Since the Rose Bowl, all of a sudden there are BOATLOADS of posters with less than 50 post and almost to a person are VY supporters. A great many apear to be of ...shall I say..of questionable origin. Not Texans fans, but just UT people who appear all of a sudden trying to blow up the board with support for their guy. The MB is open to all and good discussion is great, but mindless perroting of "Vince is God" is getting more than a little tiresome. Some have cogent things to say, but IMO, most are just posting the same drival over and over.

You're right. I literally almost screamed outloud earlier today after reading some of the threads. I am not complaining about someone posting their opinion, that is what we are all here for, but when you are trying to have a discussion with someone and all they can come back with is "Carr sucks Vince rules" it gets frustrating.

If anyone is brilliant enough to say that VY, Bush, or Carr sucks then its not worth a response...you might as well be responding to a cheerleader.

I'm a Houston fan above all else. It's my hometown. I want what's best for the teams that represent my hometown. Thus far the Texans have been a disaster. This was the playoff year, remember? Vince Young is what is best not only for the team, but also for the city. He's that special and that important. He is Nolan Ryan, Earl Campbell, and Hakeem Olajuwon rolled into one.

The good thing is that once you've read one post from many of these posters, you've read them all by that poster. It really saves time.

To be fair, there are a fewnew posters who show evidence that they may be valuable posters over the long haul.

The number one pick has generated some buzz; now we need to separate the wheat from the chaff (if I can mix metaphors).

Agree. If I may add one more - please can the emotional angst and anger - that gets us nowhere fast and is getting more and more difficult to read. McNair has stated more than once that he wants to draft someone to help us win now - hats off to whomever that is. At this point as long as we win more than 2 next year and make it at least an 8-8 year- I'll be happy - well, ok, I'd be happier if we made it to the playoffs - as long as I'm dreaming.:drool:

I can't wait until the dust settles a little also. There should be plenty of excitement within the process of finding our new coach and assistants, and their plans for the future of this team. That is what I am excited about.

It is way to emotional right now, posters screaming at each other about something that is months away. We have until late April to get jitters or worked up or whatever about the draft. The combine and pro days will spark good discussion of noteworthy picks as well. I expect another round of debate when that happens.

The first thing I noticed when I moved to Texas in 1979, was the "Drive Friendly" signs along the highway. I thought that was unusual thing to put along the side of the road, until I learned that when the sign flipped over, it was to caution you about ice on the road.

There are two reasons that I could never leave Texas: 1. Tex-Mex food and 2. How friendly the people are in this part of the world.

This is not to say that Texans can't get riled, but rather their natural state is one of uncommon friendliness to strangers, a distaste for rudeness and an appreciation of manners. (Though I will say that in my own personal experience, Dallas doesn't seem like the rest of Texas in that regard).

Outta of the many cities I have visited through out the country, Houston is the friendliest city I've been in by far.

Texans fans have been given a gift, paid by a difficult season, and it gives us all sorts of interesting possibilities. No sense being ugly about such a gift.

Now I am not going to pretend to be the internets police or anything, and I've gotten a little sideways a time or two myself, but it seems to me that rational minds can disagree about the merits of drafting various folks and the future of the Texans without getting their panties in a wad.

That we can state our beliefs without resorting to hyperbole, exaggeration or just plain ole silliness.

That broad generalization are often unfair.

That by not exaggerating or distorting the facts, your points are better understood and appreciated. This is especially true when discussing the relative merits of extremely talented college kids, kids that I reckon will always be better than our slow sorry selves.

That even talking about emotional things, you can discuss them without use of name calling and ad hominem arguments and the use of the words "brokeback mountain" or "manlove."

That it is quite possible that you might be wrong or unsure, and that it is OK to say that you don't know something.

That it is a good thing try to keep an open mind, listen to what people say, and ask good questions.

That offering facts and information and statistics that folks can learn from is always more appreciated than blather, though I suppose blather has its place. I am good at blathering. :)

That you are not Carnac, and if you were, why the heck are you spending time here instead of making money foretelling the future?

That you don't have to get a dig in when you can, and that some posts are so silly you don't have to respond to them because they are silly on their face.

That one of the best thing about human beings is that we are we have our own personal preferences, based on our life experiences, and that we don't all agree. If we all liked the same thing, it would be pretty boring and those things would get terribly expensive.

That people are people. They are humans. You don't have to go out of your way to say ugly things about other human beings. There is enough real ugliness in the world without manufacturing new ugliness.

That it is often best to walk away from trolls. Even if they get you in the eye with a pointy stick.

But also to remember that everybody was a newbie at one time, that some might be trolling but that a lot of these newbies just don't know the deal but are just trying to be enthusiastic fans. And the Texans need excited fans these days.

Some day this draft is just gonna be another part of Texans history. Hopefully it will be a good part. But there is no way to know that in January 2006, or April 2006 for that matter.

We get to wait and see and hope and pray.

It is amazing how funny and strange it is to be a sports fan. It is truly bizarre to be this passionate and care so strong about something that in the big scheme of life really doesn't matter.

Bizarre is good. :redtowel:

Why is this sudden UT interest such a bad thing?

Houston should be thrilled to be getting some interest from Cowboy-rich areas like Austin and San Antonio. We are still pretty weak in state-wide interest, and at least talking about Vince Young is getting fans in other cities reading articles about our coaches, GM, and players.

Someone once told me that sacasm is the lowest form of humor. And that makes a lot of sense to me.

Snide is not terribly pretty either.

Sarcasm and snide often don't translate very well in written communication, and can get kinda ugly. They wear on your some. It's because sarcasm and snide tend to reproduce--that the more sarcastic and snide you get, the more you tend to get back.

Just saying. Personally, I appreciate the posts more that actually have something to say that has real meaning.

Don't get me wrong. I love VY and the Longhorns are my college team. I just don't think he is the answer for our team in our current situation. I could be wrong, and it won't be the first time. Time will only tell. If he were to end up on the Texans, I would be excited about it and welcome him with open arms...but just as I would with almost anyone the organization chooses to bring in at this point, and give the decision time to see how it turns out.

To be totaly truthful, I've never really followed college ball except college basketball to which I'm a Jayhawk fan. So therefore, I never even heard of Vince Young or Reggie Bush for that matter until I started posting on this board. Now you might think I must live in a cave somewhere but the point I'm trying to make is...since the Rose bowl, being an I*d*i*o*t* to both players, that's all that you read about and not much of it before. If they were both such hot topics, why did it take so long for it to become news? Was it the season? Or was it simply something to talk about since we don't have ball anymore. I quess I'm trying to say, once this one goes away something else will come along and replace it. I'm not against either one of them if improves our season next year. Heck, I'd go for Snuffee whoever that is.

To be fair, I think that is the position of most Longhorn fans who are Texans fans. (Though I can emphathize with those outside of Houston that have been having problems seeing the games and want VY for those purposes).

My preference is to draft VY, but if it were in the best interest of the Texans to trade the pick and get a boatload of value for it, I would be for it (especially if it is a deal that makes sure that VY doesn't go to NO, TN, or the Cryboys--as I happen to believe that marketing can't be totally divorced from Xs and Os, because it matters to winning--cool matters, that's Reggie White's best legacy in GB).

I have not been the biggest Reggie fan for the various reasons that have been said ad nauseum on the MB, but if after much consideration and review, the Texans staff believe he is the best thing for our team and his game translates to the NFL, then I guess that support that pick too.

Well, I am guessing if you are talented with the rhyme, you can figure out one that is more positive, one that expresses what you really want to say without denigrating a nice, class guy.

I don't really think that I can persuade anybody here of anything, but if you happen to think that people might listen to what you are saying, a new sig might be less alienating. Just a thought.

So if someone on this board were to say "To hell with you, Dream!" out of frustration with your posting content and tone, it would be OK as long as they said "Nothing personal"?

I know my sig seems harsh and biased, but I can't help it.......it's been 4 long years, and people seem so content with keeping Carr here (from the GM, to even some fans), my sig isn't meant to be taken personal, just from a frustrated fans perspective.
Dig tha sig (Really I don't, just using the rhyming aspect)
Let Carr go far
When it's time to rhyme
Let the Young-B-Young
Bring 'em home, don't let 'em rome
Bring 'em back, Super Bowl on track
Bring 'em here, both helmets have steers
Bring it on, ....??????nothing really works here except Donkey Kong. Sorry. I thought I was doing good.

Would really make no difference to me, I'm here to talk football, not to be concerned about what people on the net think of me (when they don't even know me).

I think the point that was being made was it's not what people think of you (they don't know you), but what people think of your post content and tone and the subsequent quality of football conversation in which you'll be involved. Never mind me though, I'll go back to lurking. Have a nice day.

I'll tell ya what.....if the Texans don't want him.....we'll take him in a HEARTBEAT out here in AZ. I know, I know....it's HARD to be a Cardinals fan. However, I'm also a Texans fan #2.

I think you guys will take anything in AZ....no offense.....but like I've said before a fresh new start for David isn't a bad idea.

I see you like being an equal opportunity offender...no offense.

Reponding to Texans Chick post: I am one of those enthusiastic type Houston Texans fans that honestly doesn't have the confidence to interject my real thoughts on most subjects posted here. But I've learned so much and appreciate the mostly positive, but knowledgeable opinions I read on a daily basis.
That was a great post IMO. I tried to add to your reputation but was told I needed to "spread the love" in other words before giving you another high five

(insert my favorite flag flying smilie here) Just where DID it go?


I have only been posting on here for a couple of months or so, but born in Houston and grew up in Chambers County and go back to loving the Oilers since I was about 5 years old, and then along came the Texans...anyway..I did have a point before I rambled on, how do you add to someone's reputation? And the higher the better I am guessing? I just notice one day not too long ago, and I am not up to speed on that one yet.

I couldn't find the smilie you were talking about, it was my fav too. This one is pretty good though. :redtowel:

Since the Rose Bowl, all of a sudden there are BOATLOADS of posters with less than 50 post and almost to a person are VY supporters. A great many apear to be of ...shall I say..of questionable origin. Not Texans fans, but just UT people who appear all of a sudden trying to blow up the board with support for their guy. The MB is open to all and good discussion is great, but mindless perroting of "Vince is God" is getting more than a little tiresome. Some have cogent things to say, but IMO, most are just posting the same drival over and over.

Just letting you know I just joined this forum. I am not really VY or Texas and I don't think the Texans should pick him.

I'm a Houston fan above all else. It's my hometown. I want what's best for the teams that represent my hometown. Thus far the Texans have been a disaster. This was the playoff year, remember? Vince Young is what is best not only for the team, but also for the city. He's that special and that important. He is Nolan Ryan, Earl Campbell, and Hakeem Olajuwon rolled into one.
1. There Texans have been an Expansion franchise not a disaster.
2. If you believed we were playoff bound this year then you didn't actually watch the games last year.
3. Vince Young is an option and when you look at our needs and our salary cap he probably isn't the best option. (he might be though, but there is no way anyone logical, could as be 100% about it as you are.)
4. Hakeem Olajuwan is from AFRICA, not Houston. The city embraced him because he was a winner, not because he went to college in Houston. The city also loves two kids from Long Island, NY and Boston, Mass. named Biggio and Bagwell.
5. You must be a big time Houston Texans fan. ("Above all else" - LOL) NOTHING, not even a potential Playoff year perked your interested in joining the Messageboards. It was the chance to get Vince Young that made you join and make almost 100 post about how he is the greatest.

I, for one, am very glad to see new posters.

It's what we need.

I'm ready for more fans to speak out and not just read the posts and go on their way.

I agree - we need more thoughtful posters to keep the fresh ideas coming. However, the same idea 100 times in 3 days isn't real "fresh", nor thoughtful at that point.

I'm a Houston fan above all else, also. It's my hometown, also, I want what's best for the teams that represent my hometown, also.

However, I do not belive that Vince Young is the choice for the Texans. Vince Young is a great guy, and a great representative for our hometown. But I believe that he is a risky choice in comparison to Reggie Bush. You may be right, he may be everybody and their dog rolled into one. But... He is not a typical QB, and I fear that he will not run all over the NFL like he did college kids. And how many 260 lb. linebackers is it going to take to slow down his runs for glory. I hope he does great in the NFL. But, Bush is more of a sure thing. And I wonder if Houston can afford to gamble... and lose. Either way, I will support the player the Texans choose.
