What happens if the Texans Lose Matt Schaub to Injury?

NFL: DEC 28 Bears at Texans
The Houston Texans have one of the more explosive offensise in football. But with Matt Schaub’s in ability to stay healthy. One has to wonder, if Houston will be able to succeed in 2009.

In previous seasons the Texans have been able to lean on Sage Rosenfels as a capable backup to run the offense.

Now Sage is with the Vikings and the Texans are left with Dan Orlovsky and Rex Grossman as the backups in Houston.

It’s a long drop off that lofty peak

Sports - July 30, 2007

In 2007 quarterback Rex Grossman was playing for a world championship against the Indianapolis Colts. Two years later the Chicago Bears released their one time star and until this week he could not even find work in the NFL.

This month QB Rex Grossman signed a one year deal with the Houston Texans for the veteran league minimum contract.

To make things even more embarrassing for Rex is that he now has to fight for a backup role with Detroit Lions cast away Dan Orlovsky.

Can Grossman Turn his Career Around?

While these are tough times for this strong armed quarterback, it could make him a good player again. For one Rex should have no problem beating out Orlovsky as the No.2 quarterback on the team.

If and when Schaub goes down again, Grossman will play in one of the best offenses in the league.

Instead of throwing footballs in the windy city of Chicago, Rex will play in a dome. This will give him more opportunity’s to flash his strong arm by throwing footballs down the field. It also doesn’t hurt when you have a stud No.1 receiver like Andre Johnson either.

Texans outlook in 2009

I’ve picked the Texans to make a run for the playoffs this season and get in as a wild card. But that being said, the Texans can’t afford to lose Schaub for long is they are going to get there. If Schaub should go down for a few games, I blieve they have enough talent behind him to win a game or two.
