    I am an Atlantan that was laughrd off the call-in radio show two years ago when I recommended on the air to start Schaub over Vick. Put Vick in the slot I had recommended. I am glad Houston has Matty and I am now a Houston fan. But remember this: All QB's will make a bad play or two. What will make you a successful franchise is STAND BEHIND YOUR QB! I promise you will be well rewarded!!!

    The timing was perfect to land Schaub. Thanks Rick and Kubes for pulling the trigger early on that trade(Thanks Mckay also). If not Atlanta still might have Schaub.

    The old regime got fleeced by the Raiders for Pukechanon, we fleeced the hell out of the Falcons for a very good QB. Thank god for a quality GM.

    Don't forget Atlanta traded Favre also!! Great track record so far. Here's to hoping Schaub outdoes Favre:whip:

    In Schaub We Trust.

    Really, I can't believe someone this good was available for trade. Since Petrino was never around Schaub, I guess he can be forgiven for making the deal. Who knew? But, the Bird's GM Rich McKay had seen Schaub over 3 seasons. What a blunder.

    Want to know something really hilarious?

    There are still some draftniks around here that still think Smith/Kubiak gave up too much to get him.

    The1ApplePie knew.

    I remember he suggested Schaub would be a good replacement for Carr sometime during last season...on the old board. Nice call Apple!

    I saw some power rankings this week that were saying that Schaub looked like a back-up QB.

    What does a guy gotta do to get some love?

    If Schaub was the qb for a larger market team like the New York Giants we'd get sick of hearing all the love he'd get.

    Hate to do this...but it's been two games. Let's not proclaim Shaub our saviour JUST yet. Give him a few more games and we'll see. Even Carr had his days. I'm not saying that I'm NOT pumped that Shaub is doing so well...it's just...we've been screwed before. Cautious optimism for me.

    It doesn't take more than a few games for me to see that Schaub is ten times the quarterback that David Carr is. He doesn't get happy feet under pressure. He is a bigger, stronger player with a prototype ( not sidearmed ) delivery, and he has the intangibles that Carr never had (confidence, respect from teammates, leadership, etc. ). I believe the Texans hit the jackpot with this guy.....

    Don't be too cautious man.....In 5 years, the Texans under Carr never put up 34 points, Andre Johnson never had a 75+ yard TD pass, and Carr never could make the same looks Scaub has been able to do. Seriously, how many times during these 2 games have you said to your self "Carr never would have made that throw or seen that guy downfield"? He may not be our savior, but I've seen more in Schaub in 2 games than I saw in Carr in 5 years.

    I was just listening to the national show on 610 , and a caller from Houston called in and I was like cool we are gonna hear something good . Instead , the guy hated on us . He said that KC is the worst team etc , and that Carolina is pretty much a one dimensional team with Jake to Steve Smith , and that they are a team on the decline . To my surprise both of the host shot right back at him and said they thought the Texans were legit , and that winning is contagious and they are calling them "The Darlings Of The NFL" . Pretty cool IMO , just thought I would pass that on . :texflag:

    Not to mention that it's the first time we've gone 2-0.
