RTC: Pick-sixes can be game-changers

Reading the coverage of the Texans...

The Seahawks have not returned any interceptions for touchdowns, but Texans quarterback Matt Schaub leads the league in pick-sixes thrown, writes Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. Robertson also has an interesting paragraph about how some great quarterbacks have had a penchant for throwing interceptions that were returned for touchdowns.

Schaub is a hot topic this week, as quarterbacks tend to be. CSNHouston.com's Dave Zangaro writes that Schaub and his coaches know he has to be better.

The MMQB quotes Emmy-winning actor Jim Parsons on why he loves the Texans. Also on this one-page magazine, Andrew Brandt translates what he thinks Schaub means when he says "I've got to be better."

Two interesting posts from Patrick D. Starr of StateoftheTexans.com taking a look at some X's-and-O's issues. Starr offers suggestions on some changes he thinks could help the Texans, and then uses All-22 film to break down plays by cornerback Johnathan Joseph and inside linebacker Joe Mays.

Post-loss, the Texans have a sense of urgency, writes Brian Smith of the Chronicle.
