    Orlavsky was brought in last year to be the backup QB behind Schaub and was overpaid for the position. Rex Grossman and J.D. Booty have both proven, as 3rd string QB's, that Orlavsky sucks and just doesn't seem to be learning or getting any better. God help us if Schaub gets hurt. I'm thinking we cut Orlavsky, and save a bunch of money, and then find another backup QB from the waiver list next week. We may or may not promote J.D. Booty to 2nd string but he could at least compete with whoever we get from the waiver list. Opinions?

    Yup. Give those practice reps to someone worth developing.

    Yeah I'm on the Dan O = failed experiment bandwagon myself. I liked that 3rd stringer from AZ.

    I was hyped too on the Dan-O project. Give Booty the the job.

    I'm thinking it would be a mistake to keep DanO over Booty. Neither can come in for Schaub at this point, but at least Booty made some things happen.

    cut Dan-O, bring back the rosencopter, booty 3rd string. Work that booty as much as they have with Dan-o and maybe trade sage again and see how booty does next year with all that attention dan-o was getting.

    I wouldn't cut him, I'd stab him.

    Absolutely not. Dan-O should be kept until someone can be found that that coaches are confident is better. And that is not Booty. Sage Rosenfels would be great, if the Texans can get him.

    I'm for Sage. In this system, I'd even be for giving Colt McCoy the "Kubiak Experience."

    I would seriously be thinking about dumping Orlovsky for Booty.

    And if Sage came free, I'd have to give him a call (even though I'm not a Sage fan.)

    Those were the strong rumors. However, it seems much less likely after tonight's performance............he went 13 for 13.

    At this point, I would attempt to trade for Rosenfels. This season is that important.

    If Schaub goes down for the season at any point, Rosenfels will not be the answer. In that case, there is no answer. But if Matt goes down for 2 or 3 games, Sage could hold down the fort. And that could be the difference between this teams first playoff appearance, or another January watching other teams play.

    Make the call, Rick.

    If colt got cut I would definatly pick him up. Cut your losses with Dan-O now and give someone else a chance to learn under kubes. Booty has a future I think as a 2nd string qb in this league, but even that will take a couple of years.

    I would keep Booty and I'm not basing that on this game. I'm taking what Booty did in the Az game and this game. He gave us a chance to tie the game vs. Az and tie this game today. He knows where to go with the ball.

    Colt will not be cut. Those rumors were silly.

    You don't take a quarterback in the third round, give him a lot of guaranteed money, and then cut him after his first preseason. It just doesn't happen.
