Your premise is false. Matt would not be holding back a receiver like Miles Austin.

He would have trouble getting the ball to a receiver like Jacoby Jones, or Lee Evans, speed guys with underdeveloped skills. Miles Austin, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald... Steve Smith (Carolina)... receivers who can locate & adjust to the ball will not be hindered by Matt Schaub.

No he did not. He played like Matt Schaub plays when his run game isn't working & his receivers aren't as dependable as they were in the past. If you're not expecting him to look like RG3 or Colin Kaepernick, Matt looked fine.

He looked goofy when he broke out of the pocket & knocked the ball out of his own hand, he looked goofy when he got out of the pocket & tried to pick up a first down.... but that's Schaub, that's what he does.

He got the ball out quick when he could & didn't do anything stupid (other than the aforementioned rushing attempts) when he couldn't. That's Matt Schaub.

EDIT: We'll find out soon enough if the Texans are regretting Schaub's deal. If they bring in a more accomplished QB in FA, or if they draft a QB on the first day, it would be safe to say they regret extending Schaub. If they make no moves at all addressing the QB position during FA, or do not address the situation on the first day of the draft, it should be clear....... though people will probably call them stubborn.
