Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said on Wednesday the starting quarterback for the team is still a week-to-week decision.

In an article on the official Houston Texans web site, Deepi Sidhu wrote,

"“Could Matt Schaub still return this season as the Texans’ starting quarterback? It’s a possibility, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.”"

The article quoted Kubiak, saying:

"“I’m going to keep going week-to-week. Matt’s working really hard. I know Matt wants back on the field. I think Case has played really well and done a lot of good things. He has made a lot of mistakes too that he’s got to correct.”"

Grantland’s Bill Barnwell wrote an interesting piece, titled: “How the Texans Fell From Grace.” This is a MUST READ for any Texans fan.

In the article, Barnwell wrote:

"“Moves made by the organization over the past several seasons left the Texans with a series of toxic contracts, deals they’ve either had or will have to dump while assuming dead money in the process.”"

Tania Ganguill of ESPN in a article with the headline, “Texans D not much different without Reed,” wrote:

"“Opposing quarterbacks’ completion percentages and yards per attempt were slightly higher with Reed on the field.”"

At the Houston Chronicle, John McClain, in an article on Ed Reed (Texans players hate to see Reed go) said:

"“Reed should be in a good place after making $5,437,500 for starting five games and making 14 unassisted tackles. He cleared waivers and is free to negotiate with any team.”"
