    I just head Cass on Rome. This guy is scary! He's the worse GM in the NFL, period. If Cass make the call on the number 1 pick we're in trouble. :yahoo:

    How many NFL GM's have you listened to?

    Plus the pick is up to Kubiak.

    Man I hear a lot of people bashing on CC. This man is a lot smarter than any of us give him credit for.

    Look. Those eyes are shrewd.

    Cass would make a good evil warlord, no?

    actually, it was on ESPN Cold Pizza this morning that word is Bob McNair is going to have the last word on who the number 1 pick is. and he is said to prefer Bush.

    cass and kubiak like both bush and williams, so bob will choose who he prefers.

    what difference does it make if he's the decider or not- he's already stated that its either reggie or mario, its a no-lose situation

    My avatar says it all......I hope they lock him out of the war room and drop him right after the draft. In my opinion he should have gone before Capers.

    When I was in Pittsburgh, I thought the scariest sight was the Steelers on signing free agents and Bill Cowher shutting down the offense for the Steelers in the 4th quarter and letting teams comeback. But when it comes to the entire NFL, Casserly is heads above the rest. What this guy does is over analyze situations. If he were to trade the pick for multiple draft choices, I could understand his position (I would hate it though!), but to possibly take Williams #1 overall with no compensation would be the biggest mistake in NFL HISTORY! Williams may even turn out to be a great player, but to pass on Young, Bush, and Leinart with no compensation would be unbelievable, especially with all the hype around Bush! This guy is really a recurring nightmare every draft season. I will give him credit though, he did select Andre Johnson and Dante Robinson, although word was he really wanted Charles Rogers.........And we see what happened to him! But after those picks, his draft rating would be a D+. Please select the right choice....Bush for 06'

    People really need to quit being sheep and think things through before they form thier opinions.

    Casserly has done a good job in the draft WITH THE PICKS HE DIDNT TRADE.

    his only mistakes have been trading up. When he actually picked players, he has a nice track record.

    keep him from trading picks, and he will get us some starters.

    Since he is most likely gone after the draft, it makes one wonder why the front office is keeping him around. I think it is because they value his opinion as part of the decision making process.

    It's not continuity if he's ignored, is it? It is continuity only if he's involved.

    Completely untrue. Go look at his 2nd and 3rd rounds. His Day 1 percentage of gusy who can be good or who are still on the team is horrible. Look at the 2nd round after Gaffney that year. He passed up Portis and about 5-6 other guys who could have succeeded on this team. Also, you can't discount the ones he traded away because that is part of his job. That is ridiculous to do.

    here is the problem with basing your whole arguement on 2nd and 3rd rounders.

    2005: no 2nd rounder, Morency in the 3rd.
    2004: no 2nd, no 3rd.
    2003: Bennie Joppru, Antwan Peek, Seth Wand, Dave Ragone
    2002: Jabar Gaffney, Chester Pitts, Fred Weary, Charles Hill

    now.. that means in 4 years we had 9 picks. The problem is that 8 of those picks came in 2003 and 2002 :P.

    So lets look at them.

    Morency: Not a bad pick. Alot of people are high on his potential. There are other players I might have prefered.. but we werent expecting to go 2-14 and have a chance at getting Bush this season. We needed someone behind Davis.

    Joppru: Not...Casserlys...Fault. Quit blaming it on him.

    Peek: Great pick. This guy could be a playmaker for us.

    Wand: Not a bust yet and quite possibly one of our starting tackles next season. Olinemen take time to groom sometimes.

    Ragone: Eh.. this pick is perfectly fine. I would have loved a more IMPORTANT pick here..but teams do need backup QBs..and we have had to use Ragone in the past, so its not a terrible pick.

    Gaffney: Great pick.. could have been a cornerstone for our offense if he hadnt been misused.

    Pitts: Started every snap since he was drafted. Superb pick.

    Weary: Seems to be a career backup..but we will know for sure with this new staff evaluating him.

    Hill: the only real bust.


    That, to me.. doesnt look like a horrid record. It seems that the big problem people have with Casserly is about who he passed on in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.. well newsflash for ya.. 30 other teams passed on that player too. If you go and look at Casserlys picks and compare them to everyone elses.. alot of the time you will see that we got some of the better players in those rounds.

    Also.. in regards to the 2002 draft. That was a horrible draft.. VERY FEW good players came out of it.

    BTW.. just to keep things fair.

    Jerome Mathis
    C.C. Brown
    Dunta Robinson
    Glen Earl
    Charlie Anderson
    Andre Johnson
    Domanick Davis
    Drew Henson
    Jonathen Wells
    Demarcus Faggins

    These are UNDENIABLE good picks that Casserly has made in rounds other than the 2nd and 3rd.

    People need to quit repeating the negative bunk that others say.
