Dear Football Gods, Why the f*#k do you hate us? Sincerely, Houston Texans Fans. The day after the Texans notched a convincing road win in Tampa, they got the news that their quarterback Matt Schaub will be out for the season with an injured foot. Their backup is none other than Matt Leinart. At 7-3, the Texans are well positioned for a first round playoff bye, and could even get the top seed in the AFC with a little help. But again, their starting quarterback is now Matt Leinart. --Jack Erwin
