    Seems like some double talk is going on.


    Hard to say when you'll be ready, but you know you'll be 100% by training camp? Huh?

    I think he's just being hopeful, which he should be.

    Training camp started on July 31st last year. He is saying that he doesnt know specifically when he will be ready, but that it will be by TC.

    I'm reading his words as he said them and I think it's kind of strange to say that you don't know when you'll be ready, but you know you'll be 100% by a certain date.

    If you know that you'll be 100% by the time training camp rolls around then you should know when you'll be 75%, or 80%, or 95%....

    Truth is, he may never get to 100% ever again.

    To me it just sounds like he is being hopeful, but that is what he is supposed to be doing.

    Has he ever been 100%??

    I've seen people run from slow motion explosions in action movies faster than he does a bootleg in real time.

    I could care less how slow he runs a bootleg as long as he continues to fake the defense out of their Nikes. Matt runs one of the most effective bootlegs I've seen. Now if we just had someone on other side to open the field a bit more......

    I've been extremely skeptical of the FO's noise regarding how definite Schaub's recovery is for week 1 next season.

    The guy has been walking round with his leg held together with more rebar than your average skyscraper and yet all we've heard out of the FO has been tales of him wanting to play golf and being right on track etc.

    I'm no medical expert, but I find it hard to believe that they could be sure how he's going to cope and recover before this point, nows when he begins the real healing. The dude has got a different geometry now, its like changing the suspension setup on your car, he's going to have to relearn the finer points of his balance etc to be able to throw the ball accurately.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if we are that team who reaches for their 3rd round graded QB in the first this year, I'd be upset that its a sign Schaub won't be back week 1, but not surprised.

    Our FO love to make all the wrong noises ahead of draft day to throw opposing teams' draft boards off, and stop people trading up ahead of us to take our pick, if they were 100% sure he'd be back, I'd half expect them to be making a load of noises about taking a QB in the first as misdirection. I hope I'm totally wrong on this.

    I still don't believe that Schaub will be 100% when he comes back from this, and I also don't believe he'll be starting game one of the regular season. I have a distinct feeling we'd all better get used to Yates.

    Exactly. This isn't the option. It isn't him threatening to run. Schaub's bootlegs work because (Foster and the running game is good should be #1 but it was effective when we had an ineffective running game) (a) he has one of the best play fakes around and (b) because he is diligent and doesn't just stand there on actual running plays - he will often roll out after handing the ball off. Mutually built plays. Schaub rolling out on running plays disrupts the D as a yin yang to Foster acting like he has the ball when Schaub is boot legging.

    Good. Looks like we'll have our starting QB.

    I share the exact sentiments.

    I also have concerns about if he really is on track at that point how much this will affect other aspects of his game. A QB with already limited mobility could be even less? Will it lead to more hits? Will Matt be able to stand up to a high hit count? More shotgun formations?

    At least over the next few months its likely Yates will be getting the bulk or the starters reps, which helps.

    Oh my gosh! Nevermind the witty humor, let's be all technical! Maybe it's so effective because of how slow he runs it...haha, the defense thinks he couldn't possibly still have the ball.
