Hall of Fame
That Clemson offense was enough for the Texans to lead the NFL in scoring during that stretch with Watson....not to mention Watson set some rookie records along the way. That was the only blip on the 6 year OB "Offensive Life Alert Monitor". Instead of building on that success, OB chose to go backwards as he pushed his tried and true but unsuccessful offense.
The thing is dude knows this so why is he acting like he has selective amnesia around these parts. He beat the flip out of those drums around that time. The following season he said the youngster was stupid because he couldn’t run O’Brien high octane offense. Then he went on to say we need to run Clemson’s playbook since Watson couldn’t run a pro style offense. Then the regression and can’t win a championship mockery begun. Oh and don’t forget Watson needs to change the way he plays to satisfy him.
When you really go back and look at the entire picture. You would see exactly what happened here. O’Brien going back to his offense, “might I add hasn’t been successful yet“ is what really regressed. Instead of owning up, he’s actually pointing figures, thus the reason why he said, “Hopkins wasn’t running the right routes and not practicing”.
