    How bout we have a pay per view Celebrity Death Match Vince Vs Bush ...and the Texans take the winner with the pick.

    Vince has the reach but Bush is kinda quick ...I'm still rolling with Vince!

    I think Reggie could take him. Not only does he have the speed, but I think he has the strength advantage too

    This rivalry was over a week (if not a couple months) before this article was even written.

    Not really. The debate may be over, but not the rivalry, I hope that Tenn picks VY s we can have a kind of football rivalry like Magic and Bird, or Jordan and Barkley, even the newest LeBron and Carmelo. It like Bush wins Heisman, VY gets championship, Bush gets top pick, VY wins the first game between the 2, and it goes back and forth were both dominate and play up to another level against each other.

    Can't say I hope that VY wins the first game against us (or any for that matter) and Jordan/Barkley was never much of a rivalry either, not like LeBron/Carmelo and certainly not like Bird/Magic.

    I hope the Texans take Young and throw the whole dang Draft into a frenzy, It would be so funny watching everyone scramble to try to get Bush. I bet New Orleans could get some mental/value compensation for all of those draft picks they lost when they traded up for Ricky Williams all those years ago. I hope some team is that desperate for Bush, if we were to trade down considerabley to 10-20 with an additional second this year and a first + 2nd or 3rd next year that would be awsome. Can anyone remember who traded the pick to New Orleans that year??

    Per KFFL.com

    Leinart will be a Titan, not Vince. :twocents:

    Is this new news that the Saints won't be drafting Leinart?

    It's news that the Saints will be taking Williams or Ferguson.

    I have to believe they will take Leinart over Young. For many reasons.

    - He is the top rated QB in the draft & the most "NFL ready"
    - Norm Chow
    - Jeff Fisher's alma mater is ISC
    - They won't pass Leinart to take Young only so Bud Adams can "have the last laugh" at us. I bet he doesn't even think about Houston anymore.

    So, I still think Vince will go to Oakland or Buffalo. I say Buffalo only because of the rumors that they are shopping Losman(sp?).:twocents:

    Nope, Vince got the only trophy that really counts.

    That would be odd, given that he still lives and works here.

    I'm also fairly certain that Bud Adams is keenly aware of the impact Vince Young would have on the Titans from a marketing perspective. Houston has a lot of consumers, and the Texans continue to make it easy for him to keep a foothold in our market.
