Mullens went an impressive 25/36 for the Niners in their Week 3 win, throwing for 343 yards and a touchdown. However, he was playing a bad team in the New York Giants, and does not have a tremendous track record as a starter.

There may be some questions lingering about whether he’s elite, but he did lead the Niners to the NFC title last season.

Dabo Swinney: I'm not thinking about Texans job .
Swinney was connected to the Texans job immediately following word of O’Brien’s firing. The speculation made — and still makes — lots of sense.

Even with a football MJ under center, the Texans started 0-4, leading to O’Brien’s surprise dismissal.
