    Thanks alot Kubiak, Casserly & McNair. I haven't been this mad since everyone said you were taking Reggie instead of Vince. Brilliant move giving all that extra dough to Carr.

    Why is he dumb? If the Texans had either Bush or Young they would have won today. Instead they have Mario, and they lost.

    Well Bev, what I saw to day was proof positive that Bud will never ever see another super bowl.

    It's not a mistake when you rule the guy out because of money issues before the combine even starts.

    I like how when Mario was healthy and recording nearly a sack a game everyone was in love with him and now he's the worst number 1 pick ever. Seriously, don't forget that we had one of our best drafts in years this year, heck it may have been the best draft we've ever had. The loss stings more then I ever could have imagined, but things will eventually go right. We just need a QB that can throw a decent long ball sometimes, another CB, and a healthy DD and we're good to go.

    The next draft is not going to be as loaded as this past draft. We really dropped the ball on this one.

    Are you talking about Mario Williams or David Carr?

    It's official - worst post in NFL history.

    Way to early to be judging this draft.

    Mario has played well this year especially before his foot started dogging him.

    Our defense has looked more promising than it has in years.

    This is the first of what will be many clashes between Vince and Mario.

    Time will tell who will get the last laugh.

    The thought did cross my mind too... and I would claim Carr as my favourite Texan.

    No DC sux no MW sux no DC no MW people get a damn grip if any of you who say that MW is a bust could pick draft picks you would not be at the job your in now but the NFL your not so drop it besides most of you would have more than likely drafted a QB in the first round.

    If that was the best draft you've ever had, that's pretty telling.

    You had a chance to get yourself a no-risk superstar in Bush, Young OR Leinart, and you took an over-achieving defensive end who gets his sacks against poor players.

    GOOD ONE.

    The guys that are getting paid from our season ticket proceeds never even considered Vince. Nobody did their homework, they were convinced their great offensive system didn't need great players (including running backs), they thought they could make a serviceable player out of one that had not produced in 4 years (Carr) and they didn't even care one bit what the fans were saying. The latter point I can understand, but not the other points.

    lol... seriously yall are all f'in retarded... seroiusly... Vince young would have the same problems as Carr behind our offensive line. Do yall realize that Carr isn't the problem???

    Lets do this...lets draft reggie bush, brady quinn, vince young, LT, michael vick, hell and barry sanders. They would all SUCK behind our offensive line.

    EVERYTHING starts with the offensive line, if you can't have a running game you can't have a defense because the defense will be tired because they will ALWAYS be out on the field, if you can't have a running game you can't have a passing game because one your o line cant give you time to make a pass farther than 5 yards and two the other team already knows whats coming.

    So lets be pissed off because MARIO WILLIAMS is the reason why we are bad this year. Damnit mario... why couldn't you just get a sack every play...even on running plays...steal the ball from the running back and throw it to the quarterback and then tackle him...just so when reggie bush scores 4 touchdowns inside the 10 and vince young throws 8 interceptions and still wins the game, we can be like "Wow Mario Williams has a lot of sacks!!!!"

    1st, sacks isnt the best stat to judge a defensive linemen.
    2nd, I will agree, Vince Young is a good player... but he would have been more of a failure than Carr was this year behind that offensive line.
    3rd. In my opinion, I wanted D'Brickashaw over all of them, that way we can really see what carr is made of.

    However, Mario was my second choice... because we have a good defensive linemen in Mario, and our good defensive line is tying up that offensive line so our AWESOME MLB can make a lot of plays.

    So I please beg all of you, get your heads out of your asses and talk football... quit exagerrating and being a bunch of whiny bitc.hes . A lot of you have never even played football and don't know a thing about it...open your mouth if you have knowledge on the sport, if not, then get the hell off of here and save yourself from some embarassment.

    My friend, there is no such thing as a no risk pick in any draft.

    1. Risk with Bush: Not an every down back.
    2. Risk with Young: Always played shot gun and can't adapt; poor intelligence test scores.
    3. Risk with Leinart: Weak arm, not able to make the transition.
    4. Risk with Mario: Streaky, only plays well against bad teams.

    Not saying that these are right in hindsight, with the exception of Bush that's spot on, but there was by no means a risk free pick in that draft. Besides Mario is hurt, give him a few years and I'm sure you'll change your tune.
