Bill O’Brien Turned into a heated exchange with Houston Texans Celebrity J.J. Watt Through a Current Clinic, ESPN has Verified.
The episode, which also contained defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver, happened at the week leading up to the winless Texans’ Week 3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, based on ESPN and several accounts.
Resources confirmed to ESPN that”a verbal blowup at the clinic” happened two weeks before, with one source telling ESPN’s Dianna Russini the episode was O’Brien”missing the group.”
“I am not going to speak about what happened in the practice or what discussions were had or anything it could be,” Watt said. “The problem is exactly what the problem is and we… now have a fresh beginning and we all had a fantastic practice today and we are awaiting Jacksonville.
Added Watt: “If you are 0-4, obviously matters will need to modify. I mean it was not working. I love and respect what we’d. We won four division titles in six years with Bill and I love that then, but of course this season, we are 0-4 and things were not working. Whenever you have the gift that we have, especially in the position in this team, we can not be 0-4.”
“The 1 thing I will say about Bill O’Brien is that he always stood up to his players,” Watt said.” … Surely, he strove to do anything possible to encourage his players and offer his players the best service. And I genuinely feel he did what he thought was best for this football team. So I do not have ill will whatsoever.”
Quarterback Deshaun Watson explained what occurred to O’Brien was the”company” of this league.
“I have the [upmost] admiration for Coach O’Brien for me Houston, instructing me exactly what he taught me that the four decades I have been here,” Watson explained. “The subject, just everything for an individual, becoming ready for football. He did lots of things to allow me to get two Pro Bowls and win the AFC South annually I’ve played with a complete calendar year. I have all of the respect for the things, but that is just the way the company goes.”
