    How do you guys/gals feel about this? Based on what I've read Dan O. isn't coming along like we'd like and Booty isn't either. What you guys think about this position?

    EDIT: I know no games have been played, but just looking for a general overall feeling on this spot.

    I'd be more concerned if I didn't think our running game was going to be significantly better.

    So let's all hope I'm right and our run game is going to be significantly better. :scare:

    From what I've heard Dan has worked hard and seems pretty motivated to improve upon last year's performance. Obviously TC and preseason will be a big opportunity for him to prove it.

    I don't think he has to come in and light it up as much as show he's got a good grasp on the offense, can simply get the ball the the playmakers, and show he can be a competent replacement.

    If not I think the FO would look for a veteran backup who can get the job done.

    If Dan doesn't impress it just is another line of concern for this FO's ability to scout pro free agents.

    To be honest I don't particularly care who the backup is.

    If Schaub goes down the team is screwed as most if not all other teams in the NFL would be if their starter went down.

    Not too many times are you going to luck into having a Brady to take over your team and lead it to glory.

    I know it probably won't happen, but I would really like them to bring back Sage. He knows the offense already and could step in to that role just fine. Yes, we've had the "Rosencopter" to deal with, but for the most part, he's served in the back-up role well.

    Speaking of Sage, not going so well in Minnesota.

    Yeah, that's what I was referring to. Someone posted yesterday that he might be traded (not the same link though). If we can get him for nothing, I'd pick him back up. I think he's definately better than Dan-O or JDB. Hell, what's a good back-up worth these days in draft pick value? We got a 4th for him, IIRC. I'd give up a 6th to get him back......possibly a late 5th. Piece of mind in that position is a big thing. He may not be the best, but I think he'd be the best we have.

    Agreed. Rosen-copter is a much better choice @ backup position.
    Please come back to Houston.

    Sage nearly led this team to a victory over the Colts until he let the Rosencopter loose...
    Might not be a bad addition for QB depth.
