The only CONTACT practice on a Monday football week usually occurs on Thursday, not Wednesday as typical. Then again you don't know how much Reed would be "let loose" even during that practice.

This is true and when Matt plays in a fashion that gets him consistently compared to Dan Marino then he'll have a case for being a franchise QB. Without that level of performance though he will probably need to get a ring to be able to make that case.

So your point is we currently have no franchise QB?

LOL.

I think we need to agree on the definition of a franchise QB.

IMO, a franchised QB is one that can help your team contend for the play-offs consistently, provided that the other units also do their job.
For example, look at Peyton's play-off record; it's 9-11.
Manning has a losing play-off record, but nobody would say that he's not a franchise QB.

We know that the Texans could have won many more games if only the D and the special team had played up to contenders level.

I'm okay with him missing these first two games, honestly. I have a feeling he'll be back against Baltimore.

Yep, he ain't gonna miss that game and he should be closer to 'game shape' by then as well.

Gonna pick him some Flacco.

I understand that, but its still more relevant to the inital topic of the thread rather than some of the other discussion. Thats why I made that comment.

That I would agree with. Saying Schaub isn't our/a Franchise QB is ludicrous.

No one would argue he's a Super Bowl Winning QB. That much is a fact.

imo, you've got a franchise QB if you're confident he gives you a chance to win any game.

Silly definition I know, because it's very subjective & it really doesn't matter what we think, Kubiak & Smith believe Matt gives them the best option to win on Sunday (or Monday, or Thursday, you know what I mean).

Let's say Kyle Orton is your QB. He gives your team the best option to win on gameday. Looking at his last season as the starter, most people would look at him & his team & figure they'd probably win 9 games, maybe 10. Kick him to the curb, install Peyton Manning & there's no doubt the Broncos will win 10 games & win the division.

The Patriots lost Hernandez, Welker, Woodhead, Gronk just had back surgery..... still can't figure out that secondary thing... issues on the OL, but they've got Brady, they're in a weak division, most likely win 10 games... blah blah blah.

If we lose our young RG, it's probably over for the Texans. Matt Schaub or no.

I agree... that it's a silly definition.

You're describing a HOF QB and a multi-SB winning QB there!

Regarding Brook, we still have Ben Jones, who should improve in his second year (even though it's not a given, just a percentage thing.)
