I didn't mean to imply that there was any personal agenda involved (I think you are reading and assuming too much in my points). But, I saw a lot of balls thrown into tight coverage yesterday, and Schaub appears to be locking onto receivers. He's certainly not making his reads like he has in the past, so the losing confidence part is purely one that would be subconscious on the part of AJ. It was just last week that AJ said he was getting tired of this crap, so perhaps he's just lost confidence in the team itself to put out a competitive product, and Schaub is just part of that overall attitude.

I've got the highest respect for AJ, and consider him to be a top 5 WR in the NFL. That being said, c'mon, he' dropped two balls in the endzone. He's either regressing, or something is in his head. I do not think that he's losing ability, so you tell me why he's dropping those balls? Just a "bad game"? He's one of the few great talents we have on this team. Meanwhile, our QB has a rating of 25. You tell me what's going on.

yeah, I know, bro'. We fans are in the same boat, and we have to keep it as objective as possible without tearing each other apart. It's just frustrating to see, but we all share that pain.

Honestly, I think Schaub will tear it up next game in Jax (with a Texans win), and everyone will turn around. I say he probably throws for an INT, but gets 2 or 3 TDs and Slaton gets over 100 yards.

Found this in the Faux Sports power rankings and found it .... not so funny.


Quote:
Remember when QB Matt Schaub was lighting up the scoreboard before getting injured toward the end of the '07 season? Where is that guy now? He looks to be a shell of himself, and he's starting to get that shell-shocked look that David Carr used to have in H-town

Its the number 8 I tell ya.

Quote:
COOL STAT: Schaub was sacked just 16 times in 11 starts in '07, but has been dropped eight times in two games this season.

Schaub has looked a lttle .... well a lot uncomfortable in the pocket ... and out this season .... and reminded one of HWWNBM more often than not.


Faux Sports has the Texans ranked 27th above only the Bungles , Al's Raiders , the Sheep .... I mean Rams , the Indian Reservation better known as the Chiefs and Kittens err Lions.

Sage doesn't have the arm Schaub has, but he is accurate and for the most part, mistake-free. Not to mention, quicker feet and quicker release.


Start Sage please!
