If You Could Ask Bill O'Brien One Question And He Had To Answer It Truthfully, What Would It Be?

With the NFL offseason comes plenty of time to ask the big questions in life. If they happen to generate content and discussion on this Houston Texans fan site, all the better! Today we ask what one question you'd ask Bill O'Brien if you knew he had to answer it truthfully.

In the shameful proud tradition of this series of offseason discussion queries, I present the following hypothetical to you, loyal reader.

Imagine a fantastical world where everyone tells the truth. Imagine further that not even NFL coaches are immune from this maxim. Instead of cliches about working hard, vague references to the health of specific players, or nonresponsive answer piled atop nonresponsive answer, these coaches must provide complete and truthful responses.

You, a fan of the Houston Texans, have been granted a brief audience with the head coach of the Houston Texans, Bill O'Brien. You get to ask O'Brien a single question that he must and will answer honestly. No misdirection, no dismissal, no witty snark, no half-truth; your question will be answered in full candor.

What question would you ask? Why?

So many different avenues to go down here, so I won't spoil it by suggesting any specific possibilities. I look forward to reading your answers in the comments below.
