There was a time where consistently throwing 3000 yards a season meant you had a starter. There were several guys who could start 16 games, but not crack 3000 yards. There were other guys who would get pulled & never have the opportunity to throw for 3000 yards, because they were so bad.
Matt's been throwing for 4,000 since he's been a starter, barring injury, which I believe is still a major concern.
So, in this case, throwing for 4,000 yards says exactly that about Matt Schaub, he's a quality starter. Does that mean he can win a Super Bowl? Hell no, but don't act like garbage QBs are throwing for 4,000 yards.
& as far as rushing for 1,000 yards for a RB. It's never been a big deal. Being able to rush for 1,000 yards for multiple seasons is the hallmark of a great RB.
