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.
