    You people are crazy to think that the Texans shouldn't take him with the first pick. He is such a game breaker, that even if he isn't a 20 to 25 time a carry running back, he will impact the offense so much that we will be one of the highest rated offences in the NFL.

    He is a once in a decade type player. There is no denying him that .

    I have heard him compared to Rocket Ishmael and Desmond Howard, but this guy doesn't only have staight line speed, he can make people miss that I haven't seen like Barry Sanders.

    The fans of Houston should be behind this guy and realize the talent that possesses. No knock to AJ Hawk, Mario William, or V. Young, but this guys is also great and has the potential to be a superstar in the NFL.

    NO. He was a good college player. Once in a decade? Before he has even taken a snap? You give players accolades like that AFTER they have a hall of fame career like barry sanders, not before they even get drafted. Ki-jana Carter was supposed to be revolutionary.

    Ki-Jana Carter may have very well been a revolution if he didnt get injured. its an irrelevant point because of that. ANY player we draft has the potential for injuries.

    I take it he means based on thier potential coming into the league. His potential is through the roof. Nobody ever knows until the player actually plays how he will perform, but he is "expected" to be a once in a decade player. I am now 100% totally convinced he is our man if we stay at #1, which I feel is very likely.

    Im pretty sure he is talking about potential. Not that he is a guaranteed to be great.

    I'll say this, all the guys in your last paragraph has the same superstar potential as Bush. So that's neither here or there. I heard CC say something the other week that made a bunch of sense (yeah I know it's a first time for everything) about Reggie Bush. He made a reference about Randy Moss. Knowing what you know about Moss and his explosiveness when he gets the ball would you take him #1? Take in mind that he is a WR and doesn't get the ball alot. I thought that was a fair comparison (just on the explosiveness basis). His agrument was based upon hindsight but I understood the point.

    Now that we signed Weaver to play LDE, I expect us to draft Bush 1st and an OT with our 2nd. With our two 3rd's, I think we plan on taking a MLB and TE (unless we sign one of these two). I think we still plan on signing an OG (RG) and WR.

    Maybe not, but I would put my money on him over David Carr making it at this point in time.

    So Bush's pro day is April 2nd if memory serves ..... assuming he's running the 40, what time does he need to run to keep the Vince-o-manics from going bananas?

    IMO anything slower than 4.3 and he's longhorn bait ...

    Simply odds. Average lifespan of an NFL player is 4 years. Carr is living on borrowed time with a team that does not have a lot of cap space left to fill immediate needs that will help rise his level of play. Young will most likley go to a team that will make him hold the clip board for at least a year and allow him to see the game at a much slower speed.

    DID YOU SEE THE SAME ROSE BOWL THAT I SAW? I for one just cannot believe that you are actually making these impulsive statements with a straight face that is......COME ON GUY, let's put a smile on your BEVO'S face for a moment......for I will allow you the chance to think big.......let's take the ROSE BOWL MVP VINCE YOUNG.....allow him to snap the ball......and then watch him throw for a touchdown within the confines of a championship starved RELIANT STADIUM............

    For it just doesn't get any BIGGER than this now does it? Now go ahead and fall asleep my good pal..........for DRAFT DAY 2006 COMETH!

    We have so many needs we should trade down and fill them, why would that be crazy?

    Not crazy to do what you feel is best for team.
    Having an explosive player who can score EVERYTIME he touches the ball can also be the best thing for the team. If Texans score more often because of Bush this can have as much if not more effect than 2-3 good prospects.

    Bush can fill need as WR
    Bush can split time with DD making him more durable and rested
    Bush can force LB to stay back and shadow him, this
    > helps Carr from getting sacked on blitz
    > help O-line in protection skeams
    Bush can help Def. by out scoring other teams and staying off field
    Bush can help D-line by allowing them to bull rush when other team has to put points on the board.
    Bush helps D-back get more int's by forcing offense to throw more often
    Bush can return punts if needed.

    I don't think that these things will happen right away if ever, but only 1 prospect in this draft has this potential.

    After alot of thought I now think Bush would be the best use of #1 pick and (as season ticket holder) the most fun to watch over his career. (re: Yao Ming)

    How about the same post touting each.

    Bushbacker, "Bush is lightning fast."
    Youngster, "Young finds a way to win."

    Bushbacker, "Young cannot run a pro style offense."
    Youngster, "Bush cannot be an every down back."

    Bushbacker, "Tastes Great!"
    Youngster, "Less Filling!"

    Bushbacker, "Tastes Great."
    Youngster, "Less Filling."

    Bushbacker, "Lets go drink some beers."
    Youngster, "Sounds like a plan."
