I think there is allot of truth behind that theory. He looked like a pitcher with a dead arm, with no velocity, which if anybody understand mechanics of throwing, a pitcher and QB have very similar mechanics.
Schaub's balls in the beginning of the year had a little zip on them, and at the end the tended to float...
