HOUSTON -- Houston Texans?coach Bill OBrien downplayed the significance of reports of tension between him and quarterback Brock Osweiler.CBS Sports reported Sunday that OBrien and Osweiler had a heated exchange last week?after a quarterbacks meeting while reviewing film of the Week 5 loss to the Minnesota Vikings after Osweiler had objections to playcalling.OBrien called the report the biggest non-story of the year and said its a side effect of coaching in an intense environment.Anybody thats been around me knows that I really only know one way to go about it, OBrien said Monday. Thats to work very hard and to do it in a very intense environment. I think thats the type of players we have. So when youre coaching football and playing football, and youre in a competitive environment where everyone is pulling the same rope and everybody is trying to do their very best to win the game, things are going to happen.OBrien took over the playcalling duties from offensive coordinator George Godsey after the Texans were shut out at New England in Week 2.OBrien said it takes time for a coach and his quarterback to develop a style for working together, and he enjoys working with Osweiler.I think you really have to get to know the quarterback to understand what he likes, what hes comfortable with, and also for that quarterback to understand your style, how you do things, OBrien said. And sometimes that takes awhile.What we know about Brock is that hes a very hardworking guy. A very prepared guy. And we enjoy coaching him. Hes learning, and we just were happy to see him be able to help us win that game [Sunday] night.Osweiler was asked about the report after the Texans 26-23 victory over the Indianapolis Colts?on Sunday, and he said his interactions with OBrien and the rest of the coaching staff are nothing out of the norm.I would say the interactions that have occurred between Coach OBrien and myself, or even Coach Godsey and myself for that matter, are nothing out of the norm, Osweiler said. I think everybody wants to win. Everybody, like I said, is putting in a ton of hours and preparation to win each week, so like I said, theres nothing out of the norm.Theres no story there. We are all just working extremely hard to get wins every single week. I love coming to work every single day. I love working with Coach OBrien, Coach Godsey, and they are terrific football coaches.
