    Ex-Falcons coach Dan Reeves has been hired by Mr. McNair to be a consultant for the Texans. Reeves job description will be to evaluate talent of players and other personell not specified. There will be a press conference coming soon. It is good to see McNair bring in older coaches to check out our players. Reeves has taken two teams to the Superbowl and has been a legitimate winner in this league. This should be a step in the right direction and provide insight into the true talent depth of our franchise.

    If indeed this happens:
    This is GREAT for our franchise. I wouldn't be against him moving in as Head Coach either.

    But I agree, we need someone like him to help us get back on track.

    Thanks for the Info.

    I really don't know whether or not he'd be wanting to be more than a consultant. I caught an interview he had on Outside The Lines a little while back, and he mentioned something about how he couldn't put the amount of time in that a HC position would require anymore. I would be glad to see him helping this organization get back on track though.

    thanx vinny for backing me on this one. I would have waited, but I thought the MB might as well know. The press conference should be later on today or tomorrow. From what I hear Reeves is a consultant and has no real interest in coaching due to his heart problems. McNair "might" be looking at him as a replacement for Casserly though. Reeves and McNair are alumni of South Carolina so they have a good history. Should be interesting.

    I welcome any other potential football mind to come to the table and help our teams owner by giving him an alternative opinion to Charlie Casserly. Even if he concurs with everything Casserly says (independently) I still think it's a great thing to bring someone else in to help Bob figure out what needs fixing. It's particularly good if Reeves honestly does have no internal desire to coach or seize any kind of power. As an unbiased consultant and friend of McNair he'll be invaluable.

    I just got a cryptic email telling me to tune in at 3:30 so I assume that is when the Texans officially announce this hiring.

    Hey Vinny I finally beat you to the punch once. Still not close to your tenure, but working on becoming a well respected poster. Also, just got an email bout 10 minutes ago. Seems like the offseason may start a little early. Cant wait to meet Coach Reeves.

    I say nanana nanana hey hey hey Goodbye...Charlie.

    I say hire Reeves as GM, and get rid of Charlie, who has detroyed this team.

    I also hope part of his evalution is to let Mcnair know what a fraud David Carr is an NFL QB....at least so far. This is a guy who coached John Elway and knows a real NFL QB when he sees one. I think Cass has been blowing smoke up Mcnair's chimney telling him that Carr is about to break out any time now. Cass doesn't look too good if Carr is a bum does he?

    This is the most excited I have been about anything off the field since....well since I cannot remember. Reeves for GM! :texflag:

    I like Dan Reeves. I think his firing was a little unwarranted because they didn't have Michael Vick for most of the year and I think he did a good job of setting up this team that has had pretty good success in Atlanta.

    Terrific news! Reeves will come in and most likely shadow Capers and staff and help with the pink slips. I still feel that Cass will be back next year.

    It will interesting how McNair defines his role and authority and how long he has that capacity.

    Thanks for the catch Coach and back up V.
