    McClain_on_NFL Jeff Garcia and Trent Edwards are working out for texans with Kellen Clemens and Brody Croyle.


    What do you think of these 4 qb's? Do the Texans sign anyone out of this bunch?

    If we MUST sign any of the four, I guess I'd go with Garcia.

    Jeff Garcia at whatever age he's at would still be better than all 4 of those guys combined.

    I'd sign Jeff Garcia.

    He filled in for Donovan McNabb and actually led the Eagles to a lot of wins.

    He's mobile, smart, and older. Before anybody knocks his age, just remember that a little age might be valuable the deeper into the season and the playoffs we get. You want someone who has seen a lot in the NFL.

    Besides, the offense we have and the defense we have...you just need reliable, smart QBs who can run the plays and distribute the football efficiently.

    Of course, this is just me remembering the Jeff Garcia I saw play for the Eagles several, several years ago. What he does now, in these tryouts, could be a lot less than what Kubiak feels he needs.

    All I know is that I am not comfortable with just having TJ Yates as QB2 right now. We need something else at QB2. Period.

    Does Garcia come with his own supply of Geritol?

    I believe we also are probably looking for someone who can run practice offenses too. I'm sure with Yates moving up that leaves no QB to run the practice for the defense to go against.

    I honestly wish Sage was available as a backup. Can't believe i'm saying those words. :vincepalm:

    Yep.

    Ryan in the other thread, and myself, are thinking the same thing.

    He's mobile, smart, and has West Coast offense experience.

    I agree that he's the best option in terms of talent and familiarity with the basics of our offense (I actually brought his name up on this board last week). The only concern is that in the past, Garcia hasn't been great with the idea of being a backup QB. Here's a blurb from when Oakland released him before the '09 season:

    Two years away from the NFL may have mellowed him somewhat, but if they bring him in, he better be crystal clear on what his role will be.

    In the UFL last year, 51% completion rate (255 attempts) with 9 TDs and 11 INTs.

    I imagine he will be. 41 year old QB's sitting at home during the 10th week of the season aren't exactly a hot commodity. There's no way he can't not know that. Anyone in his position signing with the Texans is a security blanket to keep Yates from being destroyed. He'll be #2 on the depth chart and stay there unless Leinart just completely unravels and lets face it; If Leinart can't stand 41 year old Jeff Garcia breathing down his neck then he's not going to help us much anyway.

    This is a chance to contribute to a playoff run. It's an old timer maybe scoring a ring before he calls it a career. That's what I like about the possibility of signing him. He's not a factor next year at all.

    Who was the QB in Oakland back then? I think he felt that way because he felt the guy in front of him wasn't anyone special. Over here, he knows Schaub is going to take his job back.

    Trent Edwards is the only player who intrigues me. Did decent on some pretty bad teams. Then again he was released by the Raiders earlier this year.

    I saw a few of his games and he was still able to sling it around. What are you going to lose with a 3rd stringer. Honestly if it comes down to.... (I won't say but you know what I wanna say).
