Uh nope they just signed him to a 2 year deal...

Why are they signing Fitzpatrick if they plan on keeping Schaub, for third string? Don't think so...

Schaub is now as good as gone. Waiting on the other shoe to drop, possibly soon. Good bye and good luck.

Meanwhile, I see Fitz and Keenum duking it out in camp to see who starts anywhere from a couple of games to a half season or so while 1.1 aka Blake Bortles holds a clipboard and learns the system.

Bingo. I think they go with Bortles, as well, and sit him at the beginning of the season and start working him into games by the end.

Yep. I think Bill knows who he wants and is ready to roll. Whether everyone else knows who they want is another issue, but, Bill has made his decision.

I have seen Fitzpatrick play quite a bit. The guy is a turnover machine. He is a gunslinger with a weak arm.

I mean next to McCarron.

TK, I think you've posted your opinion of McCarton just about the correct amount.
If he busts, your posts will fade into the internet ether and be forgotten, but if he turns out good, you've got quite a few "I told you so" posts to point to. That's basically what you're looking for, right?

Well.... being that I've rarely came back with an "I told you so" I don't think that's the point.

No.. Fitzpatrick is not even a Chinese knock off of Matt Schaub. No question in my mind that the Texans got better when Matt Schaub was traded and Ryan Fitzpatrick was signed. I mean who in their right mind couldn't see that?

The O'Brien/Fitzpatrick running of the bulls is about to run roughshod over the rest of the league!

I think Schaub when healthy is clearly the better QB .... thing is , he hasn't been healthy for quite a while & his injuries get worse with use , not better. He was far from their only problem last season , they have a lot of work to do in rebuilding this roster. They do have a good foundation to build from tho , something other teams with similar records don't have as far as star power goes.


Fitzpatrick is nothing more than a caretaker of the position until the new regime's QB , who they will draft in rounds 1-3 is ready to take over the reins.



Did they get better ? Probably not .... but they didn't get any worse and shed themselves of the contract , saved $3.9m and change in the process.


I wish Schaub the best & hope he has another probowl season , don't even care if he beats the Texans as their record this coming season is of little consequence. Get your rookie head coach & rookie QB some on the job training and we'll see you in the 2015 playoffs.

Wow, already hating on O'Brien before he's coached a single game here.

Why am I not surprised by this?
