Houston Texans fans aren’t happy and honestly who can blame them?
It seems like the Texans were taking a couple steps forward by letting Case Keenum work out the kinks of being an NFL quarterback during this lost season, but head coach Gary Kubiak changed things up Sunday by inserting former starting quarterback Matt Schaub into the lineup in the third quarter.
The decision didn’t really work out as planned for Kubiak, as Schaub was unable to throw a touchdown pass (Keenum had one TD pass in the second quarter) and the Texans earned their eighth consecutive loss by a 28-23 to the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders now have four wins, double the overall total of the Texans.
To help matters, Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson (the longest tenured Texan player) got into an argument, which really didn’t help at all, no matter what either player is saying to the media.
Sunday was possibly the worst lost of the season when it comes to having any momentum for the remainder of the season. The playoffs are out of sight, a winning record can’t happen, and the best the Texans can hope for is to win out for the remainder of the season to finish 8-8.
Anyway, here are some reactions from fans on Twitter on all the above topics. The next game for the Texans is Sunday when they host the one-win Jacksonville Jaguars. Sadly, this game could even be interesting for the Texans.
@TBDintheAM It's okay if Andre Johnson walks off with a minute to go, Matt Schaub has been checking out with 3 Quarters to go all season.

If Gary Kubiak puts Matt Schaub back in the game, Bob McNair should pull him off the bus at the airport and fire him ala Lane Kiffin.

I supported Kubiack right up until he put Matt Schaub back in the game. Time to start looking for a new head coach.

The Texans need to figure out if Keenum is the qb of the future for them and pulling him yesterday was not a good idea.

You are what your record is? This tells everything. Kubiak's in his 8th season is 61-61 #Texans

Hard to believe that the Falcons and Texans have the same record as the Buccaneers and only one more win than the Jaguars.

If I'm @johnson80, I'm sitting McNair and Smith down today and I'm telling them that if a change isn't made I'm taking my talents elsewhere.

I would cry if @johnson80 left Houston after his contract. I wouldn't blame him tho. You deserve better, but please STAY.

But, honestly, who cares what happened between Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson? The team stinks. People argue.
