Default Schaub

Leads the league with 14 passing TD's (Breesus is 2nd with 13), and is second in passing yards with 1810 (Big Ben has 1887).

Just for fun, on his current pace he'd finish the season with: 37 TD's, 4827 yards.

He's certainly struggled at times, but one might say he's playing pretty well . It'd be nice if he could completely eliminate those pics (especially the pick 6's), but when we're asking him to put the offense on his shoulders and throw it 40 times per game it's just unrealistic at the point, IMO, to expect him to play completely error free.

If only we had a franchise QB...

Schaub is our guy, whether you like it or not. He's not the prettiest, but he gets the job done.

Sadly, there are people who still believe this crap. He is not the field general like a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, he's not the tough mfer like a Roethlisberger, and he doesn't have the gun of a Jay Cutler or Brett Favre, but the guy can play quarterback at a very high level.

If the guy can avoid getting injured.

He seems to have developed a better plan for ejecting from dangerous situations. And we see a lot less tucking it and running with it.

And Fat Albert is in the NFC now. That's a good deal for any Texans QB.

What are you talking about? That arm, that size, that mobility! In Al Davis' eyes, he's the best thing to happen to football since the forward pass (and he should know, he was there).

I wasn't a believer in Schaub really. I thought he had potential and all, but he's completely won me over. Schaub has been great this season. He may not be the most accurate passer all of the time, but I'll take his production any day of the week.

I thought about this earlier and this is the first season the Texans have ever had where we've had good QB play. It's been fun to watch and finally have that going for us.

I think if he starts making the plays a la Dreessen open in the end zone at the end of the AZ game and sealing close wins for us his reputation will catch up to his production.

I think its funny when people get upset that he threw a pick. He had 4 TDs. Any QB would kill for a 4:1 TD/Int ratio

Give Schaub a decent interior line and imagine the possibilities. I'm beginning to believe that Meyers has to go. I've not been on the Meyers must go bandwagon but I'm jumping on after today. I thought I kept seeing Meyers block the same defender as whoever is on his side. Like Meyers and White or Studdard gang up on somebody while Studdard or White was left to fend for himself blocking two. Schaub kept rolling out because of a guy pursuing him. Too many times I saw somebody come inside untouched. Schaub is one smart QB who lets the ball sail from him sometimes. I love Matt Schaub and I'm happy he's a Houston Texan. Always have been happy about that.

I'm going to rewatch the game in just a few minutes and I'll keep my eyes on that interior line to confirm my suspicions.

But aren't those are the things we need for our QB to take us to the next level??

Maybe he'll develop the field general thing in time; i.e., improve his decision-making. But the other "gifts", probably not gonna happen. One has to be born with a "gun" and either be blessed with natural toughness or be surrounded by fabulous pass protection (see Brees or P.Manning). Maybe we will work on that pass protection thing.

I don't hate Schaub. He's obviously way better than what we had. And he surely had enough to get us out of the rut we were in with HWWNBN, I just wonder if he has "enough" to get us into saaaay the AFC championship game?

THis is the reason we can't get rid of Kubes, even if we go 8-8 again. I think a big part of why he's doing so well is b/c he and the offense are finally comfortable with the system. As long as he has time, he's as good as any qb in the league.

Default Re: Schaub

He's got decision making issues that need to improve, but I genuinely believe he's more than capable of being the starting QB on a successful NFL team. The other thing that hasn't been mentioned is that he's still got upside, and he's still developing. I think it's easy to forget that between the time backing up Vick, and the games missed due to injury, he still doesn't have the equivalent of two starting seasons. Say what you want, but it's reasonable to expect continued growth from him.
