Demaryius Thomas was traded from the Broncos to the Texans this week and gets to bask in winning against his old mates after Vance Joseph’s gameplan involved settling for a 51-yard field goal that Brandon McManus missed when closer yardage was certainly attainable (Denver had 2nd and 5 from Houston’s 32 with 30 seconds left and a timeout).
He had a doozy of a quote to NFL Media’s Mike Silver: “That’s what they do over there … I ain’t a part of that no more. We like to win over here.”
And with that Thomas said a lot with few words. Nevertheless, it warrants mentioning that the Texans under Bill O’Brien have had a number of similar late game passivity occurrences over the years, but that’s a problem for Later Demaryius Thomas. Right now Houston’s won six in a row and that’s the team Thomas is familiar with.
