The Rush: Tyrod Taylor named Texans starting QB over Deshaun Watson

The Houston Texans named Tyrod Taylor as the starting quarterback over Deshaun Watson, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron got trolled hard by UCLA Football’s Twitter handle over the ‘sissy’ t-shirt comment, and the Las Vegas Raiders cut linebacker Tanner Muse on his birthday… and then wished him happy birthday on Twitter.

JARED QUAY: We've got more UCLA later on in the show, but first, NFL. In a move that shocks no one, Texas head coach David Culley announced that Tyrod Taylor will be starting quarterback over Deshaun Watson.

- Well, Tyrod Taylor will start for us at quarterback, for sure.

JARED QUAY: It's such an obvious decision, it almost didn't even need to be said. Watson has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault and misconduct, and even before that, Watson requested a trade from the Texans. So officially, Tyrod will suit up on Sunday in Houston's opener against Jacksonville. You've got to think, though, this move probably favors the Jaguars.

- This has totally changed my mind toward Jaguars.

JARED QUAY: If you didn't hear, LSU's head coach Ed Orgeron talked smack to a UCLA fan on Saturday.

- Hey, bring your ass [BLEEP]. Bring your ass [BLEEP] in your little sissy blue shirt.

JARED QUAY: Strong words, Ed. Obviously, LSU went out and whooped UCLA's ass, right?

- Wrong.

JARED QUAY: Nah. LSU lost to UCLA, 38-27, and just to rub salt on that wound, whoever runs UCLA's football Twitter handle changed their banner to this. Savage. Yo, maybe if you're going to use the word sissy, make sure your team gets the memo and actually wins the game, because Twitter handles never forget, and they never forgive. You be careful with them Twitter handles.

We're going to end the show hoping Raiders linebacker Tanner Muse had a very special happy birthday yesterday. Happy belated birthday, bro. I'm sure you're going to have a killer season. Wait a minute, what's that? Tanner got cut? On his birthday? Damn. Sorry, Tanner. That sucks. Raiders, you are cold for cutting that man on his birthday. Wait a minute, what?

The Raiders still wished him happy birthday on Twitter, even after they cut him? Man, that is just cold. Yo, whoever is running that Twitter handle, they need to stop, all right. Maybe they should get that UCLA Twitter guy, because someone can't leave the room. Dang, man. I hope you still had a good birthday, but it's not going to be as fun knowing you ain't on the team.
