    That's a shame because I want to see Leinart play. I don't really think he'll be better than Schaub has been, it's just morbid curiosity at this point. I confess to a slight hope that the offense might catch a spark off of a different QB who hasn't been knocked around as much and isn't used to playing with the starters.

    That makes one of us. I want no part of Leinart. If this board thinks Schaub has a weak arm wtf are they going to say when 99.9% of the passes go to the RB's with Leinart in there.

    99.5% of our passes now go to RB's/TE's.

    You must have been napping when Schaub threw that pass into the EZ to JJ ?
    But just for the record, isn't that what a WCO is supposed to do, throw a ton of short passes ? And no I'm not saying for a minute that Schaub has a strong arm.
    Schaub didn't play badly yesterday, certainly better than the Raider game.
    But we take a huge step-down with Leinert in @ QB instead of Schaub.

    No, No and NO. There is a reason why he is a backup QB, and a reason why no other team really wanted him in the offseason.

    yeah, i notice too that all the VY fan boys are in hiding after their guy nearly blew the game for the eagles in just 2 damn plays.

    1st play...hand off to McCoy for a couple of yards.

    2nd play....interception.

    absolutely terrible pass, couldn't imagine what he saw to make him throw that ball. dude was no where near open.

    Well, can he actually hit those RB's or is he just going to throw at their feet like Schaub does half the time?

    A quick run around highlight videos for Leinart shows me a guy who doesn't appear to have that much worse an arm than Schaub. Matt's not making good decisions and hasn't been for a while. Maybe it's time he sat down, got healthy, and got his head straight. Even Warren Moon got benched for Cody Carlson when his game was kind of all over the place.

    We throw a bunch of stuff to TE's and RB's anyway. Our one healthy deep threat only catches the ball every third Sunday and when AJ gets back it isn't like he's going to miss being hit in stride all the time. He's been coming back for balls since he entered the league.

    That's an assumption you're making since you've never seen Leinart play here outside of preseason with the 2's, 3,s and scrubs. Schaub has been playing erratically for over a year. Shake the friggin tree and see what happens. What's the worst that can come of it? Another .500 record? Maybe a 6-10? It's not like we don't usually get that from a Schaub led Texans team.

    Ive lost confidence in Schaub too .... He doesnt have the big arm , throws a lot of bad - inaccurate balls , plays softer than Charmin. It seems to me he's playing not to get hurt .... How many times have we seen him fold up into the fetal position before contact rather than trying to make a damn play ....


    Dude just plays like he's scared to make a mistake ..... He's the Anti-Favre.

    Whoa.... hold on right there, It's not that bad.

    He's gone down after questionable contact (like Seymour one handing him to the ground), but the guy has taken some pretty good smacks too.

    There are a lot of things wrong with the man's game, we don't need to make shit up.

    When Manning takes a dive, we call it smart, not so much if Schaub does it???? c'mon man.

    I agree with you. Throwing a pic 6 to end a game, throwing an INT to a defensive lineman, can't complete a pass in the second half, underthrowing balls, over throwing balls, mental break downs in the red zone, we really don't need to make things up.

    I think I looked up Schaub's stat against the division and he is 6-11. I hope we start someone other than him to give us a chance.

    Whoa, Hold on....

    I've been one of Shamwow's harshest critics, but are we really talking about replacing him? This season?

    Kubiak's wagon is hitched to shammy. This season is still alive. I don't think I'm ready or willing to come to the conclusion that we need to bench or trade our starting QB.

    He has not been good. He has played below what I think he should have in just about every game this year. But this past game he wasn't terrible. He did some things wrong and pissed me off a few times, but overall he didn't cost us the game.

    He didn't do anything special to put us over the top, but he played ok.

    If I were the Texans and I made the play-offs this year I'd seriously be looking at drafting a QB with physical tools pretty high in the draft...About the 3rd round. Special players at the qb position are hard to come by, but if you find one you should always have a pretty good team. Shammy is not special. But he doesn't completely suck to the point where we should be trying to replace him in the middle of the season when we have our most legit chance at making the play-offs ever.

    One of the most common causes of hip pain are herniated disc back problems, referring pain to the hip and buttocks areas. During the game, I commented that he seemed to have incurred a back injury in that he was in a kneeling bent forward position, an exercise used to try to stretch the back. I'd be surprised if that "hip MRI" does not also focus it's attention to the lumbar/sacral vertebral areas. The way Schaub was hit on so many plays so that his body folded somewhat sideways, you've got to think of a possible disc injury.

    I know Kubes is the QB guru and all, but I have yet to be impressed with the backups he's hand-picked. The thought of using Leinart doesn't fill me with confidence.

    Schaub's body language was awful yesterday. I think "gimpy" is an understatement when watching him move. A few hard knocks in Nashville and I'm not sure if he can last the season.

    What QB has Kubiak coached that tore up the league and won a bunch of games other than John Elway? Heck, the Broncos only won ONE playoff game after Elway retired.

    The crap he was pulling yesterday would make the Duke basketball team proud. Every time he got touched he'd go down like someone torpedoed his knees.

    He's also patented the "head grab." When it happened in NOLA I couldn't tell if he was acting, but he's pulled the same move in every game since.

    It's embarrassing. I don't like to cheer for those kinds of players.
