Default Justice on Rome Show!

Laying it down!!!

Stating the obvious, that we had negotiated soley with Bush until Thursday night. We had no plans on going any other way until they realized a deal with Bush would not be finalized until after the draft.

Cass had little to no input on the final decision.

We followed the how to blow it blueprint to the t

lol

this board never ceases to amaze me with its apologetic banter.

Justice is just stating the truth and it hurts.

we had 4 months to prepare for the draft, and up until 2 days before the draft we had ONE player pegged, and back peddled because we wanted our pick signed the day of.

what kind of boneheaded logic is that? their own actions are embarrasing. they are bassically saying we will choose a lesser option on financial means only.

Well then. hmmm. Bob McNair on 610 said the opposite. So somebody has the story incorrect. He said that we were close enough with either one to close the deal and that to get things finished we needed to concentrate on one or the other.

I'll trust Mr. McNair over that flip flopper.

It's sad to say but the FO blew the handling of the #1 pick.First off to drive up the value of the by talking up prospects ie Bush,Wlliams, Young and Ferguson.Do not announce who you will be drafting before the draft!If you do this no one will be willing to trade with you.
I do not have a problem with the pick just in the way it was handled.

They went into discussions with Williams on Thursday. They had been negotiating with Bush for months. Mcnair stated signability was a key concern prior to the draft, almost giving away that they were going away from Bush for that reason.

Face the facts, we let finances make this pick.

BTW, guys... now the Around The Horn guys are slamming us one by one.

We are the laughing stock of the football community.

Obviously the fishwrap hack has more insight to the Texans than the team's owner...yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I hold the opinions of quite a few of our forum members with much higher regard than the flip/flap that comes from Chronicle writers. Those guys have agendas, while forum members just state it like they see it. I appreciate honesty over sell outs like Justice & McClain.

Mcnair was unhappy Bush couldnt come to terms by draft day, and let it get personal.

Great front office we have here.

We are a joke.

Can the Chronicle hire Michael Smith, the only "head" that understands the game of football?

That is awful you feel that way. Maybe you could go say some nice things about another team for a while or is that not your method of operation?

You brought nothing here other than reporting on reporters, great stuff.

I wonder when Bush will sign with New Orleans? It was no secret that he was campaigning to go to New York. He also made coments about "getting used to loosing" if he comes to Houston. Now who is the Joke on us?

I dont' think so. Look at every Superbowl winning team (that is right I said every) and the all have at least one dominate pass rusher. Not so with running backs and quaterbacks.

This pick took "stones" and it ROCKS.

McNair made a great choice and if you are not able to see it now that's ok We will all still be here supporting our team!!!

It won't be long till we are winners!!!

I also made a thread draft day that this was our best draft ever, and i firmly belive it. As a whole i love this draft. I also like Williams as a player.

But, we blew the first pick. The front office even knows they blew it. They did an about face on Bush two days out only because they werent going to have his contract finalized by draft day. I may be the only one who thinks thats absolutely absurd, and im prepared to take the heat on this homer board, but i dont think anything im saying is out of the box. The majority of the civilized world believes we made a bonehead move, and its not odd that this board just ignores it.

You may want to wait to say that it was a bad move until you see what Bush puts N.O. through.

Of course, Richard Justice knows it all. Everything that the organization is saying, before and since ... that's all BS. Just like Richard Justice knew we were going to pick Mario Williams. He had the inside track on the "negotiations breakdown" then.

Richard Justice says controversial or stupid things because he's not good enough as a writer to make reality interesting. Talk about apologetic banter. Tell Uncle Richard we say hi.
