Locker Room Buzz: Houston Texans
By Tania Ganguli
SAN FRANCISCO -- Observed in the locker room after the Houston Texans' 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Coach is succinct: The first question for Texans coach Gary Kubiak was whether or not Matt Schaub was his starter: "Yes, he is," Kubiak replied, simply.
Leaving the field: Prior to walking into the locker room, Schaub was the fourth player off the field as the 49ers ran out the clock. Schaub was heckled roundly by San Francisco fans as he walked but stared straight into the tunnel. Andre Johnson was one of the last players to leave the field, and as he approached the sideline, he began peeling off his jersey and shoulder pads.
Support of a friend:Center Chris Myers is one of Schaub's closest friends on the team, and Myers offered support for Schaub postgame. He stressed that Schaub helped lead the Texans to a 20-3 halftime lead last week. "He's in a slump a little bit, but he's got the whole team at his back."
