Perhaps more importantly; does Schaub have the stones to pull the trigger in that situation?
Question 1: Yeah, he can. And Dre didn't have to wait on the ball it caught him in stride: http://www.youtube.com/watch?hl=en&g..._hY&nomobile=1
Question 2: Any NFL QB can throw a Hail Mary and pray a WR comes down w/ the ball.
All that being said, Flacco is still better than Schaub, but not by much. Flacco definitely has had a better team than Schaub too which is a little unfair also.
Final point on Flacco vs. Schaub. I do think Flacco is better, but before we start calling him "clutch" let's flash back on his "clutch" moments vs. Schaub:
4th and 29 against the Chargers. They don't convert this 4th and 29
They lose this game, they don't win division and their playoff schedule changes and likely everything changes. Great "clutch" dump off:
Flacco to Jacoby again, just listen to the NFL guys saying how disgusting the Denver secondary was. That pass had little to do with Flacco and Jacoby's success and more to do with Denver's ineptitude in my opinion.:
My point is "clutch" and luck look very similar to me.
Schaub playoffs vs. Patriots (41) - 28 points - Loser, not clutch, choke artist
Flacco playoffs vs. Patriots (13) - 28 points - Clutch, gamer, elite
