Default Re: Who's better Schaub or A Smith?

If I step out of my Texans gear and take off my homer glasses and consider the situation, I come to one conclusion.

If we had an opponent coming up and their starting QB was Matt Shaub...meh.

For you Shaub lovers, sorry, it's just the way I see it. I don't know how well he'd do against our secondary the past few weeks, and they made Henne look pretty legit.

The first few games of the season, Shaub looked crisp and decisive. I ALMOST bought his jersey, then he came back down to earth and now all I can think of is "oh boy" Shaub after that interception he threw in OT against the Ravens in 2010. Accuracy, Arm Strength, hell, overall physical strength and ability to perform are constant question marks that we argue about here.

People on the Pats, Packers, Broncos, etc...boards are not arguing any of that.

Still. If I were the opposing coach, I'm game planning for the good Matt & hoping he doesn't show up. However, I know I have no idea which guy will show up.

Odds are in my favor that I will get the guy the Vikings whupped.

Still, if I'm the coach of the Colts, I know it doesn't matter because my starters aren't capable of beating the bad Matt. Bad Matt shows up & I can make it look like a game. Good Matt shows up & I'll put my back-ups in & say I'm resting my starters for the play-offs.

Schaub played ok last time we played the Colts at home.

Are you forgetting that Braman blocked a punt for a TD?

That game wasn't some lop sided ass kicking. Yeah we won pretty handily, but lets not act like we came out and mopped the floor with them.

Take away a goal line fumble and block punt, two freakish play that hardly happen in football, both happened in one game. I'll go out on a limb and say that's probably the first that ever happen in the nfl.

So yeah take those plays away and ask ourselves did we actually convinced the Colts that they can't beat us?

Don't forget they fumbled on the goaline too. That's two mistakes that really was the difference in the game. This game might not be the cakewalk people are making it out to be.

Never said we mopped the floor with them, but the game was never in question. We controlled the clock & the tempo.

We forced a fumble, we blocked a punt, and their last score, was from a boneheaded mistake by someone who got benched. Take that score away (if you're taking away our blocked punt) then the game was just as lopsided as the score suggests.

We gained more than 100 yards offensively, we held the ball 5 minutes longer, they could not convert on 3rd down.

The Colts are as bad as the Titans. Right now, Locker is a better QB. This bad Texans team owned the Titans at home & away.

Mistakes?

Jj Watt getting up in Ballard's schit isn't a mistake. Bryan Braman beating that blocker isn't a mistake. It's just a matter of time before that ball comes out.

Demps sitting & watching a player run past him for a score... that's a mistake.

You can say that about a lot of games. You can even say the Packers beat us due to two mistakes.

Wow... inside the 20 - in the red zone - passing at a 60% rate and has 25 TDs to ONE pick.
Sure doesn't "feel" like that.

Because we've got the best Red Zone back in the league. We get inside the 20 & we're running the ball.

It's very difficult to not see the coaching weakness when you have Schaub, Andre, OD, & Arian on the same team, but you're 1-5 in the Red Zone against the Colts.

Guess he's better than Tom Brady too. Haven't we learned that winning is not a stat that can be used to evaluate a QB without looking at everything else he does? VY anyone?
