    No way the Cowboys let Testeverde go. They are going to need Bledsoe and him both around in case one of the two breaks a hip! :rofl:

    Unless we need a QB Coach then I don't think we have much need for a 40+ year old QB. Besides if you think a mobile David Carr had trouble behind our OLine just imagine how many times a statue like Vinny would be sacked.

    Dan Pastorini for backup QB. Why not? Everyone else is qualified.

    This somehow seems strangely familiar...

    Before you post something like this, think about it. Would the Texans really look to get a guy who isnt cut from his team. At this point is the 05 starter, and is 41 or so years old?

    We have Carr, Persons, Ragone, and Symons. Why oh why I ask, do we need Vinny?

    as i have been listening to the compelling arguements as to why the texans need an experienced backup quarterback, and a complimentary back for DD, i hit on the solution. Thats right my friends, i can solve all the problems of the texans. First of all, the quarterback is a complex position, needing veteran, proven leadership. Thats why i propose we get Joe Namath. Before you brush me off, consider the following. 1) He is a younger, better quarterback than vinny testaverde or drew bledsoe, both of whom my colleagues have suggested picking up. 2) He has won a super bowl. 3) we get a salary cap break for the senior citizen....4) he will pick up many a sideline reporter. Now, on to the running back issue. Since DD is a proven starter, and only needs a back to spell him for a couple of downs, here is what we do. We sign Earl Campbell! Think about it...one of the greatest runners in houston history, revitalizing a young franchise, adding another exclamation point to a brilliant career, and under Namath's supervision, winning the super bowl!
    Mmmmmmmm.....thats good satire

    haha i knew when i was watching sprts center yesterday and say that they were gonna get bledsoe that someone was gonna start a thread about us getting him :whistle: , but what good would a one year back up do for us, cause when he's gone we'd be right back at where we are now, no old soild back up QB, so i say we let Ragone develope, i saw potential in him last pre season !

    Oh, that is a GREAT idea. And then we can get Doug Flutie and Vinny Testaverde too!

    No really.......WE DON'T NEED TESTAVERDE. He just needs to retire already. Hmm....I would like to see Flutie play for the Texans, though. Just to seem him do a Hail Mary against the Titans. :whoohoo:

    how about Ryan Leaf? he has all the intangibles.. and he knows how to lose so he will know what not to do. And I bet he will be willing to play backup for the league minimum.

    Someone needs to start a

    "Matt Stevens a Texan?" thread.

    Then this whole thing will be complete.

    I think Vinny will go back to the Jets myself.

    He's a classy guy. I hope he has success in football or coaching or whatever he decides to do.
