On Tuesday evening at 10:59 p.m. CT, almost an hour and 15 minutes after reports confirmed that the Texans were hiring New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio as general manager, Watson tweeted that, “some things never change” followed by an attempt at ellipses.
Maybe Watson could have been tweeting about the Georgia U.S. Senate runoffs between Republican incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler and Democratic challengers John Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. After all, Watson is from Georgia and still has family in the Peach State.
some things never change….

It is unlikely; it is more plausible that Watson was tweeting about the Caserio hire.
Quincy Avery, Watson’s personal quarterback skills coach, quote-tweeted Watson and provided an arrow hitting the target for an emoji.
Texans fans saw smoke surrounding Watson’s tweets, but couldn’t exactly spot the fire. Nonetheless, the hashtag #FireJackEasterby started trending on Twitter.
If Watson is insinuating anything about the Caserio hire, it is an inauspicious start to what was supposed to be a new dawn in Houston after the firing of Bill O’Brien.
