    Now that these two have control of the organization, will they go after the best players available via free agency, or come trade deadline? There's nobody left to throw under the bus. It's put up or shut up time for Billy-Oh Butt Chin!

    They better! They put the organization in this position, it's only right that they dig it back out of the hole themselves.

    Fire everybody after this clusterfvck.

    I dont ever want to hear how smart/innovative anybody in the Texans org is. They have pulled the wool over Cletus eyes and he's to much of a pu$$y to move on.

    Hopefully, this org needs a fresh start in the worst way.

    I honestly don’t know what the hell is going on. I don’t know if O’Bummer had Gaine fired, I don’t know if Cletus decided he needed to stand up on the bed and crow, but this is one big sh*t show. I didn’t even want Caserio, but this is bad. If we decide to not go into the season with a GM, that is utterly stupid.

    For one, O’Bummers team is in place now. That’s everything from his coaches all the way to his scouts. The new GM is going to bring his own player development personnel. Meaning his own scouts, and his own bodies in the front office. That means the glorified therapist jack Easterby won’t have a job. So, we’re really thinking about hiring somebody at the end of the season, giving them a few months (if that) to scout players, and then draft? Yeah. I’m sure that’s going to go over swimmingly. I mean Bill is not going to have a winning season this year. I’m sorry to break it to blindly optimistic fans but it’s not happening. He’s not a good coach, he has not had to play a tough schedule, ever, and now, we have one of the hardest in the NFL.

    I don’t even know what to say at this point. I don’t know if OB really has that much traction with ownership, but if he does, it’s probably best advised that we just go ahead and focus on Astros/rockets until this whole Dumbass saga blows over. Because it isn’t getting any better

    Depends, is NE cutting any more players that BB would let us have? Because apparently that’s the only place we’re allowed to get people from and only if they agree to it.

    OB has one shot I think.

    Hopefully he feels that pressure even if it’s just in my mind.


    It’s time to stop the stupidity. He’s been doing dumb **** since he gotten here and it’s gotten worse every year.

    If I were owner and OB comes out and run miller up the middle multiple times and comes out with the same stale offense I’d fire him at half time.

    He pulls qbs at half time in game one we can fire him in the same fashion.

    First, what does the team pastor know about NFL talent?

    Second, isn’t one of the major criticisms regarding O’Brien his ability to evaluate talent?

    Finally, who’s left in the Texans personnel department? Aren’t they Gaine’s guys after he cleaned house? Basically, the Gaine era is intact. Which I was told wasn’t good enough.

    If Cal McNair had a cell of football acumen in his brain, he would feel humiliated after this fiasco.

    Proceeding as though everything is copacetic.

    Genius. SteelB should appreciate that.

    If there was ever a thread posted out of pure spite, this is it. Answer is nah, Texans not worth your time. It'll be 11-5 to 0-16 and OB will be gone and you'll be happy

    SMDH

    Btw, Easterby is player development aka character coach... He has nothing to do with personnel anymore than Gaine did according to lots here

    About done with the negativity here

    OB has been been picking the talent since he’s been here. Hoyer, Fitz, Blue, Griffin, the majority of OL. You think he’s the one who can get guys like Watson and Hopkins?

    Hopefully Cal realizes he’s a bad coach and a bad talent evaluator, but I think OB has one more season until they try to sign Caserio.

    Hopkins was drafted while Kubiak was still the HC. O'Brien get no credit for Nuke.

    So the entire organization is on pause for Nick Caserio? That's the cherry of stupidity on top of this milk shake of incompetence. Drink up.

    I know Hopkins was drafted in Kubiak’s regime. I doubt OB can get us players like him is what I’m saying or much less develop players like other coaches do.

    Those were all Rick's, the scouts, and Gaines faults.

    If they would give OBrien proper scouting info he would pick the right guys

    Stating on the positive theme, are you positive Cal knows what he's doing and his nuts have dropped? Football wise I'm speaking of, this is a terrible look for the org.
