The Houston Texans’ roster contains elite talent, but there were plenty loose ends in 2013.
The Houston Texans’ 2013 season ended with a 2-14 record, and the need for a new Head Coach was apparent even before the firing of Gary Kubiak.
The Texans announced that Penn State HC Bill O’Brien will fill the void. Previous to Penn State, O’Brien was an offensive assistant with the New England Patriots. At the end of his New England tenure, he was the offensive coordinator.

The Texans are stacked when it comes to talent, except at the quarterback position. QB Matt Schaub and QB Case Keenum both received playing time, and did not impress.
With the first overall pick, O’Brien can draft any quarterback on the board or he can pick up a veteran signal caller and draft the best player available.
The Kansas City Chiefs were in a similar spot a year ago. KC went 2-14 in 2012 with a talented yet QB-lacking roster. They are currently in the playoffs after posting an 11-5 record.
Houston definitely has the potential to turn the ship around in one offseason, and it starts with O’Brien and a potentially new quarterback.
