Truly disappointing that that thought is already crossing Schaub's mind imo.
When the Texans got the early lead and played downhill i.e. run the football, pass off the run and let the defense rush the passer, as ugly and frankly boring as that stuff was it was the Texans at its best.
We really don't want the ball in schuab hands in high leverage situations, so playing that way is the best option for 2013, especially since any dynamic playerrs will be coming from the draft and relying on rookies is not a high percentage gamble.
