    Your avatar is a billboard around town. I saw it and Sienna Plantation must have cut off the rest off the sign saying, "I can't pass on a cover-two either."

    Reading those reponses on that petition were hilarious. If we chose Vince Young because of fan pressure, I will lose what respect I do have for the front office/staff...

    I think we need to draft Reggie Bush just to trim some fat from the fanbase.

    PLEASE! The Texans need an OL, not a QB or RB. I'd be happy with a Stud DE or LB before a QB or RB.

    I hope all of this is a ploy by the Texans to get greater value for the #1 pick. Of course Bush and/or Young would love to be drafted by the Texans..... they assume the Texans keep the #1 overall pick, and thus if drafted, they would get a HUGE contract. It's all about the $$$$ ! Why else would they leave college and enter the NFL draft?? It's all about the Benjis BABY! ! !

    Bush is not going to be as good as people say hes just going to be an average back, Landel White is better that him. VY has proven himself time and time again and hes like the next mike vick but with a good arm.

    Observe the first three picks of last years draft. See if QB or RB's contributed more.

    no Young is going to be an average QB, Lienart is better than him. And Bush has proven himself time and again and is like Tiki Barber with more speed and better hands.

    Any other pointless arguements we can solve with conjecture and supposition?

    Please do not compare Young to Vick. If you are going to make comparisons at least use someone he comapres to such as Steve McNair.

    How do any of you know what to compare VY to? Are any of you NFL scouts? The fact that ANYone is suggesting the Texans take VY, just ruins their whole perspective on what the Texans need!

    Yes, I will compare VY to an NFL QB...... Akili Smith!!! Remember him?? All hype and did NOTHING in the NFL.....VY will be the same! He has horrible passing skills and does not know how to read a defense. Sure, some OC in the NFL is going to play "Mack Brown" and just let VY do what VY does......sling the deep ball and hope that it is caught by the WRs. NFL DL & DBs are not the same caliber as Baylor, UNT, ULaLa or TxTech, they are actually pretty good.

    Go ahead, compare VY to Vick!!!! Vick is the most overrated QB in the NFL. What has he done??? Nothing! Hell, the Falcons were better off with Matt Schaub as the QB!

    Who cares that VY is from Houston...how about the Texans draft Anthony Evans (UH RB) in the 4th rd....I mean, he did go to Pearland HS, so that would cause him to drop to the 4th rd, too bad he isn't from houston, then he would go in the 2nd rd!

    Most of the logic presented by the VY / RB supporters is getting ridiculous. Now I see why NFL players do not like fanatics like most of you.....they actually despise your type! :redtowel:

    This is one of the leanest fan bases in the NFL.

    Proven himself WHERE? Oh that's right, in college against athletes that don't have his skills. In the NFL everyone has his skills, thus PARITY. Well ya got the Mike Vick part right anyway...gj! And Grid is a personal friend of mine, he'd support the team irregardless who they picked, unlike you bandwagon tsippin boys. Have a nice life as a Saints fan :)

    OK, now you have lost credibility. Akili Smith was/is not a mobile QB. His college stats were no where near VY's. He was more like a Byron Leftwich type of guy. The only thing VY and Akili Smith have in common is their race and position on the field.

    So VY has no passing skills and can't read defenses? He FREAKING led the nation in passing efficiency. If he was able to pull that off by having no passing skills and not able to read defenses, geez, he is better than I thought. Did you happen to see that TD strike he thew against Ohio State in the clutch to pull that game out of his a**?

    If you want to see the definition of not being able to read defenses, look up the name David Carr.

    BTW, I don't think you can compare anyone to Vince Young, as many NFL scouts have said because there has been no one like him.
