    1-5

    I thought Wade had saved Kubiak's job. Maybe not so much anymore. If anything good can come of this, hopefully its Kubiak getting fired...finally...

    I was just about to start this thread...

    I think he should do alright. He's wanted his 2nd chance to prove himself and here it is with the best team in the AFC.

    I'm just going to have to adjust my way of watching this offense with a lefty leading them down the field. Maybe he'll be our Hostetler/Brady/Reich(sorry to conjure up old shit)...

    Has the physical tools.

    Mentally? Let's hope he's matured...

    Forgot about the southpaw thing.

    That means Winston will be protecting his blind side....

    If we've learned anything about Bob McNair it's that he looks for reasons not to fire Gary.

    Losing Schaub would be that reason if the Texans suddenly collapse in his absence.

    I predict Matt Lienart will be the beneficiary of many fine women now that he gets to start for an NFL team.

    I just hope he is better than Gabbert or Painter.

    At any rate, it's time for Leinart to earn his paycheck.
    He has had plenty of time to practice with the team.
    He has always wanted a chance to show his worth.
    I'm gonna give him a chance!

    Sorry, but I just can't muster any optimism over Leinart.

    I'm crushed.

    I think the Colts have proven how important good QB play is, and this is not Gary's fault. Losing your best players for significant time is definitely not Gary's fault. But even at 9-7 (winning two more games) we win the division in my opinion. Then hopefully Schaub's back in those six weeks and we get him for the playoffs.

    We kept him for a reason. I have faith in Kubiak's choice of QB, I have faith in Lienart.....

    My bung will be puckered over the next 6 weeks. (I know you probably didn't want to know that..... )

    This is it for Matt Leinart. He either proves that all the hype coming out of college weren`t all bull*** and that he can be a NFL caliber QB - or he will forever be known as just another bust.

    He is in a perfect situation here. With a dominant defense, the leagues best running attack and one of the best O-Lines - and arguably the best receiver of the league coming back - there are no more excuses. He doesn`t have to be Aaron Rodgers - he has to be Alex Smith (the 2011 version). The next 6 game will decide the rest of his career.

    Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity
    To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
    Would you capture it, or just let it slip?

    This opportunity comes once in a lifetime...

    Kubiak held onto Orlovsky for two years. And this year it seems he's gonna be the first QB to see extensive playing time on two 0-16 teams. Color me sceptical.

    As I stated in the other thread, it depends how good Kubiak really is with QBs. If he's as good as advertised, Leinart should be okay.

    I think Leinart might take more chances than Schaub does. Let us bow our heads and pray, "Lord, please confirm Matt Leinart has matured in his short tenure as a Texan with good performance on the football field, Amen"
