He has two knocks on him. He was injury prone, which he is now completely shedding that image once he finishes his second straight year without missing a game and the other knock is his lack of a rocket arm and mobility.
I do agree that he underthrows our WRs, I think more so this year than I have ever seen in the past but give me a break. I believe we have a top 10 QB in the league. We now have a running game which is why he is not posting the inflated numbers as he did last year.
I know I know, we couldnt run the ball so thats why he had 4770 yards last year. If he wasnt worth a crap, there is no way we would have went 9-7 last year and he would have not led the league in his respective categories.
It is assenine to single out our pro bowl franchise QB seeing as how we have so many other issues.
You are just looking for things to ***** at now. I know we have completely run the "defense sucks" thread into the ground but choosing to say things like this is ridiculous.
You're probably on the Mario sucks bandwagon too huh?
This board wears me out sometimes but damnit, I must get on at least five times a day to get my Texans fix.
rep to you kind sir, I completely agree with you.
I really think that Schaub's issue this year is:
1. The line is not keeping defenders off of him so he's scrambling more and as we all know he is not the fleetist of foot.
2. He knows that winning the game rests on his shoulders. He knows that this defense is not going to help so he MUST get a touchdown EVERY possession. That fact causes him to either force throws (causes interceptions) or throw short (to not allow the interception). So he looks like he's doing a really bad job but he's trying to lead the team to wins, the D as it is right now does not help him.
That's the way I see it.
