Pure Speculation. I have a friend in Denver and he is saying this about Bush and Kubiak. Apparently, Denver traded their 2005 first round pick to the Redskins for the Redskins 2006 first rounder. The Denver talk-show guys are saying that Kubiak and Shanahan were in favor of trading both of these number ones (and possibly something more) to the team with the first pick so they could select Bush. The Denver media is laughing at the notion that Houston fans and media are speculating about taking VY. The make the point that if Denver, who are ready has good RBs, would consider taking Bush how could the Texans not take him? I do not know how much these sports talk guys no, could be pure opinion just thought I would share with the board. Additionally, see the following story in the Denver Post a couple of days ago: http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_3397734 All signs point to Bush Houston: It is difficult to believe reports the Texans are married to the decision to draft Southern California running back Reggie Bush with the No. 1 pick over Texas quarterback Vince Young, a state hero and a Houston native. But it makes sense. It also makes sense that Bush will be the pick with the pending hiring of Broncos' offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. All indications point to the Texans hiring Kubiak once Denver's season ends. Kubiak knows the benefits of having a strong running game. Denver has been a running stalwart in Kubiak's time with the team and Bush is too tempting. Plus, the Texans think a solid quarterback coach such as Kubiak could salvage former overall No. 1 pick David Carr. Taking Young and bypassing on the explosiveness of Bush would not make sense. Kubiak has helped Jake Plummer flourish and he could do the same with Carr, who is only 26. It is too early for the Texans to make their final decision, but all signals point to Bush over Young.
