If Schaub hadn't have been over a yard better than Sage then I'd be inclined to agree with you. I dunno. I do remember thinking that his throws were on target but not accurate. Several times the ball was behind or high which never bodes well for the receiver gaining yards after the catch. And I left my spreadsheet I made at work. Forgot to email it to myself, but I'll look at it next week and give you more stats.
My question is this, if the stats paint one picture, Kubes agrees with it, shanahan agrees with it and the depth chart agrees with it... then why do we assume the anomaly is the case? Statistically speaking, Sage's first year was MUCH better than his second, and the coaching staff thought they needed to go get a starter after his first year. I dunno, I've been accused of over thinking a bit, but if the stats line up and the organizations view (including kubes) line up... why not believe it?
