    If Matt Schaub gets a sprained pinky toe, can Orlovsky step in and win 1 game? I ask this because Im under the impression that Matt may stub a toe in the kitchen and Texans miss the playoffs. Every year many teams miss playoffs because of 1 game. If Matt misses 1 game, it might be the difference in making or missing playoffs.

    I still cant figure out why this team will not draft a qb in 1-3 rounds .

    Schaub ain't got a small nizzle. He's a tough football player.

    Hmm.

    Rex beat out Dan O for #2 job. Rex played in one of the Jacksonville games, looked horrific. What, if anything, is that to say about Dan O? I'll just say, I think we're in trouble if Dan O. sees the field in the reg. season. Unless of course it's a "blowout" or we're resting players late in the season.

    Yes, I think with the offense around Dan O, he could win a game.

    Carr won games with almost no surrounding cast, now the team has Johnson, Jones, Walter, Tate and Slate, Daniels, and a lot of good little role players.

    The poll is too black and white. There needs to be a "couple wins, but won't lead us to the promise land" option.

    From what I've seen, I would say no. Dan Orlovsky cannot win a game. He could manage a game where his team plays well enough to win. But, being the difference maker in a NFL game? I don't think so.

    I'm disappointed that Kubiak couldn't find a young QB to groom out of this (or any other) draft. Other than his physical gifts, I don't see what he sees in Dan Orlovsky. And I think it could spell disaster if Schaub is out for multiple games (with this schedule). Which is why I'm secretly hoping that Favre returns to Minnesota, and the Vikings find it in their heart to trade Rosenfels back to the Texans.

    Oops. I guess it's not a secret anymore.

    Yeah, I couldn't vote just for that reason...

    It needs a "I think he can win a game, but we still need to find someone with more upside at that position".

    I think Dan O. is our QB for Gary to groom. I think Smithiak thinks Schaub can hold it together while O. gets more training & experience in the Texans system. The GM saw enough to offer the guy a pretty decent amount of moolah to ride the bench. So far Kubes is 0-1 on Texans QBs he thought he could improve. At least the present one will not be as expensive if he does not get it together.

    If Dan O gets anywhere near the field, the Texans are eff'd. No reason to believe otherwise.

    How about an honest poll choice? Nobody has any idea if he's good, bad or indifferent. The Lions could make anyone look bad and we've never handed him the reigns in THIS offense. It's a crapshoot.

    Orlovsky has a cannon....unfortunately he will forever be known as the guy who gave himself a safety.

    Yes. There are doormats every year and there's enough surrounding talent to to carry a bad QB through a win against an awful team.

    The pooll needs a choice like, "yes he can win a game in the NFL, but I wouldn't want him to be the starter or anything."

    Runoutofboundski has a good arm, but has his time under Kubiak given him the ability to use it wisely? Unless they bring in a veteran QB to back up Schaub, he's our number 2 guy and will see a lot of action in preseason. We'll know more then.
