Good news as far as I'm concerned. Wish them both luck (far away from Houston).

Will BOOB be looking for a real OC or will he be calling his own plays?

Conflicting (to some extent) information from McClain:

Quote:
New Texans coach Bill O’Brien spent more than half a day meeting with assistants who worked under Gary Kubiak and ended up firing two coordinators and six positions coaches.

O’Brien, who has more meetings scheduled Monday morning with the rest of Kubiak’s assistants, is expected to keep assistant head coach/defensive line Bill Kollar.

I just didn't think it was going to happen (& technically, it hasn't). They both worked for the Patriots, but at different times. For all we know, they don't know each other.

One more Godsey-O'Brien tie: O'Brien was Georgia Tech's offensive coordinator when Godsey played QB there

Like Brian Ferentz, Godsey was on same @Patriots coaching staff under O'Brien when he was OC there (CONT)

As for offensive coordinator, keep an eye on @Patriots TE coach George Godsey (CONT)

Brian Ferentz, son of Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, was @Patriots assistant from 2009 to 2011. Started as offensive assistant, left as TE coach

I'm hearing @HoustonTexans already have strong candidate for new o-line coach that may be done deal: Brian Ferentz from University of Iowa

Not exactly liking that we're going with the "Patriots Way" considering how much I hate Boston Sports, so let's hope whatever this guy does ends up replicating the winning and not their loathsome, insufferable doucheosity.

That would give the Texans a very inexperienced offensive coaching staff (NFL).

Yep and this is worisome.

However If Ferentz is anywhere near as good as his dad is the OL should be in good hands.

New Englnds TE's were pretty good even without Hernandez. So there is hope.

All I got from this is that you hate them because of their history of winning.

Ferentz is one of the top three OL coaches in college football so hard to hate on that one.

I don't think anyone is hating on any of the potential coaches. The only thing that was brought up is minimal NFL experience. It doesn't mean its good or bad.

I actually hate all Boston sports teams and have hated them for a long, long time now. I'm a Sabres fan, my bro is a Dolphins fan, and my other brother is a Yankees fan. Been brought up to hate Boston sports with a passion. Only root for the Celtics when they play the Lakers. Preceded all Patriots success. But nice try, *******. And it's funny how I said I hope they bring the winning and not the Boston doucheosity and you STILL tried to say I hate them because they're winners.

Can't wait for the Patriots to not be good anymore so you can be blown away when I---gasp---still hate them with a vehement passion. As evidenced by my unbridled hatred for the Titans, Jaguars, Raiders, Mets, Phillies, Dodgers, Flyers, Leafs, and plenty of others, it IS possible to hate teams for other reasons than success. Not all hatred is based on winning, contrary to what you and people like you believe for some reason. Not everything is Kanye West-ified. Not sure where that narrative came from.

There's a chance that the Browns hire a coach that doesn't run a 3-4 like Mike Zimmer, leaving Horton without a job. Houston swooping in to grab him on the off chance that he doesn't get an HC position would be perfect.

If hatred was based on success, it would be superficial. I'm not a superficial person and there's reason behind everything I do and feel. If you only hate teams because they win, well, I guess that'd make you superficial now, wouldn't it? That'd be pretty pathetic to only hate teams that win.
