I don`t want to defend or attack Schaub but - who could we have gotten along the way that is better? Suck again for a 1st round QB like Gabbert? Sign a FA like Matt Flynn? Trade for a proven veteran like Carson Palmer?
It is hard to get a franchise QB - Schaub is better than most other QBs in the league, he just is no where close to being elite. But he is the best we got and the best we could`ve possibly gotten (with the off chance of landing Manning and be in salary cap hell or the luck of getting a mid round QB gem like Wilson).
So do you really want to blow our team up to get the chance to draft a franchise QB? Or should we just say: well if Flacco got a super bowl ring, maybe Schaub can too. We have a great defense, great 2 HBs, great 2 WRs, great TEs and an okish O-Line - a QB like Schaub is enough to compete. Only time will tell, if it is enough to win it all.
