Should the Houston Texans think about keeping Matt Schaub?


John McClain of the Houston Chronicle had a very interesting comment on Twitter Thursday afternoon when tweeted the following about Matt Schaub:

I like how McClain said he would be stunned, and I would have to agree with him. Unless Schaub is the starter for this team in 2014, which I highly doubt he would be, then the Texans just need to cut ties with him and each side move on.

The QB situation will be completely different next year, as as McClain also tweeted on Thursday, how he thinks the team could do the following:

That would be another smart move, and if that would happen my thought would be to draft defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the No. 1 overall pick, and go after another quarterback in the second round at selection No. 33, as there will still be some talent to work with at that spot.

Whatever the Texans do I just don’t see a scenario where Schaub staying with the team in 2014 and beyond would be beneficial to anyone in the organization from here on out.

Schaub needs to move onto another team next season and see how it all works out for him, while the Texans could possibly cut ties with all three QBs on the roster from last season, including Case Keenum and T.J. Yates.

It could happen and I wouldn’t be completely against that idea either.

    I think Keenum should get another look..He is a winner..Yes I know, we all know he went 0-8 last year..But its not like Kubiak set him up to succeed…If O’brien is the QB guru like everyone said about Kubiak then I really think he could get Keenum rolling…

      I totally agree. It’s far too soon to pass on Keenum. He just has too much potential and was dropped into such a volatile situation right out of the gates to make a total judgment. O’Brien should be able to mold him into a star, even if he’s our backup. But please, if anyone in the Texans organization is holding a candle for Schaub, he is kidding himself.
