After Sunday night’s loss to the 49ers, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said that Matt Schaub was still the team’s starting quarterback but couched that statement by saying that the team would meet about things Sunday night and during the week to “see where we’re at.”
Monday brought more of the same from Kubiak. He again said Schaub was the team’s starter and that he’s trying to help Schaub push through a rough patch that has featured four interceptions returned for touchdowns in the last four games. Again, though, Kubiak offered caveats to Schaub’s status as the leader of the offense. Kubiak added that he was in the “evaluation process” and said that he wasn’t afraid to pull the trigger on a change if he thinks it will help the team turn the corner.
“I can promise you there’s accountability,” Kubiak said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “If I think on our football team something needs to be done, then I’ll do it.”
McClain, who has covered the Texans since they came into existence, wrote on Twitter that he thought Kubiak made it clear he was considering making a move at quarterback. That opinion’s going to be hard to disagree with until Kubiak says that Schaub’s his guy without any suggestion that the door for a change remains open.
