He played all 16 games, which is huge for Schaub. He threw for 4000 yards, and made the Pro Bowl (I know it doesn't mean much to us fans, but it means enough that many players have accelerators built into their contracts tied to the Pro Bowl), we won 12 games, we won our division, we won a play off game....
According to some of you, it's time for the Bengals to draft a new QB.
Big difference. Dalton has been in league for only 2 years. He's led his team to the playoffs each year in a tough division and also made the pro bowl. 6 years younger than Schaub.
Meanwhile, Matt has been a starter with us since 2007 while being in the league since 2004. He had a great year in 2009. He was looking good in '11 but can't have the credit if you can't stay on the field. He may have won a playoff but it certainly wasn't because of him.
Bottom line, It's not impressive at all what Gary and Matt have accomplished while being together since 2007.
