Patrick Towles Impresses Houston Texans’ Staff

Last night, it was reported that former UK quarterback Patrick Towles would be given a rookie tryout with the Houston Texans. According to his tweet this afternoon, it must’ve gone well for the northern-Kentucky native.

Towles, aka PattyIce, spent his last year of eligibility playing for Boston College in the ACC. He led the Eagles to a 7-6 record, including a Quick Lane Bowl victory. On the year, Towles passed for 1730 yards, 12 touchdowns, and only 7 interceptions. This was a big improvement, as he only threw 9 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in his last season as a Wildcat.

Congrats, Pat! Good luck in Houston.

      Not really. Not when you are asked to do nothing. Throw for 135 yards a game and 12 TD’s in an entire season? You damn well better not turn the ball over often.

      Yes, “only” 7. It’s still not a great number, but compared to his 14 during his final season at UK, I see that as an improvement. BC’s play scheme didn’t have to rely heavily on the pass, but still, he protected the ball better, despite taking just as many sacks (25-27).

    Towles did not get drafted . Texans did draft Deshaun Watson. Now who impressed the Texans?

    In all fairness the kid had several offensive coordinators in the time he was here. He was handled wrong.
