    I'm hearing a rumor from my brother, from a source that he seems to believe, that the Texans have talked to Kliff Kingsbury. I don't know if I believe it, but I do feel like it'd be a great, mutually beneficial relationship.

    Take it with a grain of salt, I just thought it'd be interesting weekday fodder.

    I have a really hard time believing that they'd force an OC on BOB during an 8 game win streak but I would love to believe it.

    Also, they have exactly opposite offensive ideologies in that BOB thinks you need a run game to set up the occasional pass and Kingsbury has been pretty much all about the air raid

    That spread'em out, air it out garbage doesnt work in the nfl. So, if they were talking to Kingsbury, I could only hope theyd be talking to other candidates.

    Also, from what Ive seen, Kilff is dedicated to his alma mater to make it successful. Of course, Saban was dedicated to LSU, Les Miles to OK St, and so on and so on......

    Why wouldn’t they? KK is a brilliant offensive mind. Its most likely for a temporary consulting position if anything. This happens more than you think.

    Andy Reid disagrees. Yeah I know it's not quite the same. But it's close. Anyway, this would only work with HEALTHY playmakers; something the Texans are struggling with right now.

    You do know that Kliff got fired, right?

    Wuuuuut...? Did not know, and pretty dumb of Tech imo. I dont see them getting anybody as good as he was(even though he was mediocre to above average).

    Kliff would make the Deshaun v Mahomes debate interesting

    Kliff’s name has been mentioned all over the place. NFL, UNC, USC, etc...But honestly doubt this is true. On a 8 game win streak, philosophy couldn’t be more opposite, and doubt Cal is at a point where he’d give an okay for something like this.

    I think this would be interesting if we brought him in as an offense consultant. He could help with some passing schemes and would also be a great source of intel on Mahomes tendencies if we have to play them down the road.

    Bring him on as a consultant with the expectation of taking over as OC next year

    This would be the most likely scenario in my opinion.

    I agree with Bobby and those that say not to ruin a good thing, and that he has an opposite mindset to O'Brien. That's why I don't technically believe it, either.

    But I think it would be a great opportunity for Kliff himself to learn a more traditional offense, especially if he wants to advance his coaching career. Also, O'Brien wouldn't need or want him to do a lot initially.


    I like the idea, but I think it is more speculation. Just thought it was an interesting topic.

    O’Brien is a fairly young coach. He has shown he is innovative with the designs of the offense last year and some this year with Watson.

    Remember O’Brien and his NASCAR offense? Remember O’Brien and chip kelly where/are close. He has a pulse of what’s going on. People might not want to admit it either but O’Brien loves to push the ball down the field.

    So having said that I don’t think we have “talked” with Kliff but I could see something about a formal meeting in the off season. Don’t forget about Wes either or Sean Ryan.

    Why would they talk to him about next year now? My guess is that they're picking his brain, and seeing if he'd be willing to help consult for the rest of this year.

    If true, intel, more than any offensive input he might provide, could be (and should be) the driving reason. Frankly, this is Luhnow-level thinking. I hope it IS true.

    Would 100% be behind a move to bring in basically ANY creative offensive coordinator, especially if he thinks differently about the game than OBrien. I hate the way OBrien runs his side of the coaching staff and I think the offensive is pretty bland most of the time.

    That said, I don't buy this at all. OBrien has control over his staff, doesn't think he needs an OC and likes to promote guys up through the ranks after he's hammered them. Sean Ryan is basically the OC without the title or any of the playcalling duties.

    I think it would be a good idea and the added benefit of some Mahomes intel would be helpful. Of course he wouldn't be able to implement a full spread offense in the NFL...but he could come in now and get comfortable with the offense and the players while preparing some changes to integrate next season.
