Schaub's tenure in Houston has been marked by rampant criticism. Wherever he may rank in the pantheon of NFL quarterbacks, consider this:
In their first five seasons, the Texans were 24-56 (.300) with five losing seasons. In the six seasons since Schaub arrived in 2007, the Texans are 53-43 (.552) with one losing season and two AFC South titles.
Schaub ranks seventh in NFL history in completion percentage (64.3)
, ahead of Tom Brady and Joe Montana. He ranks 11th all time in passer rating
(91.9) and 12th in passing yards per attempt
Since 2007, he's ninth in the NFL in passer rating (93.3)
, ahead of Matt Ryan (90.9), Michael Vick (87.8), Eli Manning (86.5) and Joe Flacco (86.3).
And Schaub's 261.4 passing yards per game since joining the Texans would rank third in NFL history
behind only Drew Brees (270.1) and Peyton Manning (265.6). Elite? Maybe not, but certainly better than he gets credit for.
Pendergast is just another biased Schaub hater who only looks at his flaws and never gives him credit for his strengths, or wins. Schaub bashing has become a sport, and each are trying to outdo the last.
I really wish people would stop quoting completion % as a good stat for Matt. It's not like Matt is throwing laser bombs, he's a QB in a run first play action that has a great RB, TE, and WR. He's in the perfect system, lots of swings, screens, and bad passes that he's getting bailed out by his receivers.
