I have. It was funny b/c I had Alge Crumpler on my fantasy football team a couple of year ago so I was watching the Atlanta game and Vick got hurt. Schaub came in and Crumpler had his best fantasy game of the season. Finished with over 100 yards and a TD. I remember thinking at the time that I wish Schaub started over Vick so Crumpler would put up better stats for me!

He didn't say why. He started a thread and didn't give any reasons. I'm not disagreeing with him, I'm asking him why in a roundabout way.

I have watched him play, thanks to NFL Sunday Ticket over the last three years. I always thought he was a good QB, but just in Vick's shadow. I did not think we would get him, but we did. So, from what I saw when he did play, I am happy he is here. By the way, I was a Carr supporter, but I think MS could run circles around DC.

Default Re: How many of you actually have watched Schaub play?

I saw a lot of Atlanta when i was living in florida...watched the entire schaub/patriots tilt, saw him in spot duty against new orleans i beleive. If i could sum up in one word what he brings that David doesn't, its COMPETENCE. One belongs in the nfl, and you will see that come training camp.

I saw his performance against the Patriots. I remember chuckling to myself about the fact that the Falcons were making so many changes to their team in order to improve Vick when it looked like they had the solution to their QB problems in hand in Schaub.

Default Re: How many of you actually have watched Schaub play?

i've probably seen him more than most of you. i've seen him play while he was at the university of virgina. and i've seen him in limited action as a falcon.

like i've said in other threads, the guy is going to be good. he played under a former ny jets head coach, al groh, who was a parcells' product. therefore, schaub was exposed to some of what goes on in the nfl before he was drafted by the falcons. and he's now had a couple of years in the league as a backup.

statistically speaking, he was uva's version of philip rivers. rivers broke all nc state and acc passing records, and schaub broke nearly all of uva's passing records. schaub did this despite splitting starts his freshman and sophmore seasons, and becoming the full-time starter shortly into his junior season. they both had a career completion percentage of 67%. schaub led the nation in his senior year with 71.5% and rivers was second with 71% (something like that). and they're almost the same height and weight.

i can't speak too much on schaub's intangibles and tell you all kinds of awesome of stories about him, like i can when it comes to philip rivers. however, i can tell you that schaub has never had character issues. he was an academic in school. i never read about him complaining while he had to split starts. he isn't the most athletic guy, but he gets the job done.

keep in mind that i'm a die-hard fan of a rival university, and i'm here being much too complimentary of schaub. i really like the guy, and i think he's going to be a star in this league. he just needed his chance to play. not to take anything away from schaub, but i've always seem him as a poor man's philip rivers.

Default Re: How many of you actually have watched Schaub play?

They showed on a clip on NFLN of Schaub running for a nice gain vs. Patriots, a fairly stout defense.

I thought he couldn't run? The word has been that he oozes along the stadium floor like molasses going downhill in December...and yet the clip I just saw was that he was sprinting down the field for 10 or 15 yards. Looked good to me. The Pats were having to scramble to catch up to him.

I think the national media has it in for Houston. Seriously.

It's been 95% negative about the Schaub deal.

I've seen him play, and I thought at the time "Now here's a guy hidden in obscurity who's going to make it someday...sheesh, it'd be nice to have him as our QB..."

I honest-to-goodness have always wanted this guy to be our QB. I can't believe we got him. I hope it works out like I have been imagining it in my head. You know how sometimes you watch someone play, for another team, and you close your eyes and you envision them doing the same thing for your team--with your team's jersey on? That's what I did when I saw him play. I sorta' put it away, though, over the past season or two...I figured DC was entrenched and wasn't going anywhere...so why waste the hope and expectation on it?

His interview on NFLN was soooooooooooo much better and more in-depth than what he had during today's Texans live presser.

I made a new thread about his NFLN interview, typing out what was asked and what he said in response. Check it out. It also has some Schefter scoop on DC's latest potential landing spot(s).

Breaking UVA's passing records is not really saying a lot.

They have put out three QBs of note in the past

Aaron Brooks
Don Majkowski

thought he'd be a franchise QB while at UVa, thought the same thing when playing limited duty in atlanta.

He reminds me of Farve a bit...but it will be interesting to see him play just a bit more...consistently.
