Posted October 07, 2013 on AP on Fox
The San Francisco 49ers turned a prime-time showdown into an all-out pick party at The Stick. Tramaine Brock perfectly read Matt Schaub's first pass of the night, jumped in front for an interception and ran 18 yards for a touchdown just 90 seconds into the game, setting the tone for a stellar defensive performance in a 34-3 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday night. Things only got better for Brock and San Francisco, and worse for Houston's beleaguered quarterback. Schaub threw three interceptions in all before being replaced in the fourth. Colin Kaepernick tossed a 64-yard touchdown pass to Vernon Davis and Frank Gore ran for 81 yards and a score in his second straight impressive prime-time game. The 49ers (3-2) are right back in the NFC West race with Seattle after the Seahawks (4-1) lost at Indianapolis. Each team has beaten the Texans (2-3) and lost to the Colts, and Seattle still must visit San Francisco on Dec. 8. Anthony Dixon added a 2-yard touchdown run fo...

Police Called to Deal with 'Fans' at Matt Schaub's Home

It has been a rough season for Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub. After last week's poor showing against the San Francisco 49ers he has the dubious distinction of being the only quarterback in NFL history to have an interception returned for a touchdown in four consecutive games.

Should the Texans bench Matt Schaub permanently?

Late in Sunday night’s game between the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak pulled the plug on quarterback Matt Schaub’s three interception performance. Although T.J. Yates saw some playing time, it wasn’t a permanent move. Still, it’s no surprise that quarterback controversy is creeping into Houston. Following three straight losses...

Five takeaways from Week 5 action

"You're not, you're not good, Al. You stink." Serendipitously, this moment in Caddyshack was on TV immediately following Matt Schaub's historic performance last night. Is "historic" the word I'm looking for? It's easy to pile on Schaub today after the Houston quarterback's latest football faux pas (19-for-35, 173 yards, three interceptions...

Texans’ TE Owen Daniels Out 4-6 weeks

Here’s another tough blow to Matt Schaub’s already shaken confidence. ESPN.com is reporting that Texans tight end Owen Daniels will likely to miss four to six weeks after he suffered a non-displaced fibula fracture late in Sunday night’s game against the 49ers. Daniels is tied for the team lead in touchdowns, and probably the only person Matt Schaub can get the ball to right now.

This weekend in NFL stupid

It's as though they're becoming smarter as the season wears on. This was easily the least stupid week thus far in 2013. Thank goodness for the NFC East.  The stupidest pick six, considering the circumstances I hate to pile on Matt Schaub, but when you've become a pick six goat this season, I don't know how you throw this pass on the very first series against...

Seriously Romo?

What is it with quarterbacks in Texas? Last week Matt Schaub threw a game tying interception against Houston and subsequently crapped the bed in San Francisco on Sunday night. This week it was the NFL’s favourite whipping boy Tony Romo who, despite a career day, managed to revert to form and throw an interception that cost his team a game. A storyline that is all too familiar for...
