NFL Injury Report:
Many have questioned whether or not the Houston Texans
should continue to commit to Matt Schaub as their starting quarterback. Coach
Gary Kubiak did just that yesterday, telling reporters, including Tania Ganguli
of The Houston Chronicle, that Schaub is the quarterback of the Texans, and
that he has no doubts in his signal caller.
"I believe in Matt. He's the quarterback of our football team. I've got no doubt about him," Kubiak on Schaub. #Texans

The criticism coming from Houston directed at Schaub has
been extremely vocal since the team’s slide started late this season. He
finished the year completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 4,008 passing yards
with 22 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He went on to complete over 66 percent
of his passes in the playoffs, but he threw only two touchdowns compared to two
Schaub’s contract includes a significant amount of
guaranteed money for next season. That coupled with his regular season success
and the lack of alternatives available mean he’s likely to return for another
season as the Texans’ starter. However, if the team fails to add to its 2012
success next year there figure to be even more calls for the quarterbacks head.

Well, this is a bonus hot chick of the morning. Earlier we did Aaron Rodgers girlfriend Destiny Newton, now we have Laurie Schaub, the wife of Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub. We are trying to knock out all of the WAGS of the quarterbacks that got knocked out of the playoffs this weekend. I couldn't find many pics of Ashley Manning to make a post, so check her out on google...
After another game in Foxboro, which pretty much had the same outcome, the Houston Texans are headed home in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year. I’ve said time and time again that if you don’t get at least one step further than the year prior, the season was a disappointment.
I realize it’s rough to call a team that was 11-1 just under a couple...
From Paul Gallant of Houston’s SportsRadio 610 to CBS Sports.com’s Mike Freeman (who calls the team “frauds”), many are taking shots at the Houston Texans following Sunday’s 41-28 loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the 2013 NFL playoffs.
It was a disappointing end to what was seen as a Super Bowl-or-bust year before the season. And for at...
Even though the Houston Texans claim Matt Schaub is their starter going into next season, it doesn’t mean they won’t select a quarterback in April’s draft. It certainly sounded like Texans head coach Gary Kubiak left the door open. “Well, we always look at everything,” Kubiak said in his season-ending press conference on Monday. Our sources wouldn’t rule out the possibility...
Texans QB Matt Schaub threw for 343 yards Sunday against the Patriots.Fantasy Spin:Schaub's 25-yard strike to DeVier Posey in the fourth quarter was his first career postseason touchdown. He threw for another one six minutes later to cut New England's lead to 38-28. Sunday was Schaub's third 300-yard game of the season and his first since Thanksgiving.
Matt Schaub may have thrown for 343 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday against the Patriots, but if you’re accepting those stats at face value, you likely weren’t watching the divisional round game.
Schaub struggled early against New England, which is part of the reason why the Patriots were able to jump out to a 31-13 lead before the Texans scurried to score some points in the...
The 2012 season is over for the Houston Texans, and now we look onto the potential 2013 Houston Texans roster changes. The Texans will be tipping their ten gallon hats to potentially 17 players this offseason. The first person to mention who may be gone in 2013 and the most important is outside linebacker Connor Barwin. Barwin’s numbers are slightly down from 2011, but he has been...
Because he's the quarterback, Matt Schaub is being targeted for most of the criticism by fans and media over the Houston Texans losing 41-28 to the New England Patriots on Saturday and exiting in the second round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year. No matter how much fans and media howl for a new quarterback, it's not going to happen. And it has nothing to...
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...
The game is over and our beloved team got served once again. The New England Patriots came into the matchup with a game plan that was scrapped and still managed to hang 41 points. After watching this game so many questions come to mind and major concerns going forward. In this final article let’s look at some of the concerns going into the offseason.
FINAL SCORE: Texans 28 Patriots...
Coach Gary Kubiak continued his defense of Matt Schaub the day after the Texans were eliminated in the divisional round of the playoffs for the second consecutive year.
In Sundays 41-28 loss at New England, Schaub was 34-of-51 for 343 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and was sacked once when the ball slipped out of his hand.
I believe in Matt, Kubiak...
A great win by the Patriots as they advance to the AFC Championship game. The Texans fans were obviously really disappointed. While they felt they got some unfair calls by the refs, they mostly blamed Matt Schaub. Having an average quarterback must be a tough go in the NFL, it's something Patriots fans should not take for granted with Tom Brady in New England. Anyway, enjoy the...
Action started with a Danieal Manning 94-yard opening kick return to set Houston set in the New England red zone. Matt Schaub could do nothing with the opportunity save overthrow Andre Johnson by about 10 feet. The Texans took their field goal then went about the usual business of underwhelming everybody.
Danny Woodhead and Gronk left the game early with injuries. For Pats fans,...
