To me the only way to upgrade is by drafting someone. IF YATES is not the guy like many seem to think (not me, I like Yates) then you have to get a qb higher in the draft.
The problem with trying to replace Schaub is getting a guy who is better. Getting a guy who is worse makes no sense. I don't see Alex Smith as an improvement. What other free agent QBs may be available? Matt Moore? Jason Campbell. Neither of these guys screams improvement to me.
This is a poor year to draft a franchise QB. None of the 2013 QBs look like franchise signal callers. 2014 looks like a better year to grab a QB high. So, i imagine the team is stuck with Schaub for another year, whether they like it or not.
