    I'm thinking this doesn't really warrant a thread, but I thought it might temporarily lighten up the mood. Lock if unnecessary please.

    Yessir. We can't automatically assume Leinart is a bad QB. We'll find out at the Jags game for sure.

    Fine as in limp to 10-6/9-7, host a playoff game and losing it, or fine as in not missing a beat, protecting our #1 seed status or dropping one too many and still getting that bye, and maybe winning a playoff game or two?

    I can see the former, not so much the latter. Hope to be surprised.

    Oddly, seeing this put me at ease. I can't explain why. It just did.

    Leinart is good enough to help us win the division. I really believe that. It's the playoff games I'm worried about.

    I remember in an older version of Madden, they had a "Old Spice Swagger" rating for the players.

    I can't remember what Leinart's rating was, but it had to be through the roof right?

    These memes are killing me, Matt Leinart is like Joe Namath...only bad at QB (based strictly on what I've seen). Or I'm just drunk and trying not to think much about it.

    In a personal sense this is good. Waking up at 2AM local time for Texans kickoffs was not easy. This news will probably give me insomnia for the rest of the season so I should be fine.

    But more importantly, although I've never been impressed by anything I've seen from Leinart since he came to the Texans, if this HAD to happen:

    1) I'm grateful it was going into a bye week.
    2) I'm grateful it happened after the wave of RB injuries subsided earlier this year. The Leinart/Ogbonnaya combo would have been terrifying.
    3) I'm grateful it happened after the defense found its new identity and developed confidence far beyond what I was expecting this season.
    4) I'm grateful AJ is coming back, just in time.
    5) I'm grateful it happened in a year in the AFC South when suddenly the best remaining QB in the division is arguably Matt Hasselbeck. (That is not praise of Matt Hasselbeck.) If this had happened in a year where Manning was still playing, it would be hard not to be hopeless right now.


    I will be cranking some Tums a week from Sunday, yes, but is it over? Not by a long shot.

    We'll be fine because we have a dominating defense and a running game that controls the clock. Stay on the plus side of the turnover ledger and Texans continue to roll.

    If we had Blaine Gabbert at QB, then I'd be worried.

    We keep rolling.

    Just please, please let nothing more happen to our D, and umm.......Tate and foster.

    And let AJ get strong and back to 100% by playoff time.
