Matt Schaub the NFL's Version of a 'Cooler?'

In the 2003 movie The Cooler William H. Macy played a guy that the casino called in to 'cool down' a player that was on a hot streak. He didn't really do anything special in order to do it. His bad luck was strong that his presence at the table was enough to turn the hottest hot streak ice cold.On occasion life will imitate art and it looks like it may be doing just that...

List of veterans the Raiders need to cut and what it will cost

Just over half way through the season and it’s already time to start talking about which guys signed by the Oakland Raiders last offseason have already earned a one way ticket out of town. As noted in an earlier piece, the Raiders offseason free agent plan in 2014 has turned out to be an absolute disaster. Of the 10 major free agent signings, only two have really panned out: James...

Fan talk of Houston Texans needing to bring back Matt Schaub gains momentum

Is there really a movement growing for the Houston Texans to bring back Matt Schaub to start at quarterback? How quickly fans forget.

Matt Schaub: A microcosm of Raiders recent struggles

It’s somewhat understandable that the Oakland Raiders targeted a veteran quarterback in the offseason. At the time they traded for Matt Schaub, there wasn’t anyone on the roster that could be considered a viable starter in the NFL. The problem with this trade was that Oakland viewed Schaub as a decent stopgap starter in the NFL. This at a time when most around the league had...

Matt Schaub Throws First Pass for the Oakland Raiders and Guess What Happened

During his final season in Houston Matt Schaub became infamous for one thing--the hated and dreaded pick-6. The man had a knack for setting up defenders with a clear run to the end zone after they picked him off. It led to him getting benched and eventually booted out of the city. When he landed in Oakland it almost seemed poetic, but the Raiders got smart and opted to start rookie...

Raiders need more production from tight ends

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) When the Raiders traded for quarterback Matt Schaub in the offseason, it was expected that Oakland's tight ends would take on a bigger role in the offense. Schaub leaned heavily on the tight ends in Houston, so the assumption was that the affinity would carry over. Through five games, it has been the opposite. Schaub lost his job to rookie Derek Carr coming...
