If I were Matt Schaub, I would spend my recovery time at various industrial workplaces in Houston with a lawnchair and a foam finger, then shout "WOOOOO" every time an I-beam or a bunch of pallets fell on someone.

This is getting ridiculous. No, it's worse than that. Yates sucks also. Keenum probably sucks.

Fire Kubiak and everyone except Rick Smith, draft JFF and let's have some fun next year

I love getting worked up into a foamy rage by the media as much as the next buy, but it does say it's about his arm.

I get the feeling Matt Schaub might end up making the Texans feel pretty sorry about how they treat him now in the future wearing a...Buccaneers jersey?

/or not, totally spitballing here
/point is, Houston, he's not the incompetent you think he is

Texans have a lot of problems. A lot of it is Kubiak.

But Schaub sucks. I've been saying it for 2 seasons now. He's slow as shiat, can't do anything outside the pocket, panics, and really did seem to lose his throw. Too many passes have gone too high or too low for receivers to catch. Unless it's to the defense, he seems to be spot on with them.

He may not be the main problem (Kubiak is), but he is a big problem.

Houston has one good year and the bandwagon's already on fire. The Texans wanted national recognition, and they got it. Everyone knows the Houston Texans have the worst fans in the entire world now.

Hahahaha really?

What about Chiefs fans cheering Cassel's injury?

Or Philly fans cheering on Michael Irvin being injured?

Or Saints fans cheering when Wilson was injured?

It happens.

I'm three years ahead of you on that opinion of Schaub. It's not just that he often doesn't have the arm to get the ball to receivers. When he does get it there, 90% of the time they have to stop running and wait for it. It's a combined Kubiak/Schaub problem, and they're joined at the hip. My personal theory is that Kubiak sees a lot of himself in Schaub. Both started out as backups to a much more high profile, more athletic, more mobile, stronger armed quarterback. Schaub finally got a chance to be a starter and is showing why he was the backup. Kubaik never did, mostly because he was seemingly content to stay the backup and collect a paycheck without ever being exposed for what he was.

I would still cheer a Micheal Irvin injury so long as it prevented him from speaking.

THIS should be a SNL skit. Players who have been drummed out of the league go and watch normal every day people and berate them at their jobs.

I think it would be a comedy gold mine.

It was funny when they ran that Manning commercial when he was cheering everyday joes.

My guess is he was referring to the stories of fans showing up at his house and threatening his family or whatever. Did that turn out to be disputed?

The most they can get was some guy who pulled into Schaub's driveway and started yelling obscenities before leaving. Link

Still inexcusable, but not like the torch and pitchfork situation they were trying to make it into at first.

See, now that's funny. The Kroger display is pretty tasteless. This isn't celebrating an injury in quite the same way, especially since the interception wasn't really related to his injury.


And yeah, fans cheering when any injured player gets carted off the field are pretty tasteless. I may hate a player enough to not care if they get injured, but at the same time, I'm not going to celebrate that injury.

Hey guys... Look... We suffered through the David Carr years because people thought they could build a team like the Cowboys and not end up like the cowboys

Now, we got a defense, we got skill players, and we got a real chance. What happened? I am betting about 90% that Matt Schaub is hurt and hiding it because he doesnt want to lose his starting job. He is under throwing receivers by 5 yards on any pass over 15 and he is missing wide open targets over the middle. Houston fans do not want to suffer through another 10 years out in the cold. We have a team built to win NOW and we dont want to lose the opportunity.

Someone on the ESPN comments section said it best: The players will leave, the coaches will leave, the management will leave. In the end all there is that stays with a team is the ownership and the fans. The fans pay to go see the games and the fans pay for the crappy merchandise. Why do you want to anger and upset your fans? The fans have a right to cheer for a new quarterback and boo and under performing quarterback. If you have a problem with that then you can play in an empty stadium and cut your salaries by 50%-75%

I really hate how ESPN and the players seem to come out against Houston fans for cheering a new quarterback coming onto the field not for an injured failure leaving the field. Schaub couldnt put up more than 2 field goals against the RAMS... yes the RAMS whos defense couldnt stop a bunch of organized kindergarteners. Whats next? Jacksonville is going to roll into town and shut down our passing game?

Well they still have the Astros and the Rockets to cheer for.

Meh, I joked that a Lion should have a pizza delivered to Burleson's house everyday, or at least every game day.

I get that it sucks to get hurt and be in pain, but these guys aren't exactly financially broke.  Nor are injuries unheard of in their line of work.  If you don't want to get hurt at work, maybe pick a job that have more medical staff waiting to pick you up than is on staff at the nearby ER.

/I got a tour of William Bryce stadium (USC), and they have a mini ER in the locker room.  I imagine the NFL has an even better medical set up.

No, that's why the Oilers pretended they were going to Jacksonville. No, wait, that was about money and Bud Adams not getting what he wanted with a new stadium paid for with taxpayer money. And that's precisely what the Texans got, and I'm sure that pisses him off to no end, which is just fine. Both of my grandfathers knew him personally, and they didn't see eye to eye on many things but one thing they could agree in was that he was a spoiled and insufferable brat.

Wow on your little list here only Philly fans cheered when an opposing player was injured.  Does that make them classier or shiattier than the others?  Since Michael Irvin was an annoying douche who was helping Jerry Jones win championships I'm going to give them a pass on this one.

IMO it's shiatty all around. As a Texans fan, I don't condone the cheering of an injury. But it does happen. People get drunk and worked up into such a frenzy they're damn near rabid at those games.

My point was it's going to happen sometimes and it shouldn't be a reflection of all the fans, just the shiathead ones that every team has.
 
2013-10-17 11:48:00 AM  
Who are you going to get better than Schaub?  TJ Yates isn't the answer.  Is Josh Freeman better?  Is Matt Flynn better?  Is Ryan Fitzpatrick better?  Cassel?  Sanchez?
