Re: The Myth of the Long Ball & Matt Schaub
Great post I-cak but u know folks here don't see the whole picture......largely b/c they don't want to. I watch every team play at least 1 game every year...and that's being conservative....every qb in the league has at 4-6 passes a game where his WR's makes him look good by catching passes that aren't quite where they should be.
Go back and look at Flacco's TD pass to a wide open Jacoby Jones behind the defense in the SB. Easy pitch and catch right? look how much Jacoby had to slow down to make that catch...if that's Schaub who makes that throw, people here are losing their minds..It was only a TD b/c Jones had the presence of mind to get back up after he fell catching the severely underthrown ball and make a few moves. The stat officially goes to both, however Jones is the guy who primarily made that happen, not Flacco.
