Losing out would end BoB’s regime here; I’m pretty sure of that. I don’t think it’s going to happen, though. The Texans are too talented. But if it does happen, that would mean the players have given up on O’Brien. Once the players quit on a HC it’s over.
I will believe it when I see it because whenever it seems like he is finally on thin ice they give him more power. He will have a stake in ownership before next season with his good luck
