You're The Better QB. No, You Are

There's no reason for the Texans to take anyone but Reggie Bush. There, I've said it. As good as Vince Young looked last night, Carr is a decent enough QB, he just needs to stopped getting smacked around back there. Which leads us to really the only alternative plan for the Texans. Trade the #1 pick for numerous other picks and shore up your O-line and defense.

But that's not the real story for me in this upcoming draft. The real story is checking to see how much Matt Leinart and Vince Young play each other up so that they
won't be the 2nd pick in the draft and go to the Saints. The winner of this game not only doesn't get to go to the Saints, but also gets to be picked by the Titans, a franchise exponentially better off than New Orleans, and work with QB coach extraodinaire Norm Chow.
