Perfect time for the bye. Matt2 gets an extra week to get rolling and Aj gets to heal. Im trying to remain optimistic. Its getting real hard lol


Also this changes the dynamics of our bootleg. Matt L is a lefty. He will be rolling out the opposite way of schaub

Default Re: Predictions for Matt Leinart

I'm sure it's been said already but look at Matt the last three games:

11/15, 242 passing
14/23, 119 passing
16/30, 225 passing

His passing stats are bloated this week thanks to Arian taking a short completion to the house and the Bucs DB's cheating on play action and getting burned accordingly. Neither play was a superstar QB throw. My point is, there is nothing spectacular about those numbers because he doesn't have to try and win it himself with big time throws.

This offence has evolved into a fairly "fool proof" unit. We will run the ball 35 times, hit our TE's for first downs and utilize play action to stretch the defence. It's a dream offence for any backup QB to step into, especially when Andre is back. It helps that we also have a very good defensive unit that creates turnovers and good field position for our offense.

I'd be surprised if we go worse than 4-2 down the stretch regardless of who is at quarterback.

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.

Default Re: Predictions for Matt Leinart

Fact is, last week Schaub passed for 230 yards or so, now, I know he didn't need to pass for any more so this isn't bashing him in any way at all.

But thats my point. Schaub didn't have to do anything spectacular last week, heck, 150 of those yards came on 2 plays in which the reciever made people miss in space.

Here's what I'm getting at, when our D and running game fire on all cylinders, Schaub never had the chance to show what he could do. In the second half I think we had something like 30 passing yards. We had a good QB on the field but we didn't need to use him.

So if the running game and D continue to put in performances like that, how well does Leineart really need to do to pick up wins??

The truth is that as long as Leineart can make a few throws here and there early in the game, we'll be OK. At least the guy knows the system really well, has almost 2 years of practice snaps with the offense, and will realise that this is probably his one and only chance.

I look forward to seeing him earn us an extra #1 in this years draft over the remainder of the season.

Default Re: Predictions for Matt Leinart

Leinart doesn't need to be oustanding. With this rushing attack and having the #1 Defense right now he just needs to manage the game and not make mistakes. One advantage for him is that good tight ends and receiving backs are an average quarterback's best friends and that is one thing we certainly do have. If teams try to send the house against us it will leave Daniels/Dreesen open over the middle or Foster/Casey open in the flats. Leinart needs to just atke advantage of what is given to him and protect the ball when there is nothing.

You cannot overlook how well Schaub sells the play action. That's what makes the bootleg so effective, as well. The opposing team biting on a run allows him to run outside to find an open receiver.

I do not have a lot info on Leinart, especially how he sells the play action. Does anyone here know?

They need another QB. Fact.
What teams are ready to toss in the towel for the year and entertain trading their QB for picks?
Indy - nothing
St. Loius - nothing
Carolina - nothing
Minny - nothing
Miami - nothing
KC and the rest of the AFC west are out. All teams still in contention
Seattle and Arizona have nothing
Washington has nothing

Cleveland has Colt McCoy. They would probably part with him for a first and one of our QBs. I bet he would do okay with a strong cast around him. That's who I would target.

So you are hoping Matt 2 fails so bad that Yates comes in? You do realize that with Kubes and this organizations patience that Means losing the next 5 games.

I'm not one to question peoples fandom, but hoping your starting QB fails so that someone else can play is not being much of a fan.

Somehow the Texans have managed to win without Mario Williams and Andre Johnson. They will have to do the same with Schaub out.

We still have great running backs and a great defense.

With the bye week, the coaches are going to have to get Leinart prepped and ready. (I'm not sure how much work Leinart has got with the 1st team offense during practices.)

I'm sure no one with the Texans is sitting around feeling sorry for themselves. Let's go Texans! This is the year of the "Injured Playoff Run".

Matt Leinart hasn't done anything in the NFL. But he's gonna be playing behind the best offensive line in football. He's gonna have the best running back tandem in the league. The future hall of famer Andre Johnson should be returning just in time to put this team on his back and carry them into the postseason. And last but not least, he's got the NFL's # 1 defense in yards allowed covering up his mistakes.

Lets keep this run going Texans!!!

I'm being a realist. Leinart is an awful quarterback. Yates at the very least has potential.

Though obviously you're right. Kubiak is probably going to stick it out with him for at least a month even if he's as bad as I expect him to be.
