Schaub has never been that accurate. How many times have we seen schaub leave points on the field because he didn't lead the wrs? How many times have andre had to pluck a ball off the shoelaces. I think one of the reasons they drafted hopkins is because he can catch bad passes. I never thought of him as a 1 ish wr because he's not that explosive.He's the kind of wr you have to throw open or put it in his area and he will get it no matter how poorly its thrown. On the other hand,dbs don't worry about him running by them. Actually the same can be said for just about every wr and te on the texans.
