Even though the Houston Texans claim Matt Schaub is their starter going into next season, it doesn’t mean they won’t select a quarterback in April’s draft. It certainly sounded like Texans head coach Gary Kubiak left the door open. “Well, we always look at everything,” Kubiak said in his season-ending press conference on Monday. Our sources wouldn’t rule out the possibility, pointing to the situations of the 49ers and Seahawks, neither of whom felt they needed a starter when they selected Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson in the second and third rounds, respectively, the past two years. We hear the Texans would love to have a mobile QB like one of the two aforementioned rising stars. With Schaub now in his early 30′s, he is what the is.  He’s an above average quarterback that will likely never be able to carry the Texans the way a franchise quarterback needs to.  It’s time to look for another long-term solution. I’m sure if the right quarterback falls to the Texans in the second to fourth round of this year’s draft, they’ll snatch him up.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Cornerback Jonathan Joseph needs a check up from the neck up: “I think we were a better team”

Texans' offseason priorities after best season

The 2012 season was, by all objective measures, the best in Houston Texans history. They went 13-5. Their quarterback threw for 4,000 yards. Their running back ran for 1,400. One of their defensive linemen recorded one of the best seasons ever recorded by a defensive lineman. All that, and they were a mile away from beating the New England Patriots. So as the offseason begins, the...

Jonathan Joseph thinks the Texans are better than the Patriots...still

I really can't come up with any possible reason why any player on the Texans would think they were better than the Patriots. After the first game, which the Texans lost 42-14, I was of the mind that maybe the Texans weren't as bad as that seemed. Then, in the playoffs, the Texans held the Patriots to just one fewer point. I think that speaks for itself and proved to the...
