You are correct DB.

I was referring to something specific, it's called winning. Which has been hard to expect from the Texans.

Nevertheless, Sunday's are meaning again regardless of the outcome, seeing the Texans play is enough. The rest is gravey. Another perspective I have as well...

The Schaub deal is a bigtime move. It may turn out to blow up in our faces if Schaub doesn't perform, but as of right now, I'm ecstatic with it.

Given the options available, it was the best possible move. We gave up the equivalent of a mid-first rounder to get him. If he turns out to be a quality starting QB (not even an elite one), then it was still a good move. If he busts, then we're back at square one with no QB and poorer at other positions because we gave up two second round choices in back to back years. In my book, second round choices should be contributing starters. This is especially true when they are early (which almost all of ours are).

The real mistake for our franchise post Cass and Capers was the sticking with Carr one year too long. The Texans paid him the bonus, kept him around and passed on the position in a year when there were three viable franchise QB's in the draft and we had the first pick. That was a screw-up of biblical proportions and so we had to pay the piper with the picks to get Schaub.

Schaub may turn out better than all three of the VY, Leinart, & Cutler trio. Mario may turn into a game-changing force. If those two things happen, we come out smelling like a rose and will be legitimate contenders in about three or four years. If not, it is three or four more years of futility and we'll be staring directly at another start from scratch build processes.

I for one am hoping for the trade and the drafting of Williams to turn out golden, but also understand the sober realism that Kubes and Smith bet their careers with the Texans on that pick and this trade. I hope they come up Sevens!

Go Texans
