i get that matt is no rg3, but there are things that a qb can do to help an offensive line.
its called being cagey in the pocket.
-get rid of the ball quicker
-throw the ball away
-step up in the pocket
-hit your check downs faster
Things that drew brees and another statue, tom brady excel at unlike schaub.
I was watching the nfl network and the playbook guys were breaking down schaub's play and it showed schaub not being able to pull the trigger with guys wide open and with him having protection.
you're the one that's being blind or being obtuse if you cant see schaub is at fault for a lot of those sacks.
I thought Schaub looked great the first 9 or 10 games of this season. However, there is no doubt he has played poorly the past few weeks and has been late on a number of balls.
That being said, Schaub at his best (which is very good), will always need more time to throw than Brady and Manning- his delivery and stride are somewhat longer... That doesn't mean he can't play at an elite level with reasonable talent around him... But, he's not doing it now and only partly due to the offensive line performance.
