There was definitely a time in there when Brady changed from "game manager" to "bad mofo with the football"

I don't know if O'Brien was responsible for that, or if he was there during that transition. Just saying Brady is a much better QB now than he was even after his first couple of Super Bowls (even though he hasn't won a Super Bowl in the "GOAT" era of his career).

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

Two things that I keep hearing about O'Brien that really have me stoked: He's a teacher and he's a motivator. These are two qualities that you see in all the great coaches.

Remember the wisdom of the greatest:

"Coaches who can outline plays on a blackboard are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their players and motivate."
~ Vince Lombardi


McNair will hire the best Xs & Os guys that are willing to come here. What we need is a leader, not coordinators like Kubiak and Capers.

Ok, right. Since Tom Brady is Tom Brady, O'Brien couldn't possibly be a "great" coach. Look, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you!

2 stooges win again!


I like that Rick and Bob identified early that a move needed to be made.

Identified their man. Fired Kubiak and got after their guy weeks before anyone else could.

But oh yeah, we will never win the Super Bowl with Smith as GM and Bob as owner.


This is the most excited I've been in months about football!

Go Texans!!!

I'm really glad they got this done. I cant wait to see what he can do with this team. It will be nice to see our coach actually look like they give a damn instead of just staring off into space.

Didn't O'Brien ran 4-3 D at Penn State? Would he still keep our D 3-4? I guess it all depends on who we have for DC and his scheme.

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.
Nah, I have a great sense of humor. Just read some of the negative rep I get if you don't believe me!

The reason I didn't think it was funny was: it wasn't funny. Kind of like the Three Stooges - sometimes stupid is funny, but just because something is stupid doesn't make it funny.

But on a serious note you seem to be one of the posters who hates and despises EVERYTHING about the Texans. The owner is a fool who will only hire complete imbeciles. Every draft pick is crummy, every contract is bad. If the Texans have the first pick in the draft, then Bridgewater sucks. I bet if they had the 8th pick then you would be saying they are idiots for not trading up to get him. No matter who the Texans hire as coach or draft at QB it will always be the absolute WORST EVER because - the Texans did it and you despise them with every fiber of your being.

So why are you here? Pick a team with an owner you respect (I know tough for you now that Bud is dead (<-- that was that humor thing you are trying for)). Or if none can be passably good for you then ignore football. Take up golf. Or chase strippers. Whatever, stop making yourself so miserable!

This hire is so different from Texans norm it has me pumped.

Bad baseball analogy incoming. Sorry. Capers & Kubiak were singles hitters. Capers hit around .240 and Kubiak more like .280. Both could get hot and go on a hit streak (win some games) but they needed help to drive runs in (advance in the playoffs). O'Brien is a homerun hitter. He's either going to hit one out of the park or strike out.

Thanks Mr McNair for taking the risk. Let's hope we see some homers.

my guess it will be some form of hybrid defence.
From what i have seen and read he runs a very adaptable offence and defence, depending on who we are playing and situation.

What? I always pictured Capers as more of a .200 hitter and I don't recall him ever going on a hit streak...
