Some of that’s on Schaub, who’s not exactly Mr. Saturday Night when it comes to interviews. By his own admission, he keeps it dull.


The fourth-year starter talked about his low-key approach, the Texans’ push for a first-ever playoff berth and several other subjects during an interview with Yahoo! Sports:


Jason Cole: People say you’re intentionally boring and that you actually work at it. Explain why.


Matt Schaub: It’s one of my traits. I don’t know why exactly.


Cole: But you’re not that way with your teammates from what I’m told:


Schaub: I wouldn’t say I’m boring.


Cole: Maybe you wouldn’t, but plenty of other people do.


Schaub: OK, I’m not one to say anything. When I’m asked questions about football and things of that nature, I’m not one to provide bulletin-board material or express a lot of myself through the media. I’m going to keep it low-key and go play the games.


Cole: Where does boring come from? Did a coach instill that? Were your parents like that?


Schaub: I think it comes from my parents and how I was brought up. Coaches have instilled some of that in me, but it’s just not my nature, not my personality.

It's a good read but Schaub is still boring... like me!

Haha, the colorful shirt comment is awesome.

I'll take Matty being a bit dull - I'd rather that than him going into clubs and have all kinds of fun with young ladies.

I've a feeling Schaub is actually a pretty great guy in the locker room, and takes the ice off many situations. He's witty, just a bit dry, and not 100% comfortable in the spotlight.

I did a search, thought there was a Matt Schaub Show thread, didn't find it. However, I missed the show this morning & really wanted to hear it, figured there may be some guys like me who also missed it.

So here's a link to the podcast (https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/houston-texans-official-podcast/id279409851)

Calls himself an elite qb then basically describes his playing style as being a game manager.

Whatever. Not gonna crucify him for thinking he's elite, but he's not.

Interview was before the 2010 season.


But it did have some penetrating questions, like:
Cole: Did you ever try to be more entertaining and it backfired?

How do you not love this guy!

Because he scrambles out of the pocket and throws the ball away because he thinks he is about to be sacked, only to look back and see nobody there and nothing but open field in front of him for a first down...

Because he goes full fetal when the pocket gets smaller and dives for a 1 yard gain...

Because when he scrambles out of the pocket, his leg causes a fumble that looks like something off of the old 80's-90' football follies videos I use to watch...

and that was only from yesterday's game....

:thinking: Question for Mr. Schaub: You were Dog Boy...I mean Michael Vick's back up in Atlanta. Would you be willing to move to Philly to RESUME that role? PLEEEASE!?
