    Especially, since from what I've heard, there is good reason to believe that Caserio will still be coming to Houston to take a great deal of the load.

    Good question. Article does not stay which game(s). I guess he is listed as an OT and he started there last week. I am just glad that both players apparently are improving.

    So glad you came back Doc. I’ve been in & out myself, it’s hard on this fan base what they’ve endured to be rational or sane. If this is true, then a major issue is resolved. It’s going to take a true wizard to put Humpty Dumpty back together again :stirpot:

    He'll get a big raise starting next year unless they want to go through another franchise tag fiasco

    It's a bad trade regardless of the coach

    It's already a disaster. Mortgaging the future to be 2-2 and a terrible offense is fireable

    I really don't know why we would trust obrien to hand pick another GM, especially when we don't know what Casio does exactly

    Why do you think that the Patriots had to fall back on that screwy contract that forbid him to jump ship until next season?..............they never tried to defend the fact that he shared GM duties with Belichick...............because that was his essentially his job description there...........that of a GM............making it a lateral move where interview and signing with another team could not be blocked

    They are holding him to his contract but at the same time haven't bothered to extend him

    It's not clear he shares GM future.

    Report: Pats’ Caserio, viewed around league as ‘organizer’ not ‘decision maker’ meets again with Miami

    The Boston Globe called it a surprise that Caserio even agreed to interview with the Dolphins, saying he turned down other GM opportunities in the past, including the Colts in 2012.

    From the Globe:

    It is believed (Caserio) is the salary cap guy since Floyd Reese left the team, and he is frequently on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium, keeping an eye on the roster as he keeps up with scouting the pro ranks and college players.

    Belichick frequently credits Caserio and his staff — the director of college scouting is Jon Robinson and the director of pro scouting is Bob Quinn — for finding players who contribute to the Patriots’ success, but many observers assume that Belichick is the one who pulls the strings, and it’s unclear how much influence Caserio has over those decisions.

    A league source said Friday night that little is known about Caserio, around the league and that he’s seen more as an organizer than decision-maker.

    ESPN’s Louis Riddick told the Palm Beach Post on Friday that Caserio is someone who knows his X’s and O’s and is a knowledgeable of various facets of the organization having jumped back and forth from coaching to personnel.

    But Riddick said the Dolphins shouldn’t assume Caserio would excel just because he comes from New England.

    That said, this is the Texans we're talking about. The ones with the new innovative "flatter" run organization. Whatever the F that means.

    Peioli is sitting out there. He's a known commodity as a gm and decision maker. As much as he didn't agree with him, Big Ben had his best years under Todd Haley. He forced Ben to get rid off the ball and take less hits. I think BOB is afraid of strong personalities.

    He's on his rookie deal.

    These are the final two years of the contract where we should expect real value/cost benefit.

    Oh please, we could trade for Brady as a backup, get Zeke from Dallas and Odell from Browns, get the entire Oline from the Eagles and the entire defense from the bears and all it cost us is a pair of rodeo tickets for each team’s owner and you would still say it was a bad trade if OBrien made it.

    I’m not happy with him as HC either but man I really want to know what BoB did to you to equal this level of hate. You’re starting to put Steel and his RS hate to shame, at least he gave Smith credit for Watson.

    Lets rephrase it then:

    We don't know if we want to resign him to another contract.

    So far he's been average at best - are you going to be happy paying an average OT huge money - $16m+ per year or about 6% of your total cap space?

    He may ask for more than they are willing to pony up ...

    Reports so far are that Tunsil is better then average.

    https://texanswire.usatoday.com/2019/10/03/pro-football-focus-becoming-fan-of-texans-laremy-tunsil/

    Per PFF, Tunsil has allowed two sacks in 2019; both came against the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.
    Following a rocky Week 1, Tunsil's 86.0 pass block grade over the past three weeks is 3rd among offensive tackles.

    As long as OB keeps playing the "shell game" with his OL.....when does anyone expect them to gain any type of continuity?

    Just once I'd like to see him have the guts to admit his mistake and sit Martin in favor of Fulton. Then and only then will I have any type of confidence that this team is trying to move in the right direction. The OL should look like this:

    LT- Tunsil
    LG- Howard
    OC- Fulton
    RG- Scharping
    RT- Johnson

    "I've said the same on multiple occasions.

    Johnson earned that spot ....

    He very well may and as far as paying an average, which Tunsil hasn’t been but we’ll table that, you can thank the Raiders for that one. Brown was a complete middle of the pack LT and they broke records paying him. Now any LT that is even remotely a stud is going to be adding extra zeros to their check. The current going rate for tackles can be blamed solely on the Raiders and their desperation to make a splash before moving to Vegas.
