My feeling on this is with Orlovsky as the backup, we're very likely screwed in terms of playoff hopes if Schaub goes down. However, if Sage were still here, and Schaub went down, my feeling would then be that we would very likely be screwed in terms of playoff hopes.

If you're an offensive oriented team that's a playoff "hopeful" as opposed to a playoff "probable", and you're #1 QB goes down for any appreciable length of time, most likely you're screwed. The exception to this would be if the coaches (for whatever reason) started the wrong QB (see New England when Bledsoe got injured and the world was introduced to a guy by the name of Brady). I know Sage had his supporters, but I feel strongly that Schaub gives us a better chance to win than Sage would have, and almost everyone feels strongly that he gives us a better chance than Orlovsky.

The question is will the defense "Not suck" enough to give any QB a chance to lead this team to the playoffs. Tune in next Monday for your next clue to the answer to that question.

Yeah, but the good news is that he'll likely leave the football stuck in the crack when he does it.

I hate to admit it, but Sage is a better QB than Dan O at this time. Dan O might have a better future, but we are talking about 2009. Which backup gives us the best chance to win in 2009. I think that answer is plainly Sage. He has won games for us in the past, whereas Dan won ....oh wait he didn't win diddly squat in Detroit. I know he had a bad team around him, but he couldn't manage to lead his team to even one measely victory?

That's pretty obvious really. Sage has been in the league for awhile (What 8, 9 years?) and Dan has been on the Lions (Which is more like being in NFL Europe). Trading Sage for any kind of value is what I consider a good thing since he was not going to re-sign here to be a backup when his contract was up.

As far as "Sage wins games" I submit this:



I don't think Dan O is going to try to "win" a game for us so that he can attempt to grab a starter spot.

I feel for Sage personally. Being from Iowa, I think he really wanted to go home and play near his family and friends. This was a great opportunity for him. I'm pulling for him in every game that matters and doesn't involve us.

I'm ok with letting Sage go, though I'm not sold on Orlovsky yet. I think Sage had reached his ceiling here and needed to move on.

It would be nice if people would move on from the Rosencoptor play. It was last season and that's over with. The guy was a damn good back up here. Anyone denying that really doesn't have a clue. Back up QB's are back ups for a reason and like one guy pointed out in here if a back up is starter material most likely he won't be with your team that long. The Texans wouldn't have traded Sage at all, if he didn't have any value. As a matter of fact he played well enough for a team to trade a 4th rounder for him which is pretty good for any back up, so he obviously didn't play as bad as people like to claim. The guy was a really nice player to have as a back up QB and he'll be missed in that role because he could always be counted on to play pretty well in limited time. It was when he had to start for several games he became more exposed as what he was which was a back up. The guy played as hard as he could over here though, and he shouldn't be getting trashed by anyone.
