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.
Too many facts for some in here to process...we lost key guys in FA without having him on the books..imagine how many we likely would've lost if we'd offerd 96 million to Manning...essentially just under 20 million a year....
Not only would it have been a HUGE risk for the texans to offer a guy coming off 4 neck surgeries that, we probably would've lost a few of the key guys we eventually were able to resign...Meyers....Arian.....Cush.....
