Does anyone still not think that Schaub is brittle?

    Ok, so there was no cheap shot on the play. No dirty hits. Nothing. All Schaub did was fall on the ground and what do you know, he gets his annual injury. What has Houston done to the football gods to make them hate us so much and wish this misery on us. Sigh....

    And apologies for the somewhat confusing thread title. It should read, "Does anyone still think Schaub isn't a brittle QB?"

    He made it a lot longer than I thought he would without leaving a game this season.

    The thing is that we all knew it was gonna happen sometime.

    Proximity to the Osteen ministry.
    Proximity to Enron.
    Proximity to Matress Mac.

    Just for starters.

    EDIT - Oops, my bad. I thought you said GOD, not football gods.

    Sucks don't it? I tried to be a believer and hope Schaub could make it an entire season and I could quit believing he is a brittle QB but alas, my dreams for this season have done anything but come true.

    Oh ... I thought it was the VY curse .

    I think a problem with Matt is the DTs can run him down from behind .

    Anyone can run Schaub down from behind. He just held on to the ball too long. Again.

    Also - Jags are TERRIBLE at sacking the QB. They have like ten all year... but were any of us surprised that Schaub got sacked on the first play? Nope.

    I like Schaub. I think we can win with him - unfortunately he needs FANTASTIC pass protection all the time to be his best, and that's just not going to happen. It doesn't happen with hardly anyone.

    So do we draft a QB this year? It's a great year to do it, and we should be able to get somebody pretty good in the 2nd-4th rounds. I'd look at Tony Pike personally.

    Yep ... Matt isn't quick .

    Schaub is a poor man's Bernie Kosar . Kosar's best weapon was his head . He also had a good RB combo .

    Let's hope he can stay out there. Already our offense looks ten times more confident.

    Agreed. I'd rep him if I could...

    Maybe he got online in the locker room and saw my thread and was like I'm gonna show this little POS...

    What's that about Schaub being brittle??! Give the man credit for pete's sake!! He probably has more xylocaine in his shoulder than a pharm has on it's shelf. BUT, he's out there doing his job!! The rest of the team needs to do the same!!!

    The guy who drove his shoulder into the ground came on AFTER he was initially stopped by the DT... the problem is Schaub held onto the ball... Schaub's as quick as Peyton the only difference is 18 has a better sack clock in his head than Schaub and throws the ball away

    Maybe he is brittle - but you can't (and never could) question his toughness.

    As you see in my post above, I definitely think the man deserves his credit. But history has shown he is rather injury prone. It is a pleasant surprise to see him back out there. The way he was acting I figured he would be out for at least a few games. History is on my side though. He has been shown to be a little brittle, but he is showing some major toughness being back out there.

    Or the injury really wasn't that bad, and he just made a bigger deal out of it than it was... Regardless, way to go Matt!

    When Schaub first came to the Texans, the ball was out of his hands on the
    3rd, 5th, or 7th drop. He has progressively held on the the ball long than
    he should have, and it got him a separated left shoulder. He needs to get
    back to making the right reads quickly, and in tempo.
