I might if he repeatedly got shot

That cheap shot injures just about every player it happens to so how are you going to take this season and count it against him? Somebody go get Brett Favre and line up Jared Allen's helmet with Favre's knee and see what happens. I'll tell you what happens, the "Iron Man" goes down just like Schaub did.

Schaub has had a pretty good season apart from the turnovers and in fact played three outstanding games against Jacksonville, Detroit, and Cincinnati (admittedly not "the gauntlet" but still great games) and played well enough to win two others (Tennessee and Miami which we split).

I think his play has earned him a spot on this team. I just think that there is a chance that he might lose that spot if he can't stay healthy and think you prove or disprove that in 2009. Given that we're talking about two years in a row here I go into 2009 prepared for the worst but hoping for the best.

If he makes it through the 2009 season without a major injury then great. We're rolling. If he doesn't then that's when I say head in a new direction and if you're going to keep Schaub on the team at all past that point he's got to be able to win a spot on the roster all over again.
I never said I didn't think he'd done enough to earn his place right now and I don't see any reason not to have him around in 2010 even if we're getting a rookie warmed up to take over.
I would think that when we start playing the "Well, if he 'x' or if he 'y' then we will 'z'...." game, then that's a sign that he's on the outside looking in.

Matt Schaub can't stay on the field more than a handful of games.

And when he gets back on it, he's right back in the same spot: Unable to overcome a defense that gets in his face.

I can't imagine him being here past next season, in any capacity. He's gonna' get the third season, though, that's for sure.
