Houston Texans

Please Stop Burning Matt Schaub Jerseys

10/2/2013 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Houston Texans are taking steps to stop more fans from lighting their Matt Schaub jerseys on fire outside of their stadium -- but it ain't to protect the QB's feelings.

TMZ spoke with a member of the Texans organization who tells us ... the team decided it needed to take action after watching a viral YouTube video which featured a bunch of fans flaming up a #8 jersey in the stadium parking lot after the team lost to the Seahawks last weekend.

We're told the team is making a concerted effort to "do a better job monitoring the people who tailgate" because jersey fires are a direct violation of the stadium's open flame policy.

The team should also do a better job monitoring Schaub ... 'cause if he didn't throw so many damn pick 6s (3 in the last 3 games), they probably wouldn't have had this problem to begin with.

If when he throws an interception, it be nice if the WRs and other players would actually tackle the defender that caught the ball. Not all those pick 6 shoul dhave been TDs if someone had tackled the guy.

Some fans are so stupid!!! I am a hawks fan ALL THE WAY so I thank Schaub for his screw up, but I think the way the supposed "Texans Fans" are reacting is foul, if Russell Wilson made those mistakes the 12th man would stand behind him REGARDLESS!! But I guess that's why the Hawks are are good as they are.......because their fans stand behind them and support them win or lose, maybe the Texans "fans" need to take a lesson from Seattle

GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Schaub jersey for sale, dirt cheap. Any takers? This fool has one more year left on his contract; what are the odds they will STILL keep em' at the helm of this sinking ship called The Texans. Damn shame we have Case and TJ both, ready, willing and more than capable of turning this mess around. But seriously iv'e got this Schaub jersey from several years ago, before I knew any better......

Seriously? People are ridicules! Every player has a bad game once in awhile. That includes Schaub. He's only human.

True Texan fans don't do this kind of s--t. Shame on you. To Texas gal, I will buy the # 8 jersey any time. It is a team lost, that penalty got them close enough for the field goal.
