Ron Jaworski’s quarterback rankings carry a good deal of weight. He and Trent Dilfer break down quarterback play as well as anyone in the media, and I’d say that no matter who they worked for.
I was taken aback by that, particularly given Schaub’s recent struggles.
Of Schaub, Jaworski writes:
There's no other way to put it than by saying Schaub is in a real slump. The Texans have not been able to get the ball downfield, and, for Schaub to have success, they have to connect on those shot plays. He is not a matriculator; he's not going to steadily complete passes on a long drive. He needs a few plays that can chew up big chunks of yards. Houston is another team that has yet to enjoy great playoff success. This weekend presents a huge game for the Texans, and for Schaub.
It doesn’t sound like anything close to a guy who ranks as the ninth-best quarterback in the league to me. How about you?
