    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
    :turtle:

    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?
    :D

    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!

    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."

    I'm gonna kill somebody

    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.
