    If Schaub passes for 146 yards this weekend he will have passed for 20K yards for his career. Not to shabby for a guy that didn't get to start until 2007. Eli is at 30K and he has been starting since 04.

    It is also looking like he is going to have another 4000 yard season. Hopefully this one counts unlike the 2009 and 2010 season.

    Schaub has really been a solid QB. Not flashy or anything but he just seems to get the job done. He'd have to have some really good games to reach 4k (he's on pace for 3.8k). The offense hasn't needed to pass a lot so if things stay the course, he may not have the chance to get there. Either way, I'm glad he's our QB.

    Schaub isn't flashy or creative, but he's steady and doesn't do a lot of things to hurt the team. He also sells the PA better than any QB in the league. I'll take that over a gunslinger type QB.

    thats only like 25 more yards a game. all it will take is a few really close games instead of these blow out and run the ball the entire second half games and he can get to 4500 yards.

    Schaub reminds me of Brady early in his career. People forget that Brady didn't have flashy numbers early on. He was just calm and steady.

    Schaub has shown over and over that if he needs to, he can sling it around with the best of them. The problem with that is that it invites mistakes and turnovers -- tipped balls, misreads, bad throws.

    What Kubiak wants, and he's said this from the beginning, is to minimize mistakes and take advantage of the opponent's mistakes. That's part of his strategy for winning. He wants an offense that takes what the defense is giving with a couple of shots thrown in for good measure.

    If the defense is giving us the short pass like the Jags did, we take that. If the defense is giving us the long pass like the Broncos did, we take that. We want to get a lead and then pound away with the rock. But if the score gets out of hand, then he'll do whatever it takes and if that includes airing it out, our O can do that, too.

    This year, Schaub has been (for the most part) doing exactly what Kubiak wants. He's taking what he's given and making good decisions. That's not the flashiest of football but it's a winning combination.

    And remember, Elway didn't win back-to-back Superbowls until the onus of the offense was shifted off of his back and he eased back into more of a game-manager type of role. He could still sling it but they only used that when they had to. That's exactly the role Schaub is filling now.

    Totally agree. Look at guys like TJ Yates who have been in TWO playoff games and has less than 1500 passing yards.

    Well, you're complaining that Schaub hasn't been to the playoffs yet conveniently overlook the fact that he would've been in the playoffs and probably would've taken us further in the playoffs had he not been injured. So obviously since TJ Yates has played in playoff games then he's a better QB using your logic. So is Sanchez, Tebow, Dalton and a bunch of other crappy QB's throughout NFL history.

    i never said that. stop jumping to extreme conclusions to prove me wrong.

    the fact of the matter is schaub has been a texans qb since 2007 and he hasnt yet been to a playoff game.

    its a reasonable critique. using tj yates, who was a rookie 5th round pick last year in defense of schaub is laughable.

    The play of Schaub last year got us to the playoffs. TJ just had to hold on to the end of the great start of the season. Schaub was a member of the team at that time and as such, has been to a playoff game.

    I promise you that TJ and the other members of the 2011 Texans team would consider Schaub a major part of last years playoff run. Even after he got injured, he worked extensively with TJ to get him ready. Would P. Manning or Favre have done that?
