    With the minimal progress that we have seen from David Carr in the last 4 years and the immense progress that we have seen from Vince Young in 3 years of PLAYING in college I ask this question: Who would you rather have as the FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK of the HOUSTON TEXANS? David Carr or Vince Young? Vince has become a pass first, run second quarterback as opposed to when he was a run first, pass second quarterback as a Frosh. He is already Texas' all-time leader in total offense as a JUNIOR. Lead the Longhorns to a Rose Bowl birth. On the verge of leading the Horns to an UNDEFEATED season and a spot in the National Championship game against what some argue the "greatest college team ever" or "greatest college offense ever." Will finish in the top 2 of the Heisman Vote. Oh yeah, remember the last time a football team from Houston took a guy from Texas with the first pick to be their franchise player?

    Personally, I'd rather see a guy who threw for over 9,100 yards in his collegiate career and won a professional league MVP by the name of Ragone. Ragone was able to get Louisville into the top 20, Louisville. Vince Young will have to throw for ~3,500 yards in his senior season to get as many passing yards as Ragone, while his best season has been this one projected at ~2,700. Of course, we might could get a feel for if Ragone could do anything in the NFL by looking at him in our next 6 games.:pigfly: If he stinks it up, I'm all for looking at Young in '07.

    Why? What have you seen from Carr in the last 4 years that leads you to believe that?

    I agree. Don't re-sign Carr. Play Ragone in '06, go 2-13. Reggie Bush and Mathis will do what they did this weekend and win you 2, maybe 3 games. Draft a mobile QB in the 7th or sign an undrafted one so the offense can get a feel for what it is like to play with one. If Ragone sucks after at least 8-10 games, put that guy in there. If he does good, your 2nd/3rd stringer has experience. Pick Vincent Young. Sit him on the sidelines for 8 games or so then play him. Sounds like a plan to me. IS IT WORKING NEW YORK GIANTS?

    Half Astros, half Texans, half Bucs, half Rockets, half Yankees, half Cavs: If you read previous posts, and my signature, you would see that I am in support of picking him in 2007 smarts. Know what you're talking about. Till then, you stfu. He hasn't made a decision yet. Heisman trophies and national championships have been made to change minds. Just not Matt Leinart's.

    I respect and love Vince Young too much to want to see him corrupted by our terrible offensive system. I don't want to teach him the "one step drop, no time to read the field, throw a quick slant or get knocked on your ***" Texans offensive system.

    If not Young, Quinn is damn good too. But P-lease.

    Young will be a quarterback in the NFL, and a damn good one too.

    The new coaches we bring in after this year will help that. Unless our owner is a complete moron.
