    Question Give Sage a chance!

    Does anyone else think Sage deserves a chance to be a starting QB in the NFL? He's been around long enough and seems to play well when he gets a chance. I know he's not real mobile, but in the right offense, I think he could flourish. There's a few teams out there that could upgrade by signing him. He deserves a shot before it's too late in his career.

    100% Agree, maybe the Ravens could pick him up.

    The Bears need to get Senaca or Sage.

    Re: Give Sage a chance!

    I think he would fit in real well with the Lions. He is a big guy with a pretty strong arm. However if I were the Texans, I would be holding on to him. 4-1 as a starter, if he is able to get 100% of the reps from the coaches he might turn out to be your man. I know they paid a lot for Matt Schwab, but he has not done anything in the NFL except have potential.

    Nice thought, I doubt it will happen. No franchise is as nice as the Seahawks.

    Schaub, Matt 11 11 192 289 66.4 2241 7.8 9 9 97 16 87.2
    Rosenfels, Sage 9 5 154 240 64.2 1684 7.0 15 12 93 6 84.8


    Season ending stats for reference. They seem to be fairly similar results wise - but I was surprised by how mobile it looks like Sage is - 10 fewer times sacked and only 6 overall on a team that helped put David Carr in the record books for it.

    He's kept the training staff busy...

    Re: Give Sage a chance!

    I think Sage has done a decent job. But he throws too many picks. If he cleaned up that part of his game, he would be a sure starter. I do think that he's earned the right to be in competition for a starting job somewhere next fall. I'd love to see Seneca get a shot too...or move to WR.

    I agree that he throws too may picks. But I also think that this would improve with experience. He just needs more playing time. Hopefully he will get it soon.

    Re: Give Sage a chance!

    Please don't trade Sage to the Bears-Brady would look more Rexish than Bradyish behind that line and with that lack of a running game.
    As bad as I'm sure he wants to start, he's pulling down $2.6M per year as a backup with the Texans, in a state with no income tax. And given how much he was needed this season, I'm sure he can look forward to a pay hike/restructured contract.

    It does not suck to be Sage Rosenfels.

    Re: Give Sage a chance!

    Sage has a better TD/INT ratio than Shaub and has been sacked 10 fewer times. Unfortunately, I don't think his chance will ever come in Houston as the Texans would have a tough time swallowing their pride.

    Sage has seemed to be on the cusp of a starting job for the last three seasons, it will be interesting to see if he ever breaks through.

    He has thrown more picks, but he has also thrown more touchdowns than Schaub. Shaub is 9-9 while Sage is 15-12 td-int. So take your pick. I think it is six one way half dozen the other, but I would rather see Sage play.
