    He's doing and saying all the right things, so he's off to a good start. But we really won't know until the season starts and his decisions are for the record and analysis.

    Not to be picky but you misspelled Schaub on the title.

    It's way to early to tell ... besides I did'nt see the ex qb practice so I can't make a comparison .

    We'll know pretty quick how he plays in a game ... that I have seen the ex do .

    I haven't been there and at the end of last season, I was in the ABC group. But. Honestly. Looking at some of the clips, that ball looks like it's coming out awfully low when Schaub throws it.

    Am I looking at the clips wrong? Were the clips filmed at a bad angle?

    I took advantage of a couple opportunities on Saturday to let some Texans and other media types know that we've heard enough of the L word already... not sure if it will do any good.

    I thought Schaub and Sage were both good . How does this translate into a game ... beats me .

    What I did notice was their throwing to everybody but AJ . You can tell that they want more than one reciever .

    I would call Atlanta and ask if they are willing to give us a 1st and 2nd round pick to have him back ... nothing against Schaub ... but I'd take the picks because he's not Elway .

    I think Schaub is at a slight disadvantage because he's new , has more pressure , and is learning Kubiak and his system .

    I did'nt see Schaub throw long , so I can't tell arm strength . I'll be there Thursday , so we'll see .

    I'm not saying he's aiming low. I'm saying he's releasing low. That was the whole problem with getting balls knocked down the past few years.

    If you can take a look at the Day 4 Highlights (not sure if you've got the bandwidth), it looks like Schaub releases the ball very low, like HWWNBN. I had heard he released the ball high and stood tall in the pocket. There are a couple of throws shown in that tape where his release looks very "shot-puttish" (including a pick).
