    From the Chron's Texans FanBlog.

    I know it's a pretty big reach. Especially since there is nothing about this on the CNNSI or ESPN sites and he doesn't give any quotes from anywhere else.

    Wow! Depends on what the Falcons are asking for him. Still think he'd cost us too much in terms of draft picks.

    Somebody please explain to me why Matt Schaub is so coveted by most teams as a highly regarded potential starting QB. I have never seen him play and don't remember his college career.

    I've heard that they want a 1st and 3rd conditional. I doubt that they'll get it.

    I've seen him play once last year against the Eagles (the last game of the season.) Vick got knocked out of the game for a series, then the ball suddenly started moving. It was like night and day. I made sure to keep an eye on him because I'd heard so much about him on this board.

    Matt Schuab had a great college career. I got to watch him play alot (ACC fan here). You would have probobly heard more about him except he played in the same conference at the same time at Philip Rivers, and all eyes were on Rivers. They actually have similar attributes, and i think Matt would be just as good as philip(and im a NC state fan). If we got him that would be outstanding IMO.

    I'm not that shocked they are pursuing him (if they are). I believe this staff is going to leave no stone unturned in its quest to get a legit QB to play for this team. I think the compensation will likely be too high, but I am sure they have talked about it.

    It's common when blogging to include a link to a story that's being referenced (just as it is here on our message board). I know Texans Chick did when she was the blogger at the Chronic. Not a real good job by this fan blogger.

    BTW, here's what Bucky Brooks of SI.com had to say regarding Schaub:

    Matt Schaub would look like the second coming of Payton here in Houston as well compared to you know who.......:winky:

    I think he is coveted so much because it is next to impossible to find a quarterback under 30 that has good potential in this league. There are just a lot of bad qb's floating around the nfl at this point in time.

    Why? The same reason Sage is coveted on this message board. A few good starts/appearances & the back up QB is always the fans favorite player, that is unless your the colts or patriots................. or Saints.

    Classic Pocket Passer?

    I don't get it. I don't see where anybody makes the connection that this is what Houston is looking for.

    If we wanted a classic pocket passer Bledsoe is already out there for free.

    ositives: Matt Schaub has terrific size, strength, and a decent arm. He is an accurate passer (especially underneath) has a good release, and leads his receivers well. He has the ability to find the second receiver and he reads defenses well.
    Negatives: His footwork is inconsistent, but can be polished with good coaching. He lacks speed and mobility, and will not buy much time with his feet. He does not throw well on the run. Strictly a pocket passer.

    I dunno, but the Texans would have to move away from the WCO if they picked up this QB - "He lacks speed and mobility, and will not buy much time with his feet. He does not throw well on the run. Strictly a pocket passer."
    Kinda shoots this rumor full of holes.
