Matt Schaub finally traded

My first memories of Virginia football are of Matt Schaub leading UVa to many victories (I did not watch college football before 2002), and then seeing him get drafted by Atlanta, who already had Virginia Tech alumnus Michael Vick leading them. It was obvious early on he would not be starting there, and he has sat on the bench for three seasons.

That is finally changing, as Matt Schaub has been traded to the Houston Texans. He will likely get a real shot at starting there as David Carr, Houston's chosen starting QB since its first game in 2002, has not been able to get the team any success (Houston was an expansion team, but Carolina and Jacksonville both made the playoffs in their second seasons as franchises). Here's hoping that Schaub will finally find the NFL success he has long deserved.

UPDATE 6:05 PM: I just remembered that fellow Hoo alum Wali Lundy is also in Houston, allowing for a reunion of sorts.

And what is up with teams in the southwest? They recognize young UVa stars more readily than others it appears. That makes five Wahoos on teams in Texas and Arizona.
