Found September 30, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
Sunday was not a great day for the Houston Texans. After jumping out to a 20-3 halftime lead at home over the Seattle Seahawks, Houston wound up losing 23-20 in overtime, and that had fans really upset. In fact, after quarterback Matt Schaub threw an interception in the fourth quarter, a slew of boos rained down from the Gilette Stadium stands, prompting receiver Andre Johnson to deliver this comment after the game. "Fans are going to be fans," Johnson said, via ESPN.com. "You have some that are loyal. You have some that are fair-weather, and they only come around when you win. I've been here when it was 2-14 and there was hardly anybody in the stands, so I really don't care about what fans think. A lot of them don't understand what players go through. They can talk about what they want to talk about." Obviously, Johnson was frustrated with the situation, however, dissing the fans is never a battle you can win as a player, and it's not likely his comment will go over well with Texans fans, either.

Houston Texans fans have had enough. Following Houston's 23-20 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks, a swarm of angry fans spilled out into the parking lot and proceeded to set ablaze any and all Matt Schaub jerseys. Some of it probably had to do with the fact that the Texans squandered a 20-3 lead despite 355 yards passing and two touchdowns from Schaub. However, he did...

Let the Matt Schaub Jersey Burning Begin!

It is a frustrating time to be a fan of the Houston Texans. The team was supposed to kick butt this year. It was supposed to lock down opposing offenses, run all over their defenses, and pretty much dominate them in every facet of the game.
