You said no football person other than Kubiak think Schaub is better than Flacco, he replied that more pro bowl voters (players & coaches; ie football people) believe Schaub is the better QB.
So you obviously have a very high regard for the Pro-bowl process huh? Can I make that assumption...you know since you like to make assumptions yourself? Lets just go ahead and say you do. That you believe the pro-bowl is the end all for how coaches and GMs view a players worth because that is what you are seemingly defending.
Yet how many GMs/coaches would take Jeff Saturday, voted into the pro-bowl this year(largely by fair weather fans), when he got benched for his horrible play by his own coach in November. But I guess using your logic, that makes him better than Nick Mangold, who didn't make the pro-bowl...yeah 32 teams would rather have Saturday over Mangold...you know, because of the pro-bowl and all...
Another example, Gore made the pro-bowl for the NFC, while Alfred Morris didn't, who has far better stats than Gore. But yeah, if given a choice, coaches/GMs will take Gore, who is on the wrong side of 30 and clearly losing a step, over a young stud Alfred Morris.
Furthermore,A quick google search of "undeserving pro-bowler" in 2013 will yield many lists that include Schaub. Pro-bowl snub articles are also to found everywhere....So again, the pro-bowl can be a real joke. In the NFC alone, there are 6, count'em 6 Pro-bowl QBs that get the "honor", lol...
Its all about context my friend...and there is no way a competent GM/Coach will choose Schaub over Flacco, no way in hell.
