So that dilutes the accomplishment even further!
In 2009, Schaub threw for 4770 yards.

Since then, with the changes in the rules, that's down to 14th. But at the time, only Dan Marino, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady and Dan Fouts had thrown for more. That's good company to be in.

He's not a bad QB. Not great, but good enough to get the job done.
