It's about to start now, thanks for the heads-up
r. smith has just taken the stage.
it almost seems unfair that we have such a smart GM, this guy is gonna be really something, i like this guy
I like the commentary about integrating all their stand alone scouting systems and compiling the database so it is more user friendly. From what I understood, Casserly didn't like computers much.
WR in the 3rd or 4th huh
c'mon down jacoby, haha
they're still wishy washy when asked about c. spencer.
why is that so bad? Keep the other teams guessing...don't let them know if you may pull the trigger on a guy like Brown if he is there...it's all leverage right now...as fans, we will know soon enough.
right, right. ... i'm just a concerned fan.
He told the press that he informed McNair how they did it in the NFL and their scouting department has enough info after reviewing 2 game tapes....
.... oh wait, that was Casserly.
Agree with above - what a complete 180 we have leading our Texans now. Sounds like they're actually talking with each other and all parties involved are having a say. It's beautiful.
wow. it ended pretty abruptly.
That was interesting.
And after watching and listening to Rick Smith those few minutes, all I can say is we had better enjoy him while he's with us, because its only a matter of time before he's off to bigger and better things.
Why?--if he is successful, McNair will pay to keep him. If he isn't, why would people be beating down his door?
I've heard this complaint before from scouting personnel. A refusal to embrace newer, more efficient digital systems and a lack of integration or sensible coordination of available resources.
Vinny, that also stood out for me. Integrating everything and not having stand alone sections, I guess I am smarter than I think I am but I thought that would be a given?
At least he gave all the Draft Landry guys a woody by saying he would not have a problem drafting a safety in the first or the seventh.
The only complaint I have about the presser is that you can not hear the questions being asked. I would like to know what they are.
I would never discount the importance of money, but I just don't think its that simple in this situation.
And you're left to draw conclusions about what the questions were thru his responses.
Like when Smith laughed, almost giggled when he said something about not sharing what was in his "heart of hearts". I assume someone asked him which player he really was most excited about ? Or something along those lines ?
Or when he told "John" I am not going to answer that and you know it ... or something to that effect.
I asked this in another thread and I was hoping TC would be answer it, but they do not even put in the questions in the print media ..... Newspapers mostly, and they have some random quote. My only guess is that they do not want to give someone some free pub, but dang it that does not help the reader.
I could hear all of the questions just fine. I was wearing earbuds though so that could have helped. He said "No. I won't answer that" to John when John asked who they've picked in their own mock drafts (stupid question).
Can someone give us a brief runthrough on what all was said?
