I have this almost irrational belief that Matt Schaub is the answer at QB and more than that, he will turn that proverbial corner and be a great QB in the coming years, despite his turnover woes. That being said, have the last couple of games absolve him of mistakes made this year and are we now confident that he's our franchise QB for the next five or so years? Pros: I really like that he's able to move the ball, which is such a nice change of the early years of 3-and-out, but he also has much improved weapons around him. He also seems able to make a ton of different throws. Poise under pressure seems to be there, even when the O-line isn't playing up to snuff. Appears to be a leader on offense rather than just being the guy under center. Really good on the play action. Doesn't lose confidence after making mistakes, attacks the game. Can score in crunch time. Cons: Turnover prone. I'm not convinced he has the arm strength to throw great deep balls. Durability issues in his first year, unavoidable injuries in his second year. Too many grounding penalties, needs to figure out how to better get rid of the ball under pressure. Not too mobile. Red zone conversion lacking, both due to turnovers and play calling. Woeful inability to protect the ball when under pressure and on the run when trying to make a throw, resulting in too many fumbles. His decision making seems solid most of the time and he's able and willing to zip the ball into tight coverage and I think he's a smart and tough enough guy to really work on limiting turnovers. He needs to get better at feeling WHERE pressure is and making the judgment to pull the ball into his body instead of holding it out trying to make a pass, which allows the defender to easily swipe it out of his hands. I think these things can be learned, practiced and coached. I honestly feel like he could be a Drew Brees type of player. If y'all remember, Brees came into the league with SD and stunk it up for a couple years. I thought he was a bust, but then he turned it around and the game, as he said, slowed down for him. What do you all think? This had been and up and down season for QBs on our team. First Matt stunk, then Rosencopter was our savior, then Rosencopter showed us all why he is destined to be a back up, then Matt was okay, maybe we needed to draft another QB and start all over again, and now Matt seems like he's the QB this team needs. He has been inconsistent, which frustrates me because I have, as I have stated, an irrational belief that he's "the guy" for this team, and I was never this loyal or faithful in Mr. Mittens. Has Schaub answered his critics, or can we expect to see another up and down year next year plagued with turnovers?
