Texans now in big trouble

This was the year. No more teasing by the Houston Texans.

They were for real.

I actually thought they had a chance to be the top seed in the AFC. But then we get news Monday that quarterback Matt Schaub might be lost for the year with a foot injury.

If that's true, what does that do to the Texans? It means Matt Leinart is in. It doesn't mean they are dead, but you can pretty much put those Super Bowl dreams to the side.

This Texans team, built around the running game and the league's top defense, will still have enough to win the weak AFC South. They will get to their first postseason party.

It just won't last long, though, without Schaub.

I think Leinart has matured to the point where he will be good enough. But in the playoffs, it becomes about the quarterback.

Tom Brady or Leinart? Ben Roethlisberger or Leinart? Carson Palmer or Leinart?

Losing Schaub is a hit to an organization that finally seemed to shake free of the jinx that had plagued it since joining the NFL.

It's too bad. This year, they looked like they were for real.

Whatever happened to TEAM?

Some of you guys make me sick. There isn't a team in the NFL that lives or dies due to one man. Schaub has talent but is only as good as his offensive line allows him to become. I look for the TEAM to step it up and Leinart to do okay. How far they get nobody knows til the fat broads sing. Let's back it off a bit though folks and give the TEAM some respect. They deserve it!

Texans now in big trouble

I'm not a big fan of Farve's, but with such limited choices, it might not be a bad call.  I am not worried about getting in the PO's, I am worried about what happens when we get there.  The really bad news for me- I was convienced this was the best team in the AFC and Friday I bet $3000 at 12-1 they win the SB- I really liked the bet, but not very happy about it now- Go Texans and whomever plays QB !!

Texans now in big trouble

Alright! My boy Matt Leinart finally getting a shot to show what he can do! No one gave him a second thought after the shine wore off in Arizona and now he's in control of the offense of a team poised to win their division for the first time since the Oilers days. Should be interesting if nothing else.

Texans now in big trouble

Brett Favre is always out there.  Seriously though, hate to see this happened because I like the Texans.  Have liked them for awhile now.  They have looked like the class of the AFC but now they just took a huge blow.  I still think they win that division though, unless the Titans can make a run.  This is probably good news for teams like the Steelers, Ravens, Patriots, Jets, Bengals, and whoever is in the AFC playoff hunt because the best team so far in the AFC just lost their qb. Still think they can make a run at the playoffs because Foster and Tate are both beasts.
