Default OMG. He's not 3rd string anymore.

TJ YATES-

STARTING QUARTERBACK FOR YOUR HOUSTON TEXANS.

74 year old Jeff Garcia is the 3rd string quarterback here. Get with the times. I swear if I hear anyone else on the radio call him the 3rd string guy I'm gonna fly through the telephone connections and punch them right in the ear.

File this next to "battle tested playoff team". Yeah... the Ravens were tested....and they lost. So how does that help them?

/rant. Back to your regularly scheduled TT.com surfing.

I am ok with him being called 3rd string QB that is starting. Gives him more pizzass. I don't care what they call him as long as he is called winner.

Thank you.

He'll NEVER be 3rd string again. He's the backup after this playoff run...or the starter, if you are following me...

Hot Tub may be in serious trouble next year. I can actually see Kubiak letting Hot Tub go (or trading him for some low round pick) and keeping Delhomme as our 3rd stringer.

Me too. I don't see how Leinart comes back as the 2nd string QB unless we trade Yates in the offseason. Yates has proven himself at least good enough to be the 2nd string guy for us. And considering Schaub will be 31 at the start of next season, the Texans may consider Yates their QB of the future and let him take over the starting gig in 2 or 3 years.

EDIT: Speaking of Leinart, has anyone else noticed his lack of contribution in helping Yates since he got hurt? On the sidelines it seems that Schaub, Delhomme, and Garcia are all actively involved discussing what's going on in between offensive series, but Leinart seems to stand away from them. Noticed it often enough at the Bengals game to make me wonder about it.

Agreed...just threw some **** in there to f around. I think it's bordering on AUTOMATIC that Yates is the backup next year.

IMO if he had been promoted based on play, he would not be considered "3rd string"

But he was promoted solely based on injuries, and because of that, the IR'd players before him are technically still ahead of him on the depth chart but unable to play.

Therefore he's 3rd string until they come off IR and he proves he can beat them when both are healthy.

I think eh'll be 2nd stringer next year

Definitely. Delhomme is obviously capable as a 3rd stringer and will be cheap to sign.

I see absolutely no reason to keep Leinart next season. He's a lefty, yet Schaub and Yates are right handed, he's owed 3 million (made 2.5 this year), and Seattle was interested in him last year. Seattle is the team that traded a 3rd round pick and swapped 2nds with the Chargers for Charlie Whitehurst. Then they signed him to a 2 year 8 million dollar deal! I think we could easily get a 6th or 7th out of them for Lienart. If not, cut him and spend the money on someone worthwhile like Myers, Foster or Marques Colston.

Leinart signed a two year, $5.5 million contract on 7/9/2011.

If the Texans choose to keep him, he's locked up until 2013.

$3.75 of the contract was guaranteed. If Leinart's no longer the backup, the Texans probably wouldn't want a third stringer making $1.75 million.

Leinart is gone after this season. TJ showed himself to be a Much more capable backup to Schaub. I also don't mind the media calling him third string, will make it that much sweeter when we win

I would not want things any other way because all three of them have had much better NFL careers then Matt Leinart and two of them have been wnners in the playoffs.
