    Texans are going to sign Jeff Garcia as their third QB. They want 2 veterans behind rookie T.J. Yates. Jake Delhomme signed last week.

    That stinks for Clemens. He really does seem like a good guy. Oh well, he's made more money than I'll see in a lifetime. Can't feel too bad for him.

    So, when the Texans win the Superbowl, does Cemens get a SB ring?

    Sounds like Clemens didn't pass his QB exam last week. LOL!
    Great job Texans. Show the team that you are still working too!

    why didnt they sign him in the first place and waste money on Kellen

    im not the coaches but at this point i would think Kellen is a much better QB then Garcia .... hmm but hey im not the coaches who watch him 24/7

    Jeff Garcia? Didn't he play back when they played in pastures while wearing leather helmets?

    The Garcia fans get their pick! Haha

    Not a bad idea I guess. Clemens was never going to see the field barring we our 3rd and 4th QB go down for the season. I like the idea of having these two veterans helping Yates. This is obviously TJ's job and I'm glad they're giving him any resource they can to help him grow.

    I like this signing a lot more than the Delhomme signing. Garcia was one of the elite QBs in the league a few years ago and I think he can impart more useful knowledge to Yates than Delhomme can. I also feel better having him as the backup instead of Delhomme.

    Does anyone know if Delhomme and Garcia are even mentor type players?

    They could both be 'holes that only care about themselves.

    Now that doesn't sound like the type of player the Texans usually sign but something in the back of my mind thinks Garcia has stated previously he only wants to be in a situation where he could be the man..... I might be misremembering.

    You would expect however Garcia to learn a system faster than Clemens just based on experience.

    Could this possibly be about having a mobile QB to practice against. Seems like now we got someone who will tuck it and run to practice against.

    This was actually my only concern regarding Garcia, but I guess if he's running the scout team, it's not as big a deal.

    Everything I've heard regarding DelHomme is that he's a great person to be put in the mentor/big brother role. I think that's at least part of the reason he was chosen over Garcia last week.
