Default Just About Ready to Close the Book on Schaub

I don't give a damn about stats. I realize the OL is not playing well. I also realize Matt Schaub is a problem.

David Carr had potential right up until about mid-way through the 2004 season. I, amongst many others, tried to figure out what was going wrong for a long time period after that. I'm able to recognize that folly now. Schaub has hit his ceiling, and he simply cannot make deep throws when the guy is not ten yards clear of a defender.

I am getting close to that point but not quite there yet....but razor thin close.

I'm going to call a spade a spade. Matt Schaub can't lead an elite team.

Me too. That's why I said "just about" in the title. I'm waiting out the playoffs.

Physically not able to do it. Bottom line. I think he knows what to do but physically can't. Even on bootlegs he is so slow he throws the ball late and short. Even when play works he can't execute.

I have never said a bad thing about Schaub before. But lets face it... he is a fat blob with a noodle arm that folds under pressure.

That Denver game had me so fooled.

Not only have I closed the book on Schaub, I've closed the book on Gary Kubiak as well. Schaub is just a extension of his head coach. In big games/situations both suffer from turtle ____ syndrome and come up short.

Last I checked, Kubiak isn't the one who is under throwing his receivers. I could be wrong about that, though. Oh wait, I get it. He picked the QB though, right?

Lame.

But back to the OP, yeah, I'm ready to close the book on Schaub myself.

How is it freaking possible to be so disgusted, disappointed, and embarrassed about a soon to be 12-4 team. This is just nuts.

He controls every play, Schaub is an extension of Kubiak. Do you ever see Schaub audible? Schaub actually hits a good percentage of his throws. My problem with Kubiak is he goes through stretches where he is stubborn calling plays that aren't working. He is also conservative and that is rubbing off on the team. Get a big lead then take your foot off the gas pedal. We got a good record then took the gas pedal off. Without Wade he is an 8-8 coach the proof is there.

I'm not buying that.

To me, it's the difference between when Carr was here & when Sage started, or when Schaub took over.

Same plays, just look totally different with an attitude change at QB.

Look at San Francisco. SAme plays.... different swagger.

Kubiak has his faults as well, just saying. The QB play issues are on Schaub.

Big contradiction to your posts before where you criticized Schaub.

Are you saying our running game is playing well right now??


Do you think our O line is playing really well right now??


Do you feel like the play calling is helping this team out right now??



That's a hell of a lot of questions I'm asking. I think there are rhetorical questions that should have a no at the end of it. That's a Kubiak problem when an entire offense has gotten this bad at the end of a season.

Ignoring who the HC and the over all leader of the offense is which is Kubiak is being selective at who you don't want to admit the problems are associated with. Schaub can't control his Oline or what happens in the running game.

His tendency to just go down at the slightest bit of pressure is awful. He doesn't even try to extend the play just go down.

No wonder the defense has given up the last 2 games. They just imitate Schaub.

It's too late to replace him with a QB who is better. We missed our chance on Peyton Manning last off-season. I don't see anybody else out there who you can deem an upgrade? We've thrown all our eggs into the Schaub basket. He better pick up his level of play and lead us to a second half comeback win today,
