I'm thinking that if the Schaub's re-evaluation does not go well and he get's put on the IR the Texans are going to want to have another QB somewhat familiar with the offense.

I would think whoever they brought in would be QB3...

Jeff Garcia? Is Vinny Testaverde not available? I mean, Garcia used to be a good QB. But he's 41...if the season came down to him then we're probably screwed anyhow.

Garcia isn't coming here... neither are the other 4 who tried out. We are scrimping pennies at this point so that puts Garcia out of our price range.

That is probably why TO said he was gay. TO couldn't believe he left the house either. I mean, wouldn't you retire instead of traveling with a bunch of men?...

Kellen Clemens was with the Redskins in TC and the preseason. So he was probably on the list since he would have learned a similar offense as Kubiak runs.

This is a good summary of his "talents" and short-comings (from SI).

Quote:
POSITIVES: High-percentage thrower who is best in the short passing game. Sells ball fakes, patient in the pocket and displays an excellent sense of timing. Consistently looks downfield, knows where his receivers are on the field and hits targets as they leave breaks. Finds the safety, displays excellent pocket awareness and very accurate in the short field. Does not wilt under pressure or make poor decisions. Throws with a fluid, over-the-top delivery.

NEGATIVES:
Cannot drive passes down the field nor zip intermediate throws. Stares down primary targets. Cannot elude the rush.
Summary..........accurate rubber band arm........

Garcia would get the vet minimum and like it. So would any of the others. What are you talking about?

Its not about what he would like. As a 10+ year veteran, that would be $910,000 to the Texans. Additionally, the Texans would also have to pay a $150,000 fee to the UFL. I can't see the Texans spending nearly $1.1 million when all they have left is $1.9 million with a ton of football left to be played. We're looking for a young'un who would significantly earn under half of what Garcia would cost.

So if they follow form its between Croyle & Clemens
A brilliant observation about the 2006 draft class and the Texans. Just seeing it on paper, again: Allen before Joseph! But wow! All those guys we have on roster. I wonder if another team has ever shaken out like this before.

That's (4) 1st Rounders on roster.

Would really like another QB to be around the practices and meetings this week.

Every week matters. It's not likely that Leinart would get hurt in the Jags game, Yates comes in and also gets hurt in that same game, but it's just the idea that you've gotta' get a third QB in here N-O-W to start seeing, listening, and doing.

Anybody else here a little put off that it's Tuesday and all we have is Leinart and Yates? Bring in Zabranski for all I care, just get a QB3 and let the guy start learning.

There is a vet minimum reduction to salary cap hit for players with 10+ seasons so it would be 50% of the ordinary accounting.

Plus, he would only be active for a maximum of 6 games reducing the original $910,000 to $295,750.
