Next year, Texans’ Deshaun Watson wants to prepare for Super Bowl rather than Pro Bowl

Don’t get Deshaun Watson wrong. He’s proud to be chosen to play quarterback in the Pro Bowl and is enjoying his time in Orlando, Fla.

It’s just that he’d rather be spending this week preparing to play in the Super Bowl.

‘That’s the ultimate goal, but I’m a long way from that’

And after a season in which he threw for more than 4,100 yards and had 26 touchdown passes, Watson believes he must improve on those numbers while he and his Houston Texans play for the Lombardi Trophy.

“Having more touchdowns, more yards, more wins and instead of coming down here for the Pro Bowl, getting ready for the Super Bowl.”

“I mean, just taking it to another level,” Watson told Cole Wright and Kirk Morrison on Pro Bowl Live from Orlando, Fla. “Having more touchdowns, more yards, more wins and instead of coming down here for the Pro Bowl, getting ready for the Super Bowl. That’s the ultimate goal, but I’m a long way from that.”

‘We don’t set our standards any lower than that’

To get there, Watson realizes he needs to show improvement each day and each week.

“Super Bowl, I feel like that’s the ultimate goal,” he said. “Get to the AFC Championship game and try to win that and try to get to the Super Bowl. That’s the biggest thing. We don’t set our standards any lower than that. We’ve got to set them high and try to strive for them.”
