But despite what you might think, the average qb might be able to throw 60 yards on a good day with no one rushing him. Shaub did it with only a few seconds to read it, set his feet, and pull the trigger.
Is he elite? No.
Is he better than over half the QBs in the league? Yes.
Do his other qualities that he bring to the table (that a guy like Jamarcus Russel, Kyle Boller, and Cutler dont have) make up for not having one of the best deep balls in the game? Yes
<--- means he was just picking. In no way was he implying Jamarcus was/is a better QB than Schaub.
For the most part he agrees with you.
