Default Schaub named starter in Oakland

Not a surprise. What I didn't know was the connection between Raider HC Dennis Allen and Schaub.

Quote:
Matt Schaub will not need to win a quarterback competition in Oakland to become the Raiders’ starting quarterback. He already is the Raiders’ starting quarterback.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said after Schaub arrived in a trade with the Texans that Schaub will open the season as the No. 1 quarterback.

We brought Matt Schaub in to be our starting quarterback,” Allen said. “We feel very confident that he is going to be able to come in and function in that role and be outstanding for us. Obviously, we love having competition within the team, but right now Matt Schaub is our starting quarterback.”

The Raiders also have Terrelle Pryor, Matt McGloin and Trent Edwards on the roster, and they could draft a quarterback like Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel or Derek Carr. But Allen, who was an assistant coach in Atlanta when the Falcons drafted Schaub in 2004, says Schaub is his guy.

“This is a guy that is a two-time Pro Bowl player. When you get an opportunity to add those type of players, that’s what we’re looking to do,” Allen said.
Allen knew Schaub from his days in Atlanta. He also had to be impressed with Schaub rallying the Texans to two 4th quarter FGs against the Raiders last year, only to lose by 5. That was one of the two games where Matt didn't throw an INT (the other vs the Rams). Of course, he only played a half in those contests.

I've got to admit that I was wrong about the Raiders looking for a starter. I thought they would be content with Pryor & McGluv'n....

Perhaps I was also wrong about the Browns as they were also said to be interested in trading for him.

Default Re: Schaub named starter in Oakland

I have no idea what kind of a season Schaub is gonna have in Oakland, but he might fool a lot of Texans "fans" who think he's washed up in this league. Obviously there's quite a few NFL people (and not just the Raider's HC) who think Matts still got a future in this league. BTW, Schaub was a whole lot cheaper for the Raiders than Carson was.

I don't see him starting for long, but who knows? If Oakland doesn't have a good O-line they got themselves a very immobile QB who is gonna get killed.

Matt usually does a pretty good job about getting the ball out & avoiding sacks. Not as good as Peyton, but better than most.

If something doesn't dramatically change this year, Schaub will only think he had a bad OL. Last year, ProFootballFocus ranked Raiders OL line at #29 as compared to Texans #16.

Revamped. They signed Penn, Saffold, Howard, and Boothe. One of those OTs will slide to G, with Watson watching/learning unless he surprises.

What if (crackhead theory) Schaub leads Oakland to a championship?
I think I might cry if that happens.

I thought they failed Saffold on a physical & St. Louis re-signed him.

Losing Veldheer is a negative. Penn has durability but is far from anything special.......and he is not OT material, maybe guard. The Raiders continue to pee money down the drain with contracts such as what humdrum Howard got. And Boothe looked less than stellar with the Giants playing guard or center. Last but not least, wasn't Watson the one someone on the Raiders said he just doesn't look like he has it? Between calf and knee injuries and surgery, he virtually never saw the field........and if I remember, he's never played LT, but that was what they wanted of him. I've never really understood the Raiders of old. And now, the Raiders are getting rid of Al's players while replacing them just as quickly with more expensive but no more productive players.

I don't believe that there is a reason to be to excited about what OL the Raiders will be putting together to protect their QB(s) in 2014.

Yes this was the plan all along. After two 4-12 seasons -- hampered by salary cap -- Reggie needs to show some improvement now to keep his job, IMO.

I think it'll be Browns vs. Raiders for Sammy Watkins.

Kinda random, but I got a nice giggle out of the bolded. Rallying to two FGs to lose by 5. I don't know why I got a kick out of it. Maybe it's typical to what last season was, a huge bucket o fail

Hey, I was trying to be positive. Schaub can lead a team to FG range. But he can't kick it in for ya.

Not surprising. After the season he had here in Houston, and the way he was treated, I doubt he had any intention of playing for the Texans this year.

Thanks for the share TK. Was a good interview and debate. It's funny that this will be the soap opera story of the season. All of the haters sitting on the edge of their seat chanting "pick 6", pick 6, pick 6" every time Schaub plays, and all of the supporters fingers crossed, biting their nails chanting "no pick 6, no pick 6, no pick 6". Good Luck Matt!

Edit: You gotta wonder what it feels like to be TP. I mean how does one feel about being demoted to 3rd string, and most likely cut for a 32 year old, washed up, record pick 6 throwing, concrete shoes wearing, mediocre QB like Matt Schaub?
