Some Penn State fans want him back as their coach. Really. I say no since James Franklin is actually doing well.

I'll take O'Brien over what they have now, but it just emphasizes that we're kicking the can down the road to 2023.  Fixing things like penalties, turnovers, playcalling, and clock management is a camp / September / October thing.

Yeah and if a young supermodel picked up the phone and called me, I'd be interested too. Doesn't mean it's gonna happen.

The issues in Houston went way beyond O'Brien. Hell he can always say he got to the playoffs with Brian Hoyer one year and Brock Osweiler the next. He may be a tad of a hot head at times but he'd probably a good coordinator in the right circumstances. And right now the Patriots need an actual offensive coordinator.

No comment about the Hopkins trade?

He did a pretty decent job coaching the team. As a GM, he was a complete disaster. The Hopkins trade is only the tip of the iceberg

If challenging obviously correct calls, consistently burning all your timeouts in the third quarter of close games, and constantly squandering otherwise good drives with "creative" plays in the red zone makes one a decent coach, then yes, he was a decent coach.

I thought the Hopkins trade was forced by Jack Easterby?

Anyway, Bill-O may be a case of the Peter Principle in action. He was way over his head as coach/GM, but may be better off as an OC in the NFL.

He was winning the division with a mostly bad roster. As mentioned above, he made the playoffs with Brian Hoyer at QB so he must have been doing something right

The roster wasn't bad during most of his tenure. It was an outstanding roster. They just had no QB. What other major weaknesses do you think the Texans had?

I welcome him back in a split-second.

If I were in that situation, Ivwoild absolutely assume it was a prank.
