But then is that a suprise to anyone?

Kinda, when its our starters against there second stringers.

I just find it sort of sad, though understandable in the midst of such a pathetic loss, that Sage having a bad game is indicative of his permanence as a back-up, where as Schaub can have an equally bad game and get off of the hook. I don't think either QB sucks, but I've seen nothing that would imply that Schaub is any better than Rosenfels. Which seems to be what people are implying. Tell us where Schaub got a legitimate chance as an NFL starter before Houston. While you're at it, tell us how many years Sage has in the league now vs. Schaub. Stop comparing them like the frame-of-reference is perfectly identical.

I say we blame brakos also. Yep, he snake-bit poor Sage again.

I'm in that club too...just personal opinion but I'd imply that Schaub has played better than Rosenfels. Rosenfels has had a couple of decent games and has looked good in garbage time but after watching both guys I'd be much more inclined to start Schaub than Rosenfels if both healthy.

This, also Sage has been a backup for close to 7 years now, and Miami has had nobody. He could've easily competed if he had the talent.

Schaub is still pretty much unproven, but his flashes of brilliance (Carolina game, KC Game, NO Game) have far exceeded what Sage Rosenfels has shown.

Call it a mancrush on Matt Schaub, or some sort of love for Matt Schaub, or I'm swinging off of Matt Schaubs jock by it's two straps. But I believe that if the line issues are addressed, that Schaub has the higher ceiling of our two QB's.

He is somewhat "fragile", but I think protection would clean up this issue more than anything else.

I think both play a similar sort of football. The only real difference I've noticed is that Schaub is more of an accuracy based QB (shorter passes, more completions, etc), where Rosenfels is more of a gunslinger of sorts. Either one, when playing up to their potential, has the ability to lead the team to victory. It's just a shame that Rosenfels will never get as much credit and will get more blame for doing the same things that Matt does simply because we paid out of the ass for Matt and no one wants to admit that it has serious retrospective bonehead potential.

I took going for it on 4th and 2 more of an indication of lack of faith in Vinatieri than wanting to run up the score. He hasn't kicked one over 30 yds. this season.

I think people have been too quick to call Schuab fragile. He took some very hard hits. What I would consider faulting him for is not having the situational awareness to avoid the hits. I also thought it was very bad playcalling in the Titans game, to call a pass play the next play after Schuab was obviously shaken up on the previous play.

I feel you. My only point is there is no reason for everyone to make Schaub out to be on the same level or below Sage's level. Schaub is a much better QB, much more accurate, but he definitely needs to get the injury thing under control. After AJ went out, Schaub looked average to below-average aside from the NO games. But when it all comes down to it, I don't care who the QB is as long as we are winning games. Right now that hasn't been happening as much as I'd like with either guy.

OK, i've been wiling to give ya' the benefit of the doubt here too, but acting like losing your ONLY Pro-Bowl receiver doesn't affect the overall passing game is just silly.

I think Sage is an upper-tier BACKUP, but he's had a legit chance to be a starter and it hasn't happened. This is Schaub's FIRST chance as a starter - if our O-Line hadn't "whiffed" a few times against the Titans Defense, Sage would still be riding the pine.

He has also had moments of sheer incompetence. Hell, even Carr had moments of brilliance (not that I am comparing the two). I will just have to see much more of Schaub before I believe in him. That said, if he doesn't hack it after next season, I would kick him to the curb. This isn't QB school, I don't want to see my team suffer another 5 years with a bad QB.

You're just taking your hurt feelings from having Carr on the team for so long and trying to transfer them to the new guy (Schaub).

Pretty much the games where Schaub has done well, and even some games he hasn't, he's made Kevin Walter, and Andre Davis threats. He's shown plenty enough for me to think that if he has a better offensive line and more of a running game that he can be good for 250+ yards and a few TD's every game. I also think his interceptions will go down because he will have had another year in the system.

Yeah suffering for 5 years with a bad QB is bad, but this is Schaubs 1st year, and I think he's done enough to be playing for the Texans in his second.

I am sure nothing that wasnt true.

It wasn't professional for starters, and again, it doesn't matter. The Texans should be on over the battle of Ohio.

I hope the fans don't over react about this loss. We played very well the last two games and started believing again. This game is a reality check. We are playing an excellent football team and they are beating us. No reason to throw the team or coaches under the bus for today.

The Colts are playing without 5 of their starters. NO excuse for such poor play. JMO! This is typical Kubiak inappitude coaching. Our guys do not seem to be prepared, and once again, we are being out coached. For those who want baby Shanahan as our next OC, better think twice. I'm getting sick and tired of coaches using the TEXANS as a "learning" experience. FOR GAWDS sake, give us ONE FRIGGIN coach who knows what the hell he is doing!!!!:mad:

As she was laughing she asked me if I thought the Texans would make a miraculous comeback. I said it didn't matter, I'm here to watch my team, my team, the AFC rep from Texas. She said it's not like they're the Cowboys while laughing. I got too angry to talk in a civilized manner by then and ended the conversation.

It's allright, rooting for the Cowboys will get her in the end.

Something I wonder too.

If they would have played with more heart had they still had a chance to sneak in, then I have to put the blame on Kubiak for not getting them fired up to play this game.

Look at the Bears and Bengals. They still played a good game of football despite having no hope of getting in. Why can't we do that? I guess next week at home they are just going to mail it in and call it a year...we'll see.

The Texans play terrible on the road. They do.

You can't make mistakes on the road. You double plus can't make mistakes against the Peyton.

The End.

Exactly. You can't throw 3 INTs on the road. But hey, let's all get together and bash Kubiak!! I'm so tired of the ignorance. We play well and everyone jumps on the Kubiak bandwagon. We don't play well and everyone calls for his head. Pick a side and stay there!

Guess I didn't miss a whole lot today. From what I read on NFL.com, it's a typical Texan game. We score first, then the other team scores a bunch of TDs on us.

I do have a question, I saw in the stats where Mario got another sack. Did he knock Manning down good? Just wondering.

Kubiak had nothing to do with this loss. We played against one of the best teams in the league in their house with our backup QB starting. This game was a reality check. We can beat bad teams and mediocre teams when we are playing our best, but with our injuries we aren't talented enough to play with the big boys yet.

It was ok. He came around from Manning's blind side and knocked into him. Wasn't anything big. Then TJ fell on top of Manning and they called unnecessary toughness for 15 yds. So it really ruined the moment.

We're pulling ourselves out of the mud, but we've a ways to go before we can shut down the likes of Manning or Brady. Some of y'all need to face reality.

Not really. He stunk as bad as the rest of them against the run. He could pressure the QB all day long, but it doesn't mean diddly if the next run play goes for 15 yards.

We were horrible. They didn't show up to play. :gun:

You know, on days like today I think we should change the thread title to something else. It's hard to call what we saw today a "game" so "Gameday Thread" just doesn't work for me. We didn't really make much of a game of it.

Maybe we should call it "Texans at Colts Sacrificial Lamb Thread" or something.
