I absolutely hope and believe that O'Brien can be the first to start to change it, but there's no denying that everything about Belichick's coaching tree sucks right now.

Notre Dame and Penn St after the scandal are two different ends of the spectrum

OB VIDEO Day 2

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...9-c402470eabed
Quote:
"Every day there's probably three meetings per day," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "And then, in between the meetings, there's either a walk-through or a practice. So they have to apply the new things that they've learned to the next stage."

"We test them on many things," O'Brien said. "We test them obviously on X's and O's according to their position and their unit. We test them on their knowledge of their teammates. We test them on knowledge of the organization. We test them all the time."

"I think it's important in a three-day camp like this to continually work their mind," O'Brien said. "Not just stand in front of them and talk to them and show them film. Let them talk a little bit. 'What do you know? What have you studied?'"


(on if he sees a little bit of himself in quarterbacks coach George Godsey because he coached him at Georgia Tech) “No. Everybody’s different. I appreciate you saying that. I had a great experience coaching him. He’ll go down in Georgia Tech history as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play there. He’s in the hall of fame there and it was fun to coach him because he was a really smart guy and then when he got into coaching, we obviously kept in touch and formed even more of a friendship. Then we were able to get him up to New England.

I told Bill (Belichick) about him and Bill interviewed him and they had a good talk and we hired him there. He was there in 2011 and then I went to Penn State and he stayed there and coached the tight ends and learned a lot about what they did there in New England while I wasn’t there. He’s his own coach. He does things his own way. He’s got his own style. He believes in the philosophy of what we have here. We’re trying to have a smart team. We’re trying to have a fundamentally-sound team. He’s doing a good job out there.”

(on George Godsey knowing what he wants out of him) “I think it’s important as a leader, as a head football coach, that everybody knows what you want. But I’m a firm believer in you hire these guys to coach, to let them coach. Like I said before, we have a strong staff of coaches. He’s one of them. We let these guys go out there and coach. They each have their own style, their own way of communicating. So far, it looks like it’s going pretty well.”


(on if you can tell how quickly a rookie will catch on to the system) “Definitely. I think you can watch how a guy listens in the meeting and then how he applies it on the field and how he gets better from drill to drill and from 7-on-7 to the next 7-on-7 or from a team period to another team period. I think you can really tell how guys are learning and maybe some of that we have to go back as coaches and figure out a different way to teach a guy. Maybe he is more of a visual learner. Maybe he’s more of learning off of film or maybe he’s a guy who needs to go out there and walk through it a little bit more. We are figuring these guys out as we go along with this group.”

(on the synergy of the coaching staff) “We have a strong staff, we have a staff that is experienced, we have a staff of good communicators, we have a staff of guys that work really well with each other. Again, I think we have a staff of really good teachers. Guys that have taught a lot of systems in their careers, we have a staff of experience – whether they have a ton of experience as a coach or maybe the combination of playing and coaching. We took our time putting this staff together and it looks to me like a strong coaching staff.”

(on Louis Nix III not being at practice/important to him that a player is able to attend his graduation) “I thought it was important that we let him go back to Notre Dame and walk with his graduating class, so that’s what we did. He was in the morning meetings, then he left. He had a 2 o’clock flight back to South Bend and then he’ll be back later on tomorrow night or Monday morning at some time.”

“Yeah. I think if a guy has a chance to walk with his graduating class, I believe it’s important to let the guy go do that. I think he’s paid his dues at Notre Dame. I just think it’s important to allow guys to do that. He’s not going to miss much time. Any time missed is not good for him here but that’s something he’ll have to figure out to make that time up and I’m sure with Bill Kollar, he’ll figure it out.”

Haven't seen this posted, if so, sorry.

It's an interview with Bill O'Brien on Mike & Mike. I enjoyed it, hope you do as well.

Here it is.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

O’Brien takes a hands-on approach to practice
Quote:
One of the most striking differences between a Gary Kubiak practice and a Bill O’Brien practice is the manner in which they run them.
...
O’Brien, at least in his first few weeks on the practice field, has been much more hands-on … as in he wants his hands on everything and every position.
...
O’Brien, who took over as the third head coach in Texans history this offseason, walks around practice and gets involved with each position drill. He even gets hands-on during the special teams portion of practice.

“He’s everywhere,” said second-year player DeAndre Hopkins. “He’s on the rookies, he’s on the veterans. You really don’t get away with too much with him on the field.”

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

Quote:
And it’s not just O’Brien who is more hands-on. His position coaches have taken that same approach too. One veteran player said his position coach this season has been doing much more teaching on the field than his position coach from the previous regime.

“I love the teaching part of it,” O’Brien said. “I view coaching as being a teacher. That’s a large aspect of what my job is.”
WTF?

That's funny and sad...That's not something I'd expect on the NFL level..

I bet it was the O-line coach....

I wasn't a big fan of Benton though...

To me it seems like the o-line made more and more technique errors the longer he was here. Seems like the O-line just got worse every year since he was handed the job.

Now combine that comment with the first part of the posted article:

Quote:

Kubiak had a more laid-back approach. He watched his coaches coach. He watched his players play.
So who exactly was coaching at all? Guess it really was Coach Reed

Interesting revelations coming out regarding the styles of this HC when compared to the last one.

No more individual glory. More accountability. No starting positions handed to players due to tenure. A hands on head coach involved with each position. No more slacking on Segways and golf carts. Work and dedication as foundation for the team concept.

I'm liking what I'm hearing about the initial style of O'Brien and company. There seems to be quite a bit of an old school streak in him.

Wouldn't it be great if he turns out to be the Texan's Tom Landry. Don Shula or Chuck Knox?

Watching an interview of JJ last night, he didn't seem overly happy and used "hard work, good teammate, learning the playbook" eleventythreehundred times and sounded aggravated a few times he said them ( like he'd been instructed to say them) and almost sarcastic a couple of times.

Hopefully it's just a result of being worn out and not some deeper concerns on his part. I'm sure learning a whole new playbook and having to deal with new coaches wears a dude out, so maybe JJ just didn't feel like dealing with media at that point in time.

I noticed it too but its more than likely nothing. Got a lot on his plate.

Winning and the inevitable multi-million dollar contract he will be getting will cure all that

Eh, I was there. He was super polite. Didn't seem down or unhappy about things.
Pretty much a normal JJ interview except this year he won't be saying any of his personal goal stuff.

And none of the players want to "give away trade secrets."

None of the players want to put the spotlight on individual stuff. It was obvious that these are marching orders. You know, the work hard, be a good teammate stuff. That's how all the players pretty much are...like pulling teeth to get any info.

So don't read too much into stuff.

Awesome. I never read much into these types of generic quotes from players, but your clarification based on personal experience is certainly appreciated. Very cool to have one of our own on the inside.

Here it is.
Thank you for posting that. My favorite part is where OB is asked if Clowney / Crennel is a dream matchup. O'Brien responds that any young player would benefit from a good coaching staff. Completely dismisses any idea that any unproven player has any special value. His responses are always based on zero-hype principals. Logic.

Neat guy.
