Schaub #2 all time, passing yards in a game?
 
I tried my hand at some Google-fu, and this was all I could find.

So did Matt Schaub, with 527 yards today, just tie Warren Moon's #2 record for most passing yards in a game? Awesome, if so.

Yep, he's already on the wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...500-yard_games

Also, I believe Andre Johnson's 273 yards put him in the top #10 all time for receiving yards in a game.

I believe there was some people asking for more passing by Schaub in the 20k thread a couple of weeks ago, think I posted pointing out that Kubes has a pretty itchy trigger to air it out when behind. Didn't even need the itchy trigger today we were well out of the game in the 4th Q and went nuts to bring it back.

When Kubes said we need to find more ways to win this week, I'm not sure that was exactly what he had in mind, but we still got the W, and aside from the two INT's, I was pleased to see that we do still have it through the air.

Kubiak calls a really very extreme percentages game, if we're ahead, we run the ball with the odd pass thrown in to stop the D from cheating, behind? Air it out with just the odd run here and there for the same purposes.

Its kept games close and led to respectable records when we've had a porous D and sketchy OLine play (8-8 years) and it seems to work a charm now too.

Happy with the win today, and that is the most important, I hear the coaches do an all-nighter tonight due to the Thursday game to get the gameplan ready for the players to come into on Monday, well they have a ****load of things to go through on our own game before they move on to looking at how the Lions play. 9-1, just win baby!

Schaub had his typical questionable throws but dammit if he didn't come up HUGE. Next time someone says, "Schaub isn't clutch", show them this game too.

It's crazy how fine a line it came to. If we had lost that game, people would probably blame Kubiak/schaub.

Our no huddle is lethal, wish we went with it more often.

I was moments from calling for Schaub's job last week, all is forgiven.

Nah, I think we're past that as a fan base :kitten:

I think it would have been more on D. They had a rough day today.

Vintage Schaub 2010. Only this time it goes in the W column.

Only Schaub can throw for over 500 yards, complete 43 passes, and 5 touchdowns while going largely unnoticed.

His modest style may not excite fans, but I guarantee you his teammates and coaches love the guy and believe in him. The dude can play. Those 527 yards weren't cheap. That last throw was the only screen pass of the game and there were no quick slants taken for 80 yards. I don't even recall a great catch. Nope... he just continued to fit the ball softly into his receivers' hands, over and over and over... Greg Graham, Owen Daniels, James Casey, and Kevin Walter combined for about 200 yards.

What, you think this just means all is forgiven of Kubiak???

We got the win, but damnation Kubiak went back and forth all day long...doing things that made sense (causing us to succeed), then deviating from it (causing us to suck). It was the most wish washy playcalling day I have seen in a long, long time.

The determination of our guys out there, and a bit of the Jags losing their nerve in important moments, saved our asses today.

Whether it is Dennison or Kubiak or both, I don't know, but this game and the GB game are the only two games I've seen our defense play a bit "off." This thing of the Texans' offense kicking back and sort of sleepwalking, it happens too often. We're a great team, though, and the leadership by Schaub & his offense is what is willing this team to victories.

Schaub is QB of the year, IMO. Period.

Honestly, if Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, or Brees put up these numbers, the media would be slobbering all over it. Schaub will never get that kind of attention, and I think that's probably the way Schaub wants it. I have been worried all year that we are not being tested in games and that could hurt us in the playoffs. It's good to see that our offense responded in a big way when it needed to. That was a big win and it came from a QB who should (but probably never will) be mentioned when talk of current elite QBs is mentioned.

I have wondered if the reps players were getting were because of the short week. Forsett played a lot more than expected (and probably should be getting a lot more carries based on his play today). Kubes still frustrates me with his playcalls, but you take the good with the bad. He's done good for this team and we can't just give all the credit to Wade Phillips.

Second on the Schaub for QB of the year. He's clearly been the best game manager.

Did he tweet to forgive you already? :)

I remember watching the Oilers game against the Chiefs when Moon threw for 527. Seems like the Oilers let up at the end and got the win and did not make an effort to break Van Brocklin's record which I think Moon would have easily done.

Man .... Van Brocklin's record of 554 has stood since 1951 .... Thats amazing.
