    Davis will first have to get over his injury.

    LMAO. KC fans and Raider Fans seem to have more and more in common every year. Greatness.

    Preseason means nothing, Ryan Leaf had a fantastic preseason. Look at what happend to him.

    Julious Peppers also was getting destroyed during the preseason and offseason/training camp workouts as a rookie. Look at him now. Just have to wait and see.

    My gut feeling tells me he will be solid, Bush will be solid as well. But I dont see him lasting long even though hes Juicing up.

    No I wasn't blaming th o-line but I was thinking of the many times Bush is hurdling a player submarining him because someone missed an assignment or the defenses were throwing the kitchen sink at him to try to stop them. But you have to admit that at the college level, even with top recruits there is a huge learning curve, especially with a free-lance runner such as Bush.

    Reggie Bush's explosiveness off the break is rivaled by few. His style of running is drawn out of necessity. He had to dance a lot because of missed assignments in the USC blocking schemes. In Denver he wouldn't have that trouble and would literally explode out of the blocks. His juking would have to come into play in the secondary and IMHO he would break the rushing TD mark in Denver's system in his first year. I'm glad I wasn't the GM having to make that decision though.

    in all honesty i think the texans did right. While bush would have added a threat i think davis in kubes theme will be awesome. Hell he had 1k seasons multiple years before now with a horrible line. They needed defense and got a good end, one preseason game doesnt entail what a player can do

    Denver's scheme is any RB's dream, and just because Reggie Bush does a lot of dancing does not mean he can't learn to "one-cut and go". Also you can't just measure Reggie Bush's impact in a football sense, you have to remember that he would have brought an air of excitement around that franchise like no other. Mario Williams will not pack seats and sell jerseys like Reggie Bush can and will.

    I'm not saying the Texans wouldn't have benifitted, I'm saying they wouldn't have gotten anywhere near his full potential. Heck, they wouldn't have gotten half of his potential out with the Denver system, and thus a good DE to help their pathetic defense/pass rush was the better choice.

    They already picked up Moulds to go along with Andre Johnson for passing threats, Davis is an ideal back for the Denver system when he gets healthy, they used the first 2 picks in the 3rd round drafting O-linemen to prepare there, and aside from that O-line their weakest area was their defense which was horrible.

    Does Reggie Bush have more talent/potential than Mario Williams? Yes. Would he have helped the Texans as much as Williams? No.

    I respectfully disagree- I think a runner as special Bush can run in ANY style and more importantly, he can create his own holes. Also he is a very good WR.

    Actually, the Denver running system would've seriously hurt Reggie Bush's playing style. The Denver system uses one-cut backs, and the day Bush becomes a one-cut back is the day pigs are flying through the frozen wasteland known as hell.

    Surprise, surprise!!! Walls didn't play.

    Griffin didn't do much but he did have one good run. He already had a gain for about 6 or 7 yards. A Houston defender slammed into him for what I thought for sure would be a tackle. Instead, Griffin kept his balance and ran to the right for another 5 or 6 yards.

    I agree--Williams got dominated. When a D-lineman is drafted that high he is supposed to have an IMMEDIATE impact,it is not like QB where one has to learn a lot of plays, etc. DE's simply have to line up and beat their man. He was OWNED by Kyle Turley last night. That Texans O-line blew the "thiefs" right off the line of scrimmage last night--If Denver stays injury free throughout the preseason on the o-line, we are going to beat them like we did last year in week 2. Great job Kubes.........
    The Texans starting O-line didn't blow our starting defensive line off the ball. Plus, Tamba Hali is our starting left defensive end and he didn't even play in the game.

    I guess I could say this:

    Did you see Kevin Jones run over the Denver defense? If KC stays injury free Larry Johnson is going to have 200+ yards each game.

    It's the freaking preseason. Denver didn't look so hot themselves. I expect both KC and Denver to be better than there first preseason showing would suggest.
