    Take away all the early drops by KC and they likely would have dropped 60.

    The Colts, Jaguars, and Titans have all made the AFC Championship since Bill O'Brien has been the HC of the Houston Texans.

    If that isnt an indictment against Bill O'Brien, then i dont know what is....

    Nah, everyone wants him.fired but he will be back so I can give you my same predictions for next year. Division title against bad teams. 1st round playoff loss, repeat cycle again.

    The blocked punt was legitimate work by the special teams. You can’t take that away. So 51-17. But then we also gave them a fumbled kick return and a short field with a dumbass fake punt play. So take away 14 from them. 37-17. Ends up the same. 20 point beat down.

    Fire O’Brien.

    My favorite comment in the game thread was "Does B.o.B have a concussion?" during that fake punt.

    Would be a better situation if we could fire O’Brien then get Caserio and new head coach before the draft but I think Caserio can’t sign until after the draft.

    He'll get fired eventually. And when he does, everyone will wonder why it didn't happen 4? 5? 6? 7? years sooner. And then we'll all be depressed that the organization wasted those years sticking with a coach everyone else knew kind of sucked much earlier.

    BOB is the 7th longest tenured HC. Every other coach with a longer tenure has at least made a conference championship and all but Reid have won a Super Bowl.

    Bill O'Brien as Texans coach:
    2-4 playoff record (wins against Connor Cook making his first NFL start, and the Bills melted down and failed to kick at the end of regulation.)
    Average game score: 17 - 28
    Point differential: -66

    Yes, let's keep doing this!

    :( :( :(
    This is the best stat in the thread. Close it down.

    And 6 of the 8 quarters played this post season we were outscored 67-7 I believe. Someone correct me if I'm wrong

    I don't think Jason Garrett has made it to conference championship and he has an even longer tenure b4 his recent firing.

    Goes to show recent Texas football teams have a tendency to hold onto sht-mediocre coaches while wasting the prime of their players.

    Management seems uber risk averse. They have legions of fans supporting the status quo, so the fear of change is bigger than the chance of improvement.

    Seems like it’s understood straight across the board from fans to every media member that BOB is a dumbass
