This is the most telling stat IMO. His accuracy has been garbage for most of the season. His deep throw seems worse (how is that possible, I have no idea!), his short timing routes are terrible. Wonder how much of this can be blamed on the loss of OTAs and mini camps...but they did work out together for the most part and the offense is basically the same. The guy has just been "off" and his completion total shows that.

I'm going to get a little off the main subject here, but I hate it when we go with an empty backfield and the D (of course) does this. We've had no success with it, the last couple of games I know at least, and it just doesn't make sense for us to do that when our backfield is such a threat and keeps the D honest. Every time I see that lineup with no RB(s) in the backfield I cringe and know that the best case scenario will be Schaub throwing it away before he gets crushed...

I'm not saying the guys in the backfield always have to stay in to protect--in fact, I really like it when Foster starts in position for a run play and then goes out for a possible reception--but, at least one RB needs to be in place as a visual threat-to-run.
