Two steps forward, two steps back. That seems to be the case once again for the Houston Texans. After such a promising start to the year, the Texans find themselves in a familiar position after Sunday’s loss to the San Diego Chargers – around .500 and in need of a winning streak to make up ground in the AFC.
On Monday, Matt Schaub (who played well in defeat), joined KILT in Houston to talk about the struggles of the team, not just on defense where most of the blame seems to be directed, and what the Texans needs to do to right the ship before it’s too late. (Transcription via: SRI)
How he is feeling after yesterday’s loss to the Chargers:
“A little bit frustrated and disappointed but it’s a new day and we have got to come in and watch this thing and reset our focus and head to Jacksonville and get a win and get off this two game skid that we have had and we’ve got to refocus and get ourselves ready to go.”
On the notion that they were able to move the ball in the 2nd half but just wasn’t able to score:
“Yeah we left points on the board. Right before half, we left 4 points out there with the pass to Arian and then in the 2nd half we had a drive down there that I think we had 3rd and 2 or 3 or something like that inside the 10 and we got stopped and had to settle for a field goal there and then the other times we didn’t take advantage of the turnover that we got by Kareem on the interception, that didn’t count for points for us and then at the end there a couple of drives we didn’t execute to get points on the board. So, we left at least 8 points out there and if not more. That is the difference between winning and losing in this business.”
