Default Texans trying to get Matt Schaub?

From the Chron's Texans FanBlog.

Quote:
***** ESPN and CNNSI both report today that the Atlanta Falcons are still quietly shopping QB Matt Shaub. Reports have noted that the Falcons GM has been in close contact recently with the Texans and GM Rick Smith.

Should the TEXANS try and do everything they can to grab Matt Shaub away from the Falcons?
I know it's a pretty big reach. Especially since there is nothing about this on the CNNSI or ESPN sites and he doesn't give any quotes from anywhere else.

Wow! Depends on what the Falcons are asking for him. Still think he'd cost us too much in terms of draft picks.

Somebody please explain to me why Matt Schaub is so coveted by most teams as a highly regarded potential starting QB. I have never seen him play and don't remember his college career.

I've heard that they want a 1st and 3rd conditional. I doubt that they'll get it.

I've seen him play once last year against the Eagles (the last game of the season.) Vick got knocked out of the game for a series, then the ball suddenly started moving. It was like night and day. I made sure to keep an eye on him because I'd heard so much about him on this board.

Matt Schuab had a great college career. I got to watch him play alot (ACC fan here). You would have probobly heard more about him except he played in the same conference at the same time at Philip Rivers, and all eyes were on Rivers. They actually have similar attributes, and i think Matt would be just as good as philip(and im a NC state fan). If we got him that would be outstanding IMO.

I'm not that shocked they are pursuing him (if they are). I believe this staff is going to leave no stone unturned in its quest to get a legit QB to play for this team. I think the compensation will likely be too high, but I am sure they have talked about it.

It's common when blogging to include a link to a story that's being referenced (just as it is here on our message board). I know Texans Chick did when she was the blogger at the Chronic. Not a real good job by this fan blogger.

BTW, here's what Bucky Brooks of SI.com had to say regarding Schaub:

Quote:
Top 10 Overrated Free Agents




Matt Schaub, Atlanta Falcons, QB: This former third-round pick has created quite buzz around the league as a potential starter, but when you examine his career production you wonder what all of the fuss is about. He has dazzled during the preseason, but in regular-season action he is only 52-percent passer with six touchdowns and six interceptions. Despite an impressive performance filling in for Michael Vick during the season-ending loss vs. the Eagles' back ups, he hasn't done enough to justify his lofty status on the free-agent market. Remember, Rob Johnson and A.J. Feeley were once viewed in the same light as potential starters.

I think he is coveted so much because it is next to impossible to find a quarterback under 30 that has good potential in this league. There are just a lot of bad qb's floating around the nfl at this point in time.

OVERVIEW
Classic pocket passer who is the proud owner of every major passing record in school history … A Heisman Trophy candidate in 2003, he bounced back from early-season shoulder problems to lead the team to its second successive Continental Tire Bowl victory … The 2002 Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year completed 66.98 percent of his passes during his career, the second-best mark in NCAA Division I-A history, topped only by Tim Couch of Kentucky (67.15 percent, 1996-98) … His 716 pass completions rank fifth in conference annals … Holds the school career records for pass completions, attempts (1,069), passing yards (7,502), total offense yards (7,560), touchdown passes (56), most 300-yard passing games (eight) and most 200-yard passing games (20).
ANALYSIS
Positives: Has a tall frame with adequate muscle thickness, a big bubble with thick thighs and long, thick calves … Shows adequate quickness in his retreat from under center, showing balance standing tall in the pocket … Throws with an over-the-top motion and shows good quickness through his delivery … More effective throwing the short- and medium-route tosses … Good decision maker who will throw the ball away rather than force it into traffic … Has adequate poise in the pocket and will sacrifice his body and take the hit when his receivers are covered … Good leader and hard worker who is well-respected by his teammates … Shows touch and accuracy on his short balls and the ability to stick the pigskin into tight areas (knows when to fire the ball and put touch on passes) … Has a good feel for pressure, knowing when to step up or roll out of the pocket … Is improving his timing and anticipation skills to make sure he hits his receivers in their stride … Takes control in the huddle and will speak up when he needs to … Shows quick hands and catches the ball well while serving as the holder for extra points and field goals.

Negatives: Has good quickness, but will get "happy feet" at times and will tuck the ball away too early (will stand tall in the pocket, but needs to show more patience when running as ball security {fumbles} have been a problem) … Shows marginal arm strength in his long-ball attempts, lacking the ideal zip needed on his passes to be effective with the deep throws … Has an effective overhead delivery, but seems to drop to a three-quarter when pressured, causing him to rush the ball at times … His long tosses tend to sail on him the farther he has to throw it … Has improved his ability to scan the field, but will revert to locking on to his primary target, failing to locate other receivers (will also check down too early) … Will lose accuracy on his throws when forced to pass on the move … Despite his size, he has limited weight-room numbers (225-pound bench press).

Why? The same reason Sage is coveted on this message board. A few good starts/appearances & the back up QB is always the fans favorite player, that is unless your the colts or patriots................. or Saints.

Default Re: Texans trying to get Matt Schaub?

ositives: Matt Schaub has terrific size, strength, and a decent arm. He is an accurate passer (especially underneath) has a good release, and leads his receivers well. He has the ability to find the second receiver and he reads defenses well.
Negatives: His footwork is inconsistent, but can be polished with good coaching. He lacks speed and mobility, and will not buy much time with his feet. He does not throw well on the run. Strictly a pocket passer.
http://football.about.com/cs/playerp...mattschaub.htm
************************************
I dunno, but the Texans would have to move away from the WCO if they picked up this QB - "He lacks speed and mobility, and will not buy much time with his feet. He does not throw well on the run. Strictly a pocket passer."
Kinda shoots this rumor full of holes.
