"I believe in Matt. He's the quarterback of our football team. I've got no doubt about him," Kubiak said Monday via Tania Ganulia of the Houston Chronicle.
It's surprising to see so much vitriol against Schaub after a game in which the Texans defense gave up 41 points. Schaub had a killer interception, but played pretty well otherwise. You can fault Schaub largely for contributing to Houston's losses at the end of the regular season which led to them falling out of the No. 1 seed. Schaub was hardly the main reason the team lost to the Patriots.
"There's plays for him to make, but he did make a lot of plays, too. We could have helped him," Kubiak said.
Based on Kubiak's comments, however, Schaub should remain the unquestioned starter. They can win with Schaub, but to win it all their defense and running game need to be truly dominant. Both fell off slightly this season, and Schaub fell with them.
