His long ball strength is a bit worrying because I'm not sure if it's his arm or his accuracy. I thought he was a decent long ball guy last year, so I'm a bit puzzled. Perhaps my perception is just a bit off.
Matt's turnovers and arm strength are my biggest concerns.

Turnovers can be fixed - or at least reduced - by being smarter with the ball. I have faith that Matt and Kubes will work on the decision making thing and get that under control.

Arm strength cannot be taught. I don't know if he doesn't have it or misjudges how fast/far his WRs are down field or just tends to put too much air under long throws. But I have noticed that if its a 35/40 yd throw or longer, our guys end up having to slow down and wait for the ball. The long throw to AJ against the Bears was a classic example. AJ had to almost stop and wait for the ball. Don't know how one fixes that.

Well when we got him, and I saw the two twos floating off to Atlanta, I posted he looked like Chris Chandler to me. I don't think we've made back the investment we spent on him yet. If he's clean he produces. The year he makes sixteen games as a starter, that will be his first. I believe he's good enough to get us to fourteen wins next year. If they lose a couple of o-line guys....we'll struggle in again at 8-8.

I consider him a lot like Tracy McGrady: If he can just stay on the field, he will produce. However, health always seems to be the problem.

I like Schaub though and never hopped on the Rosen-copter bandwagon. I have always said that there is a reason that Sage is a backup. And I still stick by that.

Or what if Schaub throws for 2,500 yds, 15 TDs, and 15 INTs but we make it to the AFC championship game?

what if a frog had wings.....?

He's good enough to put up enough points for that; i.e., 24-27 pts/game. Don't know if our defense will improve enough to keep the other guys under 30. That's what happened to us early this year - the D couldn't hold anyone under 30 pts. If the D starts holding the other guys under 21 pts/game and we repeat the offensive output of this year, we can win 11-13 games.

Thanks for clearing that up on arm strength. I don't know what I was watching last year, but I thought he had some good throws to the other Andre (Davis) who is a burner...and who, btw, I think really disappeared this year. Was he #4 behind DA?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that. It looked like AD came into the game as the #2 when AJ needed a blow or whenever they wanted AJ in the slot. It seemed like we wasted a good talent by not using his speed as a second downfield threat more often.

I'm sorry but there's no way David (too short) Anderson should hit the field before Andre Davis.

And about my lack of arm strength theory, that's all it is... ...even worse, its an opinion - you know what they say about those.

Davis is not a slot receiver, but that is the role we tried to have him play this year. Davis is a pure burner who functions best as a #1 or #2 wideout; indeed, his big numbers last year came when AJ was out and he became our #1. Of course, he is not in AJ's league, but his ability to make plays downfield makes him a decent #1 option--as a backup for AJ, we could do much, much, much worse.

This year, with AJ healthy and Walter firmly entrenched opposite him, the slots are the only openings for the other wideouts. Davis is simply not well-suited for the slot: that spot rewards the shifty more than the speedy. Anderson is the closest thing we have to a pure slot, and he's nobody's ideal for the position. The best slot receiver in Houston just wrapped up his career for Rice a couple hours ago.
