I love my Texans. Always have and always will, through thick and thin.

BUT Schaub is a problem. He's too damn slow and too damn panicky. Get him out of the pocket and he's a goner. He also seems to be one of those who doesn't bounce back from a defeat and instead sulks more and more.

While I blame Schaub for part of the loss, I lay more blame on whoever calls the plays. You're up with 5 minutes left, all you have to do is hold on to the ball and run the clock down so WHY ARE YOU THROWING THE FU*KING BALL?

As a Seahawks fan, I was delighted with the win, but it's the first time I've seen the Texans since last year's playoffs.  I know Schaub is not going to set the world on fire (ala Tony Romo), but he is serviceable.  What struck me as bizarre was that the Texans had craptacular game planning.  They never made adjustments, and Seattle did, which was the difference.  After a quick scoring blitz, the Texans never really threatened for the next 40 minutes.  And it seemed like the Texans' D was simply told to rush the passer every play, and they kept missing their assignments, leaving Wilson to run around like a lunatic.

Very bizarre, your coaches.

Kubiak spent 3 years keeping a playoff team out of the playoffs. Then they finally made the playoffs with a Superbowl caliber team that went nowhere but barely past the Bengals for 2 years. Now they have aging talent and predictable game plans. Texans are the next Jaguars in 4 years.

Any decent franchise would've canned Kubiak 3 years ago.

Yea, that's Kubiak. He calls plays really conservative cause I doubt he has much faith in Schaub. Which is funny cause when they go hurry offense, they do really good. It's just everyone knows that it will always end disastrously cause Schaub is guaranteed to make a stupid decision.

The Texans are so much like 2012 LSU when Jarrett Lee was the QB, they may as well be wearing purple and yellow.

And as for the article, Schaub was hardly an active social network user. So whatever. All the jersey burning and 4th quarter booing is farking pathetic. Everyone is howling for T.J. Yates or FSM forbid Case Keenum. Think it can't get worse. It can get a WWWHHHHOOOOLLLLEEEE LOT worse. Everyone acts like there is a Manning, Brady or Brees just waiting around the corner. Schaub sucks but the question I always ask the loudmouths, who do you realistically replace him with?

Wouldnt a better option be to have a PR firm in co-ordination with your agent handle your twitter account? You want to tweet to your own account, send it to them via text and they will have final approval on it.

You will sound witty, engaging, or slick and likely be able to put some amount of spin on a bad outting without having to deal with all the trolls yourself, and a million times less likely to look like a whiny quitter who whines and quits all the time.

To be fair, on 3rd and 4 at the Seattle 40 with about 2 1/2 minutes to play, five yards would have been incredibly valuable to them.  Just a guess, but I'd think that increases their win probability from something like 75% to more like 98%.

3.8 yards per carry.  Just enough to maybe move into FG range, but that would be pretty long (~53 yards), and would set up Seattle in great field position if he missed.

Then punt the ball and put the pressure on Seattle having to move it all the way in 2 minutes.

Kubiak deserves just as much, if not more, blames as Schaub. The Seahawks knew their tendencies in 3rd and (not quite) short situations and had practiced defending that exact play because the playcalling is so predictable in Houston. Schaub sees Chancellor showing blitz, but can't audible to a run because Kubiak only allows him to audible 1/3 of the time, by their own admission. This is a 10 year vet and his HC won't let him audible in the face of an obviously doomed play?

That said...Schaub has to know not to throw the ball there. He has to know as soon as he sees Chancellor come up to the LOS that he CANNOT throw that pass to the flat. That's off the table because of the risk of giving up a TD return. Fall down and accept the sack. Live to fight another day. Give your (very good, BTW) defense a chance to close out the game.

Cause I'm sure everyone criticizing him could do a much better job as QB of the Texans.

IUt wasn't the throw itself that looked bad. It was the decision to throw it and the playcall that led to it. Kubiak's playcalling is so predictable in certain situations that Seattle was able to dial up a perfect defensive play because they knew Kubiak wants to throw out to the flat in those situations and that he doesn't give Schaub much freedom to audible.

I will say that in Week Two, Colin Kaepernick did an excellent job of not falling for Sherman's bait at the start of the game.  He saw Sherman lurking there and literally ran the other direction.  Of course, he would later throw the ball directly to him, but that's another matter.  What puzzles me about the Schaub play is that the safeties were well disguised...Schaub never saw Chancellor coming until he was airborne.

We can say all we want about the play call, but Schaub would have done better just to take the sack.  You don't throw at Sherman in a panic.

Whenever I see the name "Schaub" now, I mentally add the suffix "-ception" for some reason.
 
2013-10-02 02:22:53 PM
The horse collar tackle and personal foul on Baldwin didn't help the Texans either.

It was a team loss, including coaches.

Seahawks fought to the end.  Great win.
 
2013-10-02 02:27:48 PM
It is time for Schaub to retire.  Yes Case would make alot of mistakes but he can also spread the field out a heck of alot more.  What's the worse that can happen?  3 pick 6's in a row?

BTW, poor, poor millionaire with a hot wife...

That expression is so weird.  All my life, I've been something of a sports hipster: "yeah, I root for this one team, you've probably never heard of them, but they're better than you think."  The idea that they'd have a bandwagon outside Seattle, or be considered overrated in some circles, is completely foreign to me.  Now I have to be all like "I was into them before everyone else was" and "I prefer their earlier stuff," but it's not the same.

It's just a lack of critical thinking skills on his part.  In his weird-ass world, the 1984 team (12-4 overall, 5-3 in the division) was the AFC West's biatch.  Every team that doesn't win a division title is its division's biatch.  Got it?

umad is most likely getting a massive erection from the knowledge that he's trolling a few Seahawk fans. What a life he must have.
