    Since last night's National Championship Game there has been an onslaught of Vince Young or Reggie Bush threads not to mention the staggering amount of Reggie Bush is better than Vince Young threads and vice-versa.

    This is certainly a topic worthy of discussion but in order to maintain continuity on the message boards, the moderators respectfully request that each poster review the threads already started on the subject and add to that thread rather than beginning a brand new thread that dicusses the exact same topics.

    Many threads have already been merged together in an effort to control the situation but new Young vs. Bush threads pop up just as fast as two other Young vs. Bush threads have been merged.

    The Bush-Young or trade the first pick debate will continue for some time I would imagine. Let's just try not to create 10 threads where 1 will serve the purpose equally well.

    Thank You and Go Texans! :texflag:

    Fine. I'm deleting the draft I was working on of my "Vince Young Could Have Saved Dom Capers's Job" main post.

    (OK seriously, I hadn't drafted one, but I was thinking about it)

    This board has exploded today. It definitely needs to be reigned in - although I'm thrilled that we're having this much draft excitement.

    On a serious note, since you want all comments in one thread, are you saying to make this thread the main "Bush, Young, or trade down" thread? Or is this a reminder to post you comments elsewhere?

    gwallaia is just telling the newbies to respect and appreciate the core community by learning and engaging in some basic community standards. In case the new guys missed the readme follow the path below.

    As far as the draft talk, if it centers on the team we will keep it here (now that we are in off-season mode)...once it becomes a list of prospects and "draft talk" we move it to the draft forum. Not everyone who wants to browse on the current team banter wants to weed through rampant draftspeak, so we try to keep the Bullpen centered less on the draft. There are a billion draft threads in the draft forum. If you have a draft question and are not sure where to post it please post it in the draft forum. Everyone who has an interest in the draft browse that forum also.

    Maybe you should sticky one thread and designate it as the official Bush/Young thread.

    Please, once again try to observe a thread before starting a new one with a similar topic. It helps us moderators out a tremendous amount.

    Bump

    Come on people, look for a existing Vince Young thread prior to starting a new one. And if your take is so original that it requires a fresh thread, put it in the NFL Draft Forum where it belongs.

    I have been as guilty as the next person for getting off-topic with regard to this whole Vince/Reggie debate. I must say that some of these threads are just a nightmare to navigate now. It is important to keep your posts relevant to the original topic of the thread. Not that I like Colin Cowherd, but his "STAY ON TOPIC" mantra is appropriate at this time!

    Kudos to the mods doing what they can to keep the board under control! You all are doing a great job.

    Thanks.

    Why waste a #1 on VY, when you have a star in BUSH? We could always take Marcus Vick in the 4th to compete with Carr. Tha real "NEXT VICK" will end up haveing a better career than VY anyways!:redtowel:

    So Bush is an NFL star already? And VY is a waste....Did you look into your crystal ball?

    Did the terrot cards tell you that Vick will have a better carrer than VY?
