So did Carr in the 2005 season. In fact, he set the record for completions in a row that year. From the PFF piece:

Quote:
The Texans’ quarterback looked tentative at best and was rarely prepared to challenge the Bengals’ secondary with anything meaningful. Only three times did he throw the ball over 10 yards in the air, and never did he go deep (over 20 yards). Instead, he largely relied on his receivers, backs and tight ends to do most of the work, with 49.6% of his yards coming after the catch.
Now, to be clear, I am not comparing Schaub to Carr at all. But let's not start bending over backwards to try and make the guy look better than he really is. Right NOW, the guy is just not a good QB. He may not be awful, but he was kept a helluva lot cleaner than most games and he just checked down all day.

Stop entrenching yourself in defending Schaub and just recognize the reality of it.
