Houston Texans’ All-Time Passing TD Leaders
The Houston Texans were an expansion franchise in 2002, and to date have not reached the playoffs as I write this in 2010. But the Texans have drafted pretty well and have had great quarterback play much of the time. Here is a short list (well, it has to be!) of the Texans’ all-time leaders in passing touchdowns to date:
Matt Schaub (75)—Matt Schaub has been the Texans’ quarterback since 2007, and he ranks first in the team’s history with 75 touchdown passes to date. Schaub had his best season so far in 2009, with career highs in passing yards (4770, led the NFL) and passing touchdowns (29), with 15 interceptions. It was also the first time Schaub was selected to the Pro Bowl.
David Carr (59)—David Carr was the Texans’ first quarterback, and led their offense from 2002 to 2006. Carr ranks second in franchise history with 59 TD passes, and his best season was 2004, when he had career best numbers in passing yards (3531) and touchdown passes (16), with 14 picks.
Sage Rosenfels (24)—Sage Rosenfels has been mostly a career backup, and he backed up David Carr in 2006 and Matt Schaub in 2007 and 2008 with Houston. Rosenfels ranks third in team history with 24 touchdown passes, and his best season so far was 2007. That year, Rosenfels started 5 games in place of Schaub, and played in 9 games altogether; and threw for career highs in passing yards (1684) and TDs (15), with 12 interceptions.
