It was a mixed bag.
Some of us were excited because there was a lot of buzz around the league about Schaub. He was considered the best QB in the league who wasn't starting. There were a lot of people in Atlanta who wanted him to start instead of Vick.
And then there were a bunch of people who were skeptical because the guy was a career backup and a 3rd round draft choice. And the question was whether he was worth 2 2nd round draft picks.
There was also a contingent that wanted Sage Rosenfels to get the job. And then a few who wanted us to draft a QB... not that there were any great QBs in that draft: Quinn or Kolb.
