    I only heard part of it and he was talking about Vince backing up Carr unless he was traded. I had to change the channel. You would think he could add something new every now and then.

    McClain has become such a doddering old fool, I feel sorry for him. I wish he would retire. But then again, I have no confidence in the Chronicle to hire anyone better. Justice and Lopez are even dumber than McClain is.

    One would think in a city the size of Houston, we would have good sportswriters at the main newspaper. Perhaps the Chronicle is too cheap to attract anyone with a triple digit IQ.

    A theroy of mine.

    Vince hires an agent and tells him he wants to be a Houston Texan. If he can make that happen he will give the agent a little extra from the thirty five million signing bonus he would get as the overall number one. If young gets drafted #1 his agent stands to make millions off of his comission's. The agent then goes to the local media to convince them to start writting positive articals and riveting material on how Vince is a can't miss. Giving the contributing sports writters a kick back if they could help this poor kid full fill his dream of playing for his home town.(Lets just say 500k a piece) Justice and McClain would then use there talk shows and articals, knowing the pen is mightier than the sword, and convince all the home towners he is the footballs version of Jordan.(Even though they spent the last six months saying that about Reggie.)

    That being said, I do think they Texans will draft Young. Then trade him to the Jets. I know what you are saying, thats crazy! However if the Texans are thinking of trading down, but are concerned about VY playing for your division fo, wouldnt the smart money be taking control of the situation and trading him to a team you wouldnt mind him playing for? Yes Bush would then go to the Tittans but a RB life span is only about 5-6 years then the talent starts to drop off, as apposed to a QB who's lifespan is 10-15 years. I do think if we trade with the Jets we get there #4, Abraham, and this years second. We then turn around and draft williams. That would be an impressive front four, Abraham, Johnson, Smith, Williams. Should be, three of four would be first round picks. Not to mention having the first and fourth pick in the second where we could get a TE and OL.

    Thats just my wackey theroy.

    I agree with Vinny, the only way someone will trade with us is if they are crazy over Leinart or Voung, and I'm talking Ditka/Williams trade your entire draft crazy.

    Thanks for the chuckle. Sweet!

    The "you must draft Vince or you're stupid" crowd as nobody but themselves to blame for the backlash that has taken place . . . but the McClain/Chronicle/610 Spin Machine has done it's part also.

    And here it's still the middle of February.:crazy:

    Justice is considered one of the top journalists in all of the country and he is very well respected.

    That of course, depends on which side of the "great debate" that you're on. :)
