Brock Osweiler and Bill O’Brien already fighting over Texans offense

That was fast.

The Houston Texans aren’t off to the hottest of starts this season after spending big cash on guys such as quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller.

Tensions have already seemed to hit notable point between Osweiler and coach Bill O’Brien. According to a note by CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, some within the organization noted a shouting match between the two:

According to the source, Osweiler objected to some play-calling decisions during a routine meeting reviewing the Week 5 loss — O’Brien took over play-calling duties a few weeks into the season — and he and the head coach subsequently had a loud charged interaction after that meeting that did not go unnoticed by others.

Osweiler inked a deal for more than $70 million over the offseason, a deal La Canfora suggests started in the front office and trickled down. Through five games, Osweiler has thrown six touchdowns to seven interceptions and the Texans sit at 3-2.

Given the presence of weapons such as Miller and DeAndre Hopkins, it’s a bit odd Osweiler hasn’t played better. A transition period with a new team is expected, but it’s not a good sign when the new quarterback is already clashing with the head coach.

Long story short, all eyes now rest on the Texans to see how the two sides get along, especially if the struggles continue.
