Texans hope Schaub turns them around
By PAUL DOMOWITCH

HOUSTON - Smart decisions have been few and far between in the Houston Texans' 5 years of existence, which goes a long way in explaining why they're still in search of their first winning season.

This is a team that used its first pick in the 2002 expansion draft on a damaged-goods offensive tackle named Tony Boselli, whose considerable baggage included a career-threatening shoulder injury and a $9 million salary-cap tag. Boselli, a onetime Pro Bowl left tackle with Jacksonville, never played a down for the Texans.

This is a team that, in 2004, gave free-agent offensive tackle Todd Wade a $10 million signing bonus, only to cut him 2 years later. This is a team that, in 2005, traded second- and third-round picks to the Oakland Raiders for cornerback Phillip Buchanon. Buchanon, like Wade, was a bust who made just six starts in 2005. In 2006, he was with Tampa Bay
Quote:
Before trading for Schaub, Kubiak talked to a number of coaching colleagues about the kid, including Bill Musgrave, who was Schaub's quarterback coach in Atlanta, former Falcons offensive line consultant Alex Gibbs, and Al Groh, Schaub's coach at the University of Virginia.

"The thing that stood out every time I talked to one of them was not so much that he can do this or he can do that," Kubiak said, "but the fact that the kid loved football. He's a winner. He's a leader. That's what you're looking for in this league. Your quarterback's got to be a guy who loves the game. Matt is the first one here and the last one to leave.

He's doing and saying all the right things, so he's off to a good start. But we really won't know until the season starts and his decisions are for the record and analysis.

Not to be picky but you misspelled Schaub on the title.

It's way to early to tell ... besides I did'nt see the ex qb practice so I can't make a comparison .

We'll know pretty quick how he plays in a game ... that I have seen the ex do .

I haven't been there and at the end of last season, I was in the ABC group. But. Honestly. Looking at some of the clips, that ball looks like it's coming out awfully low when Schaub throws it.

Am I looking at the clips wrong? Were the clips filmed at a bad angle?

I took advantage of a couple opportunities on Saturday to let some Texans and other media types know that we've heard enough of the L word already... not sure if it will do any good.

Earl, does the TC keep us from seeing him? I mean the general public? I am not real happy with waiting until the season begins. I'd like to know before pre-season whether or not he's got game.
I thought Schaub and Sage were both good . How does this translate into a game ... beats me .

What I did notice was their throwing to everybody but AJ . You can tell that they want more than one reciever .

I'm cool with 2 QBs and the WR they can hit based on our postion and scoring . Especially if we are in a deficit. But, I'd just like to know if the price tag on Shaub is still attached. I'll take my chances with Sage based on what I saw him do last year.
I would call Atlanta and ask if they are willing to give us a 1st and 2nd round pick to have him back ... nothing against Schaub ... but I'd take the picks because he's not Elway .

Sounds stupid, maybe, but I think it could work, especailly if we got the picks back. Brooks has always needed a good QB coach. Isn't that what Kubes is supposed to be?
I think Schaub is at a slight disadvantage because he's new , has more pressure , and is learning Kubiak and his system .

I did'nt see Schaub throw long , so I can't tell arm strength . I'll be there Thursday , so we'll see .

I'm not saying he's aiming low. I'm saying he's releasing low. That was the whole problem with getting balls knocked down the past few years.

If you can take a look at the Day 4 Highlights (not sure if you've got the bandwidth), it looks like Schaub releases the ball very low, like HWWNBN. I had heard he released the ball high and stood tall in the pocket. There are a couple of throws shown in that tape where his release looks very "shot-puttish" (including a pick).
