All bets are off if they end up 2-5 or 3-6 with Schaub being the reason the team struggles.

When we do make a change at QB ... do we expect the same results as Luck & RG3 as rookies ? I think that's unrealistic ....
With many parts of the team aging , we could have to wait a couple years for another playoff experience as Manning , Reed , Ninja , Wade Smith , AJ and J.Jo are all at the back end of their careers .....

As it stands now , we're stuck with Schaub until its proven this isn't a playoff team.
How has that idea worked out for the Texans? How did that idea work out for the 49'ers last season?

I simply don't think Schaub has what it takes to get us anywhere near deep in the playoffs. His performances this year are so erratic that we might as well have a 3rd year QB with some athletic upside and real game experience a decent shot.
