Default Just wanted to get some opinions on this...(Is Casserly out the door?)

This is what I read on Insider a minute ago....

Quote:
Houston Texans

Charley Casserly: Senior vice president and general manager, football operations
Gary Kubiak: Head coach
Dan Reeves: Consultant
The Texans' front office is obviously in a state of flux. Recent behind-the-scenes reports have surfaced that senior vice president and general manager of football operations Charley Casserly may be on his way out the door after the draft. With that in mind, it remains to be seen how much say he will have on draft day. What is interesting is the emergence of consultant Dan Reeves and how his role has conflicted with Casserly's. Reeves is trusted by owner Bob McNair and has the ear of Houston's ownership.

Although it was perceived that new head coach Gary Kubiak had the full backing of Casserly, that is not the case. Kubiak was actually a McNair and Reeves favorite, fueling speculation that Reeves will take over as the full-time GM after the draft. The Texans have a veteran scouting staff, but because they all have ties to Casserly, they will likely just be reduced to information gatherers. Kubiak, along with Reeves, will play the biggest role in trying to build this franchise up.
Thoughts anyone...

What's the date on your quote? I keep hearing Dan Reeves is gone now. He'll be doing analysis for the NFL Network at the draft.

I just hope Casserly doesn't give us a good bye screw.

Weird. I think it'd probably be a conflict of interest for him to be working the draft if he's under contract with the Texans.

Hasn't McNair emphatically stated that 'Reeves will not be the Texans GM' in every interview where he's been asked that ?

I seriously doubt Kubiak or Mcnair would let Casserly make any picks on his own. Especially given the fact He's likely out the door after the draft. He'll get the people they tell him to get.

Reguardless of whatever else happens, i am pleased with the way mcnair has done the things nesesary to get the people in place to give the texans the best chance to succeed. I'm liking the shakups.I am impressed with Kubiak so far, he's being very proactive.

I can't recall where I read it, but I thought Reeves was back in Atlanta and was no longer under contract with the Texans as a consultant. That's not to say he will not come back in some capacity.

I believe from the very beginning of the franchise, that all the draft picks and free agents have been done by committee. Casserly wasn't that strong in making picks by himself and not over-ruling some of the players that the previous coaching staff wanted. If Casserly was that kind of GM who ruled with an iron fist and the buck stopped with him, Kubiak never would have even interviewed for the job. Shanahan had always warned Kubes about not going to an organization that he would not have some kind of control over personnel as a coach.

Cass very well could have the perfect exit after the draft is over, and go back to the league office. I don't see him staying on, unless he's content with working through the last year of his contract doing whatever McNair and Kubiak tell him to do.

One thing I saw today peaked my interest.
Evidently Floyd Reese is in the last year of his contract as GM of the Titans. I know that they have been in cap hell recently, but he's still a pretty good GM IMO.
I wonder if we could temporarily promote an assistant and take a shot at Reese after his contract is up. At least he is familiar with the area. Plus, he knows that his ownership is 100% a@@clown and ours is pretty good.

IIRC, Reeves hasn't been a consultant for the Texans in months. I suppose this doesn't mean that he should be ruled out as a potential GM...except for his denial that he has no desire to be a GM for any team at this point in his career.

The part I find really interesting is "Although it was perceived that new head coach Gary Kubiak had the full backing of Casserly, that is not the case."

That seems like writing on the wall, IMO. Although it would seem strange to me to keep Casserly through the draft, as opposed to just cleaning house back in January and installing a new FO from the top on down.

I too thought that Kubiak not having the full support of Casserly was saying that Casserly is on his way out.

No real complaints on that taking place....

According to FOXSports.com's John Czarnecki, Charley Casserly reportedly will resign as general manager of the Houston Texans, after the NFL Draft.

If/when we lose Casserly, I hope they look at Scott Pioli, the VP of player personnel with the Patriots during their Superbowl championships. He's probably going to be a GM soon for an NFL team, and dude has an eye for talent.
