If you haven’t downloaded the Vine app for your smartphone then you are missing out on content that straddles the line of funny and weird in a collection of six second videos and the Houston Texans may have just trumped any other Vine ever created with this creation.
Making reference to the DJ Snake and Lil Jon collaboration “Turn Down for What” we see first-year head coach Bill O’Brien at the podium and hilarity ensues with a cameo from J.J. Watt in a mashup that should result in the Texans social media department receiving extensions and raises.
If you don’t crack a smile at the very least at this six seconds of genius, then I truly feel for you and hope you have a better day, because this is why Vine was created. It also screams that this is the dead of the offseason and there just isn’t much in the way of hard-hitting news to write about, so you’re going to get creative videos like this in the interim until NFL teams arrive for training camp in July.
Having said that, I can’t wait to see what O’Brien can do with this Texans team that entered last season as a potential Super Bowl participant from the AFC but stumbled to a horrendous 2013 season that was chock full of shoddy quarterback play and inconsistent play across the field, with the exception of Watt, there was not much in the way of superlatives for the lost season.
As a result, the Texans had the No. 1 pick and took Jadeveon Clowney to pair with Watt and give the team arguably the best pair of defensive linemen in the AFC, if not the entire NFL.
O’Brien has a reputation as a quarterback guru so it will be fascinating to see what he can do with the talent on the talent on the roster, including Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates, Case Keenum and fourth round draft pick Tom Savage. Keenum or Yates figures to be the odd man out in the quarterback shuffle that will take place in training camp.
