McClain has become such a doddering old fool, I feel sorry for him. I wish he would retire. But then again, I have no confidence in the Chronicle to hire anyone better. Justice and Lopez are even dumber than McClain is.

One would think in a city the size of Houston, we would have good sportswriters at the main newspaper. Perhaps the Chronicle is too cheap to attract anyone with a triple digit IQ.

yea thaz pretty funny but wat is it with this guy and vince
A theroy of mine.

Vince hires an agent and tells him he wants to be a Houston Texan. If he can make that happen he will give the agent a little extra from the thirty five million signing bonus he would get as the overall number one. If young gets drafted #1 his agent stands to make millions off of his comission's. The agent then goes to the local media to convince them to start writting positive articals and riveting material on how Vince is a can't miss. Giving the contributing sports writters a kick back if they could help this poor kid full fill his dream of playing for his home town.(Lets just say 500k a piece) Justice and McClain would then use there talk shows and articals, knowing the pen is mightier than the sword, and convince all the home towners he is the footballs version of Jordan.(Even though they spent the last six months saying that about Reggie.)

That being said, I do think they Texans will draft Young. Then trade him to the Jets. I know what you are saying, thats crazy! However if the Texans are thinking of trading down, but are concerned about VY playing for your division fo, wouldnt the smart money be taking control of the situation and trading him to a team you wouldnt mind him playing for? Yes Bush would then go to the Tittans but a RB life span is only about 5-6 years then the talent starts to drop off, as apposed to a QB who's lifespan is 10-15 years. I do think if we trade with the Jets we get there #4, Abraham, and this years second. We then turn around and draft williams. That would be an impressive front four, Abraham, Johnson, Smith, Williams. Should be, three of four would be first round picks. Not to mention having the first and fourth pick in the second where we could get a TE and OL.

Thats just my wackey theroy.

I do like Justice's baseball stories. He knows what he's talking about when it comes to that. His football stories are different. Yes, he's giving his opinion, like sports writers are supposed to, but because I know he's more of a baseball person I tend to disregard his football articles (with good reason, IMO). Lopez doesn't seem to have a specialty, but he does seem to be the best at not going overboard with his opinions. He doesn't always look at both sides of the story, but he's the one that gets closest to doing it. McClain is, as we all know, a Vince Young or die type of guy. All he writes about is football and I usually ignore those articles, unless I feel like making fun of the guy.

I don't know by whom, but after a season of reading his pro football columns and blog postings, I am thoroughly unimpressed. I don't follow baseball, so perhaps he's a good baseball columnist.

But his football columns, his lack of logical thought (on football matters) and the way his opinion changes with the wind, are pathetic.

Oh, yeah. I'm starting to get this giddy feeling. I can see it now, Dallas makes the trade for #2, Oakland steps up & trades for our #1 & drafts VY, Dallas has to settle for Leinart & his bad wheels (or, trade back down for a net loss in picks), & Tennessee misses out on both QB's.

I think IF Dallas makes that trade and I highly doubt it, because of the Joey Galloway fiasco a few years back, they will be targeting the kid Haloti Ngata 6-5, 340 from Oregon. They need a beast in the middle (NT) to make the 3-4 work like Parcells wants and they need depth at that position. I just can't see Dallas giving up that much to get him. They still aren't down on Henson because they still don't know what he can do and Parcells likes Romo, so I don't think they want VY or MT.:twocents:

OzzO
02-18-2006, 01:14 PM
I caught the tail end of McLain's part, he noted:

- no way the Texans draft Vince if Carr is here - mainly because of the amount of money for the one position.
- asked McNair if he thought the thing worse than Young going to the Titans was going to the Cowboys and McNair rolled his eyes.
- noted the same rumor going around that the Cowboys may trade up to #2. However, that'd be all Jones as Parcells is not looking to groom a QB on the cowboys.

Parcells is at that "playoffs or else" point in his tenure so I'm not sure he would be looking at giving up picks to move up and take a rookie QB who will be a backup for a year - even if that QB has the potential to be a new and improved Steve McNair in a few years. If it happens, it's all on Jerry.

John McClain has more connections in the NFL than a Hooker has split-ends.

He once said that when the Granato was about to speak about how the Texans are gonna use the pick on Bush he abruptly interrupted and said what make you think that the Texans are gonna take Bush. Then after they (John and Lance) said, well what do you know. He replied back, I talk to the team all the time, don't think I know what they plan on doing.

Also I heard Casserly on a radio show today and he said all these great things about Bush and little about Young. Which leads me to believe they're talking up bush as to posture for someone to trade up. This always happens this time of yoear. Then when asked about a possible trade including Carr he said he would have to evaluate all options they are approached with. In the past he would've squashed that notion.

I disagree with you on this Vinny. I really think teams will be stepping on each other to trade with us to get Leinert ahead of New Orleans. Trading with New Orleans won't guarantee a team their guy unless we negotiate a contract with Bush before the draft which would be extremely stupid.

On another note, I was thinking about Sherman coming aboard when a thought out of left field hit me. What if Sherman signed only to help Kubiak with his startup and then eventually take over as our next GM. Seems like it would be a really good fit and a good reason to uproot his family and move them here. Of course A&M would be another good reason but the Texans GM job seems like the better job of the 2.

Casserly is only going to move down for a so-called Godfather package due to his early Texans trade history I feel. NO will take less and don't want to spend the money on a first overall unlike us who can do it and not worry about it in a cash flow sense.

I don't see why anyone would want to work out a massive package to us when the Saints are more motivated by finances. Just announce the deal when the Saints go on the clock. You cannot announce it before hand or it doesn't work.

You know, I see this being posted on this board so much that it is starting to get very annoying, especially when NO ONE can bring any CONCRETE EVIDENCE to the table prove this theory is a fact. I try to overlook it and let people believe whatever they want to, but you can only ignore so much until you just have to say something. But I don't want take this thread off topic and turn it into a Saints discussion, so I will just leave it along.

A theory isn't a fact. It's a theory. But this one is not so far-fetched. The Saints were receiving a subsidy from the great State of Louisiana prior to Katrina. And the Saints revenue post-Katrina has obviously been reduced. That doesn't mean the Saints are losing money. Just not making as much as their NFL brethren.

I think if there is substance to the Saints eventually moving to Los Angeles, Leinart will be the pick at #2. If the NFL and Benson are committed to making the Saints work in New Orleans, I think we'll see them try to move down in the draft and take Cutler. But that's just a theory.

tulexan
02-19-2006, 05:47 PM
Benson was cheap even before Katrina. There is a reason why his team is always several millions of dollars below the cap. He isn't committed to winning and is only concerned about making that extra buck. He knew that people would go watch the Saints regardless of their record because of the history of the team in the city. He didn't have to put a winning team on the field to put people in the stadium.

Because Vince will touch the ball every single play. Reggie Bush will touch the ball 15-20 times a game. He is not an impact player, nor will he ever be.

Vince Young is going to revolutionize the NFL. And if the Texans don't pick him, they will be playing in Los Angeles within the next ten years. The backlash of having Vince Young come into Reliant and kick the Texans' teeth in will be that bad.

JUstice has said that John McLain should be inducted in the NFL and MLB halls of fame. John is happily married and is very good at his job. He was a NFL beat guy for the chronicle which is why he spoke of the teetons and Cowgirls. He is now the Texans Beat Writer and is everywhere the Texans are. He was at the airport when they picked up Kubiak. You can crack jokes about the Brokeback scene, thats just showing you are down with that. I have never seen a gay redneck, a cowboy is a redneck so I doubt there are any gay cowboys unless you check the Dallas Locker room. I really could care less about your jokes but I do know first hand that John McLain is a stand up decent human being who is dedicated to his job and puts out better stuff than any other sports writer in the Houston area.

That would be an impressive front four, Abraham, Johnson, Smith, Williams. Should be, three of four would be first round picks. Not to mention having the first and fourth pick in the second where we could get a TE and OL.

Thats just my wackey theroy.

Interesting theory, but passionate fans can blindly pull for a guy w/o committing felonies in the process. Would make for a great story, but I'm going to have to pass on the conspiracy theory in this case.

JUstice has said that John McLain should be inducted in the NFL and MLB halls of fame. John is happily married and is very good at his job. He was a NFL beat guy for the chronicle which is why he spoke of the teetons and Cowgirls. He is now the Texans Beat Writer and is everywhere the Texans are. He was at the airport when they picked up Kubiak. You can crack jokes about the Brokeback scene, thats just showing you are down with that. I have never seen a gay redneck, a cowboy is a redneck so I doubt there are any gay cowboys unless you check the Dallas Locker room. I really could care less about your jokes but I do know first hand that John McLain is a stand up decent human being who is dedicated to his job and puts out better stuff than any other sports writer in the Houston area.

As far as his personal life, no comment, cause I have no idea. As far as his writing/analysis, I think it flat out sucks. But I have heard that McClain is fairly respected in league circles ... not sure if it's true, but the guy has earned his chops somehow.

Well then why would we pass up someone who went 37-2 over someone who went 30-2?

What are you, trying to make a factual point? :rolleyes: Vince has "it," no two ways about it. I would keep going but at the risk of being sacreligious I think it's fair to stop now.

LOL. What did he say?

He said he saw it and had a good laugh about it. He said he didn't realize that was VY also in that pic and they replied with "cause you never saw him from the front".

(So, McClain tossed up and easy lob and they knocked it out of the park.) John took it in good stride though.
