Is that a strawman? I don't think so.

You're right about the silliness. It's a disease, I tell ya.
Eh - Regardless of how things go, by the time Coach O'Brien's tenure with the Texans comes to an end (hopefully many, many years from now) he will have been called lots of things he would prefer not to be called.
