Default Re: So .... Who's your QB in 2014 ?! - [edit] Mallett?

our qbs suck so bad there are many teams' 3rd and 4th qb that would be an upgrade for us. I hope we sign someone Saturday.

Connor Shaw is near the top of my list.

Probably about the same as the chances we pick him up if he's released.

I doubt many people outside the Patriots watched Cassel in the preseason & thought he could lead them to an 11-5 season.

Then he went to KC with Charlie Weisz went 10-6 & had people saying, "Maybe Bowe isn't a bust."

I'm not a big Fitzpatrick fan, or a little Fitzpatrick fan but I still think there's enough talent on this team that he won't slow us down too much.

That would be hilarious.. I already hear the circus clown music playing when Texans QB's trot onto the field. Might as well make it a foursome eh?

It's not just about the player. It's also about time to learn the system. This is why Keenum and Savage are better than others with similar or even slightly better skill level without knowledge of the system.

St. Louis needs a veteran backup that knows their system or can pick it up quickly, not a trainee. Is Mallett worth a late rounder under THESE circumstances? Maybe. But maybe not. It is also possible that knowing Belecheats system isn't quite the same as knowing OBs system. There seems to be almost universal acceptance that OB is just Belecheat light. Again, maybe not.

Well, if everything else would collapse, at least we'd have some excitement and a good draft pick...

I'd get on the phone with Oak and see if we could get McGloin for a 6-7th. I'd much rather go with him over Fitz. He knows the offense already. For some reason he reminds me of Rich Gannon, though he doesn't run as much

I just think if something like this were to happen, it would have happened back in training camp. Not 1 week from the opener. Sadly we are rolling with Fitz, Case and Tom. People need to get over it and hope for the best at this point.

Why? Because he's better than Fitz?

We don't need to be looking for QBs that are better than Fitzpatrick, we need to be looking for our franchise QB. Fitz is who he is & he is where he is. I'm not interested in taking baby steps, or threading water... the next QB we get should be a bonafide blue chip.

While I agree we need to be searching for our long term answer, thats not likely to happen until next off season. I also follow the Raiders and theres something about McGloin. Worse case scenario we'd have a long term back up with him. Best case, he and savage both continue to develop to the point where one is tradable for a good draft pick.

My hope is that with Carr showing strong signs of progressing, they would be comfortable rolling with Scahub and Carr making McGloin expendable. A late round pick might be enough to convince them to let him go

If the Raiders were comfortable trading McGloin for that, why wouldn't the Texans have just traded Schaub for him? I think they like McGloin as a long term backup and are keeping him.

If the Texans are considering trading for a QB, they should call the Niners about Josh Johnson.

And if I were the Niners I'd hang up on you.
Now if you wanted to talk to us (the Niners) about a trade for Gabbert, I might listen.

Good point, not sure how's Schuab's contract would have effected that decision, maybe it was better for us to cut him? Maybe they thought the guys we have would have been good enough (which still may prove to be the case though Im not holding my breath lol)

Unfortunately I think this will linger through the season.

Ah and here is the real perfect storm...Schaub plays well but the Raiders come out and say it was only temporary to ready Carr they want to trade Schaub now that he is his old self ... and the Texans are rumored to be interested...






...with VY to come in as backup.

Even VY goes at the MB meltdown.
