This is strictly conjecture.
with all the talent schwartz has on the defence and he still can't make it work. i would much rather rex ryan but i think he will be a HC job instead

O'Brien agrees to an interview with the Texans.

Quote:
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported on NFL Network's "Around the League Live" that O'Brien is one of the Houston Texans' top candidates to fill their coaching job, according to sources familiar with the team's process. O'Brien and the Texans agreed to have an interview after Christmas, which means it's already happened or it will happen in the near future.

Hopefully it means it already happened, they agreed in principal, and aren't worried about having to deny it in the media.

Default Re: Texans interested in Bill O'Brien

O'Brien is intriguing, but I'd like to know what type of staff he would pull together. Would he bring in a lot of college coaches? Would he be able to pull from Belichick's current staff? That should be a big part in deciding whether to offer O'Brien the job.

Rex's biggest problem will be overcoming the bad taste his father Buddy Ryan left in the mouths of Houstonians. I know it was the Oilers and 20 years ago, but the old men have long memories.

Winning would wash away a lot of things, not the least of which would be memories. Rex would actually intrigue me a lot as a DC; he might not give a damn about NFL offenses on his teams but by golly his defenses are why the Jets have ever been competitive lately.

Default Re: Texans interested in Bill O'Brien

Glad to hear we landed an interview with O'Brien. He shoots to the top of my list. I didn't think there was a chance of him leaving Penn State. This is the route the Texans need to go if it pans out. Much better than the retread route. Hopefully O'Brien turns out to be the Bellichik assistant that turns out to be a chip of the old block and not a Romeo Crennel, Charlie Weiss, Eric Mangini, or Josh McDaniels.

He will bring in some of his friends who aren't good coaches, but are good friends.


Oops, my bad, I was still thinking of our last head coach...

I would certainly hope he was a step above Bellicheat, rather than a clone.

I'm about to reach the point where I might not care if the Texans cheat as long as they win.

The Patriots and Broncos run so many rubs/pick plays with their WRs and TEs and get away with it. I'm waiting for a defender to just start knocking their receivers out when they do that **** but the damn player protection rules and fines are keeping that from happening.

If that's the way it's played now then we need to play that way. Either it's illegal and it's penalized or they ignore it and it is time the Texans got good at doing it.

It's time to win consistently and Belichick's team is one of the few that wins consistently. If he walked out of there and announced that his services were for sale I'd hire him immediately.

Since Penn State is on probation is not their season technically over & a deal could be reached with Bill O'Brien now?

I believe so.

And since they've already talked to Lovie, they've already fulfilled the Rooney Rule.

But the Texans will want to see what David Shaw is going to do - whether he's willing to leave Stanford - and this announcement and any interview won't happen until after the Jan 1st Rose Bowl.

He's a college coach - pretty much all of them are available right now (for a price).
