Cool if it would happen, but chances are... slim
Last year I was very hot to make the move if the Vikings sweeten the offer just a tad. This year a guy I had rated as a second day sixth round "put him in the bank and see what happens" prospect back in October, Josh Freeman has worked himself into the bottom of the first round guy. Not me saying that it's all the draft gurus. All of them. I don't know what that tells you. Tells me there's not a whole heck of a lot of QBs out there. So How's Alex Brink doing ?
In that 4 game win streak we all enjoyed, Sage won two of them. I know I know, he also lost 3 in a row for us and had the Rosencopter incident. However, until Matt can show that he is able to go a full season, I'm not ready to part with a QB who can come in and still enable the team to have faith in the QB position.
If they offered a 4th, I'd take it!
Short of the Rosencopter incident, Sage has been a nice backup for us. Also, I do not think that the Rosencopter incident will mean a whole lot to his chances of getting traded, everyone should be able to see that it was a mental error, him trying waaaay too hard. That stuff can be coached away.
too old for the Jets, methinks
Nope, you don't trade AJ unless he absolutely wants out of Houston.
There is zero faith in Sage as the QB. He blew it last year. Get what you can for him now.
AJ is untradeable, but he could move if he wanted and write elsewhere. I can't see him moving based on his passion for Houston football.
Sage is an interception machine.
I think the Texans will want more than the Jets would want to give up. Rosenchoke had bad season, but he's still one of the better back-ups in the league. With the uncertainty of Schaub staying healthy for an entire season I don't think Sage will be going any where this year. Unless of course, a team's dumb enough to offer up a 2 or maybe a 3.
If a team offered a 2nd, I would drive him there myself.
Yeah, I'd jump on it too. Although, a team would have to be pretty desperate to offer anything less than a 4th.
Hell, I'd jump on the 4th as well.
Sage is what he is at this point; a borderline starter in the NFL who will make mistakes in an effort to win a game. Add to that he will be a free agent next year.
And if Schaub goes down again this season? You think that 4th would be worth it then? I don't
You mean like Favre
It's not like we wouldn't resign another back-up. With the emergence of a running game, I hope, the ability of the needed back-up is lessened. Craig Nail and a 4th rounder is greater value then Sage, in my view.
If you expect the Texans to be playoff contenders next year, you must remember that the back up QBs for playoff teams play about as much as the back-up punter.
I would say we should have traded him last year because he had much more trade value, but Schaub got hurt last year . . again. We cannot get rid of him until we find a suitable replacement for him because I am not confident in Schaub's ability to play in 16 games a year.
Last year a team WAS dumb enough to offer up a third and walked on it. ( The rest of this post isn't directed towards you)
I think we could have found a suitable backup via free agency last year had we done the trade soon enough. We don't need if we get a second RB to go with Slaton we will...dare i dream a consistent running game, an all-pro receiver, and a pro bowl tight end. We just need a guy that isn't going to turn the ball over or melt down at QB.
You can tell me aww shucks but...it's Sage! Great. The same guy that wasted a big lead late in the 4th quarter that cost us a winning season. What a swell guy. Doubt we'll get anything better then the third Minnesota offered us last year so unfortunately I think he'll stay. Figure either way at least it'll spare a year of people splitting over the backup QB.
