Schaub is now as good as gone. Waiting on the other shoe to drop, possibly soon. Good bye and good luck.

Meanwhile, I see Fitz and Keenum duking it out in camp to see who starts anywhere from a couple of games to a half season or so while 1.1 aka Blake Bortles holds a clipboard and learns the system.

Bingo. I think they go with Bortles, as well, and sit him at the beginning of the season and start working him into games by the end.

I agree. At least as far as their draft day plans are. Maybe Bortles, maybe not, but a QB. The proverbial hand has been tipped.

No I just stated the obvious, that he is being brought in to replace Schaub. One of two things are about happen, they have a deal to trade Schaub or he is about to get cut.


Bortles will be the day 1 starter and Fitzpatrick will be the back up...

If stating facts is having an agenda then so be it

Default Re: Ryan Fitzpatrick visiting Texans

Playing devils advocate here, but reality is we have no idea whats about to go down. Fitzpatrick could be signed as a starter to get us through one year before getting a bigger named qb next season. Or we could be sold on a later round qb and need someone like Ryan in the mean time. This IMO means nothing at this point except instead of keeping Schaub we have Fitzpatrick. As for the number 1 pick, this indicates nothing.

Either they go with Bortles or another QB and sit him behind Fitz to start, or they draft Mack/Clowney and roll with Fitz through the year and draft a QB in 2015.

You can say that without saying Schaub was never any good.

I don't think anyone disagreed that Fitzpatrick was being looked at to replace Schaub as a vet backup or even that Schaub should be kept on the team (although some would say that Schaub is a better all-around QB than Fitzpatrick.)

Exactly.

With this signing (and the assumption that Schaub is gone one way or another), we could really be targeting a QB at 2-1 or 3-1 that we could groom while Fitz is starting.

I'm loving this Fitzpatrick signing... He's smart (Harvard grad), mobile, and will be cheaper than Schaub... Not to mention, this now most likely means Schaub will be gone soon! He's a solid backup, and a capable stop-gap.

how many 10 million dollar backups are in the NFL right now? Unless Schaub was willing to take a pay cut, and why should he, he was been a starter for 8 years, Schaub was never going to be the back up.

Now Fitzpatrick will make either a serviceable tackling dummy or a back up to the rookie.

Depends on how you look at it.

QB would have cost us $14.5M in 2014, $7M in 2015 with Schaub (cutting him next year).

Now, QB will cost us $10.5M + Fitz cap hit in 2014, Fitz cap hit in 2015.

So we'll see.
