HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The monkey didn’t exactly fly off the back of Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Saturday. Despite the 19-13 victory over the Bengals – Shaub’s first playoff win as a starter, harsh criticism continues to flow his way.
Schaub completed 29-38 passes for 262 yards without a touchdown – unless you count the 21-yard pick-six he threw to Cincinnati’s Leon Hall in the second quarter. Following the game, Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy dismissed not only Schaub, but the Texans as a weaker opponent than the Tim Tebow led Denver Broncos were in last year’s Divisional game.
This morning on Texans Radio on SportsRadio 610, Schaub responded and disregarded the comments completely.
“We don’t care about that.It’s someone’s opinion,” Schaub said. “It’s motivation. We’re going to go up there and we’re going to play good football and give them everything they can handle. We’re going to go out and play good football and win a game on the road. That’s our mindset.”
