2009 Review

matt schaub collage

Matt Schaub's theme song of 2009 should be Stevie Wonder's "For Once in My Life", because in reality, for once in his life, Schaub actually stayed healthy.  Before last season, the one big knock against him was that he was more fragile than the Mona Lisa - hence the nickname “Glass Joe” (Mike Tyson’s Punch Out).  However, in 2009, he finally proved his critics wrong by turning in a full 16-game season that was nothing short of spectacular.  He led the Texans to their first winning season as a franchise with a 9-7 record, yet just missed out on the playoffs.  Schaub also ended up leading the league in a number of statistical categories and was at his best when the team needed it most, winning his last four games of the season, including the final game where he outdueled Tom Brady and the Patriots to secure a winning season.  With Andre Johnson in the fold for at least the next few years, the sky’s the limit for this kid.


matt schaub 2009 stats

~ Ranked first in the league with 583 attempts

~ Set career bests in regular season wins (9), completions (396), attempts (583), completion percentage (67.9%), yards (4,770), passing TDs (29), yards/attempt (8.2), yards/game (298.1), and QB Rating (98.6)

~ Set Houston Texans franchise records in nearly every major QB statistical category (it helped that he got sacked much less than David Carr).

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Schaub will have all the confidence in the world as he looks to build on his stunning 2009 season.  There will still be plenty of hypercritics out there knocking his injury-riddled past, but as a fantasy owner, the mud-slingers should be ignored come draft day, as Schaub has come to play. He may not crack the fantasy big three of Rodgers, Brees, and Manning, but then again, he just might.  He’ll have the necessary weapons to repeat those 2009 numbers, as Andre Johnson and Co. will all still be around.  Plus, up-and-coming wide receiver Jacoby Jones will be in a contract year, so his play as a WR3 should be motivated to say the least.  Expect at least 4000+ yards and 25+ TDs, with the high probability of quite a bit more.

~ The offensive line did well enough to keep him upright in 2009, and should be able to do so again in 2010. In fact, they allowed fewer sacks in '09 than in '08.

~ After missing the playoffs on a tie-breaker, Schaub and Co. will be motivated to do even better this year

~ Andre Johnson has become the best wide receiver in the game, hands-down

~ Help is coming at the running back position in Ben Tate, and if Steve Slaton fixes his fumbling problem, this area could end up in the top tier for 2010

Should Schaub go down like he has in the past, Dan Orlovsky would be his handcuff.  However, before you grab him late in your draft, you might want to take this clip into consideration...

Injury Report


In his first few season, he was a huge risk to injuries. But he played in all 16 games last year (11 in the 2008 season), so we are moving him to a yellow light. If you draft Schaub, make sure to draft a suitable backup player just in case.

Jeff Zrebiec said Ravens coach John Harbaugh "has been noncommittal" on his starting quarterback.


Pyro's take: Ravens say that quarterback Matt Schaub is probable to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Ravens coach John Harbaugh has been noncommittal about whether Schaub or Jimmy Clausen will start the game.--Jeff Zrebiec

Matt Schaub (chest, shoulder) will be the Ravens' starting quarterback "if he's close to 100 percent."


Pyro's take: Jamison Hensley reported via ESPN that "Ravens coach John Harbaugh says that Matt Schaub will play if he's close to 100 percent but says he has two good options with Schaub and Jimmy Clausen"

Pyro's take: Jamison Hensley via Twitter "Ravens coach John Harbaugh said QB Matt Schaub passed concussion protocol after the game and again this morning."

I wonder if he got to (pick six) doctors to test him.

Texans steal 6th-round pick from Raiders for Schaub

The Houston Texans have traded quarterback Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders for a 2014 6th-round draft pick.

Pyro's take: It's a deal only the first family of Raider Nation could have pulled off, as Mark Davis, son of legendary Raiders owner, Al Davis, has certainly done well to preserve his father's legacy with this one.

With this latest trade, I figure it might be a good time to give a quick rundown of the Raiders QB ineptitude over the last decade (starts in parenthesis):

2013: Terrelle Pryor (9)/Matt McGloin (6)/Matt Flynn (1)
2012: Carson Palmer (15)/Terrelle Pryor (1)
2011: Carson Palmer (9)/Jason Campbell (6)/Kyle Boller (1)
2010: Jason Campbell (12)/Bruce Gradkowski (4)
2009: JaMarcus Russell (9)/Bruce Gradkowski (4)/Charlie Frye (3)
2008: JaMarcus Russell (15)/Andrew Walter (1)
2007: Josh McCown (9)/Daunte Culpepper (6)/JaMarcus Russell (1)
2006: Andrew Walter (8)/Aaron Brooks (8)
2005: Kerry Collins (15)/Marques Tuiasosopo (1)
2004: Kerry Collins (13)/Rich Gannon (3)

Matt Schaub harrassed at home, but still the starter

According to CBS Houston, Texans fans accosted Schaub at his home on Tuesday evening and "berated him for his poor play."

"A fan went to his house and told him off," a law enforcement source told CBS Houston.

Additionally the source told CBS Houston that another person "took pictures of his family." Thankfully those pictures weren't -- according to the report -- posted on Facebook or any social networks. According to the report it's believed that the fans "left on their own accord" and that "no arrests were made."

Pyro's take: Is this where we have gone as a society that when one of our professional sports teams is not performing up to par we go to the athletes house and tell him off? As a fan you have a right to boo players when you go to a game, you paid your money, but you have no right to take the fight to the player at him home NO MATTER WHAT!!! This is a game and we are privledged to be able to watch them on Sunday's, but don't be a crazy lunatic. Put things in perspective!!!

Schaub will start Sunday, and for his sake I really hope he has a good game or else is traded right after the game ends. This way he and his family don't have to hire armed guards to watch their house while they sleep.

Pro Bowl: Brady replaced by Matt Schaub

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady pulled out of the Pro Bowl due to multiple nagging injuries to his finger, shoulder, and ribs. He was replaced on the AFC roster by NFL passing yardage leader (4,770 yards), Texans QB Matt Schaub.

Pyro's take: Schaub was somewhat of a snub in the first place, and since Philip Rivers also pulled out of the game, Schaub ends up getting the Pro Bowl start on Sunday.
Schaub actually had more yards, more TDs, and a better QB rating than Brady did on the year, and most importantly, his team beat Brady's Patriots head-to-head in the final week of the season.

Matt Schaub active as expected

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (shoulder) is active in Week 14 as expected.

Pyro's take: It's safe to keep Schaub as your fantasy football QB today. Make sure you get him in your lineup.

Schaub practices in full again Friday

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (shoulder) practiced in full again on Friday and is being listed as probable on the team's Week 14 injury report.

Pyro's take: Schaub is good to go this weekend and should be a QB1 on your fantasy football team as normal.

Schaub practices in full again

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (shoulder) went through a full practice yet again on Thursday and barring a setback over the next couple of days, he will be starting this weekend against the Seahawks.

Pyro's take: Schaub will be playing on Sunday, and against a poor Seattle secondary, he should be played as a QB1 on your fantasy football team without fail.

12/10/09, 07:00 PM CST by Dawgmaticå

Schaub good to go on Sunday

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (shoulder) went through a full practice with the team today while coach Gary Kubiak said that "he'll be fine... He'll be ready to go."

Pyro's take: Schaub's MRI was clean and he seems like he should be healthy enough to take on the Seahawks this Sunday. He's a QB1 for your fantasy team this weekend.

Schaub optimistic for Sunday after MRI

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (dislocated left shoulder) said on Tuesday that after having an MRI on his left shoulder Monday, he’s optimistic he’ll be able to play against the Seahawks in Week 14.

Pyro's take: Coach Gary Kubiak was optimistic as well, but we'll see how his rehab goes over the next few days before saying he's a go on Sunday. Check back during the week as Schaub would be a clear QB1 for your fantasy football team going up against the Seahawks defense.

Schaub dislocates shoulder in loss

Texans quarterback Matt Schaub dislocated his shoulder on the first play of the game yesterday, the same shoulder he had surgery on back in 2007. However, he wasn't going to let it keep him out of the game:
“Same arm, same injury,” Schaub said. “Dislocated in the same spot. I don't think it's quite as severe as the one that happened two years ago.
“I came in, had some X-rays, and they reset it. I went back out there to play.”

Pyro's take: That's showing some serious toughness for a guy we had nicknamed "Glass Joe" before the season started (from the Nintendo game "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!").
Schaub will undergo an MRI today, but he doesn't expect the injury to cost him any playing time. Hopefully the fantasy football QB1 is right about that.

Schaub almost completely healthy

According to coach Gary Kubiak, Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (ankle) is "98 percent" healthy heading into this weekend's game against the Titans. "He's moving around real good this week," Kubiak said. "I don't see any limitations on him going into this game. He's obviously better than he was last week."

Pyro's take: We would hope so, as Schaub really stunk up the place last week against the Jets. With two of his top three receivers hurt this week and going against a tough Titans D, if you have a better fantasy option, we'd go with that.

Schaub practices for third straight day, will start on Sunday

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub (ankle) participated fully in practice for the third straight day on Friday and will start under center on Sunday against the Jets.

Pyro's take: "Glass Joe" has a good match-up this week and should be inserted into your fantasy lineups without reservation. Might as well get all you can out of the kid before he (inevitably) goes down again.

Matt Schaub is back on the field practicing

Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub was back on the field practicing with the first team on Tuesday. "He took half the reps today in practice, so he's progressing toward getting ready to go. So it was a positive move forward for him," coach Gary Kubiak said. Schaub's status for Week 1 is still unknown.

Pyro's take: After the team announced Rex Grossman as their backup QB to start the season, anyone in Houston who ever saw him play for the Bears just kissed the person next to them after hearing the news on Schaub... as did Andre Johnson owners.

Matt "Glass Joe" Schaub injured once again

He finished the game with 10 of 14 for 108 yards and an INT and 10 yard rushing.

Pyro's take: Did anyone see the play? He got "boo"'d out of bounds, was barely touched, and all of the sudden has a sprained ankle? This guy's chances of chalking up 16 games are as remote as Turtle's chances of landing Meadow Soprano in real life. If I were Gary Kubiak, I would fine Schaub every time he attempted to scramble.

No news means good news for Matt Schaub

The Houston Texans' QB Matt Schaub, aka Mr. Glass, has remained healthy thus far this offseason, and is ahead of where he was this time last year when he was recovering from shoulder surgery.

Pyro's take: This is definitely news, because if Schaub can stay healthy, the Texans are a dynamic team. But if he goes down, we hesitate to put our faith in backups Dan Orlovsky and Rex Grossman. So no news means good news for Schaub.
