That’s what Mularkey somehow managed to do, as he and his coaching staff fielded a painfully unwatchable offense despite obvious skill-position talent. The Titans are still in the playoff picture, but if they miss out after an 8-4 start, then Mularkey has some questions to answer.
Bill O’Brien, Houston Texans 锟斤拷 Not every team is going to survive losing their franchise QB in early October, but the way the Texans curled up and died after Deshaun Watson tore his ACL is kinda startling. They’ve been 1-7 since then, trotting out Tom Savage and T.J. Yates as metaphorical white flags.
In fairness to O’Brien, he was dealt an awful hand with injuries this season. (The quarterbacks, J.J. Watt, and Whitney Mercilus are just the tip of the iceberg). However, there was reported tension between him and general manager Rick Smith, including concerns about him being the right fit for Watson’s skill set. Combine that with the Texans’ worst record since 2013 锟斤拷 right before O’Brien was hired 锟斤拷 and this could lead to a clash of egos when all is said and done.
O’Brien is sticking around and Rick Smith is taking a leave of absence to help care for his wife, who has breast cancer.

In addition, John Elway hasn’t been shy about throwing his weight around, and he isn’t mincing words Womens Jose Reyes Jersey about his dissatisfaction. Elway should probably get more heat for the quarterback situation (Paxton Lynch, last year’s first-round pick, already looks like a lost cause), but Joseph still has a lot to prove if he survives this year.

Fichtner has a good working relationship with Roethlisberger, which helps with offensive continuity. Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show that he didn’t have issues with Haley, but several reports suggested a growing tension between the two.
