Default Schaub to AJ... best tandem in the NFL today?

They make it look easy even against the NFL's best as evidenced just moments ago in the pro bowl. AJ/Schaub made Asante Samuel look foolish

Hold up a second.

1. There is no blitzing, per Pro Bowl rules.

2. Those defenses' d-lines are not trying to smack the QB--Even Mario Williams and another guy (on separate plays) pulled up and refused to jack up Aaron Rodgers when they clearly could have if it were a real game.

3. Somehow, I don't think Asante Samuel was really asserting himself on that play. Did he stare at the QB? Yes. Did he see the pump fake? Yep. But once he saw the pump fake, and he knew it was Andre Johnson, he's not going to try and recover and break it up. He would rather jog away and not lose face over it.

It was a pretty play. Schaub didn't throw it into the stands, so props to keeping his composure together on that easy play.

Not sure to which statement(s) you were referring to.

Yeah, but the time Schaub had to throw tonight, and how defenses were playing us during the regular season was nothing like what we saw tonight. It kinda' made those two guys look like Manning-Harrison in their prime.

Of course, maybe that's their future starting next season. Would be fine by me!

I just got back to the hotel from the game and I agree. Our guys made it seem easy. During the game Matt was doing passing to Chad, Chris, and Brandon and I kept wondering what if.....We have the AJ piece locked in...,we need another...imo

if i heard them correctly, schaub and andre are the only tandem since favre/freeman to both lead the league in yards. shouldnt that be "made those two guys look like Schaub-Johnson in their prime"?

I find no joy in statistical randomness like that.

I'm a Wins-Loss guy. Trent Dilfer is a worse QB than Schaub, but Dilfer has a Super Bowl ring. If Schaub and AJ bring at least one ring to this franchise, then I will revel in the stats they make with each other (or individually).

Otherwise, like I have said in other threads, Andre Johnson will become the Barry Sanders of wide receivers--He will be stuck on a team who couldn't capitalize off of his genius as a talented ball player.

I know that's harsh, but that's how I look at it. As a teenager, the Oilers-Bills debacle seared it into my spirit. Warren Moon and his weapons for WRs could rack up the stats and the wins, but they choked when it counted the most. I want a Super Bowl title. I got my Rockets title, and an extra one on top, and now I want a Texans and an Astros set of titles. Badly.

Then I'm done. Everything else those three teams accomplish after that is gravy for this sports fan. 1 team down, two to go.

They are two of the best QB/WR combinations in the entire league hands down.

I won't disagree with AJ being the top reciever, but I don't think they're at the level of Brady/Moss yet.

When those two are on... yikes. Unstoppable.

Exactly. Tom Brady and Moss would still be higher in my eyes. The last season that they played together before this season they both broke records together. This season Moss had the most TD's of any WR if I'm not mistaken. AJ is a better all around WR to me than Moss though. I think AJ is the best WR in the league along with Fitzgerald. You could take any decent QB and as long as they've got pretty good protection and AJ and Fitz are both getting at least 1,400 yards so I wouldn't call them "the best tandem".

Manning to Reggie Wayne's been great for practically an entire decade now and won a SB together and might win their 2nd one together now, so with that being a fact for much longer and having great numbers from year to year I'd say as a tandem they're easily over AJ and Schaub. I wouldn't put any tandem over Manning and Wayne simply because of the longevity of their success together through wins and through statistics. Matt Scaub and Andre Johnson have only had one great season together where both of them played all 16 games as well, so I don't think they would even make the top 3 as far as a tandem with only having one full season together.
