    Mods, merge if necessary but figured it would get the most exposure if it was in its own thread.

    ''You want to be a part of helping him work his way through that. The only way I know how to do it is you play our way through that stuff. So that's what I'm trying to help him with and figure out and push him through it, so that our football game can push through it.''

    GK sounds like he is preparing to take a huge dump, not mentor a 10 year vet. What is he thinking can be pushed through? We already saw what happened when the motto was "cut it loose."

    No more cutting loose, no more pushing one through. That approach should have totally died at halftime last week. The best thing for Schaub is to sit down, grab a clipboard and headset, and watch at least until after the bye week. Clear his head from the public storms and get off the "X" in the media. Meanwhile his teammates get a glimmer of hope...possibly even a spark, but really anything but the sense of oh-crap-here-he-goes-again they must be feeling now.

    By then we would have a little more info on who else, if anyone, can play QB in 2013 for this team. But if Schaub and GK keep pushing and cutting loose, we're done.

    WOW! If Kubiak starts Schaub this week, I'm going to jump on the Fire Kubiak bandwagon for the first time. Maybe he can find a way to boost his confidence, but there isn't much he can do about the noodle arm Schaub has.

    It's my opinion that had Yates or Keenum been the one throwing that first pass last week, it would not have been a pick 6. Since the defender would've been out of position to make the tackle, AJ would've taken that pass for a nice gain. Matt doesn't have any velocity on his throws & both TJ & Keenum can zip it in there.

    After throwing picks in 7 straight games, it's time for a change!!!

    Schaub starting = Kubiak doesn't want to win games.

    This would be my preferred method of attacking this second quarter of the season personally. You nailed it.

    Correction: 8 straight non-preseason games.

    More proof Kubiak is a complete numbskull. As if we didn't know that already.

    We need a Jesus facepalm icon for the Texans to show exactly what kind of shape this team is in. LOL

    Unbelievable. Or at least it would be unbelievable if it wasn't Kubiak. This guy just becomes more and more of a joke every single day. The guy has zero clue about how to hold a team accountable for their actions and if it IS all on him as he loves to say, then the joker should have been fired 4 years ago. Yes Kubiak, it is all on you.

    I think this is out of context. He said this before or in the same interview he claimed he is evaluating all positions including qb to see who gives us our best chance to win.

    Schaub is going to have to deal with an angry crowd at Reliant. He is going to be rattled and probably make a mistake early on. Hopefully he overcomes the crowd hostility and has a great performance but given the circumstances, I don't think that will happen.

    I expect to see Yates and maybe Keenum on the field Sunday.

    How many other QBs in the NFL gets this many opportunities? 90% of the loss against the 49ers was on Schaub.

    Did anyone think Kubes wouldn't start Schaub? He will start Schaub barring injury until the end of time.

    I remember back when the knock on Schaub was he was too fragile, now the dude is like an iron man out there. I guess he proved people wrong that he's fragile. He sucks, but he's not fragile.

    Starting Yates or Keenum means he's thrown in the towel for the season. I'm not a fan of Schaub, but he's more likely to play well than either of them. Playing an okay backup or an undrafted QB is a recipe for disaster. Schaub might continue to play like crap, but I'll take the chance that he'll get out of his funk and at least get back to average. If he continues to stink it up, then we'll see Yates or Keenum anyway.

    Yup. And I bet if Ole Uncle Bob hadn't finally given Kubes an ultimatum Frank Bush would still be DC. I'm a loyal guy and place a lot of value on loyalty. That said, he is loyal to a fault.

    Also, Kubiak saying he'll "evaluate" the situation means exactly 0. That was just coach speak.

    Based on what you have seen going back to LAST SEASON.....what makes you think this is just a funk?

    From what I have seen there is no harm in putting in Yates or Keenum. I guarantee they won't throw 4 pick 6's in 4 games in a row and probably won't throw picks in what, the last 8 or 9 non preseason games going into last season?

    Schaub's lucky it was only 1 pick 6 last game. There was another of the 3 picks he threw that should have been another pick 6 had the defender not had to juggle it to catch it.

    And 100% of the loss to the Seahawks the week before was on Schaub.

    Um.....16 hours ago. This was before Pancakes went on PFT. I made a comment on these quotes in that thread.

    not necessarily. we didn't throw the towel in 2001. yates is better than his 2011 debut. he beat the bengals back then. so if a better yates today plays smart football then it gives us a better chance to win....much better chance than schaub at this point. if anything, I'd like for yates to play and give MS a break.

    i am hanging on to the belief that kubiak is saying schaub is the starter so that the rams prepare for schaub and not keenum.

    Do you really believe that Kubiak is either that smart or sneaky?
