Frustration shows for Schaub, Johnson at end of latest Texans loss

Losing eight straight games has a way of bringing frustrations to the surface and that’s what happened at the end of the Texans’ Sunday loss to the Raiders.

Quarterback Matt Schaub was caught by cameras saying something to wide receiver Andre Johnson after the two men came off the field following the Texans’ failed attempt to convert on fourth down at the end of the fourth quarter. Johnson says something back to Schaub and then retreated to the locker room before the final whistle after others on the Texans sideline stepped between them.

It’s relatively mild stuff. Coach Gary Kubiak said after the game that he wasn’t bothered by the spat and Schaub also downplayed it as the “emotions of the game,” but it’s still another bad look in a season filled with them for the Texans.

Kubiak said he made the change to Schaub from Case Keenum because he made changes to the game plan that would have been difficult for Keenum to handle. It sounds a lot like making a change for the sake of making a change after watching Schaub lead an offense that wasn’t doing anything much more exciting than Keenum was doing. That’s a frustrating place to find yourself as a team and it became impossible to hide on Sunday afternoon.

    I’m sorry but why on earth did they make a switch to Schaub, I really can’t think od a reason why, it made no sense at all.

    Dre is one dude you don’t call out for not competing to his fullest. Schaub, you looking for scapegoat check the mirror.

    The titans welcome you back to mediocrity with open arms and a chuckle.

    Of course Kubiak wasn’t bothered by the sideline spat between Schaub and Johnson. He wasn’t on the sidelines to even know what was said. And yes, he did make the QB change just for the sake of change. Like a baseball manager pulling the plug on a pitcher who has a no hitter going, but the batters aren’t getting any runs to support him.

    Because the Keenum kid wasn’t very good today

    Kubiack must go but our owner sucks. Makes we wish had Adams back almost.

    As I understand this, Johnson was annoyed with Schaub for making a rookie mistake and staring down where he was going with the ball, which is why it was so easy for the Raider safety to get a jump on that pass, and then he just walked away while before the game ended probably to cool off because it’s pretty much over for this group as constructed from the coach to the QB to even Johnson. And it didnt matter that Keenum got pulled, he was awful today besides that long TD on the blown play. Schaub moved them inside the 20 three times in his quarter of work which was more than Keenum did most of the day. The problem for them was the same systemic problem this offense simply has, it stinks inside the red zone. Unless John Elway can get some youth serum, that problem can’t be fixed regardless of which of them is under center.

    Maybe it’s the fault of the QB, the head coach, the GM or the other players, But I’m at a loss to understand why there is so much hate for the man who brought football back to Houston. Is this why Bud Adams left town?

    Kubiak changed QBs to counter the Raiders blitz and it got them back in the game and within 2 yards of a win before a false start and Shaubs Romo impersonation. Kubrick did his job he put his team in position to win not his fault his players didn’t execute.

    Adams left because of corruption in Houston. Not Toronto style corruption, but theres a reason the freeways in Houston don’t run in a straight line Downtown, they were adjusted so that certain property owners could get their property next to the access roads and increase their value. And when Bud wanted a stadium for the oilers the Houston Sports association that ran the Astros shut it down, I can only imagine because they wouldn’t get their cut of profits anymore, then asked for a stadium a few years after the oilers left. Which is where the worst baseball team currently resides.

    Coach, is that you?

    You wonder why I don’t like this owner— eleven years and twice to the playoffs. The other years, awful. Would be okay, but one of the primary reasons is the idiot coaches and gm. The owner doesn’t care because he sells out every game. No other owner would put up with this coaching style and record. The man is a bad coach.

    @jessejames 182:
    Thanks for giving me the lowdown on why Adams left. Now tell me why they hate the current owner.

    Weird… so weird. A year ago today all the Texans “fans” and supporters were praising this team and everyone else involved as y’all all seemed more than destined for the Super Bowl. Talking more than your fair share of noise just because your team was finally relevant. Now, you face adversity and decide to throw every swinging dick under the bus from the offensive linemen to the owner. Please look at your head coach, (I do feel very bad for his medical troubles) he is an absolute moron and bonehead. Him and Marvin Lewis are meant for each other, decade of below average results and still have a job, I can’t figure out why.

    Maybe I one day I will run into a non-bandwagon Texans fan.

    Who starts next week at QB for the Texans?

    (You say, who cares?)

    The fantasy football world wants to know…

    Case Keenum would have had a win as a starter by now if the Texans defense was any good.

    If starting Schaub next week, let me know so I can start the fantasy defense playing against him while he throws pick 6’s….
