The hot seat

Baby can you dig your man?
I know were skipping far ahead of what I want to discuss, but does today give you any gratification? Watson was BAD today against the bucks.

Do you have any "I told you so's" for Texans posters?

I’ll give you one positive to take from today.
Today the O wasn’t rolling. That seemed fine early because the D was returning seemingly everything for a turnover.
But then coming into the half, the momentum had shifted, because the Bucs had come back from a 14 point hole and we still couldn’t move the ball.

After halftime, OB managed to shift his gameplan and grind out a win.

We played around a poor game from DW4.

If we reach this off-season with 1 playoff win in OB’s tenure, and not since 2016, it isn’t acceptable though.

No I told you so.

I actually hope I'm wrong, but I dont see it and dont think a HC change will help either. DW4's just not good enough to win a SB and I dont think he ever will be. Some posters want to castigate me for this view and will continue to make excuses for DW4 starting with blaming everybody but DW4.
There has been worse QB's to win a Superb Owl trophy. The entire team needs to be better

There's been some word of you calling Watson ignorant. I never saw you post that but it seems to have garnered a lot of attention.

Did you say it?

Is that's ob's fault for poor coaching?

I've never called DW4 ignorant.

Although I dont think he's the sharpest tool in the shed. This is what's holding his progression back. IMHO Some say BOB's holding him back and I dont think that's true. They're just a bad mix.

Do you think OB would be better with a different qb?

Do you think Watson would be better with a different hc?

Surely you think Watson can still progress?

Let me ask you this, do you think Phillip Rivers, Carson Palmer, or Jim Kelly were good enough to win a Super Bowl?

Abruptly, a glass slams against the wall. A picture frame of some french vineyard falls and bourbon streams down.

Another patron storms over hearing our conversation. Apparently, he's not satisfied with my questions...

The room goes silent waiting for an answer.

And here we are @steelbtexan. Welcome to the offseason.

Watson was not great in the playoffs. Does it give you some solace to at least know you were right this year?

What changes would you make this offseason?

Some time has passed since our last meeting. I'm feeling a bit haggered and It probably shows on my face. Rooting for a team can do that to you if you care to much. Maybe I'm just getting old. @steelbtexan looks spry as ever. We have a few shots of burboun in a hangger far beyond my price range and we strap into helicopters for the evening hunt to come.

His rifle cracks sharply as he chambers a round in his 3 thousand dollar assault rifle.

The bell craft ascends with a throbbing hum and I aim for wild boar along his several thousand acre property as he does the same perched opposite of me in the helicopter.

My eyes survey the vast pasture land below us and finally I ask over the intercom, " Do think obrien or Watson is more detrimental to the team? Do you think..."

Our pilot enterupts me. "Got a herd right."

@steelbtexan fires off a dozen rounds landing 9 pigs. He and the pilot hoop and hollar on the intercoms.

"That was damned good shooting." The pilot says.

"That was good flying" @steelbtexan returns.

We're in the air for an hour and I nail a few boar myself. When we finally land and the bell engine is off I ask him timidly...

"What's it feel like to be right?"

Methinks you had more than a few shors in that hangger

Like a new HC is going to make a difference?

Not a pro BOB post for those that seem to enjoy keeping score.

Go Texans 1-1...Post OB!!!!!

Depends on the HC and staff. In season....RC and the current staff would have to carry this team unless this all goes down before the trade deadline. If the new HC and staff come in at seasons end then there'll be a lot of film watching and assessing. Hate to bring you down but a new GM, HC and staff would have Watson at the top of their priority list contract or no contract.

The upcoming Jags game could be the game that finally dooms OB's tenure with the Texans. Why? Clowney, Hopkins, Hyde, Miller, Reader, out. Tunsil, Cook, Johnson, Cobbs, Johnson in return. 0-4 after OB's 1st campaign as the new and smartest GM. The Jags could hand the Texans another defeat pushing them to 0-5. Titans, Packers, and Jags next.....if 0-5 doesn't push the eject button, maybe 0-8 does make it happen.
