Found October 01, 2013 on Larry Brown Sports:
It’s safe to say that Matt Schaub is the new Tony Romo. The Houston Texans quarterback has thrown six interceptions through four games this season, including a pick-six in three straight games. Two of the interceptions returned for touchdowns came late in the fourth quarter (first against Tennessee and then against Seattle). Both pick-sixes resulted […]

  • Don't they have a sitting (PEKING) duck special? Schaub's agility has disappeared or nonexistent, and he can't move worth a distance from chasing defenders. Besides that, he is more than willing to fling the ball away just to avoid the physical hurt of being tackled/sacked.

    The Texans have two young agile, elusive QB's in the roster that can outperform SCHAUB by a MILE, but Coach Kubiak wants to stay the course with his LOSING QB!! SF 49ers will send the Texans packing with a 2-3 record come Sunday.

    Can you imagine how another LOSS eats and gnaws AT the still-percolating, raw and throbbing nerves of Mr. JJ Watt, Antonio Smith, Brian Cushing & Co. who consistently deliver their DEFENSIVE BEST at every game AND who collectively keep quiet about their hatred of Matt Schaub's pick-six charitable tendencies benefitting the opposing teams?

    SCHAUB should muster the courage or have the balls to URGE the team and Kubiak that he must be benched. Barring that, he will get this Texans team to their worst season EVER having him at the QB helm. Super Bowl is but a BLUR right now for the Texans! We can only watch KUBIAK on the sidelines agonizing quietly for his ultra-poor decision making to play an inept QB for consistency's sake -- LOSING!
  • Bob McNair is a good man and by all indications a very fair owner and boss. Gary Kubiak is a good man and very loyal to his own "choice of players". Kubiak was always the backup QB to John Elway at Denver. Eventually he was the QB coach at Denver. I doubt he could have added much to the already great Elway. Kubiak came to Houston hell bent to install the offense he learned From Shannahan at Denver. He was sure it would work here. He personally went after Schaub. It was his choice and he sold it to McNair. Kubiak does not want to back away from his personal pick. Kubiak also went after TJ Yates and he also sold that to McNair. Yates was in on a few wins in games that he was played to "not lose". Jake Delhomme (winner and older veteran) was backup to the kid Yate's. When we got to the playoffs Schaub was out due to injury and Kubiak wanted to go with his own pick, Yates. Houston lost. A proven veteran like Delhomme may have made a difference. Kubiak wants to prove his picks are right. Could they be wrong? After this preseason Kubiak made Yates the backup and delegated Keenum to the practice squad. It was reported Kubiak did not wish to cut Keenum for fear that an opponent would pick him up. Would that be embarassing to cut Keenum and then he hits the big time with another team? Isn't that what happened with Jacoby Jones and Trindon Holliday? Keenum appears more agile and mobil than either Schaub or Yates. Keenum can run and play "up-tempo" or hurry up football. He can make things happen. I would rather have fun and lose than teased with almost wins and lose. Let us see what Keenum can do with a wide open passing game. Someone near the top needs to make some tuff calls or we will just be cussing and looking to next year. Get us a coach with FIRE and a QB that is a FIELD GENERAL.
  • It's about Kubiak and the offensive co-ordinator as much as it is about Schaub. Until we hold Kubiak and the offensive coordinator 'accountable', there will be no "change".
