Good grief. So the only reason the Texans haven't done this is because Schaub's arm isn't strong enough. It's even his fault for the years he wasn't here.

I'll say if the Texans have Schaub at QB, a 2000 yard rusher every year, and a one of the top 3 defenses in the league every year - approximately 2015. Only that will include more than 2 Super Bowl wins.

You forgot to mention that Michael Jordan sucks because Bill Russell won 11 championships in 13 years.

Wait, hold it, stop the presses. Have we actually made it through 10 posts in which the words Elway, Manning and Schaub have appeared in the same post and some clown hasn't come along and said Schaub is no Elway? Holy crap!

OK carry on.

Oops, back on topic. Of course having a stronger arm is always nice, as are better judgment, better speed, better pocket presence, better accuracy, etc. I think Schaub's combination is good enough to be very good and possibly run a number of years as top 5 in many categories. That is good enough for the Texans to succeed as a team.

Then we take a look at the WHOLE package and not just Schaub. Last I checked, we have to field a defense for about 1/2 the time on the field. A QB alone cannot make this team amazing.

It's is second year for us and his is 100x better than Carr! Matt has proven himself. He just needs to work on those fumbles. His interceptions have been cut down since our running game has improved.

Hmmmm...difference is that Carr sucks and Schaub doesn't. He doesn't operate in a vacuum - there are folks around him that sink or swim on their own. We can have a great offense, but if our defense gives up the booty, that's NOT on the offense or the QB.

And comparing us to Dallas is not apt since that team is severely dysfunctional in ways we could only hope to be after a weekend meth and hooker binge.

Your thought process both bewilders and amuses me, though.

His INT's have gone down since facing two division winners with a combined record of 25 and 7 with 95 sacks and 40 INT's.

Pennington has been one of the best in the league for the past decade.... when healthy.

But lets be real, despite the QB rating (which overly rewards accuracy and underrates throwing downfield) the Miami offense was only 21st in points scored. I'm not dropping an 'elite' label on a QB that leads an offense that poor.

We have much bigger holes on this team than QB. I think we can win with Schaub and getting a better defense and better at executing in the red zone will help us realize this goal. Its good to finally see noone calling for Rosencopter to be the starting QB at least.

I say next season. With any amount of luck in the post season decision making regarding coaching, draft choices and FA moves, he will. He'll have to have a VY-esque meltdown not to. I don't see that happening.

This offense is rated what? 3rd? Of course he's set in H-Town for at LEAST the next 2 years. Why are we talking about when this guy will be fired? I know as Texans fans we're usually forced to play the cynical card to keep being hurt when our optimism gets thrown into our faces but this team just won 4 of their last 5 games. This offense needs one thing in my opinion for next year and that's a change of pace back to compliment Slaton. That's it. Don't even LOOK at the rest of the offense. Put the effort into the D.

Texan's offense does its fair share of giving up the booty in turnovers. Hell I think the Texan's lost 3 games this year based off turnovers alone
