Re: The Matt Schaub Compendium
I say give Schaub one more year before we throw him under the bus. Yes, he faded down the stretch against some teams the Texans should have beat. But dang, the dude led us to a 11-1 record at one point. He's got some work to do, like his deep throws. He got picked off too many times this last year trying to throw a bomb. But I still remember the Denver game where he beat Peyton Manning at his own game. How about the butt-whooping of the Super Bowl Champs? There was lots of good last season, on top of the bad at the end.
If Schaub comes out and has a poor season, then it's time to re-evaluate our options. But in the meantime, let's see what the Texans can do by addressing some of the holes on the team that currently exist...like the fact that Schaub only has ONE player he can throw the ball to for passes greater than 15 yards, where as guys like Brady have Welker, Hernandez, Gronkowski, etc. Also, let's shore up a defense that had some big gaps. They can't just rely on JJ Watt to get pressure every down. Brian Cushing's return will help, but the defense needs depth that wasn't there last season. Granted, how many ILBs were hurt?
If Schaub gets upgrades to his offense and still can't perform, then it's time to head into next offseason with a QB in mind. But give the guy one more season to lead the team.
