    Sirius just reported that the Texans are signing Patrick Ramsey...

    I don't have a link as it is a radio station

    -The Texans are expected to sign free agent Patrick Ramsey to replace Sage Rosenfels as Matt Schaub's backup.
    This is a severe downgrade. Ramsey knows Gary Kubiak's offense after his stay in Denver, but the former first-round pick had elbow problems in 2008 and has never been a good player. Alex Brink couldn't be that much worse.

    I'd much rather have Ryan Fitzpatrick or J.P. Losman, but oh well... Now I'm just hoping nothing happens to Matt Schaub!

    His elbow injury concerns me (I was not aware of that), but if healthy...he does know the system currently installed. There is not a learning curve.
    As echoed above, I just don't want to see Schaub go down again.

    I think he sucks. He looked terrible in that game against the Patriots when Cutler left the game with an injury in the first half. He's never done much in his career.

    What did you think of Rosey when it was announced he was coming here? That's what I thought. Sage sucked before coming here too.

    Well I can at least say I was right since I said this is who they would get from Day 1 but I'm not sure it makes me happy. I liked a few of the guys a little better than him.

    So when does the "Start Ramsey" contingent come in and start complaining that he was never even given a chance to compete for the job in training camp?

    I'd take Ramsey and a 4th over Sage. I cant imagine him playing any worse than Sage did in the 2 wins he got us as a starter this season. If we can win with Sage playing like that then we can win with Ramsey. Ideally Schaub stays healthy for 16 games however!!!

    Ramsey knows the system and should do a great job holding the clipboard while Schaub plays QB. Now we've gotta shore up the defense and get whoever we need to get to make sure Schaub stays healthy.

    Actually, no. I didn't have much of an opinion because I hadn't seem him play.

    let's not forget how good Sage looked against the Ravens.

    I honestly think Brink has a good shot of beating Ramsey out.
