Last quote by Bill O'Brien

He took a pretty good shot. He's a tough guy ... Very tough guy, especially for the way he's built. He's one of our better receivers when it comes to blocking. He does a lot of different things for us that people probably don't even notice. But he's slightly built.feedback

Bill O'Brien quotes

Oct 20 2017

James has an incredible ability to focus what really matters. What mattered most when he took that job was football and the kids in that locker room. The person who took that job needed to be someone who could filter out the noise. That job in that situation came with a lot of it, and that was understandable considering everything everyone there went through.feedback

Oct 16 2017

I'm not even sure how happy he is right now. I know he's happy the team won, but interception, those types of things, I know he'll be in here [Monday] early trying to get better. That's the type of mentality he has.feedback

Oct 02 2017

He can really throw the football. He's a very accurate passer. ... He can really sling it, and he's a very smart runner.feedback

Oct 01 2017

He sees the game pretty well. He's seeing a lot of different things: third-down blitzes for the first time, red-area things for the first time. I think he's making smart decisions.feedback

Oct 01 2017

He really can throw the football. He's a very accurate passer. He's got big hands, he can really sling it. He's a very smart runner. Runner is not all about speed. It's about instincts and understanding how plays are being blocked and understanding the defense that you're seeing to kind of weave your way through.feedback

Sep 29 2017

[With] leadership in football, you have to be a good player. You don't really have to say anything if you're that good of a player. I think his leadership skills are really good, especially for a young player. He takes command in the huddle, but I think it's going to continue to grow, obviously, as he keeps playing.feedback

Sep 14 2017

You lose two starters, but you know, I thought other guys stepped up and made plays. It was good to see those guys step up.feedback

Sep 14 2017

The ball will be thrown in his direction quite a bit.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - Twitter

There's really not a lot of words that can describe what he's done. And that thing that's really pretty neat about him is he's adamant about that money going towards the people that need it. And I think he's got a lot of great ideas for that money and I think he's actually putting it into action right now.feedback

Aug 10 2017

Something that's impressed me from really the time that I met him is really his overall poise. He's a very poised guy. He plays the game in a calm way. Obviously, nothing's too big for him. He's been in big games. For his first NFL game, I'm sure he was slightly nervous, but it didn't show.feedback

Aug 10 2017

I thought Tom played the game pretty resiliently too last night. He came back from a couple tough series as an offense and was able on the third series to lead us to a touchdown. I thought both of those guys had their moments where they were really playing well. To me, it was typical first preseason game. There was some good, some not-so-good. A lot to build on.feedback

Aug 10 2017

The head coach has previously said the toughest part for Watson in his transition from college to the NFL will be learning the Texans' complex playbook and becoming familiar with the scheme. There's a lot to build on. I mean, there's a lot to correct. He knows that. I'd say he was about 50-50 on some of the schemes we run, right or wrong. He was right 50 percent of the time. He was wrong 50 percent of the time. And that's to be expected with a rookie. But I think his overall poise and demeanor and the way he sees the game has always been something that's pretty impressive to me.feedback

Aug 08 2017

The other kid is doing a good job, though. He really has picked up the offense really well and kind of exceeded my expectations, as far as being able to pick up things that we do. He's a really diligent worker. He's got a good demeanor, and he's had a good camp, too. So it's a good position.feedback

Aug 08 2017

I tell you what. I'd love to sit down with all the scouts that said he had a bad arm or he was inaccurate or whatever.feedback

Aug 08 2017

He's got a good arm. He's very accurate. Just like with any rookie, I think the biggest thing is, everything that he's seeing, especially on third down and in the red area, is for the first time. So turnovers become a key, just like it is for any rookie quarterback. And lately, he's done a very good job of taking care of the ball. I think that's going to be a big thing for him as he moves forward this year and gets into these preseason games -- making good decisions with the ball. But he's got a lot of great qualities.feedback

Aug 08 2017

He's a smart guy. He's got good command. He's been in our offense now for four years, got a really good arm, great arm talent. Really has good command of what we're doing. And those games that he came in at the end of [last] year, he managed the game well. Cincinnati, we had to win that game to win the division, and he helped us win it. So he's done a good job in the four years he's been here, and we're giving him the shot. He's been here for four years.feedback

Aug 08 2017

Hopefully we play pretty well, but it's the first preseason game. I just want them to come out and play well, play clean -- no penalties, no turnovers. Try to play a clean game the first time out. That's what I want.feedback

Aug 08 2017

From what I see, I think it's really good chemistry. There's a lot of encouragement, a lot of give-and-take in the room, definitely some senses of humor in the room. All three of them. I wouldn't say they're the funniest guys in the world, but they have their moments. They definitely all three get along and they root for each other when they're in there. It's competitive, obviously, but they want the offense to do well. They want their buddy to go in there and do well.feedback

Aug 08 2017

Those guys are competitive. They're both good. I think that that whole room is very talented. ... They're making each other better. There's no doubt about it. Tom [Savage] and Brandon [Weeden] have done a really good job with Deshaun [Watson], of kind of giving him their own insight into the offense, which is good to see.feedback

Aug 01 2017

Deshaun, for a rookie, is really way ahead of any rookie quarterback I've been around. [He] went out there and made some plays, which was good to see.feedback

Aug 01 2017

[It's] very early, but he's good. He's a good, smart guy who works hard. Good communicator. Loves football. In here all the time. Gets his food, goes up to the meeting room, watches the tape on his own -- so does Tom [Savage], but for a young player, Deshaun's a mature guy.feedback

Jul 29 2017

He's a dynamic player. He can make great catches. He's got incredible hands. He can jump. He knows our system, we can move him around a lot.feedback

Jul 22 2017

We studied every game that he played. There were several things that were put on his plate in his career. I can tell you just from watching film, he had to do several things, whether it was signaling a formation to wide receivers or changing protection at the line of scrimmage or going from one play to the next.feedback

Jul 22 2017

It's like learning a new language.feedback

Jun 18 2017

The only things missing are the Persian rugs and the artwork.feedback

Jun 18 2017

Nothing was off-the-shelf. With Jack Welch, everything was custom and the operation was five star, spot on. It's such a different vibe with the kids all here.feedback

Mar 28 2017

It's an ever-evolving deal. We have a strong defense coming back. But we have to fill some areas there, too. … We've got a lot of talent on offense. We've got talent on special teams. We've got to continue to add to it. And we have to continue to coach it up. That's what we're looking to do. But that's the challenge of the NFL. We're all looking forward to it. We don't really care what the perception is on the outside. No disrespect meant by that at all. We just care about coaching our guys and making sure that they're getting better every day. That's what the offseason program is about.feedback

Mar 28 2017

There's a lot of guys in that room that will be in that room on that team meeting on April 17 that have been with us going on four years now. And they know how we coach. We know how they play. We're excited about those guys and that's what we're focused on.feedback

Mar 06 2017

In our organization, I think every single day we're looking to do something to improve. Those ideas sometimes change based on the landscape. So, to say, Am I looking to add?' or, Are we looking to add a quarterback in free agency?' my experience in this league is we don't even know who's out there in free agency yet because some of these guys sign back with their teams.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Competition is open with every position on our team, obviously with the exception of a few. But the majority of positions on our team -- that's what we've based our program on from the day we walked in here. We've based our program on competition and competing in practice. The depth chart changes with us. I think you guys have seen that whether it's quarterback or any other position. So that's what our team is based on. That's what our coaching staff believes in. Competition will always be a part of our program here.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Mr. McNair is the boss. We're going to do what he wants us to do. We're early in the draft process, especially as it relates to me. I've just really started looking at these guys.feedback

Mar 02 2017

When you look at our offense, there's a lot of areas that need to improve. It's not just one position. It's protection. It's run-blocking. It's route-running, it's throwing the ball. All those things, it all goes together. It's not just one thing. We're working hard to get it better. That's what the offseason is all about.feedback

Jan 15 2017

I'm just tired of answering it. You can't even have a sense of humor about it. You have a sense of humor about it, people run with that.feedback

Jan 15 2017

That was part of our game plan, to get in there and try to affect him with the rush. I thought our guys did a great job of that.feedback

Jan 03 2017

I thought Brock did some really good things on Sunday with his teammates and almost brought us all the way back. Did a nice job and we have a lot of confidence in him that he's going to go out there and play well on Saturday.feedback

Jan 03 2017

Brien likes what he's seen from Osweiler since his benching and is eager to see what he can do on Saturday. He's done a good job. He's been a pro. He really hasn't changed his routine at all. He's been in here studying like he's the starter. He's in here this morning getting ready ... he feels good and I think he's ready to go.feedback

Jan 03 2017

I'm sure that in some ways it's painful to go through that, but in some ways the backup position may have helped him.feedback

Dec 25 2016

Maybe his stats don't always look the greatest, but he's a very tough runner. And what I think happens is more you use him, he tends to wear the defense out after a while.feedback

Dec 18 2016

We're always going to make decisions in the best interest of the team. We'll regroup here tonight. We've got a short week and we'll make decisions on anybody, any starter that we have. We make decisions on that every week.feedback

Dec 18 2016

I heard him say in an interview after practice one of the days this week: 'I'm a good football player'. And you know what? He's (darn) right about that.feedback

Dec 18 2016

We don't make decisions on how much a guy gets paid. We make decisions on what's the best way to win a game. That was the decision we made today and I thought today, it worked out OK.feedback

Nov 22 2016

And so we went for it. Thought we had it, looked like it was clear that we had it, so I challenged it and they said we didn't have it. They said the call on the field stands, so I don't know.feedback

Oct 25 2016 - Snapchat

He's got good poise, tough environment. We all have to do better. Everyone has got to do better.feedback

Oct 17 2016

We felt like he was the guy throughout the game that was probably playing the best on offense so at halftime we said, Look, we've got to keep finding ways to get this guy the ball.feedback

Sep 23 2016

Losing is horrible. I mean it's absolutely horrible. There is nothing really in my mind that comes out good, but what I will say is that there is a resilient team in that locker room. These guys work hard. ...There is a lot of season left. We haven't even played a division game.feedback
