If Morey was gm of the texans he sure as hell would be smart enough to know that schaub is not the answer and would be looking for ways to replace him.
If Morey was texans gm he'd have signed Peyton when we had a chance to and he would have traded Schaub.

Morey isn't afraid to rock the boat.

28 teams dont have one elite QB much less a second standing there waiting to replace the guy in front of them. Those teams have to win by other means and this team was built to win with average QB play with its balanced offense and very good defense.


Sadly for our Texans , Schaub went from middle of the pack to absolutely horrible right before our eyes , from 11th in QBR alltime to damaged goods.


I can only think of two times where teams went from one great QB to another instantly Favre to Rogers & Montana to Young. You might throw Manning to Luck in the conversation but that wasn't a seamless transition , they had to go 2-14 to get Luck.

At this point , I'd like to see a change under center too .... But not because I believe one of those backups are better , but because of the potential (however slim) that one might be.
(bolded) Kinda' reminds me of the drop off we saw in Donovan McNabb. Toward the end, he was a competent enough QB, but almost overnight went south and looked like a shell of his former self. He could not make a play to save his life, and it's obvious with Schaub setting such a dubious pathetic record that his best years are way behind him.

Kubiak's faith in Schaub is blinding his objectivity.

Look ... There's just not enough evidence that warrants a change of Matt , Gary , Bullock , or anybody yet . It takes about 8 pick 6's as evidence that teams know what we're doing and Matt tips it off . Now go buy your battle red gear , $8 dollar beers , and by golly cheer the boys on .

I didn't think we'd ever sign Peyton. Whether it was a money thing, or a Boselli thing.

But I think it's curious that they went gaga over Ed Reed, but wanted nothing to do with Peyton Manning.

"Ed Reed is going to help us in January."

Like Peyton Manning wouldn't.

This team is very good at the skill positions outside of QB and has a very good defense.


How the hell does the opposing QB go 6/15 113 yards (293yards total offense) and you give up 34 ? Oh , Turnovers .....
They certainly were not expected to suck. They were expected to be competitive and make Les Alexander money. At times they were a fringe playoff team resulting in consecutive middle round picks that did nothing to upgrade the teams needs.

My point isn't about talent. My point is both teams were/are mediocre and were stuck/are stuck on the mediocrity treadmill without change. For the Rockets that change was trading for Harden which eventually resulted in Dwight Howard joining the team. For the Texans this change needs to be an on-the-field regime change where one or both of Kubiak and Schaub are replaced.

Why Smith...I actually think he has put togather a pretty good scouting/draft team. He has also picked up some substantual free agents and walk ons. I have been a Kubiak supporter from day 1 until last week. I did not know he would not let Matt change a play at the line after he looks over the defense..That is plain stupid. He is the one who calls all of those screen passes and plays that are always 1-2 yards short on 3rd down.. BS

Well, I think the difference is that the rockets exceeded expectations. Those teams always fought hard.


The texans otoh, are well below expectations. There are tons of other differences.

I get what you are saying, I just don't agree with it. Their paths have been very different.

All in know is I feel like the parrot in that Ron White joke where in the end the parrot and the ship's magician are adrift at sea among the flotsam and the parrot says ............

"braaaaach [my parrot noise..lol].........I give up, where's the damned ship."
