Matt Schaub Loves the Fan Support

Posted Aug 12, 2014

QB Matt Schaub spoke to the media after the first of two joint practices with the Dallas Cowboys in Oxnard, Calif.

Q: You already knew what being a Raider was like, but today must have really confirmed it.

Schaub: “It’s fantastic the support, the fans that showed up and really showed up in a big way for us. It’s just a testament to the rich tradition of the Raider Nation. It was fantastic to have that type of support today.”

Q: How did today’s practice compare to the preseason game and the previous training camp practices?

Schaub: “It’s the same. You try to treat practice the same, but once you line up against another color jersey, it steps up a notch. So, it was very much like a game situation. We try to simulate as much as possible.”

Q: It was very much like a backyard atmosphere with everybody so close and loud.

Schaub: “Yeah, it did. With the crowd and just so many bodies. When you have two teams sharing a field, there are a lot of bodies around. So, it definitely ramps up a little bit.”
