Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

The letterman jacket thing was way overblown, I think. When the news first came out, EVERYBODY loved it! Tons of tweets from all over about how awesome it was. Besides, I'm sure it was designed as a team building thing, not jackassery (but who knows). And if they didn't get blown out by NE, it wouldn't have been an issue; people probably would have said it helped pull the team together. In the end, I don't think it mattered either way.

O'Brien is just trying to imprint some of his own ideas and principles on the facility. Change is clearly needed, and when your surroundings tell you that things have changed, it might be easier for you as a player to embrace it. Plus, he's doing it 4 months before the OTA's, it's not going to be a big deal by the time camp rolls around.

I don't think he was treating anyone like they are adolescents other than the organization as a whole. He was letting everyone know, especially the front office staff, that there is no "I" in Team

The average age is nowhere close to 30. These guys in large part are very talented adolescents. This kind of stuff is not for players like AJ and JJ. It's for the 51 cats around them that need to be herded. A lot of them are maturely spending their time considering what speaker system and rims to have put on the Bentley they just spent their annual salary on.

Man, the tendency we, fans, have to overanalyze and nit-pick everything is amazing.

Edit: All that while we have almost no reliable information.

I definitely have a more favorable opinion of the maturity level of the current roster than you do. And besides, maturity speaks to attitude which translates to effort on the field, and frankly I didn't find the effort on the field to be at all deficient in 2013 for most games from most players. No I think the teams
problems are found elsewhere.

The style doesn't matter, it's the individual. To me this sounds like someone wanting to complain about lack of accountability in the Kubiak regime, and then when accountability is perceived as being inserted, it becomes treating players like their adolescents.

O'Brien's either going to be a successful NFL HC, or he's not, but in the end - it won't be his style that determines that (because somewhere in other NFL cities there are other HC's that have both failed and succeeded with almost the exact same style).
