Texans need to fire O'Brien

I know it's the Chiefs but come on being up 24 to 0 then blowing it like they did so quickly is awful. 

 

I honestly hope they keep him because they won the South but doubt it happens. 

 

I live in Texas and I can tell y'all one thing everyone wants O'Brien gone!

The going for on 4th Down Multiple times was a great call

I was never overly fond of O’Brien.  My brother loves him. He says he came in and got Penn State back on track.  But i remind him he also dropped them for the NFL shortly after.

  I have just questioned his coaching.

Not going for it on 4th and less than a yard on the KC 10 showed no guts! Going for it up 24-7 on your 30 was *ically dumb!

this Frank Reich hate is ridiculous. he did a great job imo with the huge disadvantage he had at QB this year. With a great QB last year he was damn near coach of the year. somehow still barely missed the playoffs with a backup caliber QB this year.

Hmm. 

 

--Kicking the field goal to go up four scores was the smart play.  O'Brien was pretty confident in his defense at that point.  So, it's hard to really criticize that choice...except in hindsight.

 

--The fake punt...well, that's only a good call if it works.  Obviously, it didn't.

I was calling for them go for it on 4th and inches.. you go for the kill there.. EVERYONE knew sooner or later their O was going wake up.. your best option was to destroy the D confidence and he didn’t..

 

your Up by 17!! You punt in your own end unless it’s like a yard or less.. was just a dumb call.

They wont, and who could they get to coach a team that doesn't have a future long term.  He's shipped away their draft picks for the next 2-3 years. and they have some big name contracts coming due.

Did the offense give up 51 points? Did the offense collapse in the second quarter handing the lead to KC? Romeo, Romeo where for art thou? As long as it is not Houston no one cares where you are. Leave town now. Defense wins loses championships.

I agree.  Had they went for it and not got it, it would have stoked KC.    The fake punt was just dumb at that point of the game and at that part of the field.

Agree. A 4th down stop is a momentum changer. I thought FG was the right call. 
 

The fake punt was a head scratcher. If you make it you will still need several 1st downs to get into field goal range. If you don’t make it, you have really juiced your opponent and the entire stadium. Just a bad risk/reward scenario, IMO.

He’s a fraud who makes the playoffs every year because something random like Luck retiring or Mariota busting happens in the division every year. As competitive as the NFL is it’s amazing how guys like him keep getting gigs, then every now and then 1 of them keeps the gig (him) while guys like Zimmer and Coughlin are always on the hotseat.

Every year and I mean every year Texans fans get on the talk radio with the cry baby hosts and together they perpetually whine about losing whatever game they lost blaming the coach no matter who that coach happens to be at the time. "They should not have punted....gone for the first down.... passed....run....FG. The Texans have only one thing to be proud of, going to Dallas and beating the Cowboys in their very first game as a new NFL franchise. If it is always the coach's fault why bother paying for talent?

O'Brien deserves some blame.  He is always making poor play calls.  That said, the team also deserves their fair share of blame.  

To their credit, they have made the playoffs 4 of the past 5 seasons.

The team deserves credit for not quitting on that Jim Harbaugh minus the football knowledge part crybaby jock tbh. I don’t know how they maintain their motivation tbh. He’s a trainwreck who thinks he’s so great for winning 8 games at Penn St or whatever it was. That team with a good coach = over.

    • I would strongly consider signing FA safety Eric Reid.   Than we need to see about focusing on LT, TEs, and DEs for next season.  Worse case may have to see how the Cardinals are using Kelvin Beachum and offer a trade if we end up losing AC early mid-trade season.  Other potential upcoming FA's may look more into would be TB Bucs WR Chris Godwin, TE Gerald Everett, and DE Trent Murphy.     I realized we just paid Kelly at center but oft-injured game-time availability has me wondering how our backup would do.  Am looking at Centers Daniel Kilgore (KC), Evan Brown (Browns) or Josh Andrews (Jets) as potential backup targets.    As for the 2021 draft my early LT target to keep an eye on is Jackson Carman from Clemson in Round 1.  Again I am high on S Hamsah Nasirildeen (Florida St) who went back to school but should still be a first rounder.  TE Pat Freiermuth (Penn St) has me intrigued.  As for DEs had Edge Patrick Jones II (Pitttsburgh) on my wish list in Round 2.  Hilton's age on the end of his career had me looking at WR Nico Collins (Michigan) in Round 3.  Collins has solid hands and no history of drops.
    • I’ve found my new favorite way to watch a game.  Really gives you an idea of what's happening.    You can see play design, who’s out of position, who missed a block, who fell down, even who’s pickin their nose or scratchin their butt. All 22 on the field so you miss nothing.   I especially like to see the blocking bubbles grow or collapse on the line.   I just cant say how much i’m gaining from this.  Each play is run twice...once from sideline (all 22), then from endzone (all 22).  Great to see the plays develop, or a defender fly across the field to a tackle.   No sound, so i will still watch normally first (or radio sometimes for drama), but if anyone never checked it out..... you must!  I cant believe i waited this long.  I have such a better idea of what we’re trying to do and who looks good or bad on EVERY play.   Also, i feel better about last week after watching for some odd reason.  I kept finding myself saying “oh, thats why that happened.”   The normal perspective is such a focused frame , usually on the ball.  We’re missing all the little battles going on in the periphery.
    • Well the misconception was the Jags were going to tank this season. No one told them that.  Your sky is falling opinion is way too pre mature. 
    • My questions are can he find the crack and what will he do mean the crack ain’t there.  Wisconsin doesn’t do cracks, they block chasms against the cornfield circuit.
    • Many die hard colt fans are sugar coating this loss as they want to believe so hard that this was a fluke or lol actually believing the Jags are a good team!  After the Jags just unloaded ALL their probowl talent, you think the roster is loaded?  If their loaded, what do you call this colts roster?  I think the Colts overlooked their opponent even know they haven't won there since a grip.
