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.
Not sure he is the guy you want giving advice to Yates anyway as Gary said in his post, Leinart is the one with least experience and worst career, so yeah go over there and eat some sun flower seeds please.

Sure, he's the starter now, but i get while people still throw out the "third string" label, and it does not bother me...

Had Matt Schaub never been injured, TJ Yates wouldn't have seen a game day jersey this year, just practice ones... Let's not act as if Yates came into camp as a third string QB and battlefought his way up to first... The QBs just couldn't get out of Florida healthy, except for one: the third stringer!

(just came to mind: we played in Florida three times this year..shocked we're not already on Delhomme, and that Schaub wasn't hurt in Miami, MattyL in Tampa and Yates in Jax...)

Agree. He got a battlefield promotion to 2nd string, behind Schaub with the way he has handled the end of the regular season and the Bengals playoff game. He is getting a little better with each start.

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

He's going to be labeled that until the season is over. Which means you are either going to hear "Man! The Texans won with a third-string QB!"...or "Damn! The Texans wouldn't have lost if it wasn't for having a third-string QB behind center in the post-season!"

That's just the way it is. Unlike Tebow, who is now the starter after Denver released Orton, Shaub is the Texans starting QB and Yates was #3 on the depth chart. That's just a fact. It's no insult to Yates, the Texans or their fans to label him as such.

1. It makes a good story.

2. It's true. As good as TJ looks, Gary made no sign of putting him in over Leinart when Schaub was injured. TJ was Gary's 3rd choice as a starting QB. The fact that Gary has to play his 3rd string QB because the first two are injured doesn't change that.

The 3rd stringer is having success as the current starter!

Yes, we understand it's "technically" true, but Yates has been playing QB for us for 2 months now. He's no longer a "third string quarterback". He's the starter.

Yates is the starter period end of story because no other QB will play untill/unless he gets hurt. That is just a fact.

& he's only going to get better on the field.

Tj Yate's getting better on the bench days are behind him. Kubiak's approach to protecting him & developing him on the field has been nothing short of amazing & the way Tj has developed is just as amazing.

I think Tj has more upside than Schaub so the Texans have more upside with Tj.

All that said, I'm not saying that Tj should be the starter opening day next season. I don't believe that. Matt still gives us a better shot to win.... Today, if Matt were healthy I'd start Matt over Tj.

I firmly believe in playing the guys who give you the best chance to win "today" I'm only being honest in saying that Tj's learning on the bench days are behind him.

I know it isn't Kubiak's m.o. but next year I would be looking for more opportunities to get Tj in the game. If we're blowing teams out... or even a comfortable lead before the half, I'd throw Tj in there for 2 minute/4 minute drills & to close out games.

BTW, should TJ got knocked out of tomorrow's game, who's next in line? Trust me, should Flacco go down, the Ravens only have rookie Tyrod Taylor, a 6th round pick out of VA Tech. That is not a comforting though, seeing as how he's only taken two snaps in the regular season.

When I hear big time football analysts talk about TJ being "third string" I'm not bothered at all. It just makes our wins look a hell of a alot better.

It does bother me, however, when I hear texans fans call him 3rd string because realistically he is very far from it. TJ could start for good quarter of the teams in the nfl!! Right now he is our starter and number 1 at qb so let's show him the respect as our number one guy. Just sayin..

Yates may not be as good as Schaub, but he's at least proved himself far enough to not be written off as "the 3rd string QB".

Trust me, Yates will be 2nd string under Schaub next year. If Schaub doesn't come back from surgury in time, Yates will start. Hot Tub is outta here.
