Schaub is not a QB that will take the game on his shoulders and win it. He's the type of QB that can help be part of a good squad that wins games by avoiding self-destructive mistakes. Sure, he is capable of winning games, and has and probably will some more. But for every win that he's taken on his shoulders, there will another game that he tried and failed. Yesterday was a prime example. He marched them down the field into scoring position...and lays an egg.
In all seriousness, the growing disparity between good Matt and bad Matt is what's alarming. If bad Matt was 80% of what good Matt was, then I don't think we'd see the wheels come off quite so much. But when he's posting ratings that are 40 points apart, there are some issues.
