You wont be seeing this for a while
The Houston Texans have made it official, placing quarterback Matt Schaub on the injured reserve list, meaning he's out for the rest of the season.

The Matt Leinart Era begins Sunday. And if Leinart gets hurt, or plays utterly Leinart-ly, and T.J Yates blows it? Your new backup QB is Kellen Clemens, the former Oregon Duck who hasn't done much in the NFL besides learn coach Gary Kubiak's offense at Washington, and that apparently was enough to make him the best of a not-inspiring tryout group of Chase Clement., Brodie Croyle, Trent Edwards and -- God help us -- Jeff Garcia.

Texan fans are putting their hopes that an improved defense and an impressive running game will make the switch to Leinart less devastating than initially thought.

It's possible, we suppose, but it's also...Matt Leinart. Who hasn't done anything since the Bush Push.

'god help us' jeff garcia? you mean the guy with 25000 career passing yards, 62 percent completions, 186 touchdowns, and 4 pro bowls?  God should help the texans if they had a qb like Garcia, albeit in his prime -

Leinart will take the Texans to the Super Bowl. And the Super Bowl after that. And make it look easy. Lets go Texans!!!!!

Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl by handing of to Jamal Lewis 40 times a game and letting a staunch defense do it's thing. We have 2 of Jamal Lewis. We'll be fine...

The severity of his particular injury requires a surgery in which screws will be installed in his foot. You think anyone can play football like that?

Was really pull for Chase. A Clement to Casey touchdown in the NFL would have made me SO happy.

Leinart is the starter now. The names getting thrown around were all being considered for the new *backup* spot.
