Texans will not be getting rid of Bill O’Brien

Jan 14, 2017 at 10:59 AM--


On Friday, Michael Silver of NFL Media speculated that Houston head coach Bill O'Brien could be available to the San Francisco 49ers if the Texans were to lose to the New England Patriots on Saturday.

On Saturday, the Texans killed that rumor. "Texans brass has made it clear to teams during the coaching search process that they won't lose Bill O'Brien, just as they've said publicly they won't fire him (Saturday)," reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

The 49ers are the lone team remaining with a head coach vacancy. While New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan remain the favorites, the team will interview Seattle Seahawks assistant head coach and offensive line coach Tom Cable on Sunday.

"[Cable] is very well regarded," said Rapoport. "(Former Seahawks running back) Marshawn Lynch's guy. He does have a legitimate chance to land this job."

All eyes are on the status of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The team is holding its final practice of the week, and it's the last chance for Garoppolo to see if he can go for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. If not, that would likely mean rookie Trey Lance is getting his first NFL start. "I think today is critical," general manager John Lynch said this morning. "If it's not today, then we go with Trey." After missing Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, multiple reports state that Garoppolo was not on the field as today's practice got underway. That likely means we'll see Lance start in his place on Sunday. Of course,

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been
