From the Armchair: Texans, Week 5

From The Armchair: Houston Texans - Week 5

Blog Photo - From the Armchair: Texans, Week 5As a Houston Astros fan, I can honestly say that Matt Schaub breaking a dubious record doesn't impress nor depress me. That game was Astro-y and that is what depresses me. I couldn't even remember this morning who we'd played since Texans did all the work. 

I hate to sound like Kubiak and I REALLY hate to sound like Collinsworth, but Matt Schaub is our Quarterback. And I think to try out our second string guy in front of all of America like that was scary, stupid, humiliating, and bad.

And I think our new a**h*** fans are....well....a**h****. 

Lastly, f**k, f**k, f**k, f**kity, f**k.

I dig Schaub. Always have, but they absolutely should have taken him out of that game and let Yates takes some snaps. He's not doing it on purpose but he is definitely in a slump right now, and I'm sure his confidence is shot. That's how qbs lose their jobs, and anyone with eyes can see that Schaub is on thin ice, so you may as well prepare. What's humiliating is to have the rest of (dumbass) America looking at you (Kubes) and saying WTF are you doing?! I feel awful for the players when I'm watching, esp the D. The team is on the verge of a public meltdown, something has to change.

Agree 100% - my little "poor Schaub" comment was in regards to a Texans fan confronting him and his family at home. And that may have been avoided, had Kubiak made different decisions as far as pulling him.

This has gotten out of hand. Poor Schaub - it's not like he's deliberately playing badly.

Yeah I really don't get it. I watched Kubiak and his explaination, it makes sense. I understand those that want him to change the QB, I am guilty of that myself. We as fans want a quick fix, and think we can run the team better...doesn't work that way. 

Showing up at the poor guy's house? Taking pictures of his family? Things have been rough enough on him, but I can't imagine how his wife will feel at home when it's just her and their little girls.  That's just going wayyyyy too far, and I hope like heck they can find the morons and prosecute them for something/anything.

I was so hoping you were going to take this one, Leigh, 'cause I had no idea what to write. (I thought having to write about last week's game was bad!)  I think this season is way more depressing than any of them from our dreadful years because of the high hopes at the start.  Before, we knew they were gonna suck, so a good play here and there was enough to keep us looking to the future with optimism.  And wins...well, they were just the cherries on top of the fact that we had an NFL team again. But each game this year seems to just be making me wonder how much more the next game is gonna hurt to watch. 

And I can't believe how cruel people are being about Matt Schaub.  (I guess I can believe how cruel people are, but I don't like it one bit.)  It's not like he wants to be humiliated on a national stage.  If he is done...and gahhhh, it sure looks like he may be, it's not for lack of effort.  Nor has he ever been a jerk, a troublemaker, or anything of the sort.  Perhaps the Texans waited a season (or two) too long to make a move to bring in his replacement, but I'm not going to pile on a guy who has given us some damn good football to watch these last few years and done a heck of a lot for the community while he was at it.  If you want a new quarterback, fine...but don't be - as you so eloquently put it - an a**h*** about it!  <dabs tears> <steps down off soapbox>
