Re: Guess Mac really wanted VY
#1 Mario was the top defensive player in the draft and our defense stunk due to a lack of talent.
#2 If the Texans would have taken Bush or Young we would have had over 60m spent on the offensive side of the ball and 25m wrapped up in three skill positon players - Carr, AJ and Bush or VY - on a 102m cap. Talk about being out of balance and not recognizing your weaknesses with a long term fiscal strategy.
Since the 2006 draft only one team has won the Super Bowl and the Texans, Saints and Titans were not that team. However, the Texans were the last team to beat the Super Bowl Champions which Mario had an impact on that game.
The draft was not about Mario. The draft was about getting better in the long term.
Impatience is a core competency for losers in my opinion.
