    This is of course assuming that Keim gets fired as he should.

    I know it is easy to be cautious of people tied to New England, but he has a bunch of experience and comes from a very stable organization which is something we need. His contract is up this year so I think he is free to sign wherever.

    I’d rather go for Lake Dawson out of Buffalo.

    Ed Dodds is the Asst GM out of Indy. He has a good history in the league and should be available.

    I think the tied to New England is overblown and it’s an easy way to dismiss somebody. People that do their job well will learn, especially when you’re working with arguably the greatest coach and talent evaluator in league history. Caserio would be a great hire for the position as would Dawson. Buffalo is doing some nice things and quietly put together a nice roster on both sides of the ball.

    Isn't this the guy that was blocked from talking to the Texans?

    I would actually look deep at Cowboys, Ravens, Browns (right-hand man of John Dorsey) organizations to find the best talent evaluator there is. No patriots people.

    Yes but he hasn’t resigned with the pats so he will be gone after this season and the Texans will hire him then. They have gone this year without a GM to basically hold his spot for him.

    It’s O’Brien’s show in Houston.

    Who has worked with Caserio and they are buddies and the reason why the Texans gave caserio a contract last off-season to be the GM. He will be there after the draft since that’s when his contract expires with the pats.

    Do you have anything to back this up other than the failed attempt to hire him in the off season?

    If you have some personal connection with Nick and Bill do tell.

    Bill O'Brien and the Patriots seem to have a contentious relationship. Maybe O'Brien just wanted a sit down with Nick to piss off the Pats. That post game sorta handshake from the 2 Bills might be telling. Just my opinion.

    If Caserio were to leave N E I would think Arizona would be the place where he would have more freedom and responsibility. IIRC Texans have traded away much of their draft capital to go all in this year.

    I’m as critical of Steve Keim as anybody but I’ll give him credit for the positives. He hasn’t mortgaged this teams future by trading away draft picks and he hasn’t destroyed the cap long term by signing players to bad deals. Unfortunately he’s proven to be a poor evaluator of talent and I don’t believe that’s changing anytime soon. It’s time to take this team in a new direction. This is a solid opening.

    Just what I’ve heard from the local guys who report on the Pats. It has changed in the past 48 hours and Caserios intent was to still go to Houston. If caserio doesn’t go to Houston he will stay in NE or go with Josh when/if he decides to leave.

    These are all pipe dreams sadly. We won't rid ourselves of Keim for at least another year.

    I’ve felt that way a majority of the season but if the team loses out with a few more embarrassing losses I think he’ll pull the trigger. Bidwill has worked diligently for years to build this fan base and bringing Keim back with 6 wins in 2 seasons will be a hard sell.
