Default Troy Smith a Texan

Who thinks this is possible? Troy throws better than Vince Young (at least he did in college) and can run just as fast as Vince Young. I think we should draft him (also knowing that Darren McFadden won't be coming out this year). I think we could pick up Cedric Benson from Chicago with our second round picC, so we would have our running game intact there. We can do defense with the rest of our picCs. Who agrees with me?

Not I!!!

Troy Smith won't be there. If he is, there is a reason. Cedric Benson? I am not so sure about him.

If he falls to the 2nd round, I'd take him. I don't think he's as good as Vince Young, but he's pretty close.

Smith is good but I dont think he is near the talent level of Young.

Smith is nowhere near Young as a runner even though he has good speed.

And I think that Young was a better passer in college than Smith was.

Keep in mind that the skill position players at Ohio St are way better than what Texas had last year.

And Vince still threw for 3000 yds. Smith will need 500 yds in the championship game if he wants to do that.

Troy Smith is not VY, and I would hate for the Texans to draft him because Houston fans would expect so much out of him.

That is what my dad had said today, but I don't think that is true. Warren Moon did it in Houston.

No way we get Cedric Benson. I still think the Bears want to keep him. And I don't want him, I'd be happier if we kept Ron Dayne.

I like the idea of Adrian Peterson in the first round, and Troy Smith hopefully falls to the second round and we get him.

Our defense is really playing well with a bunch of young guys and a bunch of starters out. At the end of that game we were playing our #1, #4, and #5 corners with Lewis Sanders, Demarcus Faggins, and you can even count Chris McKenzie in there even though we haven't seen much of him. And on top of that we've got 4 DL out. And they're still playing well. Our defense will be strong next year. It's time to focus on offense.

I think we're a QB and a RB away from being a very competitive team.

My prediction:

Ohio State falls back by 17 points in the third quarter vs. Florida

Troy Smith leads them back for a win and a national title.

*checks message board*

DRAFT TROY SMITH
TROY SMITH IS GOD
GOODBYE DAVID CARR
BETTER THAN VINCE?!




Oh God.

Took the words right out of my mouth. A Vince Young comes along once in a lifetime, if that often. Troy Smith isn't close.

Our O-Line is bad because of injuries. If we can't get Benson from Chicago, we should try and picC up someone in free agency. Maybe we can try and pull in Rhodes from Indy.

I guess seeing the smurf getting crushed behind our line would make much beter entertainment than seeing the west coast guy getting crushed ? Good Grief.

Maybe they make up the diff by selling Smith Voo-Doo dolls with the pins included. Bring them to the game, fun for the whole family.

We can get quality offensive lineman in the later rounds. We don't need to spend a pick early on one. This draft will be deep with offensive lineman. We got two solid lineman in Eric Winston and Charles Spencer in the third round. I think we got there again in the third and fourth rounds again this year. But I would be disappointed to use a pick on a lineman in the first round when we have a shot to get someone like Adrian Peterson.
