Our friends at Sports Radio Interviews have a nifty little transcript of Matt Schaub’s interview with Sports Radio 610 yesterday night. He pretty much said typical Schaub things, but did admit that the season was virtually over:
On the interception to end the game:
“I was trying to bring Jacoby away from his man and trying to put it in a spot where he could make a play on the ball and it just was a little too far out front.”
On whether he’s worried about a coaching change:
“No, we’re not worried about that. We’re not thinking about that. We’re moving on to Tennessee and we’ve got to find a way to keep fighting and find a way to get a win.”
On whether this is a wasted year considering the talent with Andre Johnson and Arian Foster:
“We’re going to fall short of our ultimate goal and that’s the bottom line. They don’t give any points in this business for stats or things like that. It only comes down to winning and getting into the postseason and winning championships. That’s all that matters in this business.”
You can read the whole interview at the link above. He also talked about Gary Kubiak being at a loss for words, as well as how the defense stepped up. This is classic Schaub: a consummate professional even under what must be an excruciatingly difficult situation for him.
