Default The 5 Stages Of Grief (where are you?)

DENIAL --- WTF!? No, this is just a smokescreen. This can't be true. Until Tagliabue stands up there and says we're taking Williams I won't believe it.

ANGER --- ARE YOU ****ing SERIOUS!!!! We just passed up the greatest prospect in the last 10 years for Mario $#%&ing Williams???!!! THREE ****ING MONTHS OF VINCE VS REGGIE AND THIS IS WHAT YOU GIVE US!!!!! **** it, I'm a Titans/Cowboys fan. Cancel my season tickets!!

BARGAINING --- Ok, if we trade the rest of our picks, plus all of our picks for the next three years, plus Bob McNair's horse so we can move up and take Bush or Young I'll keep my tickets and remain a Texans fan.

DEPRESSION --- OH...MY...GOD. We just passed on Bush AND Young. We are the ****ing laughing stock of the sports world. I'm embarassed to even say I'm from Houston right now. I feel like I'm about to puke.

ACCEPTANCE --- Ok. It's been 48 hours since I found out we were taking Mario Williams. He's going to be a stud on our D-Line. We still have Davis, Johnson and Moulds on offense. With the addition of Williams, Ryans and Weaver our defense might actually be able to stop the run next year. Everything is going to be okay. Maybe Bush and Young will both be busts and we'll look like freaking geniuses in three years. Take a deep breath...exhale.

You forgot to add one that isn't really a stage of grief...

Excitement.

Even if Bush and Young are the best in the class, if the Texans become winners it won't matter. There are always going to be great players that don't play for the Texans. If the Texans can become one of the elite teams you'll be happy to watch them come here and lose to the Texans' powerhouse team led by an awesome defense.

I went straight to acceptance.....Williams is the best Defensive player in the draft, we got two oline and a very good OLB.

While a shock on Friday night, I immediately went to acceptance. There is no point crying over spilt milk, and nobody knows how this draft will truly work out until the team takes the field.

I'm glad that Coach Kubiak is helping out the defense, to be honest. I was concerned that he might fall into the trap that other offensive minded head coaches find themselves in by concentrating too much on one side of the ball.

Acceptance!! It makes no sense for me to be angry at everybody over something that I have no control of. Can't wait for the season to get started!!!

I'm accepting. I can't wait for training camp to get started and see what the new coaches, new system, new players, and old players are going to do.

I never will find ACCEPTANCE for this pick, Im not sure which waterhead retard made this choice, but this is ridiculous. Im sure Mario will be a good player, but to pass on a ONCE in a LIFETIME talent like Bush is mind boggling. He would instantly make the whole offense better. He would free up the recievers, make the O-line better instantly just because they wouldnt have to hold their blocks as long and he would give David the safety outlet that can take it to the house anytime he touches the ball. For all those that say defense wins championships, I say look at the Cowboys of the 90's. Offense baby, offense. We had a chance for our own triplets and the chance for immortality. Now, we are just the laughing stock of the NFL. Again! The Texan braintrust (use that term lightly) has repeatedly said Mario "has the potential" to be the next Reggie White. Potential? I dont want potential. I'll pose this question. Would you have rather had Barry Sanders, Gayle Sayers, Emmitt Smith or Reggie White? I dont recall Reggie scoring that many TD's. This is going to go down as one of the great draft brainfarts of all time.

Bush has been a virtual "highlight film" every year since Jr.High. Super Mario had a very nice half season.

He may not score TD's but I will bet he will stop a few,and cause some havoc in opposing teams backfields. All these college players come out with 'POTENTIAL" till they prove themselves at this level. If you don't like the way things are going, I see this is your first post....You could make it your last!

I am NOT knocking Mario or his talent or potential talent. I'm knocking the thought process that Texan Mgmt demonstrated at this crucial time in our rebuilding. We can agree to disagree.

This year's draft addressed two of three problems;

a) no defensive pass rush ( bush nor young can fix this)

b) no pass protection (young can't fix that, nor can bush)

c) 3 and out offense... ( this would be the only reason to draft bush or Young)

I hope you and your kind are wrong, but also hope your thinking extends to the PSL holders so I can get better seats. It is simple for me...defense wins championships and we play Indy twice a year and have lost EVERY year.

By SIGNING our first round draft choice, we will able to focus on getting this NEW defense working...

See you at the game, Cuz

whatever happened to drafting talent over position? i am almost as shocked today, as i read these posts, as i was yesterday when mario was officially announced. we, as texans fans, have a right to be outraged by this pick. you guys can spin this thing as much as you want, but the bottom line is passing on reggie and vince is unjustifiable.

will you be saying that as Williams flattens Mr Young? Nope didn't think so. Yeah Bush might have been the BPA but Mario helps the team more. Lets see how much playing time Bush and Young get next year.
