    Sage Rosenfels according to 790am is in negotiations of a release with miami he would still have to clear waviers. If wavied would Tenn claim him to block the Texans?

    Sage could be the answer to the following question:

    Which QB is responsible for the single most embarrassing performance a Houston Texan has ever put on?

    Sage is having a physical today with the Dolphins. If he passes the physical, the Dolphins are going to cut him. They aren't sure if Sage at that point would have to pass through waivers or if he would be allowed to sign with the team of his choosing.

    And I would still rather start him over Yates and any QB available to us right now.

    I would love to see Sage back in a Texans uni. I can't believe I just said that. Desparate times call for desparate measures. Yes, he is prone to carelessness (Rosencopter anyone) but he knows the system, had a winning record while here, has experience, and can actually make some plays out there. EASILY bests Yates and I would actually rather have him then dink and dunk Leinart. He is at least slightly better than HTM imo because he will throw downfield, use #80 and put more points on the board. He will also make more brain dead decisions, but I would rather have someone making plays out there then farting around doing nothing.

    Everyone stop for a second and ask yourself this question: "After adding the word "Rosencopter" to the English language does anyone really think that Sage would ever do anything that stupid again?"

    I don't believe he would. I believe he has knowledge of our offense, the ability to step in and manage a game, and enough arm to make the throws required to keep defenses from stacking the line and shutting down Foster & Tate.

    That's really all that we could ask for at this point. It's certainly all we're going to get. Every complaint I hear about every proposed free agent from Brett Favre all the way down to Brian Brohm adds up to "Yeah well do you have a better idea?" and the answer to that, to each and every one of us is "Hell no you don't". I don't either. We are 11 games into the season. All the choices that make any sense are gone. This is a Danny DeVito in "War of The Roses" moment. "There's no winning here. Just degrees of losing". Every single name we throw out there is going to be covered in warts. If said player didn't have problems then he wouldn't be ready to sign a vet-minimum contract as soon as you could get a pen in his hand.

    So Favre is old and he sends pictures of his dick to people. Garcia is old and hasn't played in the league since 2008. Croyle has never done a single meaningful thing in his entire career at this level. Bust, Bum, Loser, Grandpa, take your pick.

    Sage has more going for him in this situation than anyone else on the friggin planet.

    I'd bring Sage in and would not think twice about it.

    If you want Yates to get first dibs as the starter...Fine...

    But it'd make me feel a little better about the situation if Sage was on the roster behind him.

    Honestly, I'm not even so sure we should have ever let him go. I think he just ticked off the fan-base with one really bad decision, which actually took a lot of guts.

    With our def and run game Sage should not have to take the chances he did back then, I mean the Texans were always playing from behind back then.

    I don't think there's any question, they absolutely have to get Sage if he's there... But would he clear waivers all of the way to the Texans? Maybe we should have "Failed for 'Fels" yesterday...

    Get it done. I would much rather have him than any of the other options right now.

    My question is - why is Miami, of all teams, getting rid of him. It isn't as if they have a winning record (3-8). If he was worth anything, wouldn't they put him behind center?

    Rosencopter does know the system, however, and right now that is priceless.

    I guess if we do pick him up, I'll have to stop adding copter to his name.:cool:

    Is he even eligible to return? He was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list by Miami. I'm not certain, but I was under the assumption no player could return to active status once placed on reserve.

    I agree I think Sage can win on this team.
