Matt Schaub "getting his mojo back"

The Texans were the worst team in football last year, managing just two wins. The Raiders had four wins last season and one of them was against the Texans with Matt Schaub at the helm. Much of the blame for that season was placed on Schaub who threw 14 interceptions with just 8 starts and was benched in favor of local favorite, Case Keenum. Schaub has thrown for over 4000 yards three times in his career which were all three of his last full seasons in Houston. Two of those seasons, he was named to the Pro Bowl. So, what happened?

“Schaubby’s getting his mojo back”

A year ago in Napa, Day 2 or 3 of training camp, Raiders coaches and teammates started to notice a lack of zip in Matt Flynn’s passes. Then he came out a few days later wrapped nearly head to toe in ice. The confidence, and months later Flynn himself, followed his arm strength out the door. The early returns this year have been much better. Second-round pick Derek Carr is zipping passes in, not looking like a rookie. And the guy that Reggie McKenzie traded for this year to be the starter, Matt Schaub, looks the part. “Matt’s our quarterback and he’s done a great job ever since he got...

Raiders QB Matt Schaub named the starter in Oakland

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, in only the first week of training camp, confirmed that veteran QB Matt Schaub will start this season for the Raiders. When asked about who the starting quarterback would be, Allen responded "It's Matt. Matt's our quarterback" and then reiterated the statement again by saying "I'm really excited about Derek Carr, I think he's got a chance to be a top-level quarterback in this league. But he's young, and he's a rookie. That's a tough proposition in this league." There were questions of whether there would be a camp battle after the Raiders selected Carr...

50 best plays of 2013 - No. 21: Geno Hayes' INT vs. Texans

We're counting down the 50 best plays of 2013. Who made it to No. 22? Geno Hayes and his great read on Matt Schaub to steal away an interception.

Rod Streater trying to convince Matt Schaub he can be his new Andre Johnson

For the past seven seasons in Houston, Matt Schaub had All Pro receiver Andre Johnson as a security blanket. Johnson was downright dominant during that time, having over 1000 yards in every season he played more than nine games and three times going over 1500 yards. Rod Streater would like to take over that role for the Raiders. "I talked to [Matt Schaub] before," Streater said in an interview with Bay Area radio station, 95.7 The Game. "Andre Johnson was one of my favorite receivers growing up, so I already told him, ‘yo I got the 80, Andre was my favorite receiver [inaudible]'. I...

Scouting the South: Houston Texans Preview

We begin our look at the Titans' division rivals with a team that went from first to worst in one quick season. 2013 Recap: The Texans won their opening two games, including a Week 2 matchup against the Titans, before promptly having their season fall apart.  The Ravens, Seahawks and Niners sent Houston below 0.500 with three straight losses and it only got worse from there.  The team did not win another game and their season ended with a streak of 14 straight losses.  As expected the collapse cost both Gary Kubiak (fired in-season) and his QB, Matt Schaub, their jobs.  General Manager...
