    And no one can blame the latest pick 6 on him, since he's on the trainers table.

    Watching it on TV I could hear some cheers. Never wish an injury on anyone and I still think he gives us our best chance to win out of anyone on this team. I was hoping they would bring in Freeman and see what he could do.

    Definitely heard it on the radio. Pissed me off so bad I had to turn it off. Way more embarrassed by that act than anything the team has ever done -- even draft Carr.

    Those people who cheered should be embarrassed and are terrible human beings.

    Pretty sure one poster here on my ignore list was cheering somewhere.

    Awful to see our fan base turn into such a-holes.

    Had to leave the game early for family reasons, but not before Schaub got hurt and then the crowd absolutely erupted in cheers for his injury and Yates entrance into the game. Other season-ticket holders around me and my brother thought that we were in Philly for a minute.

    ohh god settle down with your fake outrage and moral indignation.

    The entire city of houston was cheering.

    You act as if the fans just killed his wife and kids after witnessing schaub get both legs amputated.

    Its not that serious and frankly, a lot of people felt the same way.

    Schaub has earned it.

    I am sure Schaub is going to be ok.
    I would not cheer for an injury, but he is a professional athlete making millions of dollars. As long as he does not die or get permanently disabled, then he can take whatever he has coming.

    I don't think people were cheering Schaub's injury as much as they were cheering that he was finally getting off the damn field.

    All that means is that they were rooting for an injury for business reasons, not personal reasons. They were still cheering an injury.

    Yea, some stupid azz people somehow think it's cool or macho or whatever to cheer and applaud in situations like this with an unpopular or controversial player at QB. Just like the classless and cowardly jerks who would harass him at his home with his family.

    I was personally excited to see Schaub get off the field. While injury was last on my list of thing I hoped to happen to get him off the field, I will take whatever I can at this point. Now we can finally move on and see what else we have at QB.

    Well, the answer is not Yates; I can tell you that.

    Riiight. And Philly fans weren't cheering Irvin's injury as much as they were cheering he was finally off the field.

    Fans shouldn't cheer when a player gets hurt. They should act like they have some class.

    I think we saw what we have in Yates, and it wasn't exactly looking like an upgrade.

    Who cares. This isn't high school. He is not permanently injured. Such a random thing to be upset about. How is it any different to cheer or boo an interception, a fumble and a sprained ankle for crying out loud.

    People get upset because they are told they should get upset over cheering an injury.

    It is just a silly social convention with no merit.

    Don't worry! As waynegg said, he wasn't cheering the injury, he was cheering the change!!

    (He was cheering the injury and can't deny it)
