    After reading it now, the bulk of it says that we still should have taken Reggie Bush, or traded #1 for #4 and a fourth rounder. Nothing new really, and doesn't even mention Moulds. Sad really.

    We tried! We didn't get any real good offers! :brickwall

    That would only happen in a dream scenario. Williams would have been the #2 overall pick to New Orleans. We traded our #13 pick away to move down 3 spots and got a future third rounder. And if we do it when we're at the top of the board we get about the same! What a joke

    Actually, we've gotten over it. The only one's who are disappointed are the ones making it up to create a story :rolleyes:

    I haven't heard anything about him yet. I'd like to know how he's done so far. I think we're already packed at LB.

    What a boat load. I can see it now. We trade with the Jets and take a 4th rounder and New Orleans jumps all over Super Mario and we get D'Brick. Not a bad deal, but not addressing what Kubs and co think we need. I guess some writers have nothing better to do than re-hash old news with What-If's.

    One of the best written and least informative reviews I've read in a long time. The article was lousy and IMO uninformed.

    I wonder how Young is taking all of this, considering the fact that he's been very pro-Mcnair all along. He might just have lost his "mentor" incentive to play for the Titans. Nevertheless, this HAS to hurt the general locker room atmosphere.

    Isn't Volek still there? He can play for a year or two and give VY some clipboard time. They didn't throw McNair into the fire.

    Rubbish. Every writer in the nation is biased about the Williams draft. They wanted the Texans to take Bush. It is what Houston was supposed to do. When they didn't, everybody called their draft and their offseason a bust. Nevermind all the other aquisitions (complete overhaul of the coaching staff, defensive front seven, improved receiver corps, bolstered line), Houston didn't take Reggie Bush. Let's add something else to the pot, writers...

    I haven't seen, read or heard one draft"authority" say the Texans had a bust draft. I've heard the exact opposite: Excellent draft if AFTER they picked Williams.

    The Texans had a good draft. No nonsense trades and solid legitimate picks that we needed. Thats all that article needed to say. I am just ready to see these guys in action.

    Bad article that added nothing to the news front save another writers opinoin about us not drafting Bush or VY - Yet didnt Kiper and all the draft gurus say we had one of the best drafts afterward?? Top ranks on Kipers board? Boggles the mind at times. Sheesh and I thought we were hard up for news here in Houston. It seems were long past the draft, - into mini-camps and yet still the media wants to rehash our "Apparant mistake" in not going with VY or Bush - yet nobody has done anything on the field so far except run drills.

    Honestly I cant wait for the season to start, games to be played, and seeing who was right so we can shut some people up - esp the media. It's one thing to get no news on our team as we have the last 4 years mostly, but to keep this drivel going on 2 months later is just pathetic IMO and unable to look at the bigger picture. Cant wait to see money where the mouthpiece is - if Our staff or the Media putzes who all picked Bush were right.

    Funny but - Call me Crazy that I have a hunch were going to see a big turn around for a our team, that Mario, DeMec & crew will be kicking some butt and we see an average RB season for Bush in NO. Then lets see what the media has to say? Oh wait I can here the spin doctors now - Bush didnt have a line, or didnt get enough reps etc... Honestly im predicting a big bandwagon by the Media after mid-season getting on board and saying they knew all along The Texans were right for going with Defense and taking Mario and that they were pushed into the Bush pick. Then we get a heavy rotation with the Talking heads saying how the Texans are the turn-around team of the year and their pet pick for the play-offs.

    Seen it happen more than once over the years to other ball clubs...

    Let me be more succinct: When I have read writers opinions of the Texans' draft, the opinion has been: what the hell were they thinking for not drafting Reggie Bush? Little to nothing have I read about writer's opinions of the rest of the Texans draft. All they care about is Williams vs. Bush, and whether Houston wants to recognize it or not, the Texans are still defending the pick.

    If you think there is too much being made of this now, wait until Bush gets 27 yards on 11 carries in week one but returns a punt for a TD. Mario doesn't record a sack but stuffs the run and occupies multiple blockers the entire game allowing others to blow up play after play. Bush will be all over Sportscenter and we'll hear about how stupid we are and don't we wish we could have that pick back.

    Thats what i was thinking too. Nobody is saying their draft was a bust, they're just still talking smack about the #1 pick. Some writers have actually applauded the Texans.
