Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak wants everyone to know that there will not a quarterback competition come next season. Matt Schaub is their unquestioned QB.
"I believe in Matt. He's the quarterback of our football team. I've got no doubt about him," Kubiak said Monday via Tania Ganulia of the Houston Chronicle.
J.J. Watt is also leading the charge in support of Schaub while many fans are looking for a change at the position after their playoff loss to the New England Patriots.
"Have they ever been in his shoes?" Watt said of Schaub's critics.
"If you want to sit here and question our quarterback, that's fine. But every guy in this room believes in him. We all trust and believe that he can take us there. We're not going to listen to what the outside world says."
If Schaub's critics are using this latest loss as a call for change, it's completely unwarranted. After all, the Texans defense gave up 41 points Sunday.
