Nick Caserio, Cal McNair, and Jack Easterby are still around.

Would half of the problems (sans the Watson allegations) that faced the Houston Texans on the field be present if Nick Caserio was never hired? Cal McNair did not listen to Watson on his desire to be a part of the search for a GM and a head coach, oblivious to his franchise signal-caller.

Caserio being hired was the match that started the firestorm of Watson not wanting to play here and led to the most anti-climactic trade deadlines in recent history. Every staff member that’s a former New England Patriot is exactly what’s wrong with this franchise.

McNair is off spouting racist comments at golf outings, Caserio is struggling big time to put together a competitive roster, and Jack Easterby is out here giving franchise advice in a parasitic state (like suggesting the DeAndre Hopkins trade). As John Fox once said, “It’s all a problem“.

Texans fans have made it very clear that they want the team to be sold, and a clean slate is given to one of the most crestfallen franchises in the league. Whoever leaves first will undoubtedly be celebrated, and the end of the tunnel getting closer with each one of these three no longer with the Texans franchise.
