So then if this staff is complete, sounds like O'Brien will end up as both HC and OC.

OK. So we've gone from Denver South to New England South. Theoretically it's a step in a better direction.

Bernhardt is OB's "No" man.

He's a QC guy who tells OB when he's wrong, basically.

So, in a sense, he's QC for the HC. Odd, but I like the concept.

And quality control?

I've seen that from several teams this offseason but never heard of it prior.

We need more quality in our turnovers. :)

QC tends to be guys working their way up. Like an intern or entry level position. Do a lot of grunt work, charting, statistics/tendencies, and help run scout team.

No OC, but we are researching the pigskin to a high degree of quality.

Geezus. I'm getting to old for this ####

lol! Yeah, me, too, man. I just have to get into that off-season groove thing.

I guess my thirst for football was not quenched with the unbelievable crappy 2013 season. It hit me the other night, in a really weird way that took me a few moments to digest..."the Seahawks are world champions. The...Seahawks..." It's the same way I felt after the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl. These were always dog teams, but now, they have trophies. Takes a little while to let it sink in, y'know?

Anyway, off topic and all that...quick, somebody get me some koolaide and say some great things about our new coaching staff! :texflag:

A lot of folks, especially in Houston and Oilers/Texans fans elsewhere with symbolically ring-free fingers, thought of that very thing.

"Seattle? Hell, that makes both them AND Tampa Bay."

I about lost it when Carolina and Jacksonville damned near had a SB party of their own against each other the second year they played. Because of that the Texans had a tougher row to hoe (<---wait, reverse that).

Alright, I'm done too. Sorry for the hijack, folks. Carry on.





















...but DAMN IT. HOUSTON IS DUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :overreact:
