    Matt Schaub? Big Bad Bust! Sage Rosenfels? Well, he has seven turnovers in seven quarters of play this year to go along with that Texas-sized meltdown against the Colts in week four. Sprinkle some sage on that Texan fan.

    This great city has been without a legit quarterback since 1993 when Warren Moon led the Houston Oilers to 12-4 with an AFC Central title before he was traded off to the Minnesota Vikings.

    What's the deal? Why can't Houston get a GM in here who knows how to find a quarterback? Look around the NFL. There are quarterbacks around this league that came out of nowhere and Houston can't catch a break.

    Dallas has Tony Romo, a two-time Pro Bowler who went undrafted. Atlanta and Baltimore have two rookie's starting, Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco and both teams are 6-3 and in the playoff hunt. Arizona has a former grocery sacker, 37-year old Kurt Warner who has his team in first place. Chicago and Minnesota have Kyle Orton and Gus Frerotte, both known as backups but both have their teams tied for first place and Houston looks clueless at the position.

    The Texans need a makeover from head-to-toe and it needs to start at the quarterback position. The Texans need someone that can lead this team, get them fired up and someone who can lead a comeback or put a game away when needed. Until that happens, here's to dreaming of Warren Moon wrecking havoc on NFL defenses.

    Notes: Since Moon left the quarterback reigns in Houston, no Houston quarterback, Oilers or Texans, has led his team to a record over .500.

    Houston did have Steve McNair for a couple of seasons before the Oilers bolted. But they also started scrubs like Bucky Richardson, Chris Chandler, and Billy Joe Tolliver.

    Wow, what a shallow uninformed piece. Is this an actual article or a DaDakota post? (ZING!!!)

    At the risk of sounding like Ric, does this guy actually WATCH the games?? Sounds like he's just repeating what the guy next to him in the elevator said this morning.

    What will his next piece be, an article about how the Texans need a cornerback like Chris Dishman?

    Warren is currently doing color commentary for the Seahawks radio.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Seattle fans are calling for Moon to come out of retirement, too. Heck, the Seahawks QB situation might be worse than ours.

    If we can have an offensive line like Mike Munchak and Bruce Matthews that would be great too! We still need some talent at both lines, but it's the same old story... Having our QB's sacked will not make them successful.

    We should seriously have open tryouts. Texas-Tech style.

    Whoever we pick out from the stands can't be any worse. Perhaps we can pick out some O-linemen from the stands as well :)

    If I were a GM I think I'd be tempted to draft a QB every year. The position is so important and projecting success is so uncertain that you have to throw a broad net...
