The Houston Texans Just Named Brian Hoyer Their Starting Quarterback

Share on Nextdoor
Welp. The NFL Network and ESPN have made it official: Brian Hoyer will be the Houston Texans' starting quarterback to kick off the 2015 campaign.

The 29-year-old Cleveland native and St. Ignatius alum was the Browns' QB for portions of 2013 in 2014.

Hoyer beat out Houston's Ryan Mallett for the job in a starting QB battle that rivaled only Cleveland in its rage/depression-inducement.

"I think at this point there's definitely things that need to be corrected and get fixed," Hoyer said in a post-game press conference Saturday. "But I don't feel poorly about where I'm at. I don't know if I'd say I feel great. I think we have a long way to go as an entire offensive unit, myself included." 

How about that for confidence, Houston?
