Schaub didn't know he was near 500 yards

9/20/2010

Matt Schaub had no idea he was approaching 500 passing yards as the Texans came back from a 17-point deficit to win in Washington.

He talked about that and Houston’s ability to build on the win against Indianapolis with the folks at KILT.

On whether or not it surprised him that he was nearing 500 yards as the game was going on:

“It did. I didn’t realize throughout the game it was going to be anywhere near that. I knew we were doing some good things, had big plays, and guys were making things happen in the secondary. My guys up front were battling against many different looks and many different blitzes, and did a great job against a very good defense, but I don’t think anyone really realized it was that many.”

On whether or not they felt like the game against Washington was important to win to prove the win against Indianapolis wasn’t a fluke:

“In a way it was, most certainly. After the win last week against Indianapolis at home to open our season, a lot of us were saying, ‘okay what do we do now?’ What we do now is go out and prove that the game against Indianapolis wasn’t just a one-time thing, we were a team to be reckoned with, and we’re for real. Especially to go on the road against Washington, in a very tough place to play, against a very good football team and prove the Texans are coming to play this year.”
