    He's going to be battling for the #3 spot with the Rams? I guess Kubiak made the right decision.

    And now he is where he wanted to be, with Linehan.

    This is not good at all and it makes the Texans look like a team of foolish
    spendthrifts ! As I recall, Kubiak wanted to give Ragone a jump on the market
    to find a team to play for, but the Texans are one of the last teams in the
    NFL that should be making a gift to another organization.
    My guess would be that McNair will be seriuosly steamed when he gets wind
    of this event.

    It could have just been an issue with timing. Wouldn't the Rams have rights of first refusal over Cincinnati. If that is the case, then they (and a bunch of other teams) obviously passed on him.

    Hopefully it's only a 7th round pick so we don't look as bad...but with that pick this year we could have gotten Andre Hall...:hmmm:

    There may be logic in what you say, but I've been uncomfortable about this ever since we released Ragone and got nothing in exchange. This only tends to reinforce my concern that we did not even make a luke-warm effort to shop him round for trade value, let alone a thorough, exhaustive attempt to
    work a deal out for a QB who was being released basically because he was
    simply not suited for the new offensive schemes.

    As stated above, the Rams could have nabbed Ragone in front of the Bengals off the waiver wire. They didn't so obviously they wouldn't have given up a pick to get him.

    Good for Rags that is were he wanted to be anyways, back with his old coach from college.

    Bet he is happy to have the 2 towers on each side of him, with Jackson, Maybe Faulk, Bruce and Holt..............Good for him.

    "Rams acquired Dave Ragone from the Bengals for an undisclosed draft pick.
    It's probably a conditional late-round pick. Ragone, just claimed by the Bengals last month, played under Rams coach Scott Linehan while they were both at Louisville. This should bump Jeff Smoker off the Rams' roster, while Ragone competes with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the No. 3 quarterback job."

    Granted it's probably not a high pick, but nice to see we DUMPED this guy for nothing while the Bengals claim him and turn him into a draft pick in a month.

    Did I mention how happy I am that Casserly is gone?????

    This one I had to question, with no NFL game experience to speak of we let go a young sharp eyed quaterback, and go and get Rosenfeld from Miami. I trust our coaching staff but this one stumps me.

    Texans start the regular season 1 - 0 .
