How's he going to look at the end of the season after some hits and also when the games actually matter a lot more?
It was a mistake. A miscalculation. There would not be a market for Schaub right now, after what he showed in 2012, combined with his injury history. They could have still re-signed Shaub for less $$$ and fewer years. If Schaub cannot come back to pre-injury form, it will haunt this franchise for the next 2-3 years.
