Matt Schaub showed the fans of Houston grit and tenacity on Sunday against the Titans, but apparently more than just Houston has noticed. The Texans quarterback has been named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 25 of 39 passing performance. Schaub threw for 4 TDs and 357 yards, which was good for a 127.8 QB rating.
Matt takes a lot of heat in the national media, mostly for being injury prone but also for holding the ball too long. Only a season with little or no time missed will dispel the notion that he is fragile, so it is good to see Schaub recognized by the entire league for his presence in the pocket. He isn't a flashy guy and he certainly won't win many foot races, but has all the potential in the world to be the quarterback that Gary Kubiak and Kyle Shanahan need him to be.
