Something still tells keeps telling me that the Texans may feel that his value goes up as time goes on. And that with the NFL QB positions now pretty well dried up and someone doesn't work out or someone gets injured, a Quinn deal can be had.

A team with the need for a back up is just as likely to take Quinn as Sage, Sure they want sage but they can't have him, Take Quinn. We have done this with other QB's late in the draft. Sage is a solid Texan, Quinn is a learner, But I see a trading partner leaning for a QB will be more inticed to take a guy who was not as schooled in our system and able to learn thier system quicker. Sage is A solid Texan and will stay and ride the train to the playoffs baby.

Unless they run a similar WCO as the Texans. As the Vikings & Packers do.

Joe if this was the case the Vikings would have tried to sign Gray before offering us a third for Sage while Gray was still a FA.

In considering options, teams can make the wrong decisions (haven't we made some of those in the past?) and bypass choices just to find out later that when that choice is no longer available, the choice may have been the best option..........and now there seems to be no viable options for them. There comes to mind the saying "When you snooze, you lose."

In meantime Sage can come in run the offense as your starter, on the cheap, if trading two 2nd rd. picks worked to address the QB situation for the Texans why not the Falcons? I feel this is a safer more cost effective route than using the 3rd overall pick on Matt Ryan.
agreed. No less of a bust factor on Flacco than there is on Ryan. I just can't see arthur Blank running to the poduim to pony up another thirty million just after he ate forty million on Vick. There is fine line between being brave and being...well stupid. Thank you sir may I please have another ? Gruden has hoarded all of the second teired QBs...going to be funny if the rest of the league makes him carry them into august.

If Minnie offer up the threes...both of them, for Sage do the deal.

Atlanta and KC both need to find a starter. Sorry, I'm not sold on Brodie Croyle.

Carolina, Minnesota, and Green Bay all need a reliable back up QB.

Come to think of it who does Denver have as Cutler's backup? Patrick Ramsey? They might be shopping to upgrade the back-up QB spot too.
