When I hear the name Matt Leinart, I think of Eli Manning. Kurt Warner will go down in history, in my opinion, as a better QB than Eli. And yet in NY Kurt sat so the Giants could play their franchise draft pick. Regardless of who gave them the better chance to win.
The same cannot be said for Leinart. Same situation, and yet he was deemed not good enough. Even after Warner retired, he was let go. Not even good enough to keep on the team, let alone take over once Kurt retired. Houston would be better off letting Ben Tate throw.
Granted Leinart will have a running game he didn't have durring his opportunities in Arizona, where they required a Quarterback who could *gasp* throw the ball accurately. But seriously, who can miss a target like Fitz?
Every year all the experts predict the Texans will show something. And they will make the playoffs this year, without question. But if they host a game, I predict a home blowout in favor of the visitors. Sad, really.
I was hoping for a Texans superbowl run. Its entirely possible. With a great running game they can keep Brady off the field, and who can't score on NE these days anyway? Save the Jets. I think they could have contended with the Ravens or Steelers as well. With a Peyton-less Colts team spear-heading to join the Lions in infamy, it was all lining up for Houston...look what they were doing without Andre Johnson!
Texans fans, take a lesson from Cubs fans and get 'em NEXT YEAR
PS- ignore the over-used title

The world is outraged at what allegedly happened at PSU -- Rightly so.
I've heard all week how this has nothing to do with football, this is about people. About protecting kids. About human decency -- I absolutely agree.
So then, why was JoePa fired? Paterno needed to go. I know it, you know it, he knows it. And so he decided that after this season, he would walk away. I heard comments after he made that declaration, that he needed to be removed immediately. So the "healing can begin"
Do you feel better now? Are those men who were allegedly molested as children at the hands of Jerry Sandusky now finally starting the healing process because Joe Paterno is out as head coach at Penn State?
The man is 84 years old and he's been the head coach since 1964. While I know these are not the terms he probably wanted to retire on, at least let him keep a shred of dignity.
What happened was a tragedy. And if you believe what people say, it goes beyond football. So then, why was football Joe's punishment? Whether you believe he did enough, or as most thing that he didn't, his legacy will forever be tarnished by these incidents. I just fail to see how anything is better with his firing. Letting the man finish the season out wasn't going to make what happened that much worse, was it? I haven't heard anyone say "Well, PSU certainly has redeemed the honor of the school with this firing"
Its something I'll always question...
