Bob Levey/Getty Images(HOUSTON) — Even though he’s been the subject of recent criticism, the Houston Texans are standing behind their quarterback, Matt Schaub.

“I don’t see a lack of confidence,” Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said. “I see some poor decision-making situations. Something that he has to handle, something we can help him handle.”

During the team’s 23-20 overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Schaub threw an interception that ended up being returned for a touchdown.

“How short of a leash is he on?” Kubiak said, before pausing. “He’s our quarterback.”

Schaub has been with the Texans since 2007 and had cemented his status as the team’s franchise quarterback until now. He’s never thrown more than 15 interceptions in a single season since coming to Houston, but he already has six in four games so far.
