I appreciate and thank Mr McNair and the Texans organization for giving me the opportunity to play. I will miss the Texans fans and most Importantly my teammates. I have no time to get down, focus is on getting healthy and being ready to go again! #believe

I was one of the hold outs. They must feel comfortable with Schaub's progress, or maybe they're rolling the dice. I can't see them letting a veteran QB familiar with our system go without seeing Schaub on that foot.

Hope for the best, plan for the worse... that's the way I roll.

As a USC fan, I remember Matt throwing his teammates under the bus after they lost to Vince Young.

Glad to see the clown go.

Saying that, I personally don't believe it is worth cutting players like Leinart & Winston to clear room for Mario, my premise has always been that we had the room to sign Mario & our other players, by lowering his $18M cap number & restructuring other contracts.

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem cutting them to upgrade at either position. I've never been big on Winston & had I known he was going to be a $5M+ cap hit in 2012, I would have suggested cutting him myself. I've already suggested starting Butler at RT for a couple of years now.

But, I am very concerned about losing Leinart. Tj is still a back-up & we don't know that Schaub is going to start week 1.

I really feel for Matt L. When Schaub got hurt, I saw the opportunity for what it was: an audition for a job next year somewhere else. My heart sank when he got drilled v JAX. I hope he gets a chance somewhere. Rotten luck, but the cut was not unexpected.

I thought the same thing, too. Trying to make one big dent in the salary situation to tell Mario, "Look, this is what we can do. Is it enough?"

But then again, I don't see Bob begging to THAT degree...to cut Winston so brutally like it ended up.

It seems to me like the moves to cut Winston and Leinart free'd up money, along with AJ's re-structure, to satisfy players on our roster not named Mario Williams.

I personally think it'd take a HUGE gutting of this team's UFAs to retain Mario prior to him hitting FA tomorrow. Mario is a class act AND he's wise. He knows, generally speaking, how much cash he can command this year. We wanted Mario to become THIS type of coveted player, and unfortunately I think it's the end of the road.

I'm neutral in all this. 2011 taught me to trust the Texans. Funny what a dominant defense can do for a fan's psyche. eh?

Couldn't the Texans re-sign Delhomme at the vet minimum, and have only 1/2 of that count against the cap? I'd rather have Jake at a cap value of $500k than Leinart at $2.5 million.

Yes so long as the deal has no signing bonus (or maybe there is some minimal limit like $25-50k). And I agree.

I already made that joke to her. She said she wasn't interested. And that I should stop calling her. And how did I get her number.

I think most everyone saw this coming. Leinart was bad in his very limited play, Yates out played him, and makes way to much money for a check down QB. This might be the end of his NFL career, maybe he catches on in Canada or Arena League.

I agree. Delhomme looked pretty good against the Titans and imho would make a better and much cheaper backup than Leinart.

He isn't the guy he was at USC. He lost his cockiness after being replaced by Warner and and then being cut. He came here humble and worked hard on his game. Seems like he matured and is a better man for it.
