    LOL!

    I kid.

    Seriously, can we give some love to Schaub? He KILLED it today. I didn't get to watch the whole game because I was traveling to Katy for dinner with my pops, but 24/28? C'mon now...that's pretty durn good.

    I thought I was watching Colt McCoy throw it around .... Until I remembered what stadium I was in.

    Real good game by Schaub , now if he can only do that on the road next week .....

    Schaub love? No way! Not when we have Rosencopter!

    I was greatly out numbered in my section today by Schaub haters. I just don't get it. I think they were watching more for their opportunity to boo then to watch the Texans win. I was making snide comments in the fourth quarter to the effect that we should put Sage in to make it interesting.

    Please don't make me eat those words Matt!!!!

    Wow, really? I don't know what game or QB those Schaub haters are watching, but he's had a couple really solid games. I know he still has to show consistent quality decision-making and he didn't face a tough defense this week, but our offense has really made it easier on the QB this year with a good running game and a ton of weapons at receiver.

    Yes, Schaub had a great game the last two games, but the two teams we beat are 0 - 15.

    I'll really be impressed if it's the same after the next two games.

    GREAT GAME MATT!!!!!!!!!:kingkong:

    I wouldn't say they were yelling "Start Sage", but they were audibly angry at Schaub, especially in the first quarter when they had to punt on that first drive (the drive after JJ ran it in). They all shut up in the second half. I just don't get the contempt for him. I'm sure it's a combo of the injuries last year, the turnovers in the red zone, and what we gave up for him, but I think people need to get over it. He's going to do a lot more good for this team then bad in the long run, and I hope people start coming around to that.

    I don't get it either. Seems like some folks just want to manufacture stuff to ***** about and others just want their guy to be the "Chosen one" and to do that they feel the need to drag the other guy down. I guess they see it as some sort of zero sum game rather than a good thing to have two guys that can play.

    I agree. Here is the funny part. the whole start Sage group isn't really posting after wins. That is like 3 nice games fro Schaub, including the J'Ville loss so they will wait to he has a bad one and talk about how Sage wouldn't do that...even though Schaub just got us our first 3 game streak. Some people truly just want to complain to prove a point instead of winning.

    They were Vince Young fans and they were actually yelling "Sausage" not Start Sage. Easy mistake.

    *ahem* Do we not remember what Sage was able to do in the last 4 minutes of his last game? Let's just say he didn't really "put the game away" if you know what I mean. :foottap:

    Schaub has been consistent the last two games. I like it alot.

    If he can keep up this level of play, we could be a dangerous team.

    The last 5 games he has the best QB rating in the NFL and that is with one game of him not playing due to illness and Sage in.

    He had a great game with the Jags. I didn't like the Miami game all that much. He made some great plays, but I didn't think he was overly consistent.

    It's good news though because it's one great game, a little bit of inconsistent game, and two more great games. I really like what I am seeing. Hopefully we can keep this up. Our receivers have ALOT of confidence right now, and it looks like Schaub has started to get some confidence as well.
