Did someone actually say this on 1st and 10?

You simply cannot trade up from 32nd to 1st.

About the only thing that is sure is that statements released have no real bearing on what their actual draft strategy will be.

I really cannot see them passing up Reggie Bush - if the hype is true then they cannot afford to miss out.

Texas is a huge market - they need the sort of player who fits right in there.

What the hell is "treble"?

"They need the sort of player who fits right in there"-What the hell does that mean?

If you went only on "huge market" then would'nt V.Young be a better fit? He would fill the seats would he not!

I'm pretty sure I have pointed you in the direction of dictionary.com in the past!

treble

2: three times as great or many; "a claim for treble (or triple) damages"; "a threefold increase" [syn: threefold, triple] 3: having three units or components or elements; "a ternary operation"; "a treble row of red beads"; "overcrowding made triple sessions necessary"; "triple time has three beats per measure";

Personally, I think you should have been able to work it out - considering the words either side of it meant two-fold and four-fold.

See if you can follow the logic on this one - Texas is a huge market, Reggie Bush is a massively talented player who played college ball for Texas - this means he would 'fit right in there'.

No-one can see the future, but I would bet a considerable amount of money that if you took it to a vote - that Vince Young would get 'treble' (see above for explanation) the amount votes of Reggies Bush in a poll to decide who was more likely to be a bust at pro level.

Bush played college ball for USC (University of Southern California) against Texas in the Rose Bowl ;)

Hey this is fun!

I see them taking Young or Lienart #1 "the extension of Carrs is only 3 years not 7 or 8" like the GM mentioned.

Gah!

You are quite correct. Bush is a Texas native is what I meant.

That was a bad slip-up for sure - and yes, before say it, I do know Vince Young's college team is Texas and not USC.

Good spot all the same.

Idiot, I know what treble means. I think it was just stupid to use it the way you did. I've been in my share of arbitration hearings and know all about triple damages. You just go the extra yard. I said earlier, you come across as FORCED!

No matter how you try to redeem yourself the "he would fit right in there" sounds hillbillyish! Now I know that MA has some really stupid people there, but I thought that was only in your government! Guess I was wrong!

I thought that Bush was from the "619"?

"before say it" - WTF is going on here. Thought you never make mistakes.

You are calling me an idiot?

How would you suggest I use the word treble...maybe instead of the word five-fold? Would that make more sense to silly stalker?

There are stupid people everywhere AugustaStalker - you just happen to be the most stupid on this website.

If you dont want me to keep explaining things to you - stop asking.

Just like you.......it really is that simple.

Poor stalker,

A day late and a dollar short - story of your life eh?

I was sure you would pounce on that mistake - but you got beaten to the punch by someone who wasn't even posting on this topic beforehand ha ha.

Thanks for the cheap entertainment.
