Sunday, after the Houston Texans wrapped up training camp, Bill O'Brien took questions from the media. While monitoring Twitter for camp updates, I noticed a few media members tweet the following
When I first seen this, I said "WTF, has the Houston Sun cooked a few brain cells out there". Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallet have not accomplished anything worth being proud of. That's not being mean, that's just the truth and I'm more surprised there was not a follow up question
I am beginning to notice Bill O'Brien seems to get very defensive about mediocre ass quarterbacks dating back to the 2014 season. It's almost like O'Brien is telling the media "hey, you can control the discussion in Houston, talk my quarterbacks up instead of being objective". What's not said in the Tweets, O'Brien also singled out the media, the people who are supposed to be the conduit to the fans. Media should be objective and not marching to the drums of a head coach. However, maybe Bill should read and listen a little better because most of the local media has ordained Hoyer as the starter.
Usually, I try to get context of quotes, but in this case, I can't see any football reason I should be proud of them for doing a job. Last week, I found out that Hoyer support the troops monetarily and I'm happy with that being a Veteran but not for nothing he did on the field.
We are living in a world where words like heroic, brave, courage and proud is being throwed around way to loosely. What's next, we should be proud of Clowney?
Hey Billy, I;m also pissed, you want to know what pisses me off, NO QUARTERBACK since Houston's inception I can truly believe in.
