We are discussing this because YOU brought the subject up like it means something.

So what, he's from Houston. Is that actually supposed to be a basis for drafting the guy? I am amazed that you drop all pretension of football knowledge to be a homer for the guy.

I think you are reaching on this one.
Reaching for what? YOU keep stating that being a native Houstonian should mean something to the Texans, like Young has some blood honor to represent the city. If it meant that much to him, then why not stay in the city and represent the college that bears the name? I don't care that he went to Texas, and I don't blame him for doing so. But please don't try to make it out like he's such a hometown hero when he skipped out and went to Austin.

Your logic fails you here, because there is no spoon. I merely used your own argument against you, and as you see, there's not much sense in it to begin with.

Sometimes, you take the best player that gives you the best chance and build around that. Talk about being stuck in a box.


If Kubiak is that myopic, then we are probably in trouble. Thinking in new terms/concepts is more important than trying to prove an old model.

Example, Mario Williams. We picked for a position/situation and not the players involved.
Wha.....? Mack Brown redesigned his offense to take advantage of Young's strengths. Guess what? It was not a pro-style offense that he implemented.

Kubiak runs a version of the WCO, heavy on timing patterns. While there is certainly room for alteration, I don't think scrapping your entire offensive philosophy for one player is very wise.

And let's leave the straw man argument of Mario out of the discussion. Your cheap shot was unwarranted when talking about OFFENSIVE schemes and an offensive player like Young.

You have an agenda, and it is more and more obvious with each post you type. The 2006 draft is water under the bridge. The sooner you accept that reality, the sooner you can stop your myopic takes on this subject.
