The Houston Texans, by way of a New Year’s Day loss to the San Francisco 49ers, can earn the overall number one pick in the upcoming NFL draft. Many “experts” expect the Texans to select Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.

Others wonder if this is best route for the victory challenged Texans. Another option might be to trade away their number one pick and get two or three draft choices.

Only time will tell what will happen, and by late evening on New Year’s Day, all with know if the Texans get the top pick.

One thing is guaranteed. There will be major changes in Houston for next season, and those changes may include coaches, players, and front office staff.

If Reggie Bush does become a Texans, then so be it. In any case, they need to find the right combination of talent, coaching and management to make this program work.

After all, professional sports is about winning, and the Texans found little success at that in their brief history.

Hopefully, the Texans getting Reggie Bush will help them win more than a couple of games. This season has been a dissapointment and at this point anything that could possible dig them out of this hole looks good to me.

It is truly disappointing (though not surprising) that the Texans season ended the way that it did. Multiple changes must be made if the team ever hopes to be a serious contender. Whether they indeed won the "Reggie Bowl" by losing AGAIN, what is done with that high draft pick will be a majoe topic of discussion until draft day.
