Bears head coach Matt Nagy on Texans QB Deshaun Watson: "Any time he's able to use his legs as a weapon, and a threat, but on top of that, still be able to throw it, you see it. I've understood that from the time he's been in this League, that he's a playmaker. He makes plays with his arm and his legs, and that's hard to stop. A lot of respect for him. He's hard to stop, as coach said the other day, we've got to know where he is at all times.
Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano on Watson: "What a talent. A top two, three player in this League as far as I'm concerned. Could arguably say maybe he's the best. But I don't know. He is so talented. He can beat you with his arm. He can beat you with his legs. They run a great scheme. It's perfect for him. More RPO's than anybody in the League right now. The read zone stuff. They move him around. Right when you think you've got him dead to rights in the pocket and you're hanging on him and you think you've got him sacked, you don't. He's big, he's strong and he's athletic. He's very, very dangerous. Unfortunately, we don't get to play with 13 players. We'd love to, this week. That would be nice to always have somebody just assigned to him. Or 2 guys, besides the other 11.
Nagy on Texans DE J.J. Watt: "The one thing that I just keep seeing, and I've been against J.J. several times now when I was in Kansas City, he is just somebody that literally every play you have to know where he is. He's so dang long, and he's just so strong, that he can penetrate the pocket. He's all over the place. He doesn't just play one side. He moves around everywhere. He's a game-changer. He's goinig to split double-teams. He tips more passes than most defensive linemen in this League, so you've got to know where that is. I just think that he's playing at a high level right now."
Bears offensive coordinator Bill Lazor on Watt: "He's a dominant player. It's hard to block him 1-on-1. Both against the run and pass, he'll make plays. One of the things that's different now than at times in the past when I coached against him, is that he'll move around to a lot of different spots now. Whereas, there were some times where you had a little easier time finding where, or predicting where he would be. So that's also a challenge. He can wreck a run play or a pass play. That's just a fact. He's been doing that a long time.
Bears offensive lineman Charles Leno, Jr on Watt: "Effort. Man, that guy brings it every single play. You know what you're going to get out of 99. He's going to bring it, no matter what the situation. I still think he can bat down balls and get picks, because I've seen him on tape.
