HOUSTON (AP) — New Houston coach Lovie Smith wasn’t upset with Davis Mills when the second-year quarterback recently told a reporter that the Texans were going to “shock the world” this season. Smith, a veteran of more than 20 NFL seasons, understood the point Mills was trying to make.
“All he’s really saying is guys, we’ve been working hard, we think we’re a pretty good football team,” Smith said.
“And if we do well, you’re not picking us to win much. I’d say no one here is. So, it’s going to probably be a shock if that happens.”
