Rodgers (no debate)

Andrew Luck - already better
Russell Wilson - arguably already better
RGIII - " "
Kaepernick - I think he's better
Romo - hate him, but he makes throws Schaub could only dream of.
Jay Cutler - certainly better physically. Had a horrible system, may be a douche, but I'd take him over Schaub.
Rivers - bad year this yr, but has had a better career than Schaub
Freeman - much more potential than Schaub.
That's 15 that I would definitely rather have on my team than Schaub. Maybe you can argue one or two of those, but Schaub is at best Mediocre.
We're pretty much saying the same thing. Mediocre is average. Just because there are 15 good to plus QB's in the NFL doesn't mean that Schaub is an awful QB.....I just call him above average as in he's really not all that.
