08:03 PM ET 01.14 | The Houston Texans' Super Bowl dreams ended in the same miserable fashion they did last year; same story, different executioner. But while some people are outright blaming Matt Schaub for disappearing in the biggest game of his life, his fellow teammates are circling around him to protect their quarterback and defend him from the sharp and harsh criticism being fired his way. MVP hopeful J.J. Watt defended Schaub, saying the people throwing rocks at him have never been in his situation before and need to get a life. Schaub himself responded to the criticism, saying the Texans performance on Sunday should not waver fans faith in the team, or in Schaub. But no matter how you spin it, the Texans are out in the second round for the second straight year, and this year they didn't have very many excuses.

The Texans need a tougher schedule to get them to the next level.

Schaub is a play-action QB. When the running game isn't working, or when the game state says they have to pass, he's just not the type to carry the team, especially against playoff-level opposition.

In fairness to Schaub, though, Houston does need to go out and get him some receivers.
