How? Where who would have been cut (besides Schaub, of course) to makeup the difference in the cap hit between Manning ($18 million) and Schaub (7.15 million in salary cut, minus the $2.5 million in dead money from bonus). That's over $13 million that would have needed to be cleared from the cap. Even with AJ, JoJo, and Antonio redoing their deals (which they did), that would not have been close to enough. Saying the Texans "would have found a way" isn't realistic.
