He has said it's not the GM or the Coach, no? It's Eaterby and Cal. I still can't fathom the fact that McNair is blind to the dire situation he's in. If he loves and needs easterby so much, remove him from the front office position, and put him on his private payroll. In addition, if Cal is well aware of Easterby's actions and both embraces and encourages its, he gets everything that's gonna come his way. And that pic of Cal and Hannah at the Bears game, where they are bored to death, will become the norm.
You’ve only heard the players side of the argument. You don’t know what Easterby does & how much of that is at the direction of Cal.

& as far as we know, firing Easterby will have no affect on the situation.

Until the bill comes due all at the same time. I don’t want to think what an average QB will be making 5 years from now.
This is why you have to win while your QB is on his rookie deal. sometimes you can extend that period out another couple of yrs on his 2nd deal. That's unless the QB is willing to take less for the opportunity to win championships.

Agreed but some of those players you could let walk. As far as QBs go thats a league wide problem and one they are going to have to address soon. The QB contracts are getting out of hand and they are either going to have to rein them in or install a Byrd type rule so they don't hit the cap like a truck as they do now.

Still.

There’s fixing a bad situation & making the most of a bad situation. I’d expect the 3rd highest paid GM to be able to do some fixing.
If you mean by fixing, trading DW4 away for maximum value and rebuilding the team correctly then I will agree with you. If you mean kissing DW4's azz then I strongly disagree with you.

My take: this is the media sensationalizing this story every chance they get. Most of what is being said by the talking heads is conjecture. The collective media is miffed at Texans ownership for firing Amy and doing everything they can to speak this trade into existence. Hell, on PTI, Wilbon said he hopes the Texans lose every game for the next 5 years.

Watson isn't going anywhere, the Texans still have the leverage. Cooler heads will eventually prevail.

What do you mean by fixing then?

Those are the only 2 choices that I see.
Every negotiation with disgruntled players can’t end in player leaving. That’s not resolving a problem, that’s getting rid of a problem.

It is what it is. If Caserio can’t “fix” this. Fine. Let’s move on. & I know he’s in a tough situation. But that’s strike one in my mind. Let’s see how he handles the next situation.

IMO shining like a diamond would be getting Watson back happy as a clam.

Getting a good deal in trade is a distant 2nd.
I agree, but Im also a realist


Or a pessimist depending on your perception

I believe Watson wants out and his mind is made up.

If he remains, what happens mid season if something else sets him off. Now is best time for Watson, Texans and Receiving NFL team For this to go down

So DW4 wanting to leave is strike one? SMDH

I'm glad they're going to be forced to rebuild. They weren't going to win anything anyway.

Agreed, what would you're value for DW4 be?

Mine would be pick 2/18/34 and 2022 1st/2nd or drop a 1st and give me Quinnen Williams.

If I had to give back a 2022 3rd to make this happen I would. You're getting the equivalent of four 1st's for DW4 and a 2022 3rd.

If they do this and hit on those picks then I dont think the rebuild will be as long as you think it will be.

If
That all depends on the team we are trading with IMO.

Either way, I want the trade to hurt. If its the Dolphins, Colts, Titans or Jags I want it to hurt more. I dont believe the Texans are dumb enough to want to face DW twice a year for the next decade or so... I doubt its in the AFCS

That hurt could come at the cost of a player AND picks or just a plethora of picks for this depleted season and the ones to come.

Im open and not set, but IF Watson is traded for anything less than Tunsil, Caserio needs to go.

If
IF is indeed the key word. But it's not if Nick hits on the picks. I have confidence that he would pick great players or at worst usable players who are not amazing but get the job done. See NE and how they have drafted as an example. They found key players who fit...and he learned from Hoodie.

The IF is will Cal and Easterby stay away and let him do the job he is here for. I have some doubt if either one of those two can let him do his job.

Teams have been calling but no team has been talked to except Miami and NY. Which is fitting seeing Watson has made remarks about liking both. But he has not done it flat out only in a round about way.
