My boy? I think I mentioned him as a joke when people were stroking their poles over Bush rushing for 49 yards. Our RB is on the shelf right now, if he's done for good maybe we can draft a real runner, Adrian Peterson.

His rushing stats aren't that bad.

He hardly gets any carries at this point. Can't give a guy 10-15 carries and expect him to get in a groove and pump out a 4.5 YPC.

Why draft a RB? You guys got them already.

You realize I don't have the inside information on Domanick Davis's injury at the moment, don't you? If he's not showing positive recovery by the draft, going in that direction would not be a bad idea.

Agreed, but I also can't assume he will have good rushing stats given the carries, personally I don't see it.

miles is confusing the first 4 games of the season with the next 10 years. as if Reggie Bush will strictly not improve at all from this point on. yea right. "skill player?" RBs and QBs can be franchise cornerstones... with very, very few exceptions, that's it. you're not going to turn your franchise around with a defensive end most likely. but a Reggie Bush or Vince Young, possibly. and when you're the Texans and you pretty much suck at everything you take the best player available, especially when the best player available could be the best player ever.. this isn't Marvin Williams vs. Chris Paul kind of thing. This is Lebron vs. like... Josh Howard.

"Reggie Bush? Puuuhlease. He's got nothing on me. I am Eric Dickerson, he's Brian Westbrook. You a genius? No worries, it doesn't take one to figure out who the best RB is. While he's running around and getting his precious all-purpose yards, I'll be running at, around and dissipate defenders trying to bring me down."

More like LeBron vs. Eddie Griffin.(minus the insanity) Williams didn't really do anything at NC State. He was drafted totally on potential.

I love the Texan homers who's only argument for Mario is to trash Reggie even though he's done pretty good all ready returning kicks, punts, receiving, and rushing, whereas Mario only has, up until today, 8 tackles in 3 games!

Ernie Sims already has a 9 and 10 tackle game. I still can't get over what an awful pick that was.

Brian Westbrook is a damn good RB, this eras Marshall Faulk.

Nothing to be ashamed about. Reggie gonna pound it and get the tough yards? Nope.

He will get big gains on the outside & take a swing pass and turn that into a good/great gain, very much Brian Westbrook-like.

I'm not saying Reggie will only be as good as Westbrook, but he reminds me the most of Brian. He's a more explosive Brian Westbrook.

Mario may be a bust, but his stats through Week 4 aren't going to convince me it's been decided. Like I said earlier, it's not fair to either to judge them by the stats so far, as you're so willing to do for Bush.

Yea who needs Bush when you have Dominick 'One Leg' Davis. Dont just look at Bushs rushing stats, the guys a triple threat. He does special team and receives just as much as he rushes. And just by being on the field, he changes the other teams defense. Who knows, both of them might become studs or busts, but you do not pass on Jordan to draft Hakeem.

No, his stats so far are just gravy for my argument.

It's his craptastic college career that makes me think he sucks. Got all his sacks against total junk teams.

Depends on team needs.

If I have a weak front-court but have an all-star wing, I'm taking Dream without thinking twice.

Vice versa situation? It's not as easy. Two great big men would be an awesome situation. I'd probably go with Jordan, but it wouldn't be as easy as the frist choice in the first situation.
