Honestly.. I can see why they didnt give BJ Symons more time on the Galaxy team. Sad thing is, you mean Parsons who we released was worse... Does not bod well for him.

I'm not confused at all! They both stunk! If Carr goes down this year, and Banks leaves, we are in a world of HURT!! BUT, being the eternal optimist that I TRY to be!! MAYBE Ragone will improve. He's got to get the European league out of his system. Time will tell.

I agree, we cant afford to get rid of Banks he is our only other qb with any experience and the only other qb that can get anything done out there. Ragone and Symons were horrible. Yea Ragone had a good drive late but he looked like a high school qb in all his other drives. I say we just let the Bears be miserable this year and not trade with them.

Ragone seems to be a slow starter and a guy who is not a good practice player. I am not as down on him as some of you guys, but there are times where he makes us all cringe. As he plays deeper into games he seems to get a rhythm and he looks more comfy later than sooner in games. I am not sure Symons has the arm to play in the NFL.

Why would we trade one of our QBs' to the Bears so we can just be in their position if Carr gets hurt?

For what it's worth...

Didn't Banks lead us to a win over Carolina?

Hasn't he shown he's a solid backup?

And, don't forget, he broke his hand last year...

Give the poor guy some time to work out the kinks...

I really want to keep Banks. He's been really good for us, and I think we're pretty lucky to have him as a #2 QB. I think he could easily start on some teams like Chicago and Washington, and he could easily compete for starting jobs at various other places.

I couldn't agree more. Banks is our only back up that has proven he can win in the NFL. Maybe ya'll dont remember the game in Jacksonville when Ragone started. If the line doesnt start pass protecting this year "knock on wood" we could go through QB's like paper plates. Good thing Carr can scramble.

I think he broke his hand 2 years ago, when we played Atlanta. I remember because I was trying to watch some of it in the Atlanta airport after visiting relatives for Thanksgiving, and when he had to go out I was sure the **** was about to hit the fan while I was in enemy territory. We had to leave though for the flight home and I later learned they won that game.

They also won the game against Tennesse while I was between airports (changing flights in Houston to continue on to Austin so I saw a few minutes) and that was the big comeback that I was feeling pretty down about. The pathetic thing was that I planned to watch the end of it in Austin's airport but they were showing Eagles-Giants crap instead. Got the call from my dad while I was driving back to San Marcos.

Guess I will ask this here while I'm ranting on...anyone know if they show the preseason games in the San Marcos area?

the bears really have nothing we could really use here that would pique our interest in trading banks. not to mention how would he compete for the starting job in chicago race grossman down a hill in a wheelchair? the bears just want a guy that doesnt make too many mistakes to hand the ball off to benson, and occasionally throw a high ball to mushin.

I'm pretty sure the Bears picked up veteran QB Jeff Blake. Don't think they'd have much interest in Banks.

Sandy, with all due respect, I don't think your looking at the big picture.

Dave Ragone had a very good game by all standards. He was 5-8 for 56 yds. and a TD, he had a 62.5 completion % and a 122.9 rating. He did this with a second, third and lower string mix. I would like to see what he can do with the starters. That been said, I would not bet the house on him just yet. He also did this against second and third string mix.

Tony is a solid backup and one preseason game is not the way to judge anyone but I feel we have a good situation here with our backups.

Chicago has a hot rookie QB in Ortman who will likely be the starter by game 6 if not sooner. Blake & company will just keep the seat warm until he is ready and try not to lose to many games. They have a stout defense and if they keep the mistakes down, they will do all right. Probably an 8-8 team.

Yeah because Volek is looking to leave TEN to come back up a younger QB.

Well, with Symons out, we can't afford to trade any QB's now, We only have three to begin with.

Default Well as of a few hours ago

Houston is back up to 5 QB's. Mr Parsons was called back to the team. I imagine he will get some playing time this weekend against the Raiders. He lit them up in preseason a couple years ago when he was with the Cards.

No need to trade Banks, our offensive line is going to put Carr in the garage for a few games and we will NEED Banks.
