I don't think anyone expected the Colts to go to SF & stymie the 49ers. We didn't expect our Texans to either, but now the pressure is on to at least get a W.

Watching how the 49ers played against the Colts, you'd think someone would think we've got a chance. Unfortunately, I doubt we can find 53 people who do.

The homers here will say it never happened, but I thought I saw a spark when Tj took over in 2011. A spark in the team. Not that I think the team thought he was better, or would rather Tj over Schaub... but like you I think we're all ready for a change.

When we get rid of Matt I'd be more interested in the other problems. Until that time, I think we are just spinning our wheels. Every team is going to have holes in the damn. We just can't afford to have a qb that creates more holes and isn't good enough to cover any others up.
I think we're too focused on the QB. I believe "It's a QB league" is over-played. Even the best QBs will lose a game every now & then. No running game, look what happened to Green Bay yesterday. It's been happening to Romo for the last 5 years or so. No defense... Kaepernick can look human. Your play makers aren't making plays... look back at how mediocre Brady looked against Baltimore in the AFC Championship game.

The big difference between those guys & Schaub, is that they'll win a game for their team more frequently than Matt will. Roethlisberger & Eli "should" be in that group as well, but they're faced with more problems right now than they can overcome.

We won 10 games in 2011 & would have won more had Schaub stayed healthy. We won 12 games in 2012 with a gimp in December. This is our team & while I will agree Schaub isn't pushing us forward, he's not holding us back.

If it's 4th & 2 and my HC has no confidence in running the ball with either back, that tells me our problem is not our QB. This is a team. Teams win games. Teams win Division Titles, teams win Championships.

So yeah, I like Cushing & Watt & Jjo, etc... but when we needed them to get the Ravens off the field, it didn't happen. Doesn't matter how we got in the situation we were in.

When we needed Arian or Tate to pick up a first down, it didn't happen near as often as it should have. If we need Andre, or DeAndre to make a play & pick up 2 yards on 3rd down..... didn't happen. The QB picked up 4, the play maker needs to pick up 2.

I'm not asking for everything to go right, just asking for more than what we got, from the whole team.
