    Here's the question, and I admit that for my money it's a last ditch effort to display public opinion in a way that might remotely impact McNair's decision: Is it a mistake to keep Casserly? I think it is. I think this team has ONLY showed strength (insofar as it has showed strength) since Reeves was hired. I think Reeves for GM and work from there. Get real football people in this club and turn it into something.

    So I give you the poll: Is keeping Casserly a mistake?

    I think keepin Casserly would be a mistake. He IMO has not been able to make solid decisions in the draft or free agency. Overpayed a number of players. He got rid of veteran player off the defense. He still has not been able to place a decent offensive line in front of Carr. Which i would probaly only extend him for 2 years.

    I don't see how keeping Casserly is anything BUT a mistake.

    JJ has said on many occasions that the talent level on this team is not were it needs to be. While you can blame some of that on the coaches, getting talent to Houston is the GM's job.

    Fire his butt now!

    Without a doubt... Remember, he's the moron responsible for the Boselli fiasco.

    coaches tend to blame GM's and GM's tend to blame coaches.

    Just sayin.

    Personally I'd keep him if I were McNair but I'd seriously reign in that urge Casserly seems to have to take wild chances with my money and my team. The PBuc trade and the story about how little info they had on him is a perfect example. I believe the first version, not CC's "Oh we looked real closely at him and watched more than four tapes" follow up amd I think it's ok to bring Casserly back as long as the leash gets held a lot tighter on him.

    If he doesn't like that then fine, he can go work somewhere else.

    In an odd way, I would say no. There's too many questions / thoughts I have at this point to have no doubt that he should be gone...

    - Some bad pick trades, yes - but was that at result of coaches "want"?
    - Some good picks that have panned out. Hind sight 20/20, probably could've done better - but I would think an average GM overall?
    - Entirely clean house, will we ever know what was truly the issue?
    - Posts have been made that the talent is better than (now) 2-14... so isn't that a positive for the GM?
    - Reeves brought in as a consultant - apparently he gave his viewpoint to McNair, and he may just stick around as a consultant... as McNair's right hand... to verify Casserly makes the correct GM calls.
    - What other GM to take his place? Easy to launch... can you name a better replacement?

    If anything, Casserly may need to review his scouting department....

    Edit - I do think he's on the clock though to make the "perfect offseason" and better selections of coach and players.

    If Casserly stays - watch him try to bring Norv Turner as HC once he's fired at Oakland.

    OK. How many who voted yes were excited about McNair hiring Dan Reeves?

    GMs usually get two head coaches. Casserly is apparently going to get his chance to prove that he wasn't the problem - or that he was. It's hard to figure out for sure who was to blame if they both (Capers and Casserly) get fired at the same time.

    I don't have a problem with Reeves being GM, but I think Dan wants to coach again.

    I have heard the exact opposite. I think he is our GM, just not officially yet. :)

    My sense is that these are either (a) questions to which there are answers available, just not necessarily to us, or (b) remarks that have no meaning (such as, will we truly ever know? who cares? let's move along).

    As I said, I think Reeves might be a good GM and I think there are several others available.

    It sounds as if McNair has already made up his mind to keep Casserly, which seems to me a fundamental mistake. Casserly has run the farm for the last 4 years, and what you saw today, what you saw all year, is the best he can do.

    He should go.

    So you are trusting Charlie Casserly?The same guy that gave up multiple high picks for Jason Babin? The same guy that gave up multiple high picks for Buchanan?The same guy that took Jabar Gafney with the #1 pick of the 2nd round. The same guy who took 3 dbs in rounds 2-3 one year and NONE of them are on the team anymore. The same guy who took backup QBs and RBS in the 2nd and 3rd round yet skipped the O-line. The same guy that passed on Derrick Johnson and took Travis Johnson when they traded down?He is horrible and has ruined this team.
