Re: Football Outsiders: State of the Texans
The eye ball test:
Schaub has improved his footwork as I wanted him to; that is not to say he's ever pretty.
The ball fake off the play action is probably among the best.
His roll-out will never be great since he's not mobile.
He has gotten rid of the long-winded throwing motion.
He does not hold on to the ball too long anymore, and therefore taking fewer sacks.
His TD/INT has been better as compared to the first 4 years of his career.
His air yard per attempt over the last 4 years ranks somewhere between top 5 to top 10.
He's not horrendous in the red zone (14 TDs vs 1 INT).
Again, Schaub is not great; he's not even "very good", but he's quite good, all I'm saying. Still somewhere between top 10-15 for me.
