snippet from Greg Cossel's interview today on 610, I'd wager this guy has watched more film than this whole board combined and has probably forgotten more about the game than many of us will ever learn On offensive design/playcalling We aren’t there when they’re putting together their game plan. So what are people reacting to? People react to results of the game. I don’t know how people felt in Houston when they won nine in a row. It’s hard to win nine in a row in the NFL, it’s really hard to do that. They did that, and you could argue they did that with an offensive roster that had significant holes. Okay so, was Bill O’Brien cheered on at that point? I’m not in Houston, but my guess is he wasn’t just as a national guy looking at the league. I don’t think Bill O’Brien was probably cheered on as wow look what he’s doing with less than great talent. He should be cheered for that. I mean this is not an offense that is a multi-dimensional complete offense. There’s too many missing pieces. And yet they won 9 in a row with a young quarterback that’s still learning – a lot of talent, a lot of smarts but still learning – and with a great receiver. but not much else… with a solid running back… and an O-line that some might say could have been the worst in the league. So I guess I’m missing the idea that somehow Bill O’Brien is doing a poor job. I love Deshaun. I know Deshaun. I think he’s a phenomenal kid. He’s a good player with a chance to be a really good player. Whether he gets there this year or sometime after, no one knows that. But after his rookie year the media presented him as the chosen one. There was a national perception that this guy is now a top-five, great great quarterback. So I think when the offense didn’t quite function like that all of the time, there was some sense that it must be the coaching. Because Deshaun Watson, he’s Michael Jordan. He’s the chosen one. And I think that was so unrealistic and unfair to Deshaun… who is a hard worker, everything about Deshaun is positive. But it was unrealistic to expect him to be that, as a second-year quarterback with the talent that was surrounding him.
