Did Nick Caserio show his hand regarding David Culley and his future with the Houston Texans?

In a radio interview on Tuesday morning with Sports Radio 610, Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio was asked about Head Coach David Culley returning next season. After a 2-10 start that has an offense free falling to historical levels of ineptitude, it was only a matter of time that the noise made it from our Toro Times readers to the NFL media.

Caserio responded with, “I’m not going to make any comment on what’s going to happen after the season.” Which, of course, is the saving face and virtual standard operating procedure for NFL teams who aren’t dead set on their plans. The last thing the Houston Texans need is another distraction for David Culley and his squad as they look to Davis Mills re-taking the reigns.

Is David Culley to blame for the Houston Texans’ failures this year?

That is the question that Caserio needs to ask himself. Why stop there, though, as Cal McNair should also be included in this conversation. All these former New England Patriot staffers are doing the equivalent of what former Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia did.

Patricia brought in a culture that was grown with different teams, locker rooms, and attitudes that inhabited that “Patriot way.” The Houston Texans are that one friend that keeps going back to someone they shouldn’t, and they get hurt each and every time, but never learn their lesson.

Bill O’Brien, as good as he was, ultimately torpedoed this franchise. So why would the team want more former Patriot staff members down in Houston? There’s a reason that the “Patriot Way” works in New England- because that’s where it’s designed to be run.

Houston is the furthest thing from it, and their inability to let their own new culture grow is what is going to doom them into becoming perennial basement dwellers until massive changes arrive.

Next. Texans now own 3rd overall pick in the draft. dark
