But he was a great project manager and sooo smart from a technical point of view that his intellect was much too valuable an asset to just kick out the front gate. So they got him a "QC" man to shadow him around and let him know when his temper was about to get him into trouble.

I hope that's not what's happening here.

Alright, I'm done too. Sorry for the hijack, folks. Carry on.

hmmm...that's kind of a curious thing when I think about it.

Is it common for a HC to have a QC guy looking over his shoulder?

And is this O'Brien's idea?

I don't want to read too much into it when I don't know the trend or history of such an idea, but it seems kinda' weird after reading your post. Did the great coaches have QC guys?

Paul Dunn? What happened to the guy from Iowa? Is this the same Dunn that got fired from Atlanta? He was an assistant OL coach.

Most positions carry and expectation of product delivery.
Strength & Cond. Coach gets the boys strong and fit to play the season
Defensive Coordinator is expected to build a defense that keeps us in games
Position coaches teach the fundamentals of their respective positions AND what is expected from them on their side of the ball.

Those are all clearly defined and measurable "products". Should the guy responsible not produce them, he's replaced

WTH is the expected "product" of the "Director of Football Research"???
...better footballs? Spy cameras?
How will McNair know when he's screwing up...? ...or doing a fabulous job...??
Someone help me out here.

It's really better when the QB calls most of the plays, but most coaches don't believe me on this. The HC should send in a play occasionally, and other coaches may suggest a special play to the HC.

If he's anything like the Patriots' "Director of Football Research," look here:
http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/eticket/story?page=adams


So basically, high-level abstract football analytics.

EDIT: Jim Bernhardt's role will probably look more like this:
http://www.pennlive.com/pennstatefoo...bernhardt.html

So basically, Jim Bernhardt is the Ernie Adams to Bill O'Brien's Bill Belichick. But Bernhardt is probably not nearly the football savant that Adams is, so he will probably do more "Bill O'Brien Quality Control" than "Regression Analysis on Why We Should Go For It on 4th and 2."

It's not complicated.

You steal the other teams plays and signals and use that to your advantage.

Simple. If you're not cheating, you're not trying!

Wow....
If Bernhardt brings half as much to the table as the focus of that article, O'Brien - and the Texans - will be very lucky. No wonder Belichick has been so successful. He's got a football savant to advise him.

oh and rep for finding this article. Good digging.

hehe, yeah, I do not seem to possess the magic powers of reading between the non-existent lines or future prediction.
