    Football Outsiders article 2011 Pressure Plays, Offense shows Matt Schaub was the most pressured QB last year.

    M.Schaub Plays/312, Pct Pressure/33.3%, Rk/1
    With Pass Pressure Yds/4.5, DVOA/-25.8%, Rk/2
    Without Pass Pressure Yds/9.4, DVOA/70.4%, Rk/3

    The Good
    DVOA without Pressure...Schaub ranked third
    DVOA with Pressure...Schaub ranked second

    The Bad
    Pressures...ranked first
    Hurries...ranked first

    Two things stand out in these numbers; Matt Schaub is outstanding when defenders are in his face, and last year defenders were in Matt Schaub's face too much.

    Ya, I love it when they blitz Matt because he often burns the defense but it does increase his risk for injury.

    I don't think anyone hates Schaub, I just think they worry about his durability.

    This is fantastic considering Foster out for two games, five games without AJ.

    This makes me even more worried about our O line.

    Does getting sacked count as a pressure?

    Cause off the top of my head without looking up stats, I have a hard time believing that Blane Gabbert was pressured less than Schaub.

    That number is skewed alot. Matt Schaub does a lot of naked bootleg passes where he doesn't have an olinemen pulling to block. Anytime a quarterback goes on a naked bootleg he is gonna get pressured.

    To me, this just says that teams are really worried about our passing game and are bringing a lot of heat. They don't want Matt sitting back there and picking them apart.

    Since Matt was only 23rd in the league in terms of sack percentage, he did OK against it and didn't take as many negative plays as he could have.

    It helps when you have AJ to throw it to

    Except that he didn't have AJ to throw it to for 6 (out of 10) games he played in 2011.

    Goat I know your post is sarcastic .... but it is somewhat truthful in the eye's of many. They think Schaub is upgradable , that he's no Brady , Brees , Manning or Rogers .... and who wouldnt want one of those guy's under center for their team ?!

    Um....he's not.

    Not complaining, because he's good and everybody can't have one of those, but he's not. It's not his fault either; he just doesn't have an arm like those guys. To me, Matt Schaub is kinda like Peyton Manning, but with a lazer, spaghetti arm, LOL.

    Winston wasn't terrible in pass pro last year, but he did struggle some at times. Even he admitted that on the radio. He single handedly kept Miami in the game and almost got TJ killed against Atlanta. It wasn't one of his better years protecting the QB. But Ferguson of the Jets is on the list Goatcheese provided with Winston and Jets fans will admit that it wasn't one of his better years. It happens to even the best of Tackles.

    Schaub definitely didn't seem overly pressured to me. There were a few games it didn't even seem like he was touched at all. The Raiders and Ravens games he was beat up and he played a shortened season so maybe the numbers are skewed somewhat because of that.

    I agree with that .... but in many a fans eye , nothing short of one of those players is good enough.

    Nobody is saying he's a HoFer, but there's a middle ground between the all time greats and average. :thisbig:

    I think he's in a group with guys like Rapistberger, and Rivers but a little behind Eli and Stafford.

    I remember a lot of balls being thrown away last year. Typically Schaub will roll out, limiting himself to half the field which rapidly fills with DBs, finds all his receivers covered and ultimately throws the ball out of bounds to avoid an approaching defender. I saw this happen multiple times in certain games and I'm sure these contributed to the high number of hurries in a big way.
