Yah, I agree that he probably doesn't have an angenda against certain teams and/or players either (unless he does... hmmmm)...

My purpose here is done ha, which was to point out that he's just like a lot of the big stars in his business, they'll go out of their way to remain consistant, even if it is only a mirage of consistancy... If that means being intellectually dishonest, oh well, that's that biz...

Show me open receivers down the field then we'll talk about "Check downs" whether they were the right call or not.

From where I'm sitting, looked like he made the right decisions.

17 points in the first half.... maybe that would have been a touchdown to end the first..... 24 points. figure at least 10 points in the second, that's a 34 point game, checking down & doing exactly what we thought he would be capable of doing in this offense.

Anyone thinking he was going to look different are the delusional ones. We talked for the last 2 weeks how our system is designed to move the chains & we get our big plays on the bootleg.

That's exactly what we did when Leinart was in the game.
Without seeing the All-22 viewpoint of Leinart's plays we fans will never know whether all those checkdowns were warranted or not.

And we'll never know how the 2nd half would have unfolded with Leinart under center instead of Yates. We all realize that Kubiak went into "run out the clock and don't get our last QB hurt" mode in the second half.

So you're right, we won. At the end of the day, that's what we all wanted.

Default Re: Mike Lombardi says the Texans are better off without Leinart

I can do math. Watch-

Leinart + Yates - Schaub > Yates + Clemens + Delhome

Yates may be all that and a bag of chips but there's no way in hell losing Leinart makes this team better. He might not be Steve Young 2.0. Who is? He was a quality back up though. What if he just sucked and Kubiak put in Yates? And then Yates blew up and went Tom Brady on everybody...and you still have a quality backup in Leinart. Still have a guy who at the very least is totally better than Kellen Clemens or Jake Freaking Delhomme.....

There needs to be a new smilie of a cross-eyed parrot that just shrieks for attention. We'll all know what it really means.

BTW, I'm not defending Lombardi. But, I do keep it in perspective that he's paid to spew his opinions on things.

Even if Matt was not a Houston Texans, I would say the same thing. It was a classless piece. Just like we tell others here, you don't have to tear down one player to build another up.

We're talking about a guy who has gone through a lot & as far as I can tell, is just trying to get his career back on track. Golden boy from Cali humbles himself, sat behind Orlovsky, come back as a back-up, waiting for an opportunity, the old fashioned way. He could have ran back to daddy Carroll & be "given" a job, but he wanted to make his own way.

Again, Leinart did exactly what many correctly assumed he would be asked to do. However, Lombardi "assesses" Matt is a "check down king" when the team rallied to a 17 point lead on the 3rd ranked defense in the league in less than a half.

Go back & look at my posts, I generally don't get on the media for expressing their opinion. I don't think Lombardi is an "asshat" but this is not your typical, "Texans don't get no respect" reaction & that's all I'm saying.

Lombardi deserves it for this article.

Did anyone see the bit on ESPN where Steve Young said that Kubiak should give him a call?

Holy Ellipses!!!
