    My gosh I didn't think it could get any crazier and now I read they craziest of all the loud mouth pundits throws his hat into the ring. Sorry but I knew someone would throw it out here. I wonder where the quotes come from?My apologies to all.:) I can't stand the guy but it is an opinion.

    An NFL personnel director who encouraged me to pick USC told me on Thursday: "That's the closest thing I've seen to Michael Jordan since he left Chicago. I watched this kid every game this year, and he just got better and better and better until you finally step back and say, 'I've never seen anything like him.' I don't want to hear another word about David Carr. The Texans will never live it down if they don't take Vince Young."

    This from the same guy who cussed the Mavericks for drafting another tall white stiff named Dirk Nowistki (sp).:confused:

    Vince may be the man or not for the Texans, but Skip Bayless is the last person who's opinion I would want.

    Hyperbole, meet repetition.

    Vince Young made Matt-Reggie-Lendale look like third rounders? Excuse me while I wet myself in awe of the three-point margin of victory.

    The rest of the article consists of much of the same baseless, overstated hype that has been lavished on Vince since the Rose Bowl. Irrelevant or flat out innaccurate comparisons, the typical noise about how "everyone, and I do mean everyone" would sacrifice their firstborn to see Vince a Texan ...

    When will it all end?

    And Round 334 begins ...

    Skip Bayless changes his mind about people more than anyone.

    The morning of the Rose Bowl he was calling Vince overrated and that Texas was a terrible team. He also has Jay Cutler going to the Titans at #3.

    Football is like basketball how? There is no comparison between two different sports like football and basketball on an even plane. They have nothing in common. This is getting ridiculous!!!!

    I can't wait to see #10 in a Texans uniform. He's the guy. Mark it down. There is no other choice.

    Thought I heard him a couple of days ago on 1st and 10 arguing with Woody Page saying just the exact opposite. Total windbag.

    I assume this was directed at me.

    I am not comparing football to basketball, I am saying the Bayless just states ridiculous stuff. I think of him like a sports type radio-shock jock; He just says off the wall stuff to get a reaction out of people. So to consider anything from Bayless as insightful, is just silly.

    Did you all see this article on ESPN.com. Its pretty much saying that Vince Young is the guy for us to draft. I agree with this because I feel like Bush is going to be a wash in the league. He never gets hit, once he gets hit he will get hurt and be a waste. The NFL is much more aggressive and physical then college ball and these guys dont miss tackles. Bush has only been effective on missed tackles when he gets stuck he is bad. For example in the national championship game he showed that he wasnt very talented. He is too small to do anything in the NFL he had one big play in that game and that was off missed tackles once again.

    Couldn't agree more. He is a tabloid reporter and he was talking all kinds of crud on Texas before the game. He likes to stir up trouble. I just find it funny that Lopez, McClain, Bayless, etc all have guys saying different stuff. How many personell guys and executives are giving out this "inside info." They will run out of teams soon..lol

    Wow, too bad Skip Bayless is a total moron. Check out his archives then come back.

    Looks like Skip found a new fire to throw gasoline on.

    Exactly. It's a done deal as far as I'm concerned.
