82: No. 1 pick Mario Williams will help improve the Houston Texans (their defense was a dreadful 31st overall in 2005), but not nearly as much as Bush would have (and I'd say that even if Domanick Davis wasn't out for the season).

Apparently Reggie Bush can play defense now.

Actually it doesn't say Bush will help with the defense. Re-read it without anger towards the media.

Edit: 49: No one outside the Bay Area -- and not in a fantasy league -- can name four 49ers. (I'll even spot you Alex Smith and Frank Gore.)

This is one of those sad but true statements. I read this and said "Who is Frank Gore?"

Apparently there's another Texan fan obsessed with Reggie Bush.

Bush thread counter: 210
Mario thread counter: 50

Alex Smith, Frank Gore, Trent Dilfer, Antonio Bryant, Bryant Young, Arnaz Battle, Vernon Davis, Joe Nedney, and I think Ken Dorsey is still on the team, too.

That's what I got off the top of my head.

We all know Joe Montana, and Steve Young and Ronnie Lott and Jerry Rice, etc. I think he meant players on the current, horrible 49ers team.

I had Antonio Bryant and Vernon Davis, ... who is Frank Gore?:rolleyes:


:offtopic And Tack, how many of those 210 mention Mario Williams too?

In my reckoning, for every Reggie Bush thread there is a Mario thread because people will inevitably try to compare them.

That said, continue on with Niners commentary :shades:

Frank Gore is RB out of Miami. He was a 3rd or 4th round pick last year ended the season with something like 6 or 7 hundred yards. An awesome back coming out of highschool, he ran for 3000 yards his senior season, was supposed to be the next big thing, but in college he tore up both his knees, McGahee style, and has came back from it.

I can name a few, Kwame Harris LT, Shawntea Spencer DB, one of the most underrated MLB Derek Smith. Eric Johnson TE.

Fantasy football players had better learn the name Frank Gore, because he's about to bust out this year. He played well last year, but because the Niners are morons, they never let Gore surpass Barlow on the depth chart for starting RB, even though Barlow was horrible.

Now that Barlow is in New York, Gore is going to be the feature back, and I expect him to have a good fantasy year. Better than Yahoo has him ranked.

Franke Gore is also noteworthy because he had one of the worst Wonderlic scores ever. Doesn't stop him from running though, apparently.

Gore had trouble with any kind of mental activities, he's just not that book smart and still made it to Miami, I'll tell you one thing though, with all the crap that guy had to go through growing up and still working as hard as he has he must be a pretty good guy dumb or not.

I agree, the Eagles go to playoffs, in fact they have homefield advantage.

15-1 season, they go undefeated after losing to the Texans!

*And thanks for knocking down the other teams in our division along the way*

The NFC as a whole is starting to get more tough teams, and I think it will be a dog fight in the East, anyone of those teams could take it and with all the beating up on eachother I don't see a team from the east taking Wild Card Spots.

Moran Norris is a 49er. Also, didn't Gore have like three knee surguries in college?
