Houston Texans fans are close to walking away forever. A McCown hire could push them over the edge.
The Houston Texans fans base is near implosion with the talk about the Texans interviewing Josh McCown a second time and potentially being the next head coach of the franchise. McCown has no coaching experience at any level. This hire, were it to happen, could possibly be the straw that breaks the camel’s back with the fans.
After hiring a relatively unknown coach in David Cully last year only to fire him and hire someone with no experience a year later could send the fans over the edge and end the love-hate relationship between the Texans and their fans.
Is it an Interview, or fact-finding mission for the Houston Texans?
Josh McCown, Pep Hamilton and Kevin O’Connell were together in Cleveland in 2015. Who better to get information about a coach than a player that you already have a good relationship with who has been with that coach?
So, general manager Nick Caserio brings McCown in, gets information on O’Connell (another head coach candidate) and talks possible quarterback coach or offensive assistant position. It’s not as far-fetched of an idea as you might think. Perhaps fans need to give Caserio a little more credit than they are currently giving him.
Texans: Perhaps there’s something to this that the fans aren’t seeing
There is no doubt that the average fans head is about to explode with the McCown interviews. But are the fans reading Caserio wrong? Are these interviews about McCown for head coach, or possibly about McCown for a different job within the organization?
Could a major part of the conversation be about O’Connell and not McCown?? There’s something you may not know. O’Connell was McCown’s quarterback coach in ’15 when they were both in Cleveland, so there is a link between the two that may come into play.
It’s so easy to speculate, both good and bad.
Maybe this is all a waste of time and Caserio and Jack Easterby are trying to be smarter than everyone else and find that diamond in the rough that no one sees. Maybe the McNair ownership doesn’t care about winning and have tied Caserio’s hands financially with the head coaching hire and Caserio has no other choice but to hire someone less qualified?
We can speculate that all day, but wouldn’t it be nice to find out that the Texans have a GM that is really on his game? Wouldn’t it be nice to know the Texans have a GM who is two steps ahead of us and will never let us know what in his mind until it happens?
The fear of an insane hire is legitimate, but let’s not lose the tiny hope that something good can still happen with the head coach search of 2022.
