I really can't wait for wagon-jumping Texan fans to have to STFU about how we 'gave up too much' for Schaub. What a load of crap.

This is a really good article. Covers a lot of Schaub's WCO experience from UVA.

Quote:
I evaluated Schaub when he was coming out of Virginia in 2004. I sincerely believe he was playing in the best coached offense in college football and executing the principles of the West Coast offense better than any college QB ever had. It was clear to me by watching the structure of the offense, his footwork and superior accuracy that NFL teams would be all over him.

I've argued with people for years about Carr limiting our offense....but I guess we had to get a real QB for some folks to figure out that it wasn't the coaches as much as it was the guy pulling the trigger. You can't call a play if you don't think your QB can execute it.

A QB that can't execute a Shotgun formation should've given most people the hint.

I expect our offense to continually become more diversified as the season progresses. We now have a QB that has brain matter filling his head rather than air.

I still don't understand that.

Carr was fine in the shotgun BEFORE last year and he does fine in the shotgun in Carolina. There was some other problem there.

He did that from every formation, not just the shotgun. The shotgun issue was not Carr's fault. Just a couple weeks ago on the Kubiak show on 610AM, Kubiak alluded to the center being a problem with that last year. With Carr gone, he has no reason to throw Hodgdon under the bus, unless that was the problem. Hodgdon is gone now, too, as it were, but the interview to which I refer happened prior to that cut.

He wasn't that impressive anywhere. The point is that last year a lot of people were saying that we weren't running any shotgun formations because Carr couldn't do it. But... that can't be the reason. Sure, he might not have been making the reads that Kubiak wanted him to make and he might have been jumping around in his progressions or whatever but that's no reason to totally shelve all shotgun plays.

Last year, if we were in the shotgun, it was a QB running play. I don't understand why that was.

Would we cut all shotgun plays from the playbook because our backup center was bad at them?

This baffles me.

This is why I pin it on YKW. It wasn't just Hogdon. We started the year with Flanny and ended with McKinney. I know I've tossed back a few since then, but I don't remember seeing the gun with them either.

I just don't think YKW could process all the info at once. Meaning, handle the snap, begin progressions then make the decision to throw. He couldn't multi-task.

Oh well, we don't have to beat that horse anymore.
