After the first week of OTA’s under first-year head coach Bill O’Brien, the Houston Texans have pleased their new on-field leader with their work ethic, something which O’Brien takes very importantly.
The Houston Chronicle wrote the following about O’Brien and the Texans’ first week of OTA’s:
“O’Brien acknowledged he’s unsure when the new information will truly click for the Texans. But after informal strength and conditioning sessions, minicamps and three OTAs, the team has remained on schedule during the initial stage of system installations.”
We all know this is going to be a work in process, and I feel this team won’t hit the potential it can have until the ’15 season. Maybe I’m wrong in believing the team will take a year to truly grasp what O’Brien wants from this team, but maybe this new offensive and defensive scheme the Texans are putting into place will catch on quicker than I believe it will.
With that said, I also believe they will be a much improved team this fall.
As I wrote earlier this week, I think the defense has the advantage going into the season as being the “better” unit, but by the end of the season I also believe we’ll see a much improved offensive unit as well.
