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 do with the five-year, $66.15 million contract Schaub signed before the season that included $29.1 in guaranteed money. Schaub will earn $7.25 million in 2013. He'll return as the starter because owner Bob McNair, general manager Rick Smith and coach Gary Kubiak have faith in him. "I believe in Matt," Kubiak said Monday. "He's the quarterback of our team.

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.
