I believe they will do what it takes to keep the core of the defense * Cushing , Watt and KJax * together in the coming years.
The offense only AJ and Schaub are .... elderly and AJ could be productive even if he does decline.
Schaub .... maybe he gets healthy and takes the team to the promised land but if not , I think they could replace him and still be an elite team on both sides of the ball beyond this two year window.
It all boils down to what talent Rick Smith can plug in at QB if Schaub needs to retire / move on.
Let me clarify. By "right now," I mean within the next two years. Our window to win a Super Bowl is two years. After that - the year 2015 - the team will have to be broken up in order to keep key players.
A lot of our contracts are backloaded; eventually, the bill will come due.
We. Have. To. Win. NOW.
