    If this belongs in the NFL thread, sorry. Just made me think again about how much smarter the Texans were for picking Mario!

    Just a look at the stats line or just being an average fan paying average attention to the NFL would tell you we made the right draft pick. Having said that, I still have heartburn about all the flak the Texans AND Mario took over the pick.

    Yeah I know. It's just crazy to see that one team didn't get their money's worth and the other barely has or hasn't gotten their money's worth.

    As a Texan would say, "ain't but one team got it's money worth out of this deal." History shows that the Texans made the right pick, but a lt of media types still put us in a bad light becaus of it. A bunch of Kieth Olbermann's with jock sraps tied to their chins clamor abou VY's wnning record or Bush's...does he even have any records??? Of any kind of records that don't pertain to college just get ?!?!?!?!?!!?!!!?!??!!?

    I do think that if Reggie goes to Philly, they will make him a more utilized part of their offense than New Orleans needed to. Westbrook had a great career under Philly's scheme and I think that Bush could provide the same kind of player.

    Back at the time the pick was made , only ONE person on this forum had MW as the pick ..... Kaiser Toro.

    Everyone else was having a bitchfest over VY and RB.

    I think you are missing someone else but KT called it first.

    I believe Bush would thrive in that situation, but it has to be cost effective first. You don't see any top 10overall picks as 3rd down backs for a reason. Unless Oakland drafted one when I wasn't paying attention. Or Smith drafted one that played tight end in high school baseball.

    Bush and VY are busts and MW has become a VERY solid player. His stats might not blow you away, but his over all product on the field is hard to beat.

    That may or may not be true. I was a RB fan til I paid closer attention. I can't remember if MW was even on my radar,though so I can't argue that point.

    Hulk75 pm'd me on that Wednesday before the Saturday draft, IIRC, and said the Texans top brass had told David Carr (his brother) that it was going to be Reggie Bush all the way...and Hulk75 said his brother (David) was stoked.

    Then, when it went down on the news that we had a tentative agreement in place with MW's agent prior to the draft...I pm'd Hulk75 and said "What happened from the time you told me this and it became that?"

    He replied that David was shocked. He (Hulk75, real name is Darren, IIRC) was shocked.

    And that, my friends, was the beginning of the end for DC. I think at THAT point, when he knew he had been lied to so that the media would not find out about MW ahead of time, DC knew he was on the outs and he wasn't as "in" with the higher ups as he thought he was.

    Here DC thought he was getting this great weapon in the backfield to help him out, especially it being a West Coast California kid like himself, and it turns out they totally lied to him. LOL. Ouch.
