Houston Texans fans burn Matt Schaub jersey (Video)
The Houston Texans were one of the teams favored to contend for an AFC Championship entering the 2013 season. However, back-to-back losses to the Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks already have fans questioning whether the team has improved enough to avoid another embarrassing playoff loss or missing the postseason altogether. More specificially, Texans fans are losing faith in Matt Schaub.
Schaub threw two interceptions in an overtime loss to the Seahawks on Sunday. He has now thrown eight touchdowns and six interceptions through four games. After the game, a group of Seahawks fans stood around and burned Schaub’s jersey. In the video below that The Big Lead passed along, which contains some NSFW language, you can see a guy collecting money to cover the cost of the jersey before burning it.
The photo above that our friend Lance Zierlein of Sports Talk 790 in Houston shared with us shows the same gentleman dousing the jersey in lighter fluid. The Texans are hardly out of playoff contention with a 2-2 record, but fans are obviously frustrated already. Many people have been waiting for Schaub to reach the next level over the past few seasons and it simply hasn’t happened. Now, he’s officially getting the same treatment all these unfortunate souls got before him.
