So, he gets all this after not having won a game before coming to Houston, and people here don't think Case deserves to start the rest of the year? What am I missing?
You have to go back in time a little bit. Schaub was a 3rd round draft choice but ONLY because he hurt his shoulder his senior year and teams weren't sure how he would recover from that.
Early on, there were a lot of people in Atlanta calling for Schaub to start over Vick. Schaub was a hot-topic around the league. A lot of teams were interested in him and wanted to trade for him.
He was a high value guy at the time even though there were a lot of nay-sayers in the fanbase who branded him purely a back-up QB.
Now on the other topic... I don't see how anyone could watch Case play in this offense and not be excited about the possibilities and not be overjoyed with his development.
I just don't get it. And as a UH alum, I've tried to be extremely objective about Case because I know I've got some bias there.
