Their age is highly irrelevant to the situation. The drop off from starting qb to second is huge and the step from 2nd rb to the 3rd isn't nearly as much. Take that into account when you are talking about turnover allowance and the factor in the increased number of touches qb to rb.
Does Schaub's int outweigh Tate's fumble? Sure. Does one excuse the other? Not a chance
