    I made some pictures for our favorite back up. Enjoy! You have to follow the links cause the pictures came out too small when I saved them. Don't worry either. None of this is spam or anything like that. Just some good pictures. Once again, enjoy and post some feedback.

    Lol in all seriousness, my friends and I were joking about how TJ was possibly treated last season, so I made those just for fun. I know they aren't the BEST meme's but him and I thought they were funny, so we hope you guys think they are funny as well.

    Ok, let's take our feelings for Schaub out of this.

    From what you saw of TJ Yates in 2011, do you think Tj has what it takes to be an NFL QB, a starter?

    I'm going on record as saying Yes, yes he has.

    He's got the arm, he's got the athleticism, he's got the necessary toughness, he's got a good head on his shoulders.

    I think the Texans are in a very good position at the QB position.

    Not yet.
    Yes, he's got arm strength but I haven't seen the precision I'd like to see at the position. Arm strength needs to be accompanied by accuracy or it's kinda useless.
    Yes, he's got the athletism (compared to Schaub anyway) but from what I've seen he hasn't developed sufficient pocket presense to know when to use it as effectively as he might.
    Toughness...? Has he really been tested in that regard? The one time (Tenn. game) he was nicked up, Kubiak yanked him.
    Yeah, he seems to have a good head on his shoulders but he still needs more experience in reading defenses, looking off defenders, and knowing when to use those legs to move the chains when his passing options aren't there.

    Can he be a starter? The raw material is there. But I think he needs a season or two (a la Aaron Rodgers) with the clipboard learning the finer points of NFL QB-ing.

    And I think he can get there. I just don't think he's there right now.

    I don't know.

    I keep hearing about this arm strength, but what I saw of his passes, especially in the playoffs, most of them were soft and floating.

    He manages the game well, now let's see some pepper.

    But I thought that was the gist of the question. Not whether he's a good to great QB, yet, but whether he's got what it takes. To me, that means the potential and attributes to do it.

    I think he's got all the tools to be a great QB in this league. Last year (and I imagine, this year), he doesn't have the experience or the knowledge. But he's got the arm strength, intelligence, accuracy, and athleticism to do it.

    With a year or two with the clipboard, I expect him to be ready to go. If he were asked to be a starter right this moment, I think he'd do OK. He'd need his team to help him out against tough opponents. Good defenses like the Ravens and Steelers are still going to be able to confuse him into making mistakes with the ball.

    I've seen the arm strength and the athleticism. I'm still waiting on the accuracy; three picks on his record and several near-picks and called back picks say, to me, accuracy isn't there yet. And I think the intelligence is likely there - he's never looked lost or clueless - so with experience he'll be less likely to be fooled by those good defenses you mentioned.

    Can't tell if an acorn will be a big oak tree unless it starts to grow. Until it does, it's just another nut. :D

    For me, his interceptions haven't been because he's been inaccurate. I think he gets the ball where he wants to it to go pretty well. I think his interceptions are generally an issue with his inexperience with reading the defenses and thinking he can sneak the ball in tight places because he trusts his arm (and his receivers) too much.

    When he was running away from the side of play and passing back to the opposite side, I was not impressed with his arm strength. And this is where you expect true arm strength to be demonstrated.
