If you go to Sportingcharts.com, put everything since 2007 into a spread sheet, qualify the QBs (let's say a minimum of 1,500 pass attempts over those six years), Schaub is easily somewhere between top 5-10 in Air Yard per Attempt.
One more time...

That has nothing to do with what I said.

One reason that you can't look at the per is because since 2007 Schaub has played in a full 16 games only 3 times. If you just compare his own stats from year to year you can see that his YPA averages are generally higher in seasons that he didn't finish. There is a big difference between throwing about 300 to throwing about 600 passes.

That's why I look year to year...And from year to year Schaub has benefited greatly from YAC. Not moreso than most of the league in any given year, but over the time span of about '08 to present Schaub has had top ten guys in YAC each year....sometimes more than one in a given season...

You can't average that stat out because one big year could skew your entire average for the time span. Whereas if you look at in on a year to year basis you can see who most often benefits from YAC...And Schaub has clearly benefited from it a great deal...
