Part of it Andre doesn't have the speed anymore to take the top off the coverage, and is not more of a possession receiver. We really didn't get a speed guy in the draft and I do like DeAndre but he's still not a burner that creates space between the deep zones and the LB's for Schaub to exploit which is his favorite target area.
My personal view is that we have seen the best of Matt, and he's going downhill, if another game or two like the previous two you have to pull him. We have Superbowl talent all around him, we just can't seem to get it done.
We may well have seen the ceiling for Schaub, but the WCOis tailor made for guys like AJ and Dhop. Rice matched up better with AJ than just about any other receiver in the league. Speed is good but running a 3.8 means jack **** if you aren't carrying the rock.
