  • Emotional Bill O'Brien after collapse vs. Steelers: 'We can't do that'

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports4 hrs ago

    The Texans, after a hot start on Monday Night Football, unraveled in the second quarter in Pittsburgh and eventually lost 30-23.

    The Texans made a multitude of mistakes in the loss but had an onside kick with a chance to get the ball back and score late in the game.

    Head coach Bill O’Brien wasn't happy when he talked to the media minutes after the final whistle.

    “It was 30-23. It wasn't 50-0,” O’Brien said with a raised voice to reporters in Pittsburgh. “My point is, like, we can't do that. We can't turn the ball over. We can't field the kick, bobble the kick, we can't give up shot plays, we can't have 12 men on the field on third down, give them the first down. We just can't do those things and with all that said, we're an onside kick away. These questions are like we lost 50-0. We lost by a touchdown with all that stuff that we did. We have to improve it. We gotta coach it better and we have to play better.”

    O’Brien mentioned several times how close the Texans were at the end of the game.

    He then made sure everyone knows he doesn’t believe in moral victories in the NFL.

  • Tim Lincecum applying lessons he learned from Barry Zito

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports4 hrs ago

    Tim Lincecum threw an extensive side session on Sunday and declared himself fit, confident and ready for action out of the bullpen. Bochy reiterated he expects to use the two-time Cy Young Award winner, who hasn’t appeared in a game since Sept. 28.

    Lincecum has thrown just 8 1/3 innings since Sept. 1.

    “We need to have him ready because you don't know what's going to happen,” Bochy said. “We played 18 innings in Washington, and he's getting ready to come in the game. He's ready to go, and he's healthy. So all these guys, it's an old adage, all hands on deck, and he's one of them.”

  • Buster Posey reveals how Giants plan to stop Royals' running game

    NBC Sports at NBC on Yahoo Sports4 hrs ago

    Buster Posey won the Johnny Bench Award in college. He met Bench several times. He’s been compared to him from the day he broke into the big leagues – a solid lead chest protector, as expectations go.

    Johnny Bench never won a third World Series ring. By the end of next week, Buster Posey just might pick up a claim check for No. 3.

    What happens when you surpass the standard? What happens when you lead your team to a third World Series in your fifth big league season? What happens when you provide punch in the middle of the order, catch every pitch, bind together three disparate lineups and filter every aspect for a team that is collecting pennants like cocktail stirrers?

    Well perhaps this: A cessation to those unceasing “when will Posey change positions” questions next spring.

    “I enjoy catching,” said Posey, on the eve of Game 1 of the World Series. “I’ve told you guys that for awhile. Especially this time of year, the games are so draining. It’s funny to say it, but that’s what I enjoy. I enjoy the feeling you get at the end of the game, being physically and mentally wiped out.”

    Even after the 18-inning win at Washington?

    “Eh, no,” he said. “No, not so much.”
