    We lose, we get Bush. We win, we trade the pick to the Jets for theirs and another pick? Is that the plan? Haven't been following this too closely.

    Edit: heh, had it backwards.

    But just as important is if we win, NO will have the #1, and they are in the market for a QB and may pass on Bush

    The Saints would then trade the #1 pick for a kings ransom to a team that wants Bush.

    But would the Saint's not want Leinart?

    They need a QB! We could take the Saint's hostage and threaten draft Leihart if they traded the picks to someone to get Bush!!!

    If the Saint's want Bush, the the Texans trade to someone who wants Leinart!!!

    I think the most likely "if the Texans win" scenario now, provided the Texans REALLY want Bush, is a swap with the Saints. Likely giving back the Saints their 3rd rounder back. The Saints obviously cares more for a QB upgrade than a RB upgrade. Leinert would be perfect for them.

    On the other hand, could the Texans look at Leinert as a possibility? It would be ironic for David Carr to win himself out of a job.

    I don't think that there is any way that the Saints would pass on Leinart. Teams could offer them a kings ransom for the pick, but by trading down they can't be guaranted that they can still get Leinart. Also look for Vince Young to get a look at that pick if he enters the draft. Bush will be a Texan, one way or another.

    Could you imagine going to the Saints? Do you want to play in Reliant Stadium or superdome. Man that sucks.

    With Carr, AJ, and Davis not playing, and Alex Smith somehow playing like a #1 pick, things are looking good for the Reggie Bush Bowl.

    Vince young coming out can make things very interesting.

    Problem is, Carr is going to get an extension...maybe!!!!

    If Carr is not the future field general, do the Texans go for Leinart or Young?

    David Carr is our biggest problem. Tony Banks is proving that.

    Where is Cat?
