Default Bill O'Brien "type" players on our roster

Let's start thinking about who is a BO'B type player. First and foremost, I think JJ Watt will absolutely love playing for this guy. I really think hiring BO'B is going to help us re-sign JJ. AJ will love having an intense, offensive mind that takes advantage of matchups to maximiize the remainder of his career. Poor guy suffered under milquetoast coaches in Capers and Kubiak and now finally gets a winner.

Guys that don't fit, Schaub obviously, Wade Smith, Newton and OD. See you later McCain on D. Who else makes the grade with BO'B?

I see him keeping Foster

Heres my deal, if he is anything like Bill B than our team will be getting smaller, but faster. I dont see a TE on our roster who fits his style. I do expect we will become a pass first tem though, which i think will help pro long Fosters career.

I'm sure Griffin is a fit- though he may not be someone to feature.

It will be interesting to see what his take on Matt Schaub is. I am sure the organization will move on from Schaub as the "starter", but I think it is at least possible (particularly if the plan is to draft a QB in round one) O'Brien will want Schaub to be the veteran backup/mentor- a role that he would like excel in.
O'Brien's assessment of Schaub will be one of the more interesting things to watch this off-season, I think.

I hope his fire helps with our Corners and he can find someone to fix their technique issues. I'd hate to think JJo is done this soon. Hopefully he'll bring in a DC to match the passion for the game that he has.

Our 3 core Lineman should all respond to him well. Arian will if healthy, AJ, Cushing, and he will probably love Braman and Reed. Hopefully he loves Reed as an inside backer though.

Yo seem to have named players where the consensus is that they've underperformed rather than given any insight into which players are prototypical at their position for what Bill O'Brien is likely to want to do scheme wise.

I think in New England you implement the master plan that the hood lays out for you, and I'm unsure whether his time at PSU can be seen a fair reflection of his ideal world tendencies because the programme was hamstrung by their sanctions to the point where the recruiting must have been more about taking who they could get rather than allowing him to be picky about taking guys to fit his scheme.

I think that will smooth the transition, the dude is obviously good at playing to the strengths of what he has to work with, and I'm pretty sure McNair will have favoured someone who doesn't expect to rip the roster apart and start again.


I think we'll see a scheme built around what we have on the roster, I think he may well feel comfortable to axe a few vets taking big pay checks in order to off us some cap room.

Whew Schaub is way to expensive to keep on the roster as a back up. I dont see that happening !

will be interesting what he does with the players that are underperfoming: wade smith, OD (more injury and cap related), Jjo, Derek Newton, Sharpton for example.

Also players like Keo who even though are not that good are improving steadily game by game year by year.

Others to look out for are Tim Jamison and Crick.

He is going to probably like the guys who show intensity.

We have a few of those, but need more.
