NFL Security looking into incident at Schaub’s house

Schaub AP

The decision of the Houston Police Department to not send officers to the home of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub doesn’t mean nothing happened.  Something did, and by all appearances the original report from SportsRadio 610 was accurate.

The league office tells PFT that NFL Security has been in contact with the Texans and the Houston authorities.

“This is a little unusual in that we don’t normally have fans acting in this way, going to a player’s residence that sort of thing,” NFL V.P. of security Jeff Miller has said, via our friends at SportsRadio 610 in Houston.  “In this case, Monday afternoon, a vehicle pulled into his driveway, an unidentified individual yelled obscenities.  The police department is involved. We’ve been in contact with them as we normally would for anything like this. And because it is a team issue, they have a security director, we work with them.

“In this case, they’ll be working closely with the police department. But it’s going to be investigated and handled seriously by [the] Houston Police Department.”

While the tweets from the Houston Police Department seem to be a bit dismissive of the original report, the information from Miller and the Houston Police Department actually corroborate the original report.

The original report was that a fan “went to [Schaub's] house and told him off.”  Miller says “an unidentified individual yelled obscenities.”

The original report was that another fan took pictures of Schaub’s family.  The Houston Police Department said that a “family member reported seeing a suspicious male in the driveway of the residence taking pictures.”

It’s unclear why the Houston Police Department felt compelled to make the initial report seem stronger than it was, only to then knock it down.

Maybe the authorities are simply trying to sidestep the obvious question that arises from these facts:  Why in the hell didn’t you send a cruiser to the home?

    Did they not get the memo that it didn’t happen?

  2. 2jivecrew says: Oct 9, 2013 12:45 PM

    These “fans” should be permanently banned from all NFL events. Get your priorities in order. It IS Texas, though, where they gerrymander school districts for football talent.

    Anyone that does stuff like this needs to seriously seek help. I’m as a big a fan as anyone else but at the end of the day it ain’t that deep.

    I’ve never been very impressed by the Houston police.

    – Adrian Peterson

    They were probably too busy writing traffic tickets afterall, we all know how much revenue they get from that.

  6. deweyaxewound says: Oct 9, 2013 12:52 PM

    I heard Schaub tried throwing the guy off his property…

    …but was immediately picked off.

  7. smalltownqb says: Oct 9, 2013 12:55 PM

    Hope Matt & his family grabbed the license plate so these idiots could be tracked down.

    Hey Texans Fans – you just made the Jets fans look normal.

  8. pacodawg says: Oct 9, 2013 12:56 PM

    Stlluna. How much do they get? Please tell us, I have always wondered. I can tell u r in the inner circle

  9. munny10 says: Oct 9, 2013 12:57 PM

    FAN is short for FANATIC, but at the end of the day it is just a game and you got to let it go. Seems like fans care more about the wins and losses than the players.

  10. jwil007 says: Oct 9, 2013 12:58 PM

    Oh so the Cops in Houston are bitter at Schaub too??? WOW the dude cant get a break! Cut him and Cincy will sign him as a back up…revive his career.. He’s an upgrade over Josh Johnson…

  11. htowntexan13 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:01 PM

    This just in…

    Schaub tried to run them off by throwing rocks at them. He broke 2 neighbors windows and hit another neihbors cat.

  12. jiveturkeygobbler says: Oct 9, 2013 1:02 PM

    “I don’t see anyone here. Do you?”
    ” No, let’s go get some BBQ”

  13. lunarpie says: Oct 9, 2013 1:06 PM

    NFL Security?!?!?! Should be called, Gestapo.

  14. thedownwardspiral says: Oct 9, 2013 1:07 PM

    This DID happen in Texas. You know… the state that gave us Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, and Tom Delay. Guess they’re as irrational about their football as they are about their politics.

  15. peytonwantsaflag says: Oct 9, 2013 1:09 PM

    Too many people making too much money off the internet these days. Our perception of reality is being altered by clicks.

    is it too hard to make a phone call before we publish?

  16. amazingguy101 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:10 PM

    Poor guy getting picked on. He’s not all to blame for the Texans losing

  17. joemammy says: Oct 9, 2013 1:10 PM

    It was probably Warren Moon.

  18. zam0854 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:12 PM

    Gary Kub’s was trying to put thumb tacs underneath his car tires to cause him to show up late for practice. Nice little scapegoat for a benching.

  19. grndizzle says: Oct 9, 2013 1:12 PM

    I guess the Houston PD likes Yates.

  20. wearethesteelers says: Oct 9, 2013 1:13 PM

    The Steelers don’t have these kinds of problems.

  21. banger60 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:16 PM

    Anyone calling for the electric chair yet?

  22. suzieb61 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:19 PM

    Seriously? How horrible! I guess some folks fail to realize that this is a little boys game played by adult men and is for entertainment purposes. Geez, get a grip people. Those identified and found guilty should be forever banned from entering an NFL facility again!! and have permanent restraining orders against them from Matt Schaub and his family.

  23. wayoffpiste says: Oct 9, 2013 1:22 PM

    Man, can we please remove Texas from the United States? What a messed up society.

    Can you not separate entertainment from the rest of your life? This is a person’s home, and his family.

  24. nsideindy says: Oct 9, 2013 1:23 PM

    We should be doing this to politicians…not NFL players.

  25. henryjones20 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:24 PM

    few yrs back, in buffalo some idiot fans burnt obscenity’s on leodis mckelvins lawn after he fumbled. fans suck nowady s.

  26. jessejames182 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:24 PM

    Didn’t the first report say Schaub called NFL security who then called the police? If that’s true shouldn’t he have called the police first? Probably called kubiack because he was afraid to make a decision.

    Soccer used to have a huge problem with hooligans, but they have laws in Britain to ban troublemakers from games. It seems to be working fairly well so far. However, showing up to ANYONE’S house, whether it’s a referee/ umpire, coach, or player is absolutely wrong just as it is to confront them on the street.

    Ok so there wasn’t a “mob” at his house, but clearly something happened. Probably just one fan.

  30. wnstonchill says: Oct 9, 2013 1:37 PM

    We should put NFL security on the Benghazi case and get that rectified………….

  31. ecupatsfan12 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:54 PM

    The press ALWAYS gets in the way of things. We see this with Sandy Hook, Boston etc even this! The media is so eager to write a sensationalist story they completely throw out the first thing they hear! when we dont even know the facts!!

  32. htowntexan says: Oct 9, 2013 1:54 PM

    While I don’t condone the fan’s alleged behavior, someone needs to tell Schaub that he sucks, because the coach and front office sure aren’t.

  33. bluenose1965 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:55 PM

    There are many real-life examples of why it’s a bad idea to run up on someone’s property in an aggressive manner in Houston.

    Dude shouldn’t bother gambling. He’s used up all of his luck.

  34. mc1439 says: Oct 9, 2013 1:58 PM

    The ironic thing is that Schaub himself was arrested for assault while a backup in Atlanta. Karma perhaps?

    Dispatch did send a cruiser, but it was intercepted and returned to the station for a touchdown.

  37. donmcg2012 says: Oct 9, 2013 2:24 PM

    “Uh, try the biggest fan base in all of sports.”

    The Steelers?? Now that’s hilarious considering you’re not even close to biggest fan base.

    I heard it was Chris Hanson with Dateline who stopped by To Catch A Predator

  39. jetsetfred says: Oct 9, 2013 2:30 PM

    Propaganda as always to make Texans Fans look bad so Rich Owner Bob Mcnair can Keep Schaub and Idiots.. The Media are Fools!! They Rather Blame Fans than this Sorry Coach and QB!!

  40. 49erstim says: Oct 9, 2013 2:37 PM

    Some people need to readjust their priorities. Football is a GAME! It is a fun distraction, but it seems to run some peoples lives. Very disgraceful.

  41. notwithkubiak says: Oct 9, 2013 2:45 PM

    Sure thing about the Steelers…they obviously don’t have everyone whining about how the Rooney Rule ruining the Steelers when they were the same ones rooting for Tomlin when he held up a trophy in 2009 and took them to another one in 2011… just saying is all…

    No, the Steelers don’t have those kind of problems, their problems are much worse.

  43. doctorrustbelt says: Oct 9, 2013 3:33 PM

    No…. the steelers have had multiple hgh/steroid scandals and a creepy quarterback issue.

  44. retief1954 says: Oct 9, 2013 3:39 PM

    Didn’t Schaub taking the NRA-endorsed action?… walk out on your porch with a shotgun and an AR-15 and act like you’re John Wayne?

  45. sportsfan52 says: Oct 9, 2013 3:48 PM

    When the facts emerge this will be about gambling and the fact this person lost a lot of money on the Texans
