Texans quarterback Matt Schaub will be on the Jim Rome (radio) Show today at 1 p.m. CT. You can listen to it live on SportsRadio 610 AM.
Schaub was on SIRIUS NFL Radio this morning around 11, and we're in the process of tracking that interview down so we can post it as a podcast on HoustonTexans.com. Schaub also was on SR 610 this morning at 8 a.m. for his weekly radio show with Marc Vandermeer and John Lopez.
So why all the media love for Schaub? It's simple. He leads the NFL with 14 touchdown passes after a four-touchdown game at Cincinnati. Schaub is second in the league with 1,810 passing yards and has completed 65.3 percent of his passes (ninth) with a 102.7 passer rating (sixth).
Peter King has taken notice of Schaub (with a little coddling from Texans VP of communications Tony Wyllie), mentioning Schaub in his weekly Monday Morning Quarterback column on CNNSI.com. King puts Schaub and the Texans in a tie for 14th in his "Fine Fifteen" ranking of NFL teams.
Later in his MMQB, King gives a few Texans not named Matt Schaub some props. He names rookie linebacker Brian Cushing one of his two defensive players of the week (page 3) and gives a shoutout to running back Steve Slaton's receiving ability (page 5) as well as mentioning strong safety Bernard Pollard.
Be sure to tune into Texans TV today at 3:30 p.m. CT to watch Texans coach Gary Kubiak live during his weekly press conference. Schaub is certain to be one of the topics that he discusses.
