    I just got the news from the Texans that David Ragone has been waived. You heard it here first (we try to give you MB guys the early scoop), and will see the update on the site later today. That's all I really know right now, but I received permission to post this as Dave has been contacted and such.

    Quite a house cleaning going on around here.

    Kubiak obviously bringing his kind of player in to fit his system.

    I hope Ragone catches on somewhere quickly.

    I respect that they are keeping there word and getting rid of guys as soon as they know they don't want them therefore giving the players the best opportunity to find employment.

    I don't know it myself, but I always thought Dave never did get a good opportunity to prove his metal with the Texans. :twocents:

    I guess that tells everyone the value of NFL Europe.

    Nick called me (not that it really matters who did - but thanks to Nick for handing out breaking news to us mb guys), but I won't post any bogus rumor since I run the site and I'm supposed to be responsible for it. I wouldn't do anything to get myself kicked out of here.

    Just the ones he drafted or acquired in FA since he got here a few months ago.

    I'm guessing we did this because Quinton Porter and/or Matt Baker have done well so far. He will probably end up being our 3rd string QB. Hopefully Dave gets a good shot somewhere else, as he has a lot of talent and he has shown that in NFLE.

    This is kinda of scary because I read elsewhere that Rosenfels was having trouble getting the snap on his first two plays after taking over for Carr the other day.

    This is one area where we don't have a great deal of veteran depth.

    Mathis and the top secret Texans counter option program

    Seriously though... there are 95 active on the roster. We have two rookies Baker and Porter. I like Porter better, but I have never seen the other guy.

    I feel more comfortable riding shotgun with Ted Kennedy than letting Porter QB.

    LOL! Well hopefully we will never see a 3rd string QB running the ship. Besides that Vinny is still out on the wire... if it came down to it, just hand him a helmet.
