Why O’Brien is exciting for training camp by Deepi Sidhu, Houstontexans.com
"Bill O’Brien says he’s “excited” for this year’s training camp following the team’s offseason program and the rookies’ performance. With less than three weeks remaining until the start of camp, O’Brien won’t have to wait much longer.“You look at a guy like (Will) Fuller, a guy like Braxton Miller, Nick Martin, they’ve been out there every day. Knock on wood—and I hesitate to say this—but they haven’t missed any time,” O’Brien said on Texans Radio. “And my thing with rookies is as long as you’re out there all the time practicing, you’re not having to be in the training room because you have a soft-tissue problem or whatever it is. You’re out there all the time. You’re going to get better because you’re getting all those reps. And so I think that’s been a good sign for that class of guys, so we’re excited.”"
Glad the head coach is excited. The fans sure are!
