I've heard of him, but don't know much about him. Seems kind of odd that on the day training camp opens, all the sudden they realize they have only two vets. It's kind of like they said Doh! We only have two vets. Go pick up the phone Rick. What, they didn't know this last week?

WOW!!!

Yeah I saw this guy play... the 49ers were so bad the whole place would start cheering for him! Cody Cody Cody!

They actually meant it too... mostly.

This Blog Shot sums it up for what I think most of San Fran thinks of the Cowboy
http://blogs.mercurynews.com/bay_are...der_cody_.html

Commander Cody And The Lost Planet 49ers

You know, I am not a huge fan of Prince Charles and Camilla. The whole stupid royalty thing escapes me. According to family lore, my ancestors fought against the British in the Revolutionary War. Once when I was covering the Wimbledon tennis championships, I purposely sat down when some Duke of something-or-other entered the stadium and everyone else stood up. The only royals I would ever show up to watch are the Kansas City Royals.

However.

I must admit that on Sunday, I was very impressed with Prince Charles and his Duchess. They must be smarter than they look. They were visiting the Bay Area and wisely chose not to attend the 49er game.
---

He was not all that popular in Huskie land either or I should say split popularity. To be fair not much of it was really his fault. Pickett was recruited by Rick Neuheisel ( Aikman's buddy ) and kind of got linked up with him and some of the problems that were going on at that time ( which had nothing to do with Pickett as far as I know ).

guess I am going to have to change my avatar up now too...

From the link:

Quote:
Kubiak wanted another veteran quarterback to join David Carr and Sage Rosenfels. The first-year head coach said if Carr or Rosenfels were injured, he didn't want to be left with only one veteran on the roster.
Should have come up with a better spin than veteran. Hard to see how this 3rd year QB with 2 starts and worse stats is more of a veteran than 4th year QB with 2 starts Ragone. Just say you like him better and haven't seen the progress from the other youngsters.

Picket impressed me....for 1 half of football. He had all the talent but just could't put it all together to impress anyone. He's a career 3rd stringer. I'm sure his agent probably called some of his friends up for a connection with a team...and looky here, it's the Texans. Training Camper fodder.

Takes up some of the arm strain during camp. Likely not on the final roster.

If we wanted another veteran, couldn't we just have kept Tony Banks? He's probably a better QB than this guy. Banks and Rosenfels could have battled for 2nd string QB spot.

Pretty brutal to get cut/whatever from a team who's starter throws 1 TD for every 11 INT's.

If that's the case, he'll be the 2nd QB in Texans history to complete a pass to himself. Dave Ragone did it a few years ago.

Wow, so now just being in the NFL for three years makes you a veteran. What does that make Brett Favre? God?
