When we go out this week we got to find a way to make these plays and we’re going to do it.” Matt Schaub responds to reporters. “We are going to learn from what we didn’t do last week and we are going to get it done this week.”

We also know that as professionals the Texans probably don’t require much motivational verbage in order to gear up for a game against a fellow AFC foe like the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yet we can’t help ourselves in wanting to pass on to Matt Schaub and the rest of the Houston Texans that….
YOU CAN DO IIIIIIIT!
