    Re: Mario to Texans #1 a DONE DEAL ?!?

    The Texans would be stupid not to pick Reggie at #1, this is strictly for leverage purposes.
    ~ Totally agree with this. They want to make Reggie's asking price to come down. Business tactics. If they do stick with Mario, which I don't think they will, it will throw the draft out of wack

    I have been wondering about this the whole time. I just couldn't see them drafting a RB when they have Double D at RB, just like it doesn't make sense for the Packers to select a QB at No 5. Double D is not Reggie Bush, but he is proven even behind crappy O lines. If they are not taking Bush, then they should move down and take D-Brick.

    We will see tomorrow!

    I heard that the Saints want Bush at No 2 and if he is gone to the Texans, they want to move down and let a team like the Pack move up and take Mario Williams. Apparently, Hawk is the Pack's second choice not their first. Once again, we will see how this plays out?????
    If the Texans take Mario Williams, the Jets would be crazy not to do whatever was necessary to get Bush...they need him WAY MORE than the Saints do...plus the Saints could fill more holes with whatever they get from the Jets.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: Mario to Texans #1 a DONE DEAL ?!?

    this would mess up the draft i am not to sure the saints would take bush imo since they already have duece. which means that he would fall to 3 where the titans will most likely take bush because cris brown is not that great and then vince and lienert will be on the board and one will go at 7 and then maybe one to the cardinals and rams then we would almost be garrenteed to get cutler

    Now confirmed on NFL Network by Adam Shefter as he spoke with Mr. McNair with the Texans.

    what is confirmed? That they are talking more with Mario, or that they will be taking him.

    Thanks Lotza!

    Schefter Just said its true about the texans only talking to mario and havent spoken to bush in the last 24 hours. Nothing is reported on a "Done Deal" just yet.

    That McNair told Shefter that they had two plans. Take Bush and then trade into the end of 1st round and get a DE. "OR" Take Mario and then take a RB later in the draft ....

    McNair told Shefter that they are going with Plan "B" and that the contract has been finialized, not signed yet.

    It could be for leverage or it could be they don't want Bush do to have DD, and no one is willing to give enough to trade up.

    I wouldn't be suprised if they took super mario. I too would clap for their front office to have the balls to pass on bush.
