So when a top 10 QB like Houston Texans Matt Schaub is injury prone, you get a good back up such as QB Matt Leinart, as insurance, in case your starter goes down for the season. So what do you do if you insurance goes down for the season? Is it time to panic?
So it is safe to say that, the word ‘luck’, is not one to associate with the Texans. We seemed lucky when the AFC South fell apart and Peyton Manning went down, but it all went down hill from there.
First RB Arian Foster was hurt, then he came back and then WR Andre Johnson went down, once it seemed like Andre was healthy and it looked like the Texans were Super Bowl bound, Schaub went down. After Leinart’s TD against the Jacksonville Jaguars today, many said to ourselves that the Texans can do this, but to our dismay Leinart appeared to have broken his collarbone a few plays later.
T.J. Yates played two quarters and did not turn over the ball, but he was unable to convert a third down. We signed QB Kellen Clemens but clearly the Texans need more. So who is the answer? It looks like we are going to make the playoffs due to our RBs and defense. Other than that the Texan’s future looks quite grim. We can only hope for the best, and expect the worst.
