So then if this staff is complete, sounds like O'Brien will end up as both HC and OC.

OK. So we've gone from Denver South to New England South. Theoretically it's a step in a better direction.

Bernhardt is OB's "No" man.

He's a QC guy who tells OB when he's wrong, basically.

So, in a sense, he's QC for the HC. Odd, but I like the concept.

QC tends to be guys working their way up. Like an intern or entry level position. Do a lot of grunt work, charting, statistics/tendencies, and help run scout team.

lol! Yeah, me, too, man. I just have to get into that off-season groove thing.

I guess my thirst for football was not quenched with the unbelievable crappy 2013 season. It hit me the other night, in a really weird way that took me a few moments to digest..."the Seahawks are world champions. The...Seahawks..." It's the same way I felt after the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl. These were always dog teams, but now, they have trophies. Takes a little while to let it sink in, y'know?

Anyway, off topic and all that...quick, somebody get me some koolaide and say some great things about our new coaching staff!

Default Re: Texans Announce Coaching staff

A lot of folks, especially in Houston and Oilers/Texans fans elsewhere with symbolically ring-free fingers, thought of that very thing.

"Seattle? Hell, that makes both them AND Tampa Bay."

I about lost it when Carolina and Jacksonville damned near had a SB party of their own against each other the second year they played. Because of that the Texans had a tougher row to hoe (<---wait, reverse that).

Alright, I'm done too. Sorry for the hijack, folks. Carry on.





















...but DAMN IT. HOUSTON IS DUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
