I wouldn't doubt that his foot is an issue, but he had a typical Matt Schaub day against the Patriots, then he went on to stink it up in the Pro Bowl. If his foot is giving him the problems you're suggesting, I don't think he does those. I also think the Texans would have addressed the QB position differently this past offseason.
It is quite a bit easier to dink and dunk to get numbers with foot issues. As to the question you pose, how many WTF decisions have you not lived through with this organization? They have a long history of making decisions especially on injured players, solely based on hope and prayer. I guess a "genetic" inbreeding characteristic related to the man that chose to put RGIII back into a game where it was obvious to everyone that he would have better benefited by a wheelchair........then bring him back too early this season without completing adequate rehab when it is obvious to everyone that he looks like a person that just got out of his wheelchair. As they say, history is bound to repeat itself, if you do not make an effort to learn from it.........and the Texans tend to be slow learners. His foot is an issue......a big issue that effect all aspects of his play. His foot has had its rest during the offseason and preseason for the most part. Now that he's back to full-time, expect it to respond poorly to its increasing stresses......most likely more quickly and more noticeably than last season. Let's just agree to keep watching.

4,000 yards isnt what it used to be.

And I'd much rather have us take some shots downfield from time to time. All this take what the defense gives us junk is getting old. GOOD offenses take what they want.

And as the pick sixes are proving all these passes close to the line of scrimmage are at best low risk low reward and at worst high risk low reward.

I'm not saying air it out every series. But how about at least once or twice a game to give the defense something to think about? As it is defenses only have to defend about 15 yards of depth against us.

In & of itself... no it's not what it used to be. But the list of QBs who've thrown for 4000 yards in 3 of the last 4 years is still a short list & good company for the QB of our team. If he stays healthy, he'll do it again & that list of QBs who've thrown for 4000 yards in 4 of the last 5 years will get even shorter.

I agree. I also don't think we should wait until we're down three scores to do it. It should be part of the game plan to set the tone for the game, make sure the defense knows to expect it.

From what I'm seeing.... it's coming.

Wait, you're basing your assertion that Schaub looks better than ever and the Texans are going to the Super Bowl on 4 passes against a prevent defense at the end of a half? You must of had to really reach for those cherries.

Schaub's presser right after the surgery (or maybe just before)




Schaub discussing his surgery options with the crack Texans' medical staff...



Schaub offering words of encouragement to T.J. Yates during his time on IR.
