Before that game, I would have argued against him being fired. After that debacle, there is no valid argument for keeping him. If we're ok with mediocrity, he's our guy. Why would we be OK with mediocrity? There are too many good, young guys out there that are hungry to make a name for themselves. Mediocre BOB is just that....mediocre.

Deshaun has saved his job for the last two years. ... Fake punt at your 31 after KC just scored??? Panic after KC scored is all I can chalk it up to. ... Leading 24 in the 2nd, shorten the game. ... He made Andy Reed look like a great game manager. ... HOU won't fire him however, they need a GM to work on replacing him.

He won't be fired until next season at the earliest. We have no organizational structure if he is let go. No gm, no hc, no draft picks = no direction and a job that will get poor interest from legit candidates.

He has won consistently but now its time that we start wreaking havoc in the playoffs. Winning the AFC South is no longer good enough. Next season he needs to win the divisional round. I'd like to see another offensive analyst brought in bc our offense was stagnant in the playoffs; and a new DC with Crennel moving back to advisor/strategist role. This team has good enough talent.

Something has to change. We seem to ruin potential hall of fame players careers with not getting them a ring.

Doesn't matter if we make it to the playoffs every year, that is a divisional thing. The TV geeks think our division is a joke.

He is the head coach and calls offensive plays. Needs to be separated into a good head coach to run team and O.C. to call plays.

Just my two cents.....maybe more like 25 cents.

Losing Vrabel really hurt. That was the guy that you can build around. OB wanted to have control of the team as coach and GM. He got that and had a decent amount of success. Yesterday was on the defense. Yes OB had a few bone headed moves but the defense couldn't stop a high school JV team. The offense put up 31 points. That should have been enough to win or at least keep them in the game.

I think the team needs to force him to hire a real offensive coordinator and a new defensive coordinator. OB needs to let go of the play calling and worry about the team as a whole. He isn't a good play caller but in his mind he thinks he is. He is very predictable. Romeo is past his prime. He needs to ride into the sunset. WE have zero pass rush at all. Does Mercelus have a sack at all this year? Then we lock him up with a long contract. Watt comes back after being hurt all year and does his best but he cant beat a double team.

The offensive line improved this year. That was all OB's doing. I will give him credit. Watson hold on to the ball way to long. Many of those sacks were on him. They have to get a second receiver that can stay healthy. The DB's were horrible. It's like we get a good one and they let him go the next year for nothing.

His crappy play calling is what let them down. They were gifted freaking 14 points. The offense didnít do much outside of the first drive. They knew it was going to be tough on defense. You win keeping Mahomes off the field but the BOB offense playoff form.

That’s because this coaching staff has built one of the most impressive offensive lines in the league and he has too much time back there.

You can never achieve greatness by accepting above average. I guess a lot of folks are ok with above average. Me personally, I would rather shoot for the stars and miss than continue on with something that I know deep down will never get me to the ultimate goal. They should take a chance on greatness but they never will. BOB is just good enough to keep his job. The Texans wasted Andre Johnson's career and it looks like they are destined to do the same with Watson and Hopkins. It's a shame. The talent those two possess is remarkable and they deserve better than BOB.

Keep him...if he leaves, we are empty at HC, OC, and GM

But seriously, he needs to hire a new OC and GIVE THE MAN THE REINS and let him call the game. OB either wants to be the GM/HC or the OC. If he can't figure out that he has no business doing it all, then send him down the road. If he wants to remain the HC/OC, hire a GM and let the new GM decide whether OB stays or goes

He should have been fired last year.....
His game management and situational awareness is pathetic....

Down 3 scores with 10 mins left he wanted to punt and Watson looked at him like *** are you thinking......
Fake punt speaks for itself...having to call timeout to decide to kick when you were in absolute control....stupid

The guy is a fraud......

and sadly JJ is a shell of himself now .....

Every team in your division has been to at least 1 AFC Championship since Billy O has been the head coach except the Texans. Last week the Texans won IN SPITE of BOB. They were terrible in the first half, as they have been all year. Fourth and 1 on the Chiefs 14 yard line. You are up 21-0 and you decide to kick a field goal. Way to play not to loose rather than playing to win.


Ya letís keep him, way to settle for mediocrity.

And O’Brien the GM mortgaged the future for a a left tackle this year. So no first round picks the next two years, no third this year, no second round pick next year. They are in bad shape.
