    I read that there was a rumour that the Dolphins were talking with the Texans involving Ricky Williams and a draft pick for David Carr. The reason the the Texans would do so would be to draft Young.

    It doesn't make sense to me on the Texans behalf. First off, Davis right now is better than Ricky. Ricky's to similar to what they have in Houston already. He's not a change of pace, split out wide, take it the distance type that Bush is.

    It would be cute to see an all Texas backfield with Young and Williams but I don't see it. I don't think Ricky is the angel of Texas fans eyes' after pulling the stuff with quiting and all but it could be viewed as a P.R. move with the owner panicing about his fan base deserting him as they did the Oilers a little less than a decade ago.

    I would rather see us give the Texans our 2nd round pick for Carr. We could get Bush and Carr if that were the case.

    Carr's good and all, but I don't want him here. Wherever he goes, he'll expect to start.

    Houston's got the hype-nitis.

    This makes sense for the Dolphins. Makes no sense for Texans imho.

    Sounds a little odd to me personally. I mean, Miami wanting to dump Ricky because of Ronnie makes sense, but I dunno, it just seems like a strange scenerio. If it goes down, I'll be somwhat surprised.
