I completely agree and therefore I don't believe that Ragone has the current trade value. However, Feeley's production came with the Philadelphia Eagles. Ragone's only opportunity came with the Texans, minus Domanick Davis (1 game) and most of the offensive and defensive lines playing different positions, or out. We will never know how well Ragone would have done with the Eagles. In the future, Ragone may prove to be a productive NFL QB.

It is like comparing Carr's first year playing to Carson Palmer's. Carr had to play every game, on an expansion team ... no line, no running, etc. Palmer got to sit for a year and then inherited a team that was 8-8 the previous year. Different situations.
