    From what I've been informed, most teams have such a "coach" up in the booth..........including the Texans. These entities basically make the warning/calls and call them down to the HC.

    I take it then there is something wrong with calling a time out that benefits the other team? If not, why would we need such a person as a clock management specialist when OB has everything under control?

    Yep. I do it every home game (so I basically pay them) but there isn't a place to plug my headset in, thus clock management continues to be a problem.

    Or TEs up the seam or crossing routes behind LBs off play action.

    Something is wrong here.

    That's like saying a QB, WR or RB got a boost from big plays. Well duh.

    Not sure ol OB knows the TE's can actually run routes. Not sure ol OB even knows he has TE's on the team.

    Am I the only one that does this?

    I open up TexansTalk hoping that there a new thread announcing that Bill O’Brein has resigned, been fired, or mutually parted ways?

    I can’t be the only one.

    You realize he led the team in tackles playing only 14 games. Plus an INT for a pick 6, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 5 passes defensed. He had a very good year.

    His numbers there look pretty good. But they do not account for all the times that he was burned in pass coverage.

    Modern NFL, LBs shouldn't be called upon to cover more than a small zone and he was very good at that.

    ...see the LA Chargers defense against the Ravens. They took all the LBs out to combat the speed of Baltimore's offense.

    Or like the Texans finished 11-5 just because of Watson and the defense.

    Cunnigham is an avg LB.

    He's not what they thought they were getting. They thought they were getting Leonard, they got another avg LB that struggles in pass coverage. Cole is actually the best coverage LB they have.
