The momentary acute stress on the back foot alone or the anticipation of it being painful is enough to affect all aspects of Schaub’s game......including strength of throw, accuracy of throw (long, short or wide), ability to acutely side step to the left or step up (push off) in the pocket, or bootleg, QB sneak or play action to the left (try to find the last time Schaub ran one to the left).
I think this explains a lot about why the offense moved so slow this season.

I also think this is the reason why Schaub won't be the starter next season.

And these numbers do not come from the professional athlete pool......i.e., one that would require much higher demands on a foot than the regular Joe.

I am certain the Texans knew of the risks when they re-signed.

Other notes:

Interestingly, Schaub never showed up on injury reports during the last part of the season when he was struggling. Even after the Detroit game, where it looked like the majority of the team was there. And after Schaub took some shots, including that one that was in my blog post link, where Suh pulled down Schaub with all his weight, and Schaub's knees went a little in the direction that knees aren't supposed to go. He kept throwing after that, didn't notice anything particularly odd about footwork, but often you don't feel stuff until post-game.

I saw Schaub's rehab on a side field doing agility drills before the season. Doing drills I looked specifically how he was moving. There were other players who I didn't think would be ready for the season who weren't--Hartmann, Sharpton, but Schaub looked surprisingly spry for a tall guy.

We can speculate all we want, and you just never know. Though he isn't the same player, I'm surprised Dunta Robinson is as functional as he is despite his injury.

What we do know for a fact is that whatever the Texans are thinking in-house about the future of the QB position is likely going to be staying in-house. There's no benefit to undermining him publicly.

FWIW, he's golfing OK with the boys.

I would love to hear Docs thoughts on whether Schabs performance will be better or worse as time progresses. If the answer is WORSE then finding as QB for the future becomes priority #1. Unless they think either Yates or Keenum can be the QB of the future. (I cant see that happening.)
I do not look for Schaub to demonstrate improved performance with the passage of time. Rest may again afford him a couple of decent games at the beginning of next season. But performance is likely to deteriorate quickly thereafter, just like during this season. Factors related to arthritis or ligament stretch do not improve with more wear and tear.

did you happen to see him doing similar "motions" later in the season? did he look as spry?

This is something I didn't think about. We lost Knapp in the offseason. Anyone think the QB coach is the reason for the regression, and we should be looking elsewhere for another coach?

BTW, we just lost our shot at getting Knapp back. He signed with the Broncos to be their QB coach. Even if we did make him an offer, how do you pass up the chance at coaching Peyton.

All 5 games we lost were against playoff teams. Would it have been better if we lost close games to bad teams?

Default Re: 2012 Texans Year in Review

nice blog, steph and i enjoyed the read . . . very well thought out . . . it seems many underestimate the loss of the qb of the defense, brian cushing . . . and then when we continue having injuries at the position and we are down to 3rd and 4th stringers at lb, who wouldn't expect other areas of the defense to get exposed . . . as you noted, we have developmental players all over the team, but they are improving and got many more reps this year, especially in the secondary and on the oline . . . i see the team moving up and getting stronger . . . i'm anxious for the draft . . . geaux texans . . .
