    Question for all of you, has Schaub been worth his pay given the number of missed games and his performances the past couple of seasons?

    I don't know, but he hasn't YET been worth those two 2nd round picks we spent on him.

    The entire product as a whole hasn't been worth their pay...

    Do you think another team would give the Texans two second round picks and redo Schaub's contract to the same level? I don't think the Texans would do it again, but they might.

    So what's next ? Draft a qb and some secondary help? You also need a better o-line.

    Everyone is always going to say we need a better O-line. Yes, I'm not real impressed with our new center, but I didn't see any problems with him Sunday. I also don't think Schaub is done proving himself. He just hasn't been worth it yet.

    So far, Schaub has not been worth two 2nd round picks. Doesn't mean he won't in the future though. It doesn't matter now anyway.

    Not yet and thats parts of the problem! The only way to find out if he is going to be is to start him and keep starting him and let Sage ride the pine. Since we are 0-4 in the conference and 0-3 in the division that needs to be the focus of the remainder of the season is finding out if Schaub can carry this team.

    We still need Defense Defense Defense, S, LB DT, and pass rush end, get some in FA and draft the rest!

    Short answer: No

    Long answer: I'm not that upset about it, he's shown a lot of things that I can like about his game.

    Probably not, but that goes for any given entertainer. But that's capitalism. Society places a high value on being entertained these days.

    We have not had a starting QB in seven seasons that has really been worth what we have paid them.

    Perhaps Schaub proves his worth over time. But at this point, it's a work in progress at best. JMO

    No. He hasn't.

    I wish we could merge Sage and Schaub into one QB, to be honest.

    I think Schaub is going to get hurt, again, at some point.

    My avatar and signature explains how I feel about our QBs.

    Always be aware of this fact: Shaub is a woman. I think he is overpaid, but he DOES play well for a woman.
