The Franchise QBs: Final rankings of the top signal-callers in Texans history

We've identified the top all-time quarterbacks for every NFL team, and asked our NFL Nation beat reporters -- and you, the fans -- to help us determine each signal-caller's place in franchise history.

What follows is the final ranking of the top quarterbacks in Houston Texans history, both from our NFL Nation reporter and our final fan polling.

NFL Nation ranking:

1. Matt Schaub

2. David Carr

3. Brian Hoyer

4. Ryan Fitzpatrick

5. Sage Rosenfels

Matt Schaub is the best quarterback in the Texans' 15-year history, mainly because he's the only one to make a Pro Bowl. Schaub spent seven seasons in Houston, making the playoffs twice and winning two playoff games. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2009 and 2012 and is the team's all-time passing leader. David Carr, the Texans' first draft pick in their history, comes in second for his five seasons with the Texans. If Carr could've avoided record-breaking sack totals, maybe his fate would have been different in Houston. And who knows, maybe in a year or two, it will be Deshaun Watson atop the list. - Sarah Barshop
