    I wonder how long it'll take for them to be coached up...
    Maybe wishful thinking on my part.

    One of the reports I'm hoping to read is that Devlin has been fired. He sucks. I didn't think he was that good when he was with the Jets and wondered why the Texans hired him. That clown gotta go.

    Well if O'Brien's presser is any indicator, he isn't going anywhere anytime soon. He appears as connected to OB as Rick was with the McNairs for all those years

    yup, and this is where having a GM and coach perfectly aligned can rear it's ugly head. Much like when Kubs was forced to move on from Richard Smith, it looks like O'Brien needs someone to force him to move on from Devlin. Hopefully Gaine isn't so aligned that he is buying into Devlin how OB already has

    Yes I want another OC. But will Obrien micromanage him. Will he allow him to do his job. Will Obrien try to force the weekly change in the offensive scheme.

    Gaines will do a great job again in acquiring what we need. But will those additions be coached up properly. Will those players hold up because it seem these players come here to get hurt.

    I like RAC but I truly think his time has come and gone. It's time for a change.
    Gaines is unfortunately Rick 2.0. Mainly in the sense of being a yes man to O'brien.

    I'm betting you're wrong on Gaine and I am willing to give them as a team a chance.

    Dude just like Kubiak picked RS to be his GM, OB picked Gaine to be his GM. There's a real danger in that.

    This whole &*$@#% organization is so bass ackwards it's not even funny.

    That's like having a Walmart assistant manager pick the freaking store manager.

    Agreed,

    That's why I wanted Ricky/BOB both fired. But since that didn't happen all we can do is hope Gaine can add talent to a depleted roster. So far so good.

    Again he's going to add the talent Obrien wants without a fuss.

    Hopefully, that has happened here until last season and Gaine did a great job considering the obstacles that were in his path.

    Texans traditionally fire coach then GM, flush, and repeat process. Never together :barman:

    Capers & Casserly were effectively fired at the same time. Casserly just "stayed on" thru the draft with Kubiak in charge.

    Next season.....the damn ticket prices better not go up again!
    And someone needs to INSTRUCT OB to hire someone with an offensive mind. Cuz OB's offensive mind ain't cutting it.

    Like I said, never same time, don’t tell me Casserly had no impact in the 2006 NFL draft, that’s ludicrous. Ironically selecting (Casserly/Kubiak) DE Mario Williams then playing him out of position (until Wade) then (Smith/Crennel/O’Brian) taking another DE Clowney #1 then I guess just finally agreeing constractually anyway he is a DE and not an OLB.

    Lol

    Didn't say that. He convinced Kubiak to take Owen Daniels. But they stated at the time Casserly was staying thru the draft because he had hired the scouts and they didn't want to hire a new set before the draft. He was fired at the same time but his departure was delayed.

    Not like there is a lot of history to base that on... they're on the 3rd of each
