Leinart will be fine.

I think he will play very well for us.

The possible silver lining here is the opposition does not have much film on Leinart. Kubiak will do everything he can to get him comfortable.

If Leinart has matured at all and is willing to put in the work (as in his butt better be at Reliant as I type this), he might work out fine. Heck, he may surprise a few folks.

I think he game manages us well enough to get us the division win and looks competitive in the playoffs.

I think the ceiling has come down on the season some if Schaub is not QBing in the playoffs.

Schaub has not been that prolific this year, I can't see why Leinart can't handoff, hit some wideopen guys off playaction and pitch and catch with AJ and AF.


Best of all we get the news with the bye in front of us and the Jags to beat on the first week up.

Keeping the faith, keeping my spirits up.


and MOAR Hottubs.

Yeah but Steve Young pretty much laughed at that idea. I'll go with Young on this, besides if it was that big of a deal then we'd never bring in a left-handed QB to back-up Matt 1.

If this was a short week then I think it would be a problem, but everyone has two weeks to get used to their new left handed QB.

The Houston Texans have survived some big injuries this season: defensive end Mario Williams (done), receiver Andre Johnson (due back soon), safety Danieal Manning (due back in a few weeks).

Next we’ll find out if they can win without quarterback Matt Schaub.

Here's my Leinart prediction.

He steps in for Schaub and takes the Texans to the playoffs. From there it gets a little more hazy, but he does well enough for the Redskins to trade a #1 pick for him (provided the Shanahans don't get fired).

Considering Hot Tub Boy's surrounding cast on offense, and our defense, I'll buy that.

The Dilfer that "led" the Ravens to the Super Bowl with his stellar play. Hand off, don't turn the ball over and let the defense win games. Yea, his opinion is valuable.

Go ahead... Rush 7 or 8 and leave a well-rested and repaired A.J. in single coverage if you dare.

That's what hot read slants and WR screens are for

If I'm Dennison with two weeks to get a game plan ready, I'll play them just like we did Cleveland and Tampa who also figured they could stack the box and stop us. Early on we passed them silly.

Matty 2 will be OK, and that is all we need him to be. He can't ask for a better situation to come into. He knows the offense, has plenty of time to study the opposing defense, has numerous weapons and a great Oline.

I'm sure the Jags will stuff plenty of guys in the box at first, but once we burn them on a slant pass to AJ, or a screen pass to Foster then they will become a lot more honest.

I'm sure he will make some mistakes, but this running game and D should allow him some breathing room in that case anyway.

I bet the first play from scrimmage will be a play action to a wide open Andre Johnson. Show them why you shouldn't stack 8 or 9 in the box against this team.

The backup QB has one job. Hiding the gaping hole left by the starting QB going down.



If you found your backup QB in some other teams scrap pile then you might be paying for this injury with your job....
