    Sage 3-0 as starter

    As Cris Collins said, how can you not start him over Schaub when Schaub is healthy?

    Exactly.. the crew was really praising him while i was watching.. i think he does need to become the pernament starter for at least the rest of the year


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Amen. He definitely deserves and has earned a shot.

    He didn't start that game, came in as relief, can't remember if it was due to injury or performance.

    Oh... was that the Bironas game where he kicked 7 FG's?

    Re: Sage 3-0 as starter

    As long as Sage plays at least average football the rest of the way, he'll have the starting job for the rest of the year and if he doesn't have one with Houston next season - he'll have one someplace else.

    I think he's earned the shot to be the guy for someone going into the '08 season. I just hope it's on a team with at least some talent around him.

    Re: Sage 3-0 as starter

    Sage is starting to get compared to Matt Schaub in Atlanta...the Falcons knew he was good and tried to hold on to him for as long as possible (I bet they wish they waited another year) but just couldn't keep him because he became too valuable.

    The Bears desperately need a QB. Coincidence?

    Re: Sage 3-0 as starter

    It was great to see the NFL Network and ESPN singing his praises. Both were on board with him starting the rest of the year.

    Did anybody watch the NFL Network postgame? GOod god. Did you see the rocks that Mario Williams was wearing in his ears?

    The only reason why the Falcons regret the trade at this point is DJ Shockley got injured in the preseason. Shockley's development and popularity in Atlanta (he was a Georgia Bulldog) made Schaub expendable. The Falcons were actually supposed to be OK at the QB position this year until Shockley got injured, as apparently he has the skills to run the offense Petrino was bringing in. But then Shockley got injured and we were stuck with Harrington and later Leftwich, neither of which are the type of QB that are the style of QB that best works in Petrino's scheme (and debatable as to whether they are capable of running a pro offense whatsoever).

    Bottom line, though, Shockley's development made Schaub expendable, and the only reason why we miss Schaub now is that Shockley got cut down with a season-ending injury in the preseason.

    Re: Sage 3-0 as starter

    Shockly has never thrown a pass in the NFL correct? I'm not so sure Schaub was that expendable (maybe they got a good deal they couldn't pass up?). Those are some big expectations on a guy who hasn't even played in the NFL yet. Schaub had shown multiple times (when in Atlanta) that he was a capable NFL starter.

    You obviously know more about the Falcons than I do, did Schaub fit into Petrino's system? Or did they strictly want to groom Shockley into the eventual starter?

    Right, Shockly was a completely green QB.

    Atlanta messed up - period. If they had a QB that had been durable, I would not say that. But, Vick's style of play led him to get injured more often than most QBs. Oddly enough, it wasn't an injury that took him out.

    Re: Sage 3-0 as starter

    I think it's hard to say that Atlanta messed up that bad. After all, what is Schaub's record as a starter with Houston? 4-7? Not exactly lighting the world on fire is he? And he's also hurt, you say? Wow, Atlanta really dropped the ball by letting an injured quarterback with a losing record go.

    That being said, I do agree with you in that Shockley getting hurt was a big blow to the Falcons, but Schaub or no Schaub, this team wasn't likely to do much from the get go.
