Matt's stats have also been helped a bunch by guys getting yac. For the past 6 years we've had a top 6 guy in yac. No other team has had that.
Rey,

You make some good points. But this... trying to rewrite history. It's not a fact that Schaub padded his stats by being behind all the time & throwing against soft defenses. There was a time when we couldn't run the ball to sit on a lead & Schaub would throw the ball. We lost a lot of one possession games, in which Schaub built his stats.

Then to say he's Jon Kitna..... I liked Jon Kitna, but Matt is no Jon Kitna.

That's the same version of throw that led to Andre kicking the ball up for a game ending int a couple years ago.
I don't remember what Matt was dealing with at that time. Maybe there was somebody at his feet. Maybe he had to throw it over a LB & try to get it to drop right. Maybe he took a shot to the ribs. I don't know, like I said, I don't remember.

But you're right, Andre should have caught that ball more than Matt should have made a better throw. That's an easy catch..... should have been. Compared to some of the other balls we've seen, some of the other acrobatic catches.

To me, it helps the team if Andre makes that catch. Hurts the psyche if he doesn't... like the Texans are thinking nothing's going to go right today, that catch would feed into that thinking.

I agree, a lot of that stuff needs to get worked out. But it wasn't that long ago that Schaub was not the problem. Denver, Baltimore, Detroit, Jacksonville.... didn't look too bad in Tennessee.

I do think if Matt's going to be the leader he needs to be, he's got to have to make a big time play more often than not. They need to know that he's going to go above & beyond to give them an opportunity to make a play. Throwing the ball away as often & quickly as he does is not going to get it done. If I'm a receiver/TE, 5 seconds after the snap, why should I be running? I know he's already got rid of the ball & if my name isn't Aj, chances are he wasn't going to throw it at me anyway.

so we get a lead in a game and go turtle and we get a lead in the AFC and go turtle, not surprising really. I expect to see him open it back up next weekend now that we've lost HFA haha
I think you can get conservative when your run game is working. Right now it isn't and we can't sit on the ball like we did last year. Our offensive line gets better, I think being conservative with a lead is not much of a problem.

Without an o line, we need to adjust and get more aggressive.

No other thing left except to let players like Newton, Jones, Jean, and Martin progress. Since we stuck on QB, Schaub needs to learn to trust his young receivers and stop forcing everything to AJ.
Any key FA signing isn't happening after we didn't franchised tag Foster. We stuck with what we got. And what we got is still more than most(8 pro-bowlers).

For the next game we have to break the mold...spread the offense out and hit some quick throws to get our QB's confidence up. With our OL struggling everything things needs to be at a faster pace even running plays...quick pitches or quick hits up the gut. Also Kubiak needs to have the offense break the huddle and run up to the LOS on every play. They look too lethargic, get some hustle in their azz.
