If you watched the offense the last 6 games of the season and still think... Schaub is a top 9 QB, then we will have to agree to disagree.
From another thread.

(6)Phillip Rivers &(7) Peyton Manning have done it in 4 of the last 5 years. (8)Drew Brees has done it for the last 5 years, he led the league in Passing 3 times in the last 5 years.
Shaub led one year, Rivers led the other.
Both (9)Matt Ryan & (10)Matthew Stafford have thrown for 4000 yards in each of the last two seasons.
Passer rating (NFL.com's passer rating) QBs with a 92 or better (250 attempts) in the last 5 years,
(4)Rodgers 5 of 5 He's a machine
(3)Schaub 4 of the last 5 years 2012 he had a passer rating of 90
(8)Brees 4 of the last 5 90.9 in 2010
(5)Brady 4 of 5 2008 83.7 on 11 att
(7)Manning 3 of 5 91.9 in 2010 & he missed the entire 2011 season.
(9)Ryan 2 of 5 Last 2 years
(11)Kaepernick 1 of 5 Only 218 att
(12)Smith 1 of 5 Only 218 att
(13)Wilson 1 of 5
(14)RG3 1 of 5
That's pretty good company once you get past all the haterade.
He definitely belongs in the top 10 conversation. In the last 5 years, only 5 guys have thrown for 4,000 yards in 3 or more seasons & had a QB rating over 92 (with more than 250 atts) in 3 or more years. I think the conversation should start there & round it out with favorites for other reasons.
It's not about potential, what you think they are going to do next year, or an over reaction to a small sample size (6 games). These guys have played the game at a high level for a long time.
Matt Ryan appears to be an up & comer as he's been on both list over the last two seasons.
