Maybe he'll be our Drew Brees & maybe we'll make the right decision & keep him. But it's a longshot from here on out.

He took the Cardinals to the Super Bowl & that was one of the best Super Bowls I had seen in a long time & I think the Cardinals were a poorly ran organization before Wisenhunt got there so I'm not holding their lack of talent against him.

That says more about the competition than it does his coaching ability.

They were 9-7 for a reason.

IIRC, he was the mastermind behind the New England 2-TE offense with Gronk and Hernandez a few years ago. Ran a pro-style offense at Penn State but didn't have a problem spreading it out. Loves to utilize multiple TE sets.

New England Patriots
Quote:
He became the quarterbacks coach and offensive play-caller following the 2008 season after the departure of quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in February 2011.

The Patriots gave the Jacksonville Jaguars permission to interview O'Brien for their head coaching vacancy during the Patriots' playoff bye week; O'Brien was scheduled for an interview, but never actually interviewed for the job. Instead, O'Brien interviewed with Penn State staff on January 5, 2012, was offered the head coach position, and signed a four-year contract to become the Nittany Lions' coach. O'Brien continued as New England's offensive coordinator through Super Bowl XLVI.

I'm just glad BoB spent the $$$$ for a quality hire.
I also wanted Vince Lombardi or George Halas. Turns out they are not available. Most proven NFL HCs are either dead, retired, current coaching an NFL team, or proven losers.

I like the idea of O'Brien better than the usual retread (Lovie Smith, Crennel, Jason Garrett - oops got a couple of days ahead of the curve there). Years ago I would have liked Cowher but he's been away too long.

Don't worry. If the Texans hire O'Brien someday they will lose a game, or fail to get a first down, or some such failure and you will blame it all on BoB being too cheap.

Well then that settles it, because no one has ever told a fib about such a thing, especially a football coach.

Until the contract is signed and the Brink's trucks have delivered the money from Bob to BOB, there is a tiny chance he could wind up staying so of course he would tell a recruit that he is staying.

Well let's hope one of our tight ends doesn't end up being a murderer.

I wonder if this means Daniels won't be cut. I'm comfortable with Daniels and Graham as dual tight ends. Hopefully he knows how to use Foster and Andre too. Hopefully he's play action-heavy. When it's working right, there's not an offense I'd rather have.

Well, to be fair, going by your statement you'd probably be just as skeptical of any other Texans hire, because you're judging the history of the organization, and history of other Patriots coordinators, and not the candidate himself.

Sooner or later one of them is going to pan out. Lets just hope O'Brien is the one that does.

Default Re: Texans interested in Bill O'Brien

I'm wait-and-see on Bill O.

But I think he came across as pretty classless when interviewed on the field after the Ticket City Bowl in 2012.

His team was throttled by Keenum and UH, yet he didn't mention them, let alone congratulate them. All he talked about was how his team fought through the Sandusky scandal to show up. And oh, by the way, UH lost its coach (Sumlin) just a couple of weeks earlier. So they didn't have it so easy, either.

But if O'Brien has the personality of Belichick, it won't matter as long as he can coach. And in fairness, he came across well in the HBO Real Sports feature this year on him, his wife and their severely disabled son:
