Nicknaming a player before he plays a down in two years is asking the football gods to smite us once again. We already know they have put a target on us.

And lionheart is so 1980s.

Afterthought disclaimer editing: And I know your trying to have fun with the nicknames so don't come at me like I am the fun police. It is just a little premature and pointless to me. But you go ahead and have your fun and do whatever makes you happy..

Answer to thread title:

Schaub is a known commodity; Leinart is not. Not really. Not yet. Upside is great and all that, but I believe I was looking at a Superbowl contender and I don't like seeing changes, unless they are hand-picked out of desire (not necessity) and presumed to be improvements.

In Leinart I Must....so be it. GO LEINART!!!

yeh i think i know what got put in the koolaid .... it was a heapin helping of winning...

Nicknames, and intentional mispellings are a fact of of life on message boards, childish as it may be. I guess it's sort of an indirect protest.

Case in point .... Schaub. There are still some who wouldn't get get his name right if you paid them. Shobb, Swab, Swabb, Schwab, Schobb, Schwabb, Schuab .....

.....yuck. Disgusting.

Leinart isn't "Lionheart". He's "Time Machine" because he's been in a bunch of hot tub pictures and we're hoping he can go back in time and be the QB he was supposed to be when he came out of USC in 2006.

Can we just call him Matt* since his championship in 04 was stripped by the NCAA. Aside from the Heisman, he hasn't really accomplished anything.

Maybe Matty Lust?

I only give names to players who deserve them. Lionheart fits because the guy is trying to prove something in this league.

Other than that theres Owe'ing Daniels, Love Jones, Taters Homes (44 - Acres Homes bus route), Kushing, Pickain, J Josafe, lmk, i can keep going.

As good or better than Schaub has been this season, I think the argument can be made. Schaub hasn't looked like Schaub. He has not been as good as, or better than Schaub had been.
Not really fair to schaub, he hasnt had to be the schaub of the past 3 seasons. With our RB duo, And A.J out schaub has still been a very good QB.

Default Re: Why is your hand still over the panic button? (Lionheart)

Alright bro, here's the deal. Folks in H-town are hopping on the panic wagon because the quarterback position has been shakey for this franchise since Daisy Carrbomb rolled into town. Now don't get me wrong, we all love us some Corn on the Schaub. But when he goes down, we all have post-traumatic flashbacks of Doom Flakers calling run-run-passes. Next thing you know Grande Johnson is stonehanding passes, Tater Tots gets the butterfingers, Bob's your uncle, we got us a case of the jeebies.

But we'll pull it together, brother. Like John Claude Van Madden once said: you usually have to outscore opponents to win games. Or maybe that was my grandpa. He drinks a lot.

What point was I trying to make?

Anyway, I think the H-town Texicans will be just fine, and the fans are also keeping the faith. But I do enjoy your prose, sir, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

Kubiak has seen Leinart longer than Carr and Leinart is still on the team. That is a plus, but he has no real game time.

I'll go ahead and say it, we won't lose too much on offense. We are running the ball well and as long as MattL proves he can throw a forward pass with accuracy we will still be running.
