Texans will never win Super Bowl with Matt Schaub

That’s right; I said it. The Houston Texans will never win a Super Bowl with Matt Schaub. Before you pass judgment on me; I want to show you facts and statistics. And I’m not a Matt Schaub hater. Hater implies I’m jealous of Schaub’s success, and that could be further from the truth. I believe Schaub is a capable quarterback in the NFL, but he’s not a franchise quarterback...

Texans' offseason depends on Barwin, Quin

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Houston Texans approach March and the start of free agency with 19 players set to become unrestricted free agents.
