    CASSERLY TO GET DUMPED AFTER THE DRAFT

    "A league source tells us that the Houston Texans plan to fire G.M. Charley Casserly after the 2006 draft. Casserly has been the franchise's only general manager, joining the team more than two years before the Texans every played a game.

    The plans to part ways with Casserly, we hear, are common knowledge within the upper reaches of the organization.

    The move isn't all that surprising. Owner Bob McNair brought in former Broncos, Giants, and Falcons coach Dan Reeves as a consultant late in the 2005 season, and charged Reeves with the task of, among other things, evaluating the team's roster. Since that's usually the G.M.'s function, it wasn't a good sign for Casserly's long-term job security.

    And it's not unusual for a team to hold on to a football executive through the April draft in lieu of firing him at the end of the season. Casserly, in January, was privy to much of the team's free agency and draft strategies. He could have landed with another team and coughed up all sorts of sensitive information.

    Casserly has spent nearly 30 years in the NFL, including 23 with the Redskins. He reportedly is under consideration for a position in the league office. His contract with the Texans runs through June 2007".




    If this is true, I'm glad Bob McNair finally woke-up. CC is a joke. Now, we've just one more problem David Carr. Kubes please draft Vince.

    CARR TO BE TRADED, TEXANS TO DRAFT QB

    "A league source tells us that the Houston Texans plan to trade David Carr to the Kansas City Chiefs for a player to be named later. Carr has been the franchise's only starting quarterback, and was the team's very first pick in 2002.

    The plans to part ways with Carr, we hear, are common knowledge within the upper reaches of the organization.

    The move isn't all that surprising. Carr has been not panned out for Owner Bob McNair. His inability to read defenses, locking on to one receiver, and going into the fetal position at the first sign of trouble wasn't a good sign for Carr's long-term job security in Houston.

    And it's not unusual for a team to resign a player, even giving him a bonus before trading him.

    Carr has spent nearly 5 years in the NFL, and has produced nothing. His contract with the Texans runs through June 2009".

    Sounds plausible...but I tend to doubt that Mr McNair would be telling anyone in the league what his plans are concerning Casserly.

    The headline on this article probably should have had a ? behind it because it is probably just speculation on the writers part. Kind of like we do here on this MB.

    As should have been expected--this is from the Rumormill at Profootballtalk.com.

    Hookem's is a funny redo not something from the rumormill. PS Hookem--Carr has been in the NFL 4 years so far and his contract runs thru 2008.

    I think Charlie will be gone after the draft, but I also think it is his option. He could stay if he so chose.

    No, he should dump David Carr also. Carr is a joke too. What we need a leader and a winner to lead our team and not a QB that's has only 14 wins and 65 loses in past 4 years. Now, that's a loser!

    Definitely would be nice to have a link/source. And on another note...maybe we are seeing that it wasnt casserly that put this team together. It seems like previous post were correct and casserly just did what he had to do to get his coaches the players they wanted....Not that I like the blunders that he did with some of the trades we have done...but being an expansion team could play part in some of them...:spy:

    Another league source tells us that as fast as the University of Texas defense is, most NFL teams have faster defenses. This isn't a good sign for Reggie Bush in the NFL who was unable to turn the corner on the UT defense and couldn't run through the tackles either. The fact that he remained on the sidelines during most of the 4th Qtr in the Rose Bowl demonstrated that Pete Carroll knew he was a useless weapon against a top defense.

    bkimble, be careful referring to others as a joke. Sometimes the mirror when one looks into it can be brutally honest.

    You're right. CC isn't a joke, nor is David Carr. I just wish we'd better leaders in our organization. I stand corrected. Thank God for Kubes!
