Clearly there are factors which can affect the stats like low or very high attempts, receivers and their efforts to get to balls, etc. Still, Schaub has so far been living with very good neighbors and the assertions of Sage's superior accuracy appear erroneous.
This was the most surprising aspect of Schaub's 2007 season to me. The knock on him at Virginia was that he was not a deep-ball guy (one local rag called him "The Duke of Dink"). Of course, he had no reliable deep threats during his time at UVA, so the Hoos had no choice but to go with the short-passing game that leaned heavily on RBs and TEs.
And I echo everyone else's sentiment--this season can't start soon enough.
