The Houston Texas Need to Finally Fire Bill O'Brien

  The Houston Texas Need to Finally Fire Bill O'Brien After an 0-3 start, the Houston Texans finally need to fire Bill O'Brien.The Texans are now 0-3 after blowing a 21-17 fourth quarter lead this week. That loss followed back-to-back embarrassing showings against the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens. After a massive playoff collapse last season and a tumultuous offseason, there is absolutely no reason for O'Brien to still be the team's head coach -- and there's even less reason for him to remain the franchise's general manager.

Bill O’Brien is sitting on a very warm seat after his team’s 0-4 start, but he’s dismissing any questions about it.

The Houston Texans coach said Monday he has to “do a better job coaching” but insisted that his job security wasn’t on his mind.

“All I can control is what I can control, and I’ve got to do a better job with the team,” O’Brien said, via Sarah Barshop of ESPN. “That’s obvious. And we’re going to work hard to do that.”

Sounds Like Things Are Falling Apart for Bill O'Brien

  Sounds Like Things Are Falling Apart for Bill O'Brien Bill O'Brien is on the hot seat in Houston.Within an article about why the Texans didn't sign free agent safety Earl Thomas (essentially the Texans players didn't want him on the team following Thomas' recent tumultuous exit from the Ravens), CBS Sports writer Jason La Canfora wrote the following:

O’Brien better start getting things turned around quickly. Sunday’s defeat to a lackluster Minnesota Vikings team was the worst loss the Texans have had yet. O’Brien’s double duty as general manager also means he’s on the hook for criticism of the team’s roster building. The DeAndre Hopkins-David Johnson trade looks worse with each passing week, and the team’s inability to protect star quarterback Deshaun Watson is alarming.

Put it this way: It’s never a good sign when the star player you traded is so willing to trash your team publicly. O’Brien’s status is not looking good right now.

Trump's national security adviser pushes back at top general, says troops won't be home by Christmas .
President Trump’s national security adviser on Friday repeated his claim that the United States would cut its troop strength in Afghanistan to 2,500 by early next year, rebutting comments from the nation’s top military officer that this represented “speculation.” In webcast comments to the Aspen Institute, Robert O’Brien added that Trump’s recent tweet about bringing all U.S. troops home from the 19-year-old conflict by Christmas reflected a “desire,” not an actual plan. O’Brien’s remarks are the latest in a series of seemingly contradictory statements about Afghanistan made by senior Trump administration officials during the past few weeks.
