Texans' WRs better than you think

The Texans' passing game has a chance to become very dangerous. It has become clear that Houston's running game is less than adequate and probably will not be overly productive for the rest of the season. Because of this the Texans absolutely must lean on their ability to throw the football.

QB Matt Schaub has been very solid in his first year in Houston. He is smart, accurate and gets rid of the ball quickly with great touch. He is a decent athlete with more than enough ability to become an upper-echelon starting quarterback in this league. However, on Sunday, Schaub injured his leg and left the game for a short stretch. Very shortly after he returned, he was simply flattened by Titans DT Albert Haynesworth and didn't return again. The extent of his injuries are not yet known and obviously it would be a serious loss if he were not able to return for some time, but his replacement, Sage Rosenfels, did an admirable job in relief of Schaub.
