Right on!

Regardless of any pre-sign jitters, I'm all in and looking forward to 2014. I can't wait to see what he installs and the attitude he brings to the team.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

I am pumped about this hire. We finally have a head coach who has balls and will hold players and staff accountable. Anyone poo pooing this hire wouldn't be happy with any head coach.

I think having some passion for the game and showing it will make a huge difference to the team and the fanbase

Not trying to be Debbie Downer but I read he is this great QB coach from the Patriots, so is HE the reason Tom Brady is Tom Brady? I mean how much can you coach an already Hall of Fame QB?

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

He's the one I wanted. I'm content to merely see signs of significant improvement and that his system and expectations are starting to take hold in 2014. This team has enough talent that with the right coaching, drafting AND CONDITIONING this team can be up there in 2015. (Oh, and a good draft at QB, the O-line and DBs would help a lot!)

Was he already a Hall of Fame QB before O'Brien or just a pretty good QB on a great team with a Hall of Fame coach?

FIFY.

I'm sure I missed a few other areas of expertise -- so little time and such post size limits.

Link to an article about the offense O'Brien runs. Older article but a starting point.

Sounds a LOT different to Kubiak's approach.

Don't be surprised if we draft a TE early I reckon.

I respect you and like you but I disagree 100%. BO'B was the brains behind the up tempo NE offense. Grand slam hire. This guy is going to change the culture at Reliant and will be the guy to lead us to the Super Bowl.

I'm going to keep an open mind about it. O'Brien hadn't managed his first game, so we'll just have to wait & see.

Kubiak had been the OC at Denver forever & I thought surely he was ready to be a HC. I can't remember the particulars, but there was no doubt in my mind after game 1 that he was going to be a work in progress.

I hope O'Brien is more ready now than Kubiak was then. I don't think we can afford it. If we continue our decline from relevance we may never recover (that's why IMO, we've got to win in 2014).

My fingers are crossed, I'm rubbing my rabbit's foot, & I'll be making a trip to see the gypsy lady in the morning. I hope he's the right man for the job.
