I'm kind of in the same boat. I didn't know a whole lot about Shammy, but I remember going out to those first few open practices.
I was impressed with what I saw.
I don't think I ever overrated him, but I was initially happy with him as a starter but a lot of that had to do with the fact that we were fresh off David Carr. Hell, we were clamoring for Sage to start at the time.
But regarding Schaub, I gave gave him the benefit of the doubt through the first few season...injuries..bad players around him...
But the faults of his were still evident.
Now, I see him as a guy that would make a really good back up QB. But he's not being paid like that, so I just think we are in a tough spot.
