Default Re: Texans' Offense and Schaub, Poor Match

My point is that Big Ben holds the ball too long at times - a lot of the time, in fact. As a result, he takes too many sacks, but he also makes plays for his team. He makes those plays because his line does hold up more often than not. When a QB here holds the ball too long, he just gets creamed and it's looked at as a bad thing by the QB (which it is, but everything's relative).

What we need here in Houston is a QB that can make a mediocre pass blocking line look better than they are. When the running game is clicking, Matt's that guy. But Schaub is not the guy that is going to be able to play at an elevated level when the pass rush is coming relentlessly, IMO. Our line doesn't hold up long enough, often enough, and he doesn't have the pre-snap recognition and playcall control that someone like Manning has.
