This just in...the top "10" reasons that the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie are:

Number 10..."Can you say Dominic Davis?"
Number 9... "We think a real LT might help"
Number 8..."He can't play Linebacker for us"
Number 7..."He can't start the other CB spot for us"
Number 6..."His too short to be that TE we need"
Number 5..."How about that Tony Hollings guy" (just kidding)
Number 4..."One Bush in Houston is enough thank you"
Number 3... "Casserly spent our money on Wade, Pitts and Coleman"
Number 2..."Some team will give their draft away to get him"

and the number one reason the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie is....
"Because Justice and McClain are certain we should draft him"

Go Texan's...the turnaround has already begun!:redtowel:

At first, I though this was a serious post, and was going to disect it.

But now I see that there is nothing serious about it.

Only 2 options for "day one draft" next year.

Draft reggie.

1. Reggie Bush RB
2. Jon Scott/Winston Justice/Daryn Colledge LT
3. Tatusi Lutui OG
3. Cedric Griffin CB

======================
Trade Bush for #1, #2 this year, and their #1 next year.

1. D'Brickashaw Ferguson LT (Winston did not impress me)
2. Michael Huff/ Darnell Bing S
2. Leonard Pope TE
3. Tatusi Lutui OG
3. Cedric Griffin CB

This is what Texans fans should be worring about, whether you draft Bush or trade for more picks the 1st round pick is going to help the team. It is what they do with the rest of the picks. Get some players who can help this team, not trade them away for unproven talent, or other team rejects like we have done for the past three years with the rest of day one selections.:twocents:

None of these are good points since we aren't going to draft any of those positions with the first pick anyways. What's to say we can't get a LB later in the draft?

I believe the point of that part was we could trade away the #1 pick and likely acquire a player at each of these positions for him.

Sorry, what I was attempting to do (with a bit of humor so I don't have to cry about this season) was to point out that since the team has many needs that drafting Reggie will not fix ...only time will tell if a trade for the rights to him would in fact fill in those need positions. Go Texans!

Well do you still want Reggie if:

(1) Titans offer to swap their 3rd pick in the draft, the rights to Jeff Fisher as HC assuming a deal could be done and their 2nd this year.

(2) Jets offer to swap 1's and send us John Abraham along with their 2nd this year.

(3) Oakland swaps 1's and sends us Robert Gallery and their 2nd this year.

(4) Arizona swaps 1's and sends us Leonard Davis and their 2nd this year and next.

(5) Detroit swaps 1's and sends us Jeff Backus along with their 2nd this year and next.

I'm a fan of trading down anyways, but swapping with the Jets and picking up additional picks (more than just one 2nd rounder) and John Abraham would be great, or swapping with Arizona for additional picks (definitely more than one 2nd rounder, probably next year's 1st as well) and Leonard Davis would be nice. Both the Jets and Cardinals would possibly be interested in trading up to get Bush or Leinart (Jets more likely on Bush, Cards probably more likely on Leinart). The Jets deal would maybe be realistic, but I'm not sure the Cards would give up Leonard Davis since he is their only decent OL, but I definitely wouldn't mind him anchoring down our LG spot.

Number 10..."Can you say Dominic Davis?" Yes, we can say it but we cannot spell it I guess, lol.

I heard this from Lance Zerlien on SR610 on one morning, not exact but you get the drift: "You dont pass up on Jordan because you have Clyde Drexler and risk taking Sam Bowie"

We cannot continue to keep ignoring the problems we have on our roster. Bush is a phenomenal athlete and could end up being a very good RB, but we have an opportunity to fill a bunch of the holes on our roster and at some point (at least if we ever want to become a good team) we need to fill those problems.

What if we don't have as many holes as we seem to have? Then we pass up a great prospect for holes we may or may not have. You may think we have a bunch of holes but Dan Reeves (who has more football knowledge in his finger tip than you do in your entire body) believes that the talent is not the problem.

What most of you dont understand is our problem this year was youth. We need to hit the free agent market and bring in some veteran leadership for our defense. The losses of Glenn and Sharper were way to much for our defense. You cant just trade down and draft for need when you have a awesome impact player like Bush there. Davis has been a very good back for us but almost any running back in this league can get 1000 yards but his biggest problem is he cant stay healthy and to me when you keep having to play his back-up as your starter there is a problem. Plus you could probably get maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder for Davis and then try to trade up in the draft to get a need and still get Bush.

Maybe if DD was rested once in a while every now and then on some downs and the backups used a lil' bit more, maybe he wouldn't get as dinged up and then we wouldn't be having all this "Draft Reggie" talk. I think with Wells, Morency and DD we are quite fine in that department. We also have a Pro-Bowl WR and 2 rising WR's in Mathis and Armstrong so we are ok there it seems. What we need is a legit TE (jury is stilll out on Bennie boy) and a few extra guys for depth and starts on the O-Line and defense...

Sure I agree, there isn't too much wrong with the talent we have, but I'd rather take a risk on some extra picks we need rather than a 'stud' we maybe don't :twocents:

I wouldnt say that DD is damaged goods. I like DD. I like the thought of having DD and Bush in the same backfield. Both have strong bursts thru the whole, both can catch, both are playmakers. That kind of combo is what got the Eagles to four NFC championships and a superbowl. I am suspecting that Bush is a little better than Westbrook.

Here is my opinion on DD. You cant finish a game with DD. He is not the type of back that you can just feed the ball to in the fourth quarter and grind the clock out to hold onto a lead. Hopefully Bush is that kind of back.

I do not believe that Dan Reeves ever said that we do not have serious talent issues at several key positions. BTW, Bum Philips knows something about football and the value of a solid ground game and stud running back and I seem to remember the Chronicle quoting him last week saying that the Texan's need to address their O-line needs and others more than they need another (even Reggie) playmaker.

For crying out loud, Bush is not a once in a generation prospect. He is a great athlete, a good RB, a pretty good WR, and a good KR, but he is not the best RB to come out of college since anything. This is not Madden where getting the fastest RB in the draft is a guaranteed 2500 rushing yards a year or anything, he is not going to improve our team over our current RBs enough to warrant taking him with the #1 overall pick and paying him $50-55 million.

I agree that Davis is not damaged goods and, as someone else posted as well, he would be a lot better and not get injured if we actually brought in one of his backups every now and then. However, I think you have things backwards with your second paragraph. If anything, Bush would be the kind of RB you have in earlier in the game to hopefully get some big gains and maybe build a lead, while Davis would be the one you bring in at the end of a game to get steady gains and keep the clock running.

If we were to use Bush as a WR, you don't draft him #1, you don't ever draft WRs #1. You don't draft a part-time RB #1, especially when you already have a capable group of RBs and have so many other problems on your defense and need a new offensive line in order to get your running game and passing game anywhere. Therefore, I wouldn't draft a combination part-time WR, part-time RB with the #1. You don't put a #1 overall pick, supposedly the franchise player, and a $55 million contract as a KR, not to mention Mathis is already a Pro Bowl KR in his first season.

If he is a receiver when he is not a running back then he is not just a part time player. He is a full time offensive player.

Jerry Rice was drafted at #16 in 1985. Keyshawn Johnson was drafted #1 in 1997 and he hasn't worked out to be anywhere near the best WR of anything, and Irving Fryar was selected #1 in 1984, and likewise he was never that great, he put up a solid career but nothing spectacular. On that note, Ki-Jana Carter was the last RB taken at #1 in 1995 and he didn't work out either, had injury problems and never became much of anything. Bo Jackson was the next most recent RB taken at #1 in 1986, and he was an absolute freak of an athlete, he was pretty nice until an injury ended his career, but he only made 1 Pro Bowl in 4 seasons.

If he is a receiver when he is not a running back then he is not just a part time player. He is a full time offensive player.

I understand that, but my point was you don't draft a full-time WR at the #1 overall, you don't generally draft a full-time RB at #1 overall, so why would you draft a combination of the two at #1? I understand Bush is a phenomenal athlete, but he is not the most skilled RB to ever come out of college, he's definitely not the most skilled WR, and we already are pretty solid at RB and have many other problems we need to fix on our team that we can fix by trading that pick and acquiring an additional 3-4 draft picks and/or veteran players to fill those gaps that we would not otherwise be able to get.

Another interesting statistic I just noticed, in 2004 Curtis Martin led the NFL with 1697 rushing yards on 371 attempts (4.6 yards per carry), and added 12 rushing TDs, in addition to 41 catches for 245 yards and 2 more TDs. Would most people consider that to be a successful season? I think so, yet Martin's longest run on the year was 25 yards, his longest catch was 22 yards, and he only had 8 plays of over 20 yards all year, hardly a "home run threat", yet he led the league in rushing, put up fabulous stats for a RB, and led his team to a 10-6 record and a playoff win.

Look at last year's playoff teams:
New England (Corey Dillon), NY Jets (Curtis Martin), Pittsburgh (Jerome Bettis, Deuce Staley), Indianapolis (Edgerrin James), San Diego (LaDanian Tomlinson), Denver (Mike Anderson), Philadelphia (Brian Westbrook), Minnesota (Onterrio Smith), Atlanta (Warrick Dunn, TJ Duckett), Seattle (Shaun Alexander), St. Louis (Steven Jackson)
Most of these guys are not super fast RBs (Tomlinson is quite fast, Alexander is pretty fast, Dunn is fast, James is pretty fast), but good teams are more complete.

I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice to have a faster RB, but it is hardly necessary for success.

You need to stop listening to so much media hype. He has not statistically proven to be the best, even in the last 2-3 years, he is a phenomenal athlete but hardly has better complete RB skills than many of the NFLs good RBs. I'm not saying I don't want him on our team, but I don't see how he fits well enough to warrant using the #1 pick and spending so much money, and we have so many other problems that need to be fixed before Bush could even be effective and before our team will be good, and we can fill more of those holes by acquiring draft picks or NFL veterans in exchange for the #1 pick.

I never said he wasn't good, I think he would have been an amazing RB and probably a hall of famer, I just said he didn't get much of a chance to prove himself, and he only made 1 Pro Bowl in 4 seasons. The same could potentially happen to Bush, not to mention Bo was a much bigger and more powerful runner than Bush.

The same could potentially happen to Bush, not to mention Bo was a much bigger and more powerful runner than Bush.

Considering the lack of carries that he has had this season, I would like you to name a running back who had the same success with the same or less carries? Other running backs may have had 2000 rushing yards or 35 touchdowns, but they probably also gained those yards and touchdowns with 150 to 175 more carries.

I believe that Bo Jackson's injury was the result of being pulled from behind while running down the side line. A very similar injury that Priest Holmes suffered a few years ago but Priest recovered. Size had nothing to do with that injury. If you are not going to draft someone because of injury potential, even though he has no history of nagging injuries, then why draft anyone? Anyone can get injured. It doesn't matter if you are 200 lbs or 400 lbs, all it takes is one wrong hit and your career could be over. D'Brickashaw Ferguson could get a nasty hit below the knee and blow his knee out the first game. AJ Hawk could tackle someone and break his neck. You don't know what is going to happen so you can't be worried that someone could eventually get injured and never play again.

Bush's lack of carries is part of my point, he has not proven that he can carry the ball a bunch of times and take the ensuing pounding on his body. There are always ifs, ands, or buts in these situations, my point was looking purely at the stats that he and others have accumulated (which is the only objective thing you can measure on these guys as almost every other quality in a player is a matter of opinion), he has not come out on top of many of the RBs in recent years. I also was not saying that Bo Jackson's size had anything to do with his injury, I was merely pointing out that he was as good of an athlete as Reggie Bush but was bigger and ran with more power than Bush and therefore was a more complete runner (notice I did not say a more complete player, but a more complete runner). Of course anyone can get hurt, I was just pointing out that RBs and WRs don't generally go at the #1 pick, and that the few that had been picked that high did not generally perform to the expected standards of a #1 pick. I think you are trying to read into what I'm saying too much.

You could look at his lack of carries as that he hasn't proven that he can carry the load for a team, but you could also look at it as someone who still has some tread on the tires. Considering that RB's generally have shorter careers than most other positions, wouldn't you want someone who has carried the ball fewer times? Both Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown shared carries last year at Auburn and were picked 5th and 2nd respectively. They had substantially fewer carries than the Cedric Benson who was picked 4th. In fact, some people had worries that Cedric carried the ball too much in college and that he was more susceptible to injuries because his body is worn down. Not surprisingly, Cedric played only a handful of games before having a season ending injury and Cadillac and Ronnie for the most part played the entire season and were very productive.

MorKnolle
01-03-2006, 02:26 PM
That is one way to turn the fact that Reggie has fewer carries than most RBs into a positive for him, but I disagree. If someone had carried the ball 400 times a year the last couple years and had sustained nagging injuries from it then sure it's a problem, but that's not ever the case. Cadillac and Ronnie shared carries last year, and you saw what happened this year when Cadillac came in and carried the ball a bunch of times at the beginning of the year: he got injured when he was overused, just like Davis. When someone is 21-23 years old I'm not too worried about having too much wear on them, I'm more worried that they have proven that they can handle a decently heavy workload of carries, and if we're going to draft him at #1 and spend that much money on him, I want to make sure he can carry our running game and be our franchise RB, not continue to split time at RB like he's done all throughout his college career.

01-03-2006, 05:04 PM
The injuries that Cadillac suffered were not due to him carrying the ball just at a higher rate than he was used to in college, but he was carrying the ball almost 30 times per game. I believe he carried the ball 88 times in the first 3 games which averages out to 29.33 times per game. He was on pace to carry the ball almost 470 times in the season.

He never should have been carrying the ball that many times. When you carry the ball that many times your body is going to break down. Shaun Alexander had a stretch of 3 games where he carried the ball 88 times and had 390 yards, but the next game he had 19 rushes for 49 yards. He was hardly the same explosive runner that we were used to seeing. Very few players can handle a high amount of carries for a sizeable portion of the season. Just ask Domanick Davis. We were running him into the ground and his body finally lost the battle.

I think he has proven that he can carry the load for a team. He single handedly beat Fresno State with 35 total touches. He had 26 touches in the UCLA game and only played in the first half because Carroll wanted to share the wealth and give some stats to Leinart and White. I believe that he could have broken LT's single game rushing record in that game if they wanted him to with his 260 yards in the first half. He had 30 touches in the Oregon game. He had 26 touches in the Notre Dame game and was the reason why they won that epic game.

This just in...the top "10" reasons that the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie are:

Number 10..."Can you say Dominic Davis?"
Number 9... "We think a real LT might help"
Number 8..."He can't play Linebacker for us"
Number 7..."He can't start the other CB spot for us"
Number 6..."His too short to be that TE we need"
Number 5..."How about that Tony Hollings guy" (just kidding)
Number 4..."One Bush in Houston is enough thank you"
Number 3... "Casserly spent our money on Wade, Pitts and Coleman"
Number 2..."Some team will give their draft away to get him"

and the number one reason the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie is....
"Because Justice and McClain are certain we should draft him"

Go Texan's...the turnaround has already begun!:redtowel:

You forgot to add John Granato's name with the NUMBER 1 Reason!

What most of you dont understand is our problem this year was youth. We need to hit the free agent market and bring in some veteran leadership for our defense. The losses of Glenn and Sharper were way to much for our defense. You cant just trade down and draft for need when you have a awesome impact player like Bush there. Davis has been a very good back for us but almost any running back in this league can get 1000 yards but his biggest problem is he cant stay healthy and to me when you keep having to play his back-up as your starter there is a problem. Plus you could probably get maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder for Davis and then try to trade up in the draft to get a need and still get Bush.

Bush In 06

Why do people keep thinking we can trade Davis. Multiple times it has been said, his contract makes him next to impossible to trade. And the fact that he is injured right now makes it even harder. I doubt if anyone would even consider giving a first day draft pick for his contract.

Espn runs full reports on him comparing him with Gale Sayers EVEN sitting the two down next to each other.

Half this city thinks he is Jesus Christ reborn.

To bad the Post went away. I wish 610 would go away except for Matt Jackson who cracks me up. I cant stand Granato, or even Mark Vandemeer (the annoying VOICE of the Houston Texans).

Expect season ticket increases with a Reggie Bush draft.

Not sure how much he'll cost, but a price tag over $100 mil wouldn't surprise me if you judge it just based upon hype alone.

I really hope you are joking and don't honestly believe that Reggie will get a contract over $100 million.

I think he's saying it facetiously that, if you based his contract on the hype he has gotten, it would be $100 mil.

As I said somewhere else, I am not impressed at all by Bush! not for all the hype!

No player is deserving of that much hype because there simply couldn't be any more hype. He made a bonehead move but has played the way you expect. If he has room he can make a big play but up against a tough defense he will get shut down. There's been a little of both so far but nothing that can stop the hype machine that much from what I've seen.

can i point out he made a boneheaded move taking the opening kickoff out of the endzone...net loss to usc, 10 yards. Reggie thinks he is his own hype....not football smart. Busted lateral, bad instincts, basically been shut down...i'd rather have lendale white or vince young.

With the Texan OL.. Bush wouldnt help us.. White would do better. On short yardage situations we have trouble getting Wells or DD a hole to open up.. heck we had trouble with Stacy Mack when he came here getting him a hole to pick up short yardage.. Bush is a talent on the field no doubt about it, but not for the Texans
