Disagree I like quality over quantity when it comes to draft picks and the 2022 picks really weren't affected. You dont like the Mills pick. I do like the fact that Caserio took a swing at finding his QB. The risk is certainly worth it. IMHO I know you wanted a defensive draft, the defensive side of the ball in this yrs draft was very weak. I'm glad Caserio didn't try to force a pick. Collins has talent and the only reason he was available in the 3rd was because he opted out. Do you not like the Collins pick.I know he is not proponent of preserving draft capital particularly in year 1 when it is your most valuable commodity. Nick is all to happy to trade it way. In a year when more draft picks are best, Nick ended up with less. I know Nick is a proponent of fiscal irresponsibility, robbing 2022 and 2023 for what amounts to basically nothing in 2021. Nick has never seen a contract that won't restructure. Buying a hamburger today and promising to repay next Tuesday is just plain bad business and bad management strategy. There simply is no excuse for Culley, even thou you may try. Refusing to take calls about interest in DW4 is just being a bonehead. Refusing to consider college coaches is just plain obstinate ignorance. There is nothing, absolutely nothing to suggest that Caserio will change his thought process. Sitting in a four wall office with no windows checking and grading scouting reports for 20 years does not make one a General Manager. It makes you a file clerk and this is why all of Belichicks file clerks have failed, most of them miserably.
Isomewhat agree with you about the re-structures. But I dont have a problem with re-structuring Tunsil/Cooks. The Texans will be young and need established vets to show the young guys the ropes.
No excuses for Culley but I dont see him as a mistake. I see him as a placeholder who will be replaced in a couple of yrs once the talent is in place. How many college coaches have been successful in the NFL? Fickell as HC of the Texans is a laughable idea. He hasn't even been successful at a major college program. Heck Caserio may as well hire Tressel he's had more success at a higher level program.
Agreed about DW4, I would've traded him before all of the sexual predator stuff came out. You know my thoughts on this suject very well.
At this point we dont know how Caserio will do as a GM. Although we're in agreement in that I would've rather Dorsey or Wolf becoming the GM instead of Caserio. Truth is if Mills and/or Collins hit this draft will have been a success and only time will tell if this is the case.
