    To take Vince Young. When he first came out, I thought he was a lock to fall to us, but with Young coming out and saying he wants to play for the Texans and even if he isn't picked by them he will "always love Texas"....I know fans don't make the picks, but wow...the pressure will be intense.

    It would be dumb for the Texans to pick Young. Not only is he not ready to be an immediate starter (Leinart would be your guy there), but if he spends as much time on his back as Carr has the last couple of years, what's the use?

    When did he say he wants to play for the texans? I hadn't heard that. Sounds like a reach for top pick money to me...

    If the Texans take Young due to fan pressure, that franchise is in worse shape than I thought.

    Young grew up in Houston. Of course he would like to be the first pick and play in his home town.

    As stated elsewhere, the Texans are no longer on TV in Austin, as well as their radio network is shrinking.. this is an opportunity to take away significant market share from the Cowboys .. when you consider that this is a business, McNair will be forced to take VY

    I'd hate to have to face Young twice a year, but I'm sure a few slip screens to Reggie would ease my pain!

    I'd be surprised if Houston takes him. Their franchise needs a serious and immediate shot in the arm. I still think Kubiak can do more with Reggie than Vince.

    We better focus on getting some good MLB's or we will becomes Houston's Biatch w/ Bush and Davis in their backfield.
