“Matt gives us our best chance to win,” Kubiak said,per Tania Ganguli. “It was a tough decision, real tough.”
While I’m sure that Kubiak actually gave this some thought, it isn’t as though he has a decent replacement option on the team’s roster. T.J. Yates is currently Schaub’s backup and Case Keenum as their No. 3 option.
Schaub looks to have lost his confidence while opposing defenses are sitting on any route under 15 yards. Losing TE Owen Daniels for an extended period of time won’t help things, but I expect the Texans to establish the run-game against a very poor run-defense this weekend. Hopeful that will help to open things up for Schaub and the play action attack.
