As someone in the game thread mentioned...if the Texans took Bush or Young they probably would have looked at a DE with the 1st pick in the 2nd round. I'd rather have DeMeco and Mario than Bush or Young and someone else. They'll both be very good, but DeMeco's going to be one of the great ones. Well, in my opinion at least.

(edit) also mentioned above. I really should read the thread before commenting. Oh well.

Everything you just listed could be said for the texans

the texans didn't want to win, missed FG, too many forced (to say the radiers TOS weren't forced is laughable) turnovers to count....its all a wash

The Texans were stuck in bad Field position all day, especially in the first half, if was the texans DEFENSE that stepped up and made difference.......it was the texans DEFENSE THAT WON US THE GAME.

That was me..... and its true, every team making the switch either drafts a DE high or picks up a stud.

Mario+DeMeco = a great Texans defense and what will be the core of this team

Vince and Bush backers either switch teams or get in line

Mario was not a bad pick.........just different philosophy in schemes and need

Default Re: The day mario got lapped...

So let me get this straight. Bush's TDs don't count because:

1. They were less than 10 yards (all of which required more skill than any RB on the Texans posseses.)
2. They came against the 49ers- (Who would absolutely roll the Texans if they played).

But, Mario's two tackle zero sack performance against the worst team in the NFL is impressive because he forced a few holding calls?

I'm sorry, Bush has been somewhat disappointing but his presence makes everyone on the Saints better because he must be accounted for on every play, kind of like Lundy...er well not so much Wali, but you get the point.

Bush has hit his stride the last few weeks. He's not dancing as much and hitting the hole. This might not go down as disgraceful as taking Bowie over Jordan but it's pretty bad.

No one on the Texans can honestly say that Bush wouldn't have energized this apathetic fan base. You have a QB most of the fans hate and no playmakers save Johnson. And honestly, has Mario really improved the defense? Would the Texans be 2-10 without Mario? I doubt he's made much difference. Bush by my count has been worth at least two Saints wins and countless more when you factor in how he opens up the defense for everyone else.

And unlike Vick who is an illiterate thug unworthy of all the attention, Bush is an intelligent soft-spoken humble guy that has put the Saints on the map. Where are the Texans in the public eye? Exactly.

I'm sorry but the filling holes goes out the window when you have a special player like vince. You could see that he was a special player in the rose bowl last year against usc. You can turn your draft board upside down on draft day. when you have a player like Walter payton, eric dickerson, or john elway, you take them. Vince young is that type of star. Everybody saw it in the Rose Bowl. Everybody in the country saw it.

I watched the Saints-49ers game myself, and Reggie was truly spectacular and exciting on a few plays, but truth be told he's still the Saints backup running back behind Deuce. Bush had less than 40 yards on 10 carries, while Deuce had way over 100 yards rushing.
Bush's bread and butter position more and more looks like pass receiver.
