Johnson says team still has faith in Schaub
The boos were loud when the Texans’ offense took the field in the fourth quarter for the possession following the Matt Schaub interception return for a touchdown.
And the Texans heard them.
“Fans are going to be fans,” wide receiver Andre Johnson said. “You have some that are loyal. You have some that are fair weather and they only come around when you win. I’ve been here when it was 2-14 and there was hardly anybody in the stands, so I really don’t care about what fans think. A lot of them don’t understand what players go through. They can talk about what they want to talk about.”
The Texans had a 17-point halftime lead before they blew it in the fourth quarter, then lost in overtime 23-20. It’s the team’s second straight loss after starting 2-0.
“It’s never easy," tight end Owen Daniels said. "You don’t like to hear them. It hurts to hear them. I’ve learned to ignore it. It’s just a part of what we deal with here. Pay money, you can do what you want but we’re playing our butts off and giving everything we’ve got. I’m worried about the guys in here, not the fans."
