Default QB Concerns

As you know Matt is the starting QB for the Texans. I do have a concern though and my worry is there is not any project QB onnn the roster. In fivre, six years from now Matt will be at the end of his career without taking a career ending injury into account before then. Are the Texans just going to trust Dan if Matt goes down for any certain amount time? They shouldn't. Dan may or may not be good but has yet to amount to a whole lot in the NFL thus far. I don't know about you but I would not put all my hope and faith in a guy who has not played well or been on the field thus far in his career. A turn around is not easy in pro sports. I think the Texans should draft a young gun QB for when Matt does retire or just in case something happen to him because you just never know. This is simply food for thought. The Texans do not have great QB depth by any means and it should be addressed.

Are you forgetting Booty and Tyler Sheehan? I think they qualify as project QBs. Not to mention Orlovsky

Tyle and Booty have been with the Texans for not too long so they do count. I am not a huge fan of Orlovsky though.

Tyler Sheehan just signed as an UDFA. He had a tremendous college career though and I tink he is a good project QB. Orlovsky has the skills if he can put it all together.

edit: You have to remember, it takes about 3 years to fully learn Kubes system. And he is an outstanding teacher

Default Re: QB Concerns

I don't how many teams draft a QB to groom for 5 or 6 years to eventually take over as the starter. If a QB is on one team for that long, he's probably a career backup.

5 or 6 years is too far to think ahead in the NFL. Once a QB starts nearing the end, a good NFL team will draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round to groom for a year or two.

Default Re: QB Concerns

I wasn't suprised that no QB was taken this year. Although the regime isn't holding on thier nails, the need to win now. Since before this years draft my thought was they would take someone around the 3rd or 4th in the 2011 draft.

So, basically backup QB is not too much of a matter in the NFL.

the Texans usually react the following year based on needs. this past year they discovered they needed to address RB early this year will depend on Schaubs health, if someone can't back him up the Texans will suffer & react next draft

Billy Volek and Chad Pennington. Anybody else that is not a #1 (and a few of the #1's heh heh heh) you're screwed if they have to start for a huge stretch of the season.

That is of course, just like, my opinion man.

I could see the Texans drafting a QB next year, depending of course on the development of the Qbs already on the roster- Orlovsky, Booty, and Sheehan

Orlovsky going into the 2nd year of a 3 year deal he signed. (3 years 9 mil).
