With Texan quarterbacks falling like British Tommies at the Somme, speculation is rampant that the team might sign a veteran who would give them a better chance in the playoffs than rookie T.J. Yates.

We're not sure we buy into the theory, but the names being tossed around all come with advantages and disadvantages. Let's examine.

4. Brett Favre Disadvantage: His playoff performances in his NFL dotage were as uninspiring as his dick pictures. Advantage: ESPN coverage of the Texans increases exponentionally.

3. Daunte Culpepper Advantage: He is a self-proclaimed "Jedi knight" on the field. Disadvantage: Most depressing wiki sentence ever, in terms of his ability: "Culpepper was named UFL Offensive Player of the Week twice in the 2010 season." There are four teams in the UFL.

2. Jeff Garcia Advantage: Terrell Owens is no longer around to imply he's gay. Disadvantage: Got beaten out by Kellen Clemens when the Texans auditioned retired QBs after Matt Schaub got hurt.

1. Sage Rosenfels Advantage: Knows Kubiak's system from his Texans stint. Disadvantage: Does not know that the system includes a rule against going on fumble-inducing helicopter leaps into the air while protecting leads.
