Default "I want 'Texans' on my chest" ~ Vince Young

Does Reggie Bush want to be a part of the Texans franchise this badly?
____

"I'm praying about it," he said. "I have no idea what's going to happen, but that's what I'm hoping for. I want 'Texans' on my chest. I want to be No. 10. I want to wear the blue and red. I love Houston. That would be so nice. If it doesn't happen, I'm still going to love Houston."
___________

No place like home

...

He would love to play for the Texans. He danced around the topic when he first declared himself for the NFL draft. Now he's upfront about wanting to play for his hometown team. Badly.

"I'm praying about it," he said. "I have no idea what's going to happen, but that's what I'm hoping for. I want 'Texans' on my chest. I want to be No. 10. I want to wear the blue and red. I love Houston. That would be so nice. If it doesn't happen, I'm still going to love Houston."

It's almost incomprehensible the Texans would pass up someone so good. He has more playmaking ability, more leadership skills and more of a history of winning than anyone they've had. He'd give the franchise a buzz it has never had.

He might get his wish, if he goes to the Titans and we play him twice a year. I am sure a LB or two would Autograph it there for him at no charge.

I think it's awesome, for someone with so much talent, to want to play for Houston.... whatever the reason.

I truly believe it's a win/ win with Reggie or Vince, but VY's desire to play for his hometown is really special. Kubiak and his guys will make the right decision for the Texans, but if they do go with Bush it will be tough to watch Vince play for the Titans.

At any rate this whole 06 draft business is really getting the excitement factor way up for the Texans and that is great for the organization.

It's a nice sentiment, but I wouldn't get your hopes up about it. Nobody really knows what the FO is thinking, but all indications are that we'll keep Carr and go another route.

It'll probably be a decision that we'll someday regret...but hey, that's life.

Hate to get out the gas can, but this whole business of the CBA has had me thinking that the business model totally changes with the prospect of an uncapped year in 2007. Wins will bring fan's wallets no matter whose name is on the back of the jersey, but if spending on top talent has no ceiling in 2007 you must get a return on investment in all lines of business for that one player.

It comes down to Carr's contract, and therefore I think VY is not out of the picture yet. But I am still a trade down guy.

Uhh, no. He just wants the #1 overall status & $$$ that goes with it. Bush stated during Heisman week that he wouldn't mind playing in NY. If the Texans were picking 10th, Vince would still rather play here IMO. That is special. I wonder how many other players are "praying to God" to be in Houston? Not many.

That's not my point ~ it wasn't my intention to start a negative thread about who wants to play for the Texans the most. I apologize for not making that clear.

I should have just said something like ~ ďArenít you guys impressed by how much Vince wants to be a part of the Texans?Ē

I hope this post clears things up.

If he ends up playing for the Titans, I can see a good rush resulting in Texans all over him

That's a little dramatic, don't you think? He's a good 3 years from being a starting pro qb. By then Reggie will have lead us to the playoffs at least once.

That kind of thinking has quickly become my #1 pet peeve.

When I hear the reasons for drafting Bush and passing on Vince Young I usually hear the terms "quick-fix" or "viable playoff team" screw a quick-fix or being a "viable" playoff team, thats the philosophy of a loser. I'll wait a year or 2 longer (not that, that is even the case) if it means that we could be a SUPER BOWL contender.

Carr is going to be good under Kubiak's tutledge, i don't think that there is any doubt about that, he is capable of putting up the type of numbers that Plummer did this year. But the bottom-line is that you don't win super bowls with good qbs who aren't playmakers/difference makers unless you have a super badass defense. The Broncos have a pretty damn good defense and couldn't get it done with a pro-bowl (good, but not a difference maker) Jake Plummer in the same scheme as us. There is no reason to think the Texans' defense will be special, on par with Denver's or better, any time in the future (it's not like we just hired some known badass defensive coordinator).

So go for the gold, draft Vince Young. Lets shoot for the super bowl and doing something special, not just to make the playoffs and be one and done every year

And you GUYS think women are sentimental!! J/K!!

I believe it is a very admirable trait that Vince wants to play for his home team, who wouldn't?? Think he might be interested in becoming a RB?? Unfortunatly, wishes don't always come true, and prayers are not always answered the way we want them. We just have to believe that the POWERS THAT BE, whether that is GOD above, or the Texans FO, will send the right man to HOUSTON come April.

Maybe we should draft the entire U of H team. I'm sure they would all love to play for the Texans.

And to add to travfrancis' great post, look at the Edge situation. He has been in the league 7 years and will be 27 at the start of next season and now teams are shying away from him because backs dont have that long of shelf-life. Bush already has the durability question and if he never answers it, are we renting him for 7 years??? And to get more theoritical, lets say we make improvement the next 2 years but are still sub-.500, are we going to have Bush for a 5 year period when this team can finally make some noise in the playoff picture and then let him go like Edge???

Bush, Young, or trade down ~ Kubiak & company will make the right choice.

The only reason VY wants to play in Houston is because with that #1 pick comes a minimum $45million contract. Same reason Leinart and Bush want to be #1. Is Houston his hometown, yeah, but that doesn't mean he's more interested in the $$ than he is the "playin' for the hometown feeling". The question you got to ask yourself is this:

Would VY say no to the NFL if the Texans do not draft him?

NO!!!!

It's about the $$$, and has been for a while.
