    He had 2 NFC Championship games with no offense whatsoever but put up good numbers.

    Well, you could argue Williams did the same in NO and Miami. I mean, wasn't Jay Fiedler and Aaron Brooks QB's at that point...

    Brooks was actually good when the Saints made the playoffs. Williams barely rans for 1000 yards in NO.

    He did have that one good season in Miami, but other then that he wasnt all that good.

    If Houston doesn't pick Bush it will be because they trade down and take Brick or Justice and a handfull of other OL and defense. IMO that would be the best thing they could do. If Carr can improve like Plummer did under Kubiak with an improved OL Houston could be pretty good. Moulds and Johnson are a pretty darn good pair of WRs.

    Reggie Bush will be mediocre at best and on IR at worst behind that O-Line

    basically, picking Bush would be a waste of a pick

    if they just helped out Carr and DomDav by providing protection and run blocking then they wouldn't need Young or Bush (but I bet they'd want YoungBush :ha:)

    anyway, any pick other than D'Brick in round 1
    and Max Jean Giles in Round 2 would be a waste

    Bush will be better then Dom Davis, he has more moves and is much faster.
    Davis has success behind that line and so can Reggie.
    Plus the Texans have upgraded.

    Explain to me again, how that is not "all that good", considering opposing teams were focusing solely on stopping him?

    a 3.5 yard average is poor no matter how many yards you get. Eddie could have done what he did in 2003 if he had that many carries.

    1999 also poor.
    2000 was decent, 1000 yards in 10 games. 4 even average - same with 2001 just more yards.

    2002 was obviously a good season and he was the only focus then, what changed from every other year?

    Ricky Williams had a career YPC of 4.0 before his "incident", Tomlinson a 4.3 (4.0 if yo discount the freak year of 2003 where he got 5.9). Now there's no question Tomlinson is the better back, but it's ridiculous to say Williams wasn't any good.

    With the success Davis has on the Titans, imagine what Bush will have. I hate the thought of facing that guy twice a season for the next eight years.
