The most exciting thing I've enjoyed about O'Brien as the HC thus far is his application of common sense.
I'm liking the hire so far, even though he wasn't my favorite choice.

I really like the fact that OB seems flexible with everything. If something doesn't work, he doesn't try to pound that square peg into the round hole, like the previous regime seemed to do.

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

I like the basic direction we've been going.

But it's only been two preseason games and the reason a lot of it feels positive at this point is because of how we blew out the Falcons in that second game (and because of some good reports from Denver.)

I'm hoping for the best. I liked the OB selection. I liked the draft. I didn't hate free agency.

But I've got to see how this translates in to W/L over the next couple of years before I'm sold on it.

It's football and we have a team and the season is about to start. Everything is sunshine and unicorn farts until reality hits. Still, I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts. One thing I've realized about following the Texans and that is that regimes that need to go get a lot of time to wear out their welcome. We're not at that point yet and so hope is still alive. I'm going to stay in this mode for as long as the facts will let me.

Agreed. It seems like years past. It would take hell or high water to move someone down on the roster chart once the coaches had their mind set....again I might be over analyzing

AMEN, brothers!! That's why I don't have any real expectations other than be competitive and improve week to week. I expect setbacks, close losses, ugly losses, close wins, and maybe a blowout win or two. I'm just gonna throw up my hands and enjoy the rollercoaster ride!!!

That's an incredibly uncharitable way to look at a league that has probably more parity than any other in the world.

And yet the AFC has been represented in the Super Bowl by Brady, Manning and Big Ben in 11 of the last 13 years. Parity, indeed.

Bill O'Brien: A coach's life
By Brian Smith


Quote:
While Houston sleeps, Bill O'Brien awakes.

A clock strikes 4:30 a.m. and a first-year NFL coach attempting to stabilize and reenergize a staggered team readies his 44-year-old body for a four-month season that never actually ends.

By 5 a.m., O'Brien is inside NRG Stadium. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and a few coaches are already working through a new day. O'Brien briefly remains alone, finding comfort in the emptiness of his new office and the silence that precedes the noise that follows.

"I like to work early in the morning before everybody gets here," said O'Brien, who became the third coach in franchise history on Jan. 3, replacing a fired Gary Kubiak. "It's a quiet time where I can get a lot of work done."

For O'Brien and the Texans, there is so much work to be done.

Rebuilding a broken team for a patient but hungry owner in Bob McNair, who ended Kubiak's unfulfilling eight-year reign by saying a franchise that finished an NFL-worst 2-14 in 2013 wasn't going to wait around for its next era to begin. Reinspiring a collection of high-priced professional athletes, who drifted apart last season as 14 consecutive defeats mounted and the worst overall year in team history became a numb reality. Reigniting 53 players, who for years haven't been strong, tough or driven enough in an unflinching league that demands total sacrifice and the unity of one.

Then there's real life. O'Brien's New England roots created a son, brother, husband and father of two boys. The untypical NFL path that followed – Brown University; 20 criss-crossed football years, doing everything from low-pay grunt work to standing alongside legendary New England coach Bill Belichick – branched off with an oldest son, Jack, who is being treated at Texans Children's Hospital for lissencephaly, a chromosome-deletion medical condition that affects about one in 100,000 children and prevents the normal development of a fetus' brain, resulting in almost total debilitation.

"I have pretty good..."

Default Re: Texans hire Bill O'Brien as HC

Maybe this story was posted somewhere in this thread but I certainly can't find it at this point. It was written by David Jones on September 10, 2013 prior to UCF and Penn State going head to head.

Jones detail's Bill O'Brien and his relationship with George O'Leary, Ralph Friedgen and Doug Marrone, Bill's best friend (and future Texans staff member, I believe.)

It's a more personal account from the perspective of Friedgen.

So that reminds me. Is Bill O'Brien really a bird that left the nest? I mean he came to the Patriots with a pretty good coaching history & he left the Patriots doing his own thing. So really, he was just passing through.

Just like all of us, he's an amalgamation of all his experiences & the Patriots was just part of it. He refers to his experiences with Georgia Tech & George O'Leary as much if not more than the Patriots. Not that he out right mentions either.

O'Brien has been coaching for 20 years, only 3 of them associated with Belichick.

Sure. I thought it was interesting to learn that basically you had Friedgen, O'Brien and Marrone all creating together, thanks to some diverse personnel at Georgia Tech and O'Leary urging the offensive staff to think outside of the box.

It seems that would create a very good foundation for offensive creativity and flexibility that seems to have served O'Brien well.

And much to Thunderkyss' point, I think it supports the idea that O'Brien is much more than another fruit from the Belichick tree.

After watching the GB-Sea game, I can't believe the Texans didn't at least interview the Seahawks' OC (Darrell Bevell) for the HC job.

Some team will be smart enough to hire him next season.

Cleveland should have went after him. I think he would be the perfect coach for Manziel.

I can't believe the Texans didn't interview a lot of people.
I like McNair, but the guy just doesn't hire head coaches correctly.

He suffers from impulse buy every time out!
