    I don't know whether to be glad or mad. I'm playing Sage instead of MS on my FF team this week. I NEED TO WIN to win my division. Regardless, I'm in the playoffs so I guess it really does not matter. Sage has already cost me two games. Might do better without a QB.

    Are you allowed to go without a QB?

    Does this mean the QB is NOT going to be throwing to the other team?

    I'm all for that.

    sage has already shown hes not our guy long term... we need to find out if matt is and that means playing as many games as possible this season

    No way he plays on Monday. They just want to make JAX prep for him.

    Just sort of like how they were kind of cagey about Andre Johnson maybe playing against the Colts last year the week after he hurt his knee. Even though he was hobbling around in a brace.

    Given Kubiak's comments, I wouldn't be surprised if Schaub is still in street clothes.

    I am happier hearing the reports saying that Slaton feels fine.

    Schaub would ask Kubiak to play if he caught the bird flu.

    damn...I am glad people are now going to give Schaub a shot.....it got very old listening to everyone whine about how much better Sage is than Schaub.....I guess this little stretch of having Rosenfels as qb made everyone realize that we had it much better with Schaub in the game.

    Houston, again.
    Just part of the chess game that goes on being an NFL head coach. The most that Matt will be is the back up. If Rosenfail really screws the pooch, maybe he gets in, but I doubt it. (not that Rosenfail would screw the pooch mind you)

    My feelings are that if this is not a statement of intended deception, and Schaub is allowed to return this early and takes any direct shot to his knee, we will be quickly looking for his personalized stretcher.............and likely a major new QB investment for next year.

    there is no way matt is playing this monday maybe to backup sage if he screws up

    thats only if hes 100% if not he might just be a third stringer for just one game

    After reading the quotes from Schaub and seeing the video from the team site Matt seems to be legitimately optimistic about playing Monday. 2-4 weeks was the timetable from the beginning, its been 3, am I the only one who thinks its not so crazy for him to suit up and play this week?

    As far as the injury is concerned, wasn't the ligament torn? What is going to change and make it more safe to play next week or the week after? If the danger is to the remaining ligaments in the knee won't a brace stabilize those?

    Maybe I'm just desperate for some better play from the QB positions but I'd like to see him play on Monday. He needs more game experience in the worst way and it would be nice to see him play through pain.

    LOL! Sad, but true.

    I hope he returns. Our first game on MNF would be nice to win, and I think we have a better chance with MS behind center.

    To me, when all is said and done I look and see the same result. When Jeff Garcia was looking for a job I thought we should go after him. Sage, Schaub = what's the difference?

    schaub doesnt make nearly as many boneheaded throws... usually his turnovers resulted (bar miami) from pressure from very good defenses
