Just because you say it's a lateral move doesn't mean it is. Every system you can put a guy in can emphasize strengths or hide shortcomings. Different systems can work better with different warts so to speak. Schaub's lack of mobility is something that Rivers does not suffer from to anywhere near the same degree. Schaub's questionable arm isn't an issue for Rivers. Until you put a guy in a system you don't know if that's going to be a better fit for him or not. Changing the scenery helps careers every year. It's stupid to just write off the chance that it could happen here and it's sad to think that we're so locked into the handful of things one guy does well that almost no one is willing to entertain the idea of a change to try and better the situation.
