    He said we were offering 8% more than Smith got... to Williams? Or to Bush? He said today we negotiated with Williams this afternoon, but I couldn't understand who he said we made that offer to.

    He said that the 8% over offer was to Bush, but that Willimas might agree to take it to become the #1 pick in the draft; if it gets offered to him.

    Makes more sense to pay that to a DE then to a RB....franchise DE's are higher paid then RB's.......

    Sure, but it doesn't make sense to offer it to a DE that dissapeared in half of his games last year and wasn't even the best defensive player on his college team.

    Texans | Owner wants top pick signed before draft
    Fri, 28 Apr 2006 09:00:30 -0700

    John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans owner Bob McNair wants the team's No. 1 overall pick to be signed before they make it official Saturday, April 29. McNair said North Carolina State DE Mario Williams is still in the picture and could end up being the top pick if he agrees to a deal before the draft. Meanwhile, Southern Cal RB Reggie Bush's agent, Joel Segal, has exchanged numerous proposals with the Texans chief negotiator, vice president of administration Dan Ferens.

    DING! DING! DING!

    We have a winner by 1st round knockout.

    I'd rather pay that money to Bush than Williams.

    exactly, if the Texans pay that much money to Mario, and pass up Bush, thats craaaaaaaazy....I'd rather them trade down if they wanna go defense and grab A.J hawk, heck I'd rather we Get D'Brick over Mario

    Williams is too inconsistent. He will be a fine pro, and perhaps even an all-pro, but Bush has the whole package.

    We can all debate that til the cows come home....obviously our front office doesn't feel that way, nor does the leadership of the rest of the teams in the NFL. A lot of people are saying the same thing about Reggie......wasn't even in the game at crunchtime, his coach trusted another back on the team more then him, blah blah blah. There are positives (and negatives) about both players. I will trust to our front office (maybe foolishly) to make the pick they feel is the right one, and I will support that player, and our team completely. Personally I would want our pick to be Williams......but that's just me.

    So because everyone else thinks he's so great that means....??? Like everyone hasn't been wrong b4. And about Petey not trusting reggie, where'd that get him...??? not very far...That was just bad coaching all the way around, he didn't even have him on the field...

    Really, what did they want him to do? Tell the coach to shove it and go on the field anyways?

    I don't care what anyone thinks about Williams. If Bush is number one on your board you take him. Period. This signability crap is ludicrous. You're talking about the next decade here. Take the best player dammit!
