i like bill's pieces but man did he ever own himself here

First, they passed on the next Gale Sayers (Reggie Bush) to take a project defensive lineman (Mario Williams)
Now it looks like the dumbest sports decision of the past 25 years and that's before we find out Reggie Bush's ceiling, both as an impact running back and personality. I just find the whole thing to be amazing. In a weird way, I'm glad it happened. Incompetence is always more interesting than competence. So thumbs up, Houston Texans. Well done. You're the sports version of Enron.

apparently reggie is a bungelow fan.. somebody should probably get onto bill to write a follow-up piece:headhurts:

what a difference 6 months makes..id like to say id called it decently

btw you guys realise kubiak is saying that stuff because mario must obviously be pulling his weight and trying his best so kubiak wants that recognised (similiar to what he did with travis in pre-season... you know when all the 'experts' on this MB were still calling him a 'slug' etc)

was that really worth wasting a post over a minor mistake of an expression in my post?? you know i meant hes trying the best he can..

anyway im not going to assign him to the scrap heap... usually physical tools + proper attitude= good things in the end

some other fun threads regarding mario

Man. Some of those posts boggled my mind. It's weird to see a lot of the negative nancy usernames dont' even post here anymore.

Man, I remember how annoyed I got at the message board when every other thread was so pessimistic. I'm glad that's all behind us!

LOL!!! This was my thread. I admit I was wrong. You have to have an opinion to be able to be wrong. I have been right and I have been wrong before. I was wrong on this one. But I did post that it was a marathon and at that point, Reggie and vince were ahead. But Mario has caught them since and lapped them But remember, it is a marathon!!!

I remember some people posting conspiracy theories that the NFL made us pass on Reggie so New Orleans could get him and fix the city. Well, chalk that up as another screw up... geaux saints. :)

No that was Atlanta and Chris Paul. David Stern is a genius.

I kind of liked Monarch. If nothing else he was great for a good laugh.

It appears most of, if not all of the people severely trashing MW are no longer here.

I didn't post in a single one of those threads. I wonder why??:)

This was my favorite!


Come on Johnyboy....Why would the coaching staff come out and say they made a mistake by drafting him? He was lazy in college, and he's lazy now but with 54 million reasons....He's a rookie. He missed a month in the summer because of an infected toe, Hasn't practiced in a month. What the heck is he going to be like in 3 years? There's always an excuse....I'll quote the great Lawrence Taylor "When your an all pro, you gotta play when your hurt baby".
Where the 15 sacks I heard about when they drafted him. It's gonna take him 3 years to get that?

NO only 2! :cool:
