Like many, I generally think of Schaub as pre-injury and post-injury. But that stretch of 11-1 was Schaub at his best, and that was post-injury. Which leads me to a game that I can't leave out:
- September 23rd, 2012
: The media will only commemorate this as the game that Schaub lost a piece of his ear, but Texans fans know it was more significant than that. This game may have been Schaub's finest performance. He was fearless when stepping up in the pocket, and his throws were focused and accurate. This is the game that had me believing that the Texans were going to blaze a path to the Super Bowl, and they almost did. The play where Mays collides with Schaub is at 4:59 here
. What may have been forgotten is that the throw would've been Andre's second touchdown if not for a freak leg whip by Champ Bailey that kicked the ball out of Andre's hands.
