    Williams decision was made on Thursday
    They chose the best player
    Signability could be a factor in the decision but wasn't the biggest factor
    Both Bush and Williams agreed on 54 million dollars
    the guaranteed money was slightly different
    the decision was based on wanting to win and doing what's right for the Texans
    1 player does not win by himself
    dominant defensive lineman are harder to come by than impact Running backs
    no one will out score Indy so you have to play defense (ala Pittsburgh)
    Bush was not a full time player in college
    Why wasn't Bush on field at end of championship game?
    Earl Campbell would've been on the field at the end
    If Mario wasn't in the draft, Bush was the pick
    He doesn't understand why the fans don't like Carr ... works hard, tough, good kid, ....
    Carr was a far better prospect coming out than Young ... says that's the thought around the league
    Expects the offense to be better but says the defense must be better for them to win

    I like the idea of drafting to beat the Colts. Good start.

    Charley made the point that Earl Campbell was the best RB that Houston's ever had, but he didn't win us a Super Bowl. He thinks the Texans would be in the same boat.

    (2nd segment)

    Ryans will play as a rookie especially in the Nickel
    the coaches have already discussed his role (which side but he wouldn't say)
    Spencer & Winston have only 2 full years on offensive line
    Winston was initially a TE
    both have upside and aren't finished developing
    Spencer will line up at LT initially
    Winston will line up at RT initially
    Pitts is LG initially
    McKinney is RG initially
    Daniels is athletic was a QB, good in motion, smart
    Lundy is a good solid back
    Virginia ran zone blocking scheme
    he's the big back they don't have
    David Anderson is quick, good hands
    they're trying to pry where Ryans will play out of him but he won't budge
    more college free agents expected to be signed
    why didn't they trade back to 4? they had no offers .... he called the Jets 4 times and it was No everytime
    it never got to a point to where the Jets would discuss terms .... Jets had zero interest
    says it's very difficult in today's NFL finanacial situation to trade in the top few picks
    asked about fan situation last year ... boos, empty seat ... he says fans want to win and that's the bottom line
    says Bush was instant excitement but that's not so much reality
    asked about moving around in the 2nd round ..... no team had interest

    FINALLY!! Someone asks the question about trading down.

    "I called the Jets 4 times since February ... they never called us" ... " ... They [The Jets] were never interested in trading up."

    I think it's logistics .... jumping from 4 to 2 is much cheaper ... the Titans were never going to be a player for trading up ... the Saints weren't either ... this draft is so deep ... :twocents:

    They're about to start taking calls for Charley. This should be interesting.

    (3rd segment)

    caller thanked him for making right pick ..... did Bush on Conan (losing comment) effect them in any way?
    They chose Williams because he'll come in and work hard and get ready to play football


    2nd caller seconds the first caller in that they made the right choice .... no question just a comment .... ask Manning, Leftwich, and Titans QB how happy they are about the Texans having Mario


    Lance burned 1 minute pontificating about never being able to remember a situation like Young/Bush/Williams

    Granato said it took "stones" to make the pick .... CC said the easy decisions would've been Young or Bush but they're not paid to make easy decisions and he has no problem defending the Williams pick

    So far the calls are pro-Mario. Kinda surprised.

    Pretty sure after the guy on Friday that blasted Charley about Vince & then Lance went off, they are screening for Pro Mario calls only

    my suspicion is that they're screening for Texan-related questions ... not Saints or Titans questions ... :twocents:

    (last segment)

    asked about Norm Chow and the Young pick ..... he says Chow is a pro and will coach who is in place ....

    Lance heard a rumor that Chow wanted to move up to make sure he got Leinhart ... Jeff F's press conference was "awkward" .....


    Charley says he's never taken a 1st round pick that the coach did not want ...

    says that the Texans understand the passion but they selected a great young man and we'll be proud of him and glad he's a Texan


    (that's it)

    If that @#$#$%#@sucker gave the fans 1/100th of the luvyablue fun, he'd be a legend. They didn't win it all but they sure were exciting and competitive for years. I never thought I'd be saying that about Bud Dumbass Adams team.

    They spent a lot more years not being competitive.

    They way CC answered the question struck me as funny. CC said his daughter called him and told him about what Bush said on Conan. It sounded like CC was about to comment on this, then he paused.... and then said, "we picked Williams because he'll come in and work hard and get ready to play football."

    Since he didn't say flat out that it had no effect on his decision it makes me think it did. My guess is the Texans didn't like the way Bush came off in his interview, and didn't like the USC problems that were popping up.
