Don't you guys think that, in his third year, if Yates was "all that", that he should have Schaub looking nervously over his shoulder?
Schaub may not be well liked by the fans, but Kubiak loves the guy. Schaub's job is safe & will be safe. After 2014 if Schaub wanted to sign an extension with the Texans I'm sure the Texans would do it paying him at least what he's getting paid now.
Our next starting QB is going to earn the job on the field, not in camp, not in FA.
