Default Can't-miss Bush makes choice easy (John Lopez)


Quote:
IF you've been sniffling into your No. 10 Longhorns jersey since this Bush campaign gained steam and threw you into a blue state, stop it.

The decision has been made. To paraphrase NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue's April 29 comments, with the first pick of the 2006 draft the Houston Texans select Reggie Bush, running back, the University of Southern California.
Dry those tears. It's not about the Texans or anyone doubting Vince Young and never has been. It's about not finding so much as a hint of doubt in anything about Bush. It's about the NFL's greatest football minds studying and analyzing Bush in every way and not finding a flaw in his game or personality. Not so much as a wrinkle in his shirt. Not so much as a hair out of place or a conversation that does not include at least one, "yes sir."

Great article!

Can't wait to see this morph into a "trade Carr" thread.

He probably got inspiration for this article (and I didn't read the whole thing yet since I have class at 10) from dealing with Richard Justice on a daily basis for the last few weeks.

nice article. what else is left to say?

this guy is the Michael Jordan of football: he's got the talent, the poise, the charisma, and just an all-around focus on the game that is far beyond his years. he's the type ofplayer that can potentially re-define the NFL and transcend Randy Moss/Michael Vick/Etc.....you know, all the guys who are hyped but have not truly become the innovators they were hyped to be.

It's a no brainer! It would be like if the Cavs had opted not to draft LeBron!

Lopez is the only writer who liked Bush before the Rose Bowl and never jumped ship to the Vince camp.

Yeah because he won't let an emotional and irrelevant detail like VY being from Houston cloud his opinion on who the BPA is. It's Reggie Bush. PERIOD.

Nothing, but it is about marketability. Big corporations want the most clean cut person possible.

Reggie is like the Peyton Manning of RBs in terms of clean cutness

You're really stretching it here. I don't care how clean-cut a guy is -- the only thing that matters is if the guy is going to win games. And right now, the team needs a much stronger OL and defense for that to happen. RB was productive for them last year and they have a good QB. If they don't trade the pick and get what they really need, the Texans will have another series of bad years -- and that won't do much for Bush's "marketability."

If you can't stand Carr then get out, don't support the Texans please. Did Carr steal your girl or something. Anyways I think we need less Carr Haters and more supporters anyways. So please feel free to cheer any other team.

Why don't we pull a Mike Ditka and trade all of our remaining picks and next years No. 1 pick and draft Bush AND VY? Just thought I'd try a funny one.

I think it's pretty obvious that we are getting Bush when we are making threads about what is number is going to be already...

But the problem is LeBron was the top player. You think VY is the top player, while the rest of America thinks Bush is the top player. No irony really, just bias.
