Do you think the Texans' thinktank will decide the time for a new QB is now? Is the window opening? Is the window closing? How would the window be affected if we made a change? How would the window be affected if there was no change?
- 1 game under .500
Is Matt on a really short leash? Does the F.O. have any confidence in Matt Schaub?
- 2 games out of .500
More of the same, no confidence, longer leash?
- 3 games behind the division leader
Now it's real? The division is on the line. It's not all Matt's fault, but he has the biggest impact on the team. Changing this one position, has the potential to radically improve your team.
- risk of a losing season
The F.O. still believes Matt gives us the best chance to win. It will take a natural disaster to unseat Schaub.
How likely do you think that is to happen?
Kubiak may be welded to Schaub but welds can be cut.
If it looks like the division championship/playoff appearance is at risk - and
the screw ups can be traced to Schaub's substandard performance - then Kubiak changes horses. Meaning if Foster is running well and the defense is keeping the opposition scores within reason - 17-24 points/game then I think it's on Schaub to get the ball to the playmakers. They look at the game film every Monday. If week after week the film study shows Schaub is leaving points on the field, then Kubiak will make a change. He won't lose his job because Matt can't cut the mustard.
Remember what he said right after that "we believe in Schaub" statement? The very next sentence was "...but we're going to continue to push him to get better." He tried to dress it up by saying, "we're going to push everyone to get better." But that tells me he was not happy with Schaub's performance. That whole, "we believe..." schick is Kubiak refusing to throw Schaub under the bus. But, IMHO, he was no happier with Schaub's Dec/Jan performance than we were.
