Romeo Crennel hopes Texans have different attitude, energy

Romeo Crennel became the interim head coach of the Texans when they fired Bill O’Brien this week and he will become the oldest head coach in NFL history when Houston hosts the Jaguars on Sunday.

Crennel said on Wednesday that he’s not thinking about hitting that milestone. He said his focus is on making the 0-4 team better and he knows that is going to take a different approach from the team’s players.

Crennel said he believes the team has the talent to win, but that they aren’t going to be doing anything radically different schematically at this point in the schedule.

“I hope our attitude and energy is different,” Crennel said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I hope our performance is different. You’re not going to come in and put in a new offense or defense overnight.”

Reports out of Houston this week painted a picture of players who had tired of O’Brien’s message, so the change to Crennel may provide some of the energy they need to snap their losing streak and chart a course for better days ahead.

  1. As a fan I was around to see Crennel twice as HC of the Chiefs organization. Don’t hold your breath that attitude or energy will be much different than what you’ve already witnessed or you will endure even more disappointment than you thought possible.

  2. It’s going to be better, might see some smiles for a change, winning is not everything for true fans, turn Watson loose! Way
    To go Cal !

  3. He was interim in KC and Cleveland before getting the job permanently. Romeo will have them playing hard and they’ll hire a new coach in the off-season. The entire league has a ton of respect for coach Crennel.

    Don’t you remember the team won the next three games and he was named HC for the next season? I understand, I try and block it form my memory as well. Nice guy, the only Patriot assistant I’ve ever heard is well liked by everyone, but just not HC material unfortunately.

    Crennel was 4-15 in two stints with KC… Respect? A little. Gratitude? Absolutely none.

  6. If they continue losing it will be a blessing for the Miami Dolphins. They own Houston’s 1st and 2nd round picks along with their own stockpile. Maybe the top pick in the draft, but they have the Jets,Giants and Atlanta in the running.
