John Harbaugh guided the Ravens to an 11-5 record his rookie season (2008), earning a wild card berth. But after upset victories over the Dolphins & Titans, the Ravens fell to the Steelers in the AFCCG. (An interesting side note is that John Harbaugh only got the Ravens job after Jason Garrett turned down the offer.)

So while these are excellent examples of what could happen to the 2014 Texans, the only rookie head coach I know who went to the Super Bowl and also won it was George Siefert in 1989, but he took over the reigning 1988 champion 49ers from Bill Walsh, and I'm sorry, but Bill O'Brien is no George Siefert, Ryan Fitzpatrick is no Joe Montana, and the 2014 Texans are not 1989 SF 49ers.
