You don’t really have to be a Texan to know that we are fanatical about our football. I mean “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” is real life. We have multi-million dollar stadiums…for high school games. Houston has two professional-grade football stadiums on the same parking lot. Right next door to each other.
We take our football seriously.
Last week when my Houston Texans (you see how I talk?!) lost a 21 point lead in the second half to the Seattle Seahawks, people were upset. So upset they burned Matt Schaub’s jersey in effigy in the tailgating parking lot.
This week the Texans got to be the whipping boy for the San Francisco 49ers. Matt Schaub made history when he threw a pick 6 for the fourth game in a row the opening drive. I called him every name in the book and probably made some new additions. I’m ready for Kubiak to just bench him because mentally you just can’t come back from that for a while. We need to make the playoffs because…because dammit!
I’ve talked about how it’s good I haven’t seen Schaub out in public because he would feel the wrath of 4 million people at once (sans a few Cowboys fans, but everyone knows they don’t count anyway). But one fan took it a little too far when they showed up at Matt Schaub’s house and yelled at him.
Way to go Texas.
Reports are coming in that the NFL security team had to contact Houston Police Department because a disgruntled fan was yelling on the Schaub family’s lawn. Telling him off. Because nothing makes your shaken quarterback play better like your drunk ass yelling on his lawn. Note: I’m only assuming this idiot was drunk because that is the only time this could seem like a good idea.
As of now, no arrest have been made in the matter but I’m sure if you are dumb enough to go to your team’s quarterback’s house to offer sound advice late at night then you are probably dumb enough to brag about it on Facebook. I may or may not spend the rest of the afternoon browsing sites to see if I can find someone bragging about being this grand level of idiot.
But for real, do better Matt Schaub.
