Still, with the money doled out to Flacco, Romo, & Ryan... I can't fault the Texans for the deal they gave Matt. He can stink it up the rest of the year, compared to those contracts, I'd do it all over again.

I'm not just picking on a noob because he's new, but the tradition continues with the folks new to the board calling out people left and right. You can see it all over the place this week. I will never understand that crap.

EDIT: Also, everytime I see this thread I think they signed him again!!!!

As the Texans get more media attention, either good or bad, more folks will show up here, some of them inevitability a tad trollish.

Chances are this guy was singing Schaub's praises a year ago too; he just wasn't typing it, at least not here & under the same name.

I'm not so sure that Schaub is incapable of putting this crap behind him. We just had 2 QBs in the Superbowl that didn't look half as good as him this time a year ago. I think he was just a little too careless against other teams & was trying too hard when he screwed the pooch against Seattle. It's severely frustrating, but it's not like he just can't move the chains.

We came into this game expecting to get blown out & our D nearly pulled off the win. I'm still proud of the team.

I was actually thinking about this yesterday. I still think Matt's going to hit his career numbers. Over 4000 yards, high 20s, low 30s TDs & somewhere around 15 Ints.

He's already thrown 6, leaving 9 for the rest of the year. Maybe 10

But that's almost an interception a game. Should that be ok? I wouldn't have a problem with that if we were talking high 30s low 40s TDs, but that's not gonna happen.

It wasn't that bad of a deal was it? I read the other day that if the Texans were to release Matt Schaub after the June 1 cuts next off-season, they would only take a $3.5 million cap hit in 2014 and a $7 million cap hit in 2015, along with saving $10 million of base salary in 2014. They would also be off the hook for his 2015 and 2016 base salary which is $12.5 million and $14.5 million.

That's not as bad as I thought it would be. If the Texans' front office decides to go in another direction they will certainly have that option during the upcoming off-season (after June 1). So that would give them plenty of time to make other arrangements in April's draft and even in free agency, if they want to bring in more quarterbacks to look at.

If Matt Schaub is ultimately replaced, it's likely to be after June 1. That being said, I'm still supporting him as a fan and I want to see him succeed and lead this team to the Super Bowl. But I no longer feel optimistic about that happening. He would have to start playing a lot better and making smarter decisions. He's still making rookie mistakes and he's 32 years old, in year number seven with the Texans.

Any prorated bonus ($3.5 m due '14, '15 & '16 = $10.5 m) is moved up to next upcoming season. In other words if cut after 2013, his entire $10.5 million prorated is counted as cap figure for 2014. His misc. bonuses are not counted. His 2014 cap hit was to be $14.5 m. $14.5 - $10.5 = $ 4 m savings to cap for 2014.

I do not expect that to happen. However, if not on roster after 2014, there is a savings of $10 m and by then Team should have better read on Yates and Keenum. The issue with this is the latter are FAs again after 2014.

My hope was to cut/trade MS, trade Yates prior to trade deadline 2014 and Keenum starts with new contract.

Unless he's designated a June 1st cut, then his cap hit will be spread over the 2014 & 2015 season. $14.5/2 = $7.25M which would free up $7.25M towards the cap.


Regardless, when you consider the size of the contracts & guaranteed money paid to comparable QBs in the 2013 off-season, it's a great deal. Romo, Flacco, Ryan.... $100M. None of them better than Schaub. Comparable, Flacco's got a ring & played lights out in the play-offs..... but not a better QB than Schaub.
