    I knew there would be some insanity on here this morning but nothing like this homer filled, fair weathered bunch of posts. How are some of you even considered Texan fans?It is like you change your position on all issues overnight and make snap judgements on guys after one game. I have seen both Vince and Bush all year and both are phenomenal players. Both have single handedly taken over games this year. Vince last night, Okl, St., Michigan and Bush in UCLA, FResno St. Az St., etc. Bush barely touched the ball last night and still had a pretty good game. Quiet by his standards but average wise and for the number of touches, not bad. I saw him knock guys on their tail when people blitzed and he when he did get a shot in the open field he was great.

    I don't get the idea of trading in order to get O-lineman. The New England Patriots dynasty has one second rounder and the rest are below the 2nd, free agents and waiver wire guys. The Denver Broncos has ONE 1st rounder with the 20th pick, a free agent, two 4ths and a 7th..ahem. The Redskins have one 1st rounder, a second, two 3rds and an 8th. Two of them Free Agents, including a 20 year guy. There is zero reasons for getting a first round lineman with this high a pick if you have people who can find these guys. Also we have 4 of the first 66 picks and 7 other picks which are high in their round. If Charlie actually does his job, that is alot of picks along with a top skill guy. There is no guarantee that he is any more of a bust than any lineman will be the next Mandarich. Why is skill guy anymore of a bust than a high round lineman?

    Do I think Vince can be a stud?Sure. He is a winner, first and foremost. But I have yet to see a scrambling guy like him succeed in a league where LBs also run 4.3s and guys get injured yearly. The draft is a crapshoot and guys like Terrell Davis, who are picked in the 7th round, end up being studs and guys like KiJana go down with injuries. I just don't get the daily bandwagon around here.

    What LB do you know that runs a 4.3? Derrick Johnson is one of the fastest LBs in the NFL and runs a 4.52.

    It's always like that. One day it's Ferguson, the next day it's another tackle. It just goes with the boards. I contend though that replacing a DD with a Reggie Bush makes as much sense as replacing Carr with Young. I think we can trade and make some real changes, but I also understand that maybe Coaching can fix most of the holes, so why not go for it all?

    Vince Young's performance is like a stick in a hornet's nest - and we're not calming down until we get a new coach.

    I think most of the guys think close to what they did before the game...but 1,730 anonymous active members will have some bi-polar looking thoughts coming out since we all don't think alike. It's not unusual for the forum to host radically diverse opinion...and yeah, we are all fans....Most of the guys here are really not a fair weather anything.

    Fact is Vince Young practically beat USC, who was on a 34 game winning streak, single handedly. Bush has been overhyped all season and was exposed against a real defense. Who cares if he barely touched the ball, when he did run the ball he didn't do much with it. Sure, he got yards returning kicks and in the passing game, but I would rather not have the Texans use the #1 overall pick on a kick returner/#2 WR. And FYI, I have been anti-Bush since all his hype started, and still am, now I am just pro-Vince

    I agree with you on some of this. Most of my points can be cleared up with a good coach and GM who can bring in the right supporting cast and who can draft middle round guys that will play for you in the line.

    As for the LBs that run 4.3s. Boss Bailey of georgia could when he got drafted. A guys from the Seahawks could. It was more a point that even if the guys run between a 4.4-4.6, the game in the NFL is much faster.

    That is great and Vince may be the best player ever but right now there has never been a QB like him to take off in the NFL. Vick has shown that injuries with bigger and faster NFL guys happen and that the speed can only get you so far. He is a winner but I'm not sure if his style translates here. How was Bush overhyped all season?Against ND he had 15 carries for 160 yards. This included 3 catches for 43 yards. This against a pro coach that game plans for these guys. Fresno St. 23 carries for 294 yards. UCLA, 24 carries for 260 yards. How is that overhyped..lol

    I forgot to put this but does anyone else realize that when a teams game plan on D keys on a player then another guy can step up?Texas was all over Bush and it gave Leinart all day to throw with play action. That helps the line a ton!!

    That "pro coach" was an offensive coordinator. He didn't do much game plannign for Bush, he left that to his defensive coordinator. Now if USC was playing the Cleveland Browns, then I might get your point.

    That makes no sense at all. Charlie Weiss was still a coach in the NFL and one of his strengths was game planning. It doesn't matter that he only coaches O, he still has to get together with his other coaches and devise a game plan. You basically skipped any of the points about his yardage in big games adn just went for a cheap shot. Weak.

    ive explained my stance on it 100 times. my support for the Bush pick was tentative before the game.

    btw.. argueing and changing your mind about who the Texans should draft.. does not have any bearing on whether you are a Texans fan or not. Everyone wants the best value for the pick.. claiming that someone isnt a real Texan fan because they dont want Bush.. is pretty freakin stupid. Bush isnt on this team yet... dont forget that.

    Never said that not supporting Bush makes you a bad Texan fan. It was never mentioned anywhere. But in one day, after one game, the board went haywire with Vince mania and people screaming that they would never cheer for the texans if they picked Bush. That is bush league.

    Where is Bush mentioned?I NEVER said that. It was in regards to people saying that they would not be fans if they picked him OR didn't pick Vince or ones that called either overrated, etc AFTER one game. There were no stipulations.

    This is all a moot point because Casserly has said today that they are happy with David Carr, they will extend his contract, they will not draft a quarter back, and that they are going to draft an offensive playmaker.

    He can't say specific names yet because Bush hasn't declared but you can connect the dots.
