OK, I know it's impossible, just because of numbers, but you want to talk about accountability? The QBs on this team need to be fired (Sage moreso at this point).

He's shown why he's a back-up. No need to cut him. We need to protect Schaub and see what he can do for an entire season.

I haven't seen anything from this offensive line to show that they are capable of protecting Schaub, especially since they went to a pure ZBS.

The only QB that they can protect is one that can run for his life.

Really? Cause the number of sacks allowed has dropped significantly since installing the zbs.

Sacks have dropped but the pressures and hits havn't. We have QB's now that can get rid of the ball. Schaub is getting killed and the OL hasn't shown an ounce of ability in protecting him. But yea... at least the QB's can throw the ball away.

At least if your definition of "throwing it away" includes throwing it to defenders...

Mr. White

They dropped as soon as we got rid of our self-sacking QB 2 years ago.

They've gotten worse since Gibbs came along and they've ran pure ZBS. We were running a hybrid scheme with Sherman.

I can't believe that I actually miss that guy nowadays.

You can win with either of these two QBs. However, they have to be kept clean. So Far we can't do that yet. The message I'm reading...Meyers and Briseil are the best we got and it isn't going to change the rest of the season. The things we were told out of camp....these two guys are ok....the LBs are serviceable...Weaver is serviceable...are false. On the positive side we're leading the Tim Tebow sweeps. Lucky us.

We also need to start going after guys who cheap shot our QB. Its chicken shit that our line did nothing to Allen in response to what happened.

Hey, as long as we can be nuts, why don't we get Vince Young? He's a little nutty.

And we don't even have to start him. Heck, we can put him up in the coaches booth upstairs.

Just through his "It" he will make our defense better. And goodness knows we need them to get better.

I'll join the start OD club.

I really dread watching the Rosencopter play over and over again during the game this week. I propose everyone has to take a shot or chug a beer each time they replay that play or reference it during the telecast on Sunday.

Thorn, ya with me. I know I can count on you.

I will probably have to work this Sunday since I'm on call this week. I'm thinking it might be a blessing in disguise missing this game. LOL

He's got a gun.

He's not that old. Well, relatively speaking....

Instead of throwing at defenders he might be able to throw through them.

Probably could be had for the veteran minimum.

Sign him up and draft a QB.

If you choose that route, this is what you will look like by the next decade..........and you'll also have lots of time to remove the high heels and purse before you're found out.:mcnugget:

The Jeff George thing is funny to think about, but I have to ask, seriously - can he be worse than Craig Nall? I mean, yeah, he could, but at that point it no longer matters.

I'm on the Start Owen Daniels bandwagon :)

If I had to choose between Craig Nall or Jeff George I'm going to pick Jeff George.

If I had to pick between Sage Rosenfels or Jeff George.... I'm still going to pick Jeff George. At least we would have somewhat of an unknown.

We'd suspect we were in trouble instead of just knowing it.

I believe this is a 7 year old piece (http://espn.go.com/chrismortensen/s/2001/0926/1255617.html), but it accurately illustrates how most NFL execs and coaches look at Jeff George. There has been talk of ADHD sprinkled with the lack of introspect and the grandiosity of bipolar. Everytime he has been given a repeat chance (against all odds and common sense), he has managed to muck up the picture..................we don't need any more help mucking up this picture.:foottap:

Tony Banks became the starter and Sage Rosenfels rode the pine that year over Jeff George who was cut all together. This would lead me to believe that Tony Banks would be a better option over Jeff George. And we're vying to have Sage Rosenfels replaced. I don't know... is Jeff George really an option that we'd like to pursue? I just don't know. I do know that I'm almost willing to try anything but Jeff? That might be scraping the floor of the cellar a little too hard for me.

Sooooo I'm going to agree with you on not having him mucking up the picture.

I want gone as soon as possible but does anyone think it might be a reason Jeff George has been out of the league a few years. The guy has always been a head case but with a million dollar arm. I guess most personel people just don't want to deal with the headache that he is.

CloakNNNdagger
11-12-2008, 07:50 PM
Ryan Leaf had great arm strength. Besides the head case problems, Jeff George was a poster child for exchanging arm strength for predictability of where the ball was going to go. George threw to the DBs..........only with greater force.

Guess I should have used the sarcasm smilie.... :thinking:

Guys, really, I was just joking about the whole "Jeff George" thing. George is a pretty sad story, really. Lots of physical tools but never could bring it all together. Given our current harsh dose of reality at 3-6 I kinda thought that trying to dust off the original laser rocket armed Colts QB (especially given that we're playing Indy this weekend) would be fun.

And it was fun, for me anyway. At least while I'm stuck at work wasting bandwidth.


*but hey, I can find some satisfaction in that I honestly had y'all talking about the merits (or lack thereof) of bringing a 40 year old Jeff George in.

Texans Quarterback Sage Rosenfels insists he's tossed out the painful memories from his last start against Indianapolis.

That foolish attempt to go airborne, only to see Gary Brackett scoop up his fumble and score? Forgotten.

The thought of Robert Mathis stripping him for another fumble? Gone.

And the interception that ended Houston's last-gasp chance? History.

For Rosenfels, those infamous final five minutes from Oct. 5 may be interminably replayed forever. It doesn't mean anything to the Texans.

"That game is over, it was over a long time ago," Rosenfels said. "I've put that out of my mind."

Maybe not entirely.

While the Texans (3-6) recovered quickly after the October debacle, Rosenfels finds himself back in the starring role for this week's sequel.

The painful memories were intercepted and returned for a TD to put the Texans in a 7-0 hole going into this weekend's game against the Colts.
