448 attempts
54.2% completion
3119 yards
22 TDs
14 INTs

And did this with him:
446 attempts
60.5% completion
3271 yards
24 TDs
5 INTs

His second year he took a true freshman QB (granted, a very highly rated one) and did this:
392 attempts
58.9% completion
2955 yards
20 TDs
10 INTs

This tells me that he either has the ability to develop QBs or at least has an eye for QB talent. Both of those things are needed around here.
A college QB with less than 60% completions and a TD to INT ratio of less than 3 to 1 is considered a below average QB.

I guess that's better than Kubiak, The Quarterback Coddler, who would stroke Schaub's head and let him suckle at his man teet.

Considering that he was a true freshman starting in the Big Ten on a team under scholarship reductions that had also lost numerous starters to transfer, it's pretty clear he did just fine.

Dude, if his name ain't Bortles Texian can't be bothered to swing from that jock. He only has eyes for Blake.

Yes, it is.

....and....gross!

I can't help thinking about how much happier Watt would probably be with a HC that doesn't put up with bad play, lack of effort, lack of concentration, etc. from his teammates.

Also, Lombardi HATES the Texans. HATES us. I'm sure the thought of us getting O'Brien drove him crazy and he wanted to compete with us.

Even though the Texans are clearly the better job in the NFL, I guarantee you Lombardi is bashing the Texans to O'Brien, his agent, and the Patriots.

Sources at the meeting have said O'Brien's view is essentially that by not simply accepting the sanctions and moving on, Penn State could be hurting its own cause, or at least the cause of the football program going forward.

O'Brien seems OK with those reports.

"I have been asked many, many questions over the last 19 months about the sanctions so I accepted the invitation and I went down there," he said. "I don't have anything to hide; I just want to do what's right for these kids and this football program. So no, I am not upset about anything."

Fisher was QB coach and may have been redundant with BO'B working closely with his QBs.


As far as...

Not sure why BO'B gets dinged for other people's actions/behaviors/etc. I wouldn't have touched Mangenius, McDaniels, Pioli, and a few others. But Ozzie Newsome was a front office exec under Belichick... does BO'B get any love for that fact? Nope, doesn't have anything to do with him. You either like the guy and take him at face value or you don't.

I don't think La Canfora's unnamed source quoting amounts to anything more than headline seeking. We'll see...

Who cares? If O'Brian wants to coach the Browns and be the 6th head coach fired in eight years with that organization, so be it. If he wants an owner that is patient and will stick by his coach during tough times (Kubiak in 2010) he will join the Texans. It should be a no brainer for any logical person.
