The Texans are 0-4, But O’Brien Doesn’t Seem Worried About the Future

The Texans have played the toughest slate in the NFL to date, but for Bill O’Brien and the team they are not worried about sweeping changes despite sitting at 0-4.

O’Brien said Monday via ESPN that he and the staff need to “do a better job coaching,” he can’t concern himself about his job status because he doesn’t “have any control” over that.

“All I can control is what I can control, and I’ve got to do a better job with the team,” O’Brien said Monday.

“That’s obvious. And we’re going to work hard to do that.”

There’s been quite a few mistakes by the Texans in four games, including being the only team in the National Football League not to force a turnover, and have a minus-five turnover differential.

“At the end of the day, it is what it is,” Texans star quarterback DeShaun Watson said.

“We’re 0-4. We’ve just got to keep fighting, keep pushing forward, and that’s it. But for me personally, I’m not going to let it take my joy. I’m going to continue to live life, continue to work my ass off, continue to come in here every day and play football. It is what it is.

“But at the end of the day my joy, my spirit, my smile, my energy, the love of the game is still going to continue to be there. That’s how I see it.”

Maybe this week will be the week that the Texans finally get a break. The club will be in action on Sunday, October 11th in Jacksonville against the Jaguars, who are 1-3.

“Where we are is not good, obviously, but I do think we have good leadership on this team and we have guys that work hard and they believe in each other,” O’Brien said.

“I think they feel like we’re close and we just need to get a win. But no, I’m not worried about the morale. I think we have good guys that understand what we have to do to try to dig ourselves out of it.”
