Not to mention Schaub's name should never be mentioned in the same breath as Dan Marino.

You are trying to put Schaub up on this pedestal like he's accomplished so much in this league and shouldn't be in the position to be pushed and that take is flat out ridiculous. He put up good stats for a few years, couldn't stay healthy other years, and is clearly CLEARLY NOT THE SAME QB that he was just a couple of seasons ago. Anybody who can plug in a tape from '09 can see that.

He's been starting here for 7 seasons... one playoff win vs. the Bengals and now when he throws a football it looks like it's boomerang, because lately it's been coming right back towards him..Yeah it's ridiculous to think that Schaub should be pushed for his job and possibly put on the bench. Schaub hasn't accomplished nearly enough of what you Apparently think he has, where he can keep making these mistakes and not be held accountable.

P.S.

I'm so glad you brought up Trent Dilfer, because that's now where I put this current Matt Schaub.. in the Trent Dilfer and Rob Johnson class, except he's making mistakes. He's now in the "game manager" class of QBs, but he keeps making costly mistakes.

I used to stick up with Schaub and even didn't mind the weak arm, because he was at least accurate with the football and had decent ball placement, that's no longer the case. You can't have a weak arm and also be inaccurate. Now when Schaub throws the ball you don't know where the hell it's going to go.. over the receiver, behind the receiver. His receivers have to make acrobatic catches on balls that they should be getting YAC yards on.

Your problem is you're defending the old Matt Schaub with failing to acknowledge the player he is now and how far his skills have diminished. I don't really give a rats ass what Schaub did 2, 3, or 4 years ago.. this current Schaub is not going to lead this team anywhere and is REPLACEABLE, yes even to QBs who don't have the lengthy "resume".

Schaub has only been to the playoffs once?

So, you sort of ignore what he did in 2011 (7-1) and give credit for making those playoffs to Yates (3-4)... Umm, okay.

NFL rosters have 53 players. Believe me, Schaub played well enough to be in the playoffs in 2008, 2009, and 2010... unfortunately, the team around him wasn't good. Blaming Schaub for disappointment in 2009 or 10 is pretty silly.
