Discussion in 'Texans Talk' started by the wonger need food, Jan 26, 2006.
Whew..... there's still hope, we may get Vince after all.
Damn it.. now we are gonna have months more of Vince talk.
I tell ya one thiing though.. he is accomplished in coach-speak. If they would have asked him if the sky is blue he would have said "well, I dont see the sky changing anytime soon so we have plenty of time to decide that as a team, but im a fan of all the colors and whatever color the sky wants to be is what its gonna be, and we look forward to seeing it"
Heh, I bet all the people who didn't want to hear the questions about the draft in the press conference today really loved the PTI interview. That's practically all they talked about.
What makes this so?
I don't know...I'm really thinking he wants a trade down.
1) I don't think he could put much more emphasis on protecting the QB
2) Denver never took RBs extremely high in the draft - What makes us think Kubiak would start now?
Trade down, take Da Brick, and see what those extra picks can get us. It will also help us next year since I don't think we trade down unless we're looking at a future 1st rounder.
well what is gonna give the Vince Young people hope.. is..well.. ok it was worded like this.
PTI asked: "Since you wont say if you will take Reggie or Vince, you did say that you are a David Carr fan, can we take this to be your answer?" (that is basicly what was meant by the question..if not the exact wording)
Koob said: "No, David Carr is great, I think he can be a great QB in this league, but that is completely seperate from the draft and what could happen there"
When asked about VY or Bush w/ #1 pick Kubes said, "either one of those guys WILL make us a better football team." Don't want to read too much into it, but sounds like he meant we will take one or the other rather than trading down.
When asked if people should take him saying that he likes Carr to mean that Carr will be the Texans QB, he said, "No it's too early to say that....they are seperate issues....I think Carr can be a top QB in the league, but there is still a lot of evaluation to do to prepare for the draft..." Hmmmm.
Did you hear the part where he said turning around Carr and making a decision on their draft pick were two completely separate issues that would be tackled separately?
I can't wait for Draft day. So I can laugh at everyone wearing a VY UT jersey when he goes to the Titans.
Hell let him go to the Titans, because from here on out the Texans will be the team to beat in the South!!!
I know Kubiak said that the system should fit the talent, and I agree - that rather than stuffing a square peg into a round hole, it's best to make adjustments. Seeing that UT had to throw out the pro-style offense to accommodate VY's atheletic abilities into a 2-play spread option (I know there were a few more plays than 2) so that he could create plays, just how much of the offensive system in the NFL should be changed to fit one player? I mean should an entire philosophy be ditched or should the player be developed to better fit a more structured system?
The hardest part will be enduring the VY talk from now until draft day. I hope and pray the organization has the intelligence to do the right thing rather than the popular thing.
Someone should stuff a sock in John McClain's mouth or it will never stop. That goes for Rich Lord, too.
Drafting Reggie Bush is different from turning David Carr into one of the best QBs in the league. Bush will make Carr and the team better. By drafting a position other than qb is different from the Carr issue.
I don't think Busch is the way to go. Trade down get ferguson and maybe a dl threat. I hope we can become the next Carolina Panthers. Go to the Super Bowl in two years!!! But win this time.
Does this mean that we can laugh at you IF they do pick him? Will that be funny too? Your OPINION on what Kubes will do doesn't hold any more weight that what my OPINION of what he'll do does.
BTW...I'm a Texans fan all the way and will support them no matter what.
Fuel, meet fire.
Hope I get to see the PTI interview....but not sure when they replay that anymore. Can't really comment on it until I see it.
He just said hes worked with Elway and Steve Young, and that Carr has THE SAME LEVEL OF TALENT as they do, so I don't think he'll trade a new Young for the apparently closent Steve Young we have in Carr
why would we draft VY? I like VY yet if Gary wants to work with Carr and make him better.. Well Gary gets to work with Ragone also.
I am not saying Ragone is going to take David's place, but we have two QB's.. And if Gary thinks he can make Carr a top 10 QB why can't Ragone be a capable backup?
Oh boy, now I find out our new coach is also mentally ill.
