Re: The Myth of the Long Ball & Matt Schaub
Where is the stats for how often schaub throws the deep ball off of the bootleg play action where he's throwing into one on one coverage or sometimes to a guy that's wide the hell open?
Schaub is regular. This offense lends itself to generating numbers. He's not doing what big Ben or Brady do. They might do play action at times, but their play action is not nearly the same..their offenses are different.
If those guys were in this offense our team would be deadly.
But instead we are stuck with a qb that's good enough to connect the dots, but can't paint a picture from scratch on an empty canvass.
If you think schaub is good at the longball you're incorrect. Put him in a different offense where he's constantly dealing with safeties over the top instead of this offense where the play design gets receivers in extremely favorable match ups and he's not near this borderline star qb that people believe he is.
Not saying we can't win with schaub, but he's not putting the team on his back and bombing us to wins due to his long ball prowess. Yeah right.
