Default Re: Trade Schaub, and draft picks for BIG Ben?

A few years ago I'd have done this but then the Steelers wouldn't have parted with him back then (as if they would today for that matter) but now we've missed our window and by the time we were ready to put the pedal down he'd be completely out of gas.

Actually what the Texans should have done back in 2002 was ignore Carr and make the smart pick with Julius Peppers. Just rolled with Tony Banks as our starter in 2002 and 2003. Of course take Andre Johnson in 2003. That's a no-brainer. Finally, after spending two years getting your offensive line setup the way you want it you pick Ben Roethlisberger with the 10th pick in the 2004 draft instead of Dunta Robinson. This means of course that you roll one more season with Glenn & Coleman as your corners but I don't think that's such a bad idea in hindsight.

The Texans would have looked very different if so many times in the past they'd just made the obvious move that was staring them in the face.

If we're going to play this game I would take Aaron Rodgers in 2005 instead of Travis Johnson.

Default Re: Trade Schaub, and draft picks for BIG Ben?

6 weeks ago when everyone was blaming Schaub for this team's problems I said the problem was discipline and that changing QBs wouldn't make a difference. I stand by that. Trading draft picks away for an old big Ben would create more problems than it would solve.

Our QB has not thrown an interception in 3 weeks and we still have 3 losses. The problems with this team are a lot bigger than the guy under center. It is time to look for a new coach.

True. We're in cap hell if Schaub, Joseph, & Manning are allowed to play out their contracts. We can cut them & free up something close to $20M after Schaub's $3.5M. Subtract another $2.6M (I think) for Reed & we're still "okay" cap wise.

Wished we could trade Schaub and get Dunta, DeMeco, Conner, Glover, and Trindon back with the team.

Not bothering to read entire thread, but everyone knows that no team would trade for Schaub's contract, right?

Yes I'm sure that would be a huge selling point in a job interview. Maybe he could bring in David Carr if the Schaub trade falls through.

He might become the QB coach for the Redskins and tell Shanny that RG3 is to mobile . He may tell him he has just the guy to get this system cooking .

There is a big difference between the team Schaub quarterbacked and the one Keenum has had for the last three weeks ...

Schaub had OD , Foster and a healthy Tate .... Keenum has had none of the above.

Keenum gets to run out there with Garrett Graham , Ryan Griffin , Dennis Johnson & Deji Karim ....

And don't forget Schaub was afforded a defense that had Cushing lining up inside .... Keenum gets a defense anchored by .... Jeff Tarpinian.


Keenum's team has lost three games by a combined 7 points .... In Schaubs four losses they were outscored by .... 80 , that's an average of 20 points.

The Steelers organization wouldn't give up Big Ben for Schaub unless Houston gave up multiple picks along with him. Given the product Schaub has put out there these past few seasons maybe not even with that.

Case keenum hasn't even won a game, and yet he is the "answer?" Doesn't make sense to me. His football iq isnt their. We need to go after a quarterback next season. Be it Big Ben or a rookie. Let Andre and Hopkins work with whoever they bring in for try outs. To see if they have that chemistry. Case can't even read a frickin blitz!!!
