    UM......this is gonna take awhile.

    After 2 hours of thought, I've only got one good one.

    1. Mcnair likes to have someone, with a goofier smile than his, at his side at all times.

    2. Casserly owns a FLOW-BEE, and Mcnair hates the thought of having to pay for a haircut ?

    3. The new staff is tapping into Casserly's brain for info on all the TEXANS. THIS scares me, since Casserly seems to know nothing at all about TALENT on his own team or someone elses.


    HMMM, so why is he still here anyways ?

    I don't get it, and I sure don't like it.

    You gotta give him one thing, we arn't in Cap Hell like the jets and titans and other teams. That will cripple a team faster than one or 2 or 3 bad FA pickups. Hes not good in the draft or FA but at least we arnt way over the cap.

    I can oly come up with ONE real good reason he's still GM ....

    He hired Dom Capers .... He has convinced McNair that last seasons D-E-B-A-C-L-E is ALL Dom's fualt and NONE of his own and that by hiring Kubiak things will change rapidly .....


    Im NOT Buying it .... But obviously McNair has :ok:

    I think the reason is much more simple. Casserly is the only one that still remembers the combination to the safe :)

    The reason why Casserly is still here . . .

    . . . is because Dan Reeves told McNair that Casserly wasn't the problem. Reeves also told McNair that Carr was not the problem. Reeves obviously told McNair that coaching was the the problem.

    Reeves has been around the block a few times . . you know . . won a couple of Super Bowls, and minor stuff like that.

    You might want to consider what your problem is with Reeves . . . and talk about why you know more than he does.

    :fans: . . . :whistle:

    and YOU might want to get your FACTS straight. Dan Reeves has not won a couple super bowls. Heck for that matter he hasn't even won ONE. Lost FOUR in fact.

    So tell me again why CASSERLY is here?

    Good cap management

    With CBA uncertainty good to have Cass and Reeves

    Knows players in college

    and the #1 in my opinion is that he drafted Carr

    well there seems to be quite a bit of football knowledge here on the board today and I realize that it's much easier to attack ideas rather than propose alternative ones but I'll ask anyway .... who would we hire if Casserly was fired?

    I'd venture to say that we can't complain about CASS too much.

    What is Matt Millen on....coach #3 or 4????


    Corrosion I do like yours but I must admit the WE NEED SOMEONE TO FIRE THIS YEAR brought quite a chuckle.

    I'd venture to say we won't fire him b/c of McNair's loyalty. I mean he's going ride with his folks to the wheels fall off. Admirable in some respects Stupid in others.

    I just think some of the Casserly critics ought to cut Casserly and Carr some slack, and see what they both do with a different coaching staff first.

    I guess the 1971 (player) and 1977 (offensive coordinator) Superbowls with the Cowboys don't count?

    Dan Reeves has played or participated in 9 Superbowls by the way--more than anyone else I believe.

    As far as Casserly, I was in favor of sending him down the road as well. That hasn't been done but as a positive thought on the matter, the biggest knock on Casserly spells change in the FA and drafting of the team. He is known if anything to give his coaches too much of what they want. It appears at least two of the most questionable moves for the Texans (Buchanon and Babin) were such coach inspired moves. Given that the entire character of the coaching staff has changed, there is every reason to believe the character of the FA moves and drafting will change as well.

    Yes you're correct there Infantry. My apologies to Marcus if those are the two he was REFERRING too. I read it has him being an HC since he was making the Dom Connection.

    For Reeves to say Casserly wasn't the problem, then we have to assume, our linemen aren't the problem, our recievers, our defense, etc.. were not the problem, as well as Carr not being the problem. Casserly being with the Texans, pretty much says we have the talent on this team to win football games.... The Texans, "moves" so far seems to confirm that...... Weary was picked up. Walker, Coleman, and Hollings gone...... nothing we didn't expect.....

    I think this is likely the biggest factor in why Cass is still around. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would venture that the GM fraternity is a even smaller than the coaching frat. Meaning, those guys probably get recycled even more than head coaches. Even if the majority of posters on this board think he has goofed, he does have some credibility around the league. You can't have a first-time head coach and a first-time GM making the bulk of a franchise's decisions, or at least if you want to play it safe, that's how you'll look at it...

    Personally, I think Casserly lived fat off of Gibbs coaching ability (in a pre-cap, pre-free agency NFL) and after Gibbs left, that whole franchise fell apart. Since being here he has continually screwed-the-pooch; how in the hell do you have 2+ years to evaluate who should be the first expansion pick, and you still manage to pick the gimp? So, Cass better hope Kubiak is the next coming or he'll be off trying to dupe the next new owner into hiring him...

    I partly agree with this ... I see the head coach/GM as somewhat symbiotic in nature meaning that in the right situation one can benefit from the presence of the other .... when the 2 are at odds, both suffer ...
