Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub blew a game, deleted his Twitter account and saw his jersey burned all in the same week. Schuab knows he needs to shake off the disappointment and criticism from last week.

During an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Schaub promised to "cut it loose" against the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday in their head-to-head matchup for Week 5 of the 2013-14 NFL season.

“I’ve been around [criticism] enough that you just tune it out. You don’t even pay attention to it. You just go out and cut it loose.

“Yeah, I definitely think so,” he said. “[But] you know what? I don’t have time to really even process any of that, because it’s on to the next [game]. You don’t have time to look at the rearview mirror, good or bad. You have to have a short-term memory, or you’re going to be affected. That’s not the way I am. That’s not the way this team is.

Schaub made it clear he wouldn’t forget the jersey burning, and vowed to make that right.

“My goal is to make sure, when we’re done (with) this thing at the end of the year, he’s going back out, and he’s going to get one (No. 8 jersey) to wear."

Many have been questioning Schuab throughout the season on if he really is the answer at QB for the Texans, and if he has that winner-like instinct to carry this team to a Super Bowl.
