We need the so-called "experts" at PFT.com (Florio, etc.) to each pick the Steelers. Then it's in the bag.

I don't think he's allowed to audible out of plays. The smartest man on the field is Kubiak, DON'T QUESTION IT.

I rarely see him audible..... i think he says that he gets a number of plays to choose from before he gets to the huddle....but rarely do I see him change the play once he calls it in the huddle......maybe I am wrong on that.....

It seems like Warren Sapp has some love for the Texans. He always seems to give us support. Maybe its cause of andre though

I think you are correct. He hardly ever audibles. I think someone posted a while ago that he is not allowed to audible?

Schaub can audible.

Once upon a time, it was said that he could only audible into ONE type of play (meaning he did not have "full control" but rather was allowed to go to a certain play that was predetermined if he desired to do so pre-snap).

More recently, some people on here have said that there is a way that Schaub can audible that none of us would be able to easily pick up upon. Whereas Mr. Peyton Manning would wave his hands and stomp a foot, etc., and be very elaborate with his audible announcements...Matt Schaub has subtle ways of tipping off his guys as to what to do.

So, the short answer is "No, it's not true that Schaub cannot audible." The long answer involves lots more details than what I provided here, though. And there are a few people here who have the skinny on that.

That's because Dolphins don't rip your arms out of their sockets when they lose. Steelers have been known to do that.

The Texans are shaping up to be a very good football team this year, the meltdown on this board over their loss to an excellent Saints team last weekend notwithstanding.

Maybe they did when they were younger. "Chewbacca" is getting old. No one gets too scared any longer when he roars. I don't think they have the power to rip arms out of sockets, they're more likely to maybe dislocate your pinky. Still kinda painful but hardly life-threatening.


oh and thanks for the Star Wars reference (must spread rep); you know I'm a sucker for those
