Yates is an athletic upgrade from Schaub but he doesn't have the command of the offense Schaub does and he's just not as good of a QB as Schaub is. Not yet, at least.
I know it sounds like I'm arguing both sides & I am. I don't think Schaub is
a great QB. I'm not sold that he can't
I'm arguing against some of this nonsense saying that he's worthless & I'm going to argue that he was great.
The truth is, this offense didn't do a whole lot this season without the defense getting turnovers & setting them up pretty. Miami, I know a lot of people were ready to cut Schaub until the Defense turned the tide & the offense was able to capitalize.
This offense, Schaub included got boo'd at home several times for not being able to move the ball, much less score, much less score a TD.
I think he looked "great" in the Denver game, the Detroit game, & maybe the Jacksonville game. But after that, from New England on, we really needed him to be great & he wasn't. The Vikings & Colts Defense should not have been able to stop us from scoring 30. I don't blame Schaub for that, I blame Kubiak. But truthfully, Schaub rarely looked "great" this year.
