I like Schaub and I think we can do some really good things with him if most other things are going right.
But I don't believe that he is going to be the guy that lifts us past adversity.
This isn't about crunch time for me. It's about big games in general. I've got no faith that Schaub can right a ship once it's gone wrong. I don't think he's going to defy any odds when they're stacked against us.
If multiple things are going wrong, I don't expect Schaub to make multiple plays just off the strength of himself and then be able to close the deal in the end.
If guys are dropping passes, if he's getting some pressure, if the defense or special teams gives up a play I don't have faith that Schaub will make great plays to keep us in the game and win it in the end.
Now, that's not a huge knock on Schaub because there are a lot of QB's that can do that.
But for me, as a fan, it's about belief. With some other QB's I can at least envision them doing those things. I can picture some QB's making clutch accurate throws, fitting passes into tight spaces with defenders around them. I can picture guys making defenders miss scrambling out and hitting an open guy for a big completion in a big moment. I can see other guys having that alpha dog, killer instinct and everyone else on the field having that swagger because they have ultimate faith in their QB.
I don't see that with Schaub.
If I'm starting a team today, Schaub wouldn't be in the top 9 QB's that I'd grab. But I do think that in our system we can win a superbowl with him.
