Default Would you sign off on keeping Matt Schaub if...

If the Texans got your QB in this draft... regardless who it is. If you want Bridgewater, imagine we got Bridgewater. If you want Connor Shaw, imagine we managed to get Connor Shaw.

Would you be ok with him competing with Matt Schaub for the starting position?

No, I have Garoppolo in 2nd round and think MS is psychologically kaput. We should take any offer Raiders or Browns offer. We have OBrien and a QB coach to train up rookie & Keenum.

Why do a lot of people seem to have like such a personal grudge mentality towards Matt Schaub ? OK, he had a terrible year and had a lot to do with us going 2-14, but some of you act as if it was all because of intentional acts by Schaub as if he actually wanted to sabotage our whole season ?
I doubt that he's around this Fall, but if the new HC surprises us, maybe even shocks us with a plan that includes Schaub this Fall, I'm with the coach.

But he left Houston to get his mojo back and it was probably the best result for both.

Lidge went on to the World Series with the Phillies while the Astros stayed at home and watched. He also made the All-Star team and was in the running for MVP once he got to Philly.

Yeah, I'm thinking Schaub hopes you're right.

Related question:

If O'Brien thinks he can restore Schaub to a 2009 level of play and brings him (Schaub) back, does this make O'Brien an id!ot in your eyes?

Schaub was certainly part of the reason we won 2 games and responsible for some losses too. Case on the other hand just losses

See, I'm here. I think that Matt Schaub is profoundly broken the way Jake Delhomme was broken. He's caught in a decision-making-death-spiral from which almost no one ever truly escapes without a complete change of scenery (and even then it's rare). This is Brad Lidge territory. This is time to move on territory. I don't trust Matt anymore. I think that's where the Texans were about the time Kubiak got fired and Keenum got told he would not be sitting down again barring injury.

Where they are today I don't know but we'd have to be drafting the successful clone of Troy Aikman for me to be OK with keeping Matt Schaub around. If anyone can get us out of his contract (I'd literally give them a 6th or 7th rounder to take him) then we should jump at that chance.

Default Re: Would you sign off on keeping Matt Schaub if...

I am indifferent.

On one hand I am ready to move on from Schaub. Just deal with his dead money now, instead of letting it linger for another year and then still dealing with his dead money.

On the other hand there is always the chance that Schaub can rebound from his horrendeous season in O'Briens offense with some new coaching. He is a vet who in theory could come in day 1 and really put some defenses on their heels.

But at the end of the day I have to think that the best option is to go with a new QB, let him get the experience of playing an entire season, while getting the cap in hand for a run in 2015.

I voted yes.

Something wasn't right last season, wasn't just Matt. Other QBs got off to a really bad start last season (didn't set any records or anything), Matt wasn't given an opportunity to work it out... to save face.

I'm not a Schaub fan. I'm not a Schaub hater, Like TexansBill says, it's the name on the front of the Jersey I root for.

I want to win, I want the Texans to win & I believe our best shot is a QB who has won games in the past, or a rookie who can beat that guy out in an honest open QB battle.

Even the most devout Matt Schaub hater has to admit, if he's honest, Matt is the best veteran QB available to us at the moment.

On top of that, I'm very interested to see Matt Schaub with an OC & HC like Bill O'Brien. If he brings that pedal to the metal, no quarter given, New England offensive mindset to Houston, we might be in store for some pretty exciting football.

No, I don't think there's a chance that OB is going to turn Schaub into Tom Brady, I don't think he has to. We've got Duane Brown, & Andre Johnson, & DeAndre Hopkins, & Arian Foster, & Jj Watt, & Brian Cushing. There is no reason for Schaub to have to put this team on his itty-bitty beedy eyed shoulders.

Now this is with the caveat that they draft our QB of the future. For me it's McCarron or Murray... but I won't be upset if they draft Bridgewater with 1-1, or Bortles, or Manziel..... or if they draft Tom Savage in the 5th or Garoppolo in the bottom of the first.

Now if they draft Logan Thomas in the 6th & only Logan Thomas, I'll be upset. But I won't say gripe about it unless he busts... if they draft a better prospect next season I'll forget about the flyer in 2014.

Lastly, if you look at the concepts OB talks about in his clinics you'll see it's very similar to what Schaub was doing under Kubiak. Granted, getting a QB familiar with OB & the system he ran/runs would have been ideal... Matt Cassel, Ryan Mallet, Brian Hoyer..... but it makes no sense to do it on anyone else's terms than ours, when we've got the next best thing (Schaub).

There is absolutely no way I would ever allow Matt Schaub to be on the roster of the team I love with a $14M cap hit... but I wouldn't put it past McNair. This will have no effect on our rebuilding efforts. We're not going to be spending money on any big named FAs...... doesn't make sense. We're going to draft as best we can. Next season there will be more cap room to add choice FAs to another strong draft class & make some noise in the NFL.
