    Does not suck! We were just talking about how great our offense was last week. He got hurt made a bad INT, he did not look that bad at all!

    I agree that he doesn't suck, disagree that he didn't look bad today. That pass to Leach should've been an easy six but he shorted it horribly.

    He tried to throw it but he didn't have his leg drive to get it there since his knee was messed up. He made the right decision but due to his knee he couldn't get it done, compare that to Sage's int.

    He doesnt suck he just has trouble against the better D's of the league, and stronger opposition

    Yeah so if you can't make the throw then don't throw it. I know he was hurt so he should've played it safe. I'm tired of our QB's attempting risky plays that end up giving the opponent the ball.

    Thats exactly the problem. We can't count on him to stay healthy like we can't count on Sage to win the game with a 17 point lead with 5 minutes left. We have no QBs, just a bunch of chumps.

    I am going to really hate using another draft pick on a QB.... which will probably bust like every other QB we had.

    No, he sucks. If we're measuring Schaub by what he does against the Detroit or Cincinnati, then we need to adjust our priorities. When Schaub faces a good defense like Minnesota or Tennessee, he coughs up the ball 3 times. He sucks.

    And I'm off the Sage wagon as well. It looks like we have two backups for starters. One of these two will have to make a big step forward or we'll have to bring in some serious competition for them over the off season.

    Never said he "sucks" or he's "great"......he's probably somewhere inbetween, but it doesn't matter, becuase one thing I have said is..

    HE CAN'T STAY HEALTHY, so it really doesn't matter what the hell he is....it's "where he is", and that's on the sideline.

    Matt is good yes but Can he stay upright ***NO*** Thus hes damanged goods just like Green

    A damanged goods needs to be shown the back door

    Carr stayed here for 5 years becasue at least he could stay healthy

    if this keeps going maybe Matty will have 3 years

    Here is a new brilliant idea: Give him some protection!!!!

    Its his fault that he cant stay healthy because he gets sacked?
    No.

    Every QB in this league gets sacked so that's not really a valid argument.

    Could it be just plain bad luck....yes, but Houston did give up some of the fewest sack totals last season and he was still in and out of the lineup with injuries.......when on the flip side (hate to say this) you have somebody like David Carr who got piledrived into the ground every other passing play, but he kept getting up. Carr was durable.......about the only thing he had going for him.

    IMO hes got protection

    Winston a pretty good vet

    Brown a up and coming rookie

    maybe a new center would be good i agree with u there

    Fragile Mattie

    Can't take a hit
    seems generally affraid of defenses at times
    can't stay healthy

    At the end of the day Matt is basically Daunte Culpepper:

    A mediocre QB that looks good because he has the best WR in the NFL to throw to

    Every QB gets sacked as much as Schaub

    Not a chance

    Both our tackles got beat like a drum all day long. God, did you see Ray Edwards(who?) abused Winston and threw him down like a rag doll in the 1st quarter. The inside protection wasn't any better either.

    Big Ben gets sacked alot more and he isn't begging his coach to pull him from games.

    Matt has laid on the field in a heap from a nudge before

    thats true i think we deff need to Get a new Center and tackle

    and this hurts me to say this but our TE OD needs to stop playing WR he needs to block more now and help our QB stay alive

    we will just live and die on are WR is guess

    heck even Leech needs to pass rush block and let slaton fend for himself LOL
