Default Schaub has a fan over at ESPN

Merrill Hoge was comparing Schaub to Leinart and said both are very good cerebral quarterbacks but he prefers Schaub because of his ability to challenge the defense with his arm to all areas of the field.

Default Re: Schaub has a fan over at ESPN

Isn't Merril Hodge the same guy that continues to bash VY?

I may be wrong (as I really don't care) but ESPN has a analyst that just continues to bash VY. Even when VY won ROY he said something like "One good year doesn't mean anything he will never develop the skills it takes to be a elite QB" and before he won ROY he said he wouldn't win it.

I wouldn't give Hodge too much credibility.

I would cheer for VY if he had played for the Bills or something...but since he went to Titans, and he said "I play for the real Houston team" or something he said...

I just hope when he plays us there are not people cheering for him...

That would be an insult to Tennessee fans. It implies, no states actually, that Houston has 2 teams, even though one plays in another state. Then again, look who was talking.

Hodge isn't my favorite person on ESPN (that would be Michael Smith) but when he's right, he's right. If there was justice in the NFL world and not so much HYPE, Joseph Addai would have been rookie of the year, followed by Maurice Jones-Drew, Lawrence Maroney, Marcus Colston (had he not gotten hurt), and then maaaybe Vince Young.

Back to topic: Merrill and Jaws look at the QB position the way it has been traditionally played and evaluates players based on that standpoint. And from that standpoint: reading the D, making decisions, releasing the ball on time, Matt is a pretty good QB. He doesn't have "a cannon for an arm" like YKW did or won't win many races (what's his 40 time, 6.? j/k).

The good news is he's got a good QB skill set; the better news is, the more he plays, the better he'll get.

Well, at least we all know the DROY went to the right person!

The good news is he's got a good QB skill set; the better news is, the more he plays, the better he'll get.

FYI, his 40 time was 5.02 (Carr 4.67).

It is interesting to see his draft profile and compare to what we have seen thus far. It appears that all the "positives" have been affirmed.......and the "negatives" are slowly being discredited............Hardly, arguable is your satement "the more he plays, the better he'll get."

Quote:
Position: QB
Class: Sr
School: Virginia
Conference: ACC
Ht., Wt.: 6'5½, 243
40 Time: 5.02
Grade: 3.42

Selected by Atlanta Falcons
Round 3, pick 27 (90 overall)

BIO: Posted passing numbers of 69.7 percent/2,952/18/10 as a senior with an efficiency rating of 141.03, even though he suffered an injury to his passing shoulder during the first game of the season. ACC Offensive Player of the Year as a junior after starting 14 games and throwing for 68.9 percent/2,976/28/7. Started six games under center as a sophomore and compiled 58.3 percent/1,524/10/8.

POSITIVES: Competitive signal-caller best in the short or intermediate passing game. Quickly sets up on the pocket, patient and buys time. Good field awareness, knows where his receivers are on the field and takes a hit in order to get the pass off. Zips the ball into the seam, accurate on the crossing patterns and puts touch on throws when necessary.

NEGATIVES: Cannot escape the rush or make throws on the move. Lacks the pinpoint pass placement and loses accuracy the further out to the flanks he is asked to throw the ball. Lacks a big league arm and not accurate with the deep pass.

ANALYSIS: An efficient signal-caller that plays within himself, Schaub has a nice feel for the position and makes good decisions in the pocket. Has limitations but should fit in nicely as a third-stringer.
