Cool They chose the hard way

The Texans could have made this so easy. If they took Bush, fans would have accepted 6 or 7 wins next year as long as the team showed improvement. Having Bush would have gotten the fans excited about the team again.

With that being said, they took Williams. They now almost have to win 9 or 10 games next year. If not, Reliant will be half full by November, if not sooner. The environment will be similar to what it was at the end of last season. It seems like they could have avoided this, but they chose the difficult path. Being a fan, I hope it works. I just hope we're not in the same position (No. 1 pick) next year. This was the longest 3 1/2 months of my life.

So they arent looking for a player that was flashy enough to save them from another losing season? Instead took the player they thought would keep them from having a losing season..

I think i can live with that :P

Texans fans have to realize that we picked need over greed.

Need, because it's obvious our d-line was one of our most glaring weaknesses.

Greed, because we don't need another RB in Kubiak's system, and it would have been all about the 'sexy' pick and selling jerseys.

I like the fact that we got the stud DE and two of the top 10 OL out of college rather than just the stud OT.

picking a player first doesn't make the player a stud. they didn't like ferguson or justice. they like spencer and winston. Orlando Pace and Walter Jones weren't available in the draft.

He did play all of his games in the 05 season, so I'm not worried much about his injury.
