    Bring on Ryans and give him good coaches and time. Bring back AJ too. Give the fans something to root for. I wish they would fire caserio too but if I'm wishing for **** that ain't gonna happen, I wish cal would sell and leave.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Lovie joins with the Flores lawsuit

    Why?

    Because Texans. That's why. He gets another year.

    Unlike Flores, Lovie did nothing to warrant yet another HC opportunity… other than already being employed by one of the dumbest organizations in sports.

    Pancakes says he signed a 6 year deal… so he must get 6.

    You will never convince me that Watson’s problems were Caseros’s fault

    Ben Johnson? What the hell does an Olympic sprinter know about the football! He ain't even American.

    Bring on a talented offensive mind as head coach, and then spend the draft and free agency loading up on defensive talent. We could challenge for the playoffs next season if we bring in a league-average free agent QB.

    I wonder why McClain's tone on Caserio has changed in the past year. Go back and listen to his podcast back when they fired Culley. He said the time is ticking on Caserio to get it right this time and there's no way Lovie Smith would be another one and done coach. Now he's out here defending Caserio so that he can pick a 3rd coach. It's not right and I don't expect anything to change for the better with this franchise.

    Texans fire David Culley after just one season

    Not the SA, the football stuff.

    But Watson wanted out far before that and that was based on his interactions with the FO including Caserio. I mean in the end Watson was right, knew this team was going nowhere, wanted out, had no confidence in the FO or coaching, rightly so it seems.

    Lovie probably knows details about why they pivoted to him during their coaching search that he could use to strengthen Flores' discrimination suit. He never should've been hired, but from the outside looking in, it's a shitty way to run an organization. The dysfunction will continue for at least another year with Caserio still the GM.

    Because Caserio’s a source… or he has a front office minion that feeds pancakes inside info and he doesn’t want to lose that.

    The one time I think the "don't even let him on the plane back" move could've been done for real. Caserio next please.

    Which is also why any African American HC candidate (Ryans) likely stays light years away from this place. Instant failure here will lead to no more chances if it doesn’t work out.

    Good. Thanks for nothing. But now Caserio is firmly under the microscope. Getting to hire a third head coach Is unprecedented. He’s ****ed up twice. He better get this one right or he’s out of here next.

    I thought it was Easterby and Cal's midnight hiring of Caserio that pissed off Watson in the first place, right? Hard to blame that part on Caserio.
