It does not matter if a player goes to another team and make someone better. In sports two players to make each other better.

you deserve a poke for that tidbit of not knowing what you are talking about. Walter being small and shifty isn't an opinion unless you think that Wes Welker is a tall physical wr who is a hell of a blocker....in that case I'll cut you some slack.

Schaub has not thrown a TD pass in the past 23 quarters.

Why wouldn't it be on Schaub should be the question. Very few teams win a Super Bowl with subpar QB play. Dude is going to have to step up if this team is going to have a chance.

Throwing a pick 6 to a Patriots team won't do the trick.

Agree! throwing a pick in a play-off game is not good.
Ask Brady when he threw one against the Jets and 3 times against the Chargers.

Schaub, for whatever reason, has not been playing as good as he used to. He is just not the same QB that we saw making all those 4th qtr comebacks a few years ago. He just isn't.

Brady had thrown for 3 INTs 3 times, 2 INTs twice, and one Int 7 times in the play-offs.

(Somebody double check it please).

But we did come back twice this year, Thorn.

And Schaub can't help in that regard when we had leads in many other games.
On the one hand, you'd rather for us to have a lead throughout, on the other hand, you want us to come back in the 4th, too.

Can't do both, Thorn.

There are a couple of great QBs in the AFC, neither can bring their team to a better record than 12-4 this year.

Why didn't they make those come-back you're longing for Schaub to do?

Well nobody is perfect.

Brady's track record speaks for itself. Dude has had a HoF career...and it's still being written.

Brady gets the benefit of the doubt because he's earned it at this point.

Schaub...not so much. And I like Schaub and hope he plays clutch on Sunday. I'm not into predicting performances, so I'm just hoping for the best.

And that's the difference. With QBs like Brady, Peyton, Rodgers, Brees, you EXPECT greatness. With a QB like Schaub, you just HOPE.

I do agree, though, that defense needs to step up big time this Sunday if the Texans are to have even a chance at victory. All facets of the team need to play above and beyond themselves to make that happen.

And it's not like Brady was throwing a ton of picks in the play-offs early in his career either.

Your apologies for Schaub are laughable. Schaub carries the biggest cap hit on this team. He is the QB. He is playing like crap. At least compared to his play earlier in the year and previous seasons. Plain and simple, Matt Schaub must play better for the Texans to advance in the playoffs.

Brady might be drafted low due to his miserable numbers at the combine, but he since has been rewarded substantially financial-wise when he proved that you need more than athleticism to be one of the all-time great QB.

The Texans pay Schaub at the average level in the league.
The team is not built to have him carry the load.
It is built to split the load, more of it is supposed to be on the defensive side.
I know we're stuck with Schaub, but wouldn't the Texans benefit immensely from an elite type QB?
Yes, Schaub's good at the play action.

Default Re: Why is it on Schaub and not the D?

Ha, just noticed the title of this thread. Bottom line is Schaub has been horrible for the last month or so, since the NE game. When NFL network even notices he's only thrown 1 TD for numerous quarters, yes he's not playing well at all. Not sure how you equates Schaubs crappy performance having anything to do with the defense's play?
