Ugly Day At Reliant Stadium

Ugly Day At Reliant Stadium

For the Houston Texans, this might be rock bottom.

The team lost their fourth straight game, as the St. Louis Rams came to town, took a 17-6 lead at halftime and then added three touchdowns in the third quarter to cruise to a 38-13 win at Reliant Stadium.

The team is now 2-4 on the season and scheduled to visit the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday. Coach Gary Kubiak says there is plenty of blame to go around.

“For the past few weeks the finger of blame has been pointed in one direction a lot. But we sprung leaks all over the place,” Kubiak said.

However, insult was added to injury, especially for the one member of the Texans that has taken the most heat since the losing streak began.

Quarterback Matt Schaub had been playing well, but suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter. As he was writhing on the field in pain, some fans at the game cheered.

The cheering was not taken well by many of Schaub’s teammates, including cornerback Jonathan Joseph.

“Never for it. Never stand for it. If they are going to do it, don’t show the (expletive) up. Period,” Joseph said. “He’s still our quarterback. There’s no place in football for it.”

Running back Arian Foster also wasn't happy with the fans.

“That’s tasteless. I was extremely heated at that. I am not going to lie,” Foster said. “That’s now how I was brought up. That’s not the kind of man I am.”

Linebacker Brian Cushing also didn’t mince words.

“It’s barbaric. This is a good guy. This is a good football player and a good person. To see that kind of reaction is very upsetting,” Cushing stated.

Backup TJ Yates came in and threw a pick-6 himself. The Texans are now 2-4 and will visit Kansas City next week.
