    QB coach Sean Ryan off to Detroit to be QB coach. Lateral move?

    Looks like OB gets to be HC/OC/QB coach now. When Welker leaves, oh man!!!

    What are you all going to do this off season? Guess I'll play racquetball.

    My expectation is for a pretty underwhelming add to the coaching staff, which we as a collection of posters "break our fingers" to criticize.

    well they are regurgitating what they are hearing from McClain, so if you want to believe John be my guest. I'm not sure that last prediction he got right for the Texans though

    How QB coach Sean Ryan's departure affects Texans' Deshaun Watson
    Aaron Wilson , Houston Chronicle Jan. 30, 2019 Updated: Jan. 30, 2019 5:03 p.m.

    Sean Ryan had built a strong relationship with Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson since the latter's arrival from Clemson two years ago.

    Ryan and Watson communicated clearly and got along well, collaborating adeptly as the former college national champion emerged as a Pro Bowl addition during an AFC South division championship season in 2018.

    Now, Ryan is gone having taken a lateral move to coach Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.


    That made sense for Ryan considering he didn't have a play-calling background and wasn't in line for an offensive coordinator promotion and didn't land one when interviewing with the Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns a year ago.

    What it all means for Watson depends on how the Texans handle replacing Ryan.

    THE REST OF THE STORY

    I need to find the tweet, but some Detroit area reporter I think tweeted out something saying Sean Ryan is really good at coaching a position, things like fundamentals and the little intricacies but those that have worked with him don't see him as a tactical, game plan type of mind

    Makes complete sense.

    He has done so well with our two TEs drafted last year. :sarcasm:

    And his playing career and most of his coaching was on defense. But he's an old OB friend.

    I don't have any names but I wish he would scour the college ranks for an OC.

    Give him a year as an assistant (or not) to get the feel of the NFL .

    This NFL habit of regurgitating coaches is ridiculous.

    It's not like he is the first coach to coach the opposite side of the ball he played, I mean you don't have to look far for an example O'Brien played defense in college and now coaches offense. There are numerous examples of this in the league as well as coaches who started out coaching on 1 side of the ball before moving to the other. It's not uncommon when someone is starting out in the coaching field. Also you guys on here constantly make fun of how inaccurate McClain's predictions are and how dumb he is etc. but now want to act like what he says his opinion is is gospel just so you can have a reason to be angry and complain.

    And he's doing a bang up job too.

    You must have meant this for someone else.

    Done well enough to to make it to the level of NFL HC, something less than what 1% of all coaches can say..

    I meant that in general, because everyone is running with Kelly being our next OC without any actual evidence besides the 610 guys think its going to happen because McClain said so.... McClain also had to eat newspaper because he just knew the Texans would take a QB in round 1 in '14 right? McClain hasn't had good insight into the Texans for years now, so the fact that people want to take his opinion as gospel is crazy to me
