I think the moral to my little story was that he disappeared because he was a middle option and no longer the last read/dump pass.

is it remotely possible that a large percentage of the time, the check down occurred because he was about to get hit in the mouth? I know he makes a ton of money, knew what he was getting into in the NFL, all that jazz, but he's been sacked an unGodly number of times .... ALL of those 200 some odd sacks aren't from running out of bounds behind the line .... I firmly believe that he's shellshocked ... but is it incurable? Time will tell I guess ...

Not picking on you, but picking on this logic that many people carry with two rhetorical questions. If a QB has a couple of concussions would that not have an impact on a pending contract? Mental fortitude is a must for this game, if it is lost does that not tone down the value of the player?

You follow me from thread to thread cracking on me ..... don't deny it ...

well I'd answer like this .... the Texans had no "realistic" choice in this matter ... oh you can say OF COURSE THEY DID but IMO they didn't ... If they believe he can flourish under Kubiak, no matter what has come before, they had to do the 3 year option .... showing confidence in him at a time when it's needed most is A MUST if he's to be their QB down the road ... is is fiscally responible? probably not but the sports world is rife with examples of crazy money ..... at least he can throw from 1st to 3rd (wait that's another story) .... seriously though, I think they had 2 ways to go ... release him or embrace him ....

and feel free to pick on me .... I've learned a lot by reading (and writing on) this forum over the last couple of years ... I'm one that's not clouded with the belief that I have more football knowledge than everyone else on this forum ...
