The Texans spent part of Thursday working out quarterback Tim Couch, who is trying to return from a two-year hiatus from the NFL.

Couch has been going through a long recovery from rotator cuff surgery.

He has played in 62 games since the Cleveland Browns used their first pick on him during their inaugural season back in the NFL in 1999.

"Tim came in, we put him through a long workout, and he had a good workout," Texans general manager Charley Casserly said.

He only has three drills to master:1. The clipboard lift

2. The headset clean and jerk

3. Getting up after 10 sacks in 3 hours.

Give me a break. Yeah he was very inconsistent in CLE but it was on a pathetic team with practically no OL to speak of. He's well worth being at least an inexpensive backup somewhere. I know as a Colt fan I'd prefer him over Jim freakin Sorgi.

So going to the Texans with their pathetic team and no OL....hmm..yeah that is a situation that will work out well

True, very true but I think Big Red was reacting to the extreme replies above almost saying "give the guy a chance".

I agree with you in theory. His confidence may be completely shot from his time in Cleveland and IMO a QB with no confidence is useless. Maybe, maybe not. It seems he's been trying to come back from a rotator cuff surgery and well I find that interesting in regards to Pennington. He was in Giants camp last year and they have "no backups". He should have made it if he were his old self. I'm curious why he didn't, if it was his shoulder, confidence or what.
 
I think they broght him in to see how he compares to David Carr. To see if Carr is as big of a bust as Couch is. Maybe Tony Banks isn't returning or has gotten too expensive. Or maybe they are trying to trade Ragone. No local news out of this that I've heard.

Bri,It wasn't meant to be extreme - just humorous..... funny ha ha....

The Texans QB situation isn't too valuable even if you have Carr. Aside from A Johnson, there's not much value here. Carr did ok / well two years ago, but his cast was different and more importantly so was his schedule.

The Texans will get pounded again this year unless the O-line gets addressed. They can run block but the pass block is terrible.

And the schedule provides little relief - 4 NFC East teams plus the division.

I didn't say it was valuable but I'll play. I like their young talent in spots. Andre is "the man" at WR and I'll take him anyday in FF. Yeah I would have been burned in 05, but I'll get burned again then. He's something to watch and .....Gaffney can be a fine, maybe even one of the best SLOT wide receivers if that's his only role. He does it OK and if they had a #2 worth a darn and his role was defined I think he could do it pretty well if not better than that.

I almost like Marcellius Rivers. He got some considerable time the last 4 weeks. He's the kinda guy that you think is "nothing special" and then gets the job done. First couple years in NY, I'd swear he only caught TDs like Cris Carter. Granted it was maybe 4 or 5 total but....The Texans haven't seemed to use the TE much since their first season so this is right up his alley, coming thru when no one expects it.

Armstrong did well in a couple games his second year and then fll off the face of the earth. he's probably depth.

Bradford is just a deep man he's got his uses and he's OK for depth.

Mathis will change everything if he can become the #2. Wow does he have Jets and IIRC he's quite tall too.

IF IF IF they got a genuine threat at #2 WR in Mathis, then Rivers, Bradford, and Armstrong do actually become role players and as I said before I do think they can fulfill their limitted roles.

Davis is a fine RB. Wells(if he re-signs) is good depth. Morrency or Hollings is more than adequate as a 3rd back although Morrency could easily be #2...whatever, the RBs are fine.

*******

A QB could make this O work. The pieces would be there. A QB that's a sitting duck, can't. Carr has been the latter his whole career. "The money" has gotta be against Carr(and Couch for that matter) doing well but how 'bout this scenario instead? How about they finally get some time to think back there and they show us why they were the #1 picks. They did (or do, who knows?) have a wealth of talent.

It probably won't happen. From what I hear, the Cards, Texans, Jets, and Bills' intentions are to start anywhere from 3-5 new linemen next year. Add in some for other teams and I just don't think there's that many quality linemen available to fill all those holes.

If the Jets cut him as rumorred, I like Fabini and I hope the Texans sign him if their stud T is not available. As Parcells calls him, he's a street fighter. If some DE is getting past him, he's going down swinging. He gives it his all. That's the kinda quietly infectious stuff that Texans O-line is screaming for. Kubiak+Casserly gotta refresh that line if they can't get the studs. Get some firey hustling lunchpail guys that play with heart. Their line is defeated and lacks alot of confidence as a unit.

Everything above the *** is pointless without an OL. If they don't get one then we should start screaming for some new style O changes. Have Carr lining up deep like a Punter. He can shovel pass the handoffs and then he'll have some tiem to throw. Hopefully his arm's strong enough.

Try 2 FBs on passing downs.

Sign sumo wrestlers as O-linemen

Or skip the O, spend a ton of money on defensive free agents and punt every down hoping to win with D.

Yeah I'm joking here but Kubiak better be darn creative if he enters 06 with that line again.

 
Now all they need to do is sign Jeff George and they will set a new record for having the most former #1 picks in the NFL draft at QB.

Hey, at least they'll get known for something else besides sucking.

I was just thinking that. They could sign Leaf and Akili Smith too
 
Quick repeat the reading impaired:

He's well worth being at least an inexpensive backup somewhere. ie at least given a shot.

 
Couch's arm wasn't the greatest before the rotator cuff thing so I'm a little skeptical of his prospects. Having said that, if he shows decent arm strength after his rehab he can't be any worse than Banks. Banks throws it pretty hard to the wrong team...

Not sure if they want to go through the hassle of luring away Leaf from his promising coaching career as QB coach of West Texas A&M or Akili's promising career as a grocery bagger at Walmart.

First off, neither of those guys were #1 picks, they were first round picks but not number one. Sorry.Second, Wal mart doesn't have grocery baggers. They have check out people but no actual grocery baggers.

HTH

 
I think Couch has some potential value. I wouldn't mind seeing him come to Dallas, for a really really resonable deal. All Dallas has is Tony Romo behind Bledsoe, since Henson is in Europe. Why not give Couch a shot.

Why does Houston need him anyway? I thought Dave ragone was pretty promising and they have Banks to hold the clip board and get everyone water.

Ragone is a RFA and Tony Banks is in the final year of his contract. Could be just a negotiating ploy?

First off, why do you think I mentioned Jeff George in the first place?Second, I forgot about this, actually.

Still on the Couch:

The Texans will not pursue a contract with Tim Couch. The former Browns No. 1 draft pick worked out in Houston this week. We hear that either Couch's right arm needs more time to recover from shoulder surgery or his career could be over. Previous workouts with Cincinnati and Miami were equally unimpressive. Couch has not played since the 2003 season, was cut by Green Bay in the 2004 training camp and failed a subsequent workout in Chicago before having rotator cuff surgery.
