Third and longs get a lot harder...redozone offense isn't the same...you don't feel as good about how the offense will do in crunch time...

The reason people want a guy like romo over schaub is because he can make plays schaub can't. Thats it.

Decision making and all that stuff is somewhat coachable. Being mobile, having a better arm, evading defenders in the pocket, consistently being able to zip passes...you can do it or you can't...and Matt schaub can't. He never will be able to. This is his ceiling.

I think people want to see what kubiak and this offense could do with a guy with those skills. Last year we saw a glimpse of it with a fifth round rookie. And despite what everyone says, he did ok for himself.

The question is not who is better than schaub, it's who can we find with Yates like tools, but a better player.

I think if you take a guy like romo or cutler in this offense they'd do better than schaub. They have better tools. Their decisions might be more risky, but it's a trade off and you hope/think that the overall results would be better.


If you put all the qb's in the NFL in a draft and you are picking, schaub is not going in the top 15. Depending on who is picking, maybe not top 20... He'd be a starter for someone, but I almost guarantee they'd be looking for a young back up with better tools to groom.
GREAT POST REY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
