    He's gettin paid like a top 10 QB .... Now he better play like one and stay on the field.

    On to getting Barwin done.

    Ugh... I dont feel good about the length of that contract. I realize it only puts him at 35, but still, just not a good feeling. Hopefully I am wrong though.

    I think Barwin is gonna wish he took the Texans offer. He has looked very average after putting on weight...

    Good news, looks as if its very lucrative to him if he stays healthy and good, and reasonable for the Texans if he doesn't. Gives us options if Yates develops into starter material in that timeframe as well.

    I really hope that the last year is a lot of backloaded salary. 15.5 million a year average is a lot for him.

    Just a gut feeling, you know? Schaub is a good QB. Arguably top 10, and I am very happy that he is on the Texans. However, I dont know if we can win a Super Bowl with him. When the pocket breaks down, the Schaub has, historically, been and trouble. And it sounds like (I could not watch the game) he has gotten even worse in this regard. This is something that will never get better.

    I am not advocating a running QB- I dont want a Vick or Young. I do want a guy, who when stuff goes down, can make plays with his feet, even if it is just buying time. Look at the last couple QBs to win a Super Bowl- Eli Manning (not a run threat, but moves well), Rodgers, Big Ben, Brees, Brady. Peyton is the only real exception here, and even that is questionable since his release was so quick.

    Like I said, Schaub is a good QB. In particular, he has probably the best play action fake in the NFL. I just dont think he can get it done without pristine protection.

    Damn 1 game and they sign him to an extension, and then Jamison gets 1 sack and an extension WTF, we played the Dolphins. Just saying

    I'm good with it. It is a bit more than I was expecting.

    So, does this mean the Texans will be looking for his replacement sometimes in the next 3 drafts? I hope so.

    Yeah... these moves were not hinged on the outcome of this game. A lot of time goes into these contracts. This was probably worked up this morning or last night.

    The guaranteed portion doesn't seem overly steep, all things considered. Here's to Schaub managing games like he did today!
