Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

Drew Bress is older and got 60 million guaranteed over 5 years. Schaub got 25 million over 4. for those who think that schuab is half the QB that Bress is, the money follows.

Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

Rick Smith and the gang have done well with contracts to get the benefit of the doubt that this is a good contract extension. I can't think of many other quarterbacks that are going to be free next year that can take his spot through trade or FA.

From the homer fan like myself it may seem that Schaub's contract is a contract for the "injury free matt schaub" instead of the "injury prone Matt Schaub." But like I said Rick gets the benefit of the doubt at the end of the day.

So with his contract extension who isn't going to get resigned next year? Smith? Who else?

Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

Well, as of yesterday, if you'd asked me who would agree to a last minute (in terms of the beginning of the season) extension, I would have said Barwin in a heartbeat.

Shows what I know, but I'm extremely happy to see that Matt has re-upped and is property of the Texans for a little longer.

Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

As concerns the 2012 cap, Schaub was going to count $10,950,000 ([base salary] 7,150,000 , [signing bonus] 750,000, ["other" bonuses] 3,050,000)

Wonder what the implications of the hit will now be.

Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

I guess it is nice to get some business out of the way. Schaub is better than what a lot of teams have to play with and better than what we could probably get in FA or the draft, drafting at 32.

So you're one of those guys huh? Yeah, a 102 QB rating and 266 yards passing is definitely worthy of a QB getting yanked in favor of a QB whose last meaningful action was just chunking the ball up for grabs.

Look at some of those contracts you linked, almost every one of those QBs are making outrageous sums in their final years, and it's unlikely they will get it.

I'm willing to bet about 10 million of it is tied up in incentives based on things like starting 14-16 regular season games, 2 million bonus for winning the Super Bowl, 1 million bonus for winning AFC, etc etc. QB contracts are always inflated by stuff like that.
I'd love to know what his anual salary is for the first three years.

25 guaranteed over 4 years is just a little more than $6M/yr, his salary for this year may be as low as $2M/yr & like you said, incentives based on games played, play-off placing, pro-bowl, AFC Championship game appearance... etc, etc...

He may only make $8M this year, which is about right for him.

If he keeps playing like today he'll be worth every penny. Great play from Schaub today coming off injury with an OL that wasn't doing him any favors.

Yeah it's 6 a year average, but the guaranteed money will be paid out by the end of year 2. I'm guessing he got about 8 million signing bonus, and a salary structure of 8, 10, 12, 15 per, with the rest being an assortment of bonuses. I'm expecting it to be a cap friendly deal too, Matt seems like the kind of guy who would do that.

I can't explain it, but schaubs throws actually look better.

His throws aren't as airy as they used to be. I dint feel like I'm watching the ball travel in slow motion to it's target.

Default Re: Matt Schaub Signs Extension

How close is Schaub to being 100 % with that foot? I recall a 3rd and goal when he seemed to have an easy daylight (opening) into the end zone had he ran it in but he sort of stayed too long in the pocket, as if running wasn't an option, and forced an incomplete pass to the corner of the end zone. Not that Schaub was ever a runner but I've seen him make plays with his feet (running Touchdowns), especially against Miami, in the past on similar type of plays.

We ended up getting a Field Goal when we should have gotten 6 points. It was interesting to hear the crowd booing every time we settled for a field goal. At least on that particular play, I would have been on board with the disappointment. A good thing the defense forced 4 turnovers and scored 24 points off those turnovers.

We better play much better against the Patriots, Packers, Ravens, Bears and whatever good teams we play this season. If we play like today against the good teams I'll be awfully worried. That's the only down part of playing the Dolphins and Jaguars -- two bad teams the first two weeks. You don't need to play your best to win but I'll take the 2-0 record.

We'll be tested Week 3 at Denver. I can't wait for that one.
