QB Brian Hoyer
(on being named the Texans starting quarterback) “Obviously, excited. It’s been a lot of hard work that goes into this. I think both Ryan (Mallett) and I both competed very hard. Obviously, a sense of excitement, a sense of accomplishment, I guess you would say, and realizing that it’s just the beginning. Me being named the starter today doesn’t meant that anything’s going to be given to me. I have to go out and earn it every day. It’s an honor and privilege to be able to do that. From here on out, I’ve got to go out and prove to my teammates, prove to everyone in this organization that I can be a winning starting quarterback for this team.”
WR DeAndre Hopkins
(on what he likes about QB Brian Hoyer) “He brings leadership to the table. He’s been in this position before as a starting QB. He knows what it’s like to have this pressure on him, if you say so. I think he brings a lot of aspects to this team and to this offense.”
