    I've been a staunch supporter of our GM Charlie Casserly since he arrived in 2002. Last year when he let Aaron Glenn and Jaime Sharper go I gave him the benefit of the doubt. When he gave up a draft pick for Phillip "toasty" Buchannon, I supported him. When he brought in Marolon Greenwood, I stuck by him. But now I'm beggining to agree with the others on this board that this dude has no idea of what he is doing. With all of the free agent talent out on the market at the present time why aren't we addressing our needs on the O-line? K. Mawae is already off the market and we didn't even make a push for him. The same for Mike Williams. Lavar Arrington is on the market and we're giving big money to Anthony Weaver and a backup QB who couldn't carry Tony banks jock. Who's next? Joe Somebody from Whatsamatta U? Luckily we have the 1st pick and Bush is such a can't miss prospect that there is no way he can skrew this up. Or can he? He'll probably trade the pick for another Tony Boselli and extra draft picks. To be honest, he'd be one hell of a used car salesman becuase he has been selling us Texans fans lemons for the past 4 years. I'm sorry...as much as I've tried to give this guy my support the facts are what they are. He is not a good GM! He doesn't know what he's doing. Obviously, Daniel Snyder of the Redskins took notice when took over the team and they are still trying to un-skrew all of his skrew-ups in Washington, how much longer is it going to take Bob McNair to do the same! :brickwall

    Dude Chill,like you said we have the first pick and he cant screw this up, or else he will be gone. Part of reason is the Texans dont want to be over cap, second he pays big money because no one will come here. Lets just hope he signs Flanagan and Andre Dyson:brickwall

    That may be true, but he needs to make another move to give everyone something fresh to complain about. :rolleyes:

    Patience. If they land Flanagan, Putzier, and Givens and/or Walter then the team will have had a respectable haul in free agency. This team is not going to be built overnight. The key move this offseason was landing Kubiak. He knows a thing or two about building a winner.

    I understand what your saying but you have to remember that Arrington and Mawae were both injury prone and Mawae is extremely old. We would be risking more than we would gain in those instances. Weaver actually was the no. 2 rated DE in free agency so you can't say he didn't go out and bring in some talent. Im not saying he is good but i do see why he has done what he has done. The only move i have hated this free agency is the Sage Rosnefels signing.

    Have we been said to have interest in Dyson? Also, we lost Givens and I don't see how Walter helps us fill our need for a #2 WR. Hopefully they just resign Gaffney.

    But Kubiak has significant input. At least it's him and not Capers.

    first things first...mawae is old and coming off a season ending injury...mike williams...are you kidding...the dude has been a complete bust and probably isn't worth thinking about...he doesn't fit the blocking schemes we have here...arrington is going to demand a ton of freaking money and the one thing people keep forgetting about is we started FA with almost 13 mil under the cap...you generally need around 7-10 mill for your drafted players...so really we only had 3-5 mill to play with this offseason...if we sign putzier and flanagan and then resign gaffney, wells, and the RFA's along with kevin walter we should be real close to the cap once the drafted rookies are signed...so to answer your question as to why casserly isn't just lining the FA's up...it's because reality-wise we didn't have that much money to be active

    They aren;'t going to sign Givens. He inked with Tennessee today. Keyfro, thanks for the post. I am new to this board, but some of the posters on here really need to chill. Geez, some of these players you guys get mad the Texans don't sign are worthless and washed up. I could take or leave CC, but thank God some of you aren't in charge of the Texans' GM duties.

    I agree Mawae is old, but c'mon...he'd be an upgrade from what we have now. Hell, I'd take Brad Hopkins back at this point. And let's not forget our WR situation. I know that $$ can't be that big of an issue....every team has an extra $10 mill to spend and we were already under the cap after we let go of Coleman, Walker, and Brown.

    Snyder likes to gamble....and there is a saying in gambling

    "Scared money don't make money" he ain't afraid to nut up and roll the dice. I'm not saying his decisions always pan out, but at least he ain't afraid to or tight when it comes to wanting to win.

    Well we are still looking to sign Flanagan, I hope that goes well. & we still have Hogdon....... don't forget, Kubiak has been studying our players. he's got his list, I'm sure he's checking it twice.

    Weaver..... while most of us has been looking for a pass rusher, I do agree that we need help stoping the run, and leadership on D..... I think he'll fill those two spots well.

    I actually like the Rosenfell signing..... just not the money. If David get's hurt, there's no reason to tank the rest of the season. We'll be fine.

    Casserly should have been axed this past offseason. He won a reprieve from the Governor but it's only a matter of time before he is sipping Maitai's in Bermuda with a Hula dancer named Mimi. So relax, and know that the Cass error...I mean era....is slowly but surely coming to an end in Houston.

    There is a lot we aren't seeing. For instance, apparently Bentley really wanted to go to the Browns. A lot of people here (myself included) were hoping Bentley would end up in Houston. It sounds like we were never in his line of sight. We picked up a defensive player from the Ravens - fantastic. We have picked up a QB that Kubiak scouted when he was in Denver - he sees something we don't, so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. If we could just pull an interior lineman, I'd feel better about next year's team.

    Flanagan is not going to make the worst pass blocking line in the history of the NFL into a gem overnight. We need to do more to at least LOOK like we're trying to improve.

    Considering all the people we've cut, our holes now outnumber our draft picks by quite a bit. I don't even expect to get anything worthwhile past round three anyway, so it's nigh impossible to address all of our needs in the draft. Even if you want to build slowly through the draft, at least sign some guys now to hold the team together until you get more draft picks.

    If we should be so concerned about saving cap space, since half the board looks at every free agent and goes "Whoa, too much money," then what talent to we have to show for all the salary we're apparently already spending? There are other teams out there who are safely under the cap, yet have very good teams. Why don't we? Probably because Charlie Casserly overpaid for bad talent for four years. I don't see how people can defend the guy.

    If we're going to overpay, at least we can overpay for good talent. But we sat on our ***, and now we have little to show for it while everyone else was busy getting all the good talent and improving. Aside from the coaching staff, I don't think we look any better than last year's team so far.

    I agree. I tried to give him my support in spite of his actions or lack there of, but if an entire fan base agrees he is not the right man for the job, then something should be done. I would still have a glimmer of hope for him, if he would just roll the dice and gamble a bit to at least show he has the gonads to play with the big boys. That's why I remain a loyal Cowboy fan as well. Jerry let's em hang and you see where they are compared to the Texans.

    One big reason is a blindfolded Monkey could make better picks in the 2nd and 3rd rounds than this guy. I hope like hell someone puts a straightjacket and muzzle on this guy on draft day. :ok:
