Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs
I don`t care about the Belichick tree. Just because others didn`t work out has nothing to do with O`Brien working out. It´s not like Belichick is poisoning them or something like that - they are all their own man, and there are several reasons why one or the other didn`t work out.
A new QB is always a gamble. I think a guy like Lovie Smith would`ve been a safer bet, but a guy like O`Brien is the more exciting pick. He has proven he can work in a pretty bad situation in Penn State, he has proven he can be a good college head coach. Does that mean anything now? Not much, but certainly a lot more than other Belichick guys failing so far.
So let`s see where this goes. I am cautiously optimistic (but I´m also always an optimist).
