His response blew my mind. I cant remember his exact words but he basically said in that situation it was better to throw the ball to the check down and let him try and get to the end zone that way if he failed they could at least get a field goal.
I wish someone would post a link to that podcast.
I googled "Houston Texans Podcasts" Here's the page
for most of them. The statement you're talking about is the last Matt Schaub show.
I felt the exact same as you after listening myself.
His, "That was the best anyone could do" attitude was what really ticked me off. I'd have much rather have heard something that made me believe he knows there are situations when you have to create, instead of just taking what the defense gives you & that he's the guy that needs to be doing the creating, instead of Andre or Foster.
