Caserio could be NFL Executive of the Year

The Texans were near the bottom of the standings barely a year ago. Following David Culley's 4-13 season the year prior, their 3-13-1 season and hiring of Lovie Smith failed to build any momentum. Young players showed promise, but their development was marred by Davis Mills' spectacular failure as a quarterback.

Following Smith's firing before the team could even return to Houston from their Week 18 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, Caserio's job was also called for. After such a season, how could a general manager not position his team to secure the first overall pick? In the same season, this executive hired his third head coach?

Even before the NFL draft in April 2023, Caserio was under pressure. There were rumors that he might leave the organization after the draft or even be demoted. After Houston's blockbuster trade with Cleveland Browns in 2022, it was hard to find anyone who believed in its chief decision maker.

Now fast forward to November 2023, halfway through the NFL season.

It is not just the fact that Caserio no longer hears talk about his job security, but the fact that virtually every 2023 offseason decision has been vindicated. Although the Texans of 2021 and 2022 were both disastrous and pointless, the team of 2023 is every bit as fun and encouraging with fresh winning outlook for the season.
