Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

I don't know about anyone else but NFL pre-game shows are virtually unwatchable for me. You get the usual stories, TO, McNabb crying, PacMan. You get some players like Emmitt Smith couldn't break down a game if his life depended on it.

Then there's Charley Casserly. He's smart, clear, and offers up things you might not know. He's a no frills guy who knows the NFL. I've got to say, that's about the only pre game segment that i enjoy anymore. Anyone else enjoy Casserly's segment?

Re: Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

and why is he not our GM? Norv (who he disliked) has been gone 9 years. Plus Danny already admitted he picked the wrong guy in choosing Norv to stay.

Is Vinny still the problem? Oh please there are a dozen or so tasks that he could be still doing for Danny just not player acquisition.

Bring him back. At this point he's probably the only good football mind that would come here given the FO structure.

Re: Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

Back in the day I watched pregame shows it was really my only NFL fix other then the morning paper, so it was new news to me. Now it is just re-hashed stuff from what they have been talking about all week on the internet.

Growing up in RI it was hard to get Skins news I use to subscribe to The Warpath it was a good maginze!

Re: Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

Apparently, and I don't know how true this is, the Chiefs were going to offer Casserly the GM job if Pioli didn't take it.

I think his next job in the NFL though will be in the league offices.

I agree.
Casserly's last draft with Houston Texans in 2006 was very productive, like the old Redskins Bethard/Casserly drafts of the early 80's:
4 starters and 2 probowl players.

1 1 Mario Williams DE North Carolina State
2 33 DeMeco Ryans MLB Alabama
3 66 Eric Winston T Miami (Fla.)
4 98 Owen Daniels TE Wisconsin

We have not drafted four starters in one draft since Snyder bought the team 10 years ago in May.

Yeah same here, back in the day you had to take every NFL nugget you could get, now with today's 24/7 coverage I can't remember the last time I sat through an entire pre-game show. I tune in at about 12:55 on Sundays.

I think we need to give people a quiz and a trial period before joining this site. I mean I remember my "let's look at Bernard Berrian" post back when I joined the site, and some ppl ripped me for it. LOL.

Re: Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

Does anyone really think Danny boy is going to let his boytoy Vinnie go anywhere, our only hope is one day when he sells the team or get's too old to make decisions..

I always liked Casserly and thought it took alot of balls for him to pass over Bush and make Williams the first pick. It was a good move as far as I'm concerned. Way to go Charley! I'd like to see Casserly back with us. He's a good personell guy and can take the heat when decisions need to be made.

Re: Charley Casserly on CBS Pregame

Casserly was fired by the redskins and the Texans. Both teams had a terrible record under his GM reign. Now he's doing the media.

Unfortunately, he's still better than Vinny.
