Default Sage Rosenfels....

Sage is ditching number 18 and will wear number 2. Sidney Rice didn't want to ditch 18 so he had to pick something new.

Sage said he picked it because he has two children and likes the band U2.

I figured it was because someone asked him to pick a number that most closely represented his level of play in the Colts game.

Yes, I'm still bitter about that. So what?

Well, we get to see him again in pre-season. I hope we win, but I also hope Sage has a good game and a good career with the Vikings. I wish him all the luck in the world, except when they are playing us of course.

Default Re: Sage Rosenfels....

I could care less about Sage Rosenfels. The Colts game showed me all that I need to know about that over-rated backup QB.

I don't wish him any ill-will, but I'm not going to root for the dude.

Allrightythen.

I agree though. That game told me it was all about him, not the team. I think he was trying to make plays himself to improve his own opportunities rather than helping the Texans seal the deal against a good team.

I know teams (except Dallas) usually don't go all out against the passer in the preseason, but I really hope we put him on his ass multiple times. Without injury of course.

That's my take, as well. His play was selfish. Instead of just finishing the last few minutes the way he played the entire game before, being a good field general and sealing the deal, he decided it was audition time. I just can't get past the mentality and the fact that this type of play seems to be his M.O.

I'm sure he's a nice guy and all, but this isn't about him personally. It's about Sage the football player. I can separate the two as a Texans football fan.

Easy, easy now. We need to remember Sage doesn't like to be yelled at. What a puh c.

When a career backup player chooses the number 2, you have to start getting a clue as to how he values his worth

I like Sage a lot as a person (and as a backup QB). I wish him the best in Minnesota or where ever he may end up. I really like the Chicago Bears so I won't be rooting for him against them or the Texans. Now that the Bears dont have Grossman starting and traded for Cutler, they'll be an even more fun team to wach. So I guess it boils down to, I want Sage to have success but not enough to where it effects the other teams I like. haha

Problem with this line of thinking is that Vince didn't realize they wouldn't carry enough QB's in Tennessee.

"Come on Coach... I don't want to switch my number to 3!"

Sage is still a backup after "auditioning" in every game and Vick will be playing for $200 a game. At least some things are right in this world.

Since the douche cost us our first winning season.

*disclaimer - we had other opportunities to win games but the rosencopter was by far the biggest example of selfish asshatery seen in many years and, as such, makes Sage the perfect scapegoat for me to dump my frustrations upon.
