Sorry if this has already been discussed. If Matt is not seeing one I think it wouldn't hurt if he did. It seems as though he presses and does not play within himself in the big games. With the playoffs coming up he needs to learn how to handle the pressure in big games. Just my opinion.

We must begin by asking it...
..."What is losing?"
Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as polio.
Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as syphilis.
Losing is a disease...
...as contagious as bubonic plague...

I don't know if it's about sports, but Schwaubie is already on Prozac, Lithium, Clozapine, Clozaril, Prilosec, Fluvoxamine, Sambuccol,....Minoxodil, & Viagra (this one ain't about sports).

So basically you're saying that Matt's on "The Geoffrey".

Explains a lot actually now that I think about it.

I don't think a sports shrink can really help a player have that "it" when it matters most.

Some guys have it, some don't. Eli Manning has "it", Warren Moon did not for example.

I have never been a huge Schaub fan (as in having a ton of confidence in him). However the jury is still out and it's too early to label him as a choker when the chips are down. The guy has never played in a playoff game.

These next 3 games are not technically playoff games but they will decide the AFC South and where the Texans end up in the playoffs.

The Texans could have home field advantage throughout or end up as a wildcard with no playoff home games.

Let's see how he handles the home stretch.

If I were to do that, there'd be a lot of dead people on Westheimer every frigging day until they cought me.

:hmmm:

Sports Psychologist: I have to say, not being able to perform three or four times...

Matt Schaub: Eight times.

Sports Psychologist: ...eight times, is not catastrophic.

Matt Schaub: Well, maybe not to you, look at you. But if I can't get it up, that makes me less of a man, and I can't have that. In my world I deal with animals, Doctor. They may seem dumb to an educated guy like you, but make no mistake, Doctor, animals are very cunning, and they sense weakness.

I used to do that. But with everything involved, stealing a firearm, stealing a vehicle, driving to another state, picking the "right" victim, the drive home, having to remember to ditch the stolen fire arm before arriving home, ditching the stolen car, stealing another car....

I just started playing video games where I shoot space aliens. Not the same... but a lot less hassle.

The detachment that some people show for innocent space aliens horrifies me.

Play some XCOM: Enemy Unknown, man, and you will really be impressed with the treatment of alien scum, including capture, interrogation, and dissection.

Agree. Also I want to see how he handles the playoffs - then I think we'll have a much better idea of his ''clutchness''.

The psychology regarding losing in sports is about process, not outcome. The successful players talk a lot about what they learned from the loss. You watch the post game interviews—and I almost do this in my head now—but if you hear a guy saying, "You know, I got beat up, but I tried to hang in there, and I won’t make those mistakes again," I know this player is going to comeback, because he’s already talking about the process, what he learned, and what he can work on, as opposed to, "Oh, the refs screwed me or the opponents played dirty pool." That might even be true, but it’s not within your control.

The term for this, in sports psychology, is locus of control. Internal locus of control, focusing on the positives and negatives that you can directly impact, usually equates to long-term competitive success and a healthy mental attitude. By contrast, external locus of control, obsessing about cheating opponents, incompetent or blind refs, are a recipe for disaster.

Oddly enough, this theory holds true even in controlled experiments where the test subject is being cheated. Those who attribute failure to something they did and something they can change, even if they’re wrong, were more likely to be successful in future competitions.

These little "hints" as to where the state of mind of Schaub and other players (as well as coaches and owners), may help you be able to better assess your gut impressions.

I think you're right.

The psychologist will have to go see another psychologist to get that psycho image out of his head, LOL!

Sounds like it's better to give the other guy the benefit of the doubt, even if he doesn't deserve it at all. Stay humble, etc.

Well, you may be right about that, grandma. I might need to have my head examined if I keep thinking that Schaub can take us where we need to go. I'm not happy with him at all.

4 games now, 4 games in a row, something ain't right. I hope it all works out for him. Because we need him.
