    "Reggie Bush will rush for 2,000 yards"
    "Vince Young is more ready to be a starter than Matt Leinart"

    Hose this idiot off and take him out back.

    Actually I think what he has said is smart. Leinart had max protection 60% of the time and was surrounded by 10 draft picks. He has more bust potential to me with his weak arm than VY. I think Bush will explode also. Not 2000 yards but he has the speed and moves to pick up some serious chunks.

    The last 2 days have been the only time I ever remember agreeing with Irvin.

    Maybe not his rookie year. He will,however,eventually be better than D. Davis.

    Bush isn't built to be a 2000 yard rusher, but he could possibly be a 2000 all purpose yards guy

    Last I heard 1400 yards rushing is pretty damn good. Especially as a rookie.:twocents:

    He was talking about Bush in Kubiak's system. He said it is fine to insert guys in the system and have them rush for 1000 yards, but it is even better to insert dynamic players into the system such as Clinton Portis, who rushed for near 2000 yards for Kubiak in Denver. He mentioned Portis and Bush have comparble size and skills and Reggie could have easily been a near 2000 yard rusher like Portis was in Denver, here in Houston.

    just clarifying what he said a little bit...

    He wasn't too far off. The team had a chance to go from a mediocre offense to a top 10 offense in less than a year. It's also not like the defense was ignored this offseason.

    This was a pick influenced by other matters ($ and "signability") than football and that is what leads to the worst draft decisions, no matter the sport.

    Guess I'm on one too then because I agree with Michael.

    Reggie was good for a ton of yards and I'd pick Vince any day of the week over Matt.

    Yeah, and then in his 1st playoff game against the Bears he will be shut down! also what about TD`s? Can't win games on yardage.

    Jamal Lewis rushed for 2000 yards a little while ago. Terrell Davis, and Jamal Anderson did it before that...... as far as I know, those are the only guys I know of who've even been close, in recent history.

    with a little bit of a stretch, maybe you're considering 1591 yards near 2000. heck, might as well say DD ran for 1600 in 2004.

    I can see Reggie Being the first player to have 1000 yards recieving, and 1000 yards rushing in New Orleans.............

    Are you serious?? Vince will throw on them, if they spy him........ he'll break for the sideline, the defense will react to stop him from gaining yards, then he'll hit that wideopen reciever.

    If they drop back for coverage, he's gonna kill them.

    This won't be the first time, that a QB would beat Kurt Warner for the starting job in TC......... but if what they say about his armstrength, and downfield accuracy, I can't see it. Besides, they also have Rohan Davey on the roster... another big armed gunslinger........ IMHO, he fits what they are doing in Arizona, than the rumors about Matt's arm would lead you to believe.

    hmm..... I'm thinking we'll be in the top 10 in offensive yards, or scoring, depending on how aggressive Kubiak lets us be. Fast recievers + QB with a big arm + productive running game + cut blocking + play action = top ten offense.

    I half agree. I think if Deuce wasnt there, he would rush for 2k. I think Leinart will develop much faster because of the talent on the offensive side of the ball in 'Zona.

    Matt Leinart has more bust potential? Matt is not only the better, more NFL-ready QB at this moment in time, but he is going to Arizona, where he has three All-Pro caliber receivers and a Denny Green offense to play behind. Give Warner a couple of weeks to get injured and you will see Matt Leinart explode in this league.

    Contrast this to Vince, who's only real credit right now is that he gets to play for Chow, who is supposed to be a good OC.

    I can't wait for the Titans to lose a few games, though I suspect the UT homers will rush to defend Vince with much the same "excuses" people on this board have given Carr about lack of supporting cast, bad playcalling, etc.
