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.
After the 2011 season I put Schaub just outside the top echelon of QBs in this league. I believe that may be the high water mark of his career. I always knew he wasn't the type of guy to will a team to a victory, and you had to have a good team around him to get the job done. I've given Schaub his praise and stuck up for him at times but I can no longer do that.
