TYPICAL.

We are 7-3 and your are talking about firing our head coach.

Leinart is a very similar QB to what Schaub is. He throws lob passes but is pretty darn accurate. He isn't mobile at all, but he throws with his left hand which will be the hard thing to get used to. If he can get better at his decision making and has matured this might not be the end of the world.

For Schaub bashers that have wanted him gone, they should be stoked right now.

Honestly I'm not in panic mode.

Texans haven't been passing the ball a lot and it matt2 gets to make some of the same throws that matt1 made I think well be ok.

But I don't remember seeing anyone say that Leinart was better that shammy.

Yeah but AZ's oline sucked those years. That was why Warner had to retire, kept getting killed and end up with a concussion.

This Texans team has a much better Oline to protect Leinart than he did in AZ PLUS the Texans have a much, much, much better running game....

In 2 weeks, we will see what kind of miracle worker Kubiak is with QB's

Default Re: Predictions for Matt Leinart

Matt Lienart made a living in college hitting wide open receivers because he had a dominating running game behind him.

The Texans offense is the best in the league at getting receivers open, IMO.

Not only that, but teams will put more emphasis on shutting down our running game, and I think Lienart will have plenty of open looks.

He doesn't have to beat the world, just manage the game.

That should be the main thing that is pounded into his head. YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO WIN A SUPER BOWL IN A SINGLE GAME.

Really, if you think about it, Schaub hasn't really had to do much this year to win games. I can't think of many situations that the game was thrust upon his shoulders, and he had to go out and win it.
I've seen a few mentions of how our running game has taken the emphasis off the passing game, and reduced the number of mistakes Schaub has made.

This situation sucks, but I'm optimistic that the team can carry Lienart through it successfully. Not the other way around.

One thing we are going to miss from Schaub is that he had real comeback ability.

Usually he came back from large holes and the defense failed him. I was looking forward to this as this is a ability we will need in the playoffs against better teams.

I'm still too shocked at the news to process a prediction at the moment...

We still have a no. 1 defense and a great pair of running backs, so all hope should not be lost.

In Leinart We Trust!

The Cardinals aren't exactly known for their QB decisions...in fact it is the one thing that holds them back.

If Kubes likes Matt 2 I like Matt 2. He knows what he's doing with QBs.

Well sometimes when things go wrong, you get on a bad roll - bad gets to worse and you are still a young guy - everything seems to work against you, expectations, O-Line, running game, following a superbowl MVP...

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation you can`t get yourself out of.

And sometimes a change of scenery and the right people can help you get back to yourself, learn and improve. And then there might be the one chance to make it all right again. The one chance to take all the bad stuff and the good stuff and show what you are really made off.

Let`s just hope, that this is the story for Matt Leinart...

Everyone needs to calm down. Matt Leinart has 2 weeks to get mentally and physically prepared. Leinart has been with our club for a couple years now and he knows how things work. Worst case scenario Leinart gets nervous and gets defeated by himself.

If this was going to happen it couldn't have happened at a better time.

Leinart now has two weeks to take first team snaps and prepare like an NFL starter. Schaub isn't dead so he will be there to go with him through the whole process of breaking down film etc.

Leinart will be helped by the return of Andre Johnson which should pull someone out of the box again giving us even more room to run the football meaning Leinart will have to do little more than manage the game. Much like Alex Smith is doing with the 8-1 San Francisco 49ers.

We don't have a very hard schedule and hopefully Schaub can use this time to heel up and come back ready to go for a strong playoff run.

My understanding is that Seattle never made him an offer.

But, your overall point is a good one, though. Leinart did take himself off the market and decided to stay in Houston. So maybe he's getting it.

I guess and that bar wasn't set too high...

This is a far better system for Leinart than AZ was. Can't wait for 2 weeks to fly by.

Matt 1 is out for the year.

But I agree with everything else. Especially about Andre, no one is putting 8 man in the box when he's out there, I really hope they do...good luck with that.

No less Daniels, Walters, and Casey...Teams still weren't stuffing men in the box when Andre went out. Texans have a very good Oline, as I said we are not the Colts so dependent on the QB that if he goes down it's all over with.

No, a ton just wanted him sent packing after the season and stated over and over that they had seen enough. I remember going on and on and explaining how hard it is to get a top 10 QB and how there really was no one better we'd have a shot at. So now folks can see what it's like to have someone else in there. Some were even asking for Leinart actually.

I'm not to worried either. I have confidence that Leinart can do alright in this offense and was happy that we resigned him in the off season. He's a good back up to have, and I sincerely hope that he doesn't prove that statement to be wrong. His skill set is very similar to Schaub's though.
