HOUSTON -- Matt Schaub has managed to keep his starting job, and the beleaguered Houston quarterback vowed to turn things around this week. "I need to be better," he said, "and Ill be the first to admit that." Houston coach Gary Kubiak said Wednesday that Schaub would start on Sunday against St. Louis, but added that staying with him wasnt an easy choice. "It was a tough decision -- real tough," Kubiak said. "But I feel like its the best thing for our football team this weekend." Schaub has had a terrible three weeks. He has thrown six interceptions -- three of them returned for touchdowns -- and the Texans have dropped three straight. Kubiak said Monday that Schaub remained the starter, but added that he would evaluate the quarterback situation this week. After two days of deliberating, he decided to stick with the 10-year veteran. "A lot of thought went into it, a lot of evaluations and things going on, but I thought it was the best decision going into this game," Kubiak said. Schaub will have to direct the offence this week without tight end Owen Daniels, who was placed on the injured reserve/designated for return list with a broken fibula in his right leg and will be out eight weeks. Schaubs recent poor play has prompted vitriol and a call to bench him in favour of backup T.J. Yates from a segment of Texans fans. Some people have recently began driving by his home and taking photos, causing Schaub to call NFL security. He admitted to contacting security about the drive-by photos, but denied a report of a fan going to his door and shouting obscenities Tuesday night. Schaub said despite the incidents, hes happy at his home and has no plans to move to a gated community. He was troubled by the situation and acknowledged being worried about the safety of his wife and three young daughters. But said theres a simple solution to ending the harassment. "Its the world we live in," he said. "Theres passionate fans out there for better or worse and I understand that ... you hate for it to come to that because were better than that as a society and a community. But its the nature of what we do. The only thing that can correct that is going out and beating the St. Louis Rams this week." Kubiak has expressed concern that such a brutal stretch may have shaken his quarterbacks confidence. When asked about that, the 32-year-old Schaub denied any struggles in that area. "Not one bit," he said as he stood perfectly straight looking even taller than his already imposing 6-foot-5. "Im supremely confident in my abilities and what I can do on the football field. I just need to get back to being conscious of the details and being technically sound." Kubiak, a former quarterback, has talked often with Schaub this week, but knows that talking doesnt change anything. He has to see results on the field. "Youre OK when you start playing better and your team starts winning games," he said. "Thats when you get OK. I understand that. Im just trying to help him work through it. Im trying to do ... everything I can, from my perspective as a coach, to help a player work through something." Justin Tuck Raiders Jersey . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. Rod Streater Raiders Jersey . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. http://www.jerseyfootballraidersgear.co … rs-jersey/ .ca!

Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1.SAN FRANCISCO -- Wide receiver Mario Manningham is back for the San Francisco 49ers, activated Monday from the physically unable to perform list and available for Sundays home game against the Carolina Panthers. The 49ers, 6-2 and riding a five-game winning streak following the bye week, also waived cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and activated cornerback Eric Wright from the reserve/non-football injury list.
