I'm a superstitious guy so Schaub and Williams over a guy who will miss most of the season for the Madden cover.

Was it worth it VY????

I have no problem with the poll. And you shouldn't either. Its a simple thing to read the thread and move on

First, you have no business telling us that we shouldn't have any problem with the poll. No more than I should try and tell you that you should.


Second, America still thinks we have an obsession with having passed on VY. To wit...



I guess Tank's right, some of us still do.

Its just that some of us would like to move along into the future and not speculate on what might have been. There's no way to know what would have happened if we'd drafted VY. He could have broken his leg, a la Charles Spencer in training camp, and like Spencer, been still on the PUP list.

Great another thread where people can re-argue about whether or not they want to re-argue about the draft some more. Whoo-hoo.

I think it is time to quit with the what ifs and deal with the here and now.

VY is NOT a Texan, RB is NOT a Texan.

Mario and Matt ARE Texans.

We should show our support for them and leave all this what ifs to the Titan or Saints board or at least the NFL forum.

You know, when I started this thread I imagined overwhelming support for Matt and Mario. I agree wholeheartedly that we are better off without vince and I had absolutly no intention of setting off this chain of OMG . I just thought to myself, "looks like it turned out to be a blessing in disguise" when I watched Matt and Mario on Saturday, and I wanted to see how many others agreed. I'm sorry that I touched on a subject that we all had finally put to rest. This was not my intention and we can all just leave the thread and idea alone forever.

GO TEXANS

Do you guys remember who was left in the second round when Atlanta picked for us this year? Just assume we picked who you would have taken with that pick and vote.
Here's my take:

Taking Vince Young probably alters the entire NFL. Thus, we would not have drafted Jacoby Jones because drafting Vince Young means that we probably take a higher-profile WR in this year's draft. Heck, we might have taken Ted Ginn Jr. instead of Amobi, choosing to draft d line in the second round.

See what I mean? Your attempt to play "what if?" gets real complicated because it's sort of like taking a time machine back to 1962 to stop JFK from getting shot. Then what happens to the rest of history? It's radically altered because an "alive JFK" alters what happens.

I know this might seem laughable to 99% of you, but I really do believe that we cannot know for sure what happens if VY or RB plays here. Maybe they would have stunk it up here? You just don't know.

So.....your "what if?" games are rendered useless.

Thanks you for wasting our time.
