Matt Schaub had a nut-job fan show up at his house and tell him off.

Let me count the things wrong with that, I'll leave out the obvious.

What good does this do for you dumb fan? Now you got your QB paranoid everywhere he goes. Now he is fearing for his children's safety. Like the guy needed more things to think about, he is under contract and if he just stopped trying who can blame him, he is getting paid either way.
It is not like the Texans don't have other problems, to put all of this blame on the QB is pointless.

I'd like to see him purposely throw the first pass in his next game deep into the stands just to make a statement, here it is you idiots, you can have the ball.

Schaub was a backup to Vick, then got traded when the birds drafted Ryan, so to put so much stock in a backup you are asking to be let down.

In closing if you want to tell off a player, pay your money, buy a ticket and yell away from the stands or even use a loud speaker when the player gets off the bus.

Stay away from players homes and families!

When I first read the story early this morning I felt the same way; however, the story as first reported is a bunch of b.s. Here is the latest info released by the Houston PD.

The Houston Police Department denied the CBS Radio Houston report in a post on its official Twitter account at 9:41 a.m. Wednesday.

"Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of 'angry fans' outside the Schaub residence on Monday," the post read.

They went on to say a family member at the home reported a suspicious male in the driveway taking pictures, but police were not called to the home.

This should tell you everything you need to know about realistic expectations from Matt Schaub.

This is Texas...he should have grabbed his gun, locked and loaded. Intruders on your property are at risk.

Glad to see the Texans struggling as I am a huge Colts fan. Schaub has been lousy so far but to the subject of the Thread he doesn't deserve someone coming to his house causing trouble. The person that did this must have no life.
