    Was just about to post this.

    It'd be a tempting deal for me. I'd be suprised if the vikings would give up a 2nd for him but you never know.



    For a third, I'd think about it.

    For a second, yes.

    oh nose :/

    2 second-round picks is what we paid to get our starting QB. Tell the Vikes that the price hasn't changed ;)

    No way I do this. Schaub hasn't proven he can stay healthy going back to his days at Virginia and, without something to legitimately back him up, I don't let our insurance go for less than a second.

    Do not like.

    Do not like this rumor at all.

    This league requires two quarterbacks, or one quarterback and a whole heck of a lot of luck. The Texans haven't had their share.

    The Texans much earlier in the preseason denied a desire to shop Rosenfels.

    We have enough messed up need positions on this team without creating another one.

    I think 60 different quarterbacks started NFL games last season. Proof alone that unless your name is Brady or Manning, you need a good back-up QB.

    (Of course Carolina alone accounted for four of them)

    Dell Homie isn't a back-up.

    "Need Backup!!!"

    Put me in the don't trade Sage camp also. Too valuable to have a guy come in off the bench and not lose a beat.

    I say that you have to pull the trigger on this. Schaub is the QB, and the Vikings 3rd is more then I though he would ever be worth.

    Playoff caliber team's need veteran back-ups, for a team like the Texans the pick is more usefull then Sage (regardless if it's a 2nd or a 3rd round pick).

    That is an interesting perspective though. Considering Kubiak's background, maybe we could get away with shipping out Rosenfels, signing a veteran like Nall, and drafting a QB who fits the system in the middle rounds to groom if the Schaub experiment doesn't work out.

    Do it for a 2nd round pick.

    *ahem*... 'Dell Homie' was one of four starters that Carolina played counting towards the 60+ starting QB's last season...

    I don't think Rick Smith will make this trade if it were true. He knows after making the deal for Matt Schaub that having a good backup qb is very important for the team. I would think about this deal if the Vikes would pony up a second rounder to go with the third.

    I know how we can piss off the VY homers!

    Get this trade done (for a 2nd rounder) & then pick up the super-athletic Josh Johnson from San Diego late in the draft.

    Who knows, Rosenfels might be pushing for this opportunity?
