The Houston Texans made great waves during the 2006 NFL Draft when they bypassed the obvious choice of running back Reggie Bush, whom everyone in the world thought the Texans were taking, and went with defensive end Mario Williams. There was a lot of teeth gnashing by Texans fans as Bush helped lead the Saints to the NFC Championship Game last season and Williams struggled in his transition to the pro game.

But things have changed a year later; Williams and the Texans are off to a fast start and its Bush and the Saints who are now struggling. The Texans, along with the Packers, Redskins and 49ers, are off to a great starts thanks in large part to their young defenses.

LOVE the dodge of association that seems to pop up in stories like this. Suddenly, it was "Texans fans" who were upset by/ridiculing/mocking the Mario Williams pick.

Wouldn't have been any of their publications, would it? Nah. Just "Texans fans."

Right.

To be fair and balanced, there was not exactly a party going on these boards when Mario was picked.

Absolutely true. Collinsworth isn't wrong..he's just only telling part of the story. Everybody piled on...not just Texans fans.
