But barring injury, Schaub is our guy next year.
I quite like T.J. Yates, I think he has potential. I've never liked Schaub, I always thought he was an average at best QB. He just doesn't seem to have "it", that killer instinct to just take over and shine in big games. He sucks in big games, I have zero faith in him coming up big in the playoffs.
Yeah I know Schaub isn't the only reason you guys choked away homefield. I think Cushing going down has been hurting you guys a lot, at least more than I thought it would. I would've never expected the Texans defense to regress as the season progressed like it has. You guys have dealt with injuries on the defensive side of the ball, but I figured with Wade Phillips as the coordinator that you guys would be able to overcome them. The season isn't over for you guys, but going into the playoffs with your confidence low isn't a great recipe for success.
