    They all mentioned that Reggie Bush might very well be the best player to come out in 15 years. They discredited any concern about durability, and can he handle 25 carries a game. Stating that he WONT have to carry the ball that many times a game because he will be able to do in 10-15 carries what others are doing with 25. Said Tiki Barber with blazing speed. Gave me goose bumps just listening to them talk about what might be in our FUTURE!!!

    yeah they didn't really say he COULD handle the 25 carries, they just said he won't have to.

    First off, I think Kiper's hair is more slicked back and greasy than ever.

    They started off with some highlights of Reggie Bush and the usual talk of his positives on the field...

    Then, they bring Casserly on....

    "Explosion, big play ability, catch the ball, multiple positions are his strenghts, etc"
    Weaknesses - Not necessarily a weakness but he played only X amount of plays at USC. Not a workhouse type of guy. On the other hand, can score on one touch. Want him on your side, not on the other.

    Played a bite from Reggie Bush - talked about his visit with the Texans (nothing new)

    "We have not made our final decision yet. Brought in Mario Williams, he's qualified for 1st pick in the draft. Lots of options, drafting, trading, etc."
    "What would it take to trade - Don't want to move very far, have outlined what it is going to take to move down...

    Asked about D'Brick - Said it's a possibilty. May address offensive line in later rounds.

    Charlie was his usual chummy self. Nothing new.

    Casserly is doing what he does best, being Cass. That was a show. He showed us everything but told us nothing.

    Not a lot of new stuff, other than it sounded like we gave up on D'Brick. He seemed like he was leaning away from Young, Mario seemed more likely if not Bush. Said something about maybe a lineman later in the draft.

    ESPN brought Rick Spielman on to talk about that interview - Said texans are unlikely to trade down. Bush looks like their guy. More teams need QB over RB.

    Mortensen - brings up local pressure on Houston regarding VY. Bush could stymie that pressure.

    Correct. Nor did they say he couldn't. Just canceled out the durabilty concern early with the comments.... Meaning if he COULD it would be a bonus.
