Really? It was pretty much a forgone conclusion and assumed months before as mutual agreement.

Really? I don't recall that.

I remember being surprised because I thought he had weathered the firing storm.

Well, when you're right...

I didn't remember that report. Maybe I didn't believe it.

" Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly resigned Wednesday, ending months of speculation that intensified in recent weeks after the team used the No. 1 pick to draft defensive end Mario Williams.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2440274

I thought it was a forgone conclusion that would end with his contract.

I posted a link to a discussion of it in Texan's Talk as well.

That was from "rumormill" though and I guess I didn't give it any credence. I'd never heard of a team waiting until after the draft to fire someone. And as your quote says, it was just speculation.

I thought we all knew that Casserely was gone after the draft. It's why we were all saying that he would have nothing to do with the draft.

The guy was slobbering all over Reggie Bush. However Kubes and company went in another direction.

This is why I always laugh every time Casserely tries to take credit for drafting Mario Williams.

Ahhhh... I know what happened.

I was living in the Dallas area and had only joined the Forums to get more information during the draft.

For the entire existence of the Texans up to that draft, I hadn't been a part of any forums and had just been a lonely fan up in Pennsylvania, out in California, and finally, up in Dallas. I wasn't around the Houston News or any of the websites or pages.

I was just following along on ESPN and Yahoo or whatever. So I was totally out of the information loop at that point. And so, for me, it was a complete surprise.

This is true.

Heard Kiper just say it was the wrong choice, that Reggie Bush was the "world's greatest decoy" and would have made David Carr a better QB.

Good article in ESPN The Magazine about David helping Derek out before his pro-day and during the draft process. David basically says in the article that he wished someone would have shown him how to prepare when he was first drafted, and that he didn't learn that until observing Eli. Now he wants to imbed that in his little brother. Preparation first and foremost. Seems he realizes that was one of his biggest deficiencies.

Two part question:
Part 1: Can't answer this part until you specify a time frame. What's changed since WHEN? Since Dec. when Kubiak was fired? Since Feb. when the season ended? Since the last time we were 2-14 in 2005?

Part 2: Because McNair thinks Smith is doing a good job.

Rick might have flipped the coins but it was Kubiak (and the other coaches) that decided whether to call heads or tails.

I don't think much has changed since Kubiak's firing. Like Kubiak, I believe that BOB has final say on the 53 man roster and like with Kubiak, Rick Smith is there to make sure that McNair's and BOB's requests and demands are carried out to their fullest.
