By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, there was a heated exchange between Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler and head coach Bill O’Brien this week. Osweiler has struggled with the team as the pressure is mounting to make the offense better. Osweiler signed a huge contract with the team this off-season — and he was supposed to be their quarterback of the future. Last Sunday, his play against the Minnesota Vikings was bad. The quarterback reportedly did not like some of the play calls that O’Brien made during the loss. O’Brien took over the play-calling duties earlier this season. La Canfora says, “Numerous league sources have maintained that the impetus to sign Osweiler to a hefty free agent contract after a brief stint as a starter in Denver began at the ownership/management level, a signing that ratcheted up expectations for the Texans and their offense after a blowout loss last season.” So far, the Texans have only scored 75 points, which is second-worst in the league. Osweiler has a second-worst QB Rating as he has 70.6, which is 31st overall. Texans owner Bob McNair was hopeful that the team could make a long playoff run with the Super Bowl in their city, according to La Canfora. However, no team has ever played in the Super Bowl the year that they hosted the big game. Also, with the additions of Lamar Miller in free agency and drafting wide receivers Braxton Miller and Will Fuller, the Texans were supposed to have a much-improved offense. But the team has lost J.J. Watt for the season, which has hampered the defense. Last season, O’Brien benched former starter Brian Hoyer after three quarters in the season opener. O’Brien is known to be tough on his quarterbacks.
