The former Patriot and current Texans backup posted as much on Twitter shortly after Houston's 31-21 loss to the Eagles, saying: "I'm staying focused for when the time comes ... seize the opportunity #justwaiting."
On Monday, Mallett sent out another tweet: "Don't misinterpret my last tweet. I'm not calling to be the starter. Frustrations of losing. I play my role. I am a team player first. Always."
With the bye week coming up, it looks like it could be now or never for the 2014 season, at least. Was that tweet a sign of things to come?
