Re: All Encompassing Matt Schaub Thread
I think this Matt Schaub situation is a great example of what you can do with stats and why you have to think outside the stat box when evaluating players. For years folks have made a case that Schaub was a hell of a QB because of his stat line. Sure the offense looks good on paper when you dink and dunk between the 20's like David Carr used to do. Lot's of first downs, lots of yardage...but that's because teams keep you in front of them since you can't stretch the field. Huge yardage totals for Schaub, Johnson and Foster but 3 FG's and a TD won't win most games. Carr checking down to Dom Davis when AJ wasn't open didn't do much for this team either...but the Carr fans all raved about how his qb rating, completion percentage and yardage totals were awesome. You gotta look past the stat line and read between the lines a little more to determine what's what out there.
