    4,467 yards on the season. It looks like the only QB who will be playing 4 quarters like Schaub in the running is Big Ben who has 4,108 yards. Not bad for Schaub's first season to start a full 16 games.

    In addition, Schaub is 3rd in the NFL in completion % (68.4), tied for 5th in tds (27), and 6th in QB rating (99.1).

    I don't know what everyone else thinks but those look like franchise QB numbers to me!!! Give him a pocket to step into and a consistent running game (both would be helped by overhauling the interior OL).... Schaub can definitely play well enough for us to win any game we need :)

    I remember before this season a lot of people swearing that Schaub wouldn't hit 4000 yards this season.

    This is me laughing at them.

    It would appear that my knocks on Schaubbie Boy were a tad premature.

    In cases like this, it's good to be wrong. :)

    Yea he sucks and he's not tough at all!

    Schaub also leads the AFC in 40+ plays with 15 for the season. I love how he can get the ball down the field.

    Not bad for a QB with no arm strength....

    These stats suck. It's the coaches fault. Fire the coach.

    !!! Wow! The fact that your mind came up with that is kinda scary....

    If the offense would play for the entire game instead of just one half, Schaub would be pushing 8000 yards...

    Bah!! His numbers are inflated because we don't have a run game. Same as Peyton Manning. :polevault:

    I don't know if you're being sarcastic, but I hear that allot and just don't understand that line of thinking. The fact that we don't have a run game just makes those numbers even more impressive to me. The defense knows what's coming and still can't stop it. He's the real deal and it's time for everyone to get on the Schaub-wagon.

    Gee, this stat wouldn't have ANYthing to do with the Texans complete LACK of a running game would it?
    So, before you start laughing too hard - what were your predictions on the Texans ground game? :thinking:

    Yes. I was being sarcastic and mocking those actually believe that line of thinking.

    If we only had a running game.... We'd be talking about how many W's Schaub racked up instead of yards. Win-win.

    *golf clap*

    The most worthless 4000 yard season ever.

    To be clear, I have no problem with Schaub's play on the field. But for Manning-like numbers, they sure are worthless.

    his numbers would probably IMPROVE with a run game. look at how many go-to plays have been removed because we cant run. we're a play action team without able to truely sell the play action (something schaub's arguably the best at doing), and when's the last time we saw a bootleg?

    I remember before the season a lot of people saying that Grossman should be the starter because he put together one decent drive and scored a TD in a preseason game.

    QFT! I still lay this at the door of our coaching staff. Denver managed to plug/play any number of backs into their system and made it work...we can't. We even brought in Gibbs to mastermind and we've still failed. I understand the line injuries, but our running game has really been poor all season.

    Kudos to Schaub for what he's achieved no doubt, but I sure would have liked to see less overthrows in yesterday's game in the 2nd half. Stats are great, but if they don't equal W's, what's the point?

    They're a sign of where the team can go if it fixes its other problems. Add a running game and this team could dominate.
