    I don't give a damn about stats. I realize the OL is not playing well. I also realize Matt Schaub is a problem.

    David Carr had potential right up until about mid-way through the 2004 season. I, amongst many others, tried to figure out what was going wrong for a long time period after that. I'm able to recognize that folly now. Schaub has hit his ceiling, and he simply cannot make deep throws when the guy is not ten yards clear of a defender.

    I'm going to call a spade a spade. Matt Schaub can't lead an elite team.

    Me too. That's why I said "just about" in the title. I'm waiting out the playoffs.

    No mobility and just not a deep threat. He's just not as talented as these new breed of qbs.

    also ready to close the book on Kubiak. He should have been gone and Wade saved his job. Now its time for Wade to take his job. Kubiak is a little bich

    Physically not able to do it. Bottom line. I think he knows what to do but physically can't. Even on bootlegs he is so slow he throws the ball late and short. Even when play works he can't execute.

    I have never said a bad thing about Schaub before. But lets face it... he is a fat blob with a noodle arm that folds under pressure.

    That Denver game had me so fooled.

    Not only have I closed the book on Schaub, I've closed the book on Gary Kubiak as well. Schaub is just a extension of his head coach. In big games/situations both suffer from turtle ____ syndrome and come up short.

    It's too late to replace him with a QB who is better. We missed our chance on Peyton Manning last off-season. I don't see anybody else out there who you can deem an upgrade? We've thrown all our eggs into the Schaub basket. He better pick up his level of play and lead us to a second half comeback win today,

    been telling you guys for years, but Schaub..

    - can't throw the long ball
    - late or doesn't do his progression
    - can't run for (*)@$#

    Not a good combination, defenses are sitting on the short/mid range zones and trying to force the long ball.

    Agreed. This team looks totally out of it. They don't even look like they want to be there. I want Gary Kubiak out and honestly, I don't want Wade as his replacement. Wade is missing ONE major defensive player in Brian Cushing. I know that is a major blow, but it shouldn't destroy your entire defense.

    I want them all gone. This team needs new management and a new quarterback.

    Last I checked, Kubiak isn't the one who is under throwing his receivers. I could be wrong about that, though. Oh wait, I get it. He picked the QB though, right?

    Lame.

    But back to the OP, yeah, I'm ready to close the book on Schaub myself.

    How is it freaking possible to be so disgusted, disappointed, and embarrassed about a soon to be 12-4 team. This is just nuts.

    I'm very close to wanting to see Yates.

    I'll take moxie and mobility over "knowing the playbook backwards and forwards" at this point.

    Schaub has to play better. The colts arent even all that.

    There was no cap room to sign Manning.

    He controls every play, Schaub is an extension of Kubiak. Do you ever see Schaub audible? Schaub actually hits a good percentage of his throws. My problem with Kubiak is he goes through stretches where he is stubborn calling plays that aren't working. He is also conservative and that is rubbing off on the team. Get a big lead then take your foot off the gas pedal. We got a good record then took the gas pedal off. Without Wade he is an 8-8 coach the proof is there.
