    Not a terrible signing for a 4th QB. He's familiar with the system since he was with Shanny in Washington.

    As long as he isn't related to Glenn Beck.

    When I saw Beck released I was thinking the Texans would make him an offer. I think he has a real chance to make the team. Not thinking at this time that he beats out TJ but I can't rule it out. I'm guessing #3 with Case on the Practice Squad....or maybe Case will come down with a terrible hang nail right at cut time. I like the idea of having someone with real NFL experience in that role.

    Beck has skills and was a high pick for a reason. Kind of a similar story and fate as Hot Tub Boy.

    If I had to compare him to anyone... it'd be the strangely close comparison to Sage Rosenfels. Went through both the same teams in Miami and Washington and was never able to capitalize on the train wreck that has been both QB situations the past few years (Ok well maybe Campbell wasn't terrible but, he wasn't good either)

    I would think the thought process is at least he played in a similar system run by the Shanny's. He's got some ok physical tools, nothing to write home about. I still laugh at that draft by the Dolphins, Cameron was way in over his head.

    I didn't know Jacoby was Mormon. I was mostly referring to Hebron, our UDFA defensive tackle.

    Beck was a high pick because he put up big college numbers as a 25 year old senior. He's started a grand total of 7 games in the 5 years he's been in the league. Losing all 7 games. Beck will be 31 by the season opener. 31 and likely out of the league. He's a camp arm who's sorta familiar with the system. If it came time to actually need a QB to suit up, I rather see a 37 year old Delhomme come off the couch.

    I'm pretty sure JB meant Moron.

    I don't think Jake want to go through a training camp in Houston. Who could blame him? But once the regular season begins, and the Texans are in a bind, I could see Delhomme making his way off the couch.

    For some reason I'm feeling like it's less and less likely schaub is going to play this up coming season.
