Texans are going to sign Jeff Garcia as their third QB. They want 2 veterans behind rookie T.J. Yates. Jake Delhomme signed last week.

That stinks for Clemens. He really does seem like a good guy. Oh well, he's made more money than I'll see in a lifetime. Can't feel too bad for him.

why didnt they sign him in the first place and waste money on Kellen

im not the coaches but at this point i would think Kellen is a much better QB then Garcia .... hmm but hey im not the coaches who watch him 24/7

The Garcia fans get their pick! Haha

Not a bad idea I guess. Clemens was never going to see the field barring we our 3rd and 4th QB go down for the season. I like the idea of having these two veterans helping Yates. This is obviously TJ's job and I'm glad they're giving him any resource they can to help him grow.

I like this signing a lot more than the Delhomme signing. Garcia was one of the elite QBs in the league a few years ago and I think he can impart more useful knowledge to Yates than Delhomme can. I also feel better having him as the backup instead of Delhomme.

12-06-2011, 03:26 PM
Does anyone know if Delhomme and Garcia are even mentor type players?

They could both be 'holes that only care about themselves.

Now that doesn't sound like the type of player the Texans usually sign but something in the back of my mind thinks Garcia has stated previously he only wants to be in a situation where he could be the man..... I might be misremembering.

You would expect however Garcia to learn a system faster than Clemens just based on experience.

Could this possibly be about having a mobile QB to practice against. Seems like now we got someone who will tuck it and run to practice against.

This was actually my only concern regarding Garcia, but I guess if he's running the scout team, it's not as big a deal.

Everything I've heard regarding DelHomme is that he's a great person to be put in the mentor/big brother role. I think that's at least part of the reason he was chosen over Garcia last week.

The Texans have waived Kellen Clemens and signed Jeff Garcia at QB.

With all that experience competing at the backup spot, it should come as no surprise if one of these two veterans somehow manages to find his way into the starting line up by playoff time.

Texans to sign Garcia to replace Clemens (http://blog.chron.com/ultimatetexans/2011/12/texans-to-sign-garcia-to-replace-clemens/)

The Texans are going to sign quarterback Jeff Garcia to replace quarterback Kellen Clemens, who was placed on waivers today.

Garcia, who played for quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp at San Francisco, worked out for the Texans in each of the last two weeks. They wanted two veterans to play behind rookie T.J. Yates. Jake Delhomme was signed last week and was the No. 2 quarterback for Sunday’s 17-10 victory over Atlanta.

The Texans placed punter Brett Hartmann on injured reserve. He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the Falcons game. The team worked out some punters. Matt Turk, who punted for the Texans from 2007-2010 is a candidate, according to coach Gary Kubiak.

GP
12-06-2011, 04:22 PM
LOL.

I guess Garcia and his agent reduced their asking price. :kitten:

Glad to see this being done. Was verrrrrry shaky on the idea of Clemens being on the roster at all, and now we have two veteran guys to pool from if Yates gets injured.

On the topic of trying out punters, Matt Turk IS a candidate you say? It's a done deal. Gary wants familiarity any way he can get it (see: David Anderson). The Turk is gonna' be back, guys. Bank on it.

Seems obvious they're going to sign Garcia this time around.

Nope! They sign Delhomme.

Then they waive Clemens and sign Garcia.

Maybe GP is right and Garcia was wanting too much money.

Or.....

Oh hell, what does it matter.

Yup... Texans just signed Turk. Man, after seeing Hartmann punt, we finally got to see a real punter in a Texans uniform. I guess we were getting too spoiled.

Kubiak is loyal, but this season, he's shown he's not afraid to let them go if they don't perform. DA was eventually dropped.

By the way, I'm not pulling a "Bob is cheap" or a "Kubiak wants his buddies back with him!" stunt.

I'm saying that the PUNTER is not as important as QB, and if Gary can sign a known commodity to the position of punter...then it's a quick and easy choice he can make, allowing him to go and fry bigger fish that need his attention.

At this stage, he needs all the peace of mind he can be given. This Sunday is playoffs. We can get to the playoffs THIS SUNDAY.

During most of the game you would see Delhomme right next to Kubiak and everytime Yates came over there was Delhomme which looked like he was inputting on the conversation. I liked what I saw from Delhomme and what he seemed to be supporting.

Nobody's job is safe! LOL.

I am glad we got rid of Clemens. No harm meant toward the guy, I'm sure he was hoping to stick around and such....I just wanted veterans at QB, at this stage of the year. Garcia is mobile. He's seen a lot of football.

You never know what a guy can do if he's got THIS kind of offense and THIS kind of defense at his disposal. A lot of times, the guys like Delhomme and Garcia were playing for teams who had nothing for them to work with.

I'm thinking they signed Clemens to run the practice team, Leinart was the starter, TJ was going to be the #2, & Garcia was a little over qualified.

They signed Delhomme to be the #2, leaving Clemens on the scout team. Maybe Clemens didn't like this & started making noise & we did the ole addition by subtraction thing.

It's also likely they realized we aren't a farm club for QBs, & decided if Clemens wasn't ever going to be a possibility to step in, might as well cut him now.
