Right now I am fine with Carr sitting on the bench behind Schaub. Schaub has earned his oppurtunity to overcome a bad 2013 season and start for us.
Back to Carr, he put up tremendous numbers in Fresno State but the bad rap he got from being the brother of David Carr, who was a bust, dropped him into the 2nd round but it was great for us because we got Khalil Mack and Derek Carr without having to trade up for either one of them.
how did he do that?
Pro Bowl x 2
Pro Bowl MVP
Lifetime passer rating of 89.8
Schaub has the resume to have earned the right to come in as the consensus starter. With that said I have a HUGE caveat, I am very very concerned that Schaub no longer has the arm strength to throw the ball outside the hash-marks down field and has been relying far too much on his outlets options (namely TEs and short outs) and opponents are jumping those routes.
Agree with all except it is a what have you done for me lately league. I think he will struggle like mcnabb did when he left phi.
McNabb was finished when he left Philly it was obvious to me. Shaub looks like he has something left in the tank and he isn't solely responsible for HOU meltdown.
Also we didn't trade 2nds for Schaub. Even if he's as bad as he was last year it's still not a bad trade off. Personally I think Schaub can bounce back and give Carr a year or 2 on the bench.
