You gotta pay big bucks for a top 10 QB.

I really don't like this... I'd be willing to bet Chicago uses this as a marking point for what they'll give Cutler this offseason. Probably even more...

Exactly, but with his injured past is he?

Schaub's a good quarterback but that's to much money for him.

From fellow Texans poster, Grasspike,
Quote:
Peyton Manning will be paid 18 mil this year. His neck might fall off at some point in the season. Sam Bradford will be paid 15.6 mil this year. He was about the 20th best QB in the league last year. Phil Rivers will be paid 15.3 mil this year. His performance dropped off a cliff last year. Mike Vick will make 13.9 mil this year and more next year. He's played a full season healthy exactly once in his career. Matt Cassel makes 12.5 mil a year. He's average at best. Matt Stafford makes 13 mil a year. He's been healthy a full season once in his college and pro career. Mark Sanchez made 17.25 mil last year for being one of the worst starting QB's in the league.

Fact of the matter is, every big contract that is signed will carry risk. Signing Matt Schaub for market value is a pretty solid signing.

If u have a top 10 QB, which i firmly believe Schaub is, then you have to pay to keep him. No problem with this at all. Texans let him walk without a replacement in the wings, and fans would riot.

Agreed. The Texans were smart to lock him up, no matter the cost. I think I would have preferred to have added a 5th year, but that is just me.

He's a top 10 QB. The money is market value. Do you know we have after him? TJ freaking Yates.

What makes you think he's a Top 10 QB? Top 15 QB probably
