Default Schaub on NFLN ; Schefter commenting on most updated Carr info

The following is a 95% accurate transcript I created over the past 20 minutes after watching the NFLN show with Matt Schaub on the Texans Cam. I typed it in shorthand as it was being broadcasted, then went back and expanded on it while my memory was fresh.

Most interesting thing to notice (at the very very end of this post) is Schefter came on after Schaub and ran down the whole Carr-Trent Green-Dolphins-Oakland thing.

Here's the interview as best I can portray it. You can probably go to NFL.com and see it yourself if you hate reading

----------------------

Eisen: How did this deal come about?

Schaub: It happened quickly, earlier this week. They talked to the Falcons and were able to work out a deal. I was excited to get to make it happen. (Mentioned the golf game with Kubiak again. Said they didn't keep score on front nine, but then kept score on back nine)

Next question: Were you surprised the Texans were interested, and was there any history there to go on?

Schaub: No, not really. There are other coaches I've worked with that spoke with Kubiak, people he's worked with and has crossed paths with. It was a natural fit for me. I've had 3 years in Atlanta and 3 yrs in Virginia playing in this type of system (WCO)...I am very acclimated to it, and it's just a natural fit.

Next question: The Texans passed up Vince Young, do you feel more pressure now?

Schaub: No I don't. No more than I have already put on myself. There's no more added burden than what I have put on myself. We're focused on winning a championship. And it's not just me... it's me, it's the team, the coaches, the whole organization is trying to make it happen.

Next question: What about your time behind Michael Vick?

Schaub: It was very valuable to be behind him, learning an NFL system , how it works, learning behind one of the most noticed athletes in the world. It was very valuable to see what he goes through, what I can expect when I get my opportunity.

Next question: Carr was the most sacked, did it worry you when you began the process of working on this deal?

Schaub: No. Coach Kubiak told me he's going to protect the QB. This team had some injuries up front last year, but looks healthy now, and there's a lot of talent up there and we're gonna make this thing work. But we're all going to be a cohesive group and get this thing done.

END OF INTERVIEW.

Eisen comes back later in the show, asks Schefter about David Carr's potential landing spots. This is what Schefter had to say:

Schefter: (To Rich Eisen) Rich, I think David ends up on the street. The Texans have been unable to find takers. Once he's released, which most people think he will be released, the teams most interested are (in this order, by the way) Minnesota, the Dolphins, the Raiders. If the Dolphins get Trent Green, which it appears that Trent is way out in front as the guy the Dolphins are most interested in, then the Raiders might look at Culpepper because the Dolphins would then have the same situation with Culpepper as Houston has with David--They will need to find a place for Culpepper and Oakland might be looking at him. Thinking about it, the Vikes might be the most logical place for David Carr.

I had to chuckle when he talked about playing golf with Kubiak.

I think I've heard him say it about 12 times now.

I think the guy likes to play golf, eh?

This has been a problem since day one... I mean really day one when you count Boselli.

Now thats what I like to hear Imgoing to say at 1st I did not like this deal cause we gave up not 1 but 2 2nd round picks but he seems to have his head on his sholders so he should fit in just great and hope he helps a win the big one soon

I'm not opposed to that. Nothing wrong w/having 3 QBs that can step in w/the potential to perform well should anyone go down.

I wanted to just innocently "leave it out" because it's a statement that's swimming in half-truths and ambiguity.

Was realllllllly hard to type that. I actually paused and just sat here staring at my keyboard for about 20 seconds pondering if I could leave it out or not. But my educational background in journalism got the best of me...had to type as much of what he said as I could remember, regardless of my personal opinions on it.

Schaub probably has told Kubiak that we provide all the protection he needs. Probably told Kubiak that he can get the ball where it needs to be, etc., under the current protection that he's seen from the Texans o line.

I sense that Kubiak and Schaub told each other want they each wanted to hear. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Hulk75:

Good to hear from you.

I really figured you might not be back after the past few days' activities...that's not a slam against your character or anything, I just figured you and the family would be forced by David's agent to go into lockdown until things settle down a little. I say that because Rick Smith made it sound that a trade for David was virtually imminent and already down in principle.

Good to hear from you.

I can't wait till we all stop blaming the line for everything. We do have a lot of talent up there. 4 first day picks and some veteran back ups now. We need a Center and we are done.

The Texans have no bargaining power, that went out the window with the announcement that Schuab is the starting QB. Sometimes the Texans just don't know how to play the card game. Now it looks like they'll get nothing for Carr, as they usually do with players they want to get rid of.

I second that. They are not the best in the league but far from the worst. It is a work in progress but will get there.
