There's more to the story than it being just schaub who isn't playing well.
Our fan base is filled with irrational fans that change their views every week. Just a few weeks ago Schaub was thought of as a great player to have on this team and people said this team was SB bound. Two losses later, Schaub is thought of as a back up despite the fact that any smart football fan couldn't name 5 QB's in the AFC that have been better then Schaub over the last few years. It doesn't matter that the O line has been atrocious in certain games and it doesn't matter that the running game hasn't done anything. It's all on Schaub, but that's how our fan base views things. Schaub isn't mobile, so everything gets blamed on him. The bottom line is that these fans that go nuts because Schaub isn't mobile weren't saying jack about this several years ago and many acted like he was a great QB. But anyone who constantly complains about Schaub not being mobile now is pretty stinking late to complain about it.
Where was the complaining about that in season two with Schaub? He didn't become non mobile over night. He has always been that way, and if he doesn't get protection he has always been ineffective. The people that see that as a problem now sound silly, because this has been an issue for years, and yet Schaub wasn't a problem then. But for some reason now Schaub is this awful QB because he isn't mobile when the Texans are 12-3. If you go back to last season before Schaub got hurt his record as a starter would have been like 18-3 or something like that. But yeah, he's a back up. Lol! So if that is the case, you'd think we could just plug anyone in here as a starter since our team is so great that we can just start a back up like Schaub and have such a good record. Funny though, because right now I see a problem with our run blocking, our pass blocking, and our WR's ability to make plays other then AJ But the only problem that these irrational fans see is Schaub. Lol!
