This is not about who we think is better, but rather who we think would want to get rid of their current QB in favor of Schaub
(based upon your statement: "I guarantee you if we released him today at least 2/3 of the league would consider him an upgrade over their QB."
is where I got this list (updated week 17).
for teams that I think would not want Schaub.

I have 10 teams on my list that I feel would immediately pick up Schaub and "consider him an upgrade over their QB".
Your mileage may vary. I look forward to your reply.
p.s. Keep in mind this is not a debate of "who is better". For instance, the Cowboys are not getting rid of Romo, regardless if Schaub is available. So please keep that in mind.
This is a more interesting take, I guess. Would certain teams go with their young QB or would they take the veteran that has been known to play at a high (not elite) level? I know right now that I would not take Tannehill, Freeman, Ponder, Locker, etc. to QB the Texans over Schaub next year. The interesting question is would teams take their young, promising QB over Schaub?
