04:56 PM ET 10.13 | To say the quarterback situation for the Houston Texans is dire would be an understatement. Quarterback Matt Schaub has spent most of the 2013 season throwing pick-sixes, and he was hurt in today's 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams. He was replaced by backup T.J. Yates, who thought to himself, "Man, despite the booing, I think these Houston fans have grown to kinda love the Matt Schaub experience. I better not let them down." Yates promptly threw a pick-six of his own. So what are the Houston Texans to do? Well, former Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young has an idea. Young says that he is ready to go and he is more than willing to help the Texans find a win.

I say let Young, Tebow, Russell and Favre tryout for the position.

I think their D is the much bigger issue. Ed Reed is an expensive liability and the rest of them can't stop anybody.

What ever happened to J.J. Watt?

Is the Cowboys defense even putting 11 men on the field. I swear they're only playing with about 9.

What an implosion. Things looked really good at the beginning of the season. So it goes I guess...

Kubiak is just about done fashioning his noose.

VY would be boo'd from his first mistake, and he doesn't have the mental disposition to shake that off.

Just what they need, a head case at QB.

What are the Texans to do?


How about stop throwing Pick 6s for a start. Don't see how VY helps with not throwing Pick 6s???

The Tim Tebow of Texas. No one wants this guy as a back up. Time to get a real job VY.

Well if nothing else Tebow to Jacksonville and Young to Texas would be great marketing ploys to give fans hope.

Not "talent," but rather "talents." Tee hee. Talents?

Wouldn't that be ironic, if ten years later Vince ended up in Houston?

October 14, 2013  03:18 PM ET

After Charlie Casserly declined to draft him back when Houston took Super Mario, I mean. There was a debate raging amongst NFL fans in general and specifically Texans fans on whom to take, with Vince being everyone's first choice and Reggie Bush being number two.

Casserly bucked all that and took Williams first overall, but now Vince has a chance to go back.

Indeed. Crazy, that after Schaub threw a pick six in four straight games and then played INT-free yesterday, that as soon as he got hurt Yates stepped in and promptly threw a pick six.

The Texans must feel snake bit with all the pick 6's.

Those last 3 pick-6's came against the NFC West. Just saying
