Calls for the #1 pick don't start when the draft clock starts. Teams had every indication that the Texans were drafting Reggie, and if they wanted him, they would have called beforehand. If anything else, the Texans' reputation for signing #1 picks early would have prompted teams to hit the panic button even earlier than Saturday morning. No one wanted Reggie Bush that bad, period.

Fisher may have said this about Mario, but it's fairly well documented that Fisher and Chow wanted Matt Leinart but were overruled by Bud Adams. Adams figured---and rightly so---that a great way to annoy Houston would be to rub the hometown boy in their face twice a year.

I dunno, but maybe you aren't giving Adams enough credit ? I'm sure he wanted to draft Houstons favorite son for sentimental reasons, but he
may instinctively have thought it was also a good football decision ?
Adams got another UT legend when he traded with TB to get the first
pick in the 1978 Draft, and that also turned out to be a shrewd move.

I never said taking VY was a poor move. As for giving Adams credit--you're right, I don't give him much. And I sure as hell don't give him credit for taking Earl. That was Bum Phillips' move all they way.
