    Is there any speculation or predictions? It's an important question given the finite probability that Watson gets hurt. I'm still not sure whether the OL has been fixed well enough. My guess right now is that Weeden is the backup.

    Most likely. Weeden by everyone's account has the smoothest, accurate canon for an arm.........during practices. The consistent problem over his career is that the smoothness, accuracy and footwork have tended to disappear when the real lights come on. I hope it takes an abrupt change as a Texan if he ever needs to come in for Watson.

    I think no is talking about back-up QB because we really don't like any of the options...

    I mean hanging, firing squad or electric chair???

    If the backup QB is playing the season is toast anyway.

    We will keep three QB'S on the roster. Webb will be the backup to Watson. Weeden will resume his veteran role aka mentor.

    It doesn't matter who the backup is. If Watson goes down we're screwed.

    Another reason we need a serviceable oline.

    I suggest Weeden be hypnotised before each game: "it is only practice..it's only practice.."

    I mean; on Madden I'll be looking for a guy closer to Watson's skill-set. Could there be a more polar opposite than Weeden? Sheesh.

    On Madden it doesn't really who our QB is...hell I made David Carr and Oswieler the greatest QBs that ever lived.

    I'm warming up to the idea of RG III as an option but would RG III warm up to the idea that there's not a chance in hail that he'll ever be competing for the QB1 spot while wearing a Texans uniform?

    I guess he could always hope for DW4 to go down again.

    Despite in one interview, RGIII stating that he could help the Texans, there is thought around the League that he will not quietly assume the role of backup. But most importantly, teams are convinced that RGIIII will never progress his approach to the game in one extremely important aspect...........over all the years, he has refused to accept the concept that he must play "smartly"...............play in such a way to protect himself rather than play the role of extending a play at all cost and misguidedly repeatedly using himself as an indestructible battering ram/punching bag. Teams are convinced that, should he again get the opportunity to play again, he he will most likely spend time in a hospital bed than on the playing field.
