The elation of Sunday’s dominant win over the Bucs didn’t last very long, did it? All our hearts sank when we heard Monday’s news that Matt Schaub had suffered a “significant foot injury” that will in all likelihood turn out to be a season-ender.
My initial thought, of course, was that the season was all but over – but like usual, in the short-term I overreacted a bit. Where I stand on this now is simple – the Texans will still win the AFC South, probably with ease – but I no longer have any expectations of a deep playoff run.
With all that said – I am going to give Matt Leinart a legitimate shot to show us he can handle this situation. Not because it’s “fair” or because “he deserves it.” But for the following factors:
1. Weak division – The Texans already have a big lead on the division with little competition from the Titans, and none from the Jaguars or Colts.
2. Weak schedule – Leinart doesn’t have to be “great” to win the remaining games on the schedule. Keep in
