The problem with Houston fans is that they don't actually analyze the play. The problem with "haters" is that they won't accept failure assigned to anyone but whoever their scapegoat is. Go watch the play and stop regurgitating the ignorant view that Schaub is responsible for the pick-six. Schaub threw a pick. It was six because the TE gave up on the play.
The first is all too common. The second never happens and it's crap to blame the receivers and ends for hi lighting all of Schaub's short comings if you really think OD gave up on the play. And if that is the case, perhaps they're tired of making Schaub look good and taking the blame when they can't don that super cape every game. Schaub isn't it. He doesn't have what's needed to get to the next level.
If those he throws to decided to stop going to super human lengths to make our mediocre quarterback look like a star, good for them! It'll expose Schaub for what he is and maybe a positive change can be made to get our team to where we all want them to be. People made every excuse for David Carr too...
Besides, watching the film over and Schaub is responsible for both pick 6 on the season. There's a huge difference between supporting your team and sticking your head in the sand.
