Default Sage wants a chance to be a starter.

Quote:
Sage Rosenfels' bio on the Houston Texans' Web site describes him as a "valuable backup quarterback with the ability to start in the NFL."

Those are nice words, but the former Iowa State quarterback from Maquoketa would like to see them read "valuable starter."

"I understand Matt's the starter," Rosenfels said last week in a telephone interview. "But I feel I'm in my prime."
Quote:
Then it's back to living the life of an NFL player, back to practice, back to being a backup.

"Last year made me want to play more and more," he said. "Now, I feel, I'm closer than I've ever been."

All he wants is a chance.

Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

As a QB on your team, you want him to have that kind of fire/desire. Being happy as a backup would be sad.

But..Sage has had opps and he ended up here. He won't be a distraction. We all wanna win.

Yeah, the only guy ever I can think of that talked about how he was looking forward to being a backup is... well, I think you know who that is.

Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

I think Sage would make for a serviceable starter. He did very well for us last year and Im glad he is still here. I dont feel we are in any way obligated to trade him so that he can be a starting QB. He signed the contract, he is ours. If (god forbid) Matt gets injured or gets in a terrible slump, Sage can step in and lead the offense with confidence. Otherwise he will be a backup. Sorry Sage, love you buddy but thats the way it is.

I'm sorry, but Sage is the better quarterback. Sage also tastes good on everything, including spicy foods.

Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

Nice find. The first time I ever considered Sage as a potential starter was when he threw for three TDs in place of a benched Carr (2006 game at Tennessee). And had it not been for Pac Man making it rain on Sage's parade, we would have been sitting at a managable 3-4 instead of a pitiful 2-5.

It makes you wonder what would have been if we would have kept Carr on the bench for the rest of the season.

I'm shocked, shocked...that Sage isn't satisfied at being our number two for perpetuity.

Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

Sage is the perfect fit as a backup QB. He wants to start, knows he has the ability to start, prepares to start, but won't be a poison in the locker room if he doesn't start. When he has the chance to play, his teammates trust him and the team won't fall apart when he's in there.

If the situation were reversed, Schaub would be the same way.

You have to like having a team full of competitors who still put the team first. Just like Salaam being upset that Duane Brown was working with the first team all through OTA's. Salaam felt it should have been him, but he still helped Brown learn the position even though it ultimately means that Brown takes his job.

Default Re: Sage want a chance to be a starter.

I've been pegged as a Sage apologist, and I haven't posted on this in probably two or three months.

Regardless of what anyone thinks about WHICH guy is better/best...I think you have to be honest with yourself and at least prepare yourself for the big hit that Schaub is probably going to take (at some point), and then what do you think is going to happen?

Sage is going to run the offense. And technically, he'll probably start a game or two in Matt's absence. But with the shoulder injury Matt had...and the types of defenses we face in Indy-Jax-Tenn (twice for each team), not to mention the Steelers and the Ravens, I just think Sage is going to find himself on the field at some point.

So there's no need for him to get anxious about "if" he'll be starter; it's more of a "when" situation. Yet I bet he'd like to go into a season with the tag of being named the starter (which is proably what he's referrig to). I have ZERO faith that Schaub can last the season. It's not a deal of me being a hater. It's a deal of probabilities. And, to the credit of a lot of posters here: Sage HAS had his chances and he's a hit or miss guy. I won't argue it.

wth? Who would? If they knew they had the ability to be a capable starter in the league, and shown it the past season, of course they wouldn't be satisfy going back to being #2 the next season. Not to mention there's teams out there that wanted him and is in need of a starting QB. Like the article said, he feels like he's entering his prime and he still stuck as #2 QB to his team. I don't know about youl guys but I feel bad for him, but then again its only for one more season.

Have you tried Schaub on anything? If not, how can you compare? If so, we really don't want to know the details.

TTP I think you need to use this.....

I'm glad he has the competitive fire and I'm glad this wasn't in the light of "I want to start, trade me now".

Sage can run this offense well, I think he proved this, but I think he makes too many mistakes and that Schaub's ceiling is higher.

Nope those kind of facts are glossed over.

I'm not surprised one bit he wants and feels like he should be a starter. He has to lament his chances in D.C. and Miami. He could very well be the next Rich Gannon but I see more the next A.J. Feeley.

http://www.nfl.com/players/a.j.feele...e?id=FEE447935
http://www.nfl.com/players/sagerosen...e?id=ROS396938

I think he'd do well to enjoy another year under Kubiak and hopefully push his game to where he can make more then a game manager type QB.

S. Rosenfels 22/35 290 4 3

Seems to me if he hadn't thrown ain INT per quarter for the first 3 1/2 quarters, we wouldn't have needed amazing 1/8th of a game from him. Oh but we'll always remember it as the comeback that almost was. I think I remember him having a fumble or two as well.
