Default Team gives Casserly farewell...

Texans | Team gives Casserly a fond farewell
Sun, 4 Jun 2006 07:23:53 -0700

Ron Borges, of the Boston Globe, reports former Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly's last day with the Texans was Wednesday, May 31, and he attended the team's OTAs daily until he left. On the final day, owner Bob McNair and new head coach Gary Kubiak asked Casserly to come to the practice field. When they brought him out, Kubiak told the players that none of them would be in Houston if not for Casserly. After receiving a strong ovation, Casserly was asked to address the team, something he said he'd never done in 30 years in the NFL.

Thank you for the post. I was wondering myself why there is no news at all about Casserly's last day. Regardless of how your opinion about him, it is nice to hear that the owner and the headcoach show appreciation. What a class act from them. What ashamed of our local media, that we, as the fan, have to get it from somewhere else.

McClain told of this on his Friday radio spot. Casserly got a huge ovation after his remarks to the team. Don't know why this didn't make the Chronic.

Our Houston Chronicle sports writers have yet to realize that TEXAN fans are hungry for news of any kind about our team!! They have yet to convince me they are PRO TEXAN!! When they do, I will renew my subscription!! Until then, I will just continue to depend on my fellow MB buddies to provide info on my team!!

So from what I've heard, Casserly has become the favorite, if not the lock, for the VP position he's been going after.

Agree... I feel the same way. That is the only reason why I start looking for any Texans news from this board since 5 months ago. And my favourite Texans sport writer in Chronic now is Texanschick... love her insider report.

I don't care if they like the Texans, just as long as they report what's going on with them. I don't remember which station it is, maybe Fox, but the whole "Local news comes first" crap comes to mind right now.

Thank you. Though I write about football, I don't think you should tar me with the "sports writer" tag--I'm just a fan--one as desperate for news on my favo team as just about everyone here. (Who doesn't get paid other than just with the satisfaction that a fan's point of view has a chance to get heard).

Hmmm.

I hope Kubiak is just trying to be friendly.

It's generally not a good idea to try and make players feel like they are around because of one person. The players should be on the team because of what they do and did, not because of what some guy in the front office does or how he feels about them.

O well... just glad it is over. Forward Ho!!! ALL HAIL RICK SMITH

I used to assign half of the blame for our team's personnel decisions to Casserly, the same mistakes we have discussed ad nauseum on this board now. However, in the years since that time, I came into repeated, close contact with Texans management who told me sincerely that most of the boneheaded moves we have ascribed to Charlie's ignorance were in fact calls coming from the former coaching staff, including last year's Derrick Johnson debacle. If this be the truth (and I think it is), then it appears that I (and many of us) have rushed to misjudge the man. I have even met and very briefly spoke with Charlie a time or two, and while he can occasionally be a slight surly, he struck me as a particularly intelligent analyst and a well-qualified GM.

Regardless, he has done good things for this team in his time and I wish him luck wherever he ends up. I am excited about Rick Smith, but some of my very favorite NFL players are here by Charlie's doing, so I thank him for that.

I have felt this way from a far for a long time. For some reason I'm not that high on Smith, but I will take a wait and see stance. Casserly was a heck of a lot better than most think. He was a back room guy who knew all of the players both on the field and off the field. He also kept the public informed like few GM's like it or not. No, he is going to be sorrily missed by the Texans. Smith has big shoes to fill.

The Texans are a class act, and this is confirmed every step of the way. In just one week they give Casserly an ovation and let him speak to the team for the first time in his career, and then the FO gives us fans an inside look at the heart of the players lives with tours of the Reliant facilities, as well as a chance to actually interact with players.

Mr. McNair has more class in his pinky than the owner of our previous team.

THANK YOU!!!
