The problem for the Texans is that they will have to show their hand early. They have until February 15th to pick up Carr’s option.

It hard to see how the Texans could take a QB, if Carr is signed and still making several million a season.
I think if Casserly was dismissed along with Capers, the Texans would've likely punted Carr. But now that he's still in power, I don't see how they'll let Carr walk away.
I do not think Carr was the problem last year; the OL was and the inability of the OC to provide adequate pass protection, but that is another discussion. I think the texans will draft Bush or trade down with some other team and address other needs; there is not one position that the Texans do not need help in offensively.

On his weekly radio show Casserly reiterated that Carr will recieve his bonus which will be done sometime in February. Like, don't like David Carr is likely to be the QB for the Houston Texans for at least the next couple of years.

Here's a thought I haven't seen anywhere:Whomever the Texans hire for their new head coach will "tell us" if they are drafting Reggie Bush.If it is someone innovative (like Norm Chow, who I know is with Tennessee), that would lead me to believe the choice will be to keep the pick and take Bush.If it is an old-school guy who brings in a traditionalist OC, I would say you'd have to believe they would not go with Bush.

:no: Whoever comes in to coach is going to have little, if any, say in who the Texans select. Most head coaches have very little impact on that front, and someone under Charlie Casserly certainly would fit that bill.

I sort of did around post 78 or so in this thread, but not quite as directly as you just did. There have been rumors that one of the questions that they have specifically been asking concerns how a coordinator would use Reggie Bush.

:yes: Exactly...it's far more likely that Casserly, McNair and Reeves are seeking a candidate who WOULD know how to use Bush effectively, not the other way around.

I'm not saying the new coach would have ANY say in who they pick but that it would not make sense to bring in someone who isn't innovative to utilize Bush properly.

Never know if it is BS with this guy, but Casserly said on his morning program that the head coach would have to sign off on the whoever the first pick is. Watching Houston closely it is apparent that Casserly takes imput from the coaching staff. The amount of influence has been at question, but Capers and his staff had a pretty nice portion of the ear of Casserly. I do know one thing in both Washington and Houston, Casserly has no problem throwing the staff under the bus about their influence on his draft decisions.
 
Just as many of us surmised, the Texans are not even considering Vince Young. Per ESPN, Texans officials are giving Carr his bonus, and taking Bush #1.Those of you captivated by Young's Rose Bowl performance are free to exit the hype train now. Thanks for riding.

 
The Houston Texans will select USC running back Reggie Bush with the No. 1 pick in this April's NFL draft, pending the formality of Bush announcing that he is turning pro, team and league sources told Chris Mortensen. Reggie BushBushAlmost nothing will change that course, the sources say, even after the Texans received word Friday from an intermediary representing Texas quarterback Vince Young that the Houston native is leaning strongly to also going pro.The Texans will pick up an $8 million option on quarterback David Carr, who was the expansion team's first draft pick four years ago. Texans owner Bob McNair made the decision after getting extensive evaluations from various sources that strongly endorsed Carr, including a favorable report from Dan Reeves, the former longtime NFL coach hired last month as a consultant.USC's Matt Leinart, who could have been the first pick a year ago had he turned pro after his junior season, still remains the consensus top quarterback in the NFL draft, even if Young comes out. For Leinart, he is likely to be the choice of the New Orleans Saints at No. 2 with Young projected to the Tennessee Titans at No. 3.Young would be mentored by Titans quarterback Steve McNair, who is hoping to sign a new contract with the club for the 2006 season.Leinart also would be desirable to Tennessee, where his former USC offensive coordinator Norm Chow is now calling plays for the Titans.

I'm calling BS on the ESPN report. Houston gains nothing by laying all their cards on the table in January. Not to mention they can't even "discuss" Bush until he declares.As far as trading the pick goes, the fans here will kill Casserly if he comes out of this draft without Bush or Young (assuming Young declares).
