Rick had nothing to do with the 2006 draft.
Contrary to popular belief the 2006 Texans was actually orchestrated by Charlie Casserly. It was Charlie who convinced Bob and Gary to pass on Reggie Bush and take Mario. And it was Charlie who talked Gary in to drafting Owen Daniels. The reason the Texans were not interested in VY and Leinart was Kubiak believed he could win a SB with David Carr and the Texans had already paid Carr a $10 million Bonus 2 months before the 06' draft.

NO, but I was calling calling for Bob McNair to HIRE Jim Harbaugh after the 2010 season (see houston texans message board). And for the record, my wish list is for Bob McNair to HIRE Oliver Luck as the GM for 2014 and David Shaw as the new Texans Head Coach in 2014.
