Yes. Miles Austin wouldn't see the field in Atlanta. He's not going to take snaps or targets away from Julio Jones & Roddy White.
I also think there were reasons Schaub threw short passes instead of deep passes. Most likely because no one down field was open, or he didn't have the time to wait for it to develop.
I honestly believe the line will play better in 2013, & our young wide receivers will play better as well. Matt Schaub is going to look like the guy many here thought was elite. We're going to win the division again, we're going to the play offs again, probably get a first round bye, & we'll win at least one play off game again.
& I'm not saying this because I'm a Schaub fan. I'm not. But Matt Schaub has been pretty consistent, for better or worse, throughout his career. Many here can look at Schaub & know for a fact that he will not advance this club very far in the play offs. I look at him & I know for a fact he will get us into the play offs and anything can happen from there.
