    all depends on what the alternative to Schaub is

    Big year for Schaub. I like him as a QB but he is coming off a serious injury so no need for the Texans to give him an extension right now. Besides, I think the Texans need to lock up Duane Brown and Connor Barwin before they hit the market next year as UFAs.

    I agree, the Texans have some big decisions next year.

    Locking in Schuab would scare me if it was structured like MLB/NBA but with contracts not guaranteed they need to do what it takes to bring him back....

    Hahah Touchay... I don't think Schaub will be back after this upcoming season...


    he probably will demand too much $ after leading us to the Superbowl:grin::grin:

    They love Schaub but if he sustains a serious injury I expect the stick with TJ as the starter. It takes a while to learn the offense and TJ has shown he is worth taking the job. Otherwise, they stick with Schaub and work out a contract they can afford.

    After the Texas win the next 7 Superbowls, 2 with Schaub and 5 with Yates, then we can revisit this. However, for now Schaub is clearly better, but it's nice to have TJ just in case.

    Only one factor that counts: Can he stay healthy?

    If he has another productive year, I don't see how the Texans don't bring him back. QB position is the one position they shouldn't skimp out on.

    Come on man, do you really believe that at this point in time that Yates is a better QB than Schaub? Either you're not being serious or you don't watch much football.

    I honestly don't see TJ Yates as the QB for the future. From what I saw he had an average arm, made bad reads, and would just chunk it up to the secondary and hope Andre would come down with it from time to time. He still has time, but I don't see him being more then a game manager. The Texans offense didn't look as smooth with Yates behind center then it did with Schaub.

    Uh, considering he was a rookie at the hardest position to acclimate to in sports, I don't think that's much of an indictment against T.J.
