Hell, no. Keep them where they are. Don't change a thing.

This offensive line and its chemistry is one of the things that might be able to save us. (Along with the running game and the defense.)

Yes but they don't really have a good running game this year and don't have Andre Johnson.

Teams can stack the box against the Jags, they can't and won't against the Texans if Andre is out there. They still have to respect the PA also.

Time to see how bad Leinart wants an NFL career.

The league is QB hungry right now, loads of teams in need of an upgrade around so if Leinart can show that he's improved in his time sitting then he has the chance to get a starting job somewhere.

For Texecutioner, I was one of those who had stated that the time for the Texans to look to draft their future starting QB is coming, Schaub has his limitations and while he's good there is the opportunity to upgrade at some stage. The Texans may well have the luxury of spending mid-round picks on developmental QB projects within the next few years, so why the hell wouldn't they start looking? How many teams draft their franchise QB at the first attempt? How many teams wait years behind the likes of Alex Smith while other teams like the Packers or the Pats have maintained success because despite having great QB's they've been grooming the next man up well in advance, I mean, if you can get rid of future HOF Brett Farve and end up with Superbowl rings then you can damn sure try grooming someone behind Matt Schaub.

Don't confuse that with a belief that getting rid of Matt Schaub should be the Texans' top priority right now. Although I'm pleased that on learning this terrible news that could put paid to YOUR teams best shot yet at winning it all, you have found time to point score. Well done Sir.

I honestly have no idea how he will do, I could easily see it going either way but this is no indication.
I was only being half serious. The verdict on Leinart is still out and I'll be rooting for him to salvage his career with this opportunity. I say that because all we know about Leinart is that he has sucked in the past and will continue to suck until he shows us otherwise. If he marches us into the playoffs and does the position justice I'll proudly eat a serving of crow the size of Texas and give him earned props. Until then, he is just another doofus, bust QB from SoCal.

I'm not happy about this because Schaub has proven to be a damn good good top 10 QB. However, I have confidence in Leinart in this offense and I don't see this as the end of the world. His skill set is very similar to Leinart's skill set and if he can make good decisions and make accurate throws which he has always been as a passer than we should be alright and still be pretty competitive. That's a big "IF" though.
I hear yahoos calling local radio shows all the time blathering on about hating Schaub and it makes me want to jump through the radio to pimp slap them.

I haven't seen it a whole lot in the forum, but I don't read every single thread.

I've argued that he's top 10 when you objectively look at the 32 starting QBs in the league.

I'm not sure how to process this, though, because the only impression we have on Leinart is less than positive.

And with low confidence in Kubiak, I just can't blindly believe that his judgment about our backup QB will 100% be sound.

Obviously, I certainly hope Kubiak is right in keeping Leinart. It's going to be a much longer two weeks than previously anticipated.

So.... you're saying Lienart will struggle, but we'll win the Jags game anyway.. then lose to Atlanta @ home... then win the next 4 to secure home field throughout?

I can go with that.




It's yet to be seen, but Lienart can possibly the best QB on the field for the remaining 6 games of our season.

Thanks Tex for bringing me down to Earth.

Leinart has his problems, that's for sure. But he's still better than a QB off the street and our 5th round pick, who ever that was. We can still win the division, I'm OK with that. But I don't look for us to last very long in the playoffs once we get there.

Hopefully Hot Tub Boy get's his shit togeather and starts winning.

I think Schaub's done a pretty damn good job with this team over the years and couldn't understand at all at why folks wanted a multiple season 4,000 yard passer sent packing.

If we make the playoffs, I consider this season successful regardless of how it pans out.

At some point, that first playoff season monkey has to get off our back.
