Well not only does he have a high completion percentage, but he also has a high yards per attempt. So he's not exactly dinking & dunking all the time.
And all of the great QBs had great receivers (except for Brady alot of years). Montana & Young had great receivers. Peyton always had some of the leagues best receivers. Brees has Colston, Graham & Sproles to bail him out. Rodgers had arguably the best receiving core the past few years.
I'm also getting tired of people saying Schaub is a product of the 'system'. If we are a perennial top 10 offense (in both yards and scoring), despite the play of our "crappy" QB, Kubiak deserves more credit as an offensive mastermind.
