It was Kubiak, even said he would still take Mario if he knew DD couldn't play the season.

I think that Mario was Kubiak's pick because he knew that the defense needed the most work.

Personally, I still think that both Bush and Young are going to be busts. I still think Mario was the best pick at #1.

BTW, I was one of the ones who thought we should trade down and get more picks. I was in the DBrick camp.

At the end of the year ... which will be greater ? The number of Texan wins or the number of sacks by Mario .

I think the D-line coach (Karmelowicz) really wanted Mario, but he had his best interest in mind rather than the team's best interest. I think the o-coordinator (Calhoun) wanted Bush as badly as the d-coordinator (Smith) wanted Mario, and Kubiak made the final decision.

Kubiak has more power with the Texans than anyone has had previously.

I still think that Mario was a good pick, but I don't think that Reggie and Vince are going to be busts at all.

It makes sense that it was Kubiak's choice. Frankly, he's had plenty of success with a mediocre quarterback and late-round running backs. And because he can't micromanage the defense, it makes sense to try to compensate with better personnel.

Kubiak's choice. Why? Because his ego told him he could succeed with ANY running back in his system just like Shanny. Very bad choice IMO.

The Texans need to draft football players and not athletes. They spend too much time eyeing beef cake at the combine and timing forty yard dashes. They need to pay more attention to how the players looked in the real games they played. If they would have done that simple thing Mario would not have been a first round draft pick. He did not tear up the ACC while at NCS. Among other things he took too many plays off. Well, guess what he is still taking plays off but he now has a fat wallet.

Well casserly defended that pick and said he made it so i tend to believe him why would he lie but he was also quoted as saying that if he knew DD was not going to play he would take bush.

Difficult year for a trade down with so much talent near the top of the draft.

In any event, Kubiak made the pick. IIRC, I read somewhere that Mario is the youngest starter in the NFL (he came out as a true junior). It's hard to depend so much on a rookie, especially one that doesn't have too many studs on the line to help out.

That being said, even if you are depending a lot on rookies, no DC should run a defense that allows nearly 500 yards per game.
