Oh Peter King, You Naive Man

Reading through Peter King's congratulatory Monday Morning QB column, I stumbled upon a paragraph that is sure to make the eyes of every real Texans fan bleed:

Defensive Players of the Week
Mario Williams, DE, Houston
The Texans drafted Williams to beat Peyton Manning and the Colts, and he'd only been able to do it (with a little help from his friends) once in eight tries since coming to Houston as the first overall pick in the 2006 draft. On Sunday, Williams contributed mightily to the Texans' victory over Indianapolis. He hit Manning five times, once sacking him, and added four tackles. The way he knifed through and around the Indy offensive line Sunday, more than a few Houstonians should be sending former GM Charley Casserly a thank-you note this morning for ignoring the cries to take Vince Young or Reggie Bush and taking Williams instead. (emphasis added)

Actually Peter, and I know you're under strict pressure to laud Mr. Casserly every time you can because he's an "insider," Mr. Casserly was nothing but a puppet during the 2006 draft. Someone to be quickly deposed after that draft, but kept aboard out of courtesy by Bob McNair.

↵

That's been proven time and time again by the local media and local fans. In fact, it's so known that even Richard Justice knows it.

↵

So if you'll excuse me, the only thank you note I'll be sending to Mr. Casserly this year is one that reads "Thank you for the four years of terrible football, you terrible talent evaluator, but I quite enjoy watching the Texans be good while you sit there at CBS and act like you know what you're talking about."

After all, nobody has been wrong more than Charlie Casserly
