    We were behind vs New Orleans & Oakland. I think Schaub looked good if not great in those situations.


    At the time, I was upset with him, but after rewatching the games, especially the Oakland game Schaub was balin'

    The Texans have showed us they are a good team and have finally gotten past their demons. I'm not so much worry about a melt down by the team after a loss, but a melt down by the fans in here.

    Depends on how far behind we are, the good teams keep it close so they can go for the win in the end. And that's where I have reservations about Schaub. 2 minute offense towards the end of the game needing score to win or tie, Schaub does not have a long resume. And the ones I remember are bad (Ravens last year).

    You mean the game where he lead us back from a bunch in the 4th?

    Yeah he threw the pick six in OT but don't forget the hell of a comeback.

    You have a ZBS line and Chris Meyers at center. You don't call a pass play and have your QB throwing out of the endzone in OT when your RB could pound it all day from there. That was Kubiak's fault. TERRIBLE PLAY CALL.


    TERRIBLE!

    I'll throw in that if Schaub hadn't balled in that 4th Qtr. we wouldn't have been in OT in that game.

    Whether you want to pin the blame on Schaub or Kubiak, I still am leery about the 2 minute offense late in the game to win or tie. That's one question mark that's still in my mind.

    A great performance from your QB in those situations result in W's.

    Somebody has to catch the ball.


    Leon can't do everything.

    You mean the spectacular jump ball that Andre caught? Until I see that on a more consistent basis from Schaub to a different receiver, I'm going to have to say Andre was being Andre on that exchange.

    Hey look I'm not asking for the reincarnation of John Elway, and asking Schaub to do the Drive Part III, but seeing is believing and need to see Schaub (and the Texans) be in those game situations more and coming out on top before I remove my doubts.

    Schaub is no Brady, but I think the D in year's past has made his successes a moot point and he can't make the game winning drive 3 times in the same game. Maybe he will get it done this year and it will count.

    Or the green bay Schaub that led us to a frigid winter win against a solid green bay team. He has plenty if awesome games like the TD run a few years back against Miami. Schaub has played from behind to win games and keep us in games we should have been dominated in.

    Either the majority of fans complaining are new to the team and never saw his highlight performances, or they only remember the negative things because they are harder to forget.

    Schaub is better than most fans give him credit for.

    Come on now, this is not 1 v 11 here.


    Wait until we have Schaub on the field with both Foster and AJ. Just having Manning, Brees, Rogers, or Brady on the field without weapons doesn't mean they would win those games either.

    With weapons helping the QB then it is not on one person to win the game.

    I disagree completely. That play was amazing on BOTH players' parts. Schaub showed pocket awareness and some amazing movement to buy time, and then delivered a perfect pass that ONLY his all-world WR could get.

    It makes no sense to discredit the pass based on who he was passing to. If it did, then he should be getting extra credit for making due with the receiving corps we've been working with these last few games with AJ out.

    Then he should have built up plenty of extra credit for 2007 when we had Ron Dayne running the ball for us and Schaub still had an amazing year with AJ out for half the season. All the teams knew we were passing that year and they still couldn't stop him.

    Sure I'll give Schaub credit too; 35% to him and 65% to Andre. Any other receiver Schaub throws that pass to it will be incomplete or intercepted.

    If you guys are sold on Schaub as your Captain Comeback Kid, then great but excuse me while I still hold reservation.

    99% of statistics are totally made up on the spot.

    schaub did the 2 min O well all last yr..... the D gave it up, that problem has been solved. A healthy AJ back in the mix bodes well for us even if someone does jump out in front of us. Keep in mind dude has thrown for 9000+ yrds in the last two seasons. I really don't get anyone who says schaub is not a good QB or is a potential "weak link". He might not be the best in the nfl but he is more than good enough to help us win in those situations.... THE TEXANS ARE THE MOST COMPLETE TEAM IN THE NFL!!!!!! GO TEXANS!!!! SHAKE DEM HATERS OFF!!!
