The QB was Russell, and it's not the concept of Schaub taking his job back next season (when it's very unlikely that Garcia will be here - even if we do sign him). It's the rest of this season when we have a QB named Leinart starting (who most everyone at this point would characterize as not anyone special).

I have high hopes for Leinart coming in and keeping things on track enough to get to the playoffs, and maybe even have some success. That said, there's absolutely nothing about him that would give anyone a reason to characterize him as special at this particular point in time.

Brodie Croyle & Kellen Clemens were drafted in 06 along with Matt Leinart. This was before Rick Smith was GM. Just looking through current Texan roster from this draft besides Leinart, Mario, DeMeco, Winston, Daniels, Texans have added Jonathan Joseph (24th overall) Jason Allen (16th overall) Danieal Manning (42nd overall) Rashad Butler (89th) Lawrence Vickers (180th) & Joel Dreeseen (undrafted).

So if they follow form its between Croyle & Clemens

But given the circumstance, you have to assume that J. Garcia knows they aint going to run him out there with the team to finish out the season. If Jeff Garcia is smart, he realizes he gets an NFL check to sit the bench, run the opponents offense, and a possibility that he can go out and showcase himself still for a back up spot on any team next season.

None of those guys would be starting over Leinart barring injury. I remember seeing Trent Edwards leading the Jags last year and it was really bad.

Default Re: Anyone see this tweet from McClain on the TT home page?

I'd take Croyle if I had to take one of those. He's the safest pick, IMO. He has the tools to be a caretaker QB and he's been a starter in the NFL before, albeit briefly. A 20-something can get back up from more hits than a 41-yr old with diminishing skills. If you;re down to your 3rd or 4th string QB, safe is a good quality.

I'd sign Garcia if for no other reason except to see his wife up close and personal!

Carmella is pretty strong!

The last time Leinart lost his QB job to a late-30's QB it worked out pretty well for that team.

Meh...

In fact, they all fit into the "meh" bucket.

He's mobile, smart, and older. Before anybody knocks his age, just remember that a little age might be valuable the deeper into the season and the playoffs we get. You want someone who has seen a lot in the NFL.

Besides, the offense we have and the defense we have...you just need reliable, smart QBs who can run the plays and distribute the football efficiently.

Of course, this is just me remembering the Jeff Garcia I saw play for the Eagles several, several years ago. What he does now, in these tryouts, could be a lot less than what Kubiak feels he needs.

All I know is that I am not comfortable with just having TJ Yates as QB2 right now. We need something else at QB2. Period.
I don't knock age when you need a QB off the street in week 11. That's when you get savy Vets. I would only ***** if he was the day one starter.

if Garcia is looking better than the rest at this point...sign him.

we are in the part of the season that is a sprint not a race. (well the whole season is a sprint, but this is the nitty gritty part where home field advantage is coming into play)

As good as Foster and tate have been Garcia would die of a hard attack from having to keep running down the field after each foster/tate long run. Poor guy wouldnt make it
