I'm starting to warm up to the idea of Bill O'Brien and David Shaw over anyone else. I think a new fresh look and game plan is what these young guys will
Bring.

The "consecutive division titles" thing continues to grind my gears. It took a Manningless Colts team and a downside Titans team for him to do it. Here we are again, not even a year later and the Colts are on their way back up and the Texans are the worst in the league.

I'm sure Penn State and Stanford were thinking that too.

I'd like to see either one of them hired. Probably won't get either one but maybe we'll get lucky.

For starters you act like this is pee wee football. I don't care what teams are made of it is not easy to win a division title.

As for the colts "on the way up". I'm not impressed. One could argue the only reason they are going to win the AFC south is because the Texans are having a down year. Luck is a good QB, not great...yet. They're team is very inconsistent at best. If we were 80% of last years team I would say the division would be ours.

Unfortunately we are about 35% of last years team. If we do not take the division next year I think we will fully compete for it with us taking the crown in 2015.

I may be optimistic but I think crowning Indy as a clone of Peyton's Colts is absurd and no where close to that.

College coaches come and go for the opportunity to coach in the NFL if they decide to do so

Im sure its happened before but Head Coaches in the NFL don't often leave an organization that takes care of him

what? Sorry but this post made no sense to me .


College coaches coach in college only to get the opportunity to coach in the NFL or go away?

Has anyone other than Madden left a HC job for any reason other than being fired? ( I know Gruden was technically traded)

He's done a great job at Penn St.

The NCAA should have shut down that program.

What happened there was the definition of the NCAA's belove lack of insitutional control sentence,that they love to use before they lower the boom on the SMU/TCU/Arkansas Pine-Bluffs of the world.

Urges Students to Arrive early

Quote:
“This is a noon kickoff, and it is by far the biggest game for us so far this year. We’re playing a 5-0 Northwestern team. We feel like we’re doing some good things. We need all those students in the stands at noon for that kickoff. They [the players] feed off of that–The crowd noise, the student section. Whether it’s white out, this out, that out, I don’t know, I just need them in the stands at noon going nuts for this football team because we have to have a great home field advantage, and these guys really feed off that.” - Bill O'brien
Holds fans accountable, looks a little fiery, maybe he'll pull some passion out of some of our players again.

He looks more like a Mafia enforcer than a coach. That's probably what Houston needs at this point, anyway. A tough guy with a little fire to him, not the cool laid back type that Kubes tended to be.

I think he means college coaches constantly jump ship to coach in the pros. Not all college coaches who have the chance do, but most. Not in the pros though. If a pro coach has the solid backing of ownership then he's not likely to skip around jobs.

And there was Vermiel, right? Although he probably intended to stay retired that first time and maybe even the second time.

And then there was Lombardi. I never really understood what happened there. I was too young. But he quit the Packers and went to the Redskins (and then died.)

And THEN there was Jack Pardee. He was the coach of the Chicago Bears, built the team up and took them to the playoffs but lost to the Cowboys. Then... I don't know if he quit or if his contract expired, and he was coaching the Redskins the next year.

It's obviously rare, though.

I'm down with this guy big time. Shaw is going to be a harder get, but I think O'Brien would fit in perfect. Get it done Bobby Boy! Anyone who has seen his Real Sports segment can probably tell you how much character this dude has. He became a fan for life of mine after watching that. He's the real deal on and off the field.
