Michael Lombardi, NFL network analyst (and current hater of the 09 version of the Texans), and former NFL safety/analyst Matt Bowen have waged a little bet on our Texans: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/diner-morning-news-nfl-notes.html The bet stems from Bowen slighting the Titans, saying: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/spring-playoff-preview.html These words prompted the currently unemployed former Raiders exec to write a shortsighted grudge piece because he feels angst towards a Texans team whose bandwagon he was on last year only to be let down. http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/diner-morning-news-the-texans-debate.html While the piece is decorated with many flaws, the most glaring would be his analysis of Schaub and our apparent "leadership" issues Perhaps Lombardi needs to check out Jeff Chadiha's recent ESPN article on Schaub. Or he could just ask anyone on the roster for their thoughts on Schaub, you'd be hardpressed to hear any of them NOT mention "leader". I've heard a lot of Lombardi's Texans bashing and it all began when he didn't like our draft. Lombardi freely admits in his piece that he's disregarded all additions/subtractions in his analysis of the team and remains stubborn in his thinking that this team is "as soft as their schedule." My advice to Lombardi: suck it up dude, yeah we let you down last year, and yeah you're being immature just because you didn't like our draft you hold it against the entire team but don't put things on our quarterback that aren't true. Schaub has the ear of every guy in that locker room and they'll live and die with him.
