Wait, The Texans Could Have Challenged Nick Caserio’s Contract With The Patriots After All?

This entire dumb saga just keeps getting more and more confusing.

The dumbest saga in the history of the dumb saga that is the Houston Texans just keep getting dumber. It seems apparent the Texans fired Brian Gaine so they could make Nick Caserio their general manager. You know the story: The Texans fired Gaine, tried to interview Caserio, the Patriots brought upon tampering charges, the Texans whimpered and backed off, the Pats dropped the charges, and now, the Texans will forgo having a...

This entire dumb saga just keeps getting more and more confusing.

The dumbest saga in the history of the dumb saga that is the Houston Texans just keep getting dumber. It now seems apparent the Texans fired Brian Gaine so they could make Nick Caserio their general manager. You know the story. The Patriots brought upon tampering charges, the Texans whimpered and backed off, and now, they will forgo having a general manager this season and probably make a run at Caserio next year.

Happy Father’s Day From Battle Red Blog

No easy jokes allowed.

Given how things have gone for the last week or so for your Houston Texans, a lesser man would center this post around Bill O’Brien wishing Bill Belichick a joyous Father’s Day.

I, however, am not such a man. I am a dude who, luckily, has a father and is a father. I’m also a guy who saw the following video come across his Facebook feed earlier tonight, and that’s a problem for a fellow who is admittedly a gigantic sap.

The Texans have recently given their...

S.N.O.T. (6-15-2019)

Look, I don’t care what anyone says: when I see Cal McNair, I think failed porn star from the early 1980s.

We forgot to coordinate a SNOT tonight, so here’s one. I figure there’s a need for a new thread even if you want to talk about this last week of Texans’ hilarity.

Take off your pants, grab a drink of your choice, and SNOT. Usual comment rules apply. Please discontinue use if you notice a rash.

Report: Texans Drop Pursuit Of Nick Caserio, Patriots Drop Tampering Charges; Texans Will Not Hire General Manager At All

The dream is over.

Last week Brian Gaine was fired around this same time. Today was the day the Texans were expecting to have his replacement in place. Houston interviewed Martin Mayhew and Ray Farmer, then turned their eyes on the guy they really wanted, Patriots executive of player personnel Nick Caserio.

Then the Patriots filed tampering charges because the Texans may have reached out to him before the position was open. These charges have been dropped because the Texans are no longer...

BRB Groupthink: The Texans Ain’t Changed, But They Ain’t The Same

On this week’s groupthink we talk about Brian Gaine some more.

Brian Gaine was fired last week, and the Texans, well the Texans have been hit with tampering charges by New England, and were expected to make a general manager decision by today, but it looks like that will all delayed because of Bill Belichick and his constant thirst for power and domination.

The team that never makes brash or quick hitch decisions did last week by firing Gain a year and a half into a five year contract,...

When Will The Texans Get Their Own Identity?

Is “Patriots Lite” really the way to go?

Ever since Gary Kubiak was fired in 2014 and then won a title in greener pastures, the Texans have done everything they could to be the New England Patriots. While this idea is nothing new, it’s never been more obvious that all the desire in the world won’t replicate what Patriots brain trust Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have accomplished now that the Patriots have pantsed the Texans in the debacle that has been Houston’s search for a new...

J.J. Watt, DeAndre Hopkins Named To PFF’s Top 50 Entering 2019

The Texans’ best last season are expected to once again be the best this season.

Earlier this year, I posted something eerily similar to what I’m writing now. Pro Football Focus names J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Deshaun Watson, and DeAndre Hopkins, to its Top 100 list. That was for the 2018 season. It’s now 2019. Check the facts, dummy. And so PFF is quenching the undeniable content thirst of the offseason by posting the same sort of list, but this time it’s for the Top 50 players...

What Would You Give Up To Hire Nick Caserio?

Texans fans vote on whether they’re willing to part ways with assets to hire a new general manager.

As the saga that is the Patriots’ accusation that the Texans wronged New England by tampering with Nick Caserio’s employment in Foxborough winds on, more and more pundits seem to think that this kerfuffle ends with Houston sending a draft pick or two to New England for the right to hire Caserio as Brian Gaine’s successor, either by agreement of the parties or perhaps as punishment by...

Could Jadeveon Clowney Sit Out the 2019 Season?

The Texans could be heading towards a Le’Veon Bell situation.

In the midst of the GM firing, subsequent search and Pot Calling The Kettle Black news cycle we find ourselves in, the big roster news for the Houston Texans, the contract situation with star edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney, has been seemingly placed in limbo. The recent news is that both sides were far off from reaching a deal before Gaine was fired and talks had stopped altogether.

With no general manager in place, it’s hard...
