Fresh start ‘very important’ to Matt Schaub

Like it or not, Matt Schaub has been blamed for a lot of the short comings of the Houston Texans over the last couple of years. From the playoff losses to the pick-sixes, Schaub faced a lot of adversity in his career with the Texans and it had began to take its toll.

At his introductory press conference with the Oakland Raiders, the quarterback confirmed that after last season he was in bad need of a new beginning.

“Very important. A fresh start can do a lot of things for a player and a team. I’m one of those guys,” said Schaub. “Last year did not go at all how I had planned, given my prior nine years before that. I’m looking for a fresh start. I’m excited about the opportunity here and the players on this team, the coaches, the plan and the direction. Reggie has brought in a great mix of young players as well as veteran leaders and proven players in this business and I’m excited to be a part of the direction that this team is heading.”

Schaub also said he will take the lessons he learned from last season and move forward with his new team.
