    Unconfirmed source (but pretty solid) says the Texans are going to sign David Garrard. As long as the contract is reasonable I'm fine with it. He'll be a better backup than TJ Yates, and it'll be just that much more fun to bust the Jags again with him on the roster.

    Sounds credible... They're not making this decision until Schaub is on IR... Plus, Garrard had back surgery, and I'm pretty sure he's out for season.

    Me either. "Time Machine" is starting against the Jags. No player in existence other than Matt Schaub is more prepared to start that game. Beyond that it's possible that the Texans might entertain other ideas but a lot of that is dependent on how well Leinart plays against Jacksonville.

    I'm sure that another "unspectacular" veteran QB is in the cards if we won't be seeing Schaub again this season. I doubt it would be Garrard.

    Several reports said that DG needs IMMEDIATE surgery for Disc Hernia (10/17).

    While waiting for CNND to give his take, I found this on Wiki:

    Surgery should only be considered as a last resort after all conservative treatments (non-surgical therapy) have been tried, that did not alleviate the pain and heal the disc herniation. Also, surgery is indicated if a patient has a significant neurological deficit.[35] The presence of cauda equina syndrome (in which there is incontinence, weakness and genital numbness) is considered a medical emergency requiring immediate attention and possibly surgical decompression.

    Doesn't sound too good!

    For what it's worth, my opinion is that he would be brought in to backup Leinart, it's too late in the year for him to be a #1 option unless Leinart completely tanks or is injured.

    Can we stop with these threads?

    Garrard had back surgery this year and is not available.

    Why is it starting to feel like the off-season in here?
