Re: DT now a Panther

DT is going to a good situation for him. A rebuilding project. If he would've went to NE they would've cut him within 3 weeks.

And while Gibbs called the shots from the '89 season on, Charlie had a hand in the selection of Bobby Wilson and Desmond Howard too.

He was good with the old Plan B free agents, but his drafts were often horrid.
Casserly's Plan B free agent signings were a significant factor in the '91 Super Bowl season. Perhaps his greatest draft was his last as a GM for Houston in 2006. He netted 4 strong starters (DE Mario Williams, LB DeMeco Ryans, OT Eric Winston, and TE Owen Daniels). He deserves credit for resisting the temptation to draft Reggie Bush or Vince Young over Williams, who clearly turned out to be the best player from that draft.

Casserly also stockpiled three first round draft picks after the 1999 Division Championship season. After trading two of those to move up the board, the Skins drafted Arrington and Samuels at #2 and #3 overall, both very solid when you consider that Courtney Brown went #1 and Peter Warrick went #4.

Re: DT now a Panther

People really need to stop questioning the coaching decisions of letting players go..
It truly is a crap shoot on what they will do...

Point in fact...
Cartwright had a key block punt for a Safety for the raiders win against the chargers...

Betts had a key fumble returned for a TD,that cost the saints the game against Arizona...
See?

Devin Thomas may be great or maybe not....

What we do know is Armstrong is a Player now,making key TD saving gam winners...
And Banks is faster than the Flash and will break a return for a TD that will save our ass at least once this season. You wait!

Thomas will continue his career with Fantasia as he learns the System under John Fox,only to see John Fox fired at the end of the season and having to learn a new system that he may or may not have the time to dedicate himself with...

i like our direction and what Shanny is doing here...

That was a great trade. On draft day in 1999, Casserly acquired all of the New Orleans Saints 1999 selections, plus their first and third-round picks in 2000 by swapping the Redskins' fifth selection (RB Ricky Williams) in the first round for the Saints' 12th choice. He still managed to obtain the player that Washington wanted, Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey.
Casserly was also credited for putting together the 87 strike team that went undefeated and helped propel us to the super bowl.
While Casserly didn't alwyas draft well, he did draft Brian Mitchell in the fifth-round in 1990l. In 1996, Casserly picked Auburn University running back Stephen Davis in the fourth round. Davis paced the NFC in rushing in 1999 with 1,450 yards. Casserly also drafted future Pro Bowlers in wide receiver Keenan McCardell (12th round, 1991) and tight end Frank Wycheck (sixth round, 1993). During the 1999 off-season, Casserly acquired veteran quarterback Brad Johnson who responded with a Pro Bowl season and then won a super bowl with TB after Snyder got rid of them.
You can find almost any GM has picked poorly in the draft from time to time.
But one thing I can say is Casserly was a million times better than Cerratto .

Point taken on the '06 draft. After calling the shots for 14 drafts between the Redskins and Texans, sooner or later he was going to hit pay dirt. Though I would add that it was actually Texans' owner Bob McNair who made the decision to pass up on Bush and draft Mario. He said he wasn't interested in paying the money that Reggie Bush would command.

Bobby Beathard was the GM in the '87 strike year, not Casserly.

And what happened with all those players acquired from the Saints in '99? Can anyone point to the success of guys like Nate Stimson, Derek Smith, Jeff Hall and Tim Alexander?

Here and there he found some gems, no doubt. But the overall performance says it all -- he was the general manager of two teams that either fell completely flat on its face (the Redskins of 1993 on) or the mediocrity of the Houston Texans.

But yes, I'll concede that he's better than Vinny.

Re: DT now a Panther

I guess the small irony in all of this is that Fantasia is from North Carolina.

Re: DT now a Panther

Casserly faded much heat for NOT drafting R Bush, and instead going with Mario Williams. Mario had meaniful contribution much earlier but obviously both picks have worked out well

Re: DT now a Panther

Again, the decision to draft Mario Williams was Bob McNair's, not Charlie Casserly's. Here's McNair in an interview explaining why they passed up on Reggie Bush:

True, Beathard was still GM in '87, but Casserly did most of the legwork putting together the scab team that went 3-0 during the players' strike. Those games counted in the standings, and helped mightily when the Skins got to host the NFC Championship. Later as GM, his drafting Tre Johnson, Jon Jansen, and Chris Samuels were the kind of interior line selections that the Skins have lacked for the last decade until finally choosing Trent Williams this year. As for his QBs, letting Trent Green depart via free agency was a big mistake, and necessitated trading a 1st and 3rd to get Brad Johnson.

Re: DT now a Panther

Devin thomas was a baller on madden 11 lol but i know thats a video game ! I just thought he would have shined under shanny! But no worries i have the full trust of this coaching staff. It seems this is the first year since schotenheimer that i could fully trust the coaching staff and front office in their desicions. cutting him may not have been a bad idea. I hope he flourishes in Carolina.
