Default Trade Sage or Matt?

With the possibility of signing Quinn Gray and all the talk about trading Sage, I have an interesting question to ask:

Do you think Matt's trade value today is as high as what we gave for him?

Would you still make that trade today?

What other teams in the NFL would Matt start for today?

Gray "appears" to have really good ability and decision making skills. I don't see him coming here to be a #3 QB and he may be a better long term QB prospect than either Matt or Sage. Personally, if we can get anything more for Matt than we can for Sage, I would trade Matt over Sage. I just don't see where Matt is head and shoulders better than Sage and he is apparently less durable. If he has more trade value and we sign Gray, I say trade 'em.

What say you?

Are you looking strictly at production when comparing Matt and Sage ?

If Sage was such a beast he should have clearly out shown Matt in the time he was afforded. IMO he didn't.

Sage has been with the team longer, has played in the system longer and is the more "experienced" player. He also can play without the pressure of knowing that he's been paid to be "the man" .

Don't you think that Matt will have grown a bit from year one to year two ? Or are you assuming that'll he'll still be on a Sage type playing level ?

Give the guy a little time. He's the best QB on our roster.

Think this one is appropriate.



Let's pretend that all things between Sage & Matt are equal, except their respective contacts. Sage's contract is much more manageable to trade, for both the Texans and their trading partner. I hope that helps.

Of course. Absolutely ! No doubt about it.
Listen son, I've got some property I want to show east of here a ways. Actually its in Louisiana. It's a little swappy, and you gotta be careful that the 'gators don't bite you. But here's the deal, its prime Real Estate, but I'm gonna let you have it at a bargain-basement price !

That this Matt vs Sage is quickly appraoching the Carr level of stupidity among some posters.

I'm about to stop entering any thread that has either Matt Schaub or Sage Rosenfels in the title.

I want to say that on any given Sunday any NFL team can beat another. Bad things happen to good people. I think we will take this one day at a time and pull together as a team. You are only as good as your last performance and we are only as strong as our weakest link. Can I get a Harumpf to that?

If we trade Sage away, Quinn would be a good backup. But hell to the no on trading Matt. That would be dumb. And honestly, I would sign Gray and have him and Sage battle it out for the number two position.
