Texans take Young, we take....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If the Saints take anyone but a QB in the first round then you can count on another long season. Plus there is little reason to believe that the Texans will take another QB in round one. Unless they trade ...

If the Saints take anyone but a QB in the first round then you can count on another long season. Plus there is little reason to believe that the Texans will take another QB in round one. Unless they trade it for like 3 OL men its not gonna happen. Texans will take Bush regardless of Young entering the draft. Of course we are talking about the same Texan team who claimed Brian Boselli as their "franchise" choice....
Anyway Saints have to have either Young or Leinhert.

Trade down and get some defense......Once Free Agency starts let's see what QB's are out there, and get someone with some veteran leadership.

Trade down get Hawk and then get a veteran QB in here. Trade Brooks to another team any team for a QB with some experience. Kitna, Collins hell anybody is better than what we have.

Must take Bush

If the Texans are dumb enough to take Young we MUST take Reggie Bush. We then sign Air McNair as our QB for the interim when the Titans reunite Leinart and Norm Chow.
I'll take my chances with McNair, Duece, and Bush in the backfield over Leinart and Duece.
You take the money saved on Brooks cutting and pay McNair less and you take the money you get by dropping Howard and give it to Bentley. Draft a LB in the second round and a LT in the third and hope either Stinchcomb comes back hardcore or you can move Brown over to LT some time down the line.
After a year or two with McNair you hand the reigns to AMAC.
It's as simple as that folks.
You do not pass on the next Gail Sayers.

Yes rookies struggle. Exactly how many years is a player a rookie? And you expect us to be winning the Superbowl or somethign next year anyway? If not, who cares if a rookie QB struggles. He's a rookie. But not having to worry about the QB position for 10 years is priceless.

Stockman, I am gonna take what you said point by point:

If the Texans are dumb enough to take Young we MUST take Reggie Bush. We then sign Air McNair as our QB for the interim when the Titans reunite Leinart and Norm Chow.
Steve McNair is currently speaking to ownership about working a deal to lower his salary and stay with the Titans, which HE OFFERED TO DO, so he could stay there. Even if he doesn't, his injury history speaks for itself.

I'll take my chances with McNair, Duece, and Bush in the backfield over Leinart and Duece.
You won't have to since we won't get McNair, he would prob play only 10 games or less, and what Deuce is a fullback in that plan? Unreal.

Draft a LB in the second round and a LT in the third and hope either Stinchcomb comes back hardcore or you can move Brown over to LT some time down the line.
So we are making moves based on hope? Move our best RT to play LT sometime down the line? We don't have a 3rd round pick either. Boy, this plan is looking better and better.

After a year or two with McNair you hand the reigns to AMAC.
It's as simple as that folks.
You do not pass on the next Gail Sayers.
You also don't pass on the next Peyton manning since we are throwing out superlatives before either plays an NFL down. Who wouldn't want Peyton on their team? Case closed.
