    Whatever credibility this writer had was gone when he put Josh Freeman 5 spots higher than Schaub. Schaub may have his limitations but Josh Freeman, really?

    Freeman is 6 years younger with a stronger arm and at least some mobility. In overall performance, they are closer than not, but Freeman has a better chance of improving than Schuab. In short we probably know what Schuab is, but we don't know what other mediocore guys like Bradford, Tannehill and Freeman will become. They are 'better" for that reason alone.

    He's a whole 2 spots ahead of Locker if that puts it even more in perspective for people. Schaub has had his terrible moments, but its funny to see where Cam Newton is in relation to him and I'm a Cam fan. I can't say its a travesty because I'd rate Schaub middle of the pack right now with the capability of being a top 10 QB if he removes the vagina from in between his legs and grows a pair. His limitations are in his head in my opinion.

    Schaub is lumped in a group between 16-23 along with Rivers and Cutler. Regardless of where you think he belongs in that group, Schaub does belong in that group based upon his performance in 2012. The Matt Schaub of 2009-2011 wiuld rank higher.

    Agree. He should be down around 27 or 28th, and depending on what Weeden and Gabbert do in their new systems this year, could fall to 29th. Don't forget he has had his entire career as a starter in the same system to prove himself, and hasn't. Some of these other guys have had to juggle multiple systems, OC's, and/or HC's. I would have no problem having anyone on that list above him starting this year, and would throw in a definite for Dalton or Palmer in his place as well, and wouldn't think Ponder or Locker could do much worse than Matt has.

    Yep. I think the tiers are correct.

    You can quibble on where Schaub ranks in that particular tier, I probably wouldn't put him last, but I think it's the tier he belongs in, and I certainly could make a case for each QB in that tier to be ranked ahead of him (and vice versa).

    I'm not a Schaub fan, but I do think he's a bit low on that list. This is not to say I don't want him replaced, because I do. It's just there isn't anyone else on the team or avaliable for signing that could step in and do better for the upcoming season. The Texans seriously need to be looking for a future QB.

    I think that list is absurd. Schaub is in the top half of Qb's in the league IMO. I created my own list of the top 20 guys, here it is.:
    1. Rodgers
    2. Brady
    3. Brees
    4. P. Manning
    5. E. Manning
    6. Big Ben
    7. Luck
    8. Matt Ryan
    9. Kaepernick
    10. Wilson
    11. RG3
    12. Flacco
    13. Romo
    14. Schaub
    15. Stafford
    16. Cutler
    17. Newton
    18. Dalton
    19. Freeman
    20. Rivers
    I think this is more accurate list, someone's potential doesn't matter in this list until they reach it.

    I think he's ranked way too low but I'm not worried about it.

    He wasn't required to put up big numbers to win last year and he didn't. I don't believe that means that he can't.

    Can we merge this thread with the "Take a Bow Mr. McNair" thread? :kitten:

    If the ranking is 2012 in a vacuum, I've got no problem with where he landed.

    If the ranking is based on the player's entire career, he's too low (I'd put him somewhere in the low teens).

    If the ranking is based on who you'd take for the next 1-3 seasons, it's probably a little bit too low, but as of right now, I can't argue too much. The reality is he's got the 2013 season to change or reinforce the perception. Beyond that, who knows.

    And while I have my opinion, basically, with the vast majority of subjective rankings - whether team or individual - I agree with the Shakespearean angle that it's a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    I would say the ranking is a tad low, but not too inaccurate either considering Schaub:

    - Constantly looks to check down or throw it out when pushed out of pocket
    - Is aging and not getting any younger
    - Had extensive work done on his foot, taking away whatever little mobility he ever had
    - Constantly underthrows his targets
    - No longer throws accurately long distance
    - Can NOT be counted on to lead us to victory

    Schaub is what it he is, a system manager and not even that great of one.
