Matt Schaub had a horrendous final season in Houston last year, but his start to this campaign in Oakland is not going too smoothly either.

After the highly touted Texans flamed out spectacularly, with the quarterback flaming out as well, Schaub needed a new home and the Raiders gave him $8-million US guaranteed over two years. The assumption was he’d be taking the snaps there.

But then rookie Derek Carr had an excellent pre-season and the second-round pick was handed the job earlier this week.

Carr completed 66% of his passes for 326 yards, four touchdowns and only a single interception.

Schaub played the good teammate, but is obviously unhappy about the turn of events.

“I’m definitely disappointed, but it wouldn’t do me or the team any good if I just stood here and felt sorry for myself,” Schaub told reporters.

“I only know how to handle things one way.
