During an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday, Raiders safety Charles Woordson was asked if Matt Schaub can lead them.
“I think we’re counting on it,” Woodson said, via NFL.com. “I think every man on the team is counting on him being the guy. You know, you bring him over from Houston, and it’s been duly noted about the struggles that he had last year. But you can’t discount the year that he had before last year so we’re looking at last year as being an anomaly and that not being the true Matt Schaub.
“And the one thing I notice about him is he’s always talking to (defensive coordinator) Jason Tarver after practice. So this is a guy that understands how to get better, knows what to look at, and in order to make himself better he’s talking to the right people to help him get better. So we expect big things of him.”
Even though the Raiders drafted Derek Carr, they need Schaub to help them win now.
