Option 3:  A mix of both Option 1 and 2

I’m going to be pretty brief with this one because the title of Option 3 is pretty self explanatory.

If the Houston Texans choose Option 3, then they can go either way. If the Texans choose Option 2 but are still losing, then they may decide to shift more towards an Option 1 approach early, and still have time to get some advantages that it provides for the remainder of the season.

Meanwhile, if it turns out that the Texans continue to win, then maybe they should stick to Option 2 and see how far they can go. They don’t have to necessarily pick one option, as they could blend the two.

It could even turn out such that they try Option 1 and see that everything is working, so they shift into Option 2 with what was learned and move forward. There matter of fact is the Texans need to improve either for the future or for the current team, because what happened the first four weeks didn’t work.

My Final Thoughts

As much as I hated and questioned Bill O’Brien’s time in Houston, I wish him the best going forward. He still deeply cared about the Houston Texans while working with the team.

Though I continued to promote the dislike for O’Brien throughout the city while I was mentioning everything that went wrong under his time, I always failed to point out the fact that he really wanted to do what was in the best interest of the team, even though it never showed.

I hope O’Brien puts himself in the best position moving forward. I’m rooting for him, but at the same time moving on from the Houston Texans was the best option for everybody involved.
