Default Top 10 reasons not to draft Reggie

This just in...the top "10" reasons that the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie are:

Number 10..."Can you say Dominic Davis?"
Number 9... "We think a real LT might help"
Number 8..."He can't play Linebacker for us"
Number 7..."He can't start the other CB spot for us"
Number 6..."His too short to be that TE we need"
Number 5..."How about that Tony Hollings guy" (just kidding)
Number 4..."One Bush in Houston is enough thank you"
Number 3... "Casserly spent our money on Wade, Pitts and Coleman"
Number 2..."Some team will give their draft away to get him"

and the number one reason the Texan's will not be drafting Reggie is....
"Because Justice and McClain are certain we should draft him"

Go Texan's...the turnaround has already begun!

At first, I though this was a serious post, and was going to disect it.

But now I see that there is nothing serious about it.

Only 2 options for "day one draft" next year.

Draft reggie.

1. Reggie Bush RB
2. Jon Scott/Winston Justice/Daryn Colledge LT
3. Tatusi Lutui OG
3. Cedric Griffin CB

======================
Trade Bush for #1, #2 this year, and their #1 next year.

1. D'Brickashaw Ferguson LT (Winston did not impress me)
2. Michael Huff/ Darnell Bing S
2. Leonard Pope TE
3. Tatusi Lutui OG
3. Cedric Griffin CB

I'll buy those two quite nicely.

This is what Texans fans should be worring about, whether you draft Bush or trade for more picks the 1st round pick is going to help the team. It is what they do with the rest of the picks. Get some players who can help this team, not trade them away for unproven talent, or other team rejects like we have done for the past three years with the rest of day one selections.

None of these are good points since we aren't going to draft any of those positions with the first pick anyways. What's to say we can't get a LB later in the draft?

I believe the point of that part was we could trade away the #1 pick and likely acquire a player at each of these positions for him.

Sorry, what I was attempting to do (with a bit of humor so I don't have to cry about this season) was to point out that since the team has many needs that drafting Reggie will not fix ...only time will tell if a trade for the rights to him would in fact fill in those need positions. Go Texans!

Well do you still want Reggie if:

(1) Titans offer to swap their 3rd pick in the draft, the rights to Jeff Fisher as HC assuming a deal could be done and their 2nd this year.

(2) Jets offer to swap 1's and send us John Abraham along with their 2nd this year.

(3) Oakland swaps 1's and sends us Robert Gallery and their 2nd this year.

(4) Arizona swaps 1's and sends us Leonard Davis and their 2nd this year and next.

(5) Detroit swaps 1's and sends us Jeff Backus along with their 2nd this year and next.

I'm a fan of trading down anyways, but swapping with the Jets and picking up additional picks (more than just one 2nd rounder) and John Abraham would be great, or swapping with Arizona for additional picks (definitely more than one 2nd rounder, probably next year's 1st as well) and Leonard Davis would be nice. Both the Jets and Cardinals would possibly be interested in trading up to get Bush or Leinart (Jets more likely on Bush, Cards probably more likely on Leinart). The Jets deal would maybe be realistic, but I'm not sure the Cards would give up Leonard Davis since he is their only decent OL, but I definitely wouldn't mind him anchoring down our LG spot.

Yes, we can say it but we cannot spell it I guess, lol.

I heard this from Lance Zerlien on SR610 on one morning, not exact but you get the drift: "You dont pass up on Jordan because you have Clyde Drexler and risk taking Sam Bowie"

Trade Reggie for extra picks? We don't need any more rookies filling in key roles. We need a player that can impact the entire game of football for years to come.

We cannot continue to keep ignoring the problems we have on our roster. Bush is a phenomenal athlete and could end up being a very good RB, but we have an opportunity to fill a bunch of the holes on our roster and at some point (at least if we ever want to become a good team) we need to fill those problems.

What if we don't have as many holes as we seem to have? Then we pass up a great prospect for holes we may or may not have. You may think we have a bunch of holes but Dan Reeves (who has more football knowledge in his finger tip than you do in your entire body) believes that the talent is not the problem.

Neither Pope Bing or Huff will be in the 2nd. If Bing comes out then you might get LaRon Landry in the 2nd, but thats if your lucky.

What most of you dont understand is our problem this year was youth. We need to hit the free agent market and bring in some veteran leadership for our defense. The losses of Glenn and Sharper were way to much for our defense. You cant just trade down and draft for need when you have a awesome impact player like Bush there. Davis has been a very good back for us but almost any running back in this league can get 1000 yards but his biggest problem is he cant stay healthy and to me when you keep having to play his back-up as your starter there is a problem. Plus you could probably get maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder for Davis and then try to trade up in the draft to get a need and still get Bush.

why do ppl put a 3rd rate sport in basketball to a 1st class sport in football. The dynamics are totally different.
