The only argument is why are we going to spend the #1 pick and $40+ million on a part-time RB, part-time WR? Sure we can get a functional OL later in the draft, but how is Bush going to fit into our team well enough to warrant such a high pick?

So you might as well at least start with the best patch that is available, bush.

Again, 1 pick is 1 pick. They can still address weaknesses with their 6 or 7 other picks.

Offensively they need a RB. They need a OL too, but a rookie OL isn't gonna help much IMO. That line is horrible, and they are in desperate need of some good veteran linemen (you guys shoulda signed John Tait and/or Ruben Brown this past offseason, both have been probowlers mutliple times, the bears signed them both in the offseason and our line has been great).

You guys have a WR in Johnson. QB is still in the air. So a very good or great RB would improve things. Having that deadly of a RB may give Carr as much additional time in the pocket as would the top rookie OL.

You could go either way, theres no right way really. But I just look at it like you don't pass on Jordan, not anymore. Jordan was passed over, and ever since its been the reminder of why you don't pass on such a great prospect. I couldn't see anyone passing on Lebron, no matter what their need was.

Well Bush is the greatest college player to come out in a long long long time. Kinda hard to pass on that IMO. I'd rather be the GM that took him and he ended up a bust and it ended up setting the franchise back 1 season, as opposed to the GM that passed on him and Bush goes on to be a 2 time league MVP, top 5 all time NFL leading rusher, multiple super bowl's, multiple pro bowls.

How often are veteran OL released? Not very often at all. Our attempts at doing that last year yielded Victor Riley, one of the worst LT experiments in the history of the NFL. That leaves having to pick up a decent OL in free agency and probably overpaying them to come here or else drafting the best ones available in the draft.

Default Reggie Bush High School highlights

CLICK ME TO SOME OF THE BEST FILM ON A RARE TYPE OF PROSPECT

just go there, click on sports from the menu to the right, and you should see one of the choices says "reggie bush HS highlights". For those interested, enjoy.

I'm just saying....a guy like Bush is rare. The worst could happen is, barring injuries, is that he'd turn out to be a good back cause the talent he's got warrants him that. But....IMO....this guy will turn out to be one of the greatest and having him, Johnson, Carr, Robinson....and a few more tweaks at personnel....we have a superb team. Last year the Texans were 7-9....a few games away from playoffs. A guy like Bush, a coaching staff make-over, along with a TE........offensively.......WATCH OUT!

Coaches can affect players drastically. Just look at what a big difference coaching can do in the ex-Browns D-line that is now in Denver. When they were in Cleveland.......wow.....piss poor D-line. They go over to Denver, a complete turn around. Everyone though Shanahan was out of his mind. But a good coach can make things happen. I believe that once we get some competent coaches here.....even our O-line can improve.

We cannot however pass up on Bush......we just can't!

Not this video again!! I'm glad to see Reggie Bush can break tackles on 15 year old boys, how does that translate to his abilities in the NFL? Why not bring up middle school, pop warner, and pee wee home videos? At least put together a highlight tape of his college plays.

If I find college tape on him...I'll post it. That's raw talent....sheer raw talent. Imagine at a pro level. You already know what he does as a college player.

Your forgetting that this is what he does against his peers...dont think that he's playing lower level guys...these are guys that are supposed to be on his level and if he dominates them...then guess what...they are still his peers...he's playing against a few of them now. So your reply was a pretty lame attempt at trying to convince people that we should not get him.

I dont care either way. He would be a great addition and a rare talent to pass on, but I also understand our need to fix our O line...that being said...I hope we draft well and draft bpa at whatever spot we pick in...lets just hope its #1 or 2.

I understand that but at the same time there are hundreds of thousands of high schoolers that play football and maybe 2% of them make it to the NCAA, and another 2% of them make the NFL, so maybe 1 out of 2500 high school players are NFL quality. While Bush was going against people in his age in that video, I hardly call them his peers. I do acknowledge that Bush has great talent but I truly do not believe he would be the best draft pick for this team.

Well then this championship game between USC and Texas should be very interesting. No one doubts that there are plenty of nfl prospects on both teams. If Bush goes off in this game there shouldn't be anymore doubters and he'll solidify his position as the #1 pick in the draft regardless who has the pick

I've wondered if Capers has some sort of medical condition that causes the mouth opening thing other than just having a season full of moments worthy of duh face. Like if he had some terrible sinus problems or something.

Or perhaps he is fighting bruxism. Bruxism is the medical term for teeth grinding, gnashing or clenching of teeth and is often caused by severe stress. I am sure coach has great reason to be feeling lots of stress in his position.

One of the therapies for bruxism is behavior therapy--telling yourself, "Lips together, teeth apart." Perhaps, Coach Capers is doing the teeth apart thing, fighting the inevitable bruxism of his job, but forgetting the lips together part of the equation.

As Texans fans, you too may have engaged in gnashing of teeth as well. It is likely that our fan stress will go unabated for the near future. So, as a public service, I am offering a link about bruxism, its causes and treatment:

Lips together, teeth apart.

I like Capers, and I really do wish the best for him. My friend who is a Panthers fan said when we hired him that he really is a good training wheels head coach.

Agreed. I don't doubt Bush will be the #1 pick or at least in the top 2-3, but I don't think the Texans will take him. Either way, we'll have to wait four weeks for the BCS game then see how the combine and everything else goes.

Do you think bush will attend the combine? I think he has proven enough to be a sure #1 pic and the combine would not help his stock at all.
