    Bush had a good game, but you don't notice the 3rd best players in the game when Young had 40000000 yards and LenDale White had 38 Touchdowns.

    Bob McNair wants a winner soon, after all he paid $7 or 8 hundred million dollars if I'm not mistaken... Bush and the Denver zone blocking scheme will make the Texans formidable and will provide Carr the time he needs to pass to Bush and Johnson.. more importantly they don't have to wait 32 games for Vince to get his NFL legs.. so they will take Bush IMO, and we will take possibly the next Elway (VY)

    This post should actually read: Texans fans prefer young. Houston is already on record as saying they will pick up the 8 million dollar option on Carr and will take Bush. If in fact they do pick up Carr's option the only other logical thing for them to do is trade the pick!

    GO TITANS!!!

    GM Casserly won't be a popular man if they pick Bush.

    The fans want Young and the players don't want Bush, they'd rather Dom Davis and if I were Davis I would demand a trade.

    My scenarios
    1. Young falls, Titans pick Young, then work on DEF
    2. Bush falls, Titans pick Bush, the Omar Jacobs, then DEF(trade Billy Volek)
    3. Leinhart falls, Titans trade down, use extra picks to work on DEF and pick Jay Cutler

    Not that John McLain knows everything, but he said numerous times that the Texans will not let Young fall to the Titans and that they won't pass him up. Said it very emphatically.

    I dont think we could move down to far and still get Cutler.

    ok, look Vince Young is not the next Elway
    or the next Steve Young

    he may be the next Randall Cunningham
    or Donovan McNabb (my guess)
    maybe a better Mike Vick (whatever that is)
    or a carbon copy of Steve McNair

    listening to John McClaine, you'd think that Bob MCNair would commit hari-kari if he passed on Young. Young grew up 5 miles from Reliant stadium

    Vince Young is to Houston what Jay Cutler is to Nashville
    thats why I think he'll b a Texan

    Casserley is in a no win situation. he is going to piss off 66% of the fans with whatever he does on draft day. 1/3 want Bush, 1/3 Young, 1/3 trade down. I'd hate to be in his shoes because he knows that whoever he passes on has a great chance to be a Titan and that they will face them twice a yr. Reese has to love his spot.

    I honestly don't care who we take of the top 3 or if trade down for a kings ransom because we will be upgrading our talent level without question and getting a premier player.
