One thing to add to your 8-8 horribles is that not only did they have the injuries, and the bad turnover ratio, but they had the 30th ranked offense in the league (depending on whose stats you look at). If they can get their turnovers just average and their defense average and Andre is Andre, you never know.
Well, Schaub was in Atlanta for three years during the period of time that Gibbs was there and installed his system. So, Schaub is very familiar with the offense. I think the only question concerning Schaub is his ability to stay healthy. If he can, I think he's immediately in that second tier of QBs after Palmer, Brady, and Manning.
