The O'Brien era yielded 3 playoff appearances and 1 win, and that game Pat Ryan started and played. Once O'Brien got in vs. Cleveland the offense looked horrible, and until a brief revitalization under Coslet, his career never again approached that hot first half of 1986. Predictably, that was also the beginning of the dark ages until Parcells comes around. I'll give him his credit for game 16 in 1991 and going throw for throw with Moon the following week in the Astrodome (Moon himself left much to be desired in the playoffs), but I fail to see anything great in any sense of the word (aside from some amazingly thrown deep balls) regarding the O'Brien era.
