This is true, but remember this is the Texans. There were 31 other teams that would not pay a gimpy over-the-hill safety $6 million, too.
I'm not sure if the Texans FO understands that other teams operate differently than they do.

I do not think anyone here thinks Schaub has trade value.
You sort of answered your own statement with the last sentence. This is Kubiak we are talking about, Marvin Lewis 2.0 of the AFC South. 8 seasons and two playoff wins.
While the rest of us and 31 other teams don't see trade value, that does not mean the Texans FO sees the same thing.

Naaa . . Perish that thought. That couldn't possibly happen.
Well, we are
a collective group-think as a forum.
In all seriousness, though, what context do you think Kubiak meant that statement? Just motivation for both QBs?
Kubiak has always been sort of cryptic with his statements. Often they are probably just sort of milquetoast wording to avoid letting any information out. So yeah, probably overreaction by fans - what we do! - and not much else to it.
That said, he's sailing the seas of cheese.
