Texans | R. Bush excited to visit team
Wed, 5 Apr 2006 21:46:30 -0700

Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports USC RB Reggie Bush was excited to visit Houston to meet with the Houston Texans. Bush said, "I've been looking forward to this visit. I want to let everybody know who I am and what I am all about. I'm so excited to be here. I wish we could have started today. I'm hoping Houston will be my new home." Bush will spend time Thursday, April 6, meeting with Texans owner Bob McNair, offensive coordinator Troy Calhoun, running backs coach Chick Harris and many others in the organization.

In fact, they need to just take him right to his new home and show him around--it's a place called "The Endzone".

Chick Harris must think that it is Christmas. I attended a clinic that he did on running back play and drafting, and someone asked him about Reggie Bush, and he said nice things about our current running backs, but then said something like, I can never have enough playmakers to work with--he had a smile about a mile wide.

Well, when you know someone is way better than you.... Reggie, consider this your new-hire orientation. I think may be the the start of a beautiful relationship. You are the Chosen One.

Wouldn't matter. Even if the guy had Barry Bonds "enhanced" bat speed, Reggie could still just juke out ot the way, and leave a pair of smoking sneaker marks where he just was.

Reggie could even dodge a roundhouse kick from Chuck Norris

Seems fairly presumptious for Manfull to plainly state that Bush is "one of two the Texans are considering drafting with the #1" She then goes on to list Vince Young as the other #1 -- despite that no major mock draft or scouting department in the country has Vince Young at the #1 -- and not only that, but she does not leave room for other guys that could conceivably be taken by us, either with the #1 or via tradedown -- like Mario Williams, for instance, or others would say D'Brick.

Has it really become the foregone conclusion that we are drafting Bush? I was hoping for a few more weeks of this uncertain business. Makes for interesting if not extremely repetitive talk on the MB.

I'm a fan of Bush, Young, or Williams at #1. When VY said something similar to this he was ripped by UT haters saying he just wants #1 money. It is ok for Bush to say it though and I bet if Williams had said it he wouldn't have been ripped either. It just shows that there are some Texan fans that are against any player from UT. Love to hate on those UT players.

The Texans were totally transparent the last time we had a first overall pick and it was a foregone conclusion to the point that they didn't even waiver when Carr had an average Sr Bowl week. I don't doubt for a moment we are drafting anyone but Bush. I don't consider that real smart...but that's how they have done business in the past and looks like it is how they are doing it now.

Ditto, and add Griffin to that list. Also add Justin Blalock to teh list, even thought he won't be out till next year (I think he might be better then D'Brickashaw).

It's a foregone conclusion that Reggie Bush will be the first pick. What's yet to be determined is what team will own that pick. The only reason a team would trade up to #1 is to pick Bush. So the Texans don't lose a lot of bargaining power either way. The suspense of this pick and the much of the hope of trading it, went away when the Saints signed Brees.

Hmm good point. I wonder if Bush is doing some house shopping while in town as well? I was of the opinion that bringing Vince in was more of a professional courtesy than anything else -- as I don't see for a moment us drafting him -- but I still do not like that we have apparently not even seriously entertained a guy like Mario Williams.

I've read where some people don't like his motor, or that he takes plays off and doesn't work hard. I can't comment on that myself, but we didn't even go to his pro day workout did we?

All we are waiting for now is for Bush to get in a car accident wearing a Texans cap.
