The entire season was a major disappointment for Texans players, coaches, management and fans alike. But there was one disappointing performance that stood above the rest. We could give you three guesses, not counting the first two and you’d get who this person is. His name is Matt Schaub.
Only one season removed from another AFC South championship, twelve regular season wins and a wild card round victory over the Bengals for the second consecutive season, it seemed Schaub was all set to lead his Texans to taking the next step and contend for a Super Bowl. But then again, that’s why the play the games don’t they?
Schaub opened the season with a nice comeback win over San Diego on Monday night, followed that up another comeback win over Tennessee, only to find out later that would be the pinnacle of the entire season.
A week later the Texans were stomped by the Ravens, a game in which Schaub threw only one interception, though it was returned for a touchdown, the first in a string of bad pick-sixes Schaub threw. The following week it was a terrible pass that was intercepted by Richard Sherman and returned 59-yards for the game tying score. A touchdown that took the game into overtime where the Texans eventually lost. Then finally Schaub threw an early pick-six against the 49ers. A game in which he eventually threw three interceptions and was benched for T.J. Yates.
Schaub did see some garbage time late in the season, but make no mistake, he was the catalyst to the worst season in Houston Texans history.
