I took a flier on Favre for name value, potential upside, and a great schedule this year. Regardless, in a 10 team league there are usually decent scraps in the free agent pool. Right now, Shaun Hill, Delhomme, and Flacco are available.
I think Schaub is a very solid starter and could easily be a top 5 QB (if healthy) this yr. Shaun Hill is a steal for a back-up QB...IMO...heck I got him in the 18th RD of my draft. He will be a great filler and they have a favorable schedule this year. Palmer is more name value. I personally wouldn't draft him b/c he plays Pitt/Bal twice a yr. But, you should be able to get some good value from him in a trade......something like Palmer and one the low end RB/WR (Wells/Jones/Chambers) for somebody a little bit more solid (Rodgers, Rivers, McNabb, Romo?) I'm sure someone will take the bait. Garrard is a solid starter as well, not flashy but a solid starter that won't make many mistakes.
