Hall of Fame
Looks like he's in the middle of the pack.I keep on hearing all the criticism directed towards O'Brien re. his challenges. So I tried to do a search on any stats that reflected challenges by NFL coaches. I found this interesting post on Reddit that addresses this subject:

Current NFL Head Coach Challenge Statistics
I thought I'd have a wild Friday evening so I decided to take a look into current NFL Head Coach Challenge Statistics. I only included info for seasons in which challenges were allowed. This affects Belichick, Carroll, & Gruden, hence Andy Reid shows more seasons coached. I learned a few surprising things.
Harbough challenges the most, Marrone wins the most challenges, Belichick has a surprisingly low Challenge Win % (especially in contrast to his Game Win %), and River Boat Ron literally is a coin flip away from being right on every challenge.
Also, Matt Nagy and Mike Vrabel have both yet to win a challenge in the NFL apparently. They both had winning first seasons which leads me to believe that reading too much into Challenge Win % might not be a good idea. Still, something to look out for heading into 2019.
Anyway, the table:

Kinda like his coaching record.
Hopefully as the talent improves around him he can continue to improve in both areas.
Like I've said before, I like the direction the franchise is headed in under BOB/Easterby and hopefully Caserio is added this offseason. The contrast in how business used to be done vs how it's being done now is stark and is only going to get better.
