The other thing too is that other qb's have these same WTF throws too. Watching Flacco and Manning the other day, Both had a number of passes that were high, thrown off target or hang-u-out-to-dry passes..the same type of passes that Schaub gets critcized for. The difference is is that their WR's were making plays on the ball and Schaub's more often than not don't.
Imagine Kevin Walter trying to make the play that Smith made on his 2nd TD reception right before the half....It's not happening. That play more than likely turns into an int by champ bailey b/c he was in perfect position.
Don't you understand that someone is always going to drop the perfect pass you throw to them? That's going to happen in every game they play once or twice (even more than that sometimes). It's some of that "adversity" they keep talking about. Someone's going to hold on your TD pass, someone is going to fall down and make you throw a pass to a patch of grass or a pick to the other team. **** happens and when it does Matt doesn't roll with the punches and settle down right away. He comes back around in a few plays but it only takes one or two losses of composure like that in a drive to turn a TD in to a FG or the entire drive into a punt.
Sure those other guys throw crappy passes too. They all do. We've watched Schaub enough to know the pattern. When things go wrong he puts it in the ditch for a series before pulling it together. A lot.
The criticism of the WR's is warranted and valid. The problem here isn't just Schaub and it isn't just Kubiak. It's "Schaubiak". One of them has a death grip on the controls (Gary) and is the guy responsible for the state of our receiving "weapons". He's been here 7 years and the players we see on the field are the guys he wants. The other (Matt) is an athletic dinosaur. He's Dan Marino with far less physical ability and a lower football IQ.
