    According to this ESPN report out today...

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2283797

    If this scenario plays out Bob and Casserly better pray that VY doesn't turn into a superstar and start kicking our *** every time especially in Bud duds. That would be the ultimate kick in the groin. Of course this scenario will mean MORE Titans fans in the Houston area and Texas in general. Real nice. Thanks Bob and Charlie.

    I'll have a hard time forgiving this franchise if Young becomes the pro bowler I think he will become and Carr gives us more average play for Franchise money. This franchise doesn't seem to football savvy to me sometimes.

    My prediction...

    Bush taken #1...Young goes back to school.

    Texans go 3-13 in 2006.

    Young goes #1 to Texans in 2007.

    Ok, my dream is over. :)

    And THAT is my absolute worst-case scenario.

    Which is probably going to happen.

    I won't mind getting Reggie Bush, but the thought of my VY playing for the Titans is just awful. Good for Vince. Bad for me. It's all about MEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    :crying:

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but doesn't VY have some connection to Steve McNair?...I think McNair was a mentor of sorts...

    This is a nightmare scenario and could be the biggest sports blunder in history in this city from the perspective of losing a great player to a division rival - arguably the best football player ever to come out of Houston - and turning fans against the team by letting Bud get his hands on him. I would be beyond pissed if this happened. Yes Steve and Vince are good buds.

    If Vince ends up in TN and does well, which there's no reason to believe he won't, there will be more TN fans in Houston than Houston fans in Houston. Why don't you just give the city up to Cowboys and Titans fans while you're at it Mr. McNair?

    What's funny is I was about halfway through an article on this when it appeared ...

    Yeah, McNair is VY's mentor...

    I hold hope that Chow talks Fisher into taking Lineart...

    According to that article Leinart will be gone to the Saints at #2. The only way VY doesn't go to Bud is if the Saints take him instead of Leinart.

    I sort of remember everyone wanting that first pick at all costs, welcome to the Terrordome.

    Everyone is talking about how much this is a simple decision. This is based on one football game folks. One football game. It's a football game where Bush had more than 250 all-purpose yards I'll add. If you can sit there and honestly tell me you would have favored Young over Bush BEFORE the game then I'll respect that opinion, but people were torching that USC defense all year. Heck, let's draft Brady Quinn since he torched USC. Come on folks, as amazing as Young's performance was we need some perspective here. If Young weren't from Houston some of you would be still thinking Bush. Geography shouldn't have anything to do with it. Let's go out and get the best football player.

    Exactly. He will be taken at #3 unless he's already gone. :crying:

    No it isn't. It's based on two years of VY dominating at the NCAA Div-I level, including two Rose Bowl victories where he carried his team. He's a great talent and even greater leader. I hardly ever jock college players, much less juniors, but to pass on him would be a huge mistake and one that could set this franchise back another lifecycle.

    I ain't from Houston, but if I was I would rather die with a local behind center than with Carr and then the local guy kicking our **** for a decade. It's junior highish from a distance, but I would be with them.

    I think you forget that Young started in all the Texas wins...not just the Rose Bowl. he was the first EVER QB to throw for 2500 yards and run for 1000 in NCAA HISTORY. EVERY single QB to EVER play has never done this in the long long history of College football.
