Midseason Report Card: Quarterbacks
Patrick D. Starr
Here at the State of the Texans we give our midseason report card to each position group, we start with the Quarterbacks.
The best thing for Texans fans is that we have not see Matt Leinart or T.J. Yates in the 2011 season. Many NFL teams have had multiple quarterback taking snaps for their teams.
As for Matt Schaub he has been the scapegoat for much of the Texans offensive woes, a portion maybe, but not the whole problem.He grades out at a B- because he has taken all the snaps for the Texans and has had some good games. On the other hand he has struggled to win games by himself when needed, it would be nice for Schaub to take the team on his shoulders and lead them to victory.
Schaub currently has thrown for 2,118 yards and has completed 60.2% of his passes. More impressive is his touchdown to interception ratio, 13 tds to 5 interceptions. He has been sacked 15 times this season, and has taken a beating in some games this season. He is on pace for a big season, and possibly lead the Texans to their first division championship and playoff appearance. Keeping Schaub healthy could prove big in the home stretch of the season.
