Re: The Myth of the Long Ball & Matt Schaub
the problem is almost all of schaubs deep throws are off of play action and augmented with threatening running game.
THOSE ARE IDEAL LONG PASSING PLAYS AND YET SCHAUB STILL HAS TROUBLE MAKING THEM.
Some of those guys on those list they dont always work off of play action because of their respective system. Schaub will only throw the long ball if its the play his twin brother gary calls. Conservative gary will only choose long passing plays if its ideal and needed. Those other guys, their degree of difficulty is much greater than schaub. Throwing the deep ball is just one of many problems with matt schaub.
In the analytics era, you can pull out any statistic and make any point you want seem truthful.
Nice moral victory thread and this proves once again how delusional houstonians are with their quarterback.
This is why we got stuck with david carr for so long. Houstonians and the front office were gutless and refused to see what they had in front of them. They kept on making rationalizations instead of making an honest analytical decision and move on from the situation.
Its happening again with schaub.
You people deserve matt schaub and gary kubiak.
