I'm sure this will somehow get blamed on Jared Allen somehow.

He's been injury prone and there is no way around it. NFL spectators, analysts, and fans everywhere mention that before they say anything else when Schaub's name is mentioned. "If he can stay healthy" seems to be the token line with Matt Schaub. I'm so tired of hearing it, but it's totally relevant.

I acknowledge it last year and I got ripped by most for it. Got some negative rep for it. Most said that it was the "cheap shots" that injured him. I kept saying, most Qb's get cheap shots but they don't go down like Matt. We will see who's right by years end. I hope I am totally wrong. But everytime I see Matt with any pressure, I cringe.

I will be the first to admit he's had his troubles staying on the field. Having said that I don't think he would have left this game if it was in the regular season. He did return to finish the half.

I don't wish injury on any player but it seems every time he gets a solid hit on him he has some new injury.

If you guys do not think that every team he plays goes after that ankle you have not watched football in the last 30 years. Limping off the field and basically telegraphing your injuries to the opposition .... you might as well put a target on that spot. Not saying it is right but you better believe he will get more pressure on that side until he proves his ankle in

I'm sure having those cheap shots didn't help. Having someone hit your knees like that twice in one game is going to make you miss some time. Just ask Tom Brady.

Yeah, But Tom Brady has missed ONE season... has played well over seven seasons, including many many playoff games. Matt can't get through one season. And I ain't betting the farm that he is getting past this one.

He's missed time because of a dislocated shoulder, and because of those cheap shots from Allen. I would assume that a lot of people would have missed the same amount of time because of those injuries.

The whole team is betting on him staying healthy, though. I would bet this year wouldn't be as productive without Schaub.

That's the million dollar question... What if matt misses more than three games this year. What will Rick Smith do? Draft a Qb in the first? Free agent Qb? Getting a good reliable QB is not easy, just ask the Houston Texans. There's not many around.

So let me get this straght:

A Titans fan wants us to admit our team has QB issues? That we've got way too much money tied up in a guy that never sees the field?

Watch your own team's QB's light up the field. Regale us with the legendary connection of Collins/Washington (sure to outperform Schaub/Johnson at season's end). Something tells me Schaub will have better numbers than Young at the end of the season, no matter how many series Schaub misses to get his ankle taped.

Teams may attack Schaub's injuries i.e. sprained ankle or go after him physically, etc. but by the same token, teams will attack your QB's intelligence.

Acknowledged and it's not fun saying that.

Nothing we can do about it now but hope for the best. It's depressing knowing that all the spin in the world isn't going to help this. Matt's got some talent, clearly has the desire, and I think is willing to go out there and play hurt to some extent but he just doesn't appear to have the necessary durability to be an every Sunday guy. We're mostly good as long as we can keep him clean but guys like this tend to find the injuries regardless of what you do.

Hey, we could get lucky. Even Chris Chandler QB'd a team to a Super Bowl once.

We need to be keeping an eye open for his eventual replacement. I'm really thinking next year or two we draft a rookie QB. Hopefully when that guy appears in the draft and we take him the rest of the offense will be in place and ready to start making some noise.

What are you babbling on about? All I said is the guy is injury prone and when all you do is scamper out of bounds and you come up lame it just gives more proof. The Titans are a run first team. Collins is there to keep the defense honest and manage the game. And yes I would hope that your starting QB will probably get better numbers then our #2 guy.

I believe your number one pick in 2006 was also injured while running out of bounds, and isn't he supposedly "athletic"?

What are they going to attack him on the bench? Might as well compare him to D. Orlovsky because they actually play the same spot. Young's numbers have blow Orlovsky's out of the water this preseason. Plus Orlovsky is more likely to see the field because of Schaubs troubles staying upright.

Young's numbers are better than Orlovsy's and in the preseason?
Whoa. Impressive!! :user: Especially considering one guy was the 3rd overall pick and the other guy was a 5th rounder or 145th overall pick.

LIke it or not guys Arrow actually has a point here this time. Schaub's been hampered with injuries the last two seasons, and he just sprained his ankle on a freaking hand off for heaven's sake. We'll most likely need to draft a QB next year in the draft, because I'm scared to death every time this guy even gets the slightest contact. Until Schaub plays a 16 game season he's the most injury prone starting QB in the entire NFL.

I can easily admit Schaub has a problem with injuries. If he's unable to stay on the field this season I would hope our FO opts not to pay his option.

That said, at least Schaub ain't scared. I don't want to bother searching for the picture, but the run by VY against the Browns at the goaline was pathetic. He pulled up with fear of being hit........and he still fumbled the ball. What a puh c.

I don't really care about the writer not having his facts correct, but how about Texans fans actually know what is going on? Schaub rolled his ankle when he ran out of bounds on the north end of the Vikings sideline when it transitioned from grass to whatever that other surface was. He was then ginger to limping for the rest of his time in the game and it didn't hurt anything.

It doesn't really matter. He still got hampered with another injury again. It may be minor, but it looks like yet another sign for what to expect in the future. I'm so tired of worrying about this guy and his injury concerns and how well the back up can once Schaub goes down, since it's practically a given at this point. This team can't really go anywhere until they find consistency at the QB position.

Was McNair injury prone? He barely practiced his entire career but he was there on game day. That's all that counts. This ankle is a non-issue/non-injury unless it causes him to miss playing time.

Mcnair is of no comparison. LIke you said the guy was always there on game day and was a great QB. Schaub has never even played a full season in his career yet, and once again he's got something bother him again. It may only be an ankle right now, but it's nothing be encouraged about what so ever. Until I see him play a 16 game season, I'll be terrified every time he gets touched even by a mosquito bite.

Guys, Texans fans have been talking about it for a couple years.

And the cheap shots 99% of people are referring to were the one in San Diego by the safety whose name is escaping me which was so egregious it not only received a fine but the NFL sent a letter out to the reffing crews saying in the future such hits should result in immediate expulsion from the game and the two shots by Jared Allen that resulted in a $50k fine. Haynesworth drew a flag (which I thought was called for by the rules) but I wouldn't call it a cheap or particularly unusual play.
