Tampa Bay JUST benched their starter for a rookie.
While I get your point that it's very rare, it has happened.
There are probably other examples.
I am sure there are more but like you say very rare. Even for the ones you pulled neither was near as successful as Schaub has been and perhaps more importantly, both were benched by coaches other than the ones who drafted them.
