    First off I live in Los Angeles; Originally from Baytown. I been to several USC Games. Reggie Bush is a football player first and foremost, I don't care if Reggie Bush was a kicker. You draft this guy cause he's one HELL of a football player! We have D. Davis, SO FREAKIN WHAT!!! He's not big enough, he can't carry the ball 20-30 times a game So what! What are the chances of a team to have the #1 overall pick in a draft and a player that comes around just say every 5-10 years? what are those chances?You take that player over needs anyday and don't look back. Reggie Bush is Versatile! He can line up as a wide out 10 plays a game, Kick returns along side Mathis, think about that, what team would kick to Mathis and Reggie Bush?? Texans would have the best field position in the league! The Texans would always have fresh legs in the backfield that always be a threat to go all the way! He could save D. Davis 3-4 years on his career cause he don't have to carry the load by himself. Gaffeny is a UFA, Bradford is a UFA. We don't have a passing T. E. how many playmakers in the top 10 of this coming Draft? Name me one Wide Receiver worth taking Top 10? Now tell me how deep are the OT's in this year Draft? how many can you name? How Many OG's in this year's draft? The OL are so deep in this draft it's ridiculous! Draft Bush he'll sell tickets, Merchandise, Commercials, More TV Coverage.Freeagents like Offensive Lineman would want to play here to block for a tandem like Reggie Bush and D. Davis, that will open up the passing game. Go out and sign Randle EL. It may be 10 years before we have the #1 pick in the draft again; and how many changes it will be to draft the Next Barry Sanders?? Coaches will drool to coach the tadem, Andre Johnson would love not to have all the attention on him.Reggie Bush is a must have on this team. I'll rather for him to turn out to be a bust on this team and not to have hdrafted him ;and he becomes the next superstar like Barry Sanders; then the only thing we Fans could say is "We could of had him" Like we say about Jordan, but we drafted Hakeem.Another thing; last year all the mocks had us taking Cedric Benson from Texas; and everyone was so excited about that, Damn near every mock draft had us taking Cedric Benson!!! Why oh Why do we take him if we didn't need a RB??? Reggie Bush is 5X's the player Cedric Benson is!! I swear on my Grandma's grave if Reggie Bush plays on the Horns we would'nt even be having this conversation. Reggie Bush will be the Texans pick by 50 miles!

    That is a great post, but people don't understand the depth at OL this year. They don't know what free agency can do either. But no matter what, we are going to get a great player one way or the other.

    I think that if Reggie Bush went to Texas, we wouldn't be having this argument.

    1) Bush is a Brian Westbrook/DeShaun Foster, not Barry Sanders.

    2) The Patriots could win with Antowain Smith. You don't need a stud RB, you just need one that can do the job.

    3) Two kick return specialists on the field = 1 less good blocker = lack of good returns

    4) Ticket sales do not produce winning seasons. Irrevalent to the argument.

    5) Free agents go for money, period.

    6) Cedric Benson can take hits, and can carry the load. Reggie Bush is unproven in taking hits and carrying the load.

    7) In the last few years, the only stud RBs to be drafted from the Pac-10 and become prominent players were Corey Dillon and Steven Jackson. They are power runners. Maybe you can count DeShaun Foster, but he's not exactly super impact aside from that Super Bowl year. Reggie Bush is not a Pac-10 power runner, so he is destined to not succeed.

    8) USE THE ENTER KEY.

    You can't really base someone's future on what others have done. If so, LaDanian Tomlinson should be a terrible running back because how many great backs have come from TCU? The Pac-10 has had several great running backs. I know you are saying recently, but how can you ignore Marcus Allen and OJ Simpson? But I guess because Reggie Bush chose to go to USC rather than any other school in the nation, he must be terrible.

    While Cedric Benson can carry the load, he also has a lot of miles on him. That is what made Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown so much more attractive.

    I don't think that having both Jerome Mathis and Reggie Bush would hurt us on kick returns. Both are so fast that they initially blow by those first blockers anyways.

    I hate Proving people Wrong Cedric Benson may be in college! but not in the NFL its sad when thomas jones and Adrian Peterson Produce more than Benson. and when he does get on the field he gets injured i rather have Bush on crutches than Benson like all the major scouts say Bush is the real deal they go as far as saying he is the Best coming out of college in a long time.:texflag:

    Scouts say that about everyone all the time. Hello, Mr. Leaf.

    True, I admit that I probably whiffed on my Benson remark, but regardless, I'd rather have him over Bush for the fact that he _can_ play physical.

    What do we know about Bush? He plays with great players, and he dances.

    What do we not know about Bush? How does he perform when he's not with great players and when Lendale White can't do his dirty work for him?

    If you want a stud RB so badly, draft DeAngelo Williams or Lendale White. Save money, save draft picks, get better value.

    Why can't we just have the first 10 picks in the draft? :texflag: We've earned it. :brickwall

    Bush is a really good player, is he that much better than any other prototype RB in the draft not likely. I am not a guy that thinks we need a RB, if we lose Gaffney and Armstrong then Bush becomes a better option, due to the fact that he can be trained to play WR. I hope we get extra picks, even a next year first rounder. Quit the madness people Reggie Bush is not the best player to come out in 10 years.

    Bush will be a top pick, but a lot of these threads have started due to our poor record, which could get better, and his 500 yard performance against Fresno, which has lost its luster after two bad losses.

    I doubt he will be the top pick on his on-field skills alone. He will have to be the total package such as character and mareketability to make up for the few knocks in his game - size, strength and endurance.

    Actually the Rockets coulda had both Akeem and Jordan .... but they took Rodney McRay. (Spelling?)


    But I for one agree , Bush is that special player that comes along once in 10 years or so , you HAVE to take him or get some MIND BLOWING trade in return .

    BTW Olajuwon was drafted #1 in the 1984 draft and Michael Jordan was drafted #3 that same year. How could the Rockets have picked both unless they traded back up to get Jordan?

    I actually remember reading that there was an offer on the table to get the third pick as well, but they decided against it.

    A block of text that long can be hard on the eyes.

    If for some reason we draft Bush I would put him at punt return, that isn't really Mathis' strength. Punt returns you need to be quick to avoid all the rushers that are converging on you, whereas on kick returns your blockers create a lane for you to run through so straight-line speed is all you really need, but punt returns you are hung out to dry more and need to create on your own, and Mathis isn't as good at Bush or even Buchanon at that.

    Let's see, I'm Bob McNair an I draft...hmmm


    Reggie Bush, who may become one the most exciting players in the NFL....
    Draft LT's and RT's throughtout the rds 2 & 3
    Pick up Linemen in Free Agency or trade a back for one
    Get people back in the stands


    or I...


    ...draft someone else and watch us cheer for Mathis to catch balls as a WR.


    Think about how excited people are JUST to watch Mathis returns kick and we pass on Bush when we can replace linemen through FA and the Draft?

    Makes no sense to me but we all have our own ideas where we want this team to go. I have NO PROBLEM with getting Brick or trading down, but for me, I'd rather watch Bush play.

    I still think that we'll win some more games before the year is over and will be picking around the 3-5 pick range. By then, Bush is gone.

    benson is already out for the season with an injury, after only 30 or so carries.

    really, you folks should buy a vowel.
