assuming a blowout is beyond ridiculous.. the fact that there are so many votes to re-sign schaub has me concerned for our fans.. mediocrity, folks must love it..
"We realized what was on the line there," tight end Owen Daniels said. "It is unbelievable what T.J. was able to do, finding people down the field, avoiding the rush and making plays. It was so smooth. I've never seen anything like it."
seems like the truth hurts for schaub apologists...
Get real man. Everyone here likes that TJ has been able to play well in the situation, and I haven't heard anyone say that he hasn't already taken the #2 slot from Leinart but to say that people who think Schaub is better at this point than TJ are settling for mediocrity is dumb.
It's pretty obvious that Yates isn't as good at concealing handoffs on bootlegs, isn't as good at spotting blitz packages on the other teams defensive line, isn't able to notice blindside blitzes, and still gets a bit nervous and takes some wild and high throws. I am not saying that he won't be getting better at these things every week but you can't deny that he had plenty of overthrows on some easy to make short passes, and also took five sacks (not all of them were the Olines fault either).
I hate to bring up any negatives to the guy who basically became a Houston Hero overnight because I myself really like the guy and enjoy watching him play but don't get caught up in the moment and forget everything Schaub brings to the table either.
