In Schaub's case the answer is a resounding 'NO'. He is a weak link on the offense that has to be compensated for by great players that bail him out. Good NFL QB's have the reverse effect. They make plays off-schedule, improvise and instill confidence into the offensive unit. Schaub accomplishes none of the above and counts on his teammates to make him look adequate.
In games Andre Johnson misses, the Texans passing game still holds up relatively well, compared to other type flight wrs missing games.
- Schaub keeps the team going. He still makes due with what he has and isnt as reliant on star talent as it seems.
- Its all Kubiak's system. System coach with system QB who isnt given room to "improvise
Or A little of both. Schaub may or may not be decent on his own, but whats it matter if his improvising is reigned in and his defiences are masked? Schaub doesnt have Peyton Manninv pull to deviate into his own play style so itll always be kinda difficult to see the "raw Schaub" ability
