Houston (CBS Houston)– One former NFL player is in support of Matt Schaub.

Houston native and former Green Bay Packer Donald Driver joined, ‘In The Loop’ Tuesday to discuss the Texans and his thoughts on quarterback changes in a franchise.

“He (head coach Gary Kubiak) believes in Matt and he’s going to use Matt,” Driver said. “That’s what you have to go with. As a player you have to trust that the organization is doing everything possible to win games.”

The Texans head into their bye week having lost five in a row and at this point they’re just hoping to make the playoffs.

“When you start having a losing season they start questioning your leadership, they start questioning everything,” Driver said. “When you look at the Texans right now they’re not playing as well as they have in the previous years.”

Schaub has been battered by criticism this season for his untimely turnovers but Driver went on to say that when the Texans were winning no one was criticizing or doubting what Schaub could do.

“Now that he’s thrown picks everyone is questioning him,” Driver said. “You can’t question a guy’s talent. It takes everyone around him to be successful. One guy can’t be successful on his own.”

Driver finished his Packer career as one of the most popular players in franchise history, but he said Tuesday morning, that players have to become more of a team.

“The quarterback is always going to be the focal point because they are the head of the franchise,” Donald said. “Matt is the head of that franchise but Matt only puts the ball in his hands to drop back. It’s a team effort. People can point their finger all they want at Matt but at the end of the day, you have to support him and say look, ‘We all gotta do our part, not just Matt.”

The Texans host the Indianapolis Colts Nov. 3 after this weeks much needed bye.
