I'll third this post. Without looking back at the list, giving up last second TD's to the Jags and Jets cannot by put on the QB. Shift those over and you have 10-4.

Default Re: Schaub #2 all time, passing yards in a game?

I'm not sure what it would take to satisfy some fans. With a mediocre defense and no running game (2009), he threw for almost 5000 yards and a 9-7 record...

With a good defense, his record is 16-4 and 13-1 in his last 14 games... not to mention a QB rating of 100.

There's plenty to love about the guy. Maybe we could stop blaming him for not being Tom Brady. Maybe?

Texans have been vindicated by extending Schuab this past off season. IMO

For me, I've said it before, I want him to play like he did in 2009. Not that I need him to throw for 5000 yards, or take any unnecessary chances. But he played at another level.... I would say a Tom Brady/Drew Brees/Peyton Manning level. We won a lot of games in 2009, because of him. I'd love to win games today because of Matt & Arian & Andre & the defense, not just on whichever one happens to be hot that day. They should all be "hot" at the same time as often as possible. That's when we are at our best.

Now we got a defense & a run game, he doesn't have to be that guy. I get it. But we're a better team when he is that guy.

But I wish Gary had stayed with the passing game after the first drive. It was working and he had a hot QB. If he would've done this then the game probably wouldn't have been as close.

Choosing to impose Garys will on the Jags for two and a half qtrs almost cost the Texans this game. But Schaub and the defensive stand bailed the Texans out in OT. IMHO

I like him better this way. You don't need to be a gunslinger when you have a good defense. Just play solid percentage football and win.

Agreed,

Shaub has the ability to be an elite QB. Gary just needs to take the chains off of him.

Haha, as much as I would love for Kubiak to make GP happy by scoring 21 points in the first qtr, I think Kubiak always script his plays early in the game to gauge the tendency of the defense. It's been working, why change it?

I'm pretty sure if you ask Schaub, he likes it the way it is.

It's better to work both the running game and the passing game.

The running game, especially the stretch play, makes the d-line work hard because they have to run left and then right. And then they have to worry about the cut block.

The more tired they get, the worse they will perform late in the game.
Even if the running game doesn't work well, those guys will be huffing and puffing, which in turn render them less effective in their pass rush.

We're the best team when he doesn't have to be that guy, and that in my opinion is what we should strive for.

It's clear that the philosophy of Kubiak and this coaching staff is to play tough defense, run the ball down their throat, gain control of the game, and try to play from ahead - controlling the ball as much as you can.

Asking Matt to be Super Man flies in the face of that philosophy, and with Matt sporting a 13-1 record under that philosophy, I say wait until you need him to be that guy before you ask him to be that guy.

Why blame Gary? I think it's on Matt. Balls in his hands on 3rd & long. Don't take what the defense gives you, take it.

That don't mean to force anything. That doesn't mean to take any chances. That means do what he did Sunday when we were down by 14. Make a play, move the chains.

Was he super man Sunday? Was he Super Man in 2009? I don't think so, he just refused to lose, on every play. He played with a sense of urgency, we need that 1st down, we need that touchdown.... we need to move the chains.

I just want him to play with that urgency all the time. Play at that level, all the time.

We ran the ball Sunday. We never abandoned the run. We had Schaub playing at a high level, we had Andre playing at a high level, we had Arian playing at a high level, OD, Graham.. high level. Leaving everything on the field. Doing what it takes to move the chains, to stay on the field, to beat the defense.

We threw the ball 55 times on Sunday! In 2009, we had no running game. We have one now. Balanced is good. We can beat Chicago in a rainstorm. Or, we can score 43 points when our defense has an off day by throwing the ball all over the yard. Realize the more times Schaub drops back, the more hits he will take.... not to mention that play action pass is our bread and butter, and it is much more effective when the defense believes we will run it.

I think I understand where the Fid comes from.
Them offense with Peyton and Brady (and even Rodgers) rely more on the spread.

It runs through the QB and practice makes perfect.

But look at the leader board; which team has the best winning record with a certain QB at the helm the last two years?

One can even count back the year for Peyton.

I'm not saying we have to throw it 50 times, or be anything other than the balanced team that we are. I'm saying on 3rd & whatever, I want to see Matt play like he did Sunday, with the attitude that we have to pick up that third down, I want him to start every drive thinking we will score & anything less is failure.

Just like he did Sunday, doesn't mean that he has to force anything or be any less cautious. It just means not settling or putting the ball in the defense's hands.

I want him to play with that, "We're down by 14" attitude all the time.

To me, it's just like the "effort" some of us don't see in Mario Williams on every down. I'm not seeing that effort from Schaub. I don't want him to play outside himself, I just want him to play like he did Sunday, like he did in 2009. It was another level type of playing, it was a competitive, winning, leader-type level.

Arian is going to give us 110% every play. So is Duane Brown. I've said it before & I'll say it again, to me, Matt gives up on plays too early. If we weren't down by 14, he'd have settled for a field goal, or a punt.

We don't run the score up on other teams, I think, because of that. Not because Gary gets conservative. But because our field general says, "Ah... let the night crew handle it."

I would think it's Kubiak's call.

Minimize the risk of turnover and we can win every game.

That's why we had to let Jacoby and Holliday go even though they are both electric returners.
