Default Casserly top 10 in worst sports GMs

http://www.askmen.com/sports/fitness...ge_s_recent_li

Quote:
Charlie Casserly
Houston Texans

Casserly drafted QB David Carr to be the face of the franchise, but his failure to put together an offensive line that could protect Carr left the young QB on his back for much of his tenure in Houston. Carr's tenure ended after the 2006 season, when he was released.

Worst move as general manager: Armed with the first pick overall in the 2006 draft, Casserly had first crack at selecting the already-anointed football Jesus, USC running back Reggie Bush. Casserly passed on Bush, and on Houston native Vince Young of the University of Texas, to select the talented and low-profile defensive end Mario Williams. This selection prompted the Houston fan base to collectively ask, “Who?”

Exactly,

i also take offense to the writers assertion that his "worst" move was the selection of Mario over VY & RB. Truthfully, neither of these guys has really proved anything remotely close to the billing they received so i don't know what he's basing that off of besides hype. IMO the PBUC deal was the worst move he made.

I think the author is on the money about his shots at Casserly for the Carr pick followed by a failure to provide him with adequate protection up front.
But its well known that Casserly was enamored with Bush, however as a lame-duck GM it was not him but the rookie HC at the time who passed on the USC back, so the author didn't have the story right on that one.

I think Carr's protection issue is so over blown in the media....Carr was the key reason he didn't have good protection. If the linemen don't know where you are, it's hard to protect you. Carr couldn't operate in a pocket, made poor decisions, couldn't read a defense and it killed the entire offense. I think we will see the line made up of mostly the same players play quite well this year.

I agree the o-line will be better without Carr at QB, and I think it would have been better in years past without Carr at QB. I don't think it will be "good" if good is considered average. I think the o-line will be the weak point of the offense due to a couple of weak links.

All that being said, I think if the Texans truly become a running team they will be capitalizing on the line's strength and hiding its weakness. If they try to be a passing team (with five and seven step drops) I think they'll find that McKinney/Flanagan and Salaam/Black aren't up to the task.

I predict that any Texans' success this year is based on a stout defense and lots of running plays.

And to go back on topic with the thread, the old regime coaching was far worse than Casserly's GM'ing.

Casserly wasn't a GM. He was an order desk clerk dressed in a GM figurehead suit. A short suit at that.

I thought Kevin McHale would be on that list as well as Millen.

Just supports my theory that you cant say Texans without saying bad oline... I think Casserly was a horrible GM, but Matt MIllen is WAY more deserving of that spot than Cass. Ill say worst move is Pendry to O cordinator. P Buc had potential to be a really good fit here, were as Pendry was a bum. Or Fangio running the defense so badly for so long.

I gotta agree with that one.

This is typical national writer. "Hey, it is the Texans and I've never watched their games but I will follow the company line and throw out O-line." In general, the things they mentioned didn't even scratch the surface of why Casserly was so horrible.

Default Re: Casserly top 10 in worst sports GMs

What's funny is that Casserly is one of the worst, but not for the reasons the writer gives.

The bloated contracts, the obsession with the age of 30, absurd trades, and refusal to cut bait with David Carr - those are better reasons.
