Not bashing here but I think it's a legitimate question. Other opinions?

The question concerning not having players with a high football IQ is interesting because I had not really considered this a huge hole in the Texans game, but you may have something there. I do not know if you could coach-up some players to where they need to be? Retooling through the draft and FAs to improve in this area would take probably 3 years in my small mind.

A hardas* like the 'Chin' will be great for this organization. Good character is great, but no testicles and drive to dominate cannot be lost. Good enough is not good enough this time around. Schiano was an as*hat that alienated players by his decisions to screw players. I know there were at least two instances in Tampa where they placed players on the non-football injury list to save money. These decisions only eliminate FAs from wanting to come to your organization and breed distrust. Decisions like those are why Tampa jettisoned coach and GM. I do not think a disciplinarian who has the respect of players needs to worry too much about today's NFL. Who wants more little Nancy's on this team?

I like the O'Brien hire. But only because I hope he'll bring innovation & motivation. However, I am concerned McNair brought O'Brien in because there have been several college coaches who've been exceptionally successful early in their coaching career.

I think that would have been a great idea after 2010, when we were much younger, like a college team.

OB's offense is different, but it's not rocket science. Kubiak's offensive philosophy was criticized for being too "vanilla", but that had nothing to do with player's intelligence.

The man has a temper and needs to vent at times. Belichick has a temper and quietly cuts you. Many women I've dated got "overwhelmed" and needed to talk themselves down. Ditka, Jimmy Johnson had tempers. Bill Walsh, Tom Landry less so.

It's his process. Not right or wrong. People are different.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

People can sit here and complain about the hiring of BOB all they want, but we went 2-14 this season and both our head coaches just stood there looking dumb founded while everything around them was crashing down.

SO.......atleast if we still suck now we will have a coach who will shove his foot so far up their million dollar asses they wont be able to sit down on the sofas at their mansion. Atleast we will have that if nothing else !

When I say that Houston has seemed to be short players at times with intelligence I guess what I'm trying to get across is that time and time again we've seen Texans players do just absolutely stupid stuff and put the team in a bad place. Things like extending opponents drives after getting a stop or killing their own drives with penalties for example. Failing to run the route correctly at times. Just "mistakes". Now I guess some of this is discipline but sometimes it's happened so often that I've wondered if the fool (of that particular moment) even understands what his job is on that play. Guys who can't keep it together and aren't mature enough to play smart instead of retaliating. That kind of thing.

When I watch bad teams play I see this kind of thing a lot. I'm sure many of you do too. When I saw the Texans play, even during the last two seasons when we were winning I still saw lots of this crap.

I just wonder if that's going to improve under O'Brien be it through greater discipline, better teaching, or pursuing a better grade of player with a higher IQ.

I was happy with Dom but Kubiak couldn't even put a sentence together. I'm sorry but I would never hire a guy who sounded like him to a leadership role.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

Nice article from Jeffri Chadiha at ESPN on O'Brien's hiring:

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...houston-texans

"The Houston Texans are taking a risk in hiring Penn State's Bill O'Brien as their new head coach. He's a man whose head-coaching experience comes down to two seasons at Penn State. He was an assistant in New England for four years before that, meaning he's following in a long line of failed coaches who've worked for New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. But O'Brien also is something else: The right man to make people forget all the disasters that have come out of New England before him."

Everyone I know who's heard Kubiak speak in a public speaking sort of situation (for example, Stephanie Stradley at the various Texans' luncheons) has said that Kubiak is very charismatic and well-spoken.

It'll be interesting to see what direction O'Brien goes at QB.

To me the most impressive QBs in the bowl games so far have been Bortles and Hundley, not Bridgewater and Manziel.

A related note: I wonder if Snyder will still be so hot to trot for Briles after the thumping Baylor is taking tonight. UCF, a 17-point underdog, is leading by 17.

Reads bottom-to-top...

Jayson Braddock ‏@JaysonBraddock
Quote:
Charlie Taaffe is now George O'Leary's OC at UCF. Both can give info on Bortles & will be trusted. All can run multiple offenses. #Texans

At Maryland, Charlie Taaffe used #Lions QB Shaun Hill to run the option under Friedgen while O'Brien was RB coach. #Texans

I still remember the battles of Joey Hamilton vs Woody Dantzler. Friedgen was Hamilton's OC at Ga Tech, then brought O'Brien to Maryland.

O'Brien was also employed by Ralph Friedgen, who ran a lot of option football & QB play depended on timing. Ralph had Joey Hamilton at Tech

O'Brien did coach Tom Brady at NE & Christian Hackenberg was his star recruit. Prototypical pocket passers, ideal NFL size, but... #Texans

Was it their running ability that impressed you the most?

Bridgewater: 35/45, 447 yards, 3 TD's, 0 INTS

Manziel: 30/38, 382 yards, 4 TD's, 0 INTS

Bortles: 20/31, 301 yards, 3 TD's, 2 INTS

Hundley: 16/27, 226, 2 TD, 0 INTS

Rushing: Hundley had 10 carries for 161 yards, 2 TDs. Bortles had 8 carries for 93 yards, 1 TD. Manziel had 11 carries for 73 yards, 1 TD. Bridgewater had 6 carries for 24 yards, 1 TD.

You're saying that, I didn't.

They did fine. They might be good NFL QBs, maybe even great.

But I'm looking at more than stats. Bortles and Hundley just strike me as less risky and more the NFL "type."

Besides Hundley's running ability he still didn't look all that great to me. His accuracy and reads need A TON of work. Bortles wasn't very accurate delivering the ball down the field. Those are traits that NFL QBs must possess.

Other than the rethreads, who has more HC experience?

Did you see the TD pass he threw down the right sideline (in the fourth quarter)? It was perfect. And it came right when the announcers were talking about his NFL potential.
