Schaub channels his inner Van Gundy

The frustrations experienced by Texans quarterback Matt Schaub are manifesting themselves in hilarious ways.

During the first half of Sunday’s game against the Rams, the quarterback who reportedly is one gaffe away from being benched capped a play by grabbing the leg of Rams defender William Hayes, who was standing over Schaub.

It drew immediate comparisons in the NBC viewing room to Jeff Van Gundy and Alonzo Mourning.  The difference, of course, is that Hayes didn’t take six or seven steps with Schaub clinging to Hayes’ leg.

No flags were thrown.  Fines possible could be meted out.

The bigger issue for Schaub and the Texans is that they’re losing by 11 at home to the Rams, even though Schaub has had no miscues.

    ironically that play best describes schaub’s situation with the starting qb job:

    His body language and demeanor in this game is horrible. Psychologically, this dude is shot. Dude’s 13-17 for 169 yards and you would think someone just shot his dog by looking at him. It’s like he’s just waiting for something bad to happen.

    And now he’s hurt and probably played his last snap as a Texan.

    At least he has a leg to stand in – signed Oscar Pistorius
