    I don't see how he is an upgrade over Banks. He is another prototype size guy with no instinct or intangibles with a career 49.5 completion % heading into season 6....The Texans seem to like ideal prototype guys who have no game instinct.

    He was the #3 QB on the Miami Dolphins. Enough said.

    I really don't understand them looking at Rosenfels, Brian Griese just got cut so I think he'd be a solid enough veteran (if he's willing to be a backup) and has experience with Kubiak's system, so I think if we can get him at a decent price that he should be our top choice at QB free agent signing.

    I think he will be demanding to much money.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how much money he'll be looking for and if he's trying to find a starting job or if he's content as a backup. I think he would at least be worth a call to come in for a workout and discuss contract requirements.

    Houston, again.
    According to ESPN, Tampa is trying to workout a deal to keep Griese.

    Delhomme was a backup for the Saints and was traded to the Panthers.

    Rosenfels agrees to terms with Texans

    Dolphins free-agent backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels agreed to terms with the Houston Texans Saturday on a four-year deal worth $7 million, including a $2 million signing bonus, according to a source.

    Rosenfels, 28, originally drafted by the Redskins in 2001, has been primarily a backup for the Dolphins since 2002. He made his first start in the 2004 season finale against the Ravens. Last season, he was beat out for the starting job by Gus Frerotte, however, an injured finger sustained by Frerotte gave Rosenfels his second career start against the Browns on Nov. 20.


    Rosenfels struggled, going just 5 of 10 for 14 yards before being replaced by Frerotte in the 22-0 loss to the Browns. However, Rosenfels redeemed himself when he relieved a woozy Frerotte at the end of the third quarter of Game 12 with the Dolphins trailing the Bills 23-3.

    Rosenfels completed 22 of 37 for 272 yards and two touchdowns to direct the Dolphins to a 24-23 victory, the greatest fourth-quarter comeback in franchise history.

    Whoa now, give the man some credit for his vanquished foes! :) He was the #2 man last season, ahead of the mighty Cleo Lemon.


    This isn't an upgrade, but it gets the backup younger...it'll be interesting to see whether Rosenfels can beat out Ragone for the backup spot. One thing's been consistent in Miami, though...Sage is always a preseason MVP who looks like he's heading into a breakout year, then somehow manages to slide to the end of the bench. To be fair, last year was the first real regular season playing time he'd ever had, and it didn't start pretty. Maybe the move'll kick-start him and he'll be solid backup for the Texans.

    What exactly is the point of drafting/having Dave Ragone now?

    Sage did some okay stuff last year when he played a few games. His first game against the Browns couldn't have gone worse, but he bounced back in a big way against the Bills and got like 300 yards and 2 TDs in a win. That's more than we'll ever get from a hack like Tony Banks.

    As a third-string QB, obviously.

    Delhomme isn't a prototype anything at QB. He has an average arm, average body, and can't beat anyone in a footrace. He's the exact opposite type of player I was referring to. Delhomme is an excellent QB, but he is intangibles and instincts instead of ideal measurables.

    Wouldn't it have been cheaper to keep Banks?

    What's the point in even keeping Banks on the roster though? If he ever has to enter another game, it's a guaranteed loss. He couldn't even beat the Niners. The NINERS.

    Not to mention Tony Banks once lost his starting job to TRENT DILFER.

    Hell, even before he was on the Ravens, look what happened with the Rams. They were one of the worst teams in the league when he was starting. Then, when they exchanged Banks for Kurt Warner in '99, they went from junk to Superbowl champs overnight. That's how bad Tony Banks is.

    There is no point is having him. We'd have a better shot at winning a game if we stuck Reggie Bush under center and ran an option offense than if we told Tony Banks to throw.
