    Agreed, but disagree about Watson having a higher ceiling than Wilson. We can only hope Watson's career turns out as good as Wilson's has.

    He did it with Wilson.If he doesn't do it with Watson then that's on Watson.

    I second that because Wilson has been a specil player for the Hawks and if Watson is our Wilson then excellent, especially if he's able to win that big one for us !

    Depending his auto-correct system, it take a popular name and assume that is what is meant. Akeem Hunt has been very popular over the last few months versus Akeem Dent not at all.

    What is your take on Welkers departure? Sorry if you have given your opinion and I missed it.

    Promotion or lateral move? I though he did a good job with the slot guys.

    Too bad they couldn't stay healthy.

    Wilson has had a great career but he has also had some great talent around him as well. This year Watson became the first player to pass for 4k+ yards, 25 touchdowns, rush for 500+yards and 5 scores. All this behind a less than talented O line, TEs that spent more time blocking than catching and with Fuller and then Coutee down on injury. Don't get me wrong, Nuk having hands made out of glue helped a lot but still that's insane considering that this was his first, full 16 game season. That's why I say he has a higher ceiling.

    I read it and came to the same conclusions as before. We're either giving another O'Brien hanger-on a shot at being an OC for the 1st time (at an NFL level no less), or he's there for window dressing. Neither option seems all that appealing.

    The rest of the staff changes look meh (Yates) to good (Smith).

    Hope you are right.

    It's not like Wilson has been playing with a stellar OL. There is a reason the Hawks traded for DB.

    I like Hunt and Dent as defensive nickname.

    Well, not really. The Seahawks run an easier offensive scheme than our “Learning China Backwards” offense that is so complicated even O’Brien doesn’t even know it. Unless the Texans incorporate a little bit of West Coast to whatever the hell it is they’re supposed to be running, then I don’t think it’s fair to compare the two, or measure them up side by side.

    There's a scheme behind our offense? I must have missed it.

    Already making excuses before Smith has even coached Watson.

    Good job

    Is everything that could possibly go wrong with the Texans including player performance/Draft/FA/injuries etc.... BOB's fault in your eyes? Because if this is the case you are being very myopic.

    After hiring Carl Smith, I feel much better about an inexperienced Kelly as OC.

    He's brings years of NFL experience to the job and because he has no interest in being OC or HC, he will not be seen as a threat while adding input to their collaborative game planning sessions.

    Welker wanted to be a WR coach. The Texans were happy with the development of their WRs under the existing WR coach.

    OB is going to get the share of the blame while he insists on wearing 2 of 3 primary hats. He wants to be the HC and OC. When the team fails, it's the HC that takes the blame.....when the team fails due to a poor offensive performance.....it's the HC and OC who take the blame.

    Some leaders micro-manage until they fail. Some leaders successfully trust the leaders they surround themselves with. Great HC's have a great coaching tree with a lineage of success. OB needs to get better offensive coaches or he's going to fail due to his pride and insecurity.

    So let me follow here, collaborative play-calling does not mean that three dudes are playing rock, paper, scissors between each down during live action.

    Probably a committee meeting before selecting the play and have Cal intervene if they can't reach a consensus. But I'm still blaming Ricky if the play doesn't work.
