JJ Watt was already a loved member of the Texans, but this might get him a statue outside of NRG Stadium.
On Monday, the Houston Texans fired head coach and GM Bill O’Brien after a 0-4 start, but new information appears to suggest that JJ Watt may have gotten that ball rolling a week prior.
Just before the team took on the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, the Houston Texans defensive star is said to have gotten in a heated exchange with the head coach that led to a player revolt.
Bill O'Brien got into an argument with defensive end J.J. Watt and defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver on the practice field along with verbal altercations with other staff members during his final weeks as coach-general manager before being fired, according to league sources

A source tells me that JJ Watt and Bill O’Brien had a heated exchange on the practice field the week of the Steelers game in which JJ called BOB out for his coaching ability. It began a player revolt that ended up getting BOB fired.

This new information explains JJ Watt’s tweet after O’Brien was shown the door:

“We obviously have to do something different. We are 0-4. Whatever we’re doing is not working. Something needs to change. Something needs to be different,” Watt said after the team lost to the Vikings.
The team listened.
