    1. Mario Williams-DE, (Houston Texans)
    2. Reggie Bush-RB, (New Orleans Saints)

    I, much like everyone else, was shocked to hear that Reggie wasn't going to be a Texan. Even though Bush played well with the Saints this year, I absolutely think they nailed the pick. Super Mario is a beast and will be for a very long time. I still think it cost Charlie Casserly his job, which I think is a huge mistake. His reason for drafting a DE; "When you play the Colts twice a year, if you can't rush the passer you won't win the division." I have a lot of respect for Casserly and I think he put the Texans in a position to continue to be very competitve in the next few years.

      And this is partial evidence that addressing the position in need is vital for turning a team around rather than reliance on the BPA. I can only imagine the Texans being a ship full of holes if they went after Reggie.

        I have a lot of respect for Casserly also. And, Casserly also mentions that he really likes Bradford and thinks that he will be a star.


        The 2006 draft was definitely not one of my favorite.

          Not so sure about that. I think it was a huge mistake to consider him the best player in the draft. The Bush bandwagon was way out of control. The only thing the guy was bringing to the NFL was speed and even then it wasn't like he had Deion Sanders or Darrell Green speed. That just isn't enough. Goes to show you what happens when you listen to the hype machine.

              Texans already getting ripped for this gaffe

              If the Houston Texans weren't going to draft the best player on the board, then they should have drafted for need. And defensive end Mario Williams is not what they need most.

              Tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson is.

              Ask quarterback David Carr. He's the poor sap who was sacked an NFL-high 68 times last year. And 49 times the year before that. And 76 times in his rookie season. The guy's not a quarterback; he's a piņata.


              David Carr can expect a lot more of this after the Texans' No. 1 pick. (Getty Images)
              But he's Houston's piņata, with the Texans making a commitment to him when they could've chosen University of Texas quarterback Vince Young or USC's Matt Leinart. If the Texans honestly believe he can be a franchise passer -- and they sure act like it -- then why not give the guy a chance to fulfill their expectations?

              Why not give him someone who can block?

              It sounds so simple, yet I could understand where the Texans were going. They would draft Bush because he's the best player in the draft and because he could breathe life into a sluggish offense. And if they didn't, they would trade down -- accumulating picks so they could find the parts necessary to keep Carr in one piece and make the club healthy at the same time.

              Fat chance.

              Instead of bailing out Carr with the best running back to come along in years -- maybe decades ... instead of turning to Bush to take some of the heat off Carr and a beleaguered passing attack ... instead of turning to the best offensive lineman in this year's draft ... instead of trading down to pick up draft picks ... they did the unthinkable and chose Mario Williams.

              Nothing against Mario Williams; I just don't see how he's going to handle Dwight Freeney.

              "We have to look at it on the basis of what our needs are and how that player can add value to our team," owner Bob McNair said on Thursday, foreshadowing what was to happen. "Yes, temporarily, some of the fans might be unhappy with the pick. But, long term, what counts is whether you win.

              "If we pick a popular player, temporarily, everybody is happy. But then if you don't win then they say, 'Well, that was the dumbest pick I've ever seen. Why did you listen to me? You're supposed to be the professional.' The bottom line is we have to win, so we'll pick the best player who gives us the best chance to win."

              Fair enough. But McNair started that discussion by saying the Texans had to look at "what our needs are." Question: Is there anything Houston needs more than an offensive lineman who knows how to pass block? The Texans have holes the size of the Astrodome in their front five,...

              From the Texans MB
              by Bar-bq
              A series of quotes from Texas fans from www.texanstalk.com

              "Man, I am so angry. I have been so excited about getting Bush since we lost to the *****(in my mind, it was a no brainer)

              There has been a lot of talk about Williams filling a bigger need for us than Bush. I totally don't agree one bit. I think our biggest need is to help out David Carr, and Bush would definitely do that as well as take some pressure off of Johnson and new WR Moulds.

              Also, I read a quote from Kubiak that said we weren't going to be able to outgun the Colts, even with Bush. That maybe might be true, but how is Williams going to help? I am not impressed with him from what I've seen. 10 of his sacks last year came in 3 games against horrible teams. He only has sacks in 16 of his 36 games total in college.
              Sure, he did have an awesome draft combine, but from everything I have seen his play at NC State, I haven't been impressed.

              Not only that, this is going to kill ticket sales. I was so excited about getting a Bush jersey and going to games and watch him do the amazing stuff that he does.
              I don't think very many people want to go watch an overrated DE, especially knowing we could have had so much better.

              I keep wishing that maybe this isn't real and there's someway the Texans can still draft Bush tomorrow, but I know that isn't possible. "

              "That was some smokescreen! I was shocked to hear on 610 and confirmed in the chronic that it happened. That changes the draft"

              "This SUCKS. I am PISSED!!!!!!!!!!

              What the hell, man? They're giving a DE a GUARANTEED TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS!! Bush only wanted 24.6. WTF?!? "

              "This is BS. WTF are they thinking."

              "God, and they're showing the Rose Bowl on ESPN Classic right now, too.

              I can't express how angry I am right now. If you don't want Bush or Young, you freaking TRADE DOWN. Even for a crappy offer. YOU TRADE THE F DOWN. "

              "He Screws us over every freaking year. "

              " have to go drink. This is too much to take."

              "I think I'm going to buy Reggie Bush and Vince Young jerseys, regardless of where they go, and wear one of them to EVERY SINGLE GAME THIS YEAR. "
