Casserly begins to draw fire locally
Not everyone at the Chronicle is on board with lady sportswriter Emily Davis' assessment that things are looking up with the Texans' offense. Indeed, columnist Richard Justice gets downright mean with Texans GM Charley Casserly on his blog (at least by recent Chronicle standards):
Bob McNair has offered no hint about what he'll do. But if he cleans out the coaching staff without firing general manager Charley Casserly as well, that would be ridiculous.
No matter what you think of the coaches - and it's hard to say anything good - the Texans simply don't have enough good players.
The national media also are beating up on Casserly today:
It's time to clean house in Houston. Dumping offensive coordinator Chris Palmer was only the beginning. At this point, head coach Dom Capers is the next guy out the door and general manager Charley Casserly isn't safe, either. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Quarterback David Carr isn't the only problem on this team. I don't see much help around him -- on either side of the ball -- and that's an issue that goes straight to the front office.
It's a shame that the early years of the Texans' franchise have effectively been wasted because of so many poor decisions.
