Falcons Possible Shaub Qb Interest

Coach Dan Quinn called free agent Matt Schaub "certainly somebody" the Falcons could sign.

Cut by the Raiders two weeks ago, Schaub is a backup only. He was drafted by the Falcons and played for new OC Kyle Shanahan with the Texans. Schaub may not be much of an upgrade on current No. 2 T.J. Yates or Sean Renfree.

Well, that does suck, but he'd basically be holding a clipboard and running scout team offense. I guess it really doesn't matter who Ryan's backup is. He's not a guy who's gonna miss snaps and if he does, were doomed anyway. Or up 56-0

I really like Matt Schaub. But.....

Yates couldn't even relieve Matt when they were up 56-0... How do you throw a pick 6 in 4 passes? Especially when your team was shutting the other team out all game!

How could he not be an upgrade over Yates? Yates was terrible last year.

Yates was learning the Koetter system. He knows Shanahan's system, and won a playoff game for the Texans using it when Schaub went out.

I don't see much difference between the two. Either one as a clipboard holder is fine with me.

Shaub has plenty of NFL snaps and success. For the vet min I would sign him and cut Yates in a second. I'm not sure where Renfree is. If Renfree surprises and beats out Yates its like, eh big deal. If he beat out Shaub I would feel good about carrying only two and having someone that could manage a few games until Ryan returned. Shaub gives me that confidence now. Yates does not. Renfree is unproven.
