Last Monday’s game was not a good one for the Houston Texans. Not only did they lose 34-6 to the Pittsburg Steelers, but ended the game with multiple QB’s sustaining concussions.
T.J Yates started the game, replacing QB Tom Savage for his concussion injuries. And low and behold, during the game he gets a concussion too. Good thing Taylor Heinicke was there to replace him. But of course immediately after starting, Heinicke gets sacked on his only possession and taken off the field for – yep, a concussion.
Man, we knew football was dangerous, but it just feels like the Texan’s have a concussion curse or something.
After the embarrassing loss, Migos member Quavo says that the Texan’s should let him be the new quarterback. While this was probably a joke, Quavo actually used to play quarterback for his high school’s football team- and broke records in Gwinnett county doing it.
As you can see, in 2009 Quavo ( Quavious Marshall) broke the record for most passes completed in a game with 29. Interestingly, Texan’s backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke grew up in the same county as Quavo, and surpassed his record with 34 completed passes the following year.
Whether they ever faced off in high school, we don’t know.
Of course, Quavo went on to become a hip-hop superstar, while Heinicke continued playing football in college and eventually made it to the NFL.
But Quavo points out that Heinicke was barely better than him in high school, and alludes that he could perform better than him in 2018 if challenged.
After the post blew up, Taylor Heinicke struck back, saying that the two should have a competition when he’s back in Gwinette county. If he wins, he gets to be in their next music video.
We think this is a smart move on Heinicke’s part: he’s a backup quarterback for a team that hasn’t been doing so hot, and could use the fame.
So, what do you think? Could skinny Quavo really hold his own in the NFL? Or would he get ruthlessly knocked unconscious just like the Texan’s other Quarterbacks? One thing is for sure, we know the dude can still throw a football, and with laser-like accuracy. Here’s a 2017 video of Quavo throwing a football through a basketball hoop that looks to be quite far away.
Look at that shit! He shrugged it off like it was nothing too. Quavo has some serious skills.
Stay tuned for the football competition between Quavo and Taylor Heinicke. We think it might actually happen. When it does, who do you think will emerge victorious?
