Carson Palmer was traded to the Raiders to be their starter. After disappointing the Raiders for a year, he was signed to start for the Cardinals.

There are only a handful of good QBs in the league. Even with the deep QB draft coming up, someone will want a guy like Schaub to "mentor" their rookie & hedge their bets.

IMO, you've got to stick with him as long as you'd have stuck with Yates/Keenum. You don't want your QB playing with the thought that the next INT will send him to the bench & you can't always "blame" the QB if an INT is returned for a touchdown.

Also, I think it needs to be downplayed as much as possible if you expect your QB to "get over it" As long as an INT is made out to be a huge mistake, it will always be on your QBs mind. You don't want your QB to be careless with the ball (to be honest only one of Schaub's INTs was on a careless throw), but you do not want him playing scared.

We've got to win despite the INT. Just like a struggling pitcher needs to have faith that his team will "have his back" if he gives up a hit, by fielding the ball, getting outs, & scoring runs; Schaub, Tj, or Case need to know his team will get stops if they make a mistake. Give up a field goal... that's fine. But I believe we've given up a TD on every INT Schaub's thrown, not just the pick 6es & that's got to change regardless who the QB is.

& this is part of the reason I started the "We don't look like the Broncos thread."

It's been two years since we've seen a QB capable of winning a Super Bowl in Houston.

It's been two years since Arian has played at a level capable of winning a Super Bowl.

It's been two years since our OL played well enough to win a Super Bowl.

It's been two years since our defense played well enough to win a Super Bowl.

Only Andre, Cushing, Jj, & Kjax are playing at that level or better than they did in 2011. That's got to change if we're seriously going to make a run at the Super Bowl.

The Broncos offense is the only unit that has played 60 minutes a game... nobody else. Nobody. If any team ever played like an elite team for 60 minutes the score would be at least 28-0 if you're thinking a TD per qtr, or 40-0 if "showing-up" equals 10 points per quarter.
