Matt Schaub 'getting his mojo back'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) After a disastrous 2013 season with the Texans, quarterback Matt Schaub is settling in with the Raiders and regaining his confidence, reports the Sacramento Bee.

"Schauby's getting his mojo back," defensive tackle Antonio Smith told the paper. "He's getting his confidence back. He's starting to believe in himself again.

"He's starting to throw with confidence. Those are things you need to be a successful quarterback. You would be surprised just much a mindset is important in this game. ... The moment you are doubting yourself is the moment you start throwing a lot of interceptions and stuff."

Raiders coach Dennis Allen thinks Schaub can again be a Top-10 quarterback.

"I think he's in a good frame of mind," Allen said. "I think he's very hungry. I think he's excited about the new opportunity. I think anytime you go into something new there's a little bit of, maybe it's an increased focus, an increased intensity level, because it is new. You kind of force yourself out of your comfort zone a little bit. I think he's done that."


Raiders confident in Matt Schaub

"I don't have any problems with Matt Schaub's confidence," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think he's in a good frame of mind. I think he's very hungry. I think he's excited about the new opportunity."

Schaub should benefit from a change of scenery, Allen said.

"I think anytime you go into something new, there's a little bit of, maybe it's an increased focus, an increased intensity level, because it is new," Allen said. "You kind of force yourself out of your comfort zone a little bit. I think he's done that. I think he's been very focused and very driven this offseason and I don't think there's any question that he's got something that he wants to go out and prove."

Offensive coordinator Greg Olson said Carr has been "better than we thought he would be." Carr came in behind Schaub and second-year player Matt McGloin during practice but has already started taking away second-team snaps from McGloin.

"I really, really like him," Olson said of Carr. "Everybody knew he was accurate, but he is more accurate than we thought. ... We'll have to wait and see how he does against a live rush, but so far his intelligence, accuracy and quickness in getting the ball out has been excellent."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"To come to an offense where the coach is looking to give you more freedom, and looking to give you more control of things," Schaub said when asked what he's looking forward to. "I had that in some aspects in Houston, but there are things I'm being asked to do here that I didn't have control of in Houston. I would have loved to, but we just weren't in control of it. To now be in that position, and being the quarterback, that's such a great place to be because you can get everyone on the same page. You can get into a great play, a better play that you had called."

Matt Schaub officially dealt from Houston to Oakland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) It's official - quarterback Matt Schaub is a Raider. The Texans have traded him to Oakland for the fifth pick in the sixth round of the May draft.

Schaub will take over as the starting quarterback for the Raiders. Houston will almost assuredly use its first overall selection on a quarterback, which is rumored to be Blake Bortles.

The 33-year-old Schaub would have commanded far more had he not struggled mightily in 2013. He completed 219 of 358 passes for 2,310 yards, 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He set a dubious NFL record by tossing a pick-six in four consecutive games.


Matt Schaub reportedly on the way to Oakland for physical


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) Only a failed physical stands in the way of the Raiders completing a trade with the Texans that would make Matt Schaub their starting quarterback, per the San Francisco Chronicle. Oakland has dealt a late-round pick to make it happen.

The trade is the latest move by general manager Reggie McKenzie in an attempt to piece together a winning team in 2014. The 10 players he has signed in March are all at least 29 years old.


Report: Raiders set to trade late pick for Matt Schaub


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Raiders will trade a late-round draft pick to acquire Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, a source has told ESPN.

Such a deal would likely ensure that Houston takes a quarterback (reportedly Blake Bortles) with the first overall pick and the Raiders bypass that position with the first selection in the 2014 draft. It will also place the Texans about $10 million under the cap, allowing them to improve their struggling defensive line.

No announcement of a deal has been made.

Schaub hit rock-bottom last year, throwing for 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions before losing his starting job. He threw for a pick-six in an NFL-record four straight games.
