    Wouldn't Vince be Hakeem and Bush be Jordan?

    Yeah cut it down to a quote since it's not from HoustonTexans.com. Having a link allows anyone who reads the thread to read the full article.

    Another thing, where were Skip's dumb name changes?

    There were no David "Carr wreck"
    or Kyle "I should have been a Bowler"
    or "Terrible" Owens

    Skip is a moron. He always tries to be controversial and has polarized views.

    Yeah im pretty sure his sole reason on being on ESPN is to disagree with Woody Paige on Cold Pizza. Of course thats what a show is there for....wouldn't be very interesting if they were agreeing all day. Usually written pieces tend to be a little more honest and not so opiniated/convicted.

    Bayless is a rabble rouser, but I just happen to agree with him this time. Too bad for VY that he's made some questionable choices for somebody who was supposed to be an underdog and they cost him. The guy's just too unconventional while Reggie is unquestionably the best choice by conventional standards.

    The most interesting point that he made was about Kubiak being a "Vince guy" and Casserly being a "Reggie guy." I've been under the impression that Kubiak knew going into his interview that the decision to keep Carr and draft Bush had already been made beforehand.

    Just speculation. Isn't that why we're here?

    And probably just as spurious as the parts of the article we disagree with.

    You know what The Texans should do just to get everybody all bent and scratching their heads?

    Bring in Vince for one more interview.

    You should probably consider whether Kubiak is really most likely to let this kind of thing out thru Bayless. Just a thought. Other Bayless opinions include "outing" Aikman and repeatedly stating Irvin was what made the Cowboys teams both as a player and leader.

    No doubt...gotta take him with a grain of salt. I was living in Dallas back then (the Aikman "outing.") I think that book cost him his job at 1310.

    You'd be surprised how many Bubbas believed it.
    Aikman was afraid to even hug Irvin at the HOF induction because he said "there'd been rumors about him." (jokingly)

    There are certain things that are said on both sides of an interview in order to get a job.

    Main focus is to get the job and then figure out the details later. Someone probably coached Kubiak on their finer points and how to land the job. Keeping Carr very well could have been one of them.

    I don't like Bayless, but this article is right on target and is exactly what I've been saying for the last 4 months. The Texans are crazy if they past on Mike Jordan (errr Vince Young). :yahoo:

    OK Jim Rome. Did you know Michael Jordan was going to be Michael Jordan when he entered the league?

    Kubiak says he's a Vince guy. Team picks Bush. If Bush blows up, nobody's gonna remember and if they do, well, Kubiak can say he's glad he was wrong. It's a nice CYA move.

    If it's true that Kubiak has told sources with an s, this is just sad stuff. I'm still hoping we end up with Young, but I'll get over it if it doesn't happen. It says a ton about the team if this is the truth.

    I doubt Kubiak is that much of a wallflower.

    Do you honestly believe that ANY football player can have the impact on the NFL that MJ had on pro basketball? Vince Young is a good prospect, but he's not that good.

    IIRC, someone else got picked in the NBA draft before MJ, and he didn't do too bad himself, either.
