Yes, the Texans should take Mario Williams so the Saints can get Reggie Bush.

I support this thread.

Edit:

The mods should make this thread a sticky.

Welcome Mario. If the Texans started the whole Mario thing as a smokescreen, their smokescreen has blinded their own eyes. He better be Manning/ Leinart's worst nightmare.

Geez, does Casserly have to write it on a wall in blood? How much clearer could he have made it? Now that these "official" reports are leaking through the cracks, maybe you'll start to believe?

Please stop drinking the Jonestown Kool-Aid.

The table setter? Far reaching more than a bit. RB doesn't know the blocking schemes for one and I hate to tell you but your precious RB WILL have to block if he's going to make the o-line a bajillion gazillion times better.

DD is a good back and he hasn't made the o-line better? Where is the logic in that statement?

The GAMES are won in the TRENCHES. Championships are WON by DEFENSE.

Texans | Still willing to deal pick
Fri, 28 Apr 2006 16:06:40 -0700

According to the NFL Network, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said the team is willing to trade down from the No. 1 spot in the upcoming NFL Draft if the right offer comes along.


I still believe that we are posturing... too much leaked information... Team McNair has their marketing hat on today.

Default Do do do do de doo do (falsetto) Under Pressure...

If we take Mario, I will be his biggest fan. Because he will need us.

I cannot imagine being the player chosen instead of Vince and Reggie. That would be a ton of pressure on a kid. A big kid, but still basically a kid. And one not used to Vince/Reggie pressure.

The expectations for high round picks is usually kind of silly, but the pressure on Mario would be sick. It would make the pressure on Babin to justify that trade up look like nothing.

Whoever we pick, I will support them and just get ready for the REAL season--some football, baby!

Excellent point. I believe the phrase is "careful what you wish for, you just might get it." In this case, he might not like what the expectations are.

I think they should offer Bush at least as much as they offer Williams. Not knocking Williams, but I think this is getting rediculous. I think I'm going to TRY to stay off the boards until after the draft. See y'all later.

Notice I spelled y'all right.

If this is true, then I have to give to give major props to Mr. McNair and Coach Kubiak. They could have easily give in to the outside pressure and take Vince Young or Reggie Bush. If they truly feel that this is the best decision for the team, then they have my full support.










I'm still for hoping for Reggie Bush

Mario - you came outta left field for me, gotta admit. At first it was Reggie after "Bush bowl" then it was Reggie v. Vince after Rose bowl... then onto Reggie v. you after Carr's extension. You came along at the end and overtook the previous "front runners". Congrats and get yourself that Steel blue suit and make us proud to be Texan fans. (Well, already am - but even moreso.)

Welcome to the Bull pen.

I am definitely smiling about this one, I would love to be all catty with the "I told you so"s but I will try to resist and answer whatever concerns/questions people have about Mario that I might be able to help with. There will be no trade downs, it has always been Mario vs. Bush and they are not going to pass on both of those talents for anyone else. MARIO IS COMING TO HOUSTON!!!! We need Monarch to construct one of his infamous posts but change it to a pro-Mario stance.
