Heck, it might not work and you'll be left to choose between Kerry Collins and Vince Young for a few years, before getting shot at both of them and having to start a rookie, but you might as well try to get ahead of the game.
You're bringing up two situations that aren't the norm at all with Brady and Rodgers. How many 2nd string QB's end up being all time greats like Brady has been?? When you guys were going ape shit on Schaub there weren't many people thinking he had the ability to win a SB at all. It was just a few weeks ago, so that's why I pointed out that a lot of folks should be happy about this. The majority of QB's that have risen in this league have been top 10 QB picks and they're all a roll of the dice and we weren't going to be looking at any top 10 picks any way next year and there will be like 4 teams in the top 10 that desperately need a QB bad. That's why I thought it was crazy at how anyone would want to rid this team of Matt Schaub because he isn't some elite guy who is clutch all of the time.

THis season isn't over though. Have faith in Matt being servicable. I certainly do.

Dilfer just said don't be surprised if Yates QBs the team before the season is over.

I remember Cushing saying he had a hell of an arm and could run the wild cat like a mug, might be an option.

I'm going to try and be positive until we see how Leinart plays before I get too depressed. As long as we can still run the ball as well as we have we should be OK.

Default Re: Schaub injured (update)***Leinart named starter***

New report is that he is done for season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Matt Schaub is done for the season with a Lisfranc injury.
Matt Leinart will be the Texans' starting quarterback the rest of the way, with rookie T.J. Yates backing him up. Our suspicion is that this is a Lisfranc fracture, an injury that would require surgery and up to 8-10 months of recovery time. Schaub will finish the season with a 15:6 TD-to-INT ratio and 248-yard per-game average, essentially evolving into a game manager of a run-first offense. The rest of the skill players in Houston all take at least small hits, though Leinart's insertion could get Arian Foster more touches because opponents figure to be more competitive in games. Andre Johnson will return after the bye as more of a mid- to low-end WR1 than truly elite fantasy receiver play. He should still dominate targets in Houston's passing game. The offense will remain the most run-heavy in football.

We've got guys wanting to trade Mario for a stick of chewing gum.

We've got guys who felt we would be "ok" if Arian never came back with Tate & Ward.

We've got guys who want to get rid of Jacoby Jones when we only had 1 other healthy WR.

We just want this team to get better.

Default Re: Schaub injured (update)***Leinart named starter***

Maybe I'm just thinking too hard but...

With Leinart at QB the threat of the passing game is significantly less. This puts more pressure on the running game. Houston is in a four way tie for 10th in rushing yards per attempt. Nothing incredibly special. And that will only get worse with no threat of a passing game.

The reason the defense has been so good is because they have been good against the pass. Against the rush we are in a four way tie for 12th in rushing yards per attempt. The reason the numbers look so good looking at yards per game is because of our early leads and making teams have to pass the ball. With the shortage of offense and points, teams will be able to run the ball more often.

I just see this spiraling into a lot of new issues. I do think we can get two or three wins though, just don't see anywhere in the playoffs without Schaub. Next year....

We would have been forced to trade at least a 1st rounder to the Bengals. Kinda much for an old guy when you already have an established QB.
