Bill OBrien Reportedly Prepared to Leave Texans If GM Rick Smith Stays

Bill OBrien Reportedly Prepared to Leave Texans If GM Rick Smith Stays
bill-obrien-reportedly-prepared-to-leave-texans-if-gm-rick-smith-stays

O'Brien is prepared to broach the subject when he and Smith meet with McNair on Monday.

10. Dynamo make the playoffs.

Some may forget, and they went a lot further than most believed they would, but we do have a professional soccer team in Houston. They are young and dynamic, but lacked experience and a little talent. They will be a dangerous team in the MLS in the coming seasons., bowing out in the second round of the playoffs. In many ways, this team reminds me of the Astros in 2015. They were close to being good

9. Rockets with NBA's best record and a 14-game winning streak.

 the news from their camp beginning in the offseason has largely overshadowed it. And while they did manage the league's best record for a time,There is nary a mention of the Rockets postseason struggles because, quite frankly, it's an impressive feat for a team many believed would struggle with two "ball dominant" All-Stars in the backcourt., the 14-game winning streak didn't distance them nearly as much as they would have liked. Still

8. Texans struggle with injury problems.

 they promptly went out and lost two of their three best defenders on the same day in J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus. Then came the devastating loss of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson (more on him in a second),When it rains,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/stephen-anderson-jersey-authentic]Womens Stephen Anderson Jersey[/url], it pours—literally for the city and metaphorically for the Texans. With a defense expected to be one of the NFL's best, concussions for seemingly everyone on the roster (most notably their tight ends and Tom Savage) and Will Fuller's series of injury problems. Only a couple of the Texans front-line starters have survived. The season has not., a torn tendon for rookie running back D'Onta Foreman

6. Chris Paul is acquired by the Rockets.

 one of the league's best backcourts. Paul went 14 games before the team lost with him in the lineup.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jeff-allen-jersey-authentic]Womens Jeff Allen Jersey[/url],It was no secret in NBA circles that Chris Paul wanted to pair with James Harden in Houston. The deal that brought him here (which cost the team fan favorite Patrick Beverley) was praised by some but decried by others as a chemistry experiment that would blow up in the team's face. The opposite was true mainly because Paul chose to come here and Harden really wanted it to happen. The ball dominant guards have been nothing short of incredible on the floor

7. Justin Verlander is acquired by the Astros.

There's cutting it close and then there is what happened when the Astros traded for ace pitcher Justin Verlander. The Astros landed Verlander with only two seconds remaining on the final trading deadline of the season. He went on to have one of the most dominant closes to the season in Astro history and a ridiculous postseason that culminated in a title. We literally love this story.

5. Texans find their QB in Deshaun Watson.

 and that includes the selection of Mario Williams over local favorite Vince Young. The Texans traded their first- and second-round picks in 2018 (a slight bummer considering how good they would be) to acquire the Clemson QB,Not since the first pick in the first Texans draft has something been so anticipated, but no one can deny Watson is the future at the QB spot for the Texans. It only took them 15 years to find him.,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/andre-hal-jersey-authentic]Womens Andre Hal Jersey[/url], who came in after one half of football and proceeded to wreck all kinds of NFL rookie records. His season was cut short by a torn ACL he suffered in practice

4. Tillman Fertitta buys the Rockets.

In some years, when Les Alexander decided to sell, this might make the No. 1 spot on the list. Teams change hands so rarely in sports,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Womens Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url], it is big news when one happens in your city. It's even bigger news when the man who had shepherded the team the last quarter century was arguably the best owner in the city's history. But, someone who has deep enough pockets to keep the Rockets competitive for a long time., restaurateur and entrepreneur Fertitta seemed the obvious choice from the outset. In what was one of the fastest sales in history,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Womens C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url], Fertitta landed a home-town team for his portfolio and his family who will likely inherit the team in years to come. For the city, it's a win as a native son takes the reins

3. Jose Altuve wins AL MVP award.

 it was a year of dominance at the plate and wizardry in the field. Despite a herculean effort by stellar Yankee rookie Aaron Judge,For only the second time in team history, the Astros had an MVP. The first was Jeff Bagwell in the strike-shortened 1994 season. For Altuve,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/shane-lechler-jersey-authentic]Authentic Shane Lechler Jersey[/url], and he's only 27., Altuve was a near unanimous choice as the American League MVP. Even one more year like he has had over the last four and he could cement himself as the greatest player ever to don an Astros uniform

2. J.J. Watt raises $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief.

It was most definitely a year of firsts and that includes a humanitarian story making one of the top two spots on this list. The effects of Hurricane Harvey and the devastating floods that inundated the city this summer spared no one. Every Houstonian in one way or another dealt with the impacts and nearly all of them stepped up. That included the Texans J.J. Watt, viral campaign that lead to Watt along with Altuve being named Sports Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year. It was well deserved., whose simple online fundraising effort turned into a $37 million haul for flood relief. It was an amazing

1. Houston Astros win the World Series.

 they proved their mettle against three of the most storied franchises in baseball in the postseason. That included one of the most frenetic and exciting World Series in baseball history against the Dodgers. Game 5 alone may be the greatest game ever played. It was the team's first title and it was filled with guys everyone wanted to root for...and they are all coming back next season.,This could be the top sports story in the history of Houston sports. Not only were the Astros a dominant team throughout the year

There were tears in Chuck Pagano's eyes as he left the field at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday for the final time as head coach of the Colts.

 the team announced it is parting ways with the man who has served as its leader for the past six years.,Less than two hours after Indianapolis ended the season with a 22-13 victory against the Texans

 but his tone still carried the feel of a farewell address.,Pagano spoke to the media before news of his firing broke

And the overwhelming emotion was gratitude — beginning with owner Jim Irsay who awarded Pagano a game ball in an emotional postgame locker room.

 Pagano didn't hesitate.,Asked to sum up his six seasons in Indianapolis

" he said.,"Blessed beyond measure

The game with Houston (4-12) simply was an appetizer for the drama that followed.

 and equally immortal kicker Adam Vinatieri connected on a pair of fourth-quarter field goals to seal a victory that snapped a six-game losing streak.,Ageless running back Frank Gore rushed for 100 yards

Indianapolis (4-12) avoided a last-place finish in the AFC South and ensured it will pick third in April's NFL draft.

 it sent off an embattled coach with one final win.,Beyond that

 and the two shared a solid embrace. Brissett,As Pagano finished his session with the media, quarterback Jacoby Brissett entered the room, made it clear how much Pagano meant to him., who arrived in a trade with the Patriots on Sept. 2 and unexpectedly started 15 games in his second professional season

 that’s what made everybody in this locker room come to work and come to play how we play. You all see,"You don’t want to hear that (firing rumors) about somebody that I personally look up to or somebody that I know I would run through a wall for," Brissett said. "Like I said, and that’s a real man there.", no team ever (pummels) us. He drove the ship

Pagano's relationship with the fan base is more complex.

He was at the center of one of the league's most inspirational stories in 2012 when his battle with leukemia served as the impetus for a surprising 11-5 season and a wild-card playoff berth.

 then the Colts' offensive coordinator,Pagano was diagnosed with the disease during an early bye week with Indianapolis sitting at 1-2. Interim coach Bruce Arians, vowed the team would make the playoffs to extend the season long enough for the head coach to return.

The fairy tale began with a wild second-half comeback the next week against Green Bay, and Indianapolis clinched the unlikely playoff berth — on the heels of a 2-14 season that left the franchise with the No. 1 overall draft pick — with a victory in Kansas City days before Pagano officially returned to the job on Christmas Eve.

His first game back on the sideline also came at home against the Texans,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jeff-allen-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jeff Allen Jersey[/url], five years before he'd coach his final game on the same field against the same opponent.

"This community," Pagano said. "All that we've been through, they're unbelievable,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/andre-hal-jersey-authentic]Authentic Andre Hal Jersey[/url], the fans, they brought me through the fire back in 2012. I got great love and respect for our fans, for this community and what they've done for me and my family. I'm in debt of gratitude. We'll always be Hoosiers no matter what happens."

The Colts followed up that remarkable season with back-to-back AFC South championships and reached the AFC Championship Game following the 2014 season.

But this fairy tale had no happy ending.

Quarterback Andrew Luck was injured in the third game of the 2015 season,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Authentic Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url], and Indianapolis limped to 8-8 records in each of the next two seasons.

With Luck on the shelf this year for the entire campaign while recovering from right shoulder surgery, the bottom fell out.

A string of second-half collapses kept the team out of the playoff race, and Sunday's decision to fire Pagano has long felt inevitable.

" wide receiver T.Y. Hilton said. "He's a players' coach,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Authentic C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url],"We always fight for him,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/kareem-jackson-jersey-authentic]Womens Kareem Jackson Jersey[/url], and you dream of having a coach like that. He's special."

In Pagano's final game, the Colts trailed 13-7 at the half before flipping the season-long script by scoring 15 unanswered points after intermission.

Rookie running back Marlon Mack's 1-yard touchdown run on which he moved the pile over the final one-and-a-half feet — two plays after a vicious stiff-arm to Houston defensive end Jadaveon Clowney put the Colts near the goal line — gave Indianapolis a 14-13 lead with 6:51 to play in the third quarter.

Hassan Ridgeway sacked Houston quarterback T.J. Yates in the end zone for a safety early in the fourth quarter, and Vinatieri added field goals from 54 and 22 yards out to provide the final margin.

Indianapolis' lone first-half points came on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Brissett to tight end Jack Doyle.

" Brissett said. "(Pagano) stressed that last night. It was no win for this person or that person,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/kareem-jackson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Kareem Jackson Jersey[/url],"(The win) was for us, or let's do this so this person can get recognition. It was just we want to win for us and end the season off on the right note."

 wide receiver Donte Moncrief,The Colts now enter a long offseason with several key free-agent decisions to be made. Chief among the players scheduled to reach the open market in March are Gore and Vinatieri. Breakout cornerback Rashaan Melvin, safety Darius Butler and offensive lineman Jack Mewhort are among the other key contributors waiting for new deals.
