They aren't mobile, and I've seen both of them play like crap when their Oline doesn't protect them over the years. The difference is that they get better protection more often then not, and of course they're better, but non mobile QB's have been successful in this league for decades, so stop with this bull**** about how we have to have a mobile QB or we have no chance. Where was all of this stuff about Schaub in week 9? Week 10? Why aren't you flying off the handle and blasting Matt Ryan?? He isn't really mobile either, but yet his team has the best record in the league now. It hasn't taken a mobile QB for them to be successful and it hasn't for the Texans this year either. But if you don't protect a non mobile QB who isn't athletic, then most likely your offense will struggle.
And another question. Do you have any idea at how our offense works?? Our offense comes and goes with the running game? If it isn't successful, our play action doesn't work so well either. Have you not seen the numbers of our running game over the last few weeks?? Why the hell aren't you complaining about our Olineman?? If they don't do their jobs to open holes iin the running game our passing game becomes a lot more predictable. That is Kubiak's offense. It is limited if our running game isn't effective, because Kubiak loves the play action and the bootlegs. It all starts up front not only for Schaub's effectiveness, but for Foster's effectiveness as well. Do yo want Foster out of here now as well since he isn't killing teams every week now? Should we can Foster?? You have to understand our offense and how it works before you can identify the issues with it, and from all of your posts I'm having a hard time feeling like you understand the structure and the design of what makes this offense successful.
While Brady and Manning aren't Vick, Brady moves around and usually runs 3-5 times a game to pick up crucial 1st downs. Do you remember the run against the Texans for example. Manning while not a runner, he reads defenses quckly, moves around in the pocket well and has as fast of a release as anybody.
Schaub, (I was a Schaub guy) is like a sitting duck, I think the injury to his foot has changed Garys playcalling too. In 2008-2010, what do you think would've been the odds that Gary would've called atleast one QB sneak on 1st and 10 from the 1 yd line?
The OL has been terrible the past month and the right side of the OL has been bad all yr. Also Gary has failed to give Schaub the weapons he neds to take this offense to another level. Hopefully they draft a WR like Patterson, and draft another OT like Long or Winters in the 2nd rd.
Because Schaub needs all of the help he can get due to his foot injury and Schaub is going to be the Texans QB for the next 3 yrs. Just like Gary will be the Texans HC for that long, if not longer. We as Texans fans need to accept this and hope that sometime in the near future Rick/Gary will draft a franchise QB like when Rodgers was drafted while Favre was still playing.
Right now Schaub reminds me Marino at the end of his career, without Marinos arm. They dont have the mobility to even avoid the rush, much less run a true WC offense effectively.
