Aaron Rodgers has a higher QB rating and so is clearly the better player.

It was even more nuanced; something along the lines of, "well Aaron Rogers has a better passer rating on third downs on odd numbered dates, when the wind is between 11 and 19.5 MPH. He is obviously superior and you're a fool for considering Schaub better than him."

These stats are misleading to say the least. If we had any sort of a running game, Schaub wouldn't be throwing the ball as much. The numbers might look good individually.

But teamwise, those numbers reflect a one dimensional offense.

They aren't misleading at all. They say that we have a very good QB, a very good TE, a very good WR, and a very good passing offense.

We are #10 in yards per game.
We are #12 in points per game.

These are the stats that tell us we have a one dimensional offense. The ones posted mean exactly what they say.

They aren't misleading at all for the QB or the quality of the players involved. The lack of a running game with the entire league knowing it means Schaub is getting it done in adverse circumstances not positive ones. This isn't some kind of slop time issue. This is getting it done passing because the team can't get it done rushing. What that means for the team is certainly a valid discussion, but wasn't my point here. These individuals are having stellar years so far.

Anybody that doesn't double AJ is a fool. Anybody that tries to cover OD with a LB is a fool. And anyone who thinks Schaub is a system QB who is just a glorified backup QB is a fool

Schaub is vastly underrated. The analyst don't like him because he doesn't have the rocket arm and is slow. What he brings to the table is the intangibles that make a team win. He makes few mistakes, reads defenses well and is very accurate. A strong arm is nice...but it doesn't make you a winner.

It is even more impressive that we can score like this without a significant running game and a suspect interior line. He might not be Manning or Brady...but I don't know how anyone in their right mind who has been watching the Texans this year can think he is a below average qb.

I said it earlier....no way the Texans win today's game without Schaub's great performance.

The individual results come as a result of no running game. And I still say that if we had a running game, Schaub wouldn't throwing the ball as much. Therefore the stats are the result of being forced to throw it all the time. That's misleading.

I'm not going to get all warm and fuzzy over what, in my view, are misleading stats, individual or not.

I don't think these stats would fall off quite as much as you think if we found our running game. They might dip a bit but the only real difference would be we would be averaging about a TD more per game.

Of course they are skewed over what Kubiak might want in an ideal world. But that is irrelevant to individual capability. These players are getting it done in spite of the lack of a running game and as you say at the same time because of the lack of a running game. Point still remains they are showing they can get it done under adverse conditions. Nothing misleading in that. Big Ben isn't supposed to be throwing this much either. Does it somehow take away from what he has done that they don't have a running game like they would like?

Both Manning and Brady's respective football teams have W-L records that closely reflect their stats. If you showed the Texans' stats to someone who is unfamiliar with the team or their record, they would think, just based on stats, that we're one of the top teams in league. We're not.

Both of those defenses have outplayed ours. Heck, Indy's D might be more impressive than their O at this point. Ours is coming around and has been a big part of the last two wins. Misleading would be to ignore that half of the game.

I've been critical of Schaub, but I think he's far from an NFL backup. I think he is a top 10 QB the way he is playing, but he still has moments where he acts like he doesn't know what to do with the ball. 2 sacks today were because of what I consider indecision on his part. Maybe he's trying to limit mistakes (i.e. throwing a ball that could get intercepted), but it seems more like he's waiting a bit too long to decide what he wants to do. Again, this is just some of the time. I realize nobody is going to be perfect on every play. His production is solid. I can't say he is a winner yet. He is 14-15 as a starter for the Texans. It's a great improvement over what this team has had in the past, though.

There is a term "coverage sack" for a reason. Think about how many times he chucks the ball away to avoid a sack for the OL and the loss of yardage as well. To be clear, I am by no means saying he doesn't make mistakes.

I will listen to an argument that says Schaub's numbers place him above his status as a QB in the league. That said, a team who has maybe the best WR in the league, a top 5 TE, and a RB who is better catching the ball out of the backfield than running between the tackles, should not be criticized for passing to win football games. At least, we have a QB good enough to operate an offense that asks him to pass more than he may or may not should.

I believe the word is synergistic. OD would look like a schlub (exaggeration for emphasis) with some QB's say for instance HWWNBN or Rosenfels (where OD averaged almost half as much per game as under Schaub) who both could not see the middle of the field if it was on Jerry Jones' magnascreen. These guys are feeding off each other right now. Nobody is getting some easy ride.

I understand what you mean and Slaton is doing good job catching the ball out of the backfield. But, in order to make our O multi-dimesional and make our O more unpredictable, we need to establish running game up in the middle IMO.

I agree, we especially need a run game for games like these when we want to kill some clock in the second half. If we can't do that then we will have to be more like the saints and keep trying to pile on the points. We really let up in the second half, and it almost cost us.. hopefully our players and coaches will learn from this.

Remember we have not had a bye week, so some quarterbacks have had only 6 games to put up numbers vs our 7.

That does concern me. Throwing aside the idea of scoring on the ground, if you can't have a confidence in at least getting a few first downs on the ground grinding the clock then you need to stay in the air based attack mode that got you on top in the first place. I don't like teams running up scores but this is a case of necessity rather than showboating.

If that were the case, he'd be getting CRUSHED if he were an average QB.
Teams love to shut the run down, so they can get you to pass on every
down. It's called TEE-ING off.

You blitz Schaub, he's good enough to kill you deep. Period.

We are 19th in the league on sacks while being 2nd in the league on attempts. For perspective. Schaub definitely waits to the last moment to see if something develops and sometimes takes a hit or a sack that could be avoided. For every one of those, there are 5 he avoids by sliding or dumping the ball.

To that point, our defense gave up on average more than 200 rushing
yards per game for the first 3 games:
Team record: 1-2

The last four games, the Texans defense gave up on average LESS THAN
60 RUSHING YARDS A GAME!!
Team Record: 3-1

People are overreacting to this win, when the reason the game was so close
has NOTHING to do with Schaub, OR the defense.

The disease plaguing this team right now is "Steve Slaton Fumblitis."

If we don't cure it BEFORE the Colts game, we WILL be beat!

His pocket presence has been great this year. He does take coverage sacks but for a guy with no athletic ability he manages to break containment and throw the ball away at an astounding rate. Another big improvement, when he goes down he holds onto the football for the most part. I could really get used to this.

Our offense can probably pass on just about anybody, but can't run on nobody. This is a concern, but still, we are putting up points. Just remember that a one dimensional offense can get you into the playoffs, but seldom wins Super Bowls. We need to get our running act togeather. Missing our two starting guards isn't helping any, but thank the football gods the backups can pass protect good enough for Schaub to complete a lot of passes.

If we ever get a line that can run block as well, we'll be kicking some serious butt in this league.

If you normalize the numbers on a per-attempt basis, then Schaub is still have a very impressive year. In my mind, there are 20 starting QBs worth tracking this season (Schaub, Rogers, Brees, Peyton, Eli, Roethlisberger, Favre, Orton, Brady, Rivers, Romo, Flacco, McNabb, Palmer, Ryan, Warner, Hasselbeck, Garrard, Cassel and Cutler). We can pretty much presume the stats for the QBs of the other 12 teams are putrid. Against those 20, this is where Schaub ranks on a per-attempt basis.

TD percentage (6.43%): #3 behind, in order, Brees and Peyton

Yards per attempt (8.33 yds): #7 behind Rodgers, Roethlisberger, Peyton, Brees, Romo and Rivers

Interception percentage (2.01%): #9 behind Orton, Rodgers, McNabb, Favre, Rivers, Garrard, Brady and Peyton. In other words, the eight listed get picked less often than Schaub.

Sacks pecentage (4.60%): #8 behind Peyton, Brady, Eli, Ryan, Flacco, Brees and Orton.

QB Rating: #4 behind Peyton, Rodgers and Brees.

The only QB ahead of Schaub in every one of those categories is Peyton. In fact, Schaub and Peyton are the only QBs in the top 10 in each of the above categories. Brees is #13 in interception percentage. Roethlisberger and Rodgers are at the bottom in sack percentage (along with Jay Cutler). Brady is #11 in yards per attempt.

So even if you control for the number of attempts, it is apparent that Schaub is playing at an extremely high level so far.

I would love to see where our O and the respective individuals would be if we had a running game. I bet they would be through the roof. Every team in the league knows we can't run, but they still can't stop the pass. Schaub, while not perfect, has done an excellent job. He's hitting all the improvement milestones we were all bitching about last year: making better decisions and protecting the ball. One area that is seriously concerning me is his lack of arm strength. He's underthrown some balls that could've been picked off if the receivers hadn't broken then up or were dropped. Some of those were with pressure in his face or he was getting hit as he threw, but they are concerning, nevertheless.

So this is what he looks like when he doesn't have to sit for 4 games in the first half of the season.

I don't see how you can look at the stats and not be satisfied. He 's had one terrible game so far (jets), and I think the line is doing a decent job in pass pro.

Elite passing offense. Schaub has to get some credit for that.
