    Well said... its about time we got a QB with a good head on his shoulders.

    How do you like my math?

    8 + 80 = "10" (perfect score)

    Wow, the Defense usually was always in a tough position with Carr. It wasn't his fault O.D. fumbled the ball, yet he still apologized for the bad platy for the whole offense...

    Like Carr said "Let somebody else do it."

    Yeah really...

    Half of them would agree, since they knew Schaub was the real deal.

    The other half is still under the delusion that Michael Vick will return to the NFL at some point.

    I was trying to get at the fact that it would remind them that they let Schaub go and he is proving to be the real deal, while they could really do with him as there starting qb right now.

    Shouldn't it be 8 + 80 = 6 (TD)

    Folks. That article is a good sign this team will be the real deal for years to come. This team believes in and plays for each other like a band of brothers. That is what the great teams do.

    Start up the bandwagon bus. Its time to get it going!

    no problem, man. it doesnt matter when you got on board, it just matters that you got on board.

    schaub has been far from perfect, but he doesn't need to be perfect. he just needs to compete and play to win. something the former guy just never gave a crap about.

    yesterday's game was the best I have felt about a Houston football team victory since the Christmas Eve Oilers victory over the Steve Young and the 49ers in Candlestick Park back during our miraculous run under Buddy Ryan's defense. The victory over CAR was just one big happy pill for me.

    I <3 the Texans

    Just as there are those out there amongst us, on this board, that are delusional that David Carr is a NFL caliber QB.

    I don't know man. I feel most have come to the realization that they were wrong. the others who are too stupid or stubborn to admit they were wrong have moved on to the Panthers message board because they were never real Texans fans to begin with. Other than Caddy, I can't think of any other poster that remains that is still deluded enough to think Carr is anything other than a very bad NFL QB with nice hair.

    Exactly... I know it wasn't all Carr, but as the trigger man, the face of the franchise, the freakin QB, he has to be willing to take on the faults of others as his own.

    That's quiet leadership, going over to the defense, saying "Hey, we screwed up, but we'll make it right."

    accountabillity.... that's what we've been missing.

    Well, David was always blaming the O'Line(sure, he never said it, but you could tell by what he did with the ball), and our OL(McKinney especially) was always trying to shoulder that responsibility.

    You bring up a good point! Your approach to the equation is fairly straight forwarded and I like that. I do see, however, that all though the values you used in your equation will reach a result - there is one more value to consider which could make a big difference in certain instances. This value is a contributing factor to the first two that we have all ready discussed but ALWAYS has the potential to be used as an augmentation to a OL matrix to achieve a different result (see "B")

    A. (8) + (80) = 6 + (3) = 7

    I think you will agree, this equation is fully answered.
    ======================================================
    B. [(80 + 74 + 69 + 44 + 76 + 30 + 70 + 73 + 81 + 83) + 8
    ] = Potential 6

    If we augment (3) into the matrix, we have a good change of obtaining an immediate result - although not a high of a result as we fans may like:

    [(80 + 74 + 69 + 44 + 76 + 30 + 70 + 73 + 81 + 83) + 8
    ] + (3) = 3 (FG)

    lol Thoughts?

    Well said. Carr use to pee me of so much that I would just turn the TV off. It hurt to see the team try to pull things together and not have good solid leadership to show them the way. Schaub is heaven sent, thats all i can say. He shows compassion, character, and strength to the team. Some may say that it was nothing for him to take the blame for the bad play but the team as a whole found a new respect for him as a result.

    One thing I keep hearing over and over again is "we believe in ourselves". The press kept asking "what did you do different" and the answer was the same every time - nothing. I really think this may be a result of Schaub's leadership - showing though.

    A team united will not be divided but unification will never be achieved without quality leadership.

    I'm guessing that you'd have a hard time finding those who complained about giving up a couple of second-rounders for this truly superb QB.
