Default Texans and Tim Couch

Would it be worth it to try to make a deal with Tim Couch. I am not sure how reasonable it would be but the Texans could use a decent back-up QB (I'm not too fond of Tony Banks),

I don't think Tim Couch is a decent backup QB, and apparently GB didn't think so either. I'd take Tony Banks over Couch anytime.

Couch is pretty worthless. He has some type of chronic arm weakness problem. I don't like Banks much either, but he is better than couch.

I caught a couple of the Packers games on NFL Network. Ragone and Banks are both better options than Couch.

I'm not a Couch hater. I'm not a fan either but I don't think he's absolutely "done". I do think that his career is one of those long term resurrection jobs that you don't see happen very often. Mostly I think that's because of his head. How screwed up do you think he is upstairs and how long do you think he'd have to sit at 3rd before you got that mess straightened out?

That's the problem. In the old days he'd be the kind of reclamaition project that Al Davis might pick up (IF he had a stronger arm so this is kind of hypothetical really) and let sit for a couple of years at the 3 and then the 2. Or he'd go up to Canada (That may very well happen) and get his head back together to earn himself another shot.

He'll get a call from someone, somewhere. QB is so thin around the league that he'll be riding pine for somebody this year. He won't be getting any better doing it though in most of the places that will call.

I wonder if Palmer could help him? Sign him to the practice squad & let Palmer work with him for a year or two. Maybe, Casserly can turn him into an extra draft pick or two.

Casserly confirmed that on the radio this morning. If healthy, he could be a backup (or better), but he's not healthy.
