Default You guys want to see somthing Interesting?

I posted a Poll on this forum about 3 weeks ago as to whom you would rather see us take in the Draft , this was before the Rose Bowl the vote was way more for one than the other now it seems after 1 game alot of you have flip flopped , have a look ( by the way I voted with the majority )

That's pretty funny, actually.

A 25 to 6 ratio at the time...

all this young crap is exausting me. If the fans keep acting like this with such things as boycotts for not picking young, we will not have a franchise here for very long. Then after that, everyone in Houston will be crying because they want a football franchise.

well apparently no one in Houston will care if we dont have a franchise. If we dont take Young..no one in Houston is going to support the team anymore. They would no longer be worthy of the fanbase.. or some other such nonsense.

well...there'll be a few of us left...even if we don't *gasp!* draft Young. Might have to change my name and move and all...but hey, the NFL is worth it.

As exciting as this off-season is becoming, it does bog down with exhaustion. However, I've got a feeling (just a hunch now, no insider info) that Mr. McNair already knows who we are drafting, and it's only a matter of time before he reveals his cards and re-signs Carr to that extension.

I know this Poll wont change the Die hard Young lovers minds but i just wanted you to see how we are baseing our opinions on one game and dont say you didnt know Young was coming out in the draft , most of you had your mind made up right after that Texas game , dont get me wrong I would love to see Young as a Texan but Bush is the safest pick on th board

I think it quite hilarious that you think a vote of only 31 people is even worth mentioning. I didn't vote in that poll, and with several thousand people registered on this site, it looks like the majority chose not to vote. Personally, I didn't vote because I didn't think there was any way Young would come out, and I didn't want Bush at all. I personally don't like the Longhorns, and never have, but Young is a freak of nature. I believe Young will be an all-pro and Bush will never even come close. So, I think this whole thread is a joke.

And how many new "Texans" fans have been trolling the site since the Rose Bowl? Not that people can't join the message boards - just pointing out that a lot of the VY loyalists are "January 2006" members on the boards. Where were they before the Rose Bowl?

doesnt matter if it was 31 people who voted or 1,000 the results would have been the same the majority would have been for Bush that was the buzz on the board back then , so your reply that the post is a joke is your own opinion , I was merely showing what a difference a game makes

the only thing interesting about that poll is the lack of attention/ votes it got. Wow, a whole whopping 31 votes out of 3847 members. Yeah, alot of interest in that poll for sure. Nothing like a 0.8% result, yeah the decimal point IS in the right place, which makes it even LESS than 1% of the current members actually responding. Wow, what a truly interesting representation of the ENTIRE MB mentality...............NOT.

as pointed out by others, at the time of the question it was SPECULATION, due to Young giving no inclination of whether he was going Pro or not.

Lets really go out on a limb and take a poll on whether an elephant would be as fat if it had wings and could fly, why don't we.

I don't agree with that, because It was definite that reggie was coming out, and there was a lot of skepticism about young...Had some of us known young were to be coming out maybe they would have voted differently or, like my self...would have voted at all

ok again the poll said IF both where to come out in the draft " IF " and the ones complaining about there not being enough votes are obviously among the ones that have flipped sense then , besides I expected die hard Young suporters not to like the results and find somthing wrong

I didn't even bother to vote for your poll, so, so sorry, but unable to accommodate your 'flip flop' criteria. I am not a 'die hard Vince Young fan' either. I have actually seen him play in one game this year, the Rose Bowl. So, so sorry, but unable to fit that criteria either.

Like I said, I was interested in your poll alright. I was truly interested in how many people were NOT interested enough to even vote in it, yet all of a sudden you use to it to represent the entire MB voting for Bush.

Get real.
