CJ Stroud is at the center of everything good at the Houston Texans. The young field general did extremely well during his rookie campaign which ended in a Pro Bowl nod.
While the number of accolades he’s received is incredible, some fans might be worried that his incredible debut season may affect his mental approach moving forward.
However, fans will be happy to know that their QB is actually hungry for more. It also doesn’t take a lot to get him going.
Houston Texans QB CJ Stroud felt disrespected by Jacksonville Jaguars
The Houston Texans star was invited to a podcast where he talked about his incredible rookie season and what drives him to perform.
It was during this conversation that he revealed that Jacksonville Jaguar, a divisional opponent, treated him like he wasn’t going to provide much impact on his first year in the NFL.
As reported by Texans Daily’s Matt Galatzan, it was all he needed to show out against his divisional rivals:
“I had so much respect for Jacksonville,” Stroud said during his appearance on the Pivot Podcast. “I they kinda came in like, ‘Oh, this a rookie quarterback.’ That was the last time that happened. We played the Steelers the week after. They didn’t treat me like a rookie quarterback. The rest of the season I wasn’t treated like a rookie quarterback. They would just blitz me, blitz me, blitz me. I would pick it apart.”
