You think he's actually going to have to draft players who can contribute this year? Because that pretty much never happens. I also can't believe a former DB can't find a good DB to save his own life. Rick Smith is a moron.

Looking at this definition of a GM's purpose on a team, if you fire the GM without firing the sucky scouting department, you haven't accomplished a dang thing...
Quote:
In the NFL, the general manager is the highest standing employee in the teamís personnel department.

He answers directly to the owner and has final veto power on all player-related decisions the team makes. Job responsibilities include hiring the head coach, building the remainder of the personnel department staff, coordinating the rubric for scouting college prospects and compiling the team's roster in accordance to the NFLís salary cap.

Clearly, the general manager canít possibly handle all of these tasks personally. He divvies up the labor amongst his other front office staffers, but the general manager ultimately is accountable for all of the teamís personnel decisions.

When a team lands a Hall of Fame quarterback like Peyton Manning in the draft, it wonít be the lead scouts who are recognized and attributed with the home run selection: Itís the general manager.

Conversely, when a team drafts a bust like Ryan Leaf, the scouts who propped him up and recommended the selection are not held to the fire, itís the general manager.

General managers are starting to receive more public attribution for the essential role they play in an NFL team's success, but that praise comes at a price. At the conclusion of the 2012 season, six general managers were fired, and with Carolina firing theirs during the regular season, the total number of axed general mangers in 2012 was seven.

IMO the Texans 2014 OL would have looked like LT-Brown, LG-Brooks, C-Myers/Jones, RG-DeCastro, RT-Quessenberry. That concludes What Ifs.

Texans went on to draft Whitney Mercilus. IF Houston was able to get DeCastro, they would have a perfect line for Zone/Man concepts.

2012 draft flashback: In 2012 Houston tried to trade up w/ Detroit to acquire David DeCastro. The Lions decided they rather draft Riley Reiff

Chris Mortensen reports that Bill O'Brien told him that the media is focusing on the top 3 QBs, but they dont have to draft one in the 1st.

On O'Brien hitching himself to a young QB - "I know that we want effective play out of the position. We will evaluate all of these players..

With the clock ticking, and Rick Smith the only remaining person from the previous regime. What are your thoughts about Mr. Smith, and the likelihood that he could suffer the same fate as Casserly did?

Outside of this message board you do not really hear positive or negative comments about Rick Smith, at least I don't. Having said that, I just had to share this gem from "Mike Stembridge" which I came across while reading posts on FB.

Quote:
So let's just try something here, for a just a few minutes of our precious time, minus over-whelming mountains of emotion and sports media pessimism. Everyone willing? Okay?

The first round is the only one that we truly have absolute control over. After it others can pick in ways we never even imagined. The only round that's completely predictable is the first, and that makes it the most important one. We need a quarterback, despite the emotion, despite the media hype, despite how much we like which ones, or not, we still need a good or great quarterback on our team.

We should prudently pick a quarterback in the first round and then pick up all the pieces in the remaining rounds, because that's definitively our greatest need. We have to take all the seconds, and hand-me-downs, from whatever might even be left over from the pouncing, grabbing, feeding wolves, or other teams, after the first round concludes. Then in our remaining rounds we should act swiftly to build the rest of our team around the quarterback. We get the quarterback, first, so that we can concentrate, breathe a nice sigh of relief, and pounce on whatever's left to feed upon in the remaining ten picks distributed throughout the seven rounds of the draft(our seven standard, or regular, rounds, plus the four compensatory, or extra, picks GM Rick Smith earned us).

We should come away simply stellar, and smelling like a rose, due to the fact that thanks to Texans General Manager Rick Smith's hard work behind the scenes, we still have ten whole picks, subsequent to our first one, in the draft. He did that by controversially shedding older, and higher paid, players, and it was a brilliant strategy that he keenly utilized for the team's, and the fans', great benefit. -Mike Stembridge
Now that is some Rick Smith love right there.

Your thoughts?

Secondly, I disagree that you pick a QB at 1-1 because you've got a need for a starting QB and you have your pick of the litter at that spot. Just because you pick what you hope is the best QB in a draft of sub-standard QB doesn't mean that you're going to be set at QB for any period of time. That sort of thinking didn't work out well for the Raiders (Jamarcus Russell.)

No. You have to pick the best player that you think is going to make the most improvement to your team. If that's a QB, great. If not, great.

When it comes to Rick Smith, I don't really know one way or another how good he is at his job. I don't know which actions rest solely on him and which actions were shared and which actions were someone else. I don't know if he's even going to be our GM after the draft.

And, frankly, I don't care.

I don't care who our coach is. I don't care who our GM is. All I care about is having a dynasty that wins lots and lots of Super Bowls. If Rick Smith can help deliver that, great. If not, get him out of here. If OB can help deliver that, great. If not, get him out of here.

To answer the OP's question, Smith should suffer the same fat as Casserly, but he wont. Smith knows how to play the game. Unfortunately the game he knows how to play has nothing to do with being competent at what should be his job. (Finding the best talent available. See: his track record picking his college position DB's)

You do know that he isn't the actual scout pushing the player right?

I do know he's a backstabber, you know the type of person I want nothing to do with. Maybe he should be doing more scouting, you know like Ozzie/Schneider/Thompson etc.... It seems like he has atleast decided to attend the combine/pro days so there appears to be improvement on Smith's part. Funny how when having your job on the line makes you work harder.

He's not a scout, but he hires the scouts and has a voice in the war room. He apparently has something to do with cap management. (See: Dunta Robinson) The cap was a mess this offseason. You would think that he had a hand in re-signing Schaub/Foster/Cushing. Bottom line for me is the Texans org/fans can and should do much better than Rick Smith as GM.

Where would you rank Smith in relation to the job other GM's do in the NFL.

I always thought Tricky Rick should have been fired right along with Kubes. McNair should have Smith on a very short leash.

You can think that but the reports are the Texans had Peterson targeted and then got jumped on the deal. Then as the story goes they contemplated making the same trade to take Aldon Smith and decided against it and ended up taking Watt. So to the extent you want to guess Wade was influential it sounds like Watt was his 3rd choice.
