Sometimes different is good; sometimes its change for change sake.
Note: Statistics appear here in liberal quantities due to the fact that every time someone points out that Schaub is a problem someone leaps out with a statistic they claim proves otherwise. Well, here's how Schaub stacks up to Rivers....statistically.
And actually MEGA SWATT, Schaub looks a lot more like Romo statistically than Rivers does.
I'd love it if the Chargers fans hated their guy enough to trade him for Schaub. A lot of this Rivers criticism is blowing smoke. I'd take that guy in a heartbeat over the gimp. He's a great deal more mobile than Schaub, he's got a lot more arm too. His TD/INT is 189/81 vs Schaub's 120/70 over the same period of time and he sat for two years to Schaub's three. 3 times Rivers has finished with a QB rating over 100, Schaub has never done it and never will.
Rivers has done his business while being sacked 219 times. Schaub who we all pity so much because of the abuse he takes behind our terrible line has been sacked 151 times.
Frankly there's no comparison. One guy attacks the other team and practically bleeds desire to win while the other slogs through the plays he's given like he's calf-deep in mud.
It will never happen but all these posts ragging on Rivers are ridiculous. Rivers will get out of Norv Turner Hell and be back on top long before Matt Schaub ever figures out how to hit a WR in stride.
