Default Re: The Myth of the Long Ball & Matt Schaub

The core of this thread is basically about Schaub's arm strength, which leads to accuracy or the lack of it.

If a guy can throw a deep out on a natural projection, he has the arm strength to throw the ball straight downfield because it is a shorter distance; simple as that.

The reason that some ball hang is not because of his lack of arm strength.

We already know that Schaub doesn't stack up to them at the moment.

But to say criticize Schaub because of it makes little sense.
This team isn't built (financially) to rely on Schaub as heavily as those other teams relying on the elite QBs.

The extra money goes to AJ to help out Matt Schaub, Foster to help avoiding third and long, and the defense to stop the opponents to give Schaub better chance (short field/turnover, etc.)

We even spent resources on getting ST players for the same reason.
I think the reason people do that is because if you look at who's winning the superbowls, it's those guys. We all want to win the superbowl, but winning it with Trent Dilfer is very rare..
