Matt Schaub Biography
Matt Schaub was born June 25, 1981 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is a quarterback who plays for the Houston Texans. He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Virginia.
In March 2007, the Houston Texans acquired Schaub from the Falcons for second round picks in 2007 and 2008. As part of the deal, the teams also swapped first round picks in 2007, exchanging the Falcons' 10th pick with the Texans' 8th pick. Schaub was introduced to his new team at a press conference on March 22, 2007, and the subsequent day, the Texans released David Carr, opening the door for Schaub to become their long-term starter.
In each of the first two games of the 2007 season, Schaub threw for over 220 yards, a 71% completion percentage, and attained a quarterback rating of over 100; both games were victories for the Texans, winning 20-3 over the Kansas City Chiefs and 34-21 over the Carolina Panthers. The second victory marked the first 2-0 start in franchise history. In week four, he started against his former team, the Atlanta Falcons, in which he completed 28 of 40 attempts, with 317 yards, 1 touchdown, and no interceptions in what would be his second loss of the 2007 season.
Though Schaub was plagued with injuries throughout the 2007 season, he and backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels improved on the team's 2006 record of 6-10, bringing the Texans to their first .500 season with an 8-8 record which is also a first in the team's short history.
Schaub returned as the starter for the 2008 season. He played poorly in the first two games, losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans but then had a great game against the Jacksonville Jaguars despite another loss. He sat out the week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. In week 6, Schaub set the Texans franchise record for passing yards with 379 in a comeback win against the Miami Dolphins in which Schaub scored the winning TD on a QB draw with 3 seconds left. Schaub helped teammate wide receiver Andre Johnson lead the league in both receptions and receiving yards through week 8 of the season, having 56 catches for 772 yards. The new quarterback-receiver tandem had their best day together through midseason during the week 8 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals where Schaub threw for 280 yards, completing over 85% of his passes (24 of 28), 10 of those going to Johnson for 143 yards in the 35-6 rout. Schaub's season was broken up however with a knee injury against the Minnesota Vikings, which expected to keep him out for around 4 weeks, making Sage Rosenfels the new starter.
Against the Green Bay Packers, Schaub completed 28 of 42 pass attempts for 414 yards and 2 touchdowns, also leading the Texans down the field to set up a Kris Brown game winning field goal.
