The winner of this is the Saints. Who will be able to trade the pick now.

Your right.The Saints have the golden pick now with Bush hanging there for the taking. It's obvious they don't need a RB so they either trade or Bush is there for #3.

The saints don't have a running back like reggie. Duece is alway hurt and reggie would make anyone defend them differently.

How else can you help Drew Brees then by giving him an LT like playmaker?

Surprising, but I think maybe they had some character concerns considering the things that have come out about Bush's family home.

There is no way that Reggie Bush is not selected by the New Orleans Saints at #2.

1. The NFL is a business- In New Orleans, they need to sell tickets, jerseys, etc. This is a franchise that is struggling to fill their stadium on a regular basis.

2. He is the BPA- You don't fill needs in the top 5. That is why you saw Mario going 2 in almost every mock draft the previous week even though Will Smith and Charles Grant are good players.

3. You will not get equal value in a trade- You won't find another Bush anytime soon. Trading down for lets say, A.J. Hawk and a 2nd plus a 1st rounder in 07 will not be equal value.

I guess GB, OAK, NYJ and there was one more team that have called about the 2nd Overall pick from the Saints.

I just read your last post overmine...Great Point! I think he would absolutly sell seats well atleast for a few weeks..

I'm kind of surprised that they passed on bush, but it makes tomorrow more exciting. Hopefully teams look to trade up and it causes a playmaker or two to fall.

You guys dont understand. Reggie Bush is not just a RB. Hes a WR/RB/KR/PR/MISMATCH NIGHT MARE. Who do you put on him when he comes out of the backfield and runs a straight route. Thers only like 5 safties in the league who can keep up with him and you can put a corner in the box because he will get run over. Reggie Bish makes your whole offense better. The Oline, Andre Johnson, David Carr, Dominick Davis and whatever other scrubs they got on O. All I have to say is that its a good thing that a team who is recently an expasion did this because a city like Philly, Detroit, Chicago, New York, Oakland, Dallas, Miami, would have burned there stadium down if there team made such a stupid move. Heres an idea Houston. TRADE DOWN. Somone would have gave them a 2nd. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

I am not going to be able to sleep tomarrow. The draft plus by prom. This is better than Christmas.

Dominic Davis is the only reason why

Running backs are a dime a dozen its the smartiest move Houstons ever made taking MArio Williams hes a stud on the defensive line and will make there whole defense better.


Saints wont get many takers for the number 2 pick, Running backs dont carry much weight in other teams eyes not too mention Saints want the huge tackle bad.

Yeah geting offers and accepting them are 2 different things, we will see if they actually trade the pick and lose out on Franchise tackle.

Anyway Lions should Still draft M HUff you win with a great defense in the NFL not a Great Offense and we need a play making saftey bad!~

Oh the lions should draft Huff if he is there. No doubt he is my pick.

The saints should not pass on reggie...who knows if they will...but from everything they say Reggie is the man. Drew Brees called reggie tonight and said I hope you are my future teammate. Drew needs Reggie.
