Doesn't mean he'll do it every time, but we know he can.
I don't know that Schaub can do that. Not for multiple games in a row down the stretch, into the play-offs and in the Superbowl.
And back to my original point about system...There's really 0 excuse for why he shouldn't be able to play well when it gets tough late in the year other than his own limitations or injuries. We know that this system works.
With Flacco, we don't know that his old system worked for him. We do know that his new system did.
Really there's no comparing the two at this point. Flacco has played well in a stretch of big games. Schaub hasn't. That's really the end of it right there.
Until Schaub can play well in tough games down the stretch then you can't put him on Flacco's level...IMO...
Flacco wasn't exactly lighting it up in tough games down the stretch until the last 2 years...i seem to recall lots of those Pittsburgh games his play was putrid to downright awful...He needed alot of seasoning to get to the point he got to last year......and even then it still threatened to not be enough.
Schaub and the Texans team as a whole just got to the point Flacco was drafted into and has been at his entire career lets at least give him a real opportunity.
