    I believe Schaub is a great fit here, even more so with our new found defense, dual threat backfield, and a FB that can catch. I think he is very good to great when healthy.

    The reality though, he is injury prone and brittle. He has been battlefighting a hip and shoulder injury all year which is why his throws have been off. Dude is not built to last, and now he will be even slower and less athletic with a stump foot.

    No matter what you believe about his ability, he is on the wrong side of 30 and has missed 5 or more games in 3 out of his 5 years as a starter. Individually they seem like freak injuries, but it is now the rule rather than the exception.

    can't believe there is a thread on this.
    That injury prone bulls**t was used a few years ago and that was because he coped some cheap shots in the back field. yeah he battles injuries through the year but u find me a player in the NFL who doesn't.
    Schaub is not injury prone. his taken a lot of big hits and he gets up and gets on with it!

    How bout you let fat-ass haynesworthless roll on the back of your ankle and see how tough you are? This thread is stupid, he hasn't missed a game in three years. Moving on.

    I really don't think it's possible for Schaub to be slower or less athletic. I'm still not sure why they can't stick a couple of pins in his foot and send him back out there for the playoffs.

    This topic will continue to be discussed. Locking threads won't stop that. Schaub has missed "significant" time in 3 of his 5 seasons in Houston. Injury prone? No, there are good reasons why Schaub has gone down. Brittle? Well, he ain't Brett Favre. But, you're right in that Matt has played through some injuries. Call me crazy, but I haven't given up hope that Schaub returns for the playoffs.

    This is one of those threads where I hope to god the players don't waste their time on these boards.

    I guess it serves the purpose of letting posters expose themselves.

    The Texans are no strangers to this injury. Earlier this season Dom Barber was lost for the season with a lisfranc fracture. Mike Brisiel missed most of the 2009 season with a similar injury as did Texans safety Glenn Earl in 2007.

    (((((((((((((((((((((
    In this article in the Houston Texan Examiner by Alan Burge, turns out Matts injury is nothing new for the Texans.
    Good news here is that while I remember the problems Brisiel had and that he was out most of that year, I guess he's totally recoverd now and is playing better than ever these days.

    If you're actually being honest, you'd have to say that schaub is getting old, brittle, and his skills are fading (nothing like he was last year in terms of accuracy).

    We might get another 2 years from him, but still need to keep drafting QB's to groom in his stead..

    I do not think Schaub is injury prone at all. I fully believe the problem is he has balls of steel. Schaub will stand in the pocket when anyone in their right mind would have ran by then and throw a pass as he takes a huge shot.

    For example, if you watched the game last night, pay attention to Rodgers in the pocket. He has a great sense of when it is coming, and when he needs to move. It is not that Schaub does not know this, it is that he is not very mobile and knows his only hope is to stand in there and deliver. There have been people (I think it was profootball focus' rankings, but might have been elsewhere - it has been awhile) who have started to notice this too. I really believe Schaub takes some of the hardest hits you will see a QB take.

    He is 30 years old, not at all old for a qb. Check out his starts for yourself.

    2 years ago, I would have been on board with this thread. I was as critical of his ability to stay healthy as anyone. The fact of the matter now is that he hasn't missed a game since the 2008 season.

    Now, I think that the "Schaub is injury prone take" is a busted myth.


    You can make a better case for the 2 quotes here than you can for Schaub.

    Instead of attacking Schuab , use your energy to get behind Leinert! He needs all positive energy! Stars were made like this! This is still our year !
