Default Re: "Matt Schaub gives Texans best chance to win in 2014" -Marshall Faulk

And I have also said in other posts that it was time to change. I also said I would get behind whomever is selected to lead the Texans.

It's everyone else trying to make it out like I made the comment, and am suggesting Schaub should get another chance. Which never happened. Personally I think some of these guys feelings are hurt because of some of the things I said about their hero Case Keenum, and him not being able to muster even a single win has them a bit touchy. After all they all swore he would light it up. They were also the same crowd who said if the Texans had a mobile QB, our problems were solved. Some of the same dudes also said Kubiak was done, and would never work in the NFL again.
I know my feelings were hurt over comments made about my hero Case Keenum.

He did light it up at first. Nobody can argue otherwise with any credibility. Like I said above though and I'll elaborate just a bit here the team finally hit quit-mode. When Keenum came in and had those very, very good (but not quite good enough) games against KC, Indy, and Arizona I think the losing streak began to take on a new meaning. Here the team had finally moved on past Matt Schaub and I think many of them thought that the change would produce. It didn't (for a number of reasons not the least of which was an often MIA running game due to injuries) and that's when quit-mode kicked in. Not everyone. Not all at once. Just enough doubt and frustration and good old fashioned apathy to keep that last bit of the season in the ditch.

Case didn't get a fair shot. I believe that. I also believe that nobody in the NFL gets promised a fair shot and most prospective players don't even really get a shot at all. On all 32 teams more guys go home it seems than stay on the team. Case had as good a chance as anyone can expect. It just wasn't in the cards this time around. He played well, he played poorly. The same can be said of just about every first time starter. He had a shot and the clock was ticking.

You have to be able to accept that stuff though and move on when the player you like doesn't succeed just like we move on when guys we don't care about fall short. Every year a pack of them shows up, gives it their best shot, and ends up going home. Can't fall in love with any one player because the team marches on.
