For Yates the subset of data is small but not so for Matt. Matt's data would suggest that his poor performance at this point is abnormal.
You nailed the answer.. was no need to try and outdo yourself..
Past that, I saw stats, incorrect stats at that. From which didn't address the question of what has Matt done?
This is not a comparison of TJ to Schaub Per se, but since you brought it up.. TJ actually has 5 games started(not 7), to which his numbers are very similar to Schaub's last 5 games. I think you'll find one wins by a nose. Disturbing when comparing a rookie's stats to a 10 year veteran.

And, by the way, Matt's 5 game data still remains on par with 7 games prior to that. This isn't a recent epiphany that Schaub is no longer his pre 2011 self.

Rings aren't stats.. they are trophies, indicative of greatness. The comparison wasn't to illustrate who's the better bad player right now, but as you well understand it was to lay credence as to why Eli's accomplishments warrant a longer leash so to speak, which tie into accountability. One HAS to account for Eli's trip to disney world. What do we have to accont for Matt? That he once was a top 10 QB in many statistics back in 2011? Great! Let's jump in the ol' time machine and grab that guy! To suggest he's amongst us now is a real stretch. All thing considered, from an accountability stand point, I can only conclude that Yates and Keenum must be REAALY horrible, as the only real tangible truth we've got is right now, if Schaub remains the best option under center, it's going to be a looooong season.
