Scary as it sounds, we have fogotten, what total QB desparation feels like. The texans have QB mediocrity problem, but enough teams would replace average for awfulness.
I agree with AT here. Let's pretend the Texans had not given Schaub an extension and he was able to hit FA. We know Flacco would not have hit FA, so who else would have been available? Kevin Kolb, Matt Moore, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Matt Cassell, and Matt Hasselbeck? A strong case could be made that outside of Flacco, Matt Schaub would have been the best FA QB on the market. Now he would not have gotten 6 years 108 million, 55 guaranteed(Romo money), but I think a desperate team with money would have thrown say 80 million, 40 guaranteed at him. Why? Because as much grief as he gets, Schaub is still a top 15 QB in the league. There are about 17 teams in the league that would upgrade their QB to Schaub if they could.

The Texans got him for 25 guaranteed. Not a bad deal all things considered.
