Uncle Bob himself co-signed keeping Schaub. Can't fire him.

Q: You gave Matt Schaub a five-year, $66-million extension. Do you have any regrets?
A: Not at all. There are a lot of clubs that would love to have him. He had a good year. He’s got to step up his game when we get on the big stage. There’s no room for mental errors. He knows that. We have confidence in him.

Q: Do you think Schaub is getting too much of the criticism for your collapse at the end of the season and the loss at New England, where you trailed 38-13?
A: It goes with the territory. It’s not just Matt. But he’s the leader of the offense and the team, and everybody focuses on what he’s doing. He didn’t drop a pass in the end zone or miss a block on a running play or give up a touchdown pass. But we can’t get where we want to go unless Matt and the offense and defense and special teams step up their game.

Q: What has convinced you that Schaub is the quarterback to help you reach your goal of winning a Super Bowl?
A: Nobody wins it by himself. I think his ability and the job he does are more than adequate. We have to surround him with tools. His arm’s strong enough. He can make the throws. He’s not the kind of quarterback to take a mediocre team on his shoulders and carry them all the way. We give him good receivers and good pass protection. The thing we really need to do that we didn’t do as well last season is to get our running game going better. So much of what we do is based on our running game.
Be mad at the right guy. And that's Bob McNair.

Now having said that, I think Schaub is on a shorter leash than everyone thinks. Those pick-six's Schaub has thrown in just three games have definitely not gone un-noticed by the man who signs his checks.

Uncle Bob stepped in and hired Wade. He stepped in and had them pursue Lechter and very likely Ed Reed. So let Schaub keep making "mental errors" and cause us to miss the playoffs; my money says Schaub'll hit the road with kindly ole Uncle Bob's foot up his butt.
