You don't lose a game in the first two possessions but you sure can win a game in the last two possessions.

414 yards passing.

If this team could somehow avoid turnovers we would be scary good.

That was a hell of a read and throw to Andre for the second touchdown.
It was a great throw to Andre on the 2-point-busted-play conversion
(tight spiral, accurate-as-hell.) Sage doesn't have that poise, and it
cost us games.

Schaub has been calm under fire since he got here, included his first
start against the Colts last season, when we ALMOST drove for a win.
Show me when Sage has been able to calm the team down after mistakes.

Today, OD fumbled.
Today, Schaub threw a pick
Today, Slaton fumbled
Today, Jacoby muffed a punt

So, that's 4 turnovers (damn near 5 if you count Kevin's fumble.)
Yet, the team NEVER lost confidence because their LEADER didn't lose
his. Did you see Sage almost cry after only ONE interception on Monday
night?

EVERY team in the league makes mistakes, but not every team has the
poise it takes to come back and win ANYWAY. 417 yards for Schaub says
I shouldn't hear SHITELSE about a quarterback controversy in Houston.

He's always been a badass. We all knew the wins would start piling up once the D held the other team to under 30 pts.and I am so glad they're finally doing it. Not to take a single thing away from Schaub, but had our D played like they were earlier in the year, this day would not have turned out as well as it did.

But I totally agree, I was completly impressed with the level of play today by all the Texans. ( well for the most part. I'm not going to bicker right now because I'm still smiling from the WIN WE JUST GOT!!!)

I'm still not sold on his long-term destination.

He did stone-up on a lot of clutch plays today, I admit that. You can NOT deny it.

But he also made a lot of lazy passes that were had-scratchers. I don't know if he's trying to finesse the ball in there or what. The looping pass to OD for the big gainer at the end of the game was one of those floating passes that found its mark: He MEANT to do that, but his passes downfield are generally floaters or thrown later than they should be.

And I don't like how sloe he is getting away from center. I know the knee might be sore, but this is still something that I have seen since game 3 of last year.

This was a fun game. I don't care that I don't care for Schaub. This game was fun, and it was long overdue. If Schaub keeps doing this, which is something I question that he CAN do, then I will eat my Texans cap (A little shot to SWT.) Speaking of SWT, where's he been?

How about the 1st TD throw?

He hung in the pocket, threw the ball and got creamed. He "only" threw for 350+ yards after that.

Lets keep #8 clean and we'll get more wins.

C'mon....the guy was coming back from injury and was rusty...Matt Schaub IS A STARTER in this leauge (fans try to diss him, because he's not a pro bowl QB) and he's great at running a 2 min. offense.

The only problem I have with Schaub is his health, when healthy he's a good QB who puts up yards in a top 5, TOP 5 OFFENSE.

Like I said before.....when healthy Matt Schaub is a prototypical pocket passer......hell his TD pass to AJ and 2pt conversion to AJ was pratically back 2 back TD passes.

Yeah, and for a split second, I felt like "great, here we go again". Little things like that can crush a teams momentum. Im just glad the rest of the team didn't buy into it and kept playing hard. oh well, we got our man back, and Allen got a taste of his own medicine today (y'all see that temper tantrom he threw?)

Schaub was clutch today. Clutch on the 2-point play with AJ and clutch at
the end of the game to get us in field position for Brown's FG. And pretty dang good the rest of the time. Good game Matt !

That was so awesome- Schaub leading us on the game winning drive!!

It's incredible that we won this game. Very tough conditions for the Texans on the road. All those turnovers!? The Packers scored their 21 points off 3 of the 4 turnovers. The only time they didn't score off a turnover was Daniels' fumble on the 2 yard line.

This was a very very good win for our team. If our defense can consistently keep teams around 20 pts/ game or less, we will get a lot of W's. The score today really should have been something like 40-10!

Schaub looked rusty today. He made SEVERAL throws into double coverage that were questionable at best. I like the guy. He can be a good QB, but I don't like the gunslinger "Favre" style I see in that. Having said all that, I think he can be the Texans QB of the future. He shows a lot of poise in the pocket and took some hard shots today that should quieten the fans who think he has a glass jaw. Like everyone else, I'm tired of looking to next year for a breakout season, but I think next season will see us take the NFL by storm. We seem to be learning how to win close games, beat the teams we should and pull out a surprise victory like todays. What I wouldn't give for a tackle of Gerrard on 4th and who cares and Sage to tuck the ball and fall on the ground.

Schaub and clutch is like oil and water, seriously, he's cost us more games than he's won. Great game by him to bounce back after the pick, the more he plays the more he matures. He has the tools but makes too many mistakes. A win against the titans and running the table the rest of the year will get me off the fence. He throws up good numbers but there's always a number other than zero in the interception category. We'll go as far as he carries us.
