I didn't bring those guys up. I was responding to someone who compared Schaub to those guys.
Schaub through for 4770 yards BEFORE all these guys you're talking about started throwing for over 5000. At the time he did that, it was the 6th most yards in a season EVER.
With the rules changes, that's dropped to 14th.
NOW Schaub isn't being asked to put up those kinds of numbers week-in and week-out anymore. He's being asked to rely on his run game.
