Texans owner Bob McNair says Bill O’Brien will remain coach
After what Texans coach Bill O’Brien said was his team’s best game of the year, Texans owner Bob McNair refuted reports that O’Brien would not be the team’s coach next season.
I’m not going to fire him, McNair told reporters following Saturday’s 27-14 wild-card victory over the Raiders at NRG Stadium.
The four-time Pro Bowl linebacker will be a huge addition to Kansas City’s defense. Just two years ago, Houston had 22 sacks, which is just half a sack from the single-season record. His presence will be needed as the Chiefs look to slow down the Steelers’ potent offense.
Although Reid didn’t mention a snap count, there’s a chance Houston will come in only on passing downs. He missed the first 10 weeks of the season and returned to play in five games, but then he missed the last two weeks.
Houston had a huge impact in the team’s first win against the Broncos, as he recorded three sacks (one for a safety), had a pass deflection, forced a fumble and made 10 total tackles. That performance is a perfect display of the kind of disruption Houston can cause.
Last February, Houston had surgery to repair a torn ACL. Even though he made his season debut Nov. 20, his knee began bothering him after a few games, and the team Cheap Jerseys China Paypal took precautions to keep Cheap Jerseys Borntrade him healthy for the playoffs.
