View Full Version : QB Concerns

As you know Matt is the starting QB for the Texans. I do have a concern though and my worry is there is not any project QB onnn the roster. In fivre, six years from now Matt will be at the end of his career without taking a career ending injury into account before then. Are the Texans just going to trust Dan if Matt goes down for any certain amount time? They shouldn't. Dan may or may not be good but has yet to amount to a whole lot in the NFL thus far. I don't know about you but I would not put all my hope and faith in a guy who has not played well or been on the field thus far in his career. A turn around is not easy in pro sports. I think the Texans should draft a young gun QB for when Matt does retire or just in case something happen to him because you just never know. This is simply food for thought. The Texans do not have great QB depth by any means and it should be addressed.

Are you forgetting Booty and Tyler Sheehan? I think they qualify as project QBs. Not to mention Orlovsky

Tyler Sheehan just signed as an UDFA. He had a tremendous college career though and I tink he is a good project QB. Orlovsky has the skills if he can put it all together.

I don't how many teams draft a QB to groom for 5 or 6 years to eventually take over as the starter. If a QB is on one team for that long, he's probably a career backup.

5 or 6 years is too far to think ahead in the NFL. Once a QB starts nearing the end, a good NFL team will draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round to groom for a year or two.

I wasn't suprised that no QB was taken this year. Although the regime isn't holding on thier nails, the need to win now. Since before this years draft my thought was they would take someone around the 3rd or 4th in the 2011 draft.

I think the Texans have done a good job of going through developmental QBs. 2006, we started a project for most of the year, and had a project serving as his back-up. Then we got Schaub, and took that kid who was on the cover of NCAA football game from Boise state. Then we had Alex Brink, and Orlovsky, and Grossman, now we've got Booty & another UDFA. I think that is the right way to go about it, unless you know you need a QB now. Like Farve retiring, or McNabb getting a little too big for his britches. If any of these guys had proven special, I'm sure we would have kept him, and promoted him to the primary back-up spot. But they haven't, and I don't think that's a big deal.

While Orlovsky isn't Peyton Manning, we could have done worse. He played on a bad team, then came here. I don't think he's been "team hopping." I also believe a guy like Orlovsky can get the job done in Kubiak's system, if we get the running game where it is supposed to be, so I'm not too worried about Schaub missing a few games.

& If something major were to happen to Schaub, Orlovsky would only be a placeholder, until we find that special guy, or he proves he is that guy. I think that's the way you do it, when you know who your guy is.

Given that Texans HC is considered somewhat of a QB guru I think he could do better moving forward. Schaub is his centerpiece but after that I doubt anyone is comfortable, at least with Sage Texans had some reliablity.

If Schaub gets hurt are we really good with Orlovsky? last draft was a weak QB class, but next year looks promising, really like Andrew Luck, Stanford but he is a top 5 talent. maybe a 2nd or 3rd would be in order, going to keep my eye on Wisconsin, Scott Tolzien, productive pro-style QB who is going to be a four year starter & we know how the Texans like those Badger TE's :clap:

I don't know what's up with DanO. He threw some beautiful passes in a Detroit uniform, but so far he's been very underwhelming in Houston.

Does Colorado State have a good QB now, or are we going to wait for an incoming freshman to come out?

Scooter
05-16-2010, 05:52 AM
i'm comfortable with outaboundsky. dude's got great touch, decent accuracy, a fairly quick read, and all the physical tools - everything we'd look for in a draft pick to mold behind schaub. we also have easily the most quarterback-minded head coach in football, as well as the most capable of developing that talent - it's almost insane to discount kubiak's judgment in that area. unlike carr who was forced upon kubiak, outaboundsky is many of those traits but someone kubiak felt he could develope into the sole backup - not quickly (obvious by grossman), but with a season of training.

i also think dan is that intermediate you're referring to gary, someone who can step in if there's a grey area between schaub's decline and our next starter's coming of age. i think this is why dan's being paid so well ... he may never see a snap but he's being paid to be the most capable insurance policy we can have over potentially a very extended time. especially since kubiak would prefer to only carry 2 quarterbacks (a selling point since there isnt a single orlovsky injury on wiki).

i also think it's a bit premature to categorize him since we have no idea what he's capable of under kubiak - the only thing we've directly seen is his first preseason.

I'm a fan, so don't take this the wrong way. I am concerned a little, about his ability.. He's had several QBs come through here, and I wouldn't call any of them "developed."

I think it is more likely that Kubiak is confident in his system than he is good at developing QBs. We've seen that system make mediocre QBs look good. Then you take a special guy like Schaub (& I'll agree there has been some development.) and it looks like, "wow Kubiak is great at developing QBs."

I don't think Grossman being the primary #2 should cast Orlovsky in a bad light. We had already paid DanO to be our back up for three years. Like him or not, Grossman has that certain something that makes him special, that something beyond talent. He took a chance.

Would you not say that Rosenfels was a better player when he left vs. when he came?

I dunno, but I tend to lean more towards him being better.

Also, I think that Kubiak developed some of the later round guys/FA's that came in, but at what price do you hold on to those guys?

They only have so many years of PS eligibility.

05-16-2010, 05:21 PM
Prior to the draft I had an inkling that they might take a project QB somewhere from the 3rd-5th round. Obviously that didn't pan, I think the QB position is just taking a back seat at this point with so many other needs, as well as Schaub coming off a pro-bowl season (and MVP). I give Kubiak a pass on the Carr experiment because I think his readiness to hitch his wagon to DC helped him get the gig. With that in mind I've been pretty impressed with Kubiak's eye for talent. Schaub was a risky move but has turned into a good pro, and Rosenfels made a more than serviceable back up. That track record gives me faith that Orlovsky can make a decent 2nd guy for us (or rather, Kubiak and his system can make him play up to that status), but when he got his chance during the preseason last year I definitely wasn't overly impressed. Even if Orlovsky shows great progression this year I'd like to see us take a project QB with a real shot at success next year in the draft, particularly if Schaub gets bit by the injury bug again this season.

i know what you mean, but i dont think camp bodies like the kid from texas tech, john david booty, or rex grossman and similar qb's really count towards that total. i'm sure some exploratory work was done to guage their potential with training, but i doubt any real focus was put on those guys. the only players we've really spent time working with are carr, schaub, rosenfels, and now orlovsky. carr i think many will agree was a lost cause, forced upon kubiak when he signed. schaub's been magnificent and other than a couple "wtf?" moments sage left here looking like he was legitimately ready to compete for a starting job on several teams. orlovsky's next in that line, but we wont know for a couple more months at what rate (if any) he's progressing at ... my guess is he's getting a lot of attention from kubiak and we'll be pleased with the results.

I think the perception of Rosenfels was better. Like Orton in Denver. Do you think he's been "developed" or that he fits better in that system?

Also, I think that Kubiak developed some of the later round guys/FA's that came in, but at what price do you hold on to those guys?

They only have so many years of PS eligibility.

I would think if he was doing a good job developing QBs, we wouldn't be paying $3 million for a back-up QB.

Agreed and Schaub is no where near the end of his career. He is just entering his prime. When you lead the league in passing, the quote "QB concerns" should be non exsistent.

The only thing "special" about Grossman is that he's better than Orlovsky. The league said as much, when Grossman received the vet minimum to backup in Washington. Orlovsky was handed the backup job and a fat (for a backup) contract. And he couldn't hold the job. If that's not a red flag, I don't know what is.

What we've watched is him becoming the QB he had the potential to be. Kubiak brought that out of him.

Prior to getting here he was a 6 TD, 6 Int, 72 QB rating guy with potential.

That potential has become 29 TDs, 15 Ints and a 98.6 QB rating.

I see Kolb as being iffy. I don't like how many INT's he throws and Philly has long relied on McNabb not being INT prone. I really think that if Kolb comes out and throws a lot of picks in comparison to what McNabb did, that team as a whole could really really suffer.

all the more reason their team is in trouble. David Carr had talent, but couldn't handle the position. Kolb is as unproven as Schaub was when the Texans traded for him. Moore has had a handful of games...

Sam, I think you're spot on here. I see Schaub (28 y/o about to be 29) being effective until he's 33-36(ish).

Especially considering he didn't see much time his first years in Atlanta. He should be able to play for many more years. I don't see QB as a pressing issue. If he goes down the Texans are in trouble could also be said for Andre Johnson or Mario Williams or DeMeco Ryans. Should we draft high quality backups for each star player just in case they get hurt? I'd rather keep a journeyman as the backup QB that you can trust to manage the game.

Wasn't he picked up by the Ravens?

I don't know what's up with DanO. He threw some beautiful passes in a Detroit uniform, but so far he's been very underwhelming in Houston.

Does Colorado State have a good QB now, or are we going to wait for an incoming freshman to come out?

They have a guy named Kubiak playing QB, but he was hurt all of last year so it's hard to tell if he is any good yet.

I like the kid from A&M, Jerrod Johnson. He has the size, a huge arm, maybe a little slow on the delivery, but a solid future pick.

I am unequivocally a state of Texas Homer. So this kid being from A&M may slant my perspective somewhat. But that kid is exciting to watch and I plan on watching a lot of A&M football in the upcoming season because of it. texanpride

Yeah; but why did they get him? Did they beat us to him, or was Smithiak not interested?

The guy was pretty close to 30 as it was when he was on the Dolphins. I'm not sure that's what Kubiak was looking for.

If Kolb gets the INT thing down pat then I think he'll be good and Moore gave the Panthers hope. As with anything only time will tell if they really are starters or career backups. That is a fact.

True. Man even the Raiders looked like a different team with the "G" man QBing but now they go with Campbell

I think Young actually figured it out. I don't think the Titans are going to have QB problems, so long as Young's head is on straight.
