Not sure how ya go the 150. They showed 55 run 64 pass I think. Look like 119 to me. Kickoff returns equals 37 more yards, so that would be 156 i think...

Well, the 119 is a pretty fair first half. I am only interested in his run and pass yards as I am sure he won't be doing returns for us. Would mliked to have seen a few more on the run side, but still a half to go.

What's up with VY in the shotgun? He said he didn't like it because he could not read the defense fully. And what's with his stance?

I was just thinking that I had read somewhere that he spends a majority of the snaps out of the shotgun...now I'm wondering where I read that.

I know I will most likely get killed for saying this, but White is looking more like an NFL level RB then Bush in this game. I just wish I could see Bush take it up the middle a few times. Going East and West in the NFL just isnt going to work all the time.

I have said all year that Bush's own team and his opponents have made him look better than he really is.

That said, I would hardly be so quick to repeal or change my judgement of him based on one somewhat disappointing half.

I can't believe how quickly people flip-flop on here, about anyone. Bush is the man until he has one mediocre half, now half of his bandwagon are jumping ship. I hope Vince Young can, oh, I don't know, play two whole great halves, lest people so quickly recant their praises of him next.

And Vince was down on that play. Texas might have gone on to score any way, sure, but what the hell were the refs watching? Looks like the zebras want to bring this one back to the Big 12 ...

I don't think anyone's jumping ship, I just think all of the Bush hater's/lover's are in the same thread at the same time.

If I was drafting a Running back you have to look at him, I like him and Deangelo Williams. The one cut and go running backs always appeal to me as long as they can pass block, and catch the swing pass.

Funny thing is, I am more confused now on Bush then any other time. I was dead set against him because we have greater needs, but I like what I have seen in this game (I am looking at more then just him breaking loose all the time, I am looking at blocking, getting open when needed, and other things.) I also am impressed with Thomas... Sign me on his wagon

Look at the replay where the camera was from the endzone, VY had the ball in one hand with no control at the time his knee was on the ground.

And either way, they didnt look at the INT either...

If we got him he needs to stop trying to do everything himself (Like Vick does). He needs to think pass until he is pressured then use his god given ability. But he has a body like Culpepper, and moves like a running back. Its a risky pick, but what draft pick isnt ? :)

he has been passing, he only has like 4 incomplete passes and most of his completions have been downfield. Must of his running plays have been called running plays.

i'm watching him throw, and I'm not seeing this sidearm that was brought up earlier. I think i remember reading where he was working on his delivery over the summer, and I think he's got a heck of an arm. With his ability to scramble, he would be a great fit on the Texans, but what kind of trade value do you think Carr has? Or do you think he would take a back seat and be Vince's slappy?

Through three quarters, I am going to go on record as saying that, maybe, just maybe, I may have been wrong about Vince Young.

This guy is showing some chops. Good poise, good foot speed, and most importantly, a bigger and more accurate arm than I knew he had.

I don't know if he's worth the hype that some of this board has lavished upon him, but I am going to say that I like him a lot more right now than I have.


He does seem really accurate i would like to see if he can go deep. When I see him throw he always seems to be using touch I want to see what he can do when he really guns it.

I agree with that completely. I'm hoping he does stay in school for another year though. I don't want to have to think about the Texans trying to find a way to draft him and I still want to see Carr in an offense that's not the one we've been running for the past four years.

David's only going to be under contract for 2 more years....That will give us plenty of time to groom Young to be our franchise QB.


Yeah that's true. I think the fans of about 10-15 NFL franchises (maybe more) just added Vince Young to their wish lists. He comes out now he's the first QB taken maybe. I hope he stays one more year to get that Heisman. I still want Bush this year. Vince at the #1 next year.

Not the #1 overall of course. I don't ever want to see the Texans get this pick again by "merit". Trade maybe.

I have to agree with you. After a showing like that he should get a lot of intrest. In all honesty he could use another year of college to improve his reads, but I understand it completely if he leaves for the NFL.

I agree with that. I don't feel any different about Bush. I still want him with the first pick overall. In a perfect world I take Bush this year, then in 2007 I find a way to put Vince Young on my team.

I'm sorry but I've never once seen that kind of "will not be denied" game from David Carr. I've just never seen him do that. In the final drive Young was smiling in the huddle. He was under so much pressure it was almost visible. Hell I was feeling it! What does he do? He smiles in the huddle and then takes it down the field and into the endzone.

Give Carr one year under the next coaches system. Bring him back under the cheapest one of the possible deals and hope he shows signs of coming out of the four year funk he's been in. Then in 2007 go get Vince Young. Don't "hope he falls to you" or anything like that. Make a deal and get him.

Maybe. Next year is, well obviously a year away. Nobody knows who is going to appear on the horizon and become the next hot property. It's hard to tell. There are a lot of variables. Vince Young may not wait. He might come out this year. We don't know how we're going to finish under our next coaching regime. We might be closer to that top spot than we want to be. The teams above us might be teams that are set at QB.

Lots of variables. We'll see what happens. Right now though if he does as expected and stays at UT for another year then I think I still go ahead and take Bush. That's just me though.

He was one of the top rated passers in the NCAA's in 2005 and also was the first player EVER in the long history of College football to pass for 2500 and run for 1000 yards in one season.

"He's off the charts," Carroll said of Young, who would run 19 times for 200 yards and three scores and complete 30-of-40 passes for 267 more and become the first college QB to rush for 1,000 yards and throw for 2,500. "He's an extraordinary football player. He could run whenever he wanted to. He's the X factor." http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/canepa/20060105-9999-1s5canepa.html
