Why don't we just hold on to ragone instead of possibly trading him? i just don't see us keeping banks for much longer and that leaves us with symons and ragone. i just don't see why everyone expects ragone to be trade bait, maybe he was drafted as the future backup. when you compare the prices of banks and ragone, there's a big difference in price and as long as ragone doesn't start too much, he'll never make the money of tony banks, who had started elsewhere.

At some point he will want to have the chance to be a starter somewhere and he will be too valuable to keep. So, you trade him and start again on the backup thing. Hopefully, you have a kind of a pipeline thing of good young tallent moving through your system that you can draw on if needed and then trade as they gain value. Greenbay is a real good example of this with what they did for a few years.

Default Thunder on Fox tomorrow

I am looking forward to seeing Ragone in action on Fox tomorrow. However I am concerned about what time the game starts. NFLEUROPE.COM says 10 ETD, but Yahoo tv listings says 12. Anyone know the exact time for us central timers?

Even though it's NFL Europe, the good games that he has been having ..racking up the numbers ... he's not going to be happy to just come back to the Texans and sit on the bench. He'll want playing time, somewhere.

Nice compliment from the coach...
Quote:
Thunder head coach RICK LANTZ said: “Dave has been doing a great job for us all season. He’s tough, and quarterbacks have to be tough, but Dave is really tough. He may be the toughest guy on the team. He makes excellent decisions in the passing game and his statistics show he is intelligent and doesn’t take any risks with the football.”

Agreed Sassy - Thats what I said before the start of the season. That if he did well over there he would want some reps and would earn himself a good enough name we might be able to trade him to a Team where he is needed for someone decent we can use here. His salary certainly wont be a problem and his stats speak for themselves. You know there will be at least a few inital inquiry calls from teams. I'm willing to bet more than afew if they win the bowl. WIll be interesing to see for sure. I think it will be very nice if Charley can spin him into a good player or good picks for next year and get him to a team he can get some playtime on and a chance to start.

Here's a link with more on ragone from NFL.com. Obviously some others are thinking similar thoughts about his QB abilities and earning starter minutes somewhere. Of course it's probably just PR from the team, but it's nice stuff to hear. I hope he does well and they go on to win a bowl and we can trade him to a team for a good player or picks next year.

Ragone, like the Berlin team, seems to be peaking at the right time. Though some scouts liked him from the first, Jim Criner advised watching him in training camp, because "he's the only guy out there who's moving the chains every time he plays."

As usual, Gentleman Jim was right. Ragone's consistency has been one of the keys for the Thunder. The lefty has been picked off only twice, and his current total of 131 passes without a pick is only 56 behind the league record, which Ron Powlus set playing for Amsterdam in 2000.

On the face of it, Ragone couldn't be more different than Davey, but Berlin coach Rick Lantz says what's important are the similarities.

"Dave's not quite as explosive, but he has a strong arm, and can make the deep throws," Lantz said, "but both guys have an innate mental and physical toughness. They've got pocket sense and mobility, they're hard to sack, and they'll take a hit. But I had to yell at both of them to slide -- they always want to be making positive yardage."

That was evident last week -- in fact, Houston Texans coach Dom Capers was being interviewed on television just as Ragone took a fearsome hit rather than slide. Losing your quarterback is never part of the plan, and Capers' memory might have flashed back to Ragone's debut games as a rookie in 2003.

Ragone, a third-round pick, started two games for a team whose leading statistical marker was sacks allowed. In one of his two starts he was actually Houston's leading rusher, basically running for his life.

But now Texans pro personnel director Chuck Banker says he's happy with the success Ragone has had.

Oh no, that article indirectly compares him though stats to Ron Powlus, the man Beano Cook said would win THREE Heismans at Notra Dame

Talking Ragone - Breaks record at NFLE

http://www.nfleurope.com/news/story/8523647

Nice write up on Ragone

Quote:
Berlin Thunder quarterback Dave Ragone wrote his name in the NFLEL record books with his performance on Saturday, throwing 36 passes without an interception during his team’s Week 9 victory over the Frankfurt Galaxy, to put together a streak of 167 passes in a row without being picked off.

World Bowl bound Berlin quarterback Ragone’s record number of consecutive passes without being intercepted has surpassed the previous record of 156 set by Ron Powlus, of the Amsterdam Admirals, in 2000.

"It's nice to have that record. If you have watched some of our games you'd know that our receivers have made some really nice catches, and I've been fortunate not to have some tips picked off.”

Houston Texans allocated passer Ragone has thrown just 2 interceptions in 245 pass attempts this season and his interception percentage of 0.8 has him on pace to smash the league record of 1.1 set by Mike Quinn, of the Rhein Fire, in 1998.

During the streak Ragone has even completed a pass to himself, but the important thing is that no opposing defender has got his hands on the ball. Ragone’s care with the ball has helped Berlin record a league low 10 turnovers this season and to a +11 turnover ratio, tied with Amsterdam for the league lead.

“I got a little lucky there when I completed that pass to myself, and I think luck certainly plays a little bit into a record like this,” he said.

Ragone, who has posted a 97.6 passer rating this season also leads NFL Europe passers in almost every other important statistical category. His 245 attempts and 145 completions for a 62.9% completion percentage are all league highs, as is the 1,698 yards he has thrown for. His 13 touchdown passes give him a one score lead over Rhein’s Scott McBrien going into the final week of the regular season.

“All in all, my goal is to come over here and get better as a quarterback, and I think that I'm doing that every day,” says Ragone. “I think that we have some very good offensive coaches that create opportunities for me to make these passes, and the team is able to execute the plays.”

Ragone started two games for the Texans in his rookie campaign of 2003, after Houston made him a third-round pick in the draft that season. The Louisville Cardinal was a three-time All Conference USA offensive player of the year in a prolific college career.

I think Ragone is going to develop into a NICE backup quarterback for us, and if - if anything were to happen to Carr - we will have a good solid QB right there. I think this will be Banks last year as our back-up and hopefully Ragone can earn his way up to backup Carr.
