Default Re: TJ Yates

Schaub is good. He is not as good as:

- Peyton Manning
- Tom Brady
- Aaron Rodgers
- Drew Brees
- Philip Rivers (though he is having a real down year)
- Ben Roethlisberger
- Eli Manning (Eli is way more clutch - the first 3 quarters Schaub may be better)

After that it gets tough. Flacco, Ryan, Vick, Stafford all might be better or worse - the jury is still out on Newton and Dalton.

The thing about the first list: with the exception of Rivers all of those guys have a ring - while none of the others have one. But the other thing about the first list: you have to be really lucky to land a guy like that. There is no guarantee that Luck will once be in that list. And Bradford right now looks rather unimpressive...

A guy like Schaub probably doesn`t win you a Superbowl. But he sure won`t lose you a Superbowl. He is a guy that 20 other teams would like to have - and a guy with whom we can win a Superbowl (if our defense and running game stay as good as they are).

Now if Yates can become a player like Schaub we`d be a real lucky team. But please don`t expect too much - there is a reason why he was a 5th round pick. There is some promise, but there are also a lot of question marks. If everything goes as usual he may become a borderline #2 QB.
