As any NFL football fan will tell you?
Depending on the quality of the quarterbacks…
A football team either rises or falls from glory.
Sadly, for Matt Schaub?
He is taking the full brunt of this truth from some extremely scary, and misdirected, Houston Texan fans:
[via CBSLocal]Fans Accost Matt Schaub At His Home
Houston – (CBS HOUSTON): A source close to law enforcement told The Fred and Ted Show late Tuesday evening that Houston Police were contacted by the NFL after fans approached Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub at his home and berated him for his recent poor play.
No arrests were made.
“A fan went to his house and told him off,” said the source, adding that another person “took pictures of his family,” which were allegedly posted on Facebook. Fortunately, neither Schaub nor anyone in his family was hurt.
The irate fans left on their own accord before police could respond, and it’s believed Schaub and the Texans contacted NFL Security which asked for assistance from the Houston Police Department after the incident, according to the source.
Schaub has been under intense scrutiny following the team’s disastrous 2-3 start which has included the much maligned quarterback throwing a Pick-Six interception in an NFL-record four consecutive games. The Texans return home to Reliant Sunday at noon when they welcome the St. Louis Rams to town.
Whereas Peyton Manning?
He is experiencing just the exact opposite, when it comes to fanfair reactions to his playing of late.
So much so?
[via AP] Broncos biggest NFL favorite ever in Vegas books ~By TIM DAHLBERG
LAS VEGAS (AP) — It looked like a mismatch even before Peyton Manning hooked up for his first touchdown pass to Wes Welker and the rest of the NFL found out just how bad the Jacksonville Jaguars really are.
But now it’s official. The Denver Broncos are the biggest favorite ever in an NFL game in this gambling city, a whopping four-touchdown pick Sunday at home against the hapless Jaguars.
Sports books in and around Las Vegas make Manning and the Broncos a 28-point favorite over Jacksonville, unheard of in an industry where half-point swings can be huge and most teams are rated within a few points of each other. But even the big line hasn’t stopped people from betting money on the Broncos, even after they didn’t cover the spread in Sunday’s 51-48 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
“It didn’t take people long to jump on the Broncos bandwagon, which is at its capacity now,” said Jay Kornegay, who runs the sports book at the LVH hotel. “And we expect that to continue.”
Big, GLARING, differences between these two quarterbacks.
So much so?
THIS (me) Houston Texan fan is rooting for the Broncs to win it ALL this year!
And all because?
It’s so very inspiring to watch a team being led by a quarterback who gives the game 100%…
Every. Single. Game!
