lets see here we got

Frisco
Rams
Cheifs
bye
INDy

im pretty sure Matt will stay the starter for these two NFC games cus lets face it these NFC games really don't matter I mean they matter but lets face it we not getting dat #1 seed lets just to baby steps now Win the divison then hope to get the #2 seed

Indy is the biggest game so maybe that will be Matts last game if he plays bad that game man its over or if he plays bad these next 3 weeks maybe we use the bye to get Yates rdy

That's part of being a fan, but it doesn't mean Schaub is somehow doomed to be a guy who gives up too many dangerous throws for pick-sixes. Plenty of famous quarterbacks have thrown three pick-sixes (or more!) in a three-week stretch before or during successful careers that included Super Bowl–winning seasons. Ben Roethlisberger and Drew Brees each had three-game stretches with three or more pick-sixes and then didn't throw another one for a year each. Peyton Manning had such a stretch in 2001, threw one pick-six between 2002 and 2006, did the same thing again in 2008, didn't throw a pick-six in 2009, then threw four of them in two weeks in 2010. He's still doing OK.

In fact, Eli Manning threw three pick-sixes in one game against the Vikings in November 2007 and didn't throw another pick-six until the following campaign. That ugly game also started a dismal run for Eli, one which suggested he might not be ready to play at the high level the Giants envisioned after taking him first overall. Sure enough, Manning was dragged to the playoffs by his team at the end of the season and put together an incredible run there, producing an unlikely Super Bowl win just two and a half months after his three-pick-six day.


This is an excerpt of a Grantland article by Bill Barnwell, one of the more respectable football writers in the league. I would encourage you to read the entire thing. Throwing pick sixes is not a skill (or lack thereof). It happens, and is unlikely to rear its head again this season.

If we get swept before the bye-week and Kubiak makes no change at QB, well, I won't be surprised but I'll be disgusted.

Fortunately for Schaub but unfortunately for us, he'll probably get an easy win with the Rams and "earn" a second chance.
