Dear Mr. Schaub:
I heard you on Sports Radio 610 today, and I heard you express your disgust and anger at those fans who left the game after your second interception of the game allowed the Colts to jump into the lead. You said that if they were really Texans fans, then they would have stuck around to the bitter end so that they could watch you fumble away the ball while completely fumbling away the game.
I guess I understand your anger. After all, Sage Rosenfels choked away a game against the Colts last year, and this year he’s playing on a Super Bowl quality team and backing up a Hall of Famer. So I can only assume that you wanted as many people as possible to witness your attempt to become a back up on a Super Bowl quality team.
You need not have worried though. The game was, unfortunately, on TV here in Houston, and the entire city got to witness you do your best Rosenfels impersonation. So if anybody has the right to be mad, it’s the fans. And they should be pissed off at you.
Seeing as how you essentially failed to show up for the second half of the game, I don’t know why it is that you should be so upset that the fans didn’t show up for the second half of the game. The fans are paying to watch your awful play, and if they don’t want to stick around to watch you and your teammates give away a third straight game, then they shouldn’t have to stick around. You’re getting paid -- thanks to these people buying tickets -- so you should be sending them all thank you cards for buying the tickets in the first place, much less send them a thank you for even bothering to show up at the game.
I’m sorry that you’re angry, Matt. But we’re mad at you. We’re tired of you putting up great stats during the first half of the game, but then when it really counts, you become Mr. Turnover. So screw you, Matt. May you be replaced by a real quarterback soon.
A Pissed Off Texans Fan
