    In honor of Mexican_Texan's idea of the game for the rookie of the year and the previous Carr Avatar bet, I propose another game. Lets have a lets choose the Texans first pick game. Everyone makes a pick out of four choices: Vince Young, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, and Trade Down. Once the picks are in, all the people in the specific camps will choose avatars that reflect their choice. Then at the draft, the people with the choice that the Texans end up doing, get bragging rights. The people who lose must change their avatar to the winning choice for 3 weeks! Who's in?!

    By no responses I take it that nobody is interested?

    I'd be interested, but it does not seem completely organized. The trade down option is very broad.

    Yeah, the trade down one is broad. I was thinking of just doing a Vince vs Reggie game, but the very real fact is we couyld easily trade down. If that happened, the game would end quite anticlimatically and everyone would be a loser. I figured add in the trade down and make it broad becuase there are so many ways to go. I thought about a Trade Down Dbrick, Trade Down Mario, Trade Down Hawk, but then that Might be too big. What do you think?

    How 'bout you just leave the three choices. BTW, this should probablay wait until the combine as some players' stock can skyrocket or go down the toilet. I'm jus' sayin.

    if we trade down Casserly will need to be looking over his shoulder every moment, every day.....its not worth it, just Bush or Young trading down just means you think your smarter than the next guy & like that ever happens :rolleyes:

    What about those of us who think that the Texans will draft one particular way, but your own personal preference is something different?

    I think that the Texans will take Bush, but I would prefer them to take Young.

    Whoever is the pick, if someone makes a slick avatar of them, I'd be likely to use it though. GO NEW TEXAN!!!!!

    In that case you get your choice: you can go with your head, or with your heart. In any case it is a game and should be fun. Plus, we all get a slick looking avatar at the end of the day we can use for a while and a great player! Seems like a win-win-win situaiton in my mind!
