Punter Shane Lechler is the No. 3 QB for the Texans so the team is stuck with Yates today, but what about the future? One guy is ready, willing and waiting to help...
Former Texas Longhorns star, native Texan, and currently out of work quarterback Vince Young took to Twitter to let the fans and teams know that he would be quite happy to help the team out:
Let them know VY is in shape and ready to go! I always loved my birth place and everyone who lives in it IM READY

He is getting some support too:
Texans need the hometown favorite @VinceYoung real talk all this is gods reason to get him here @HoustonTexans

The word on Young was that he had a good camp with the Packers, but they didn't feel he was able to pick up the playbook fast enough; granted-- he was having to learn it on the fly which can't be easy.
This kind of thing is going to be just like the love that Tim Tebow gets from the Jacksonville Jaguars fans. Yeah, it would be great to have a home town kid behind center to help drive ticket sales, but making the move is akin to saying the season is done and we just want to make sure we make a little money now.
Than again, with the way the other Houston quarterbacks are throwing interceptions for touchdowns playing them is tanking the season too.
