Hall of Fame
but this is where you have to be careful. Belichick spoke highly of him. Crennel worked with him here and in KC for many years. Caserio also worked with him for a long time. BoB brought him in. None of these guys have had a bad word to say about dude...or haven’t said anything about him. You would think that at a minimum a guy like Crennel could’ve warned Cal before he brought him like “hey, I wouldn’t go there if I were you”...but nothing. He also had a ton of people in that same SI article that did back him.......they were just from other organizations..The telling thing to me is how nobody seems willing to speak out to back Easterby. The SI article hinted at a lot of discontentment not just within the locker room but the business side of the franchise. You've got local reporters saying they're hearing a lot of people both on the team and in management that are upset with the way things unfolded with Caserio's hiring with possibly even the president of the Texans leaving over it. There's no one supporting Easterby at least publicly that I've seen aside from Cal and Caserio but you've got leaks galore. Now, one of the two best players to ever play for the team is saying Easterby's a problem and the other (JJ) sure hasn't seemed like he's been pleased with the direction of the team.
It's clear that he's a negative influence on the team just from reading the tea leaves. Now he's DMing people asking them to take down negative tweets about him. His "culture" has seen one backstabbing after another in management and the football team has gotten way worse as a result of mismanagement. For a culture coach, he sure does seem to foster a lot of distrust, lying and backstabbing.
it’s definitely a weird juxtaposition and I can at least see Cal’s dilemma from a “who do you believe?” standpoint.
