And Frank Reich did last year. Who cares if you win the division if your division rivals move past you in the playoffs?Until this afternoons game, he already has.
I guess I'm weird in that I've changed my mind about O'Brien a lot the past 6 (six!) years. I was proud of him for finally diversifying the offense for Watson (never thought his pride would let him do that). But he reverts back to his inflexibility, like the first half of the Bills game.
Ultimately, for me, he has to win this game, or I'm close to a final thumbs-down on his ability to win past the Divisional Round, even though he has a true franchise QB who has gained the national spotlight.
