Default Re: All Encompassing Matt Schaub Thread

For those of you saying we can win with Matt, we just need to give him a LOT of help...you may be right. But the sickening thing is we are paying him ~62 million over 4 years (roughly 15.5 million / season).

Yes, the Ravens won it all with Trent Dilfer. yes, the Seahawks got there with Matt Hasselbeck. But those players were paid peanuts compared to Schaub (I think Dilfer was only a couple million a year, Hasselbeck like 5ish)
Brad Johnson? Same story.

The fact of the matter is we overpaid Schaub (and subsequently couldn't afford to keep the right side of our line, which hurt our running game significantly).

Can we win a super bowl with Matt Schaub? Yes. Can we win one with him taking up such a big portion of our salary cap? I don't think so. TJ Yates made ~500,000 this season. Do you really think that Matt Schaub is $15 million/season better than TJ Yates?

You can't overpay players consistently and win.
