So if Schaub isn't the answer at QB...who is?

I'm as disappointed as the next man at such a monumental collapse. It's not normal for a 32 year old man in the military with a family to have to remind himself through the course of the day that there is more to life than Texans football. First off, no Matt Schaub is not elite...but he's pretty damn good. He just made the Pro Bowl with arguably the two greatest Quarterbacks the game has ever seen. Perhaps that doesn't mean much, but I am appalled at some of the things I am hearing from comments here and in the Chronicle, as well as other message boards: "Bring back T.J. Yates because he is more mobile than Schaub." "Why didn't Rick Smith go after Peyton Manning?" Yeah okay, why don't we bring over Tebow? Maybe we could persuade him away from the Jags. Heck, while we're at it, let Sanchez tag along. Couldn't hurt to have them both. Better yet, let's bring Vince Young back and give him a shot! The T.J. Yates thing is simply asinine. Peyton is relatively late in his career and even Elway wasn't sure he would rebound from injury the way he has. The point is, elite quarterbacks don't grow on trees. Geno Smith, the quartrback likely taken first in April's draft, doesn't look like he has the potential to be in the elite status. Good? Yes. Pro Bowl caliber? Perhaps. Elite? Doubtful. The level of talent fizzles in the draft after him. Look, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are special talents that come along once in a lifetime (pardon the cliche, as I couldn't think of something more witty). This is a quarteback, who in 2009, was part of a one dimensional offense. An offense with no running game. An offense letting opposing defenses know to double team #80 because he was the teams only legitimate option toward offensive production, and yet after all this, to lead the NFL in passing yards. Well, he may not be elite, but he's better than most. Until I'm presented with a viable replacement instead of a mindless knee jerk reaction, I'm sticking with #8!
