    Probably the best move for the team, say you rush Schaub back to play in the first playoff game, how the hell can you start him over the guy who's managed to get your team over the line, given that he's going to be rusty as hell and probably not 100% healthy?

    This means no Schaub in the post season either.

    The dude's Wikipedia page has already been updated showing him as a member of the Houston Texans!

    Good grief! Do some people sit around all day and automatically update Wiki pages, or something?

    Given what Cloak had said, he won't be ready to play until well AFTER the season is over.

    I'm trying to figure out why we signed Clemens though. Seems to me as the one that needed the most work. At least Matt L. can know now that if he plays well, he's also going to get to play in the playoffs.

    John Clayton said Clemens to be QB2, but I think it would be more likely that the report Mojoman posted (Stating Yates is QB2 and Clemens QB3) is more reliable.

    Makes more sense, obviously, to have Yates as QB2 until Clemens grasps our own playcalls. The system is the same, but the terminology is different.

    I think Clayton was saying Orton will make a bit over $2 million with whatever new team he signs with. I am assuming the salary cap played a bit of a factor in not pursuing Orton.

    We've got a QB3 now, so let's hope Leinart handles the offense well enough AND that QB2 and QB3 do not have to hit the field unless it's garbage time.

    Why? He's the guy that spent the pre-season in Washington and so he's got a head-start on our system over the rest of the guys.

    Clements seemed to me like the guy with the most outside shot. I wouldn't be surprised if we sign him to the PS.

    Who did the Redskins have such that they cut Clemens?

    Cloak ain't been wrong from a medical standpoint, but this designation removes any doubt.

    Yeah, isn't there like almost a full year involved? Seems like that's what I heard.

    Texans need to go QB in round 1, period. I don't care if you think you get a guy in round 2. You go round 1 to make sure you get a round 2 (or later) guy.

    With this defense, with this offense, and with Schaub being gone for a long, long time...you need to identify a college QB you think can be the future here. This isn't a Matt Schaub "Hate Parade" here, it's just common sense and logic.

    Leinart could become Tom Brady, Jr. for all I care...but he can get hurt just like Schaub did. Poof, Leinart's gone. What do you do THEN?

    Do you therefore go find Kellen Clemens-type street free agents??? No way, Jose.

    Draft him, and draft early. He doesn't have to be Superman...he just needs to have the stuff Kubiak likes to see in his QBs.

    I would've picked up Chase Clement for the story, didn't he go to Rice?

    I mean whoever is the 3rd QB getting signed 11 weeks into the season...if they're getting meaningful snaps we're toast anyway. Same for Kellen Clemens. If he's really about to oust TJ Yates back to the scout team then ol' boy needs to be cut anyway. Depth is for players who actually have a shot at being successful, much like Leinart.
