St. Louis Rams @ Houston Texans. Noon. 10/13. FOX. **Official Game Thread**

Quote:

The Houston Texans are mired in their roughest stretch in almost two seasons, greatly because of some poor play from quarterback Matt Schaub.

Though coach Gary Kubiak called it a ''tough decision,'' he plans to stick with Schaub as the Texans try to avoid a fourth straight loss Sunday against the visiting St. Louis Rams.

After scoring 61 points to beat San Diego and Tennessee, Houston (2-3) has been outscored 87-32 during its first three-game slide since the final three weeks of the 2011 season. The two-time defending AFC South champions would match the longest losing streak of Kubiak's eight-year tenure with another loss Sunday.

"I think it's a huge game," said Kubiak, whose team has lost four straight home games versus NFC opponents. "It would be big either way, but, yeah, it's big because of what we've gone through these past three weeks.

"I see a group of guys that are very close, very committed to each other, very hurt ... the only way you fix things is you go back and play and do things better. I can't wait for that opportunity to get here."

Whether Schaub is as eager remains to be seen.

The 10-year veteran has thrown for eight touchdowns and two 300-yard games, but he ranks 26th in the NFL with a 76.9 passer rating mainly because he's totaled nine interceptions after having 12 all of last season. Three plays into last Sunday's 34-3 loss at San Francisco, Tramaine Brock returned Schaub's interception 18 yards for a TD, marking an NFL-record fourth consecutive game a quarterback has had a pick taken back for a score.

He was intercepted three times on the night and replaced late by T.J. Yates, who led Houston to its first playoff win when Schaub was hurt two seasons ago.

"I'm better than I'm playing and our team's better than we're playing right now," said Schaub, who has thrown two TDs and six INTs over the last three weeks.

Though Kubiak said the team "can't survive" if Schaub continues to make those kinds of mistakes, he's not ready to make a switch even though some Texans fans are burning Schaub jerseys and a sign over one Houston area freeway is calling for his ouster.

What I want to see:

More rock poundage

Because, why not? Foster is looking more and more like the Foster we know and Tate (while I want to throttle him for fumbling in b2b weeks) is still running at a 6.2 ypc clip. The Rams are a little porous vs. the run, so it can't hurt to test that out.

Massive pressure on Bradford

He's been sacked 13 times in the last 3 weeks, so this is important. Cannot let him get comfortable in the pocket. The other number 8 in this game is very capable, but can be rather inconsistent. Job at hand today is to make him the latter.

Feed Graham the rock

Cannot stress this enough when it comes to passing the ball. There's no OD around, so I think this is key. Graham can be something bigger than he already is, so I say show this off.

Force some turnovers; minimize mistakes

-8 in G/T ratio. This has to stop. For a team that was so great at forcing TOs the last two years, the D hasn't been good in this department. If we can all remember the turnovers a team has forced, that to me is not good. Force a fumble, get a pick, anything. Also, the mistakes must CEASE. Bad penalties, Schaub's screw ups, fumbles, you name it. They have to stop; starting this week.

Back for the first time! Time to start a streak and get some consistency. Y'all know how that starts? Going 1-0 this week! Every week, that's the goal. Forget about Baltimore, Seattle and San Fran; those games are over and can't be made up. In other words: To hell with 'em. Let's get back to that winning side of things, and get something going, starting at home vs. STL. LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!

The good and the bad?

The good: We should blow out the Rams today and win. Matt Schaub should have a big game and look good versus a weak Rams team. At 3-3 we'll head into Kansas City upbeat and with some good vibes as a team. Our season would still be riding on #8's shoulders.

The bad: If we lose despite being heavy favorites at home, and Matt Schaub plays poorly, we may finally make a permanent change at quarterback. With a 2-4 record, I think it would be time to try and save our season with a drastic change.

I don't agree with the people who say you are giving up on the season if you make a quarterback change. Especially if that guy has no confidence and is playing poorly.

It will either be this after today's game... :koolaid:

Or it will be this after today's game... :toropalm:

I don't want us to win. I want us to trash the rams, whipe them out and put 50 points on them. I want all 3 teams to score points tonight...

Greedy perhaps, but we all need to see this team FUNCTION :)

This is extremely difficult to say, but I think a Texans loss would be the most beneficial thing to happen for the team in the long run. Seeing the big picture is what makes me believe it is in the best interest of the team if we end up failing with Schaub. I mean, even if we won this game against a team considered mediocre (a lot of parity in the league nowadays), what does it really mean?

It means nothing.

On the surface I agree. One measly win isn't going to change anything over night. But it leads to the next big game which leads to the next big game and so on. A loss today would ruin any future excitement.

A win today over the Rams would simply mean we are still alive in the playoff picture at 3-3 with a big game coming up at Kansas City. I would actually feel excited again about this team. And if we beat the Chiefs on the road, a task that will not be easy, we'll enter the bye week at 4-3 with two weeks to prepare for the big home game against the Colts. Win that game and at 5-3 we're most likely in first place in the AFC South halfway through the season.

It's like a domino effect but in a positive way. What if I were to tell you if the Texans win today's game against the Rams it will be the start of a six-game winning streak and we'll have an 8-3 record after 11 games? I think all of us would take it. Plenty of football left to be played this season.

This is still an 11-5 team in my eyes.

Schaub's days in Houston are numbered. With a makeshift o-line he can't do the job so he'll be gone next season. And I thank the football gods for that.

In any case, I still hope we win. I hope the defense totally crushes the goats and gets a shutout. No matter what happens on offense, we can at least get a FG hopefully.


GO TEXANS!

I don't wanna see a ****ing word from you if we rattle off 8 or 9 wins in our remaining 11 games.

Good post. Unfortunately, there are people that want us to lose and miss playoffs just to increase chances that Schaub will no longer be our starter.

I don't like the sentiment that losing is good. I don't care for the incessant sunshine pumping, either. But, I'm not asking the Sunshine Club to quit posting if the Texans continue to struggle. If you don't like what you're reading, ignore it.

This is a big game - at least record-wise. Before we started stinking up the joint, I was actually concerned about it. However, since it is basically our season that is on the line, I think we absolutely roll today. 31-13 Texans.

I could be completely wrong, I've been know to be so in the past but I have the feeling that we are seeing the last days of Matt Schaub the starter in Houston. After McNair and Rick Smith's 'on the record' comments regarding #8 during the off season and the way his contract is structured I see the fork in the road coming after this season.

According to NFL Network, Matt Schaub will be on a very short leash in Sunday's game against the Rams.

Coach Gary Kubiak admitted he almost made the switch to T.J. Yates this week. He's going to give Schaub a chance to right himself in a dream matchup at home with the Rams, but more turnovers will not be tolerated. Expect an extremely run-heavy approach with some conservative play-action passes sprinkled in
hmmmmm
