Default Charlie Casserly, Our Hero (Take THAT, Reggie Bush)

Literally awesome retrospective of the real-time 'analysis' by the 'experts' of 2006 draft where they maligned Charlie Casserly & Mario Williams:

Who's laughing now?!?!!?

Author should investigate who really made that pick.

While substance over style might have translated to a slightly better team on the field (a point which is highly specious given the different impacts of a RB/RET vs. DL), off the field, quite the opposite is the case. The Texans missed out on a chance to increase their revenue streams by latching on to Reggie Bush and promoting him as the face of the franchise. Instead, Williams is at best the fifth most recognized player in Houston (Johnson, Schaub, Cushing, Slaton/Daniels/Walters).

Revenue from jersey sales are shared among teams, the Texans would not have benifited from the sales any more than they do now.

The problem with the Texans’ running game has been injuries to the OL, last year there was pretty much a new front 5 each week.

Reggie would not have been more recognized than Schaub, Andre, Cushing or Demeco. So if you want to place Mario at #5, which is debatable… the highest you’d place Reggie would be #5. Unless your just talking about the casual football fan, which quite frankly is pointless.

Mario was the best pick at #1 then, and he continues to be the best of “The Top 3″ from that year.

Default Re: Charlie Casserly, Our Hero (Take THAT, Reggie Bush)

I would hardly call Casserly "our hero". IF, and thats a big IF ol' Chuck was responsible for Mario, which Ill go ahead and believe, then thats a very small penance he paid for the previous years of garbage he bestowed upon us. By no means do I thank him for anything hes done for us............remember it was his job.

Im just happy we have someone in the FO now that isnt a friggin moron.

One point Smithiak.

Asserly was actually in love with Reggie Bush. I have a hard time believing that he was the one who pulled the plug on taking Bush.

Next time you think of Asserly as a hero just remember all of this ...

I will always hate the Travis Johnson pick. Especially when I see Derrick Johnson still starting at KC.

I liked Jonathan Wells. I think under better circumstances he would've been a PRODUCTIVE back. Hard to come in as a rookie as it is let alone being a rookie for the expansion franchise with a scared QB.

How is ol' Jason Babin doing in Tennessee anyhow?

The Dave Ragone was a bad pick.

Casserly was an awful GM who missed more than he hit. And with high draft choices each year he should have been able to field a better team.

The Travis Johnson pick was the worst. Derrick Johnson was ripe for the picking. And we plucked a turd.

Default Re: Charlie Casserly, Our Hero (Take THAT, Reggie Bush)

Even IF (big IF) Casserly somehow managed to not *#$% up the 2006 1st pick all by himself, it does absolutely nothing to redeem him for the awful picks from the first 4 years. He was a complete failure as an NFL GM through and through. There is nothing that he ever did that can make up for all the terrible picks he made during his time here.

Oh, and no he doesn't deserve credit for picking Andre Johnson; the Detroit Lions deserve credit for taking Charles Rogers away from Casserly and Capers. The Lions made that decision for them.
