Default Re: texans agree to deal with mario williams

I really, REALLY dont want to see Reggie Bush playing for the Jets next year.

Question is, who has the draft pick weaponry to trade up and get him from the Saints?

Jets have two 1st rounders.

If the Saints were to take him (they have said they would jump at the chance, but probably thought they never would get the opportunity) then what would happen to Deuce McAllister?

I can't believe the Texans have passed on Reggie and then not picked D'Brickshaw!

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

First, I see Bush sporting a Jets jersey next year. Should be interesting.

Second, if the Texans were going to draft a lineman, why not take the best offensive lineman available? For a team that gave up 68 sacks last season, I would think that would be priority #1.

Third, in my opinion the Texans could have traded down in the first, maybe with the jets, and picked up an extra pick and still have gotten Mario Williams.

You should always build defense first. Opposing OB's had a passer rating of over 100 on them last year. that being said, i agree with your trading down point. there is enough talent in this drft that 2 picks out of the first 60 are worth more than one top pick.

I understand and I agree that you build a defense first, but I still feel they should have picked up the best o-lineman and then worried about a defense. If I was picking later in the rounds, then it would be a totally different story.

The Texans did have a good board....


.......but they traded it for a conditional 2025 7th rounder.
