Yep. Fire OB and get Eric Bieniemy as HC. He's knows what to do with a talent like Watson & Mahomes.I would no longer call myself a fan of this team but I like Watson. People pointing out every little mistake he makes and acting like he’s the problem are delusional.
I wanted Mahomes over him, but Watson isn’t some Scrub. No qb makes every read perfect. All of them miss things and make mistakes. They all go back and look at film and wish there were things they did differently.
Watson is a MUCH better qb than Matt Schaub could ever dream of being, but Schaub had great seasons here because he had a coach that actually knew wtf he was doing offensively. The offense wasn’t reliant on Schaub being perfect and making every read. The Scheme itself did a lot of the heavy lifting, but of course there were times when you needed a superstar play from Schaub and he couldn’t deliver and that was the disconnect.
The scheme is supposed to make it easier on all the players. You shouldn’t have to go out and spend so much capital to get top rated players just to be an average offense. OB is trying to buy his way into a good offense and that ain’t gonna work because he’s not good at any of his jobs.
He doesn’t develop players and he doesn’t take unheralded guys and make them better. That should tell you all you need to know. He can’t develop an OLine so he has to buy one. He can’t develop WRs so he spends high draft picks and trades for them. Can’t develop RBs so he trades his best we for one. Watson has not made any significant improvement in his game since he got here.
I use Kubiak as a reference but you can take any good offensive (or defensive) staff and it’s the same thing. They usually have quite a few guys that were under the radar and they take them and make them good players or even studs. Then they take great players and make them all world. Who exactly has gotten better here in all the years that OB has been here? Not many players. Good offensive staffs have a list of players they took and made better.
That alone should let you know what the problem is. If this clown cant develop OL and skill players he damn sure isn’t going to develop a QB.
I'm sorry (not sorry), but we know what O'Brien is at this point. Nothing we saw last night can lead us to believe that anything has changed. Kelly is just carrying his water. O'Brien, after 6+ seasons, puts out a pedestrian product. Good enough to beat the crap teams (so they are slightly better than mediocre), but cannot ever consistently compete with the elite teams. That's his M.O., and tigers cannot change their stripes.
This QB and franchise needs new leadership. Simple eye test as a football fan and trusting your gut instinct will tell you that.
