How Much Is Schuab Worth?

Recommended Posts

1. How much money does he want?

In 2007, he received a second-to-third-tier contract upon being traded to the Texans. As he makes $7 million in the final season of a six-year deal that averaged $8 million per year, the biggest and most important question is whether he wants to be paid at a significantly higher rate going forward.

Then he gets a reality check.

6. How good do the Texans think Schaub is?

That’s perhaps the most important question, something to which we’ll never know the complete and truthful answer. When considering the league’s other quarterbacks — via a simple exercise of “which guy would you rather have?” – it’s hard to see Schaub even in the top half of the league.

Schaub easily loses the quarterback version of the card game “war” with, by our count, at least 16 starters. Here they are, in no particular order: Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Matthew Stafford, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco (the postseason record was the difference), Tony Romo, Cam Newton, Mike Vick, Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler, and rookies Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin, III.

While there’s no reason to currently believe Schaub won’t be back with the Texans in 2013, there’s reason to believe it’s not as easy of a question as it may seem. In the end, Schaub may have to prove that he can do what Yates did in 2011: Take the team to the playoffs and win at least one postseason game.

How much would you pay to keep him if you where GM?

Well, he has a career QB rating of 92.2, better than Ryan and Vick...Id say he deserves a little more than average starter money.

are you saying he is better than M Ryan ?????

or M Vick for that matter ??????

a QB who cant stay healthy is worth nothing more than the league min.

in this case he has PROVED over and over he can NOT stay on the field

Yet when he was on the field your offense was a lot more productive and smooth than when Vick was...and as far as Ryan goes...I think anyone can choke under pressure...that act isnt hard to beat.

You can get a lot of guys to hand off to Arian Foster and throw slants at Andre Johnson. Schaub's more than that but he's had two full seasons out of five and they don't need to pay him franchise money to take a back seat to the running game and the defense now that that's what their team is built around.

Arent there 5 guys in front of the QB that are supposed to keep him healthy?

Are you seriously going to take a shot at Ryan?

Well, you have to get hit to be hurt.

I'd love to see the team you would build as a general manager of an expansion franchise. The Cowboys would protect Romo, so you'd trade them your #1's from your first two drafts to get him, grab the most high-profile LT no one bothered to protect, draft DB's with the first four picks you don't trade, make an offensive line out of late-round rookies, UDFA's, and guys you heard of once and signed for five years and 16 million, then go through cycles of firing your coaching staff every three years for getting aging Romo killed every season. It'd be like watching a series of middle-of-the-road horror movies that hint at enough self-awareness to almost be a funny parody of its genre but never do anything with it and always end with the mutant coming back from the dead and killing the last survivor right at the very end.

Im just saying, if you have a guy that isnt mobile (Drew Bledsoe, Peyton Manning) or is fragile (Matt Schaub) you have to protect them.

If you put the best offensive line you've ever put on the field as a franchise in front of him and he still gets hurt, and it's the third time he's gotten hurt for over a month in the five seasons he's been with you, you at least have to think about how much you want to invest in him holding up in his 30's.
