adam schechter is reporting that there is a LOT of things coming from texans' camp that suggests they're not as interested in reggie bush as once believed. they're going to start contract discussions with mario williams, and still haven't started with bush. other news: the raiders are bringing in matt leinart for a workout, and the browns and vikings are looking at vince young.

i think they will, BUT i really do not tthiink that they need him, they have dominack davis who has potential and talent, they would be smart to trade down or pick up another need

could be smokescreens. if they did end up drafting williams would make for even more interesting draft day.

Im starting to get the sense that theres going to be a lot of trades in this years draft. Too many teams picking high that dont have a clear favorite and too much talent at the top of this draft for teams not to bite on. I just hope we are fortunate enough to find someone to trade down with.

Don't forget the games that are always played by organizations come this time in April. You're kidding yourself if you think that Houston is thinking about anyone but Bush. Now, is Houston willing to entertain trade options? Ofcourse. The texans are looking for a team willing to give up the better part of their draft and then some to move up to # 1, but no one will bite.

Can you imagine if Bush was not selected by Houston at #1, that would make it very probable for the Jets to land him considering New Orleans has a clear cut franchise back in Deuce McCallister. This would be a nightmare for all dolfans.

Who's kidding who? You have to be foolish to think they are solely thinking about Bush.

I think they are looking at other options, but I would bet on them taking Bush. Especially if they stay at 1. Now I think they realize they are a lot more than one player away from being a contender. SO IF some team comes and offers a LOT of picks to move up to that 1 spot, then they MAY do it.

I for one do not believe anyone is going to offer enough to make Houston not draft Bush.

For the next two weeks until the draft, don't believe much of anything you hear about who teams are interested in and who they are not. This time of the year (right before the draft) ALL teams (GM's) bluff/lie.

Adam Schefter is, as usual, talking out of his back pipe. This is the guy who said last year that we absolutely wouldn't take a running back. He's fallen squarely into the trap marked "You are a fool to believe anything in the last 2 weeks before the draft".

The only way they do anything is if they get a blockbuster offer. Houston are merely getting Bush to start discussing money, by using Super Mario as a tool.

If you guys think Houston isn't going to take Bush, then the smokescreen is working. The only way Houston doesn't take Bush, is if one of the teams that are drafting in the top 5, give up their ENTIRE draft for the #1 spot.

For those of you who say Houston already has a running back, you are correct, but so did USC. With Domanick Davis and Vernand Morency, it will allow the Texans to use Bush exactly like he was used at USC. Which will allow him to quickly become a superstar.

He will get 10 - 15 carries a game, line up at wide receiver, and return punts.
Jerome Mathis will still return kickoffs, but he does not have the quickness needed to return punts.

yeah didn' schefter pretty much guarantee that we'd take braylon edwards?

If Texas does draft Bush I hope they can put a solid team around him, otherwise you got Barry Sanders all over again. A great player on a bad team.

They already have a solid team around him. They just had HORRIBLE coaching.

David Carr
Andre Johnson
Eric Moulds
Jeb Putzier
Jerome Mathis
Domanick Davis
Reggie Bush

That is one SCARY offense.

they still have big questions in several areas on the defense.

That's true. I think they are going to look like the Colts of 2 or 3 years ago. Scary offense, but can't stop anybody. They are going to win and lose a lot of shootouts.

I still think they're Oline is questionable. WR depth is also a concern. The defense has plenty of holes. Doesn't help they have Indy and Jax in their division either, although they always play Jax tough.

They have Mike Flanagan at Center now. That will allow the rest of the linemen to shift to different positions. That and LT were the line's biggest holes. They will draft an OT in the 2nd round to fill the final hole.

As far as WR goes, that is one of their deepest positions. They have Andre Johnson, Eric Moulds, Jerome Mathis, Derrick Armstrong (Best hands on the team.) Reggie Bush will also count as a WR.

It is a tough division though. The Colts are always tough, The Jags are tough although the Texans beat them quite often, and the Titans will be better too.

the titans will have growing pains with a new QB, they should probably finish in last. unless matt leinart starts every game then they'll win the division. :)

If they want to smokescreen teams they should talk to Brickshaw.

I really dont think Texans want Bush. I think they have to take him.

Kind of off topic. Does anyone remember how The Raiders fleeced Casserly and the Texans in a trade for Phillip Buchanon. How bad was that.

Maybe Bush is the smokescreen for D'Brick :wink:

Kubiak knows the value of a dominant Oline. Thats been my bold prediction for awhile now.

Yeah, and Buchanon is still on the roster. Casserly blew that one.

I don't think any team in the NFL can say they don't want Bush. Once in a generation prospect, IMO.

yes but he also knows you don't have to spend too much in getting good linemen for his system.

Correct. He needs the smaller, quicker o-linemen that most teams don't want.

Same here. I just read an article (probably the one UF is talking about), on either NFL.com or ESPN.com that, that basically said the reasons why it doesn't look likely the Texans will take Bush, and, aside from the contract talks point, and the fact that they didn't roll out the red carpet for him and he didn't meet everyone, they are the reasons I have been saying.

They JUST signed Davis to a new deal, and, given a line, he is a very capable runner (as would Carr be a very capable QB given an O-Line and a CHANCE to throw without getting sacked), and they have the return man already, and there are already questions about whether or not Bush can be an every down workload back in the NFL. Those are the reasons I don't think they should, or will, take Bush. If I were them I would trade down and get D'Brick (and extra picks) and finally get Carr some protection and give Davis a big upgrade to run behind. They COULD draft Bush and then trade him, like the Manning/Rivers situation. They could also draft him and keep him, which I think would be a mistake, but I really think they will trade down, or draft him and trade him, thye don't need him.

People here in New Orleans aren't so high on Duece that they would want to pass Bush.
