    Yep thats me chomping on the crow over Sage being better than Matt. If we get the production from Matt for the remainder of theis season like we got saturday night then he hands down deserves the starting job. I know I was all in Sages corner but Matt just took it to the bank and deposited a gem.
    So if all you I told you so's need to pile on me as I enjoy the crow feathers and all, then here ya go, let me have it.

    If we get production from Matt this season like we did Saturday then he will be deserving a Pro Bowl to go along with his starting job....Sorry may be getting a little ahead of myself there. lol.

    I think Matt is better than Sage. But lets not forget the Saints had the 32 ranked pass defense last season

    True dat......

    I won't be able to watch the game, till I get home tonight. So I still haven't seen Matt do anything that would make him "special".


    I never said Sage was better than Matt...... only that they were both good enough to get the job done. I hope Matt does separate himself in 2008.

    Its ok...thats why Kubiak is the coach and you are not..lol. I always liked Schaub since seeing him play at UVA. The guy is heady and laid back. He doesn't have the strongest arm but if Andre/Andre/Walter like him...then I love him. :fans:

    Greenwood has made me eat crow a few times. He's also made me spit it back out, I wish he would make up his mind.

    I have seen many posts similar to this, all because one preseason performance. Schaub did look good vs the Saints playing the "lets throw at Jason David" game. But now everybody is jumping on his nuts because of one preseason game? If Sage happened to look better than Matt, the first thing I would expect to hear is "its just a preseason game." Now people are talking about Matt as a top 5 QB and comparing him to Tom Brady because he had a good preseason game.

    I'm surprised crow isn't on the endangered species list thanks to Mario Williams!

    If Matt produces in every game like he did against the Saints . . . he'll be the greatest QB who ever played. Nobody goes 14-for-16, 183, 2td's all the time (actually, it was 14-for-14 not counting Davis's drop and the throwaway Matt was forced in to when the screen pass was foiled), so I hope that's not the bar you are setting for what Matt has to do to definitively justify the trade and starting over Sage.

    As a longtime, long-suffering UVA fan, I like to think of myself as the driver of the Matt Schaub bandwagon. I've been sold on his play since 2002. But what remains to be seen is whether he can survive an NFL season. At some point, the guy who can play all the time should start over the superior but physically-questionable player. Continuity is very important. Yes, the hits that hurt Schaub (apart from the Odom sack) were highly illegal, but we know that gutter-thugs like Albert Haynesworth and Drayton Florence would gladly give the 15 yards to knock Matt out again. Defensive coordinators everywhere would be greatful if they did.

    Believe me, when it is time for the doubters to eat their bad-trade/start-Sage crow, I'll be the waiter. But I'm not sure dinner is served quite yet.

    Rep to anyone who admits to being wrong. One game doesn't prove it but that was a heck of a game.

    I'll wait to call judgement until after the Girls game. If Schaub does separate himself, I still believe that Sage can pick up where Schaub leaves off if he gets injured later in the season. One thing not to forget (no seems to forget this in the hot RB competition discussions), when trying to judge the better of 2 players, you need to also factor in their ability to stay on the field. That ability can offset some minor deficiencies amongst players.
