Wednesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to attorney Tony Buzbee and at least 10 of Deshaun Watson's accusers attending his debut game with the Browns, back in Houston against the Texans.
Jonas Knox: "The entire situation is weird. A) Why make him come back for this game? Of all the number of games you could have popped him for, why this one? You could have just done what a lot of people felt like you were going to do and suspended him the entire season or push it back a week and that way you don't have to deal with any of this stuff that's happening. That could have been avoided. Deshaun Watson's behavior, all that could have been avoided. The fact that he's even still playing, that could have been avoided. The fact that the Browns traded for him and gave him all that money, that could have been avoided. Just from start to finish, this entire thing has been a cluster-F."
LaVar Arrington: "This to me makes Deshaun Watson, and I never thought I would say this, it makes him a sympathetic figure... He's not even going to see them, so what does it matter to tell the public you're going to sit in a suite to watch the game?"
Brady Quinn: "We don't have the perspective of how they feel, the position that they're in. Maybe they feel like this is them showing their strength, showing their power of, 'Hey, something happened and I'm not gonna hide. I want to be out there to say to any other woman who's been, whether it was sexually abused, whatever they're going through, that you could stand strong and you could still be present for something to face that person.' And maybe to some degree, that's what it is. They feel like it's important to be in the public's eye so it's not forgotten and the subject of what we're talking about is not forgotten."
