    I don't believe the Texans are going to draft Bush. I truely believe that they want Young, & I'm willing to make a friendly (non-monetary) bet to prove it.

    Here's the deal. The Texans have to have Bush on the roster (active or injured) for the opening regular season game next year. If he is, you can change my moniker (Hottoddie) to what ever you want it to be. If he's not, I get to do the same thing to your's. The change will stay in effect until next year's draft. Also, the name can't be obscene. If there are multiple takers on this wager, there'll be a drawing, of sorts, to choose who gets the honors. Something like, me picking a number between zero & the total number of winning participants.

    Now, anyone that believes like I do & wants to join the "Bush won't be on the Texan's roster come opening day team", you are eligible to throw your moniker into the pot as well. When we win, we'll just divide up the spoils & start changing monikers.

    I'll make this a public poll, so that we can all see who's on what side. If you vote, you're throwing your moniker into the pool & there's no taking it back.

    So, how about it, any takers? :D

    I say Bush is coming on Thursday to pick his locker and get measured for his uniform. Maybe not the locker/uniform part but he will be here Thursday I believe.

    I voted for Bush, but it would be interesting to see what would happen if they have an equal grade on the two. Does signability before the draft enter into the equation. Plus, how much stock do we really put into the UT/home angle?

    I think two things have happened in the workouts

    1) Reggie Bush answered SOME of the strength and durability concerns with his benchpress performance. Like I said, SOME. Additionally, he showed the all-around athletic ability we all know he has.

    2) Vince Young was very impressive throwing the ball.

    Of course, the problem is that there are still questions.

    1) Can Bush be a 20 carry per game back?
    2) Can Young make the throws WE want him to make?
    3) When will Young be ready to play?

    I'm on the record as being for Bush and believing the Texans will take Bush. However, I do think VY will make a very good pro QB. I'll gladly let anyone change my monikor and will root for VY if we take him.

    You guys are crazy! LOL I hope that Reggie does not expect Houston to be L.A. if he does he will be disapointed. We are the concrete city baby, not Hollywood, we have hoods minus the holly if he wants to see them lol. I hope Vince works out awsome that way we can see some gray hair come out in Charley C's Hair. He looks like he sprays black spraypaint on his hair lol. I see that guy and I laugh so hard, his hair is awsome lol.

    You Texas Longhorn homers amaze me. Vince Young will be a bust, count on it and Houston isn't drafting him.

    It's been widely reported that he'll be here to meet with everyone on Thursday, the same as it's been reported that Young will be here on Friday. The Texans need to sit with these guys if they are considering investing the #1 pick on them. I'm pretty sure it's normal for the team with the #1 to have private visits with the top choices.

    I don't think either VY or Bush will be busts. Neither pick would be bad, but considering the investment the team just made in Carr and the cost it would take to trade him, I think the pick is Bush.

    Texans won't draft Young.... but he won't be a bust either. Its just going to take him 3-4 years to start paying off.

    Then put your moniker where your mouth is.

    By the way, I'm not a UT homer. I have not now, nor have I ever, had any affilliation with UT. I just believe that Young better fits what Kubiak is planning on doing with our offense.

    Denver has for years, been able to plug just about any RB into their system & watch them flourish. However, they had their greatest success when they had a mobile, passing QB by the name of John Elway ('83-'98). You know who his coach was during most of those years (doesn't include the 2 Superbowl years)? Dan Reeves ('81-'92), & he had a 117-79-1 record during his time there. No one can convince me that Reeves isn't going to have some say in this draft.

    And the 1st conclusion Reeves came to as a consultant was the problems with the team were more coaching than personnel--hence bye bye to the coaching staff, keeping CC and a maximum extension for Carr. Regardless of whether those decisions are correct, those are the tea leaves.

    Tea leaves or not, Carr can be traded. How about the Jets? They could give us their 2nd round pick & considerations for next year, or possibly, the #29 pick in the first round this year. That way, they have their starting QB & can use the #4 pick on a franchise LT (D'Brick) to protect Carr. Seems to me like a good move on their part.

    The Jets have Pennington under contract on the cheap, and they made a trade for Patrick Ramsey (a former 1st Rounder). I imagine Ramsey will win the starting job. Why would they trade for Carr when they've got a young strong armed QB in Ramsey?

    Hate to break your heart, but Carr fits more into the Elway mold than VY does. Elway was mobile, but he had an absolute cannon attached to his shoulder. VY has more mobility and a better set of RB skills, but his arm strength leaves a little to be desired. Carr has decent wheels, a few moves, is pretty athletic and has the arm that more resembles Elways arm strength. But thats putting the cart befor the horse, cause neither Carr or VY should be put in the same zip code as one of if not the best QB to ever play the game.:twocents:

    Over here.
    I'm not betting anything (just wanted to make that clear), but I don't believe for one minute that Young is going to be a Texan. I do still think there could be a last minute Trade Down. Mainly though, I just hope they either take Bush or Trade Down--I don't want to spend the #1 on anything else, like an OT for example. Wouldn't mind having one at all, but not with the #1. That's all. :)

    I'll take your bet, Hottoddie. You've needed a new handle, anyway. Don't worry, I'll be kind. I'm leaning to "I ♥ Reggie".
