I like the trade more for Houston just because Yates wasnt making the team or so i thought and Dent might be okay in Houston

If Yates makes the Falcons I'd be surprised. Guy is an awful QB.

While I agree he sucks, I dont know who else Atlanta has at QB outside of Matt Ryan

We have Dominique Davis. UDFA who was a teammate of Matt Ryan during his BC days. According to same Falcon fans on the official falcons board the best QB in the league and better then Matt and Vick combined but I feel he's more like a poor mans Joe Webb.

Sean Renfree. 7th rounder who was injured all of last year. Can't say much about him but I doubt he's more then a 3rd stringer at this point (if not a candidate to be cut straight up with Yates in play)

Dominique Davis is one of those guys that looks really good in preseason but 9 times out of 10 it doesn't translate to the regular season if he ever gets a shot. Guys like Josh Johnson, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tyrod Taylor, etc... I would put in that category. Granted Fitz had some major success for a short period of time in Buffalo before imploding...

He took like three snaps in the regular season at the end of a blow out and got injured instantly, which probably says more about how bad our o-line was last year. I have no faith in him as a backup, but I don't know how much I have in Yates, either.

Meh, just another trade featuring backups that probably won't make the team to a team that they might. The Falcons wanted to see if they could upgrade their backup QB position, and the Texans need ILB depth. Both guys will probably make the roster on their new teams, but won't be starters.

I think you might be overrating DD here a little bit. Ryan Fitzpatrick was an average to poor starter for a while, Josh Johnson showed real flash during last pre-season (Atleast the game I remember vs the Falcons)

Dominique Davis took 10 snaps vs a 4-12 Bucs team and got injured in the process and didn't show much last preseason.

I don't hate DD or anything, I just don't think he'll ever be a solid backup option at QB. Atleast Yates has played and won a few games (Notably one against the Falcons, part of the reason why I think the FO pulled the trigger on this trade).

Sucks to see Yates is going to take the job from Matt Ryan.

Very good trade for Atlanta, they won this trade IMO.

At least Matt Ryan caught up to Yates in playoff wins.

What strikes me as odd is the day before this happened NFL.Com reported that Yates had been released by the Texans.
