    He just said so on Sports Center. The kicker? They have been negotiationg non-stop with Mario Williams. Looks like the Reggie dream is dead.

    Or maybe they already have a gentleman's agreement in place and this is more of a ploy by the Texans. Either way I can't wait for this draft to be over. I'll be very disappointed if we draft M.Williams and the only way I'll get over it is we win and win quickly. Also, Williams better play like a pro-bowler from day one if he's the no.1 pick.

    You aren't kidding. I cannot believe that somehow this franchise has dropped the ball on this draft. We all suffered through a 2 - 14 season in order to pick up an unproven defensive end. The best we can hope for is a last-minute trade to at least make this somewhat tolerable...

    I'm really leaning toward wanting Reggie over Mario, but not if the Texans are seriously concerned about a holdout.

    :tv: This is the rest of the NFL when we pass on Bush.

    Mario better be another Bruce Smith.

    I am with you. Would turn out to be one of the stupidest decisions we could have made with this pick...

    You're not lying. I better see Julius Freeking Peppers times 2 if they are going to pass on Bush for whatever reasoning. What's weird is the following:

    "In addition, league sources told ESPN.com that, in terms of guaranteed money, the latest offer made to Williams exceeds the best proposal made to Bush".

    WTF? Oh and anyone else remember the last dlineman going #1 overall? Courtney Brown, oh and he worked out so well for the Brownies. Okay, it's offical. This franchise is the biggest embarassment in sports. I just knew CC would somehow blow the unblowable. :brickwall

    So how exactly are we planning on preventing Carr from getting 68 sacks again this year??? I thought the Texans we sooo high on protecting Carr...I believe Bush would have taken alot of heat off Carr....What idiots...

    I just want to know what the Texans plan on doing with Weaver if they draft Mario:confused:

    I guess they leave him at the strongside and start Mario at the weaksideidonno:

    That actually makes sense to me. I think a defensive end is worth more money than a running back.

    In most cases, sure. But Mario isn't worth more than Reggie. :twocents:

    Oh, and anyone else remember the last running back going #1 overall? Ki-jana Carter, oh, and he worked out so well for the Bengals. Okay, it's official. Since Williams is apparently a guaranteed bust because the last DL #1 was a bust, Bush is also a guaranteed bust because the last RB #1 overall was a bust. Same. Exact. Logic.
