His strengths has been his ability to read defenses and keep drives a live by buying time in the pocket.
Last night though, he looked dumb at times. Schaub has been very inconsistent throughout his career here. Even though he put up a lot of yards last year, he was still inconsistent if you take the entire year into account.
I think Schaub is a good enough QB to win with...He's not elite, but if we could field a better defense to take some of the pressure off the offense I think we'd be a lot better.
spot on. I pointed this out a couple of years ago and got shouted down. I noticed then that wide open guys would have to wait on the ball and have to settle for long gains on what should have been TD catches.
That said, I still think his decision making (most of the time) and knowledge/understanding of this offense makes up for his average arm (again, most of the time).
Getting rid of Schaub won't cure a defense that gives up 28 pts/game. That's the issue that needs to be fixed.
saaay... Orlovsky has a strong arm, you want to start him??
