    I like it because Kubiak/Smith decided it was best for the franchise.

    I have to say yes, but I don't know how much better he is.

    They decided Carr was better for the franchise last season and passed up 3 potentially great QBs. However I do feel a little better about this decision.

    Still undecided.

    I think at worst he will be at least as good as Carr. Problem is with what was given up to get him (those two 2nd round picks) he needs to be considerably better.

    I voted NO!

    Listining to the commentary about this trade,people are saying why?
    He's less mobile than Carr, you don't even know what he's capable of. He's too unknown. No wins, 6 TD's and 6 int's.

    I said it before however, that I will bow to the decisions made by the FO and coaching and I'm a man of my word. Welcome to Houston Matt Schaub.

    I have seen him play twice and I thought he was very mobile. I looked up the game in 2005 against the vikings (where I first became impressed by him) and he had 4 carries for 56 yards. The guy can run--he may not be michael vick, but he sure isn't drew bledsoe either.

    As for the original question, I would take Schaub over at least 1/3 of the current starting QBs in the NFL.

    Removing the picks we gave up, removing the salary questions I have related to the cap... and purely on which guy i would feel most comfortable with in getting this team to win right now... I say Schaub. We have seen Carr, we know what we will get.

    Time will tell about the picks and salary, but I am excited for the organization to move on from the expansion mentality days.

    Straight up: yes.

    We know what we have in Carr. While there is uncertaintly with Shaub, we know he has some intangibles that we've never seen from a Texans QB. Those alone make him an upgrade, IMO.

    I'm happy for Carr that he can finally get out of Houston. It will be better for everyone. Change, in this case, is very good for everyone.

    I think Schaub could play better than Carr has here, but that ain't saying much.

    You must still have some Casserly/Capers Kool aid.
    I still can't decide if I like it or not.

    HAHAHAAHAHAHAHA OOOOHHHHH SNAP!!!! I think Schaub is good but DAMN!!!! Thank you guys for the picks and the swap! We are going to make some serious additions to our roster with those...maybe even CALVIN JOHNSON!!!! I can't believe you gave up all that and then paid that guy....(6tds and 6ints 81 out of 161 passes) that kinda money!!! He is just like CARR but slower...weak arm too, so don't expect to be stretching the field with AJohnson. We(the Falcons) and our new additions(Calvin, Landry, Levi, Nelson, Bush..who knows) will see you next yr. for the beating of your life!!!

    there isn't enough evidence to say that schaub is better than carr. the only thing schaub has over carr is not having the krap kicked out of him for the past 5 years.
