    There is more. It's a pretty good read.

    Nice article. Thanks for posting. :thumbup

    I don't see Schaub a the kind of player that seeks revenge, either. He left ATL on good terms, and it was just business. I think the real losers in all of this are Falcon fans. Sucks to be them right now.

    I remember in 2002 when the Bills came to Houston and it looked like the Texans might win that game. Then Jay Foreman started playing like a bonehead and racked up a badly timed penalty or two. It really cost us the game and you just knew he was pushing too hard to try and show up his old team.

    That kind of thing is understandable but there's really no place for it.

    I don't expect anything like that from Matt Schaub.

    After watching the espin town hall I am not sorry for some of those fans what so ever.

    This article was very well done and it is an enjoyable read. Schuab seems to have his head firmly screwed on straight and that he will not get caught up in any of the crap that some writers will try and portray about he is going back and he wants to beat them. Most of the time it is all bullcrap.

    Somebody was just telling me about that (I didn't see it). Pretty bad, 'eh?

    It's gotta' be tough to see the face of your franchise going down in flames from self-inflicted crimes. I'm sure there are lots of frustrated fans in ATL right now, so I would not be shocked if the Texans face a very hostile crowd this weekend.

    Instead of bringing out the Bulls to tackle their players, let's bring out pitbulls and sic'em on their players on the big screen. I'm talking about our pregame thingthat they always show on the TV. The bulls come roaring out of the gate and start tackling playersand stuff.

    WOOF WOOF! GO TEXANS!

    Wondering if We'll see a few we miss you Matt signs from the ATL fans.

    I honestly wonder if it'll get any hype from the media.

    HE said? Schaub or the fiancée?

    It's ok Schaub, we love you, and apparently some other guy loves you just a little bit more :)

    Seriously, there was one lady there with her child who is (guess) about 8 years old and they Boo'd the Humane Society spokesman. They also yelled out some nasty things that espin had to use the dump button on. The only reason those people still love Vick is because of the color of his skin and that is a travesty.

    I could not stomach to watch the whole thing because all I could think of is that Society as a whole is in trouble with people like those in the Audience.

    Please don't confuse Vick groupies with Falcons fans.

    Why? Going to our MB, seeing a Falcons forum and a Vick forum should speak for itself.

    Prolly not, but the original quote were either the result of horrible writing or, there's some real man-love going on. Not that I care. If Schaub win games he could be the second coming of Ghengis Khan, and I would still be a fan :)

    He seems pretty happy to me....not that there's anything wrong with being happy.

    This is Matt's fiancée. Looks like a woman to me.

    I'd be 'gay' - in that happy sort of way - for her. :shades:

    You are sooo close to just saying what you really want....I'd be 'gay' is a start DB, and in time you'll be comfortable enough to come out completely.

    You can try to sweet talk me all you want, but for the last time, it's an exit only.

    "Gay" used to mean 'happy' before you people hijacked the word.
