    "This has been bittersweet for me," Rosenfels said. "The bitter part is that (trading for Schaub) ends my chance of competing for the starting position. The sweet part is that Matt is a heck of a quarterback, and we've got a chance to be better with him. Hopefully, he can help us become a contender."

    That's about as professional as a man can be. I'd give him rep if I new his handle on here. I'm starting to get on the bandwagon a little bit and am very excited to see how this season plays out. If we can address 2 or 3 of our MAJOR holes in the draft, we just might be a dark horse in the wild card chase.

    Great quote from Sage. He sounds like a great guy. I feel the same way about the situation he does. I wish he had his chance, but the Texans just upgraded the QB position in a big way.

    Umm.... maybe I'm a little slow on the uptake right now, but what's 'comical' about it?

    Sometimes its nice to see a real honest opinion from a player. I don't blame him for having some level of disappointment, and the fact is Sage is still only one play away from getting a legitimate shot.

    Sage Rosenfels is a great locker room prescence, he worked out with the team when he had a broken hand.

    It has to suck for him. Professional atheletes are usually very competitive and, from childhood, used to being the best around at their chosen position.
    I imagine all the talk of the player I won't mention anymore leaving HAD to make him think he would get a shot at starting, especially after Garcia signed and Plummer did whatever it is that he's done(did his retirement papers ever make it to the league office?). It would be hard to think that you're the 33rd best QB in the league after being a Pop Warner, High School and College stud.
    Kinda sux for a lot us too. I'm sure we'd all like to see what he could do as a starter, but also want Schaub to come in and kick serious tail.

    Good name for it. Had me going there. :embarrass

    Yeah, I really like Sage. I was onboard with the idea that if we got rid of Carr, go ahead and make him the starter, and don't get another quarterback. Just address all the other needs first, and then get one later. But that's when all I thought they trying to get were people like Plummer.

    This deal they made for Schaub still blows my mind. I'm happy about it though. Just never expected it.

    To me this says something about Carr. With Carr, Sage felt he was gonna get a chance to get on the field.

    And it says something about Sage as a person too.

    My guess is that Sage will get his chance sometime this season anyway.

    Sure. The Texans have the rest of the league running scared now.

    My guess is there will be about a dozen posters with IP addresses from the Fresno area hitting the message board about 8 seconds after Matt Schaub throws his first incompletion.

    I think the obsession will run another year or more depending on how things turn out for the two QB's involved, and I'm not talking about Sage. Short of injury Sage probably won't see the field unless it's a blowout (in either direction).
