If you're an offensive team, you need the star QB. I couldn't tell you if Schaub or Stafford are that guy but game managers don't take offensive powerhouses to the promised land
Defense has carried SOME crap QB's to Super Bowls. Many offensive powerhouses never make it to the promised land. Dan Fouts? Offensive powerhouse, no SB appearance. Warren Moon and the Oilers? No SB. The Vikings with Billick/Dungy? No SB.
Your best chance at winning a Super Bowl is having a good team. And it really helps to have a top 10 defense. It's not necessary, but it definitely helps.
But the main points are:
1. Just because you have a great QB, that doesn't mean you're ever going to make it to a SB.
2. Just because you have an average QB, that doesn't mean you're doomed to not make it to the SB or that you won't win it when you get there.
So, is Schaub good enough to get us to a SB? If the rest of the team is good enough, yes. Right now, our defense wasn't good enough and Schaub/Rosenfels didn't play well enough. Hopefully, Schaub will continue to grow and learn.
