Seriously :confused:


I dont know if thats a great pick for them if its true, Defensive Ends dont always pan out when picked in the early first

This might mean the Jets have a crack at Bush

Now the Jets will be on their hands and knees to get the #2. We may be getting to know Reggie Bush quite well if this is true.

NYJ: Both First Round picks for NO's #2 and another 1st day pick (at least that is how I see it going down)

Wow, I'm shocked even though I thought Bush really wasn't a need in Houston. I doubt New Orleans would draft Bush but you would have to think the Titans at 3 would have to seriously consider Bush. Their running game isn't that impressive. As long as the Jets don't get him I don't care where he goes.

Is this true? Whoa. I can't say it's a bad pick though.

Texans are the dumbest people EVER flat out...Bush is gonna be an immediate impact for whom ever gets him. Mario Williams will not be as big of an impact both initially and overall

If Mario is gone with the first pick, why would the Saints pass on Bush? Jets would have to give them a whole lot...hope the Jets screw themselves.

Bush would not make an immediate impact for the Texans. Their offensive line is garbage compared to what he ran behind at USC. In Houston, he would have had to make his cut after his first or second step instead of 10 yards downfield.

IMO, the Saints can demand both of the Jets 1sts for Bush or they'd just take him and keep him. The Saints could probably get a 1st for McAllister because having two guys that good is ridiculous for a team with so little talent in other areas. Trading down is the smart move for NO, but then again, they're New Orleans. Is Payton another Jim Hasbeen? We'll see.

Or any other position for that matter.

i bought tickets to the october 10th game hoping to see bush in the lineup vs. the dolphins...... i still think they should have got him. mario is going to have to be REEEAL good for the houston fans to forget about bush.

The Jets aren't smart enough to get Bush.

Saints will take Ferguson.

Titans take Bush. (Chris Brown is fragile and Henry is well Travis Henry)

Within the first hour the Jets will have whichever QB they like staring them in the face at Radio City Music Hall.

There is the dilemma.

I think this will go down as one of the biggest draft blunders ever. Did the Texans hire Wanny or Speilman this past offseason?

Don't worry, they'll draft a Longsnapper.

Agreed... Not really worried... They could draft Bush and Ferguson and still find a way to suck on offense.

Personally, I think Bush is somewhat over-valued, having competed part time against Pac 10 defenses. I also think he's seriously lacking sufficient size to be a feature back worthy of the outrageous sums of money he'll command. But that's just me.

Regardless, the Jets can have him. The cost of them moving up two slots will be great.

Why wouldn't the Titans draft Bush? I think that Volek could be a capable starting QB.
