    ---Young, who played at Madison High School and led the University of Texas to the national title this year, has been campaigning like a politician to become a Texan. The Texans are listening, but they've got three months before they have to make a decision.---

    why would he do that, if he wants to play with Steve ?

    Because there's at least 20 million dollars difference in the contract for the 1st and 3rd pick.

    Dollars and sense. He'll always be a friend to Steve, but the money and prestige between 1 and three is another thing.

    Yeah, it's all about the bottom line. And being the hometown boy, his money wouldn't spend in Houston.

    This makes me wonder if the Titans are wanting Leinart. We have a history of misdirection - rarely will the titans talk up the player they want to draft. How many of us though P.Jones would be the pick? Remember them talking up Sammy Davis at CB and taking Woolfolk instead?

    It just makes me wonder if the organization is already playing the game\.

    I'm sure there'll be some scouting comments on Leinart as well before it's over. Hope Vince doesn't win the Texans over, but I'm equally worried about the Saints in that regard. The only positive to the Texans taking Young is the Saints would take Leinart, and we'd get Bush if we wanted him.

    I thought Antrell Rolle was our pick last year, as did ESPN.com on the draft counter. It said Antrell Rolle then minutes later it corrected with Adam Jones. Everyone on IRC was like "who?"

    Jones over Rolle was not that surprising given our need for a returner as well.
