Tommy Kelly: Matt Schaub 'choked, simple as that'

The Raiders ended an improbable Texans comeback during their 25-20 win Sunday thanks to a Michael Huff interception of Matt Schaub on the final play of the game (watch it below).

Although maybe it's worth noting that Huff's interception wasn't precisely a great play by Huff so much as a bad play by Schaub. Or, definitely worth noting -- and kind of mocking -- if you're Raiders defensive tackle Tommy Kelly.

"Old boy choked," Kelly said laughing sarcastically, according to Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. "All he had to do was run it in. He choked, simple as that."

Schaub disagreed with Kelly's sentiment, though he hadn't actually heard Kelly's sentiment; the Texans quarterback just doesn't think he's the second coming of Michael Vick.

"I'm not necessarily a guy that's going to make a whole lot of guys miss in the open field," Schaub said.

He's right, although he probably had a look at running the ball into the end zone on the final play. But he also had a shot at completing a pass to Jacoby Jones, who was running behind Huff, though the straight-on angle from behind Schaub makes you wonder what exactly he saw.



If you want to get technical about things, Schaub did choke -- he threw the ball to the other team on the final play of the game. But he probably shouldn't sweat a) the outcome of the game too much, or b) whatever Kelly has to say.

This isn't the first time this season he's egregiously run his mouth ("We ain't the Chiefs"), and all he's really doing at this point is taking away from what was an emotional and impressive Raiders victory.

He is right. He choked. Which means the raiders got lucky. Very lucky. Ol "just win baby" Davis got this one(win)for the football gods. Perfect
