    With Symons on will that push Ragone out? Is Ragone worth keeping with Carr Banks and now Symons? Any Ideas how this will shake out?

    They are not cutting a 3rd round pick for a 7th round pick coming off knee surgery, and especailly when the #2 QB is in a contract year. Symons will probably be on the PUP list and/or the practice squad this season...

    Yep, Ragone isn't going anywhere. Symons will end up on the practice squad.

    Yeah I believe there was a piece on HoustonTexans.com in which Capers praised Ragone's improvement from last season. I admit that Symons intrigues me, but I do not believe he will push anyone this season after his injury. I expect him to take the number 3 job behind Ragone in 2005.

    Ragone is not eligible for the practice squad. It is only for players who have not accrued a full season of NFL experience, and free agents who were active for less than 9 regular season games the year before during their accrued season.

    I have a feeling that they'll offer either Ragone or Symons up for trade at, say, next year's draft. I have a feeling Casserly realizes that he can continually draft intriguing, but not stud quarterbacks and flipping them for higher picks down the road. I can't say I blame him. It worked for Ron Wolf in GB. Heck, he had Brunell, Kurt Warner, and Ty of the Detmer sisters at one point or another. I think he traded Brunell and Ty for picks that helped stock the Packers for their Superbowl runs. Heck, the Eagles got a 2nd for their 3rd string QB!

    I think QB prospects tend to be overvalued by most teams. There's always a chance to trade a back-up QB for a player or a pick that can fill in a starting spot. Back-ups for starters...I'll make a deal like that all day.
