simple poll on what everyone thinks of the Schaub trade and why they may like or dislike this move
"Tommy likey...tommy want wingy"
He was the best available alternative to Carr.
I am a Carr fan but he seemed to lose the faith of the team which is enough for me to say goodbye, have a nice career with the Raiders. Hope to beat you in the playoffs sometime.
No I don't like the trade (conditionally). We paid to much with 2 2nd round picks going to Atlanta. Unless we can pick up a 2nd round for Carr this year and next, but I do not believe Carr will bring this type of offer. IMHO.
yes i like it, or yes i dislike it
I would have to answer yes to that question.
He is better than Jesus Rosenfelds. If we would have already moved Carr, I would say that the trade was a good thing. It is not a good thing for giving up two #2 picks. That's too steep a price to pay for a three year backup.
I would have preferred to play Carr or Rosenfels for another year and draft and groom our own QB.
Before you reply that Schaub has three years experience and would be better than drafting an unproven rookie....Schaub has proven nothing yet, and Carr and Rosenfels also have NFL experience.
Without doing the research I would imagine there have been more failures than success stories when trading for someone else's backup QB.
We paid too much.
The Texans are still my team and I will support Schaub as staunchly as I have been supporting Carr.
Carr and the Texans will both be better off now. But the fact remains that Carr never had a chance to succeed here. I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up.
Wonder who will be the first here to display a fire Schaub avatar?
Now that would make for a good thread.
Here's to Schaub making the pro bowl next year.
I like it. We needed a change of QB and Carr needed a change of scenery.
As far as the draft picks goes...I have a feeling we'll be trading down further in the first and recouping picks in the process. there's a lot of time left before the second round of the NFL draft.
I love this trade. I still think that if Carr can get his head together he may do well, but not in Houston.
I welcome Matt Schaub with open arms.
i got to see a ton of matt schaub while he played at virginia. statistically, schaub was their version of philip rivers. he's accurate, heady, and has good size. i would've loved for him to land with the panthers, but i am happy for him anyways.
Carr will excel wherever he goes, and I understand the bad blood between Carr and Houston. However, unless they find a way to recoup the picks they gave up for Schaub, I think this was a bad deal. The major areas that need to be improved are offensive line, defensive line, and defensive secondary. This doesn't fix any of those, but we just took away a couple of chances to fix those problems.
Need another button - I don't know yet.
I'm waffling on this one. Just haven't made up my mind.
This is a bold move that had to be made. The fans screamed to get rid of carr, and what else could the FO do? Draft another pretty boy first rounder that we cant afford, who will immediately be compared to david? Trade for the rights to a retired player?
This was the best QB prospect available, the fans wanted a new QB, Rick Smith made the deal. And it was steep but I beleive it will work.
THE ERA OF MATTITUDE HAS ARRIVED!!
They could have just drafted Vince Young, but that probably made too much sense...
Ecstatic over it.
I said yes with a Astrix. If they trade Carr and try hard to get at lease a 3rd round pick and than trade down and get some extra picks fingers cross maybe a 2nd in the trade down than yes it would be a homerun. Boy these guys are really showing that they are trying to get this team to were it should be by now. Do not underestimate Kubes and Smith.
I voted NO!
Listining to the commentary about this trade,people are saying why?
He's less mobile than Carr, you don't even know what he's capable of. He's too unknown. No wins, 6 TD's and 6 int's.
I said it before however, that I will bow to the decisions made by the FO and coaching and I'm a man of my word. Welcome to Houston Matt Schaub.
Yes, I don't like it!!!! Schaub might be good, but the price is too high at first glance.
