Maybe the bigger issue isn't Schaub not being elite, but why can't our defense stop elite QBs?!?
The black bolded is your answer Ladies and Gents (Repped, by the way...)
Remember the last time Brady made it to the Super Bowl and Plaxico said the final score would be 23-17 Giants. And Brady all but laughed out loud at the thought that his offense could be held to just 17 points..? Well the final score was 17-14 Giants. Just one additional example of a quality defense shutting down a so-called, "elite QB" and a high powered offense (weren't the Pats the highest scoring team in league history that year?? AND undefeated??).
You guys can wish for an "Elite QB" all you want; give me
another J.J.Watt and a Patrick Willis or NaVarro Bowman clone in the middle to go with a healthy Cushing. ...maybe throw in a quicker, stronger NT to rotate with Earl Mitchell too... And I'll take my chances against the "elite QBs"
