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, 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.

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.

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....

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.

Don't forget about Moron Greenwood. He's been a Pro-bowl LB if you ask me.....

Gee.. I wonder where is all the Sage nut-huggers? Did they just disappeared or something?

It's like after the Colts game, they became endangered species, and now they're completely extinct after the Ravens game. I hate to say "we told you so" but... well.. we did. Sage sucks.

Default Rosenfels ready for second chance at Colts

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.
