Watson enjoyed the challenge of leading this project, but the best moment came when he saw the joy the gift brought his mom.“I could just see it in her eyes,” Watson said. “She was very moved. Everything that she saw, she loved it. Being a son and being able to take care of your momma and help her out felt good.” It’s pretty easy to draw parallels between the modern NFL and the Roman gladiatorial games. The powers that be want to keep the masses distracted from all the unscrupulous nonsense they pull each and every day by offering up a spectacle of human prowess, fraught with danger and drama. Sadly, it works just as well in the 21st century as it did in the first century to distract the population from what’s really going on in the world. Houston, we have a problem. The NFL has managed to get Uncle Sam to let them fill that need; the league (or at least one team) is even rewarded each year with a nice pat on the head and a “well done” visit to the White House after winning the Super Bowl. From the recently corrected non-profit status granted to the NFL to anti-trust laws that boggle the mind, it’s clear the powers that be desperately want to stack the deck in favor of the NFL. Where the train jumps the proverbial tracks is when the spectacle loses its entertainment value. Sure Tashaun Gipson Jersey , you’ll always have the long-suffering fan bases willing to hang in there “just one more year” in the hopes of finally being able to remove the bag from their collective heads long enough to win a Super Bowl. But in the politically charged landscape of modern America, where the players and owners are under more scrutiny than ever before, the slightest misstep can turn into a public relations fiasco that costs teams millions of dollars. Doing something that evokes passion, whether positive or negative, can always turn out well for any sports franchise. When you continually put a subpar product on the field, however, even winning doesn’t always remove the stigma of apathy. Watching Bill O’Brien take a highly talented roster filled with the likes of Deshaun Watson, Deandre Hopkins, Will Fuller V, J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney “AWOL” Mercilus and Tyrann Mathieu to continually produce an episode of “The 53 Stooges” does just that. But, wait, NFL ratings are up!Sure, the NFL seems to have managed to stop trying to shoot the goose that lays the golden eggs – for now – but this is Texas. We might love to root for the underdog, but eventually, we have to come alongside that dog and let him know his time his come to ride off into the sunset or be taken out back and put down. Will Bill O’Brien get Deshaun Watson injured? That’s a very valid question. It’s not hard to go back and watch the tape to see Mike Shanahan had a lot to do with Robert Griffin III’s career-shortening injury. It’s easy to say no Texans fan wants to see that happen here. At the rate Watson is getting hit Zach Fulton Jersey , it’s a simple numbers game – unless Watson is channeling his inner Brett Favre, he’s going to land on Injured Reserve before the season is over. Would you throw away $166 million? From a purely business point of view, Texans owner Bob McNair is doing just that this season by allowing this “definition of insanity” offensive game-planning to continue. We’ve learned beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bill O’Brien is not the quarterback-whispering #NextGen offensive guru/prodigy he was sold to us as five years ago. Why continue to let him mismanage the game plan, the team’s preparation, play calling, clock management, and other aspects he obviously can’t do well? It seems the Texans can’t even get the spectacle of the Roman games right. J.J. Watt is a modern Maximus Decimus Meridius.The lead character of the movie Gladiator was a fictitious mish-mash of actual and imagined people, but J.J. Watt is a real life superhero. Maximus had his own Romeo Crennel to save him from the evil emperor, but he was put to death. Unfortunately, Maximus and his team die at the end of the movie too鈥?The question remains: Are you not entertained? The Houston Texans have managed to beat the teams they should beat the last three weeks, but after the Dallas Cowboys utterly destroyed the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, chances are the Jags’ defensive line is drooling at the opportunity to take on the Houston Texans offensive line this week. Watching Deshaun Watson run for his life every time he touches the ball could only be described as entertaining for a masochist who has some deranged desire to see the best quarterback in franchise history maimed for life. Is it a car crash we can’t stop watching?Or just a bar ditch waiting for us to drive into it? Maybe that’s where the spectacle lies. Maybe it’s like watching Old Yeller, knowing the poor dog is going to be put down and we’re just waiting for gunshot. Or maybe the Houston Texans finally pull the plug on the Bill O’Brien experiment and bring in a head coach who actually is what O’Brien was hyped to be. In the meantime, the desire to watch erodes further each week. Are you happy with the 3-3 record? Have on your Pollyanna glasses? Can you spot the upside here?
