I like what I hear about this guy, but, I also think we should do our due dilligence. Bill Belichek's assistants have been horrible head coaches, and this guy could break the mold, but, I just want to make sure we are careful in hiring.

O'Brien might be the guy, but, I'd also like to take a hard look at the Seattle Offensive Coordinator, and a couple other people as well.
I don't think any (or at least, very many) of us are saying that the Texans shouldn't do their due diligence and take a look at as many candidates as possible. I think we're just saying that based on what we know (which is going to be less than what McNair and Smith know), Bill O'Brien wouldn't be a bad choice.

Granted, the Belichick coaching tree has not had a lot of success but... at least this guy has gone out and been fairly successful in a very trying situation. That's got to be a good sign.

But. Yeah. Don't just find a guy and stop looking.
