With Houston down to T.J. Yates and Kellen Clemens and either Brodie Croyle or Sage Rosenfels or maybe Dan Pastorini, it’s critical that the Texans add a quarterback with veteran postseason experience, if the team hopes to have a good experience in the postseason.
They’ve scratched Favre off the list, sort of. And for good reason. It would indeed be a circus if Favre were to roll into town. 41-year-old Jeff Garcia got a workout last Monday, but the team opted for Clemens. Unless Garcia was in horrible shape, the value of his game — and playoff — experience shouldn’t be underestimated.
Then there’s Daunte Culpepper. He has four career playoff games, he’s seven years younger than Garcia, and Culpepper remains in shape and ready to play.
“I have been preparing all summer and have continued to work out six days a week throughout this season, waiting for an opportunity to show a team that I am ready, willing and able to contribute where I am needed,” Culpepper told PFT by email.
So why not bring the guy in for a workout? If the Texans fear he simply doesn’t have it, why not make that determination based on an evaluation of what he currently has?
I’m not saying the Texans definitely should sign him. I’m simply saying that they should kick his tires, and compare his resume to those of the guys who currently are on the roster.
