From watching practice, it appears as though Matt Schaub has endeared himself to his teammates pretty quickly. That’s on the field though, inside the locker room Schaub got a lot more popular Tuesday because he sprung for two X-BOX 360 consoles for the team lounge.

Like most NFL players, the Texans are gamers, but only the original X-BOX and PlayStation 2 resided in the team lounge until Tuesday. Players were in there after practice Tuesday enjoying Gears of War and if that wasn’t enough, Schaub also treated the team to subscriptions to X-Box Live.

Two other Texans that have been in the news recently for another form of charity are Ahman Green and Jason Simmons. As most of you have heard by now, Green has agreed to put the money up for a down payment on a home for a lucky single-parent family.

In exchange for his gesture, Simmons agreed to let Green wear number 30. Anyway, the story has caught on nationally with features on “ABC World News Tonight” and “ESPN First Take” among others.

Tuesday, Green and Simmons will be talking with Sports Illustrated’s Rick Reilly. Their story will be the subject of Reilly’s column in the June 18 issue of SI.

Those of us in the organization are pretty proud of Green and Simmons for working such a deal out. There are a lot of headaches that go along with a proposal like this one though.

There’s a lot of red tape the players have to work through, but it’s going to interesting to see how it all plays out. Hopefully Green and Simmons have set and example for other players across all leagues, not just the NFL for when a number conflict arises in the clubhouse.

Cool! I wonder how I could get their Xbox Live gamertags to play some Gears of War with them?

It sounds like the team is starting to build some chemistry on and off the field...

Geez, you'd figure with as much money as these players make they'd already have a 360 in there. I mean, they can only afford 1000000000000000 of them with their salaries...

Defnitely can't argue those points...

And really the only reason I'm in love with PS3 is because I'm a resistance addict....

Well not quite an addict, but I love it...Haven't played gears of War nor Halo 3, but if they are as good as resistance I might be purchasing another system...

Sad thing is that I don't even play Madden much anymore, and that used to be my thing...

Default Re: Schaub is doing the little things

If I had the funds, I'd get a PS3 and Wii, too. I'm a gamer that is not married to a particular system.

I'm boycotting Madden this year, and I've been one to buy it every year. They just don't offer much in upgrades to justify the price, and since the exclusive deal, they seem to be regressing, IMO. Plus, I can't bring myself to buying a VY cover...

I will buy All Pro 2k8, though! And I'd suggest everyone support the little guys that are fighting back. I can't wait to draft Earl Campbell to my team.

The 360 has the Xbox Live Marketplace, where you can download demos of a bunch of old school games. And to buy the full version, it's only a few bucks.

Centipede just came out, and Galaga (form of Space Invaders) has been out for awhile. Asteroids is represented by a really nice updated version called Geometry Wars. I'd like to see Missile Command, because I played the heck out of it back in the day.
