McClain says Young is definitely coming out. You know it is going to happen! :sarcasm:

McClain is possibly the most useless excuse for a reporter I've ever seen. Either way from my sources, I can 100% guarantee the Texans are not going to draft Vince Young, so I doubt he is going to come out this year.
I think that coming to the Texans would be something that Vince would like... but going in the top 5 is his real goal. After all.. if he isnt playing for a houston team.. he can at least cry all night in his millions upon millions of dollars.
Vince will most likely go in the top 5 now.. I think he will come out.
I really hope he doesnt though.. cause that will fix alot of the debate going on in here. (though people will probably start supporting us trading down twice and picking up two more 1sts in next years draft so we can get him when he does come out)

Does anyone think that he has contacted the Texans to even ask if they might take him with the first pick. I mean if we say even if you come out we're not going to take you, then he has one less thing to think about. Of course then the Titans argument comes in but, that's completely different than playing for your home town. Just something to think about.
Also, I'm not sure if it's completely legal to talk to players about stuff like that, but you can't tell me information can't be passed between sources.

Young will come out regardless of who is in position to take him. He will be in the top 3 picks. McNair has made it clear that he will keep Carr in the fold. What that guarantees VY, he probably goes #2 to NO. They are close enough to home to draw the additional fans. Bottom line, Benson makes this call because in the long run it's all about marketing, business and money not to mention you may eventually see VY wearing his new San Antonio Saints jersey. He's only 2 1/2 hrs from home and 45 minutes from a tremendous fan base in Austin, Benson is way ahead of us on this one. Who knows, he may even be exploring what it may take to trade up with us to ensure this financial windfall for the Saints.
Lienart reunites with Chow in Tenn at #3. Lienart should have come out last year if being selected #1 was important to him. This year, even though he was a better QB, his fate was sealed by the dynamic performances of Bush and Young. If Houston trades the #1 pick, then it will be Bush reuniting with Chow at #3.
Either way VY is going to get some serious cash and major endorsement deals today if he comes out. He will be advised not to return to UT and risk injury to add a Heisman to his resume. His stock will not be any higher than it is right now. If Houston trades the #1 pick, the team that makes the move will more than likely have their eyes set on VY. Winning the Rose Bowl with that performance is like having the Heisman on your mantle, he cannot do anything next year to improve on being selected #1 this year.
Young has really upset the applecart for Bush and Lienert, he not only won the Rose Bowl but may have dropped the USC boys to #2 and #3. Both have Heismans and both may be selected behind VY.
