You want the truth?!?

You can't HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!

Bush said he isn't concerned about backlash from Texans fans who want the team to draft former Texas quarterback Vince Young (http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=135107). Young, scheduled to work out for the Texans on Friday, grew up in Houston and led the Longhorns to a 41-38 victory and a national championship against Bush and the Trojans in the Rose Bowl.


"I would hope it wouldn't turn out that way," Bush said. "I would hope that the city would welcome me with open arms. I know the fans want him to come here. But it's not the fans' choice. It's the choice of the program and the coaches."

I don't think it was classless or unproffesional, just stating the obvious. The fans have the right to voice their opinions by not showing up and spending their hard earned money, which I'm sure many VY supporters will do. I have the feeling though, they'll be coming back in groves when one Mr.Bush is tearing the league up.

It is obvious...... hence doesn't needed to be stated...... Kinda don't start none, won't be none..

Why pick a fight with an entity that doesn't really exist?? Why give the reporters something to work with??

Why give Houstonians a reason to not like him??

****************************************
I dunno.....but this kid is even smarter than I thought he was in the first place. In one simple, but direct statement Reggie makes a clarification for all to hear and understand, which is he knows who makes the decisions about the team personnel for the Texans, even if all the whiney VY-UT Longhorns
are confused and in denial about who is in charge.

There was nothing unprofessional or classless in Bush's remark. Asked about a backlash from Vince Young supporters (and if there is a backlash - that would be classless), Bush gave a direct and honest answer. The first pick in the NFL draft belongs to the Houston Texans. Not the Vince Young fan club.

I've never heard anyone accuse Reggie of being classless or unprofessional. Let me remind you that after the Rose Bowl Reggie went into the Texas locker room and congratulated them on their great victory. He didn't say that they were still the best team and that the game proved nothing (Matt Leinart), he didn't go around screaming "Who's the Heisman now?" (Vince Young).

He is as professional as they come and was just making a true statement regarding the decision making process with the Texans.

thunder,

I like to poke at UT homers on this topic, but I do think VY has talent. However, I am not sure how it is going to translate at the NFL level (I don't proclaim to be an "Internet scout"), but most importantly I don't think he is the right fit at this time for the Texans. If Carr had a bad year with all of the changes made and VY stayed at UT for his senior year...that may have been a different story.

Just because he thinks Bush is more of a talent than Young means he thinks Vince has no talent and will fail in the NFL? I mean why should we draft Vince Young with the #1 pick when he is not even the #1 QB in this draft?

Im one of the most pro-vince on this board, and a couple of things. One...i didnt find it classless....i didnt really find it anything but a statement. 2nd, I will not have "forgotten" vince by game 2, as someone said. However, like i said....this whole debate ends for me on the 29th...im not going to be on the boards saying i told you so everytime reggie gets tackled. I reserve the right to cheer for reggie/vince/whomever come gameday. Its not me being a fairweather fan to give my opinion on the potential success/failure of a prospect, however likely YOU think it is that he will be drafted. However, once he puts on the uniform, he is one of us...and unless his name is phillip buchanon or matt stevens there is really no reason to bash someone in a texans uniform during the season. AFTER next season we can come back and commiserate and talk about foresight and hindsight and all that, but i just want this place to be sane again after the draft.

Make excuses all you like, but that's classless........ I'm not saying Reggie's a cad.... only that he should have said something else.

in none of my "We should draft Vince posts, will you see me bring this up" but you're crazy if you think that was the right thing for Reggie to say.

" I don't care about the fans, they don't affect my bottom line" imagine if Carr said that.

ARe you sure you're talking about me, and not the "Pro-Vincers" in general??

I don't hold nothing against Reggie at all. I admit, I didn't know who he was before the RoseBowl.

I was against Reggie Before the RoseBowl, because I don't think we need another running back. We not only had real holes, but real problems that #1 could've been used to fix. I was in the trade down camp, until Vince declared his eligibility for the draft.

Then, I was in the trade down, or draft Vince, still thinking we ain't got a problem at RunningBack, but a huge question mark at QB.

After all the Kubiak/Casserly wheel'n and deal'n, I'm honest about no longer feeling a need to trade down....... we've got enough picks to do what we need to do. I'm also honest about the possibility of drafting Reggie....... damn you Sage Rosenfells. I'm also honest(more or less) about the David Carr prospect we've been looking at for 4 years.

I think I've done well not hating on Reggie to make my case for Vince.

You think it was class-less for Vince to scream"who's the Heisman??"??
I won't argue....... I can see your point.

Class-less to show up at the WhiteHouse for dinner with the President in sweats?? I'd say stupid, but you can call it what you want.

the 6 thing.......... well, I generally stay away from that one. Not much you can say.

"I don't give a $4iyt what the fans think. They don't sign my paycheck"


Class-less, and you know it.

There you go again, I find it hard to believe you're talking about me....... I never said we shouldn't draft Reggie because of this. I never said Reggie has no class because of this.

I said, it was class-less of him to say that, and he should have said something else.

I'm not using this to say the Texans shouldn't draft him. I'm not using this to say that he isn't a good person. I'm simply saying he shouldn't have said it. It is class-less, and unprofessional.......... I really don't see how we are arguing about this.

If Vince said the same thing, and you said what I said, I wouldn't have got involved to try and defend it. But if I did, I'd say, "Yeah, he should've just said that he'll do his best to change the fans minds."

It's one thing for a 10 year veteran to forget why he gets paid millions to play a game for a living........ Someone who hasn't played a down yet....... totally different. The fans might not have a say in if he'll be drafted by the Texans, much less whether he'll be the #1 overall, but the overall idea is to make the fans happy.

It was the wrong thing for him to say...... true or not true..... I wish he didn't say it....... and that's for his best interest, not mine.

The more I read your posts the more I think it's just your way of expressing your wish that VY was our QB instead of Carr, and that's an opinion that's probably shared by many.

I'm sort of in the Bush camp at this point, but, honestly, I think Bush's statement was just a tad over the top too. Mainly, though, I think we need to take a step back and realize that these guys are very young and they're competing for fame and fortune here. They really shouldn't even be asked about their opinions of each other or expected to talk about it. It may be that they are extrememly unimpressed with each other (they have a right to their opinions) and that Bush is extremely unimpressed with all the UT fandome, but they have to try and be PC and not tick anybody off. It's hard for young, athletic, AGGRESSIVE men to hold all that back and, considering all of that, I think we need to be forgiving about it. One thing about Bush, in particular, is that the Texans haven't actually drafted him YET and, until that happens, he has no particular reason to be a Texans fan or a fan of Houston and its fans. I wouldn't really be if I were him, because he doesn't even know the city or its people. His loyalties, for now, are with USC and it's place and people. That will begin to change the minute he hears the crowd roar in his favor, if not sooner.

If I were either one of them, some of what's be said on this very message board would really tick me off. Bush is too small and he'll never (isn't man enough) succeed at running between the tackles. He'll get hurt too much. Young is stupid and can't be trusted to lead or team or call plays and/or audibles. They've been questioned by everyone in every way and it's happened in the papers and such too, except that it's been said in a more PC way. The truth is that they probably hate each others guts and are trying very hard to ignore all the criticism. Of course, it comes with the territory and don't think I feel sorry for them at all. I just think we would wise to consider things through their eyes, for as long as we can before the money and fame MAKE US SICK. :)

I do, and it makes sense, and I agree with you. If the unthinkable happens and we draft Vince, and okay, Carr doesn't work for us? Bring it on Vince. I will still be first in line to shake his hand and welcome him to the squad. I do not think he is the best use of the pick, but okay, if we draft him, then great, I want to see him succeed and I will have no sour grapes about it during the season.

I am a Texans fan. This team's leadership (upper level FO) has and continues to work toward putting a quality team on the field, and I will continue to give them my "fandom" in return.

And TK, I see what you mean about Bush's statement, though I wouldn't take it so far as "classless." Not as tactful as it could have been, though. Enough mountains out of molehills.

That's your interpretation, not what he said. You take it out of context and make it sound that way. He said I know what fans may want, but they aren't the ones that pull the strings. He acknowledged that he knew what the fan-base wanted. What would you have said.

I guess telling it the way it is has become class-less, does the truth hurt that much?

sorry, I guess I jumped the gun on my last post when it had already been straightened out.

The fans have the right to voice their opinions by not showing up and spending their hard earned money, which I'm sure many VY supporters will do.

Then they were never real TEXANS fans to begin with.

Only one thing to say to these people: Don't let the door hit you on the way out. :BananaWav HAVE FUN WEARING BABY BLUE, TOO!

Okay, back to back sentences. You never said he has no class, but is classless?

Hmmmmmmm.

I never said you don't have a clue. I just said you were clueless. :ok:

lol:

ps. Some folks are reading way too much into Reggie's comments. C'mon, give me a break. Grow a hide. :howdy:

geezums people.....

Give TK a break, he already admitted he may have made too big a deal about the quote. Also, making a classless quote and being a classless person are completely different things (ex: making a bad play vs. being a bad player)

I think that now that the Texans have looked at Vince, they can now start negotiating with Bush and Joel Segal. I wouldn't be surprised if that process started next week. They no longer have to continue the charade that they are truly undecided on what to do. They brought both players in and can say that they have seen enough to make their decision.

So if there's no contract signed by Sunday, and the Texans are still continuing their "charade", we can assume Vince is still being considered??

In the Draft Bush camp, it really wasn't. I liked it. There is nothing unprofessional about this guy. At least he wore a suit to the "interview.":stirpot:

If a suit made you professional then . . . oh, I guess you knew that. Can I have it in the morning?

I said start the negotiation, not that he will be signed tomorrow.

Personality-wise:

Reggie Bush = LaDanian Tomlinson

Hopefully game wise, it will be:

Reggie Bush = LaDanian Tomlinson

He's right............ but never should have said it.


"I'm looking forward to changing their minds" something like that.

I'm not a Reggie hater, but that was very class-less, and unprofessional.

I don't think he meant it in any kind of snide way, I think he meant that he realizes a lot of the local fans like Vince Young and he intends to prove to them on the field that he is a good player and worthy of the #1 pick and win them over to be fans of his too, not that he is going to turn them against Vince.
