It was a statement of humor. However the there may be some actual truth in the comment, "It might have more to do with the Three Stooges taking up residence at Kirby Dr & Reliant Parkway." Based on the performance of the last 12 years, great football minds, it's not. May be why you didn't think it funny. Either that or just no sense of humor.

Because it's so easy to start an expansion team in the NFL.

Not saying they didn't make mistakes, that is apparent, but football players are hard to predict.

Wish I could do it, I'd be a hell of a lot richer.

What do you think of Belichick's resume before he was made New England's Head Coach?

At least he had head coaching experience that included a playoff appearance and a playoff victory and he had a pre-existing relationship with the owner, having been an assistant coach under Parcells when he was at NE.

So we should have gone with Lovie?


Damn.... actually, since the Texans have yet to even announce a press conference, perhaps there is still hope.

Not much...until I saw an episode of "A Football Life" on Cleveland '95.

Belichick was clearly improving that team, and there is no telling what could/would have happened if Art Modell hadn't torpedoed that season with his sudden announcement to move the team.

The funny thing about the infamous coaches: they all seem to have HoF QBs.

Like Texecutioner mentioned, Belichick is what he is because of Brady.

Look at history. Bill Walsh had Joe Montana. Jimmy Johnson had Troy Aikman. Vince Lombardi had Bart Starr. The list goes on for the dynasty teams. Even though Terry Bradshaw gets maligned, he's still HoF and led the league in passing one year for Chuck Noll.

So, who knows? Whoever we get as HC will ultimately live or die by his QB.

To be honest, the more I think about it the more it wouldn't bother me. Dude coached a team with Rex Grossman at QB to the Super Bowl. That, to me, says something positive about the coach. And since they lost, he's probably still be hungry to get back and redeem himself.

Is Bill O'Brian a hot commodity simply because he wasn't terrible at Penn State? I'm trying to get excited about him but New England coordinators haven't been successful as Head Coaches and O'Brian only went 15-9 at PSU.

He was a hot commodity last year. There's no evidence to suggest he is a hot commodity this year. However, considering he was highly sought after last season (I think he was offered the Eagles' job but turned it down) & Penn State did not regress, the assumption is he would be a hot commodity this year.

But since McNair pounced on O'Brien, & they obviously hit it off, no one else made an inquiry... that we know of.

I might as well go ahead and get this out of the way, Gary Kubiak is a better offensive mind than Bill O'Brien.

Who cares. Is he a better head coach? That's all that matters.

That may be true, but as a head coach, game day manager and leader of men, O'Brien shows me more than Kubiak. I am excited about the hire.

Other than the Parcells connection, you just described Kubiak.
