    Thought this was a good article on Schaub. Didn't see it posted yet so I thought I would share something positive around here.


    "Schaub has pinpoint accuracy, is a very good athlete, has a big league arm and oozes leadership. He played for an NFL coach in AL Groh at the University of Virginia, who prepped him for this opportunity."

    Wow, those are the words that were never spoken about Carr from his team mates. Never discount cohort feedback if you are a coach or manager as it peels back the onion better than any action or result.

    Wow, on the poll of who the winner was, 50% said Texans, and only 25% said Falcons, and 18% said both

    68% of people think it was a good trade

    I would listen to FOX Sports more if they were on more stations that I could get. I only can hear them so often. Most cities go with ESPN and local stuff. Man, after a year of ESPN radio I'd had enough. Just this morning I turned them on for a few minutes and they were talking of the Texans and it still amazes me how they don't have their facts straight on the team.

    The article says he has a strong arm, but other articles contradict that statement. That 40-60 yard pass to Peerless Price a while back was beautiful, but my question is, how is his downfield passing?

    well I look at it like this, the Texans are not going to ask Schaub to make 60+ yard throws, I think if he can make the 20-30 yard throws with accuracy that will make a huge difference in the offense, I dont forsee all the dump off throws anymore at least I hope not, but what do I know I am just another Texans fan

    The biggest difference between Carr and Schaub.

    LEADERSHIP

    Carr's team mates lost their faith in him.

    Schaub's team mates would go to the mat for him.

    The best thing that I've read is by one of the falcons fans on here who said that everytime that Schaub went under centre the other players would get up and stand on the sideline to root for him.

    He will take the offense on his shoulders and everyone will give that extra 10% that it takes to win. Not saying they were tanking for Carr, but there are times when you get inspired by someone/something and play beyond yourself.

    I think Scaub is that kind of guy.

    I listen to Adam Schein on Sirius Radio. He hosts the Afternoon Blitz, and he has raved about Matt Schaub any chance he could get. I couldn't wait to listen to him the next day after the trade was made. He was almost beside himself.

    Pat Kirwin and Tim Ryan on the morning show Moving The Chains both think Houston hit a home run on this trade.

    Those of you who don't have satellite radio should seriously consider it if you want to listen to a station that talks strictly NFL. Especially these days. The Texans are a very hot topic on all the shows, and they are making an effort to take a lot of Houston calls.

    "Good stuff" as they like to say.

    Bingo! That's it.

    You know? If Carr, during say the second season, would've gotten pissed and said, "I'm sick of being sacked! Get me some *blank'n* front line help!" I would have LOVED to have seen that because it would tell me that he had fire in his belly and wanted to win. But it's a moot point now.

    LEADERSHIP damn right(and a good QB as well).

    What was his 1st act as a Texan?

    To get EVERY players number to call and talk.

    ANYONE ever hear of Carr doing that? Hell, anyone hear many QBs doing that?

    Well if the voters on that poll felt that Schaub was the best quarterback the Falcons had, but the the Falcons were stuck with Vick because of his 100 million dollar contract, then clearly the Texans got the better deal.

    We'd be complaining about first-round byes and homefield advantages - what a thought!

    he's got a nice arm, but he's not a downfield guy. he can throw the ball if it's there, though.
