i dont believe he'll ever be the same player because of his foot condition and the mental beating he took over the last couple of years. he'll help the raiders though, and hopefully prove himself at least worthy as a starter again. he didnt belong here any more, but he belongs in the NFL. good luck matt schaub.
This sums it all up. Great post.
I'd be thrilled to see Schaub thrive with the Raiders. I'll be watching on opening weekend.
