Before you bother to look it up, Brady came in and had a significantly higher rating than Bledsoe's.
Well that post was certainly full of it.
How many teams lose their first and second team qb and go on to clinch the division anyways? How many teams continue to win with injuries to such key players?
This isn't a situation that teams typically find themselves in.
Also, schaub as a fourth year player and his first year here he had an 87 passer rating. He has gotten better since then. No reason Yates as a rookie wouldn't progress.
He has two full games under his belt and four weeks ago wasn't getting many reps in practice. I think it's a little early to look at his qb rating.
Statistically Yates doesn't have to be better than schaub right away. If he shows great potential and is a key factor in us winning games it's going to be a tough decision come spring.
