    In my opinion, our Houston Texans football team needs to take RB Reggie Bush over QB Vince Young with the number one pick (assuming we do not trade it.)

    Some may arguee we already have a good back with Davis, which is true. However, Davis is very injury prone. We've seen this in the previous years and this one. By drafting Bush, it gives us a speedy back with also tremendous ability to run the outside. Then, we could mix Davis in, the more power style back, to run counters and up the middle.

    By doing this, it would also allow David Carr to do playaction deep passes to our playmaking wideout Andre Johnson.

    We are building this team around David Carr. People, this guy is a good quaterback, just some of the people around him don't fit, including the previous coaches perhaps. The Texans publicly relased a statement that they will not trade Carr, and re-signed Carr to an $8 million dollar bonus. Their is a reason Gary Kubiak is leasding canidate foro ur head coaching job: to help David Carr get to the next level. Gary Kubiak was even asked in the interview how he plans to take Carr to the next level.

    Plus, if we draft Bush, they're will be free-agent lineman wanting to come to Houston to block for him, providing Carr with the neccesary protection.

    Bottom line, yes David Carr does have some flaws, he does. He, at times, has trouble picking up the secondary reciever, sometimes he doesnt watch the playclock and gets delay of game. But guys, he has been the QB of an expansion team since day 1. Even Peyton Manning would be struggling! Carr is also a family man and a very holy man, both positive attributes which are going to help him suceed with the Houston Texans in the future.

    Go Texans:redtowel:

    This franchise will always be haunted if they skip on Vince. Always.

    You also forgot to mention that you can use him as a WR on third downs. He has lots of experience lined up as a WR on passing downs.

    If the Texan's elect to stay with David Carr as their QB they had better trade out of that number one spot. There is no way they should just leave Vince on the board and select Reggie Bush.

    Carr is a decent quarterback but Vince Young is a leader who knows how to win!! He can get the team behind him unlike David Carr. I don't get the feeling that Carr's teammates respect him.

    As I said in another post......

    "Vince will only be allowed to do 25% of what he did in college. 100% of Bush > 25% of Vince."

    He hasn't taken ONE NFL snap. He could be Ryan Leaf for all we know. QB's are more probable to be a bust than RB's are.

    QB in college and QB in NFL are TWO totally different things. While RB the transition for a RB is less of a henderence.

    Bush equals a more probability to show dividends THIS YEAR. Young may take 3-4 years. Who is willing to wait 4 more years for the Texans to be good...not me.

    Bush is the safe pick.

    VY is a high risk/reward pick. He has infinite potential compared to our current QB. The problem is that the Texans are in bed with Carr and have to save face by keeping him around.
