This has probably been posted but on In the Huddle this morning Clayton panned the trade saying: - Schaub probably won't do much better than Carr did. - It all boils down to passing on Reggie Bush last year (that's verbatim I think, what a putz) - We released Domanick, Carr, and Moulds and their replacements are going to hurt us in the pocket book. - We still have a crappy O-Line that we've done nothing to change. My thoughts on his comments: While Schaub and Ahman Green don't necessarily have cheap contracts, they are much less than the contracts we would've had had we drafted Reggie last year and a QB in the 1st this year. Passing on Reggie Bush is hardly the base of the problem, he's not even the best running back on his team. Domanick Williams not working out was not the FO's fault, they stuck with him to make sure we didn't let him go if he was going to come back, but him not being able to overcome his injury is not his or our fault. Ahman Green's deal is not that rough on the cap. I do agree with his assessment as far as the OL and Moulds go. Is Schaub going to be able to do better than Carr did with the same OL and no real #2 receiver? That's alot to ask of him, IMO. We've signed and resigned some good depth along the OL, which has always been a problem, but we still have big question marks at both tackle positions and the center position. Counting on Spencer is a gamble, Winston hasn't had a full year of experience at RT, and Flanagan has injury problems. We need a #2 WR, and another starter quality tackle IMO, to give Schaub a fair chance at success. It seems as though most people in the Houston media are praising the trade, while everyone outside of Houston is panning it. That's been the norm for us the last couple years. I think Schaub could be a good QB, but I don't see us taking a big step forward this year unless we fix the holes that will still be around him.
