Steelbtexan said #1 Caserio, #2 Gaine.
Ahh ok - I hadn't seen that for certain. Either way Rick is out the door (mostly) and I've wanted that for years.
Even if Gaine wasn't the best choice it's only fair to give him a clean slate and I'm willing to do that.
I think all this is lining up for a make or break season for Ob.
They didn't even wait to interview guys like Caserio
On a side note - I found it peculiar that ob and the mcnair's weren't present for the gaine press conference.
Maybe that happens often but I can't remember ever seeing it with us or other teams.
Yup. Hire a firm to find the best candidate. Interview 2 guys. Hire in less then 2 weeks. Not really an inspiring search effort. Again, they took the easy route.
McClain said it was because the Texans wanted it to be Gaine’s day; with no distractions.
Incidentally that's the same way they hired OBrien.
They should interview tons of guys at least just to hear what their plans would be. Could be eye opening to an owner who doesn't seem to know anything
Good point, not just the McNairs were absent, all 4 decision makers missed it.
What's also unusual is someone returning to a team less than 8 most after leaving it.
Could be but I doubt it. McClain typically makes it up as he goes. For me there are 2 conclusions:
-Mcnair's health is rapidly deteriorating or
-McNair wants to be as anonymous as possible after his "inmates" comment.
None of that explains the absence of all the top texans decision makers at his hiring conference. Again, this isn't something I would normally pay much attention to but it doesn't seem "standard."
Is he a legit insider? Serious question. Like I know cyberex on clutchfans is
That was his personal preference.
Unconfimed reports are that he spends lots of time in Holiday Inns.
I said Caserio and Gaine were my #1 and #2 choices in that order. Cak was just trying to misrepresent my post.
I have a grand total of 0 insider info.
Although I know some on this MB that do have some insider info.
McClain carrying the water.
I want to here from the McNair's.
# Never will happen
If McNair was having treatments on that day, you would think he would've scheduled the PC at a time that he could make it. Even if this is wrong and McNair had to have the treatments at the same exact time that the new GM of his 3 billion dollar enterprise was being introduced, it's only 5 mins from MDA or Methodist to NRG. You would've thought Cal would've made the trek while his dad was having treatments. # Strange
You have to wonder if the McNair's are truly happy hiring Gaine. Oh well, Ricky will be back next yr (His words not mine) so the McNair's will be happy.
Question, did the McNair's show up at the Casserly/Smith hiring PC's?
Everybody should give Gaine a clean slate. Quite a few on this MB wont.
This is a 2-3 yr project to fix Ricky's incompetence, so hopefully they give Gaine/BOB the time to put the team they want on the field.
Do you think this will happen?
Caserio was my #1 choice and you know this, so please don't do what you just did.
That’s a bit of a stretch, no?
Be honest, looking at all of the holes on the team and lack of draft picks do you honestly think it wont take this yrs draft/FA, next yrs draft/FA and maybe even 2020's draft/FA to get the mess that Ricky left behind?
This doesn't even include the worst case scenarios like, what if Watson doesn't make it back or is unable to play a full healthy season? Or if Clowney is signed to a huge contract (After 3 knee surgeries) and his knee blows out in a couple of yrs like CnD has predicted.
Best case scenario is the team will be good in 2-3 yrs. Next yr is an 8-8, 7-9 wash at best. Worst case is Watson/Clowney can't stay healthy and if that happens Gain/BOB will both be fired which will make some around here very happy.
