This is my first time posting so please bear with me, but I have just read this on NFL network (written by Albert Breer) and was curious as to what the BRB community thought about it?
Charley Casserly doesn't get the credit he deserves for forming the core he did in Houston. And yes, I'm serious. Casserly was doomed by his selection of David Carr at the top of the 2002 draft, but if you look hard enough, you see, four years after his departure, that the ex-GM's fingerprints remain. Mario Williams may be out for the year, and Andre Johnson's hamstring may limit him for a while, but both those guys figure to be big-time pieces for years to come in Houston. Ditto on DeMeco Ryans, and Owen Daniels is another Pro Bowl selection drafted by Casserly. Two other holdovers, receiver Kevin Walter and tackle Eric Winston, also started last Sunday. Overall, that's not a bad haul. Now, in addition to missing on the quarterback, Casserly also struggled in building the roster's middle class. But the above group shows how his tenure in Houston was actually underrated.
I've only been aware of the Texans in the post Casserly era and so am largely unaware of his achievements, or otherwise, and was just wondering if you all thought this was a fair assessment or not? I've seen a lot posted about him in the comments of many other FanPosts before and would just like to broaden my knowledge a little about the Texans before I followed them.
