Default The Matt Schaub appreciation thread

Considering all the Matt Schaub threads, this one is long overdue.

Schaub made Houston a true contender for the first time since Moon left in 1993. His work ethic is unquestioned, and he has played through concussions, ear manglings, shoulder separations, and injuries that were never publically avowed. The gratitute owed him should not be witheld because of one aberrant season. When the disappointment of 2013 fades, fans will remember the Schaub performances that made us proud of Houston football again. For me, these stand out:

- December 7, 2008: Schaub proves himself as a franchise QB by throwing for over 400 yards against the Packers at Lambeau in sub freezing temperatures. The defining moment is the 45 yard play action pass to Andre that sparked the comeback, and really marked the beginning of the team's new offensive identity.

- September 19, 2010: This happened on my birthday, and all I wanted was a win. Texans vs. Redskins, and Houston is down by seven with 2:11 remaining in the 4th. Schaub tells Andre, "Go up and get it. You're the best receiver in the league." It results in a photo of Andre that's comparable to Muhammed Ali over Sonny Liston, and Houston wins in overtime. Watch the play here at 1:10.





- November 18, 2012: The Houston defense surprisingly allowed Jacksonville to score 37 at Reliant, and the offense had to climb out of a hole. Schaub threw two interceptions, but he also threw five TD's and tied Warren Moon's record for the second most yards in a single game at 527. Highlights here.

I'm really going to miss that passing attack. When it was in rythm, it was a lot of fun to watch.
