This is a political maneuver not to save the texans season and field the best team to win, but to field a team that doesnt make your general manager and head coach foolish for benching the guy they just gave a brand new contract to.
This is a political move to save face for rick smith and gary kubiak for giving schaub a new contract instead of peyton manning.
They made this bed and they have to sleep in it despite it having full of bed bugs and needing to be fumigated.
Your attempt to make a martyr out of matt is just plain pathetic. Nobody has a problem with schaub personally. The guy is a family man, a stand up citizen, and has never gotten in trouble in the law. He is a good guy and all of the criticism towards him are football related.
Spare us your fake indignation for the sake of protecting a quarterback not doing his job.
This is a business. People pay big money to see the texans plays. Fans have the right to show displeasure against a player holding a team back.
Its nothing personal, this is just business.
The Peyton Manning argument is ridiculous. He had a career threatening injury that caused Indy to cut him loose. It was a high risk move. Also, the Texans would have had much difficulty fitting him into their cap and their would have been a lot of cap casualties that would have lasting effects on the roster's makeup.
Again, nobody is arguing that the Texans, nor any other team in the NFL, always make the perfect move. Simply, I am saying that the decision to play Schaub this week is not about a lack of accountability... Perhaps it is a bad decision. We will see. However, it is a decision, I am confident, with a view on the team's success this season.
