Default O達rien Explains What Type Of Quarterback He Wants

Didn't see this posted. If it was, my bad!

O’Brien Explains What Type Of Quarterback He Wants In Houston; LINK

Should settle the nickname debate:

Quote:
Coach O’Brien, or OB as many call him and he admits is his favorite nickname
QB Talk:

Quote:
“This system over the years has had mobile quarterbacks,” O’Brien told In The Loop. “It’s had tall quarterbacks, quarterbacks who were six feet tall, quarterbacks that were six foot five, quarterbacks that have had all different types of skill sets. What you do is you try to look at what’s available to you, what’s already on the team and try to make sure the system fits the skill set of the players.”
Quote:
“I was able to see Blake Bortles up-close because we played Central Florida at Penn State and they beat us. He was a smart player. An accurate passer. A guy that could do a lot of different things. You could tell he was really a student of the game. He’s a good football player.”
The other two O’Brien hasn’t studied much of, just catching a few games on TV over the past couple years.
“I haven’t watched Teddy Bridgewater much at all. I have seen him on TV. An exciting player. A guy that did a great job for Louisville. A guy I can tell is a good football player.”
“Obviously a very exciting player,” O’Brien said of Johnny Manziel. “A guy thats a playmaker that does a lot of great things on the field.”

Default Re: O達rien Explains What Type Of Quarterback He Wants

I heard him make the same statements before , must have been a day or two after the hiring.


As for what's already on the roster , the position is a train wreck .... the QB position played the biggest part in derailing the teams season.

Remember, he's a graduate of the Bill Belichick School of CoachSpeak


so I don't expect any earthshaking revelations from his pressers. I wonder how long he's gonna milk the "well, we're still evaluating the players.." schtick.
Not that I blame him. Why tip your hand in the press when you don't have to?

FWIW, I think his nickname is actually "Obie" due to how he spelled it in his Brown University yearbook entry.

I have felt from the beginning that O'Brien will be after Bortles after facing him and knowing his HC so well. I have no idea of what his strategy will be to get him, but that is the QB that I think our coach will want the most.

LOL, no one here has a clue what he's thinking. He won't hint worth a fart sniff what his plan is. He's about to begin his masterpiece.

Buuut, I did hear the podcast and the sayings about someone who studies early and late in the day and is the best person they can be on and off the field screams Teddy to me.

It looks pretty good. Of course, everyone was saying the same thing about this class last year. I'm sure next year it will be the same as usual.

I'm convinced we go with Manziel at #1 if he doesn't throw up all over himself during the draft process. And the state of Texas and the rest of the country will go nuts!

Although Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett refused to address questions from the media about alleged drug use at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis -- after dodging several queries, Mallett abruptly ended his press conference -- he apparently came clean in interviews with NFL teams.
"One G.M. said Mallett was the first quarterback ever to admit his drug usage to him in interviews, and his willingness to be honest about his past and acknowledge issues is viewed as a positive," according to Pro Football Weekly. "Concerns about his history of use could impact his draft position, though."

Ryan Mallett reportedly has discussed past drug usage with NFL teams. Some teams view this as a positive.
Auburn's Cam Newton and Missouri's Blaine Gabbert are the only two quarterbacks considered top 10 picks in this year's draft. Mallett is generally considered to be in the next tier, along with Washington's Jake Locker, Florida State's Christian Ponder, TCU's Andy Dalton and Nevada's Colin Kaepernick.
In addition to the drug rumors -- Mallett reportedly never tested positive at Arkansas -- his character was sullied by an arrest for public intoxication. Some NFL teams are concerned about Mallett's reputation as a "big party guy," according to PFW.

If I hear him say just one more time

"everybody wants to know if your defense will be a 3-4 or a 4-3... but now about 70 percent of the games are played in nickel and dime defense because of the way the type of league that it is."

Regardless of the source, that trade makes a lot of sense. Mallet was O'Brien's choice in that draft, and Mallet has now had two years to study the system. That trade would be the best scenario among the currently possible options.

If this really happens Texans are in the drivers seat. Mallet will be a free agent after next season. Why trade for him when you can just wait a year and get him without a trade? NE can get something but with my first comment what can they really get? 3rd rounder if lucky? 4th?

They also have to decide if he is the QB of the future and how long will Brady keep playing.

We have 2-3 QBs available at the top of the draft that Im fairly certain could learn the scheme quickly and bring more to the table than Mallett. Tired of trading for backups.
