Drayton Florence is a P.O.S. ! Little Punk . They showed the hit again just now and it just makes me mad . I don't care what team its for , if a Texan player would have done that I would feel the same way ,

Vince Young sure looked a franchise QB this week.

If you want to complain, complain that we didn't select AJ Hawk.
That would be just as dumb with Ferguson sitting there. The Texans just should have known Carr was GARBAGE in the years we had him before we signed him to the MAX extension. We could have had a franchise QB PLUS the two draft picks we gave up for Schaub.

It's hard to overcome really bad FO moves and really bad coaching...the combination is a really bad team.

Theres nothing wrong with Mario Williams. But as a team that needed a pass rush...Mario Williams wasn't a good choice...I'm sorry but it's true.

fikster: David Carr's suck and lack of attitude and passion infested this team. You need to burn the entire thing down and start completely over from top to bottom. I feel sorry for player like Ryans, Dunta, and AJ who have had to suffer through this crap on a personal level.

The more they replay the play where Schaub took the hit that knocked him out of the game, the more obvious it is that it was a very flagrant cheap shot "TO A QB" that perhaps should have got the Chargers player thrown out of the game.
Expect the player to be fined by the league office this week.

More than Kubiak, at least visually. Kubiak always has poor body language and doesn't look all that confident as he looks at his feet at the podium game after game. At least Belicheck and Dungy appear confident when they talk. This is one of the softest teams I've ever seen. This goes to how they pick their players and how they go about deciding what kind of personalities a football team should be made of.

Look, I know it's Sunday, Vinny, and we're getting blown out and all that, so talking out of emotion is the rule of the day. But I'm not going to get the on "get rid of Kubiak because the team sucks" bandwagon". That's knee-jerk and you know it.

Both he and Rick Smith have stated from day one that we're still a couple of drafts away from becoming a good team. And I don't put much stock, one way or another, in Kubiak's mannerisms. We all have our little quirks.

Even if that guy wasnt there for the INT, if Walter catches it he would have been hammered by the CB coming right at him. Walter should be glad it was picked, cuz Sage hung him out to dry.

Why would expect anything less than what we are seeing here today. Other than quarterback, where have we significantly increased the talent of this team in that past 2 years? The Texans are rebuilding. Sounds stupid, but the Texans are rebuilding after the failed Don Capers experience.

Gary Kubiak may fail as a head coach in the NFL, but we do not know that after just 24 games and 2 drafts. He has made some mistakes in player evaluations and game plans, but that should be expected from a first time head coach. Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry did not wear his emotions on his sleeve and his first two years in Dallas he was 4-20 and did not have a winning record until year 7. I’m not saying we should wait 7 years to evaluate Kubiak, but we need to give him longer than 24 games.

Vince Young sure looked a franchise QB this week.And what is the Titans record compared to the Texans? What is Vince Young’s record as a starting quarterback? I wouldn't mind the Texans putting up 53 of offense every week, if they won.

I don't want thugs but I want some attitude and somebody that when it comes game time they want to knock someones block off or put teams away. As I said last week I'm tired of week after week having that same lame press conference of "these are good kids, I'll slap them on the butt and send them on their way and prepare for next week."

well I still dont see the great improvement at qb, his poise and pocket presence, and that great leadership ability that carr didnt have has given us 3-5. I say that 46 million or whatever it was would have been better spent on 2 or 3 needs. 5 td's and 7 int's after 8 games not very impressive and the numbers have been getting worse not better as the season goes along.

Honestly. If I don't see someone from the Texans coaching staff or one of the players get fiery mad in a press conference I am going to beleive that this team just doesn't care very much. The whole team should be red hot after this game, but I doubt I will see any emotion from anyone. They will probably interview Anthony Weaver and he will say with his soft tone, "You know we just have to go out there and prepare."

He was only a league leader in stats befor the last two games where injuried forced him out. We are getting behind the 8 ball before we even have a chance and he is still better than Carr with 10 career starts or whatever compared to 5 years.

I never said who was or wasnt better it was in response to someone saying significant improvement. I still stand by what I said, is there improvement, yes, significant, no.

I said in the beginning of the year schaub should start good then when he starts to get hit and game film adds up on him we will see what happens, and it hasnt been good.

Since the first 2 wins, 1-5 2td's 6 int's and 7 fumbles.

Because your not watching the same games I am. I watch the pocket presence, etc and still am impressed despite what we are giving him. I never could say the same the last two years. I still like the way he plays and think he is a vastly better option than we had with his number of starts. He definitely isn't perfect but I don't see someone lost after years of playing and leading us to a dead end. Plus his stats were still pretty good going into the last two games..not just after the first two. Its the difference between knowing football and just looking at the small picture.

still I have never said he isn't an improvement, my arguement is the degree of improvement. thats all.

I have said before that schaub is not that acurate as far as where he puts the ball, and I was told I should be kicked in the head, but he has shown a consitancy of throwing the balls high and low and behind the recievers. His best throw and his biggest improvement over Carr is his deep ball,is usually right on as well as the confidence the team has in him which is huge.

His biggest fault so far is he can't take the beating that Carr did which could be really bad since he is already beat up after 8 games. The constant hurting is what leads to the happy feet short passes and anticiation of getting hit. The way its going that might in his future unless the o-line can get things straight.

I understand and respect your argument, I don't think Matt Schaub has played great either.

You have also got to take into account how many times Carr fell down and protected himself when he was hit. Schaub fights for everything. He takes hard hits because he is making plays as he is taking them. Carr would take a 5 yard sack by falling down in front of a lineman. Carr was also the king of "happy feet". When Carr took a snap it looked as if he was panicking the entire time. Schaub looks poised. The improvements are very evident, they shouldn't be hard to see.

Your point may be true about Carr being less prone to injury however.

I have said before that schaub is not that acurate as far as where he puts the ball, and I was told I should be kicked in the head, but he has shown a consitancy of throwing the balls high and low and behind the recievers. His best throw and his biggest improvement over Carr is his deep ball,is usually right on as well as the confidence the team has in him which is huge.

I'd say his biggest improvement over Carr is his ability to read the field. He finds alot more open targets than Carr did. His accuracy is also improved from Carr. Carr's throw never had touch. His throws were almost always bullet passes and he was always fighting to throw around people. Schaub's throw is very controlled and he knows how to take a little off and drop a pass in when needed. Carr apporoached every throw in the same way: throw it really hard and get it there really fast.


Overall, I think Schaub is playing fair but showing me that he can be a guy to build around. His arm looks good, even his deep ball which people were saying was his weakness I beleive. He reads defenses very quickly and finds the open man on many plays. I expect him to throw interceptions this year, but he has thrown more than I would have liked. The biggest problem I am seeing, as you mentioned, is fumbling. Sometimes it is almost impossible to prevent but it is something he needs to work on. I understand that it is his first season starting but ball security is something I would drill into this guy's head early. With that I think he can be a great quarterback.
