    Do we have a quarterback disease here in houston ? That other guy could have done a better job in the first half . Shaub is playing as sorry as i have ever seen a quarterback play for the texans and that takes some doing . Can anyone learn to throw it away when outside the pocket ? Does AJ being in view mean that is where i am passing it even if he is covered ? What do fans need to do here in this town to get decent play from a quarterback ?

    How about not having another QB EVER wearing number 8 can be a start. It should be retired because it is like a black hole of suck that has a half life of 1,000 years.

    There's more problems than just the quarterback. He's a bright spot. The defense is terrible.

    Giving up to 2nd round picks for Schaub at the time was just a risky/bad move on Texans part.

    Nothing against Schaub, but there were and still are some big holes on this team.

    He's a bright spot? What game are you watching? I'm not down on Schaub in general, but he's made some terrible decisions today, ranging from forcing passes (like he showed a tendency to do last season) to not throwing the ball away to avoid a sack when he's outside the tackle box. The INT to #57 was absolutely a rookie mistake.

    Sorry, but given the way the defense is playing, the quarterback concerns are nothing.

    seeing as the defense can't get off the field the whole game, maybe the quarterback is an issue. if we had one that could put a drive or two together, the D could get some rest, admittedly. they would probably still not look great, but it would be better than how they look now. The quarterback is a major concern.

    Agreed, but we could have used 2 more 2nd round picks.

    Nothing against Schaub, but it just wasn't the right time for that move.

    Schaub is still the Texans QB. If you think Rosenfels could do any better with this $%$# they call blocking, then you are dreaming big time. Schaub has sucked today no doubt, but it is not all on him.

    Maybe, but the defense sucked when they were fresh.

    Outside of Schaub the biggest compliant i have is the play calling , the blocking has been ok given that we are mismatched in most places . If your behind 21 + points why are you running ?

    I still say the game would be completely different right now if the Texans were given that 4th down conversion on the opening drive. I'm not saying that the Texans would be winning this game, that would be a stretch with the way this defense has played, but it would be more respectable.

    I'm generally willing to accept that momentum plays an enormous part in the game but I must disagree with you Ryan. I think we'd be right about here whether the Texans had gone down and scored 7 on that opening drive or had failed (as they apparently did) on the conversion. I thought he had it but the ruling on the field was that they didn't and I think that Gary challenging it was a stupid thing to do. The play was a QB keeper up the middle so what kind of an "angle" did he think he was going to get that could have overturned the ruling on the field? That was just retarded of Kubiak to waste a time out challenging that call. The thing is you must be able to let something go and move on. If the Texans are so mentally fragile that one failed 4th down conversion (even if it's a bad call and they got robbed) is going to turn them into this useless mob we saw trying to play football today then they're going to be lucky to win 6 games this year.

    I think a team that plays this poorly is unprepared, lacking discipline, and poorly coached. What are the odds that we managed to go out and find approximately 50 guys who can't be coached into a system? I think they're much worse than the odds that we have people coaching them who can't get the job done. Now Alex Gibbs I think has time on his side. Whatever changes are being implemented I can see it taking a few games to get going. On the other side of the ball "Dick" is a loser who needs to go.

    Remember, Drew Brees looked like crap last year against the Titans. He had like 3 int and 1 TD or something.

    Anyways, Schuab is our guy for the rest of the year. Kubes is going to ride or die with the guy. If he doesn't perform well the rest of the year, then we're likely to see one of our top picks used on a QB of the future next draft. But I'm not ready to give up on Schuab yet, even though he was completely disappointing in this game.

    Agree completely. And we had What, like 25 yds. on the ground through three Qrts? that's inexcusable, and you're not going to have a succesful passing game with that lack of production from your running game. But, I'm not going to push the panic button yet. I think our running game will come along as the season progresses, which will take more pressure of our passing game.

    Yup. What I think people will start to zone in on more frequently is Schaub's propensity for making bad decisions in every single game. He made risky/bad decisions in every game he played last year. The difference between risky and bad is whether or not you get away with it. He got away with a few last year, especially with AJ and Andre Davis bailing him out. His development in that area will determine what type of conversation we're having at year's end about Schaub.
