Re: The Myth of the Long Ball & Matt Schaub
Relying on stats here is foolhardy. Completing a deep pass does not and never has meant a qb has a strong arm or is a great deep ball passer. This whole argument of handing out credit based on a stat line is like saying Barry Sanders must've had a great line because of the stats he put up.
Furthermore, this whole circus is focusing on attempts and completions. How bout lost yards and scores on most of his completions. Again and again receivers a mile open had to wait for the ball while defenders got back in the play. Early in the season teams were burned fairly often by play action passes to the OPPOSITE side of the field. Scheme completions. It got on tape and it stopped because Schaub does not have a strong arm and is not a good deep ball passer. He's a rhythm passer who's solid in short to intermediate passes.
Flush your rainbow.
