Bill O'Brien: Texans "have to change" offensively

Changes are coming to the Houston Texans offense.

In a Texans radio interview with Marc Vandermeer and John Harris from Indianapolis, head coach Bill O'Brien said there will be a difference in 2017.

"We really have to change the way we do things offensively," O'Brien said. "I'm not going to get into the details of that. We need to get going offensively and everybody in Houston knows that. We know that. That's what we're working hard to get done."

The Texans went 9-7 in 2016 and won their second straight AFC South title. But O'Brien and offensive coordinator George Godsey mutually parted ways after the season. The head coach will call the plays as offensive coordinator this season, and Sean Ryan slid over from wide receivers coach to quarterbacks coach. 

A key focus in the coming season will be improving ball security.

"You can't turn it over," O'Brien said. "The turnovers were terrible. Whether it was an interception or a fumble, those thing turned games."

The Texans turned the ball over 24 times last season.

The interview, which can be heard at 6 p.m. CT on SportsRadio 610/HoustonTexans.com/Houston Texans Mobile App, lasted 11 minutes and was recorded in the Indianapolis Convention Center.
