Although if ET were willing to slide some $$$ my way, perhaps I could be persuaded to want them to win.

I root for the Texans because they have my favorite player: Arian Foster. When there not playing the Skins or the Pats of course.

I like some teams, hate some others and I'm mostly indifferent to the rest but I only root for one team.

That said, the Texans are a division rival, and one whose fanbase has suddenly gotten so high and mighty after 1 good season, so I prefer if they fail miserably where they belong. Twisted Evil Wink


Funny how you mention that when Colts fans are doing the same thing now that they have Luck. Wink

We've been high and mighty since 1999, your point is invalid.

Not really. When the Colts were bad last season, no Colts fans were talking about them. Yet when they get Luck and are 6-3 Colts fans are all high and mighty. It's basically what you are saying about the Texans. We have been bad/mediocre for 9 years and the 9th season when we are finally good we are all cocky. Which is basically wrong. I react to my team the same way good or bad.

There's like, 3 Colts fans on this site Laughing.

Even still, I for one was rubbing it in people's faces that we were getting Andrew Luck right off the back of Peyton Manning.

IMO, a team this complete should win the SB more often. It's not that I dislike QB's at all, but if I had my choice I would want my team to win a SB with a team like this other than with a Rodgers, Manning, Brady, Brees type team. Those teams have been dominated by their QB and if they went down they are pretty much done....so the SB seems like less of a team accomplishment and more of a one man show.

Schaub is a very good QB, but if he went down this year, I could still see the Texans having a chance to win the SB...not because the dropoff between him and the backup isn't quite a bit, but because of their style and how good they are in every facet.

The Giants were not exactly QB dominated, but they simply weren't good enough either year if Eli went down...same for the Steelers with Big Ben, IMO...although they are the closest in recent memory. Those Rams teams were great cuz they also had the great running game even with a dominant QB, although their D was just good not great.

So I'd really like to see the Texans take it this year...The Schaub/Foster combo really reminds me of Green/Holmes as well as having one great receiving threat with Andre/Tony, the Texans just have the D to go along with it. If they win, they'd be the truly greatest all around team in recent memory.

Anyone else want to see this or do you prefer a QB dominated team to win it?

Not really sure what this means......but I do know that this is a quarterback's league and you need a good/great one to stand a chance of winning a Super Bowl. You can have a great running game and a great defense, but you NEED a quarterback to execute. The quarterbacks you just mentioned as having a team "like this" over have accounted for winning seven of the last nine Super Bowls (Roethlisberger winning the other two) whereas the Schaub led Texans have ZERO.

I'll take my chances with the proof in the pudding Laughing

I'm still having a tough time figuring out what "QB dominated" means ?? Are you referring to teams with proven elite quarterbacks ?? Because you'd be a fool to say you don't want one of them....

Frankly I think the Texans offense would be mediocre at absolute best without Schaub and that he is one of their best players by far. If you ask me, I would be the contrarian to the OP and say that aside from Duane Brown, Schaub is the only guy on the Texans offense for which there isn't a potentially capable replacement.

It means you are completely reliant on your QB on the offensive side of the ball...if he goes out your team is garbage or in some cases average, but no longer a contender to win. Schaub is just about as good as Eli or Big Ben, but the team doesn't rely on him near as much because they are more balanced offensively and have a great D.

I do want an elite QB, I'm only saying if I could choose i'd take a more balanced team like Hou rather than a team like Indy that depends so much on their QB. A team like the '09 Vikings had an elite QB, but were well balanced....that's the kind of team I prefer.

Why doesn't Big Ben count in the 9? He's better than Eli, but I consider neither team QB dominated, because they play better D, and run the ball more than NE,NO, or Indy, just not at the level of the Texans or the '09 Vikings.

This has nothing to do with not wanting an elite QB, I personally just enjoy watching/rooting for a more well rounded team and I HOPE more teams like that will start winning SB's....that doesn't mean they will.

QB's are always gonna be the most important position, I just don't like to see it every year when it's not even close as to who was the biggest reason for each team making the SB....it diminishes the rest of the team and if it was my team, i'd prefer it was more equal. IF the Texans made it, Schaub may be the biggest reason why, but it's not gonna be as obvious.

Wouldn't mind seeing the Texans win the SB. Unless you're a division rival, it's hard not cheer for an expansion team that has finally emerged.

Can they do it without Schaub? Absolutely not. I don't care how good every other facet is, at some the QB will have to make some throws and win a game.

And when was the last time a team won a Super Bowl with a backup QB?

I would like to see what the Texans can do in the playoffs with a healthy Matt Schaub.

Tom Brady in 2001-02 (but then again he hasn't given up the reins since)
Trent Dilfer in 2000-01 (perfect example of a team winning irrelevant of QB)

I've always liked the Texans because they've always stunk...now that they're relevant I like seeing them succeed. I'd be happy to see them win the Super Bowl...not like my Jets are going there any time soon.
