Texans owner Bob McNair disputed recent reports that HC Bill O’Brien and GM Rick Smith are in a power struggle and can’t work together.
“I don’t know where those reports came from,” McNair said, via the Houston Chronicle. “They’re totally inaccurate. There’s nothing to it. They work well together. If they disagree on something they come to me. They’ve never come to me.
“I don’t like to have these anonymous sources, people saying something and they don’t know what they’re talking about. That bothers me. I don’t like it.
“We’ve got a good organization. People work hard. They’re going to continue to work hard, and we’re going to get good results.”
