    Is it just me or is Matt Schaub's performances this season less than stellar? I'm getting really tired of seeing him not give 150% every game. I'm really sick of having to see us go 3 and out over and over again.

    Does anyone else feel this way too? Or is it just me?

    No it's not, because 1 play doesn't make up for consistently bad passes.

    1 person doesn't win a game my friend. It's a collaborative team effort. I just think he's lacking the luster he had last year is all.

    Almost let that win slip away again.

    Matt helped us out but he really needs to cut the INTs down. The only problem is he seems to throw INTs under pressure.

    Well.... he was under pressure. Are you surprise he would make bad throws under pressure?

    I agree. I also think his defender vision is pretty poor. He always seems clueless when he gets hit and when he throws picks. To me, he just doesn't look like the same QB. He had confidence last year.. played with swagger. I'm not seeing that this year yet.

    Exactly, and one player doesn't take all the blame for losses either, it's a collaborative team effort. Had we lost today, there was pressure all day, two turnovers that weren't Schaub's fault, and, yes, while he does deserve his fair share of the blame (had we lost), again, you cant blame him entirely.

    Flip flopping from, blame Schaub to well, it wasn't all him, it's a team game is not fair to players.

    If anyone won that game for us it was AJ with that INT saving catch on the last drive. Schaub just isnt that good.

    1-4.. yes the win helps. But the 4 losses still hurts and holds us back in standings a great deal. A win is a win. It's a start. But the 4 losses also say something as well. Maybe I'm a pessimist. I just don't think he's playing at great caliber.

    Taking the wins and losses out of the equation, I have been less and less impressed with Schaub. The turnovers are killing us. Maybe the Texans just need a QB that can perform under greater-than-normal pressure; I don't know. I do know that this is mostly the pass protection that this team gives its QB. So if that's as good as it gets, then we need a better QB.

    yep yep yep. This guy is aweeesome. Amazing play down the stretch by AJ, Schaub, and Walter. A freaking mazing. I take back every negative thing I said about AJ, this guy is simply just a beast.

    4-0 against Dolphins, keep the streak alive baby!

    Exactly.

    Almost and probably should have thrown in interception on third down at the end of the game.
