Default FLASHBACK decision to take Mario Williams.

I just ran across this youtube video.....I've never seen it before, but it gives you a perspective on how beat up our F.O. was at the time for chosing Mario over Reggie.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQI4V...en&sitesearch=

After watching the clip, Richard Justice needs to get bent and offer the Texans (especially Bob McNair) a public apology and, Justice needs to seriously give up his football reporting ambitions.

I think Justice is fickle and ignorant, but I don't see how this video reflects that.

Most (not even close) of the Texans fans, local and national media felt the Mario williams pick was a mistake, so Justice has plenty of company in that apology line.

Me too. I didn't castrate them over the pick, but I felt they needed something on offense and Bush was "can't miss."

I hope Mario keeps taking revenge on all us doubters. Next year is going to be damn exciting to watch.

That's a good article on Mario. Thanks!

That would be something if he won Defensive Player of the Year!

Default Re: FLASHBACK decision to take Mario Williams.

I had been wanting them to trade down and get an O-lineman for awhile. Then I started to get used to the idea of Reggie Bush and what he could do with DD. (Not knowing ofcourse that DD would become DD/W and never be heard from again.) When they did announce that the pick would be Mario, I didn't understand the pick but didn't get upset either.

Default Re: FLASHBACK decision to take Mario Williams.

I wanted D-Brick, because that was a major issue IMO at the time. However, I assumed we would take Bush and was sort of "OK" with that as he was supposed to be such an offensive weapon. When on Wednesday (IIRC) before the draft, we said we were taking Mario, I wasn't upset, but was curriouse about him and why. After looking at him and our team and what he could bring to the game, I thought "This could be a good thing and time will tell". I would be pretty hard at this point to say it wasn't the right pick. Reggie is flirting closely with the bust tag (this year should define it). VY is not panning out as some thought and also is flirting with the bust tag, but IMO has a better chance of avoiding it and getting to the journyman level for most of his career. D-Brick has been ......average at best. So, given all of that, Mario was and is far and away the best pick talent wise and for this team.

I submit, that since you live in the Dallas area, you have no idea what the "local fans" thought of the Mario pick. As a matter of fact, a lot of us were dead set against Reggie, didn't think Vince was the right QB for our style, and that Mario was probably the best pick, as has dang well been proven. All you 20-20 hindsighters make me laugh.

I almost wanted them to refuse to choose anyone.

"We're not making a pick until somebody offers us a trade." lol

Obviously, Mario was the right choice.

Sorry man, but I have to disagree here. All of my co-workers and most of my football watching buddies, and family wanted either Reggie or Vince (I was like edo, I wanted D'Brick).

I don't know anybody that was deadset against Reggie, and most people who didn't think Vince would get picked because we had just extended Carr (Not that they DIDN"T want Vince, because most people that believed this did want Vince).

Didn't the draft party have a whole bunch of jeers and boo's added to the mix as well when the pick was made?

I live in the Houston area (Spring), and spend way too much time talking about the Texans and listening to Sportstalk radio. There's no question that he's right. There were some Mario supporters, but the vast majority of the fans - and casual observers - ripped the Texans a new one.

I wasn't happy with it, and was one of those thinking Bush was the best pick. I like to think the difference between me and numerous others in this community was that once they made a pick I didn't like, I immediately started hoping that Mario and the Texans would prove me wrong. There were way too many folks who I perceived as hoping VY and Reggie would prove that the Texans were stupid just so they could say "I told you so". Shallow and shortsighted, most of them will be on the Mario bandwagon if he can continue what he started last year.

I went from screaming at the tv as Reggie ran up and down the field "The Texans better get him!" to "We need to look hard at the cat from NC St.

I took alot of abuse for that. Especially from the horned crowd who said VY walks on water. Do you think Titan fan would approve a trade of VY for Mario straight up right about now?

The smarter ones would. That being said, I bet most of the messageboard go'ers would probably be like "No Mario is a bust lalalalalalala I can't hear you"
