    And so the Texans fire their GM Brian Gaine after all of one full season on the job.

    This 'organization' is so perpetually difficult to root for.

    I know nothing of the guy but I'd say that with Deshaun and Hopkins, and a few more good years of JJ Watt hopefully, they should be in win now mode. If they thought Gaine didn't get the job done in terms of depth building and in-season moves, or he wasn't on the same page with BOB, then maybe it's better to cut ties now.

    All I know is keep your paws off Nick Caserio. I doubt the Pats would let him leave. Not that they would contractually hold him I just think tt they would match whatever price he gets offered. He's integral and Belichick praises him all the time. 18 years he's been with the team now.

    Rumor is that Gaine has shown too much passivity in his short time for the likes of the new Mr. McNair. Fair argument, but it was still so very sudden. And it ultimately means that O'Brien is under just as much pressure to produce now or he's in McNair's ear trying to gain as much control as he can. Hopefully the former, of course.

    Caserio is absolutely their number 1 target.

    The Patriots filed tampering charges Wednesday against the Houston Texans for the attempted general manager hire of Nick Caserio, league sources told ESPN. The NFL now is expected to gather relevant informant to open its investigation against Houston.

    Texans: So, is that a no on the interview?

    A play-by-play of the utter disaster known as the AAF. I find it interesting how poorly planned and managed it was from the start. At no point in this article did it ever seem like something that had a possibility of success. Perhaps this is where things went wrong:

    One day, Charlie ran the rough idea past his dad. You need to talk to two people, Dick replied: John Madden and Bill Polian.

    Reports here, from all over really, are that we want him and he wants to be here, so just a matter of either fighting the tampering charges or forking over a midround pick to just seal the deal.

    Not the most graceful way of going about this, but given how uncoordinated this FO is most of the time ... fuck, I'll take it.

    Sorry but he’s ours

    In fact for trying to pry him away I sentence you to have no GM at all.

    Apparently the plan now is to go all in on Caserio after this season once his contract is up with NE. To which I imagine a scenario something like -

    his contract runs out, he's brought in to discuss the position, the Texans divulge everything about the organization, he tells them to fuck themselves and reports back everything he learns to Belichick while he and the pats celebrate his new contract with them over cognac and many laughs at the ineptitude of this team.
