Texans stand behind Matt Schaub

Posted · Add Comment

Despite quarterback Matt Schaub throwing interceptions returned for touchdowns in the past three games, the Houston Texans stand behind him.

Schaub completed 31 of 55 passes for 355 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, one returned by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Richard Sherman as the Texans squandered a 20-3 lead in their overtime loss.

“I don't see a lack of confidence,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Monday during a press conference. “I see some poor decision-making situations. Something that he has to handle and something that we can help him handle. How short of a leash is he on? He's our quarterback.”

Kubiak is a former NFL quarterback who backed up John Elway with the Denver Broncos. He's committed to working with Schaub to improve.

“I've been there for him when things have been really, really good and I promise I'll be there for him when they're not so good,” Kubiak said. “We're there for him right now. We've got to help him work through this.”
