Jack Easterby might know God, he sure doesn’t know football. There are players, coaches and executives that are deeply committed to their faith; their football IQ is astronomically higher than Easterby’s.

Easterby is arguably the worst sports executive in the world. His faith served him well in New England - he was suited for that role. While he may be a saint as a character coach, he is a demon as a personnel executive.

Cal set the franchise up for failure when he anointed Easterby with an executive role. Easterby does not have the football aptitude to manage the team.
Deshaun making himself the buffoon now taking that away from E.

With the talent he had, he was able to get them to the playoffs. Then something went wrong.

These are not mind blowing stats but TT is a pretty good bridge type quarterback.

I read that he got a concussion in the playoff game and did not get to finish it.

That's all fine, but the Texans won 4 games with Watson ballin his ass off. I don't see that improving with Taylor.

Nothing against Taylor, mind you. Whoever the QB was going to be was coming to a shitty situation.

The Texans only won 4 mainly because of the defense. Now we have a new defensive coordinator with a different scheme. You have new players being brought in to fit said scheme. The offense should be ok and with them beefing up the offensive line, we might have a decent running game. Time will tell,

I think Ingram would have done better than the guys we had last year. Not Derrick Henry better, but maybe a couple of wins better.

& if our OL can play better than they did last year, that might be another couple. So I think Nick has put together an 8-8 team so far.

Scheme ain't **** if you don't have talent. A defense full of special teamers won't help no matter what the scheme is.

You're also going to have a QB less talented than Watson. So that equalizes anything you might be gaining elsewhere.

These players were not special teasers.

Kevin Pierre-Louis LB
Maliek Collins DT
Christian Kirksey LB
Shaw Lawson DE

These four players could possibly improve your defense .

Even Joe Thomas is pretty decent, very versatile playing all LB positions.

I don't see how any of them are much better, if at all, than what we've had. And none of them are JJ Watt and just the attention alone that he demands.

Lawson hasn't had a season with over 6.5 sacks. Mercilus has had more that that 4 times.
Kirksey has had 13.5 sacks in 7 seasons.
Pierre-Louis started 4 games in his 1st 6 seasons.
Joe Thomas, 14 starts in 7 years.
Collins in the middle may make the most impact of any of those guys you mentioned, but he didn't have a very good season last year.

I just don't see what's better than what we had.

you think NC is playing this for 2021? Lol. What. NC is gonna load up with “talent” this year and win the division? NC if anything has a vision and signing a few ill placed expensive “talented” free agents on a roster that MUST be purged first is asinine IMO And obviously in his also. This isn’t instant gratification time. This guy is shaking his roster to the core so what will emerge is HIS team and our shitty past is history. he wants ZERO threads of the past left.

That may be the case, but he wants to win as much as he can. I think the short term deals says he has an eye on the future. But the money he’s giving these guys says he definitely wants that particular player.

This is more of a retooling, imo, than the gut it at all cost rebuild I was expecting.

Those FA’s are all one year and two year signings.
Caserio is removing average players from the old regime and replacing them with average players from FA.
He’s changing the locker room and removing the old attitude.
He’s entering into a rebuild now more than ever.
That’s why he’s not trying to keep anyone.

Oh, we’re just getting warmed up.
Wait for the draft. Caserio will be busy.

Whoa! I'm not the one saying we're loading up on talent with a scheme that'll make us better. Why you quoting me?

I have no issue purging the roster of what's been around here the last few years. I simply don't see much that has changed with what they've brought in. TB74 apparently sees it different.

Those FA’s are all one year and two year signings.

Like I said, no issue with that. I'm not the one getting pumped up with the new faces and new schemes.

I always appreciate your thoughtful views. And I completely agree he wants those players he’s signing. And I agree he wants to win but I’m pretty sure those short term deals are his hedge on the future IF they don’t perform to his standards, and he knows the odds. I think “retooling” is a hope and a shortcut but I believe he’ll gut this team in a heartbeat to change its culture if necessary and those short term deals prove it. This guy certainly knows the methods of his job. Oh man, he’s in charge and he seems to have a laser vision. I’m on board because if a new GM of this team has to do anything it would be to eradicate from memory any connection with our past.
