QB's make plays behind questionable lines all over the league. The good ones make those hungry defenses pay. Schaub almost never does these days.
He chokes and that's not an opinion. It's a fact. His entire history as a starter is littered with one choke after another in big games. Time to find another QB and time for Matt to go backup somebody.
And Scourge is right, it's time to draft linemen because Schaub is not going to have us drafting in the high 20's in 2013 and 2014. Get the linemen now and start hunting for the QB after that. We'll be drafting high enough to get a good one.
5 seconds? Exaggerate much? Yeah, thought not.
