Houston Texans fans are understandably upset at Matt Schaub. The quarterback, whose arrival in Houston in 2007 appeared to be the piece the Texans needed to get themselves over the hump, is again failing to fulfill expectations with another middling season. The Texans are 2-2, and Schaub has thrown eight touchdowns against six interceptions, none more egregious than the pick that doomed Sunday afternoon’s 23-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Schaub made a poor decision as the Texans saw one of their usual plays quickly get busted by an aggressive Seahawks defense. Schaub didn’t have a good option to throw to, but he still floated a pass without a moment’s hesitation — right to a double-covered receiver who had one of the best cornerbacks in the league, Richard Sherman, on his back. Sherman picked off the pass and ran it back for a touchdown, setting up the eventual Seattle win. So some Texans fans, irate that Schaub has been good but not great, decided to burn his jersey in the parki...

WATCH: Texans fans burn Matt Schaub jersey outside stadium

Matt Schaub never struck me as the most beloved player ever so his downfall may not be all that dramatic, but it’s still fun to watch an established starting quarterback get turned on by his team’s fans.

Houston restaurant takes shot at Matt Schaub

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.

Texans’ Fans Burn Matt Schaub Jersey

Matt Schaub’s Twitter Account Mysteriously Vanishes as Texans Struggle

Colin Kaepernick responded to his critics in an interesting way last week, favoriting critical tweets as motivation. Matt Schaub is apparently taking a very differant approach to the Twitticism.

The Texans need to start TJ Yates now

I’m sorry Texans fans, but you cannot let a 20-3 lead going into the third quarter. Matt Schaub is a veteran quarterback and he made a stupid rookie mistake that cost him the game yesterday. When getting rushed late in the game Schaub elects to throw a floater in the air to the flats. The […]

Fight In Qualcomm Stadium Parking Lot Culminates In Bottles Being Broken Over Peoples’ Heads

If parking lot incidents in two different cities on Sunday are any indication, stupid behavior does not discriminate between NFL fan bases. Late Sunday, photos and video surfaced of Houston Texans fans burning a Matt Schaub jersey in the Reliant Stadium parking lot. In that incident, at least nobody was harmed. The same can’t be said for this fight outside Qualcomm Stadium in San...

Rough year so far for some top QBs

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer NFL quarterbacks can be broken into three groups: elite, good and ''can we find somebody else?'' That last group is growing considering what has gone on with the Buccaneers, Browns, Raiders and Jets already. Most troublesome, however, are the recent meltdowns by some quality passers who seem to take huge...

Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans Highlights: Steve Raible Edition

If you’re anything like me, you can’t stand the FOX play-by-play duo of Chris Myers and Tim Ryan.  I have been watching the highlights of the Seahawks-Texans game from this week and Chris Myers saying “He’s got followers, and not just on Twitter!” absolutely ruined Richard Sherman’s incredible interception which he returned for the game-tying touchdown.
