Pretty sure things were not perfect in the San Diego game this year either, nor were they in the Seahawks game, yet he still was carving the so called number one D to pieces in the first half, but I know, it was just the Seahawks playing poorly, not Schaub playing well, right?
You guys just keep taking your shots at Schaub, but at least have the courtesy to include some reality in there somewhere, not just Anti-Schaub propaganda.
"Schaub has all kinds of time sitting in the pocket."
Since Schaub's been here, no one has been able to honestly say that, not the way these other QBs have been able to sit in the pocket, make multiple reads, pump fake.... Not the way Sam Bradford had "all the time in the world" last Sunday.
Not even back when we had the "best line in the league" with the great Eric Winston (who got tore up against Seattle Thursday night) & Mike Briesel. He's had "enough" time, or "should" have been able to do more.... but he's played at a high level in spite of it.
He has his faults, & I believe a lot of the limitations of this offense is due to Schaub's limitations. We don't run a 2 minute drill, because of Schaub. We don't try to score at the end of a half because of Schaub. We don't play 3 & 5 wides because of Schaub. Our WRs don't rack up TDs because of Schaub.
But he's never got the credit he's deserved. Not from us.
