Houston Texans Fire Bill OBrien

It’s official, the Houston Texans fire Bill OBrien after a terrible start. On Sunday, the Houston Texans lost their fourth game in a row, which led a lot of fans to call for the team to replace head coach Bill O’Brien.

Despite the calls for his job, O’Brien acknowledged that he has to “do a better job coaching,” but he added that he can’t concern himself about his job status because he doesn’t “have any control” over that.

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

Even though many fans are complaining that the Texans struggling because of the offseason moves made by O’Brien, the most unpopular of which was his decision to trade Deandre Hopkins for David Johnson and a second round pick, the Texans had the toughest schedule through the first four weeks, playing the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, before losing to the Minnesota Vikings in their last game.

While fans are right about the Hopkins trade, because the team is dead last in rushing, averaging 73.5 yards per game, the Texans have a lot of issues that goes beyond that. They have the worst run defense in the league, giving up 181.8 rushing yards per game, they are also the only team that hasn’t forced a turnover through the first four games and need to do a better job protecting Deshaun Watson.

For his part, Watson said he won’t let the team’s 0-4 start get him down.

“At the end of the day, it is what it is,” Watson said. “We’re 0-4. We’ve just got to keep fighting, keep pushing forward, and that’s it. But for me personally, I’m not going to let it take my joy. I’m going to continue to live life, continue to work my ass off, continue to come in here every day and play football. It is what it is.

The 1992 San Diego Chargers were the last team to start the season 0-4 and make the playoffs.
