Houston Texans -- Please Stop Burning Matt Schaub Jerseys


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. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
