Also, the guy was the best QB ever in Conference USA. He is one of the best quarterbacks ever at Louisville, maybe only after a guy named Johnny Unitas? So cut the guy some slack, becuase he is very good, but he was a rookie. And to be honest, even though he didnt show any superstar qualities, he didnt look any worse than Eli Manning does. And Carr has been on teh decline too.
Man don't get me wrong here. I don't have any sort of problem with Dave Ragone as a person or as a player. He really wasn't ready to play when it was handed to him and everyone knows that. I mean, your'e down to QB #3 so obviously things are getting desperate.
He could in time make somebody a very good quarterback. I am critical not of him as a person or player but of the Texans for picking him when they did in spite of needing help at many other positions. I just don't think he was the move the Texans should have made. Not knocking what he could become or anything like that, I just don't think he really belongs here.
