    Sage should start

    Schaub is awful. I still can't believe the Texans gave him such a big contract w/o him ever starting. Well I guess they do the same thing for rookies but it still seems dumb.

    He has a top 5 WR in Andre Johnson and a good TE in Owen Daniels and he still struggles. Sage has shown he can put up some numbers and I think he should get a chance

    Re: Sage should start

    I agree. Didn't see the game, but just got home to see the stat line - ugh. Sage should be in next week. At worst, at the first sign of trouble with Schaub.

    Re: Sage should start

    Along the same lines. A writeup from the Houston Chronicle about Kubiak staying with Schaub.

    NFL: Kubiak sticks with Schaub for Jaguars game

    Read some of the comments. I appreciated the one saying Sage wasn't a good long term solution but Schaub is if the staff can figure out what went wrong with him.

    How about this, they paid too much for a career backup who looked good when he started in place of Michael Vick a few times. That's what went wrong.

    Re: Sage should start

    I said it back then, the big reason Schaub looked good subbing for Vick is because it changed the offense quite a bit - so defenses had to prep very differently for them. Allowed Scaub to have some nice games - especially when coming off the bench.

    Re: Sage should start

    I said last year after the Texans signed away Schaub and Vick went and got himself arrested that I still didn't necessarily want him back as I saw him as overhyped, and half of this board practically ripped me a new one.

    Turns out maybe, just maybe, the Falcons fan on this board knew what he was talking about and others that don't follow the Falcons might have been off base - maybe, just maybe, Schaub wasn't all he was cracked up to be. Maybe, just maybe, the Falcons now have the better QB in Ryan than if they had placed all their hope in Schaub.

    Wow...that was certainly pathetic.

    Fact is, Schaub would have been a serious upgrade over anyone the Falcons had on their roster last year. I like this Ryan kid so far though.

    Go Sage!! Schaub blows though. Give Sage a chance to start some of these games and he'll show em' that he can get it done better than schaub has

    Re: Sage should start

    ive been saying it sense day one.. sage needs to start.. there is no reason other then money that matt should start.. sage had a better overal year last year then matt, and so far this year matt has looked like a chicken with his head cut off, and you look around the league.. so far teams that have switched qbs.. have done better.. houston needs to look at the big picture


    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."

    At this rate, we may be seeing more and more seneca. The seahawks are just anemic on offense this year. I know its because of injury, but still...everyone can use a little seneca.

    Politics. It would be admitting how foolish they are. They steadfastly refuse to swallow their pride and start Sage in front of their over-priced mistake.

    Sadly, you are exactly right - see also: the Chicago Bears over the last four years.

    The good thing for Sage is that if he keeps playing well when he gets his chances he can pull a Shaub and sign a decent contract based on his work as a backup when he is a free agent - next year I believe (?)

    Debatable - I'm not sure how much better he would have been over Redman. Anyway, I'm not convinced either of them were going to be the future of the team, and sometimes you've gotta bite the bullet to improve the team in the long run (unfortunately, the Falcons have been doing this far too often in their 40+ year history).

    Re: Sage should start

    I would love to see Sage start, especially because I have him on my fantasy bench and my starting qb (Ben Roethlisberger) is starting to look a little shaky.
