Will Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub Bounce Back in 2013?
After an 11-1 start, all signs pointed to the 2013 NFL playoffs going through the Houston Texans when it came to AFC teams considering they seemed to have one of the best overall teams in football. Unfortunately, things fell apart over the final six games of the season as they finished with a 2-4 record–with most of the blame falling on the shoulder of quarterback Matt Schaub.
At first, there was no reason to be concerned about Schaub as he threw for 19 touchdowns over the first 12 games of the season, but the fact that he threw just three touchdowns over the final six games is just one of the reasons why the quarterback received the most criticism for the team’s struggles. It would be one thing to have limited options in the passing game, but with Houston containing one of the league’s top wide receivers in Andre Johnson–there’s no excuse for Schaub to struggle with these types of numbers.
Schaub has already proven to be one of the league’s top quarterbacks when healthy and there’s every reason to believe the Texans will be one of the top contenders once again heading into 2013. Say what you want about Schaub, but the truth is he gives Houston their best chance of winning–even if he did struggle towards the end of the 2012 season.
If anything, expect Schaub to use what happened last season as motivation to bounce back even stronger heading into next year.

Alright, while I love to write about the hopes and dreams of the Atlanta Falcons, let’s slow it down for a second … The Falcons are not a great team, yet. Maybe they can be by Week 17, maybe Dan Quinn can pull the best out of his weakest role players, but right now, they’ve still got a ways to go. Here are the three biggest weaknesses on the Falcons roster: Read More
