Default Re: Life Without Schaub: What if?

The difference between Schaub and HWWNBN is so amazingly vast that it's just insane to compare them. But. I will. Kinda. I remember when I was just hoping for a QB who could throw for over 3600 yards, 16+ TDs, and <13 INTs in a season. It wasn't good.
If you want to compare stats then it paints one picture, but if you compare them individually it is interesting.

Carr had a better arm and better wheels and was more of a pure athlete. He was a young rookie thrown into the fire and crushed play after play. Many of his questionable decisions came from trying to extend the play or do too much and force things, while some would say being shell-shocked.

Schaub had been in the league as a back up and was supposed to be a plug and play superstar if you believed the hype surrounding all the teams trying to trade for him. He doesn't have a strong arm and has never been mobile so what you need is a pocket passer with superior accuracy and great football intellect who doesn't make mistakes with the ball. What you have is a guy who has piled up yards and stats from receivers YAC and quite often throws the ball off target only to have the intended receiver adjust and save his stats. Typically his glaring mental mistakes are just that, glaring mental mistakes, not generated by his competitiveness and overwhelming desire to make a play or give that extra effort.

I agree they are vastly different, but in the end believe the stat that matters most will elude them both in their careers. Super Bowl winning quarterback.
