He has the stones of a leader and holds people accountable. He is the anti Kubiak in that regard. I'm super excited for this HC assuming he gets the gig.
What O'Brien did at Penn State... keeping nearly every single player after the monumental penalties and disgrace brought down on that major college program... and succeeding in his first year. 2012 Paul "Bear" Bryant College Coach of the Year
award winner. Amazing. Lemons into lemonade.
And anyone who thinks O'Brien carried Brady's clipboard while calling plays for 3 years is misinformed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33V0hSri6BM
What we've seen from O'Brien is exactly what fans yearned for -- an offense that game-plans for the opponent and makes adjustments on the fly. And a strong willed leader who believes in accountability: his own and his players.
New England was winning with average RBs, one short slot WR, and maybe one true WR. Get ready for some big TE mismatches.
