Default Casserly to NFL !

This is one of the best tricks in the book.. help the person you want gone get a job somewhere else.

I hope he gets the job!

Please give him the job...Get him the hell out of here...Wait then the NFL would fall and crash most likely just like our franchise did and we will have to hire someone smart to re-build it so looks like our only choice is to give him a free 1 way ticket to antartica, take his wallet and cell phone, and leave him there.

Unlikely, but possible

We could be the worst team and be totally over the salary cap having to release players.

If Casserly leaves, I'm hoping Kubiak doesn't become head coach/general manager. They hardly ever work out. Here's

Dream Scenario #1:

Casserly gets the job and best of luck to him.
Mike Holmgren announces this is his final year in Seattle and will not coach any longer. He says that he would like to be a GM though (he has said this, contemplating whether this is his final year though) and he becomes GM for the Texans. We win a Super Bowl(s).

Dream Scenario #2:

Casserly gets the job and best of luck to him.
Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw gang up on Jimmy Johnson and he throws a temper tantrum on air and is fired/quits. He becomes GM of the Texans. We win a Super Bowl(s).

Dream Scenario #3:

Casserly does not take the job. Casserly suddenly becomes a very good GM. We win a Super Bowl(s).

Could be in the running to break Tampa Bay's losing streak.

What's funny is he could be a person considered for the Commish. Don't laugh, it could happen.

Look at the players we have signed this offseason. IMO this offseason has been better than the last 4 offseasons combined as far as signing free agents. Kubes comes in and tells the front office who he wants and they go out and sign most of them. This tells me that maybe the front office has been doing what the Capers regime wanted in the last 4 seasons as far as trades, releases, and free agents. Maybe I am wrong.

If so, it tells me that Casserly didn't do his job on as a Manager. His role is to be a GM, not just to be a gofer for the coach to execute trades, releases, and free agents. A good GM is a decision role.

ok.. we are just the worst team with several overpaid players that are not capable of being starters on other teams; but under the salary cap. And we are going through yet another 'rebuilding' year after a consective losing seasons.

I'm not saying he should be a gopher, but the coaches should have SOME input as far as the players go.

It would seem that he is being given a more dignified way of leaving. No you're fired or we're going in a new direction. Maybe that has happened w/ Reaves being introduced as a "consultant".

This is almost turning out like WWE. Being able to call what is going happen b/c it's scripted. Let's wait and see.

That was my response to it cant get much worse... That would be worse than a 2-14 year, having another dismal record and being so far over the cap, we had to cut some players.

I sure wouldn't want this option. Holmgren has proved that he's not a capable GM. The hawks didn't do ANYTHING until he was replaced as GM. If the Texans are in the market for a GM, I think they can do alot better than Holmgren.

They don't need a big name guy to be GM, they need a good guy. Go get a guy who's associated with the Patriots, Steelers, or another team that knows what they're doing. The best option would be to promote a guy from another team who's hungry for success on their own.
